I Have $24 Leather Straps On Both My Garmin Fenix 6s And They Look Great.

I like leather straps on my Garmins. It really started when I got my Garmin MARQ Explorer with its gorgeous (initially) $250 strap. No question. That is the nicest leather strap I have seen for a Garmin. But, I did not want to spoil that strap wearing in 24×7, especially with a lot of sweat or swimming (though Garmin claims that this will improve it ‘patenia’). So, I experimented with some other cheaper leather straps — including Garmin’s much cheaper, standard leather strap.

They were ‘OK’ but felt ‘plasticy’, didn’t have any stitching and tended to show scratches. So, I continued looking on Amazon and eBay. A couple of months ago I came across these $23.99 TRUMiRR straps. I got the darker one. It looked great and it did not quickly show wear-and-tear like the previous one. So, I got the light one too. I now have them on my two Fenix 6s. I think they look great and they work amazingly well. I stopped wearing my Garmins when I shower so as to stop getting the straps wet. It will become interesting next Summer when I start swimming. Will I start wearing one of my many silicone straps. I have never had a nylon strap and really should try one.

But, I wanted to share these TRUMiRR straps with you. I know you will be happy with them. All the best. PAX.

The First 2019 Christmas Trees In Place (Partially Lit) — 8 Days Earlier Than Last Year; Two More To Go.

by Anura Guruge

She has an even SMALLER one on her desk.

Teischan (12), unashamedly, lives for Christmas — and has for most of her life, once she worked out what it was all about.

She starts talking about Christmas in September!

When she was younger we could dictate as to when preparations for Christmas would come. But, starting last year she has taken matters into her own hands. When she was little we waited until at least the first week of December before we started.

For the last couple of years she can do it ALL without help. She can — and will — put out all the lights by herself.

She knows where HER artificial tree is stored and can go get it and set it up by herself.

Last year she set it up on November 17. The previous year it was November 27. At this rate she will have her tree up in October of next year!

She still has to wait for us to get the real trees. But, she will start nagging soon.
