Uncle Everett giving me my first watch. Snap from 8mm home movie.

Uncle Everett gave me my first wristwatch
now I wear an inexpensive Timex Easy Reader
with big clear numbers that today remind me
of this cherished childhood memory

    Uncle David gave me my first G-Shock and I’ll never forget that/him… I always remember how he used to drive us around in a rented car and I’d sing for him with my head on his shoulders…
