I purchased this old wind-up clock for a quarter at a garage sale over the weekend.
It appeared locked up and non-working, but my husband removed the back and oiled
some of the "works" inside it.
Now it ticks away, keeping perfect time.
I wish you could hear it.
There's something very soothing about it....
Now, here are some of the tweets that I "re-tweeted" this past week.
I find them especially timely.
