    A while ago, my parents had some out-of town friends staying at the house for a week. The morning of the third day, they asked my parents how they managed to sleet through the night with all the trains going past the house (we actually live about five miles from the nearest railroad tracks). The guest room is right over the part of the basement where dad has his collections of model trains, but dad had forgotten to turn off the three train-themed clocks in the room (gifts from friends and relatives): every hour, on the hour, the clocks would emit a train-whistle blast, much like those that have a different bird song on the hour. Even with the insulation, three clocks were fairly loud enough to be heard on the first floor, but not on the second floor where my parents slept. They still joke about it to this day, and dad turns off the clocks before company arrives.

    How funny emjaycee…I grew up living 2 blocks from train tracks…I used to love the sound of the trains and whistles…I’d ride my sister’s bike to the end of the road and would wave at the Eng. as the train went by and he’d toot the horn…loved it…But a clock, that is something else…

    The parents got a new cuckoo clock (German) for Christmas that cuckoo’s double the hour. So at 12 you have to count the 24 chimes and divide by 2 to get the time! Then you get to listen to a little song! Fortunately it’s supposed to be silent from 9 pm to 6 am.

    Typical response to a minor irritation—get a gun!
