In every shop, barn, or garage I've ever owned there has been a Coca-cola clock. My grandfather worked for the Coca- Cola bottling company for as may years as I knew him, and he always had a Coca-Cola clock in his shop.. Because of all the things I learned from him, watching and helping at his elbow, I've always thought that a shop needed a Coca-Cola clock.
This one is a repo, not the original advertising that Coke gave away log years ago. Still, I feel like it needs to be there, to pay homage to the old man, and to remind myself of his shop, where I spent so many pleasant and educational hours.
My mom bought the clock at a local auction and brought it to me today on her way to an appointment. Thanks, Mom!
