If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck then its a Garfield. Oh and what a beautiful example.

So Geoff when is the Bulova watch museum opening again :-)

It's been open for years! In fact it never closes. Go to myBulova.com - From the header float over 'search', drop down and click 'myBulova members". start typing my name in the search box (system auto fills) and select 'watch and click 'apply'. -  Voila - there's the museum! Of all the watches listed, I still have all but 15-20 of them.

Seriously - here's something I discovered a year or so back. When I add watches, the system gives me a chance to rename the first image. I use the same naming convention for each watch. I lead with 'Bulova' and then the model I think it is, then my FULL name and last the date I added (eg: "Bulova Garfield watch Geoffrey Baker 11 08 2013"). Go to Google and select the 'image' option, search on 'geoffrey baker bulova' - bam!! almost all of them come up, except for the very recent additions to myBulova. I don't know exactly how Google indexes them, there are lots of images returned, as you scroll down, that aren't my watches and in some cases aren't even watches but it's easy to pick out mine once you recognize my photographic style. The cool thing, because the only place I post these beauites on-line is here, every image LINKS back to myBulova.com!!
