Today will be sunny with a high of 7C(45F). UV index 5 or moderate.
Tonight will remain clear as the temps drop to -7C(19F).
------------------------------------------------- -----
After I pulled the mechanical movement out of the grandmother I decided to give one last attempt at getting the movement to run. After working and bending the verge so that it just cleared the top of the escape wheel gears it seemed to work on the bench. so I installed it back into the case, hung the pendulum and heard the gentle tick tock. I let it run for a couple of hours before installing the face and hands. Wonder of wonders it's still running this morning though it lost about 5 minutes overnight. I should be able to correct the time keeping with the pendulum length. :) I may have to place a clock repair shop next to the bakery and the granddaughter's pizzeria. :) If I keep this up I'll have to get the area rezoned from residential to commercial. :)
I may give the cuckoo another try in the near future.
Today I with the sun shining brightly I'll have to get Abbey out on the gopher trails as I missed yesterday due to clock repair and a light rain.

Hi, Tony! Is the Queen working late tonight? I don't see her car in the driveway! Hope everythings' OK!

Congrats on fixing the grandmother clock! I think you can do about anything if you put your mind to it and have a little patience!

Take care!

congratulations on fixing the clock. I know it was something you were hoping to see work. Lovely day here but there is still a wee chance of rain later on. So far so good with temps up near 70F. Time to start planning dinner. Have a great afternoon.
