Today things were pretty nice.

I shared a ride from Denver down to Colorado Springs with Art B. to attend the Colo. Springs NAWCC annual mini-mart where we split a table. Talked watches and other stuff. He has some great watches and i got to see a 50th Anniversary in hand too. Art sold a few watch. I didn't sell anything, but the other part of the show/mart was an auction. I bid on a ultrasonic watch cleaning and a balance poising tool; the latter I won. Another member had more money and out bid me for the cleaner. BUT I came home with a C&E Marshall "Peerless" watch cleaner, that is so complete, it came with the original box. Got a great deal I thought; it came from a watch maker that retired in the Springs.

Well, that was my big tool purchase goal for the year. Now what?

All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me
