I had some time on my hands, so I went out walking with Miss P. The good thing about walking your dog (especially one that walks as slow as Miss P) is seeing all the details that you miss when driving past. We were sauntering along when we came across this.
So I immediately started singing the Hank Williams song “I saw the light” to Miss P and fortunately there were no other pedestrians out and about. But I was thinking about time.
Here’s another sundial, with the motto “Tempus fugit”. Yes it’s true, time does fly. This one was put up in 1910, and it still keeps perfect time.
The clock in the courthouse is still working as well, but it has required considerable more maintenance.
Over in the center of what passes for downtown, this clock has been attached to a store since the 1930’s. It’s motto “Dum Vivimus Vivamus is various translated as “while we live, let us live” or “let us enjoy life” or “let us live well” and all of these are good slogans to guide your life, whichever one you choose (assuming that you know Latin).
It was once important to the public to know the correct time, and many banks and all train stations had large clocks. Now, you can just look at your phone to know the correct time. Which is flying by.
