Here's one of those genuine pocket watches, owned by the Uncle I was named after. He died in 1959 (I was 7), and he wore bibs everyday except for Sunday. When the weather got hot on the farm, he wore less under the bibs, and use less side buttons. Come the dog days, all he had on was the bibs and a pair of work boots. When he sat down, well lets just say you didn't want to be looking at him from the side! LOL
 

 
Here he is before it got too hot I guess, hadn't gone "commando" yet.

It's an Ingraham, made by The E. Ingraham Company Bristol Connecticut
I have another fun family watch story. I cleaned out my Mom's house to move her to assisted living. I found these other two watches together. I fussed with the stems a little, but nothing moved. THEN, I looked at them and they are both frozen at the exact same time. The family house burnt in 1943. My Uncle Richard lived with his Mom after his Father died at the age of 49 in 1937. So I have to think these watches got soaked from the firemen fighting the fire, and froze up the movements.

Very nice watches. The mystique behind the two that stopped at the same time is great. I enjoy thinking about that kind of stuff. And just remember both of them are correct twice a day. ;)

That reminds me about the time I wore overalls when I went to a class on woodturning. I learned a lesson, and won't be doing that again
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

Since I'm still a working shlub, when at work I dress the part. But when on my time, I am wearing overalls. The wife has learned to smile and bear it. She's a good woman!

On the subject, the best quality bibs I've found are Roundhouse and American-made. The last company making them here.
Fall 2013 purchased Stihl MS 660 and an Alaskan 36" mill, am happy with the setup, hobbyist not a volume producer, have milled oak, hickory, yellow pine, and power poles.

I believe Pointer brand is still made in the US, but they're mighty proud of 'em. I wear Roundhouse.
I hope my ship comes in before the dock rots!

That reminds me of a story about my grandfather.  He was running a corn picker behind his "B" farmall  PTO driven he got something plugged in the header he stepped off the tractor to clear the obstruction and as he pulled it out he stepped back to the still rotating PTO shaft. Before my father could do or say anything all gramps had left on was his boots, boxers, hat and the straps from his overalls still on his shoulders. His shirt and the rest of the overalls were on the PTO.  Luckily it was in the cool of the year or else he wouldn't have had the boxers but it was a chilly ride home on the tractor from what Dad said,all 2 miles by all the neighbors houses!  :o
Just an ole farm boy takin one day at a time.
