1. The ever fluid Grail Situation

    With the Wife going back to School (to finish her Geology Degree), I've had to become a little more frugal in my dreams.

    So, unless I change my mind in the next week or so, the new Grail -

    Just talked to Topper Jewelers on the Phone today, and I'm only $130.00 away.

    Beautiful classic Watch that appears to look good on just about every Strap. Soon...
