-さ? ご prefix?
I actually have a couple of questions... (numbering the lines for reference)
7 いまはもう動かない その時計
Line 1 - what is 「のっぽ」? I've tried my j-lookup and I can't figure it out. With most verbs/adjectives/whatever, I can manage to un-conjugate or at least search with half a word and a wildcard. But this one's eluding me.
line 4 - 「自慢」 is pride. What is the prefix 「ご」 for?
line 4 again - 「時計さ」 What's the purpose of さ tacked to the end of the noun? (Seen again in line 6)

ご is the honorific prefix (much like お). It is attached to certain words to make them more polite.
さ is a sentence ending that adds a softer, casual ending to the sentence.
Hope that helps.
