Just wondering if anyone knows if our Jack W is OK He hasn't answered an email and I am really concerned he and his family may have been affected by the terrible floods occurring in and around the Denver area.

I'm fine. I just work wed-fri and my inlaws have been in town.

A buddy of mine lives in Salida which is just a little southwest of you Jack. He says he's never seen it rain that hard in years....

Hope all is well!


Time, even vintage time, goes too fast for my tastes.

I've been to that area of CO before. That is a pretty area and the Arkansas River flows through it.

Again, its been pretty soggy here. Reports show that Denver and other areas of the west got 400% of normal precipitation during the month of May. This has simply transitioned into a monsoon-like pattern for most of June. Many heavy thunderstorms and areas north of here have even had tornadoes.

I've also been traveling a lot for work. Since the beginning of the year, I've been to Nebraska, Oregon, Utah, Arizona and Alaska. In addition I've been out to locations here in Colorado.

None of this has impacted my watch buying habits. Though it seems to have cut into my following this and other forums. None-the-less... I just haven't bought any Gruen's since that early Weber stainless cased one I got locally. I'm not counting parts watches... I'm hoping that in the next month or so I'll secure another Gruen 14K purchase.

Anyway... Hopefully, I get to posting some thoughts I've had on Gruen and get some more data up for the caliber data base.

Cheers!

That is too funny Gary. I was in Seattle's airport too for a bit.
