Pope Pius Clock

 Detail of Pope Pius VII's portrait on the clock 

"For over 10 years I’ve had a kitchen clock that my good friend, Laura, bought for me years ago. It sings out a different bird at the top of the hour. You may have had one a decade ago; they were a “fad” around the same time as the dreaded “Billy Bass” phenomenon!

My Dad detests the clock. When I bought my house in 2001, he personally moved it over to my house and hung it in the kitchen. Before I bought the house I was living with my Dad. I’d moved in to help him care for my mother. After she died, I remained living there for a few years; Dad and I needed each other. Finally, I was ready to move on. Dad made sure I took that “dang bird clock” with me.

I’ve been pondering buying a new kitchen clock for a while. In these days of timepieces on nearly everthing; sometimes a clock seems unecessary. But, I’ve always thought a kitchen clock not only tells time but it makes a statement..."

Very cool! The parish I grew up in was Pope Pius X. Love the tiara on Pope Pius II.
