Grandpa’s Clock: #FridayFictioneers

  Every time Ma sang Hickory Dickory Dock, I thought of Grandpa's grand old clock. In my head a gigantic mouse would stealthily climb Grandpa's clock. It would then twirl around in a tango with the little man playing the drums.   Many moons have transcended time and tide.
