Funny

It’s funny that both Keith and I grew up with cuckoo clocks in our homes … So while in Germany we decided to buy one of our own.  They’ll ship it directly to us in Tampa. Memories of our trip, memories of our childhood. How could we go wrong?!

 

If I haven’t mentioned it before, Keith was actually born in Nuremberg, his father was in the army and he moved back to the states when he was about 2 . Today we chose to do the WWII tour and I have to say we were a little disappointed. So much history here, but not so well presented.

    Hi Mary, Looks like you are having a wonderful trip! I grew up with a cuckoo clock as well. The first time my husband to be visited my home, he slept in the room with the clock. The next morning my mom asked him how he slept and he answered he thought about shooting the bird. Needless to say, mom turned off the clock the next night!

    Safe travels,
    Elizabeth

    It looks like you are seeing some wonderful sights. I also grew up with a Cuckoo Clock, however I can’t say I was fond of it.(very noisy little bird) LOL! I wonder what Chesty will think of “cuckoo”? I hope Chesty is doing well.

    I purchased what looks like the same clock when I was there 30 ago. They shipped it, in a very light weight cardboard box. One corner was broke, but easy to fix. Guess I should have asked how they packed them for shipping. regardless I’m still enjoying it and the memories.
