    Mom.. as someone who is a scholar of the old west.. what u are saying is pretty much what the gold rush folks believed.. Those who left frisco for the Yukon had a pretty high regard for Eskimos.........now... that being said.. present company excepted.... many Eskimo women? were not exactly . uh....... 'traditionally' good looking.. like the panhead indians... obviously.. there are exceptions

    I got a cop car that is a crown vic.,., pursuit vehicle.. 140 mph.. I paid 3k for it.. looks like shit.. I spent 200 bucks in the last 6 years on it.. runs great ..

    did I mention the band is real? LOL.. I bought 70 of em so no big deal.. Notice that there is a paper strip? See the 'jewels'? watches do not use real jewels.. they are synthetic but... they function as bearings. The watch is so fucking cool that I wanted you to have it when I ran across it.


    hard to believe something almost 100 years old still functions. This is a small watch. believe it or not this would have been a mans watch and cost him a months salary.. LOL My thinking is that it is easy to set the time and wind.. so you don't need any special care.. Thing sat for a year and I wound it and it took right off.. real gold.. real stainless.. you won't see another like it.. people here think you are worth it.


    I get a free cup of coffee tho right?

    Damn.. I got so many watches that I did not even think of this one! this is a 1930's or 40's Wyler incaflex. NOT a dynawind. this is the original Wyler that (type) that they threw off the eiflel tower to prove how the 'incaflex' system worked.. This was far before shockproof became a thing..


    Anyway.. this is an exhibition back which I know you like and a 'mechanical' and... in perfect mechanical condition.. the case is gold and eroded by wearing...but everything that matters is perfect. you have to set and wind this watch when you want to wear it.. which is what people did back then.. Don't overwind. This is a small second hand (note the extra dial) it has a calf skin band but I have included a COMPLETELY NEW OLD STOCK 1960 CROC BAND.


    I would not do this but when I ran across it? well.. it screamed.. SCREAMED.. 'don't be a dick.. give her this one" sooooo I will send it.. Keep the others.. women need at least a half dozen watches.. But.. this one is cool as hell!


    I expect a free cup of coffee and a hug from mr texmom.. well .. I can live without the last but tell him that anyway.. I will send it monday.

    Ok.. bait? here is where we differ.. I don't give a shit about investment. sure.. I love to look up how my shit has gained in value but really don't give a fuck.


    When I am done with it? It will be worn out and need a complete restoration. which. I seriously don't give a shit about since I will be dead. 'fun along the way' is all I care about.

    I pretty much use everything I own. I am fickle of course and some stuff gets cobwebs while I do other things.. basically Hot rods and Harley's get 5k a year?


    guns get from 1k to 10k a year..

    this is not a simple thing but should be rewarding.. I give thanks to our two surrender monkey countries.. the swiss and the french for.. in the former.. throwing away perfectly good rifles that are fun and the latter.. for the horrible 8mm lebel cases that are a base for reloading....

    Swiss 1878 Vetterli.. My dad has one he got from my grandpa.. This is a 41 caliber bolt action gun with a tube magazine. wild huh? even nuttier tho it is rimfire.. Like our Henry's of the period but much more potent.., like maybe 44 mag in a bolt gun? no fucking ammo exists so the gun is a wall hanger... or......................not.


    These guns can be pretty easily converted to center fire! yay... And cases can be formed from other readily available cases which................is right down my alley.


    Sooo that will be a future project... 18 round tube mag in a bolt gun? how fucking cool is that?

    The lovely Mrs Bj will most likely claim that gun. Never seen a woman who didn't like to carry semi autos but shoot revolvers.. many revolvers are meant to fit everyones hands.. and guns made in the 1800's ? well.......... everyones hands were fairly small.. But some were big men at over 6' tall and they also liked the old plow handle guns.


    The 45 Colt should be a comfortable round for both of you to shoot out of that heavy gun. I look forward to your evaluation.

    If I wore moccasins I would be in the market for a real eskimo woman.. they chew the leather and make it really soft and comfy ... I think mom is more of a modern Texas eskimo tho.
