Pellom's Time Shop (A 2008 Item Updated with Photo from Today)

And I though Jim Croce had the lock on Time In A Bottle...

Time to sit down and comment on Gerard's essay on Pellom's time shop. But, what the heck, no matter how much time I spend on it I can't make as timely or witty comment as the essay itself. So I'll save myself some time and just say, "Time to go, cause time's a wasting."

Well, it's kinda easy to wax poetic and metaphoric when you're The Only Living Boy in New York and the world's but A Hazy Shade of Winter.

Tom, get your plane right on time
I know that you've been eager to fly now
Hey let you honesty shine, shine, shine
Like it shines on me
The only living boy in New York
The only living boy in New York

This just begs the eternal question: who makes time with the timekeeper's daugher while the timekeeper's busy keeping time?

I appreciate the time you invested in linking together this lovely interlude just so I, a complete stranger, could spend some of my time enjoying it.

I like your weird musings best of all.

the faintest mist made from the color out of space and inside that, towards the core of the mist, a shovel of stars.

Color out of Space? Hey.... That's a veiled Lovecraft reference....

I follow American Digest, and I think that your time in The Blue Ridge Mountains has done you good.

You're on my list of people I wanna meet.

Reading this was time well spent...which is no time at all.

Being in North Carolina, I don't suppose Pellom has any New York Minutes.

I LOVE BLACK MTN! We've been there many times - even stopped in at Pellom's (I love clock shops - thankfully there's one in the little town where I live). I hope you ate at the Red Rocker Inn.

Riffing on "Gray": You didn't give a link to H.P.

Bad idea--Cthulhu's gonna getcha.
