Patricia Joyner is the creator of the clocketbook, a purse that features a 10-inch wall clock on the outside pouch so that people with bad vision can keep track of the time.
Joyner started losing her sight seven years ago and credits the clocketbook with keeping her life running in a timely manner.
Besides helping visually-impaired people, there are other benefits. Joyner says the big hands on the clock helped her great-grandchildren learn the time and can be a great conversation starter.
In her words, People yell at me across the street, Lady, what time is it?
But not everything is running like a clock for Joyner. Recently, when she was on a cruise, one of her fellow passengers became very angry because she wouldnt sell the clocketbook to her.
