Thank you, Donny! That's also the name of his little stuffed elephant I won for him in a claw machine, (can't sleep without it).

That's a car seat, not a stroller (or carrier as his mom would say) and he's a boy... Austin John Calvarese.

We're watching a documentary on the 1980 Philadelphia Phillies, while she cooks dinner, and it's really holding his attention something amazing.

Congratulations, Andrewthony! (And sorry about the mistaken sex-assignment; I saw the pinkish color of his shirt and was out of the gate!) The Phillies? He could do much, much worse...like the Padres, ferinstance. :evil: At any rate, after all you went through in the last couple of years, I'm thrilled that all of this has come to pass; truly, you're like that fabled phoenix we've all read about and envied at one time or another. Well done, my young Jedi knight friend... 8-)

Also, this year, it would he hard to do worse than the Phillies and their bottom of the barrel record.

Maybe so, but at least the Phillies have brought a World Series title home to Philly...we're still waiting, here in Sandy Eggo. When I was younger, I used to think to myself, Okay, so my Chargers and Padres suck. No big deal, though; I'm young, and I'm sure I'll live long enough to see it in my lifetime! Nowadays, post-911, post-Fallujah and post-PTSD, with its expectation-of-a-foreshortened-life symptomology, I'm not-at-all sure of anything, especially as I draw closer to the age Conjurer was 20 years ago... :???:

Hey, 4oD, while I think it sux like an Electrolux that you had to spend that long a time in the office, I sure do like that Enicar chrono an awful lot. I have a three-hand Eni, and I love it el mucho... 8-)

Thanks Mort. Found that one years ago at an estate sale. The top pusher was missing, but it kept time. Fast forward to last year and my watchmaker made a new pusher, did a COA and it was back to life. I also have this two hand Enicar Ultrasonic from the early fifties. A real beauty like yours.....
