It's shaping up to be a beautiful day here in Calgary too! I think of Jonathan every time I strap the bubbleboy on....

My first and only interactions with Jonathan were what turns out to have been at the very end of his life. He was filling tiny orders for Pogue gaskets with me. Testament to what a gentleman he was right to the end.

So wear it well.

Aloha .
I am going to use this one for a few hours in
...... Honor To Memorial Day.
I was given this watch by a ... Retired U.S Navy Deep Sea Diver / SEAL that used it to place ..... Cremation Survivor
Burial Urns from the Sunken Ship...... U.S.S. Battle Ship Arizona BB 39 in Pearl Harbor.
This watch has Documented over ....1000 Diver by the
Original Owner Diver and placed ...12 Burial Urns into the Sunken Ship's Hull. The watch is in it's Original Condition
from when he had used it. I just wiped it down and replaced
the Batteries and it works great yet. I made a Box for now
but soon to make a better one.
Aloha and thanks for looking,
Louis / LongBike

I never knew about that Louis.
I find it quite touching that a sailor should have his ashes laid to rest beside his lost comrades.
God Bless

Busy day at work, new starter and it’s no fun inducting someone while distancing from them. Back home late and trying to sit in the garden with a glass of white but some of the mozzies are like the ravenous bugblatter beast of Traal.

Yes sir, from what I gather he was quite the character and very passionate about the hobby too.
