A step back in time

I am not sure if I mentioned what happened to the new clock we got as a wedding anniversary present from my mother and step-father?  Anyhow forgive me if I am repeating myself.  We brought home the clock on the Saturday and on the Thursday evening I was sitting in the family room and I heard a crack.  Didn't know what it was until the following morning when I looked at the clock it had a hole in the middle of the glass front and four fractures spreading out from it.  You would have thought someone had shot it.  Very, very strange.  So we took it back to the clock shop to get a new piece of glass put in.  He had never seen anything like it before.

On Friday I went to pick up the clock and took some photos of inside his store.  Everywhere you look there are clocks; just a feast for the eyes.





Here is a link to his store.  He deals with customers all over the world.

Oh WOW ! I could spend hours in that shop ! I got a nice antique grandmother clock from one of our favorite antique shops a year or two ago and it is still going strong ! I love the chime and the calming tick tock of the pendulum . I haven't seen one like it around yet. Hope your clock is all fixed up ! Thanks for sharing ! I will have to check out the link to his store ! Have a good day !

I love clocks and watches. I hope they survive for future generations who only check the time on their phones!
