Cuckoo, Cuckoo, Cuckoo…

I’m in Fallon a few days visiting my dad.

For as long as I can remember, well at least 45 years, my parents have had a cuckoo clock. Here’s the one Dad has right now:

0904152055While we’ve been visiting and all during the last few nights, the cuckoo has performed twice per hour. One cuckoo on the half hour, and one cuckoo for each hour on the hour.

The amazing thing is that even though I’ve been away for so long and not lived with my parents for nearly 40 years, the clock’s cuckoos don’t wake me or sound strange.

Sounds like home… 🙂
