Guys I'm trying to find sunglasses but I cant seem to find what brands these ones are. Maybe Ray Ban?
Maldorf - what do you reco for an everyday wear watch? Nice but not over the top. In finance and typically dress business casual. I remember that you are a watch dude - from way back.
I'd go somewhere that you could go try some on. I'm very particular and some of the lenses can be too dark or even too light, plus you want something that fits your particular style.
I'm a "Tag Heuer" type myself. Always loved their watches and have a few.Maldorf - what do you reco for an everyday wear watch? Nice but not over the top. In finance and typically dress business casual. I remember that you are a watch dude - from way back.
Maldorf - you only had to say Elvis. Coolest cat what ever lived - fact!! . Was 5 when he died - I remember where I was when I heard my parents talking about it. I thought the king and Evil Kneivel were the same person and melted down. Lol. Both were my hero’s
I was 7 years old when he died and also remember where I was. We were on vacation and first learned about it on the TV in our room. My mother was a huge fan and I don't think I have seen her cry that hard since.
Evil Kneivel was a hero to me too. I had that really cool motorcycle toy that you would put his figure on and then turn the dial really fast to wind up a spring in the bike. That thing took off fast!
Holy shit I remember that EK toy. I didn’t have one but my friend who was a little older did. I remember thinking that was the coolest toy in the world. Yes - it was fast as hell - and the bike wrecked almost every time just like Knievel too!!
Man - kids today would go insane if they only had the toys we had. But we had a freaking blast. Im sure you made a lot of the stuff to play with like me. I still have scars all over from trying to jump rickity ass ramps we built - lol
LOL, yeah. I built a big ramp for the toy bike to jump. My buddy was a real daredevil type and built a ramp for his real bike. He used to, believe it or not, stand on top of his bike seat while it was moving down the street. Stood straight up with his arms held out to the side, guess he balanced with his arms. Funny thing is, he was a hemophiliac! Always falling down and getting huge bruises and needed to go to the ER then for a transfusion. It didn't stop him though. Once he fell off the tree in his backyard, must have been up over 20 feet high and hit just about every branch on the way down it seemed.
Had a crazy ass kid like that in my neighborhood too. Not sure what ever happened to him - but I would be very surprised if it has gone well.. it’s really crazy to think back about the freedom we had as kids. My mom would tell us to be home for dinner and most summer days we were out the door on our bikes early and only came back to eat. How the hell my brother and I made it through childhood with all of our limbs is truly a wonder.
