I was silent because I was searching.
Do I remember wrong or this one has, like, an animal head?

Well, as you surely know most wind-up design call for the key to be inserted from the sides, but this one's peculiar...


Dinner, see you after that.

Thanks. I must take leave of the computer as well, so it is OPEN HOUSE.

I'll take it.

Something for the night / morning owls to ponder.

I'll monitor this a couple of hours, and then in the CET morning. But I need to leave then for a couple of days. So, please crack this before I go.
