Mark: We hear that grandfather clock chime from time to time when you are in Denver. Can you tell me a little bit more about that clock?
Len: It’s actually my great-grandfather’s clock. It’s my father’s mother’s father, Col. William B. Skelton, who lived in Lewiston, Maine. It’s a seven-day chiming clock I have to wind up each Sunday. So it bongs the hour, and sometimes it makes its way onto the podcast. It keeps pretty good time. It only loses five or 10 minutes a week.
