Shopping Time! Day 18, talking alarm clock

I love British humor, and I really love Stephen Fry as Jeeves the butler. This alarm clock reproduces the subtle wit employed by P. G. Wodehouse’s most famous character–the valet Reginald Jeeves politely affirms the beginning of the day. 126 different wake-up messages in the reserved voice of Stephen Fry. When the alarm sounds, Jeeves speaks softly as he assuages your displeasure that the morning has indeed come: “Excuse me sir, I’m so sorry to disturb you, but it appears to be morning… Very inconvenient, I agree… I believe it is the rotation of the Earth that is to blame” or greets you with “Good morning, sir… I feel sure you have slept soundly, feel thoroughly refreshed, and await the day with the anticipation of an energetic gazelle.” You can get a “Madam” version as well.  Now I will admit that this probably isn’t the best solution for couples who need to get up at different times because it is not as sophisticated as other modern alarms, but the fun factor of this is off the scale. Definitely on my list for one of my guest rooms! Find it on Amazon

Hello Friends

I have the coolest job in the world. I get to create gorgeous images of beautiful kids and families, so they can remember these precious days forever!

I live on Lake Keowee in SC, but I travel frequently back to the Pittsburgh/Washington PA area and do sessions in BOTH places!
