When we got Spencer we intentionally went to a breeder that bred for a longer snout to avoid breathing issues.

@Chris


Start coughing uncontrollably.


I guarantee she will stay away.


Stereotypes are so convenient.

Oh dude, that sucks. We got hit with major storms last night but nothing that bad in my area. At least insurance will probably call it a total loss and you can buy a new one?

Box crystals are a silly trend. I dislike them a lot.

Titanium watches suck

If they used a sapphire box crystal people would bitch moan and complain about the milky ring

Also: Haveston NATO straps are my current favorite at the moment if anyone is looking for one. Their canvas straps are pretty unique for a NATO strap and well designed. The nylon ones are also super nice and the floating keeper is added value.

They don’t advertise that they’re “mil spec” but if you actually look up the specification it’s pretty meaningless.

So little update:

Been wearing this watch since sept 5th and it hasn’t left my wrist except for when I need to wear a G-Shock for durability purposes

I’ve really grown to prefer the smaller size. Since I got it the weather has gotten colder and it fits under the cuff of a jacket better than it’s larger counterparts.

No issues with the mineral glass.

Movement has really settled in. I haven’t had to set the time in over a week as it’s settled in to +/- zero

The only thing that’s been a pet peeve is the members of the Hamilton watch owners group bitching moaning and complaining about the glass and the price.

You can find them at 25% off if you shop around.

Edited to add requisite photo

That’s exactly what I did, and the jacket came out perfect.

This was the jacket I just rewaxed. I actually had to hand wash it because one of my vapes dumped in my pocket.

Piggybacking of @goosehd


I'm a lot more practical these days. Humping around a lot of heavy shit in my 20's and 30's would result in aches and pains.


Humping around a lot of heavy shit in my 40's means pains and bedrest.


Also: I used to be the guy that said "natural materials is best."


Not so much anymore. The front of my house sees a lot of sun, heat and humidity. I finally got tired of changing out the wooden trim in front of the house because of rot and redid the entire front bump in PVC trim.

Scars and injuries are like tattoos but with better stories.


Another one: I used to argue with people over this that and the other when they were clearly wrong. As I've gotten older I've learned to just ignore them, and I get a tremendous amount of satisfaction out of not interacting with them anymore.


One might or might not convince them that they are wrong about THIS topic, but they're going to stay stupid so why arm them with knowledge that they may someday use to imply that they are smart.
