        A very close friend recently made this for me. It is the top of a C02 fire extinguisher and the shoulder patches are from the 2 agencies I worked for as a professional (as opposed to being voluntold to serve on a couple of fire district boards).

            Haha mine is just akin to that: I tell my Amazon Echo to make an announcement that dinner is ready.

          Hmmm. I usually just loudly say let's eat. The last several years I've shortened that up to 'seat!

            Some years ago when we lived near Seattle the traveling Titanic exhibit came to town. My bride had to buy one of these "replica" bells...........it does have a nice tone.

            I like the Texas bell and I am not even from Texas. @fracmeister I do want to say that when I hit the link to the bell my antivirus software instantly popped up indicating it had blocked a virus trying to get into my machine. Just a warning to everyone. Can't say it was associated with that particular site, but it popped up the instant I hit enter. Be careful. All may want to run their anti virus if its not running in real time and be sure you are OK.

              I think he means the link that RonB posted to my question ( https://stxop.com/Texas_Dinner_Bell ), not fracmeister 's picture. I get a trojan warning when I click the link but my computer blocks that part of the site and I can still view the rest of the site. I'm going to buy the large Texas dinner bell.

              58limited - that's odd I just tried my link again and I got the warning too. I didn't get it when I originally posted it.

            As I mainly cook for myself. My wife does not like food cooked on charcoal. Forget smoke. So, gasser and I have to assure her no smoke.

            That being said, my dinner bell is me thinking "self your food is ready".

            Here one is a railroad bell from a steam engine, the other an antique hand school bell.

              My "dinner bell" is usually me hollering "SoooooweeeE, pig, pig, pig! Eeeee oooooo" something like my grandpa taught me when I was a little 'un. He called his pigs in from the pasture with this cry; I call the hubs and the dogs. We have 20 acres, and I can make this call carry to the far corners if I put my mind to it.
