I decide to go with my gut, and all my blogger friend's suggestions, and hang the clock in my morning room. It arrived Friday and here is my fat ass new clock. And as my luck should have it, it is warped at 9:00. It is supposed to "float " on the wall but 9:00 doesn't want to float!!! So it has to go back and they will be shipping me a new one soon...stay tuned.
