Okay, 16 months later. My last note on 7/30/16 was about my wife's clock shutting down. Ultimately the addition of the RTC to her clock fixed the problem.

I have since then, also made the clock SD images "READ-ONLY" using Adafruit's "Read-only Pi" article as a basis. I did have to find an alternative to starting the clock script using CRONTAB though since CRONTAB is uninstalled by the Read-Only setup and doesn't work if its removal is bypassed by commenting it out in the setup.

Has been working flawlessly for many months now and I have the added peace of mind in knowing that a power failure shouldn't render the SD card unreadable.
