Today I met Carolyn Nottleson at Luby’s Cafeteria for an early lunch. She had been in Austin for several days but was getting ready to go visit her sister-in-law for a few days.
After lunch I took my watch to Fast-Fix in the mall to see what ails it. They had installed a new battery only about four months ago but the watch kept stopping. They checked the battery, which was still okay, but they installed a new one anyway and cleaned the contacts. If this doesn’t solve the problem, I’ll just get a new cheapie watch instead of spending a lot on repairs to this old watch. Out of curiosity, I checked my inventory record and discovered that I had bought it in July 1995 – a bit longer ago than I remembered!
