In my father’s day, soldiers and sailors came back from their expeditions with “war prizes” (German Lugers, Japanese Katana, battle flags, etc…) But aside from catching the clap in Subic Bay (for the record, I’ve never been there), modern day sailors have few such opportinities. So when I traveled to Moscow, I couldn’t resist buying a few mil. surp. items at an open air bizarre, to serve as my cold war mementos.
Now this bone-fide Russian submarine clock graces the wall of my basement shop.
Bonus features…. it keeps excellent time & goes ~4 days on a wind.
So now I call it my happy meter…. I wind it first thing when I’m in the shop and make it my mission in life to not let it time out. If the clock’s ticking… it means that I’m getting shop time ….. and smilin’
Any body else have nostalgic treasures adorning their shop walls? Have some fun and show them off here.
