    Hopefully it's mild and passes quickly. I'm waiting on test results myself. I thought it was just a stout head cold but then lost all sense of taste and smell so they wanted me to get tested. I'm quaratining in the basement until I hear at ... I'm not feeling too bad yet at least.

    Random thought ... I wonder if the grocery store in town delivers beer?

    Let us all pause for a somber moment of remembrance For Mark's Rolex. Which has been ticking dutifully away on his wrist every day for the last 27 years (edit:28 years), but finally ground to a halt this morning. #tragic

    Holy mother of sh#% hawt damnnnnnnnn.

    Edit: Regarding the watch. If he’s been properly servicing it I’m sure they will have it up and running in no time, unless he ships it in.

    Ok that blade is just sick !!!!!!!


    As for the watch , I’d say that has to go to a dealer. Unless there’s a brave soul there willing to open the back up ?????????

    The Rolex just captured the exact moment that epic blade sliced through the time & space continuum...

    A fitting end for a year like this.

    That watch Hasn't been opened in 28 years. The oil in that watch is older than some of the people here. I think when they open it they're going to find it has ground itself into a paste. I think whoever opens it is going to be replacing a lot of stuff. Probably needs to go back to Rolex. Isn't there a place in Texas that does that?

    When a legit Rolex gives up on 2020 and a requiem is held, that is a harbinger of ominousness yet to come.

    You can put it up for raffle toward a good cause. Celebrity owned, will fetch a pretty penny during a Friday's sale!

    Truck story, ok so my bang around suburban started making some noise. Locate noise is coming from serp belt area. This turns to change idler pulley= better, but no. Change alternator = even better, but no. Change tensioner pulley, truck no longer starts !!!!!!! *^*%##^!!!!! It’s now dark , cold, and I’m in snow. Also going out to a movie. I spend hours checking connections, fuses, etc. Now I’m *%#^*&*%^^!!!!!!!!
    It’s now dark and really cold. My buddy shows up , he was stopping by to borrow a tool. He’s been a mechanic 30+years. He starts checking what I could’ve done, finds nothing. Out of the blue his son asks ( a mechanic ) did you try banging the tank ??? His dad and I look at each other like we are idiots lol. Three bangs on the tank and it fires right up !
    I can say I hate cars lol !!!! Here’s a truck that goes everyday. I drove it that whole day without issue. Started it three times while working on it. Without warning at all the fuel pump just went !!!
    Needless to say I was so sure it was a problem I caused. I never checked for another issue or the basics, tunnel vision. But hey I fixed the noise issue lol !!!!
    Ok I’m done venting lol :)

    Always look at the positive Bill (#glassisalwaysfullguy), now you have a classic which will probably go for another million miles :D

    Yes, I think it's worth pointing out that a Rolex older than many participants here gave up on the winter solstice of 2020.

    That’s some impressive oil and engineering in that watch !!!! I have no clue who fixes those. I drove past a Rolex dealer in Huntsville AL once ? I wear a Casio G-shock , that’s it.
