In Your Pocket

Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.
~Henry David Thoreau


Pocket watches today. I don't wear any kind of watch, but pocket watches are a temptation.

I love pocket watches, too! And these are wonderful examples of upscale models.

These are all beautiful, but I must admit that the Russian wooden watch really caught my fancy. :-)

Don't suppose you know of the "pendant watches" we used to wear in the 60's? I had a pink one! They looked a lot like pocket watches.

I did not know about '60s pendant watches, but I like the sound of them!

Jama, did Tom Hanks' character have a pocket watch in Polar Express? I haven't seen that movie for a long time, but I can picture it.

Yes, I like the look of that wooden watch, too!
