When I got to Dad's today I called Bud Milner Clocks and he came right over.
Older guy, this is his retirement job. He's from Dallas but has lived in Atlanta and Jackson MS. He had a clock shop in the Promenade when Mother worked at Evert's. His real job has always been managing construction for Club Corp.
So much in common with Dad. Too bad that we hadn't called him before. I bet he and Dad would have been friends.
He took the front off the clock and pulled out the works. Some wires were tangled and he tried to get them straight right then. Have either of you ever seen the inside of that clock? I had no idea how to take it apart.
Dad said that the clock used to have wooden works. I didn't know that either.
Bud couldn't get the wires straight and he will take it to his shop to figure it out. Since he is in the process of moving the shop he wont pick it up until he has a place to work on it. He will have it done before 9/1.
I asked Dad about whether he wanted the clock at the Forum or not. I think that he is thinking about you Dave. Bud can move it and the other clocks if we want him to.
The lawyer who is working on the bus accident lawsuit called to say that Dad will get $25,000. That is after the hospital and the lawyer have been paid. Dad will get a check tomorrow morning. They will need to go and get the signatures notarized. I think that they will go to Chase for that.
I plan to go with.
