Abbey and me had a good walk yesterday. We met a lady who walks 3 dogs along the same route as Abbey and me take. She had bad news about one of her dogs. It's old, 12 years, and is having intestinal problems. It sounds like the same disease that did my previus dog buck in. Nothing stays in the intestinal tract long enough to give nutrician to the dog. I guess she'll have to euthinize him.
I worked on the Cuckcoo movement for 2 hours yesterday but there's just too many bent parts for me too fix. O Well I have another Cuckcoo in my collection thzt is in fine working condition.
Today I may use the quartz movement I was going to use in grandmother and put it it a small gingerbread clock case I have. the case is probably over 100 years old but had no movement when I bought it at a garage sale. Using a small piece of rare eath magnet and a reed switch I sould be able to trigger an electronic westminister chime I have in the hoarde. The poor old clock case will never know what hit it with all the electronics installed in it.
Time for coffee with the Queen.

Good morning Tony. Sounds like its going to be a great day for you. The Gingerbread clock sounds fabulous. Hope it works out for you.

Rain today with bouts of sunshine so no lawn getting cut today. It can wait till tomorrow, no rush...

Looking forward to a quiet day here. Will catch up on some reading and with dark skies hovering around, it will be nice for napping later.

Have a great day and stay well.
