A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

THE CLOCK STRUCK ONE ... TWICE


My chimes are a bit off.

Every hour my living room clock chimes two hours ahead. At 2 o'clock, I get four bongs ... at 6 I get eight.

This has been going on for months now, and as of yet, I've haven't taken the time to take the piece of junk off the wall and fix it.

Instead, I mentally adjust what time it is in my head.

I haven't even figured out why I count the bongs every hour in the first place.

Maybe I should just take granddaughter's Chloe's lead and say 8 o'clock every time it chimes. Or maybe I should lug it to work and rely on it around 3 p.m. to tell me it's quitting time.

Does your clock bongs fourteen times at midnight? Now, that would be impressive.

Daylight savings time is in a month, so it will be off another hour! Good luck!

When Charlotte ,our cat, was a kitten, she swung on the weights of our wall clock from Switzerland.If the weights didn't move, she didn't swing. , .,so we never set the clock again. We gave it to my sister-in-law and it never worked either.It looked good on the wall though.
