It’s ticking

I’ve been watching wind up clocks. You know, the pendulum style wind up kind. Price is important. I’m not spending much. It helps if the clock works. It’s easier said than done – to find a working wind up clock. There were a lot of Korean made clocks. And there are China made clocks. I chanced upon this Seth Thomas. That would be old. Or… maybe not. They can date back to the 1800’s. And they were a clock company until 2009. I don’t know all that much. However, it looks old and there is a Seth Thomas label on the inside. There has also been some work done to replace the glass. Henceforth, the belly reflection. I probably knew it, but chose to ignore my misshapen selfie. And therein lies the companion photo. It jiggles. It was a stand-on-this ride. Meanwhile, I need to stop looking at clocks.
