It appears their history in fine watchmaking ended in 2016.
:bvbvbv: :bvbvbv: :bvbvbv:

Fortunately, Pete Conrad had already passed away by then. OTOH the mind reels with gleeful anticipation at the possibilities of ways in which he could have torture tested the new Airman with A.L’s bodily orifices.
Speaking of which, I am typing this on my phone in hospital after having had my prostate removed. Lords who are careful readers may recall I was long expecting the arrival of the big C, given my history with Camp Lejeune (long story short I drove STFUS there as a double naught secret spy for the AA) so this was really a happy ending. Probably my last. Which is fine by me because I’ll be able to piss like Secratariat on derby day now and I piss a lot more than make whoopie. To be honest I was lucky to get lucky about once a month lately. Even luckier if I had a partner. Plus, for about two weeks they thought I had a brain tumor. Luckily I do not. So I should be fine and feel very thankful. Geesh these meds are loosening my to tongue. Insert ED joke here.

Thanks so much. You’re right it went great, they used a robot, and I had a terrific surgeon to whom I immediately took a shine. I’m fine, feel incredibly thankful and lucky, am cancer free, and have zero complaints. Out of pocket, this procedure cost me four dollars with my insurance. Of course it was a lot more (but still cheap as chips) with all the other things I had to have done. They’ve been racking up procedures, some ridiculous, for over a month leading up to this big day.
Narcotics make your mind reel, and I thought up a good Highmark (my order insurance company) ad, worthy of Don Draper. At least while I’m high it’s worthy. Maybe later I’ll describe it when I have something I can actually type on. I have a lot of time the next couple weeks until I go back to work (I accepted a new job shortly before being diagnosed).
