@ the Hotel Glendale
I decided I needed a watch, a pocket watch actually, no reason why. I went to the mall. There are no pocket watches anymore except for the antique ones that cost $400 or more.
So I went to our resident watch repair guy. This is Just in Time. It's Just to the Left of the Hotel's entrance on Glendale Avenue. It's smaller than out smallest walk-in locker.
Jack's an artist and he's managed to cram some (nice) paintings into his closet. Most notable, look up at ceiling. Awesome!
I told him I was looking for: not at all ornate, clean, simple, classic, no yellow metal. He said, "I can make you a watch for $25." I was like, you're on. Dubiously.
This is the watch he made me. IT'S PERFECT. As of this picture it's still working.
