    Laughing OT.....sort of.

    Yesterday evening, my daughter Birgitte (just turned 8) told me to stay away from the kitchen as she was preparing a surprise for me.

    So dutifully, I stayed away, but notice from afar that she was busy with crayons, paper and scissors....

    Finally she came to me beaming, with her hands behind her back, and asked me to choose hands. I chose right, and she handed me a drawing of a watch, with brown strap, that she had cut out.

    On the watch she had written with capital letters: STOWA.....:-D

    I now hangs on the wall in front of me in my office!
    Best regards, Frode

    Nice story !!

    Probably the most valuable watch you'll ever own... No money in the world can buy this sort of moments. Enjoy it at its full extent !!!

    Jorg might like it if she'd create another such masterpiece to hang in the shop!

    Never will!

    But though I as a father find it good enough to hang in my office, it hardly merits a picture. She used maybe 20 min. on it.....

    (I have lots of stuff from my kids on my office walls.)
