Hey there, raster!

You remembered two of the water clock passages I'd forgotten--the one
I'm vaguely thinking of is the one used to explain how the master of
the house's clock manages to stop "precisely" at the moment that the
master dies . . . mainly that with all the deathbed activity, none of
the slaves fills the water pan for the clock, then when the doctor
wants to jot down the time of death he looks at the clock, which
stopped at some arbitrary time, and the doctor uses that time as
being as good as any, and everybody else goes "whoo" (and the master's
dog begins to howl since they've forgotten to feed him as well as
water the clock <g>).

Can't remember where this one comes from.
