I Think I May Have A Problem

So, I’ve been “collecting” clocks and tinkering with them till I can get them to work fir almost a month now. I’ve been buying them to sell some of them but I haven’t quite gotten around to letting any go yet. The wife is concerned. And then add to that, I’ve gotten into checking estate auctions and that’s just made it “worse?”

So, while at an estate auction recently I came across this gem. And now, it sits proudly in my dining room.

Then, while at another, I came across the Ridgeway which was so cheap I couldn’t possibly pass it up.

And I won’t even mention all the other clocks but I will post a few pics of about half of them. Also won’t mention the 150 year old White SM Co. sewing machine, other antiques, and art.

Should I seek help?

Good evening, Daddy!

Well, you could look at it this way: This obsession with clocks probably keeps you off the streets and out of saloons!

Best regards!

"HI, BILL!!!"

Glad to know I'm not the only one.
