    Off topic You never know who's looking!

    There I was last Monday night, sitting in the airport in Seattle, waiting for a connecting flight & minding my own business when a very nice young couple sat down beside me. The gentleman fired up his notebook computer & began to look at pictures of his G-Shock. It kind of struck me as odd, but what was even better was that his wife wasn't rolling her eyes saying "Yes Dear" every time he asked her opinion about a shot - she actually seemed interested as well! I politely asked "You're not a WIS by chance, are you?" to which he proudly replied "Why yes I am!". A true joy to have met WhtShadow & his lovely wife & have a short discussion before our flight left. So beware, you never know who's watching. What a great community we have here, to not only discuss watches but to meet each other. Great to have met you Dave & I look forward to meeting others in my travels.

    Wow. You never know. I wish I saw more G-Shocks around here. Meeting another forum member by coincidence would be even better.

    Wow what a coincidence. Not just that you met, but HOW you met, he just happened to had been looking at watches while you just happened to glance over. Go figure...That's a really wild story. So which watches were you both wearing? I'm guessing he was wearing his MTG? Were you wearing the Raysman?

    No, until I get the Raysman repaired (broken case back screw) it will be a sun collector. I was wearing (heresy, I know) my SAR & took my new PAW 1500 along; I really don't recall what Dave had on as his computer pictures were so great.

    nope, he was wearing his GWM5600. and im sure of it.

    its faith brought u guys together. and sounds like he has a very cool wife.

    i suggest whenever we go traveling, we should wear a WIS/WUS sign. like a badge or t-shirt or something or a walking billboard.
