Living clock

Some people say that clocks have a will of their own. Well we have one for which this is certainly true. We got it as an inheritance from my mother as nobody wanted it, but we found it nice and we had been buying it together with them. When we mounted the clock it just did not want to work. It’s a clock with a pendulum and weights to keep it going. The first time we got it going, it stopped after three hours. With the second attempt suddenly one of the weights came loose from the clock and ended up on the floor. Only after the third attempt it kept on going. And although it’s not that accurate, it’s like having mother back into our house.
