We are located in Moscow, Tennessee about 30 miles east of Memphis.  My
granddaughters call me Papa.  I am a certified "cuckoo" Clockmaker, a certified
Horologist as well as a Watchmaker.  Some of my fondest memories from my
childhood revolve around watches and clocks.  As soon as I started wearing wrist  
watches (the wind up kind back in the dark ages),  when they would slow down we  
sent them to "Uncle Doc" who was a Watchmaker in Texas.  I would watch the mail  
and pretty soon my watch would arrive all shiny and running on time.  Uncle Doc  
would put a note in the envelope with an amount just for parts, and I would gather up
my lawn mowing money and send it to him.  I grew up watching my other family
members do the same.  I was amazed that someone could actually make them work,
and thus began a quest for how time pieces worked and eventually how to  repair
them and keep them working.

In my early teens, my brother-in-law was the pastor of a local church.  He had a
prominent member who collected and repaired clocks.  Pretty soon clocks started
becoming major part of my life.  I remember when I was about 12 my mother received
an 1880's Seth Thomas Gallery thirty day clock for an anniversary present.  I watched
her wind that clock everyday up until I left home to be married.  It was always a
pleasure to see how much enjoyment she got out of that clock and her daily ritual of
winding it.  Here it is 33 years later and that clock had never stopped.  A few years
ago I had the privilege of a lifetime.  I overhauled her clock for her and now she is
once again winding that clock everyday.

All my family has clocks and one of my brothers has quite a varied collection.  It has
been my privilege to keep his clocks running.  Every time I'm home I wind his clocks
and set the ones that have run down.  

I work on all kinds of mechanical clocks but have specialized in cuckoos and only do
regular clocks and quartz watch overhauls for family, friends, and members of my
church.  And I admit I sometimes take in clocks from their friends and total strangers
who see the "Cuckoo Clock Doctor" signs on my Jeep and flag me down.

My passion is cuckoos.  I've heard some say you have to be crazy to work on clocks
and cuckoo to work on cuckoos.  You better send the white coats after me because
I'm certifiably crazy about working on your treasured cuckoo clocks.

And it's probably too late now.
But I don't worry about that much,
I'm happy anyhow
And I go along life's way,
I'm reaping better than I sowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

Haven't got a lot of riches,
And sometimes the going's tough
But I've got loving ones all
around me,
And that makes me rich enough.
I thank God for his blessings,
And the mercies He's bestowed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things
went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin.
But all at once the dark clouds
broke,
And the sun peeped through
again.

So Lord, help me not to gripe,
About the tough rows I have
hoed.
I'm drinking from my saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and
courage,
When the way grows steep and
rough.
I'll not ask for other blessings,
I'm already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy,
To help others bear their loads.
Then I'll keep drinking from my
saucer,
'Cause my cup has overflowed.

When I think of how many people
in this world have it worse
Than I do, I realize just how
blessed we really are. Don't be
too busy today. Share this
inspiring message with friends
and family. May today there be
peace within you. May you trust
your God that you are exactly
where you are meant to be.
"I believe that friends are quiet
angels who lift us to our feet
when Our wings have trouble
remembering how to fly."

"Love never gives up, Never
loses faith, Is always hopeful, And
endures."

Hope you are drinking from your
saucer too....!


Have a great Day!  UNKOWN
