Time Is On My Mind

Today I am going off topic. I am feeling nostalgic for the watches I used to wear in order to tell time, since nowadays I just check my cell phone.

My first watch was a plain Timex, a lot like the one in the photo below. I go it in second or third grade and it lasted until I got to high school.

In high school I got a Swatch Watch, just like the one below. I loved it. I even got a Swatch Watch guard to wear over it, for protection, the next Christmas.

When my Swatch eventually broke, around 1990, I wore my brothers for a while, but I can't find a photo of his online.

Then in 1993, I was given this awesome Superman watch by Fossil. I wore it for quite a while, replaced the band at least once, but it really needs a new crystal and a tune up.

Then I bought this Superman watch, but the pin that holds the strap snapped.

I then went through a Disney Store cast member watch that I only wore for work,

 two identical marcasite watch necklaces (they were very convenient, but broke easily), and a Tweety Bird watch.

Next up was this pretty, green, Avon cuff style watch. It always made me feel pretty when I wore it.

In 2002 I moved to Maryland and bought a new watch to commemorate it, Eeyore!

And then a few years later, I got this dressy watch (it came with a matching bracelet and earrings). Unfortunately, I got what I paid for it, cheap, and it only worked for a short time. 

Now, if I want to wear a watch, it is Eeyore. 

Do any of my readers still use a watch.

Spring Greetings

It is Spring and my yard is covered in snow. 

So here is a little warmth and sunshine from Ginny and some of her peeps.

I hope you are keeping warm, too.
