This clock used to belong to the sister of the lady who babysat me while my parents worked. The clock is very heavy and is black with bronze trim. But what I love most about the clock is the little bronze sculpture on top. If you look very carefully you will see that it is of two little boys fighting over a basket of puppies!
Everytime my baby sitter took me to her sister's ( we called her Aunt Shirley) house I would sit and stare at this clock, inventing all kinds of stories about the boys on the top while eating her homemade bread and hot dogs she would always give me when I was there.
Several years after Aunt Shirley passed away her husband remarried and held an auction sale to get rid of some of his stuff. I went to the auction and was able to purchase this clock and it has had a place of honor in my home every since!
We have huge Memorial Day plans for this long weekend including cookouts, birthday parties, boating, and the Festival in the Park in the nearby city. We will be going to see Pure Prairie League on Sunday afternoon. (remember them?). Everyone have a blessed weekend and be safe!
