Last updated 03-26-10

Paul Casey (the sysop of the now-defunct Paul's Waka Waka BBS in Seattle WA. USA) was my "bestest" friend on the entire planet. He passed away on 06-16-06 (16 Jun. 2006 if you prefer); I made a memorial website in his honour on 08-19-06 (19 Aug. 2006); now I'm adding web pages about things either he gave me or Waka Waka merchandise that I purchased from his CafePress store to my website.

I've had this for quite a few years now, that's why it does not look brand spanken new in the above photograph!!!

This product does not emit light of its own, so the standard review format will not be used and the product will not be assigned a rating.

This is the Waka Waka wall now-deceased best friend Paul Casey had (still has, actually!) a CafePress store, and this was one of the many items that were being offered for sale.

It is a fairly standard analogue (uses hands, not numbers to display the time) wall clock. It uses a single AA cell for power, and can be hung from the wall with nothing more than a thumbtack or a map pin, thanks to its keyhole slot and light weight.

* I *think* this is how much I paid for it; though I cannot be absolutely, positively, 100% certain here.
This product was not found in Paul's CafePress store on 03-25-10 when I checked.

To use this clock, install an AA cell (see directly below), and THEN you can go check the time.

Setting this clock is quite easy...on the back of the clock, you'll see a smallish ribbed wheel. Turn it clockwise (as though tightening it) while observing the face of the clock. When the correct time is shown, stop turning the little ribbed wheel.

A keyhole slot on the back allows you to hang this clock quite readily...a thumbtack or a map pin (or "pushpin" as some people call them) is more than sufficient because this clock is not at all heavy.

A somewhat spooky thing happened last year...
When I moved from Sacramento CA. to Federal Way WA. on 01-07-09, I noted that this clock had stopped functioning...however, on June 16 2009 (exactly the three year anniversary of Paul's passing), it mysteriously started working again - and it's been functioning properly since then!!!

To change the AA cell when necessary, place the clock face-down on a soft surface like a bed, uphostered chair, couch, etc. and look on the back for an AA cell in an open compartment. Remove it, and dispose of or recycle it as you see fit.

Insert a new AA cell into the compartment, orienting it according to the polarity legend embossed into the bottom of the compartment. Press it firmly in place, and set the clock to the correct time if necessary.

Hang the clock back where you originally removed it from, and be done with it.

Nothing to see here folks except for a silly clock ticking.

Unit was purchased on Paul Casey's CafePress store sometime in 2003.

It is not known where the product was manufactured.
A product's country of origin really does matter to some people, which is why I wanted to publish it on this web page.
