My girls and me at the Christmas Open house that our family had for the friends from Certain Man’s office.
Absolutely my favorite picture
of Eldest Daughter and Her Favorite!
Middle Daughter had his name —
and went way over the $30.00 limit
to purchase this Ship’s Clock
that he had been wanting for a very long time.
She found it at an antique mall and has had it in hiding for a very long time.
To say that he was pleased would be an understatement.
For those of you who know anything about a ship’s clock,
you will also agree that this is an understatement:
Some were a little annoyed when he chose
to run it all the way around
And let it boing out the time for each and every strike.
There is a reason that so little a clock
can be heard in all parts of a big ship.
These happy days are passing so quickly.
And I feel almost devoid of cognitive thought
or creative energy.
I just want to savor these quickly passing days.
Sweet, Happy Days to all my Xanga Friends.
