Lordy, Lordy, BSHT is forty!!
We've come a long way, brothers! Many of you have been here to see the thread through it's infancy and first steps, those awkward teenage years (that first one, in particular, was a little....... troublesome) and that stretch in it's twenties when it didn't call it's mother nearly often enough!
Along the way we've done a lot of good. We've helped out brothers who have lost jobs, supported brothers with their celebration of sobriety, designed a watch in honor of a brother's beautiful wife and her tragic loss to cancer. And I can personally attest to the love and support I have felt with my ongoing saga of trying to adopt our youngest one!
People may say we are just a group of watch enthusiasts, but time and time again we show them that we are so much more!
Thank you all. Seriously, without you guys and the heart and effort you put into making this a different kind of place, it would just be another internet fad that would habe faded long ago. The brothers (and sisters if there are any) are what makes it special. For that, I am grateful.
So this is the point that Jay would usually link to every preceding BSHT thread.
I'm not going to do that. I'm taking what I am going to call the lazy man's approach (but one that doesn't look like a standard length Vail post!)
So here is the link to the previous thread. On it you will find everythig you need to need in post #1.
Without further adieu, let's kick off our forties with a few pics and let the shenanigans get underway!
Take a look back through memory and you'll see that those who shout the loudest rarely have anything worthwhile to say.
