    I just like it. I'm not sure why. It just works. I vote to post.

    This is great. A whole new subject but still rail related. I vote to post as well.

    You have given us an interesting essay. I would really like to see the images in a larger size, and perhaps a view of the inner workings of the watch, as youe discussed in the text.

    I, too, vote for acceptance. With this being the third such vote, I have moved the essay to the appropriate folder.

    Thank you very much for your submission.

    With Glen's approval, I have renamed the thread to the title of the essay, "Grandfather's Watch."

    I loved the essay. It was not what I expected from this site!

    Thanks to all who commented and helped. Remember that you don't have to be a "moderator" to comment (thanks SDP45).

    I wasn't sure that this subject would work here, so I am pleased to know that a few did like it.

    If you need a third "yes, I'm it. I enjoyed this personal look at things, and the story.

    That's what I like about this place...

    Sometimes I get frustrated at the lack of activity or the grumbling or when an essays gets stalled in review.

    Then something like this comes along and shows what this place is about. This essay doesn't have a train photo in it, and railroads aren't the real subject here. But it's definitely a worthy subject, and I'm glad to have it.

    That's why the rules here are few and far between. About all you need to do is write an essay that 3 folks like. It doesn't even have to be unanimous, you just have to get 3 "yes" votes before you get 3 "no" votes. If at least 3 of our reviewers say it's worth looking at, then it probably is.

    I wasn't sure if we could make it work, and sometimes I still wonder. However, when an essay like this one comes along, it makes me think the system works just fine.

    Sometime in the future I'll see about some better and larger photos, but for now, I have added one of the watch works.
