A Time of Change or a Change of Time?

So, yesterday I get up. The clock said 7:30am, which is just stupid early on Sunday morning. Then I come in to my computer and... WHAT?!?!? 6:30am?!?!? UGH! I HAD ALREADY STARTED MY COFFEE! Can't go back to bed now...

Remember that song; "These are a few of my favorite things!"? WELL IT'S NOT! FALLING BACK AND SPRINGING FORWARD DEFINITELY DO NOT BELONG IN THE FAVORITE THING CATEGORY! They just don't sound safe. In fact, they sound like accidents waiting to happen for a sedentary and semi (or maybe really) clumsy galoot like me. I don't like it and I don't think I am alone! I think we should have one more "Spring Forward" and then put an end to this time changing foolishness before someone gets hurt! Yell GRRRRR. Yell

Falling BackI know the Iowa farmers I have interviewed (a statically significant number of 6) don't like it either because cows and pigs don't have watches, or maybe it was that they couldn't tell time. (Should have taken notes...) Even clocks don't seem to enjoy it! See the image to the right as an proof! That doesn't look like a happy clock. I am starting my write-in campaign against time change today! So please, join me in my chant (or rant)!!!

THE TIME IS NOW, TO STOP THE CHANGE OF TIME!

THE TIME IS NOW, TO STOP THE CHANGE OF TIME!

THE TIME IS NOW, TO STOP THE CHANGE OF TIME!

THE TIME IS NOW, TO STOP THE CHANGE OF TIME!

THE TIME IS NOW, TO STOP THE CHANGE OF TIME!

We have light switches and headlights and we know how to use them! Clocks don't like it, and most of all, COWS AND PIGS DON'T HAVE WATCHES OR CAN'T TELL TIME!

Another thing for my pet peeve list... Perhaps I whine a bit... Tongue out

I like to hold them and stroke them and call them George!

Anyway... I will be writing them, and adding more to the list, in the future.

grrr_copy 1. Talking/texting on the cellphone while driving. Some people just don't have sufficient brain power to multi-task like this! Props to Billings Montana for passing a law making this practice illegal! We need to spread that law around the state!

2. Bicyclists who ride the wrong direction on one way streets (how can you see the traffic lights?) and who just plain ignore traffic laws. Every time I see one blow through a red light or run a stop sign, my teeth get a little flatter.

More to come...
