A Grandfather Clock Would be Nice

From my usual spot on the couch, I cannot see the clock on the wall. If I moved the candle on top of the shelf, I probably could, but I don't know where else to put the candle. Usually I just look at my computer to see what time it is, or else hit 'info' on the satellite remote. That clock on the wall is just a small, boring plastic clock, anyway. One of these days I really need to find a nice clock that will not only tell time, but look good, too. Then I'll move the candle, or else I'll put the clock in a better place, so I can always see it.

I started looking at some grandfather clocks, and, if I can find a good place to put one, I'd really enjoy one of these. I was reading that they have some new chimes added to the website - Schubert’s Ave Maria and Beethoven’s Ode to Joy. Find a grandfather clock you like, and you can listen to the chimes. I love a clock with chimes. Even if I couldn't see it, I'd still have an idea what time it is by listening to the chimes. It might take some rearranging, but I think this Howard Miller Brittany Grandfather Clock would fit into my living room nicely. It's pretty, sounds nice, and the black satin finish will fit in nicely with my decor. Over there, against the wall where I can see it would be nice.
