One can never have enough clocks in the house. And the amount of enjoyment a clock gives has no relation to its ability to actually keep time.
Several weeks ago we were given a mantle clock that originally belonged to Hubby’s grandparents. It keeps time, sort of, but needs work—the hour chimes do not match the actual time. Nevertheless, we love the clock and it looks good sitting on our fireplace mantle.
For years I’ve wanted a grandfather clock, but the price—ooh! Then I walked into my cousin’s store and discovered he had a used grandfather clock for sale. The price was well below our budget. To make a great deal even better, my cousin took 1/3 off his price and promised free delivery. The family discount was too good to refuse.
The grandfather clock arrived this week and looks great sitting in our living room. But it’s not yet ticking off the minutes or chiming away the hours.
