What are friends for...

A brief post which was temporarily delayed by my putting these photos in the wrong folder....
I was in New York at the end of december to visit my daughter.
But it was the perfect opportunity to have lunch with Michael.
So here is the Modern at MOMA, a lovely restaurant whose chef's specialities are Alsatian cuisine.
Annd here is Michael's new Vacheron, which he has already posted.
My apologies Michael for getting you out of focus a bit. But at least your watch was in focus! smileycheeky
Best,
Joseph

Wonderful sentiments Joseph, and looks like a great time was had.  After reconnecting with you and others at SIHH, albeit too briefly, I'm reminded of this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:“A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere. Before him I may think aloud. I am arrived at last in the presence of a man so real and equal, that I may drop even those undermost garments of dissimulation, courtesy, and second thought, which men never put off, and may deal with him with the simplicity and wholeness with which one chemical atom meets another.” Of course, Emerson also said, "Don't tell me quotes, tell me what you know".  enlightened

His locked, letter'd, braw brass collar Shew'd him the gentleman an' scholar; But though he was o' high degree, The fient a pride, nae pride had he; But wad hae spent an hour caressin, Ev'n wi' al tinkler-gipsy's messin: At kirk or market, mill or smiddie, Nae tawted tyke, tho' e'er sae duddie, But he wad stan't, as glad to see him, An' stroan't on stanes an' hillocks wi' him. Thanks Alex angel
