A customer recently clocks shopping at the 1-800-4CLOCKS.com Grand Central Terminal Store was viewing the highest-end keywound chime mechanical mantel clocks, in this case by Howard Miller Clocks. He commented that he had spent so much money recently on an amazing antique grandfather clock (one of the best makers of grandfather clocks, with a highly complicated movement, and in a great carved case in excellent condition) that he now thinks of his grandfather clock as his second car. We laughed (perhaps clocks humor, I guess) harder than we had in a long time, and thought this comment or joke was well worth sharing.
This grandfather clock purchase did not deter this shopper from plunking down a tidy sum on a high-end Howard Miller Wall Clock. Perhaps he will think of this new time machine as a motorcycle.
