    Hi, An experienced clock maker recently rang me at 10am. I have 2 longcase and 1 cuckoo clocks in my hall and at least 1 was in full swing.There were others in the distance so there was no where to go. I said to him that he ought not ring a clock collector on the hour, he replied that he had never thought of that. I told him that, he of all people, ought to have known that!
