Keeping Time with Mickey!
Since I like my souvenirs to be mostly practical or usable, having Mickey Mouse watches seems like a great idea.
I have a few of them, but only keep a battery in one of them at a time. When the battery runs down, I pick a different watch and get a battery put in it and repeat about once a year or so.
The first one I got was on a quiet afternoon when we had gone over to Fort Wilderness for a bit of a break in the action. A lovely afternoon spent wandering around and of course, going in the shop. I picked this watch because I loved how big it is (it is a man's watch) and because it has all twelve numbers and it easy to read. Since it was my first watch, I wore it for a number of years before getting another one. The watch face is 1 3/4 inches across, very big on my skinny wrist but very easy for me and everyone else to see!
Next up is a pocket watch. This was ordered for me from the Disney Store online as a present and is just over 2 inches across and very heavy. I don't use it very often because of the weight and needing two hands to hold it and open it to tell the time.
This next watch I bought at the jewelry store on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood Studios. I admit I used this one exclusively for a couple of years because it was so comfortable. The little button on the top right is where you press to make the face light up at night!
If you look closely you can see the reflection of my hands holding the camera in the shiny ears!!!
Ta ta for now!
