.Kalie/ Natho's Ugly Fish Clock

“Inanimate objects never live, yet at the same time live forever.” Brett Shandler
We inherited Natho's Ugly Fish Clock from our friend Mim.
Mim discovered it among her husband Nathan's Treasured Possessions when they moved in together. At her request, Mark liberated it. It's a fascinatingly weird object, so odd it's kinda cool (which fit our family perfectly). About a year later, Nathan noticed it missing and we had to 'fess up. We always planned to return it because Nathan's love for this strange blue clock is deep and true. Three years later we moved across the country, unpacked our boxes and realised that we still had it - much to Mim's delight and Nathan's disappointment.
History lesson over.
The time is near for our adventure to begin in earnest (2 weeks, 4 days). Since joining our family Natho's Ugly Fish Clock has had an identity of it's own. It is part of the eclectic DNA of our family and the history of those we love, so it will travel with us - because that's how we roll :P.
One of my favourite authors, Tom Robbins, wrote a book called Skinny Legs and All in which three of the main protagonists are a painted stick, an old sock, and a can of beans. I loved the world perceived by these inanimate objects; the story being told through their eyes as well as the humans they were with.
Welcome to the travels of Natho's Ugly Fish Clock.
It's going to be a rollicking good adventure.
