When I worked night shift, I made sure I worked the weekend of time change in spring and didn't work the weekend of time change in fall. Who wants to work 9 hours and get paid for 8?

I never figured this out. Grew up on a farm. Old Bossie gave milk when she wanted, and not a minute before. And no she wouldn't be shoo'd into the barn until she was ready. Come hell or high water, whatever that meant, never dawdle or be a minute late for her either. Never mind a clock or how light it was outside.

The high school boys practiced football and the band practiced marching during daylight during school hours. We all went home at the same time.

If there was planting or harvesting, you turned the tractor lights on or I expect before that, you followed the winnows or furrows with the tractor wheel. Luckily I grew up when portable radios were invented and there was a groove to it.

I suppose I'll change my clocks when I get a round tuit.

I lose that hour every spring and I never get it back in the fall. Guess it doesn't matter since I'll have plenty of time for sleeping once I'm dead.

Thinking about buckytom this morning, time changes were always a big deal in his line of work!

Happy that for the next six months the clock in my car will show the right time, you would think with all this OnStar nonsense they would somehow "push" the new time out to the clock every six months.

Oh, the truck clock...
It always takes me a week (I don't drive often) to figure out where the time function is. Yes, you would think with GPS and the other electronic feaatures they could send it a signal or something.

Don't forget the new batteries for the smoke detectors, every cook with a dirty oven loves those smoke detectors!

I have one clock that always stays the same.....like the old saying goes: Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
