Sor for a year, back in 2014, we used this if one or more of us were sleeping and we had to tend to my father. Then it went into a closet upstairs when he died on Labor day. The other day, I came across it and now have it downstairs so my mother can ring it if needed.
I never once noticed the 1983 on the ornament or just plain regular bell. But there you go. Aint that a kick in the head?
