just under 300 miles today - same watch.  might swap to the speedbird tonight for the remainder of the week. muck donalds for lunch - what was i thinking ?  YUCK ! - except for the banana milkshake  again no training today   - too much work and driving - on standby tomorrow so might get a run in before it all kicks off. not enough stuff for sale in the classifieds and not much horology in the forum as of late - lets hope things improve as the night draw in ... must look into t
