Spring Forward

We did.  We still hate actively dislike it.  We've hated it every year since we began this blogging thang.


Yeah, an hour less of GOP primary BS is a GOOD thing and I also like the extended verandah time.  But that's it.  It's not as bad as it used to be, though... I REALLY hated this Spring-Forward thang when I was gainfully employed.


The time change is kicking my ass in a minor sorta way, in that I'm out of sorts and will remain this way for the better part of a week.  Example:  there are still two cups o' morning coffee to finish.  That said, a week's worth o' body clock adjustment will leave me pleased with the "extra" Happy Hour time.  

OTOH... I'm oh-so-glad I don't have to drag my old ass out o' bed and be somewhere tomorrow morning.  The Spring-forward bullshit REALLY kicked my ass during my working years, mainly because I was always an early-guy, always in at 0600 or so.  I saved the above photo as documentary proof, even though it's 13 years old.  (Rochester, NY... c. 1998)

Spring Forward


I woke up at 1230 hrs.  I poured my first cup at 1245 hrs.  I missed all but the final 11 minutes (and the OT) of the Caps - 'Hawks game.  The day is NOT beginning well.
You get the ideer, right?


  1. Is there really a useful purpose for DST?
    All it means for me is I will stumble around in the dark again for a few more weeks until sunrise is back in the early.
    I will say it gives me something to post about for tomorrow... if I remember ;-)

    1. In response to yer first: Well, yeah. More verandah time!

  2. DST does suck big time. But thankfully, in retirement you can kinda ease into it. Am I right? Joyce and I just sleep in a little later for a few days or weeks until the pain passes.

    1. You are RIGHT! I slept in until 1030 this morning... and this after being pretty early for the last week or so.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
