As I am now retired, Mrs5150 figured I needed a new clock. Behold!

Great looking clock....


Just remember when Mrs5150 asks you what you are going to do today and you say "nothing"...she says you did that yesterday. Tell here you didn't finish....

Nice, though a pedometer would be more useful...

I don't use clocks anymore. We only have one in the house, other than the alarm clock.

She was being loving & a little bit silly. I almost bought that type of clock myself.

I have a non-Mechanical one, that will never quit being accurate, has no hands, battery, or motor. Its a small frame with a card that says "It's Today." Always know what day it is.


Love that clock. Will have to look for one.

There's nothing that makes me feel old like being corrected by my son on what day it is, he loves that! I know the time but the days have gotten away once in a while. I still don't use my phone as a watch like the younger crowd does. My phone isn't attached to me. Having one of those in the kitchen would be useful for me.

Almost every day I wake up not being sure what day it is. I need one of those clocks on the ceiling above my bed!
