Alphabet soup gang g-t-g yesterday . . .

Feb 11, 2024,18:00 PM

. . . at our usual secret meeting place deep in the heart of the San Fernando Valley.  Sixteen of us sharing a wide variety of intriguing watches, lunch and beer.

This is just a small portion.


My favorite of the gathering was brought by Miss A.

The new Nivada Super Antarctic, shared by Miss A, a person well known to those of us who've been a part of this community for a long time.

I'm sure it was a great GTG! I miss some of our original members who have moved on from posting. The good old days!

That's only a sample of yesterday's line-up, Michael. We ran the gamut . . .

Long time since I last posted. Have been keeping a low profile for a number of reasons but am in the mood to break out.
