I'm freaked out My OH's grandad had to go into a home a while back so OH's dad now has most of his possessions, including a broken grandfather clock which hasn't chimed for years... it's now been in the in-laws' living room for a couple of years. Anyway, unfortunately Tom (the grandad) passed away on April 1st last year. It was his birthday on January 6th (Sunday) and the clock just started randomly chiming the hour every hour - and then woke my mother-in-law up at midnight going BONG BONG BONG BONG BONG etc like it was stuck, until it wound itself down. The next day it wouldn't work again. Is that weird or what?!
