NO NOT THOSE DRAWERS ,, What were you Thinking ,, Ouuuuuffffff
KaKa ..... I got some Mo Madness recently I wanted to Share , New additions mixed in here n there
WOW its been a crazy week of sorts with lots of .. well ,,, erm ,, u know really ,, it just doesnt matter much at all when i think about it .... LOL u bet ..
I feel like a dog in the butchers shop waiting for 09:00 .... YUMMY
Been reflecting on the past allot this week ,, i wanted to remember the good times and memories and the best way to do that for me was too work on my shrine post , everywhere i turn , or roll , or look here ,, i am surrounded by the best Mates ive been blessed to make on risti since 2000 , when times are bleak i can always open my eye's and be remindered with a visual stimulation about what risti means to me , My M8's & Our Watches
ive had to merge a few posts from 2003 , 2005 , 2007 well , till 2011 so its kinda jumbled ,, ill have to get the kinks out this year before posting it again BUT at the end I added the latest updates thanks to many mates , i so love my OP Shrine hope u will also or at least respect the complete LUNACY that runs rampant in my head and heart
BIGGEST Geeday m8tes from the chair down under
since the accident one thing that has driven me NUTS was that i couldnt access all my panerai treasures that i have collected over the last decade ,, some were in plastic storage boxes , some at my old office above which i never go to anymore , some in my shed ,, after my discharge as most of u would know i had to build a new place to live
FINALLY WITH THE HELP OF $699 AND TARGET ,, I HAVE WHAT I NEED TO ASSEMBLE EVERYTHING IN 1 PLACE ,, BUT BUGGER ME AND TWICE ON MONDAY I'M MISSING JUST ONE THING WELL A BLOKE CAN DREAM CANT HE
Uber sorry about the shite pic's , but i can only lift 1 arm at a time , or i fall out of the chair , so impossible for me to hold a camera with 1 hand and shoot with the other , its bloody funny to watch , i hold and shoot with 1 hand using the other to stop from falling to the floor , which im told is even funnier ,, hahahahaha ,, i shake like buggery but my trusty iphone is used to dat >>>
Here we Gooooooooooooooooooooooo , Lets start at the old office where i held most all of my TREASURES >>>>
had a few mates asking me about my panerai shrine and where it will fit in the new shack
hmmmmm ,, bugger not sure
the reality is i cant access that office as i used 2 , but pic's did help
my insane panerai shrine
wanna talk about addicted ,, should i confirm that now ,,, or ?? >>>
Yeah I know ......... I am one SICK Unit but hey Panerai Passion Flows DEEP DU , U Bet
Mind U I bet there is at least one or 2 other BUGGERS Out there that will look and UNDERSTAND the Madness , Say it is So Mates ???
OK now moving on after the accident i had to find a new place to live and it gave me the chance to surround myself with nothing but panerai and paneristi M8's
Wverywhere i look i'm reminded of something ever so special ,, come have a cap't cook (look)
KABOOM >>>>>>>>> Lifestyle Change
i built a small unit in the backyard , next 2 my shed
then when the time came to decorate it i decided to do this that way
now every which way i turn , every moment of the day , i am reminded of the people i love and the times i cherish , whilst i was in hospital some gr8 m8tes sent some kool things , some small and some large , anyway i kept each and every one ever sent ,, U BET ,, and i have them surrounding me everyday , kakakakaka that is what life is all about , gr8 m8tes gr8 watches and gr8 times , look closely and u might notice more than u think u see , patrizia , volker , and , kevin , rob , bo , donny , tj , angelo the list goes on and on , so 2 each and everyone ,, Tanks a Bunch ,, It brings me SMILES all Day
This is my new home and i'm surrounded by my m8tes 24/7 ,, KICK ASS U BET 8-0

Man oh mah, I don't know if the words collector even fit - museum curator, shrine maintainer, torch bearer, any of these would likely be more suitable. Thanks for sharing your home with us!!!!!!!!!!!
That has got to be at least one of everything ever created by Panerai! I'm willing to bet you might be a few items up on the OEM Panerai museum!
Nothing like the feeling....to look around a room, or in your case an entire section of your home, and see nothing but love from your fellow mates. The passion runs deep in many of the mates here....but none as deep as you, Hammer. Truth be told, you ARE part of it ALL.
Hope you get past the next few hurdles (do I dare refer to them as such?) without a hitch, m8. Know that I've been thinking about you a plenty. Always in my prayers, Hammer!
Now...stop trying to hog up all the Panerai Swag out there and start posting some stuff on the AC! LOL!!
Tons of love Hammer!

But, Alan, are you sure you survived that jet ski accident? Looks to me that you like you died and went to Panerai heaven!!! Your passion is amazing man. You know how much you mean to me. Thanks for a wonderful post.
It's you.... commitment, passion, knowledgeable, sentimental, brotherly, inspiring and sharing...it's all you!
Congratulations and grazie tanto for sharing with us:)
