This is the Grandfather clock Lisa and I have in our den.
I have always wanted a clock that chimed. We went to my grandmothers in England several times when I was growing up. The last time we went I was fourteen. Grandmother had a mantel clock on each of her two fireplace mantels. I used to love the sound of the clocks striking on the hour during the night. That has always been a fond memory for me.
Early in our marriage we had a couple of battery operated clocks that chimed, but they just weren’t the same. We bought the big grandfather clock for our twenty-fifth anniversary in 2004. I love it, and I love winding it every Monday.
My three-year old grand-daughter likes our clock. She loves to count the gongs and tell us what time it is. My nine month old grand son stops to listen when it chimes.
I hope one day when they are grown the sound of a chiming clock will remind them of the good times they had at Sheesha and Da’s house.
