Methinks John could be accused of fomenting rebellion, Jezebel-style. You need to engage the old cerebellum to be a pun artist, otherwise you might just as well go pick bluebells (or harebells).

Nice watch, Chuck. :thumbup:

Re: A celebration of colour

I bought an Orange Monster once! And I also had a Yellow Mako. Both now departed. I am a sucker for blue dials and have three currently. And I have two C70s, the DBR1 and the Ascari COSC.

Re: The Golf Topic

Getting back into golf and watching the Open last week reminded me of a fantastic July day in 1990.

Re: Rolex on Posh Pawnbrokers
