My “Constipated” Clock (Updated)

When I left my wife and moved out of the house, I left almost everything behind. One of the things that she offered me later was my Centurion chiming clock which I had bought with my CITGO credit card. She didn’t want the clock; it was too noisy. That clock is now many years old and still works like a charm. It requires winding only once monthly, and its chimes greet me each morning…well, most mornings. During the years that I had a roommate, I was asked if there was a way to mute the clock, which is possible as there is a mechanism for turning on/turning off the chimes. The only thing is that, when the chimes are turned off, the clock, instead of chiming on the hour and half hour, makes a strained sound as though it might be constipated. Now that my bachelorhood has been replaced with a spouse, the chimes are once again on. I never hear the clock during the night, but I hear it each morning as it chimes five times, the time I usually rise. I never wear a watch, but I depend greatly on my chiming clock, my no-longer constipated companion.
