When we just shifted to Solitaire we had two wall clocks and one more was added – the cuckoo clock which I picked up from Germany
The odd thing was they all chimed but not at the same time there was a difference of a few minutes and so the chiming went on continuously for a long long time Since the chimes were different the neighbours wondered about the special clock we had in our house.
It was quite a task to wind them every day as they were not digital but manual. We soon decided to two away but sadly the cuckoo clock that we retained stopped working.
We now have time pieces in every room and we have mobiles and the PC too.
Do you have chiming wall clocks?
