I got my very own "Pa clock" yesterday. Around Christmas time Pa let me choose from a number of different clocks he had recently gotten at an auction, and I chose Cogsworth here. Pa just finished fixing and restoring it and delivered it yesterday. It's about a hundred years old, and German. A lovely little clock, and I like the color of the wood and the design. But my favorite thing about it is the chime on the hours. It's very mellow, and sort of comforting.
All my life, clocks have been associated with Pa, and he's always had a "clock room" full of them in various stages of (dis)repair. Always fun to listen to that room around the changing of the hours. This picture, with Pa and Lacey in the clock room, is one of my favorites.
