A Tale of Time

It has long been a tradition in the GateKeeper's castle to tell the time by the rising of the sun or the setting thereof. Not something they might recommend at grandfather clocks at 1-800-4clocks at this point of our history. Nonetheless, Lady Gatekeep has always wanted a clock so extravagant and so precise that time would never be lost again. A nice gesture, indeed!

The castle has a few columns, arched beams and many a lovely curve here and there. Inside a hollow column, facing the double French doors, she should set the TimeKeeper she has always wanted--a rather majestic clock from the Howard Miller Ambassador Collection, to be precise. This Grandfather is very tall, dark and slender with chimes that could melt one's heart. Nice, indeed! Its soft dual melodies will fill the castle with peace and as darkness falls one can silence the music, if so desired. There is one of these time keepers standing firmly in NYC Grand Central Station. How romantic the sounds must be this Christmas Season.

In any case, there are new clocks to choose from that will cheer your home as well as those grandfather clocks of years gone by and of every style imaginable. And by all means, if one is interested, come see the masterful clock behind President Bush as he graciously offers his congratulations to the President elect. And please, do take your time throughout these holidays.
