"Hi Paul. My Dad used to mend clocks and watches as a hobby and the world and his wife used to come. He was very good at what he did and rarely got it wrong. However, in one particular case this fellow kept bringing his watch…"
"I have done that Paul. I have also pretended to be taken in but with a sting in the tail. I can imagine how upsetting it must be to believe such rubbish. I was once asked that if I gave them my password, bank details…"

So pleased that you like “ Man without a gun “ Clint Eastwood.
