Hello and Happy Thanksgiving!

Post by 2cruisin » November 27th 2013, 5:37pm

Hey all, a quick note to say hello and introduce myself. My name is Paul, I've lurked for a little bit, like what I see and decided to register. I appreciate having my registration approved.

I live on Long Island, am 58 years old, married with children, and work for a not-for-profit that provides health, life and retirement products to church employees.

I don't have many watches, but I do wear and enjoy the ones I own. For fun I enjoy cruise vacations and riding my motorcycle, ergo the screen name 2cruisin. I use variations of that screen name on other sites, so if you see me around, please feel free to say hello.

I'll sit on the sidelines for a while so I can learn the dos and don'ts, and I'll try not to post stupid shit, or make meaningless replies to threads in order to increase my post count.

Have a happy holiday weekend, Paul

I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Howdy!

Great group of guys here. Stuff going on that you won't find on the other watch forums and I am not even referring to the many, many, many, many sexually, politically and generally distasteful comments and conversations either!

Welcome aboard.

Yup, strips them clean, forcing them to have member names starting with numbers or even more degrading, all lower case letters

I'm with you on the lower case letter thing.
John was in charge of avatars when I joined. Since I like the avatar he sold me, I'll deal with my donated forum name.

Yup, He really took me to the cleaners on my member name, but I think he hooked me up with a rather handsome avatar.

All mine have names and I say good night to them before I go to bed.

I have owned many watches but,to date, have never cherished any of them.

Welcome and good luck.

I not only eat with my pecker but I, also, find your intro post too perfect and according to posted guidelines that I have no choice but to not trust your intentions.

Welcome. And I don't say that very often. Particularly lately.
We called another exterminator to take care of the rat problem in the basement. This one hasn't come out either.
