Grandma's Cuckoo Clock

     We have eight of our twenty-five grandchildren visiting this week. They were really intrigued by Linda's new cuckoo clock. They would get really excited whenever they heard the cuckoo, but somehow never managed to arrive in time to watch the event. This morning they were determined not to miss the cuckoo and all gathered in anticipation of the clock striking eight.

Rapt attention

     They had a lot of questions regarding the workings of the clock.  They were intrigued by the fact that the clock works off a pendulum and a system of weights and gears and has no battery.
