Grandfather Clocks – Part of Growing Up

by Johnathan Livingston

When I was young we visited my grandparents regularly. I visiting them on the weekends. I liked their house because it was stately and very comfortable. Most of all, I remember the Grandfather Clock they had in the corner of the room. It was impressive and everyone really liked it. It was the focal point of the room.

We used to sit in the room and discuss world affairs, political events an all of the key issues of the day especially that impacted our daily lives. It was very pleasant to be in the room and listen to the melodic chimes flowing through the house.

I how great it was to celebrate holidays, special occasions and events at my grandparents home. I still fondly recall how the rich chimes filled the house on special occasions.

I recently visited an antique shop that carried many different types of Clocks. I immediately recalled my grandparents grandfather clock and decided that I should get one for my family. There are currently many models available. There are inexpensive key wound models that quite affordable.

Grandfather Clocks typically have an Oak or Cherry finish. They also chime on the hour and the half hour.

My Grandparents gave my father their Grandfather Clock as heirloom. My siblings and I were very happy about this. Now I am shopping for a Clock for my family and I am looking forward to continue the family tradition also.
