Where Does Time Go?

I found this vintage timepiece on pinterest. When my hubby was getting ready to marry me, I bought him a pocket watch. I had it engraved and I know he has it here. I will have to find it and post a photo.
This google image is Ithaca Calendar Clocks. I keep searching for a photo of one my folks had. I wish I would have, for once in my life, defied my father, and had my friend Steve Keller repair that old clock and bring it back to it's glory. I think about that clock all the time. It was magnificent. Someone had painted it a horrible shade of green but it was beautiful and so lovely with a pendulum swinging to and fro. It is something I still think about.
This is about as close as I could find to something similar to that old clock. I often wondered about it's history.  Funny how people cast aside treasures like this.
I am not a fan of government controlled health care. I loved my old healthcare where I chose where I wanted to go. I am not a fan of doctors and hospitals and procedures. It all seems so uncaring and the cost is out of sight, considering the shoddy service we receive.
If you pray, I could really use some prayer. Lots going on right now and I am in limbo over it all. Hopefully I will have answers soon.
I always try to be thankful, in all things, although all things are not always what I want.
I am going to continue to be me. I hope you will pray. Lots to pray for in this world today. Stop by and visit Thankful Thursday

I agree, those old clocks are really beautiful. It's amazing how many things we get rid of only to find out later what treasures they really were. You have a wonderful day my friend, hugs, Edna B.

Whatever you need prayer for consider it done. You've always been in my prayers, but I'll focus on you more.

Have a blessed day. Big hug. ♥

I no longer own a wristwatch, yet I'm certainly enamored with pocket watches. (I wonder if something might be turned into a necklace pendant?) We've a Register wall clock that belonged to my parents. Now that you mention it, I should free it from the packing material and see if I can find the key to wind it!
Yes, I remember our last conversation. My prayers are with you, dear friend.
