No, I don't wear a watch anymore, but I do own 3: bright red bracelet style, goldtone stretch band, green leather one. I don't even wear my wedding band anymore - too small. My diamond engagement ring is getting too small also. Sure must have had small hands at one time. My husband rarely wears his watch (too heavy) and he lost his gold wedding band in the garden. So, we appear unwed. That causes a problem now and then.

But, we keep clocks all over the house, including the bathrooms.

The last three times somebody gave me a watch, the wristband was too small. The watches lay in drawers until they eventually got removed.

My name is Eva, and I am a watch-wearer.

It all started when I was 8 years old......

@Eva,
I'm even looking for a new watch just now. (Unfortunately, all I'll like are in the range of $500+ - so I'll try the duty free shops next months ....)
Got my first very own at the age of 9, at my communion (before that, only an old one from grandpa)

I always thought I was an odd-ball for not wearing a watch. Guess I'm in good company. I wore a watch regularly for all of 2 years in my life (college). There's a clock in my car, a clock in my house (now there are many), a clock on my cell phone, a clock at work.......

@edgarblythe,
Hey, Edgarb, my man's fossil watch is way too big for me (besides being garish faux golden). It's yours for free if you'll only visit us again.. (trying to picture you wearing it, almost as strange as me wearing it). Why did I buy the thing - the woman's watch was too damned dinky. (I've gotten thinner, I should take out one or two of the connector things.)

I had an early-ish fossil watch that had a certain silvery weathered look and roman numerals, which I liked at the time. It was in my car when I went into a chain type shop to get a new car radio all those year's ago. And gone after I drove away. Nah, they didn't know anything. So, I've a soft spot for fossil watches.

@ossobuco,
Well, if I can ever get out there, I just might hold you to that. Onliest thing, it's not gonna fit on my wrist. I would have to order a larger band.

@edgarblythe,
I'll have to measure the clunker.

Just looked harder at it. But I remember that one can add and subtract the connector thingies. I'll make inquiries.

Oh, and it's not thaaaaat garish. I have this tendency to exaggerate.

I've just studied Fossil referring sites, oy vey, so much for design savvy. I do see I bought this somewhere around late 2004, by looking at the info in the small tin box, which I kept since I like small tin boxes. I think this is a lost cause.
So it goes.

Well, hey, c'mon over anyway, and try some of our local paletas..

Diane and I took Walter to La Michoacana, home of superior paletas (and apparently lunch stuff).
http://www.dukecityfix.com/profiles/blogs/as-the-days-get-warmer-try-la?xg_source=activity
Walter didn't take many pictures (surely a temptation) as there was a nice big family in there not to disturb.


I chose, after much trouble, uno(?) pistacho, and walter, a pecan, and diane, a mango and whipped cream thing.
I swear, my pistacho bar was one of the best things I ever tasted. Among other matters, it didn't drool down my arm as I was trying to eat it. These folks know what they are doing.

I wish them success in the wide world, but, on the other hand, I like the place as it is.
Maybe they can write a Paleta Book. I'd be for that.

@ossobuco,
It all comes down to I can't afford to make any trips these days. I would love it, but -

@ossobuco,
Ah, on investigation, I see they are now in Houston too.

I see no place to just tell them I like them online. Not that I know I'd like the place in Houston.

I did buy a new watch in the USA two weeks ago: 25% off due to sales plus 15% off due to signing the ****'s-card (which I actually didn't).
And it's the watch I was looking for: just time (twice) and date (perpetual), solar-powered ...

@dyslexia,
I have a wrist watch and a pocket watch. Don't use either. My Blackberry gives me the time and controls my entire schedule.

I love watches but sadly cannot wear them. Kill them, one and all. Apparently I'm electric. lol
I've got a box of them. One day, I'll make a montage.
