As any of you who have followed Ken Coopers stories you should remember that he spends lot of time in the local pub so enjoy what he says is history of this fine Omega and he failed to tell you my other vise rich creamy Ice Cream.
Mr. Hans Hanllon was a perfectionist regarding his health as anything not "within excellent health standards" he wanted corrected ASAP. Years ago Hans had purchased a bright, well made Omega timepiece that he just thought the world of, He saw to its care & cleaning on a regular basis. Lately Hans noticed the watch was too tight for wear on his suddenly massive wrists and a quick trip to the scales explained why....Han's had gained a lot of weight and in a short time. Rushing to his doctor it was quickly discovered Han's had a tumor that was affecting his metabolism and that was the reason for his recent rapid weight gain. Hans insisted on an immediate operation to correct this problem..he wanted it done today ! Over the MD's objection he was admitted to the hospital & scheduled for surgery the next morning. Brenda Heatherface, his lovely sweetheart, came to take his Omega home & give Hans some of her famous triple aged bean soup. Even though he knew he was not supposed to eat Hans quickly devoured 3 large bowls of the wonderful soup. The next day in the operating room with the surgery almost completed the surgeon only had to cauterize the wound area. Just as the surgeon started to cauterize the area Hans released a super amount of methane gas from his body cavity into the operating room (OR), due to the triple aged bean soup Hans had consumed the night before, and there was a huge & mighty explosion that blew the entire medical team out through the walls and literally vaporized poor Mr. Hans Hanllon. It was a sad & heartbroken Miss Heather face that sold Han's terrific Omega watch to Girard while she sobbed about the late Mr. Hanllon and offered Girard a bowl of her home made triple aged bean soup. Wisely Girard bought the splendid Omega but declined the soup as he explained to Miss Heatherface he only ate greens that he raised and possibly his one and only vice was drinking Diet Soda. Girard offers this marvel of timekeeping at a great price & you can use his lay away plan to buy it.
