Wordless Wednesday: There's a Cuckoo in our House

Wordless Wednesday: A Cuckoo in our House

 

 

We received this cuckoo clock about 35 years ago from my wife's Mom. It came from the Frankenmuth Clock Company in Michigan, and each of the siblings received one.

 

Our kids were young and thought it was great fun, and we used it for years in our different houses . Thankfully you can turn it off when you don't want to listen to it...like all night long!

 

It's been packed away since the move from Boston 15 years ago, and since we have the grandkids visiting now and then we just recently decided to get it out. One of the gears needed repair - thanks to Bob's Clock Shop in Oceanside our cuckoo clock is back in business.

 

The grandkids haven't seen it in person yet but enjoyed the video we sent - with the clock striking 12. This is a short version. It goes off on the hour with music ("Valderi, Valdera" - The Happy Wanderer), plus a single cuckoo with different music on the half hour (unless it's been silenced!).

 

Our Grandfather Clock chimes are turned off as well! I suppose we'll have to let those play for the kids at their next visit, too!
