“Simon, you stink,” Muriel rolled over in bed and whispered gently to her husband of sixty-four years. “Simon you stink” was just her way of saying “good morning my love” and she has been repeating it every day since, well, since he began to stink. Simon died at the age of eighty-four, just after dinner on one bitterly cold December evening. Muriel couldn’t be sure about his exact time of death. It must have been pretty near 6:30 when she returned home and found her husband floating butt up in his own murky bath water. Persaud told Muriel that Simon could have one of his attacks anytime. Told her to place one nitroglycerin tablet under his tongue then call 911. But Muriel did neither - would have but couldn't - because Muriel was blocks away when that rascal Mr. Death decided to pay her poor husband a call.

According to the Chinese lunar calendar, on February 19, we entered the Year of the Goat. Let’s take a look at eight pieces that honour the Year of the Wood Goat. Arnold & Son HM Goats Special Edition Part of the Royal Collection, the HM Goat by Arnold & Son is beautiful example of Haute Horlogerie inspired by the Chinese art of wash painting. The white, mother-of-pearl dial features a hand-painted miniature of a family of goats feeding on leaves. Just as the earlier Arnold & Son pieces inspired by the Chinese zodiac, the HM Goat too is powered by the hand-wound A&S1001 caliber. As the goat is the eight animal sign in the Chinese zodiac, this piece is limited to eight pieces, a lucky number in the Chinese culture. C XP Urushi “Year of the Goat” Once again Chopard turns to Urushi, a traditional Japanese lacquerwork, to handcraft the dial of this new zodiac watch. As traditionally represented in the Chinese zodiac, the goat is a peaceful creature, even if it cannot bear injustice, which.
