This topic took me a little while to decide what was the most important sound of my childhood. But once I found it I was on fire to write it. I even got out of bed to start writing this post. I added a little video but it made my typing work too slow, so I got frustrated and went to bed. This morning I am ready to finish up.
|Mary George 1952, Clock is on the TV|
It was a wedding present to my parents. It lived on top of the TV when I was a kid in Whitestone, New York.
|Mary 1965 Graduation|
In Fort Lauderdale Florida it lived on a half hutch in the living room. Here it is hidden behind my high school graduation cards.
I don't remember how it came to be mine or what year I received it from my Dad. I believe I have had it since I left home at 19.
The chimes start about 30 seconds after the start of the video.
