It was in my brother's garage and was very dirty and need of repairs. I brought it home and spent a little bit of time today cleaning it up and working on the clock mechanism. It is now working in our "Brown Room" and appears to be keeping time correctly.
I only wish it chimed like the one in the family room. The living room clock needed winding every 28 days or so. I remember watching Dad take the key to wind it. Strange how this is one of my childhood memories. Such a small event, etched into my memory.
I thought Mom was going to keep that one and has it in the garage at the new place. I asked her about it on a visit a year or so back and it was given to another family member. I hope it keeps great time and I'm glad it's with family.
Do you have a memory like this associated with a clock? Just wondering.
