    Ok guys, here it is, as promised, Vlad finally got to the White House!!!
    You can see in the back Washington Monument (Obelisk) in a first few pictures.
    I hope you like it because we had a perfect weather and beautiful day and Vlad enjoyed flexing his colors in the sun! He'll be soon on his way to Canada.



    Thanks

    Was just thinking, I bet Gen Jackson on his horse doesn't get to see too many Vostoks either

    Vlad has arrived in Canada. I will reacquaint him with his cousins, take him on a bit of sightseeing journey and send him on his way to Svorkoetter in Ontario. It's warming up here, so no REALLY cold shots, but lots of snow to make him feel at home.

    Uh-oh, I just received some news about Vlad.

    Mr. Bergen will fill us in.

    Vlad's Visit - Part II

    Okay... Today started off great.

    This is my yard, notice this is April 16 and there is still a few feet of snow in a lot of places.

    What better place to show in Canada than the Mountie's Depot:

    Then Vlad visited the school where I teach (I'm on education leave this year) I would have taken pictures with some of my students, but division policy prevents me from posting anything to the Internet without prior parent approval.

    The secretary, or "Chief Commandant" of the organization:

    Then... when I was leaving Vlad took a spill out of my hand. Dull thud right onto his face. The thud echoed in my stomach as I literally gasped and bent to see what happened.

    So. Small crack at 3:00, sweep hand and minute hand off. Not working. I opened the caseback at home and no balance wheel spinning. I put the hands back on, but the sweep hand refuses to stay put and I've left it free in the case. So...

    I will take the injured Vlad out for a bit of a spin tomorrow to show off some of my town, but he will be packaged off to Bloodtkr at the end of the week, get sorted out, and be back on his way to Ontario. I feel absolutely awful that the watch took a tumble in my possession. Worse still that it has ceased to function in such a spectacular fashion. I'm normally crazily retentive with my watches and ultra careful, so this makes me feel sick. Thanks Daniel, and the rest of the group hopefully, for understanding the "Trials of Vlad" and I hope to get him on his way again.

    More pics tomorrow. Albeit without a working Vlad to accompany me.

    Again. Sorry. <Sigh>

    I share your feeling of terror!
    I felt it when I read this post.
    Sorry for the accident, I guess Vladimir is bound to be injured throughout his life.
    He started wit the sunburn!
    Hopefully everything will end up well.
    Good luck, keep us posted!
