Clocks are on my list of things that I have always have been drawn to.
I love the ticking of multiple clocks which are out of sync.
I love clock shops.
I have many small clocks and some I have had for many years.
I like loud clocks and quiet clocks but I don’t like chiming clocks
although my beloved Grandmother had one
which chimed on the hour
and so did my mother.
And I don’t care for Cuckoo clocks.
Cuckoo clocks make me think of old cartoons.
Some poor, little bird was always
popping out of the door
and getting bonked.
This clock was one of the very first things I thrifted
when I began my project to update my house “entirely by thrifting”.
He is on my dresser and is a faithful timekeeper.
He ticks very, very softly.
(Even Grandpa doesn’t want to put a pillow over him.)
