    I wear my apple watch pretty much exclusively. I have some nice watches, but with a kid, I don't see myself adding to my collection anytime soon. Also with the wife's habit of collecting houses, I feel my next watch will be the sundial in a park, that I am sleeping next to.

    - New sneakers, gloves, mouth guard, and shorts for ball hockey
    - New fall jacket
    - Thinking I may go pick-up a tow behind sprayer for some fall nematode applications. Way too many grubs and animals looking for them going on in my property.

    Treated myself to a hot wet shave at the barber. Great way to wind down after a week-long trade show - barber's name was "The Wolf" and it was at a place called Cut Throat Barber. What could go wrong?

    Shock putting my glasses back on - haven't been clean-shaven in a year!

    the flush button (s) cover comes off and provides a generous amount of access to the valves and inner workings

    Ski passes for the upcoming season.

    Heading over the mountain pass where we regularly ski this weekend to go to a parade on the other side of the mountains and there is a snow warning for the pass!

    Full cage for my ice hockey helmet, haven't worn one since high school hockey. Couldn't see shit, might as well been a sweater pulled over my eyes. Oh well, getting too old to risk my face/teeth, have to get used to it.

    Lol @ the tech guy working for a major IT company in the US calling me 1%'er

    Anyways
    - my queen bed is decades old and wrecking my back, I *needed* a new one (this I paid quality money for)
    - my living room furniture was bought used on Kijiji 7 years ago and is trashed from pets and use. I *needed* to throw them out. So I got new recliners ($249 cheapies at Best Buy)
    - my TV kept powering off, it was a 720p plasma I've had for 13 years so I *needed* to replace it. Got a $1000 Sony TV, certainly not high end, but not junk either.
    - the receiver was an upgrade, so you got me there. I didn't need it.

    I need to look up "decline to participate" to understand its meaning better.
