Resetting Mom's clock

This is not one of my favorite tasks to do for Mom but it must be done and I am the one to help out here.  So this is how I go about it all.

First I remove both batteries; one is for the chimes and the other is for the time.  Then Mom gets to work to set the time. She is steady and sure and after she has done her part then I take over.

We put in the two new batteries and then I start to program her chimes.  I need to be slow and sure, as well.

I gingerly feel for the button that is lowest on the panel that is at the back of the clock.  Well, it is not exactly a panel.  It is a sort of a groove built into the back of the clock.  Then I start to count with each press of the button until I obtain the number of hours that I desire.  That is, each press of the button represents an hour.

When I think that I have matched the number of hours to the number of presses of the button that I have made, I gently close the back of the clock and then both Mom and I start to pray.

Fortunately, the clock is able to program for itself the number of chimes that denote the quarter, half, and three quarters of an hour.  It took me a while to figure out how this clock works but now I think that Mom and I have found a way to deal with it all.
