I Want to Be Poor Like John!!
In Response To: I am just a poor boy... ()

Great watch . . . great find . . . and I would love to have heard that negotiation!! It's just a good thing that you didn't hurt your shoulder or elbow, trying to pull out your wallet in an instant.

You have found some nice ones at the shows and on the road!!

Thanks for sharing this one!!
