Hi Eric good to hear from you mate :tu:

I’ve been very quiet these last few months as had back surgery in may so haven’t been out, although last weekend did get out a little, a few photos below

Coco’s arthritis has become very bad and she’s struggling to walk much of the time so trying to give her as much fun as I can while she can still enjoy it

:cheers:

Good to hear from you as well John  :tu:.

Sorry to hear about Coco's arthritis getting worse, I sure hope you two can spend as much time together as possible, and can enjoy these precious moments.

Stay safe mate  :salute:.

Here's a pic I took during a hike and picnic this saterday.  Just yours truly with Misses TG-24 and our little girl Caitlin, exactly the way I like it  ;).



The SAK is my trusty Swisschamp, and the beer is a Charles Quint Ruby Red that we brew in the Haacht brewery, where I work.

Hello my friends,

It's been a while since I posted something here, IT seems as if I just don't find the time to go out and  take pics these days, and if at last I do, I don't find the time to post them...  ::)

But on 3 October, I had an accident at work, got my hand stuck between a beer crate and a piece of machinery, and since the beer crates kept coming, the pressure build up for 20 seconds or so until I found the emergency killswitch.

Anyway, x-rays were taken and there was no fracture, but my middle finger and ring finger doubled in size...

So, I'm stuck at home to recover, and today an old colleague of mine invited me to go on a hike, and it was about time I got outside again.

Anyway, enough about me.

I recently replaced the leather strap on my Victorinox Inox Titanium with a NATO one, put on the protective case that came with the watch, and was surprised by how "outdoorsy" the watch looked, here are some pics I took during my hike today.





I hope you guys are doing well, greetings from Belgium, Eric

Great to hear from you Eric, I like NATO watch bands and have them (or something similar) on all my watches, looks great

Sorry to hear about your hand that’s sounds nasty, hope it heals quickly

I’m still not going anywhere to take pictures unfortunately but will post when I do

Here’s some from my yard instead




Cheers mate :cheers:

John

Hey John,

Great pics my friend (yard pics are just fine by me  :tu:), the one with Coco in the bushes is just pure gold  :D.

The one with that demon-slug is something else...  Never seen one like that over here (luckily  :sa:).

Thanks for sharing your pics, and great to hear from you mate  :salute:.

Hey John,

Thank you for sharing those beautiful pics my friend, I said it before and I'll say it again, you live in such an amazingly beautiful country, and every pic you post here is an artwork.

I'm assuming it's spring over there, correct?  Something that baffles me each time I think about it, you guys have Christmas in summer, right? But I read somewhere that there's also a bit of Christmas in July to enjoy the Christmas feeling in winter supposably (but probably for commercial purposes as well  ;)).

Anyway, I hope you're doing well my friend, and I hope Coco is doing well also.   Thanks for sharing your beautiful pics here, we enjoy them every time (I say we, because I always show them to the entire family).

Stay safe my friend  :salute:.

Thanks Eric :tu:

Yes it’s spring and warming up quickly, looks like we’re in for a long hot dry summer this year, after a few wet years

Christmas in the blazing sun is completely normal here of course, we tend to eat seafood and cold cuts but still manage a turkey with all the trimmings too. Lots of people go to the beach and parks

We have fake snow and reindeer decorations too but also lots of kangaroos and koalas in Santa hats :rofl:

In the mountains they do indeed celebrate Christmas in July although it’s not that big a thing elsewhere, fun though

Look after yourself mate

:Cheers:

John

I haven't been active here for a long time, sorry for my absence.
Thanks for all the beautiful photos from Eric, John and nakken.

Nothing special from me, just a forest and hill walk behind the house today.

Hey Peter,

All pictures are special in my opinion, if someone took the time to take a picture and share it with his friends, it's something special  ;).

And the pics you just posted are beautiful, the colour of the mushroom versus the colour of the knife handle, the sky in the second pic... All beautiful if you ask me  :tu:

And having a friend visiting this topic again after he's been away for quite some time... very special in my book.

Thank you for sharing your pics here, and welcome back my friend  :salute:.

P.S.: I'm going to send you a PM one of these days, but normally those take longer to type as this reaction  ;).

The return of the dark, gloomy days...  :-\

I'm already wishing it was spring again  ::).





These pics were taken yesterday, on the dashboard of our car. I love my Victorinox watches, and this Titanium Pro Diver is the one I bought last, so it gets some extra wrist time.

I will try to post more pics here again, I still have some from this year's summer vacation, and even from last year's vacation  :-[.

In the past, I used to take lots of multitool/SAK pics while on vacation, or even on a hike, but those days have passed. But I still take an occasional SAK Pic, from time to time.

That’s a really fine looking watch Eric, like it a lot :like:

I’m currently sitting in the park, out on a walk. This is Lane Cove National Park close to where I live, it’s in the middle of the suburbs but you wouldn’t know it

Hey Eric, I agree with John, this Titanium Pro Diver looks very nice!

Yes, the gloomy days are back. It doesn't bother me at the moment, the summer was very long and warm by Swiss standards.
It usually starts to depress me at the end of January until spring finally comes.

I also have SAK pics from previous trips, I don't even know what I've posted and what not... :facepalm:


Hey John, very nice! I definitely wouldn’t have guessed that it was in the suburbs! :o
Your beautiful pictures are a nice contrast to the gray, rainy days here in middle Europe, where the vegetation loses its green and the sun doesn't show up for days
