Setting clocks back...

It's that time of year when we set our clocks back an hour. Don't forget to do this. We set our clocks back in the fall and ahead in the spring.

Personally, I don't see why we do this. I understand about daylight and nightlight, but why mess with the time? Why can't we leave well enough alone. There are certain states that don't observe daylight saving time. What is one to do? I just have to go with the flow.

Whaaaaaat? Are you sure? Oh brother.Arizona does not participate in Daylight Savings Time and frankly I think we should all stop. Now. Immediately. Such a waste of time. What would Einstein think?

Little Lamb said...

Yes, I'm sure. No, Arizona does not participate. I thinks we all should stop, too, immediately, if not sooner. Yes, it is a waste of time. I have no idea what Einstein would think. Too bad we can't ask him.

Hammer said...

It's supposed to save electricity.

Not sure if there is any hard evidence that it actually does.

Little Lamb said...

But yet they still charge an arm and a leg. Go figure.

foam said...

i'm planning on sitting in a corner all winter long and pouting about it....
what if we all went on a daylight savings time strike?

Little Lamb said...

I think that's exactly what we should do!

Oswegan said...

You could move to Indiana.

Little Lamb said...

Too cold.

carmen said...

saving time ?? what for ??

einstein would say we lose precious time ... a split second, when i set my watch on winter time and a full 5minute for setting my clock...

who's using my time ??

Krissie said...

We moved it a week ago. I'm still adjusting.

Little Lamb said...

Carmen, good question.

Krissie, we supposedly did this to save energy.

boneman said...

One of the modern moronitudes of our generation, eh.

Heck, if they wanted to really accomplish something, lets move the clock ahead by one winter every year. That way there's only good weather outside.

Ruela said...

unnecessary.
wasted time.

carmen said...

stolen, ruela...

is time still valuable , i wonder??
time is a bore...time sucks...time's countertime...time's succession...day in night out...

i am like time myself...

Ruela said...

in tic - tac neurotic of the hours my heart speeds up for the end...

Little Lamb said...

Bonemam, I like your thinking. Let's get on it!

Ruela, true.

Carmen, I wonder?

...............foam, I bet!

mutleythedog said...

Still it will give us an extra hour in bed *snuggle snuggle*

Little Lamb said...

Only during daylight saving time.

Scary Monster said...

What be these clock things people be setting?

STOMP.

Ruela said...

stop the clock!!!

Little Lamb said...

Scary, monsters know nothing of time, so it would be bard to explain. Monsters only scare.

Ruela, what would happen if time stopped?

/t. said...

set my
clock ahead
by twenty-three hours

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Hmmm, are you into the next week perchance?

/t. said...

i like to
stay a step
ahead of the flock

you likely know what i mean ;)

/t.

You are so right. It doesn’t make much of a difference. I mistakenly changed my time a week ago and noticed nothing. Of course, it may be that because I’m retired I wouldn’t notice anything.

Corn Dog said...

Hey Lamb.
You were right about the Daylight Savings Time or the lackthereof, but the dogs haven't adjusted yet. They wanted food an hour earlier. I didn't know what to tell them, so I told them, "no." That lasted all of 3 seconds. More time. Time and time again. Nothing but time on the brain.

Little Lamb said...

/t. Oh NO! STAY AWAY FROM DOLLY AND THE LAMBS!!!! I'll have to some how make them fireproof!

SSN, must be nice to be retired. No job responsibilities. But you answer to Alex.

Corn Dog, see? The pets don't know about Daylight saving time. They know nothing about the time change. All they know is when its time to eat, sleep, and play.

Ruela said...

good question.

Little Lamb said...

It is.

Ruela said...

is.

Little Lamb said...

maybe

Ruela said...

?

Little Lamb said...

!

Ruela said...

why?

Little Lamb said...

Because

Ruela said...

what?

Little Lamb said...

You heard me.

Ruela said...

I'm looking for a wife
This is my face>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Little Lamb said...

I would like to have the right man in my life. But he's got to believe in God the way I do.

Ruela said...

How?

Little Lamb said...

I've asked Jesus Christ into my heart. I read the King James Version of the Bible.

Ruela said...

I do not know this version of Bible.
you read everyday?

Little Lamb said...

Yes I do.

We can be friends.

Ruela said...

we?
me and you
or
you and the Bible?

Little Lamb said...

You and me.

Ruela said...

AH!

Little Lamb said...

Would you like that?

Ruela said...

YES
i love you little lamb

Little Lamb said...

Me too. I love you,too, Ruela.

Ruela said...

as friends ;)
because I don't read the King James Version of the Bible.

Little Lamb said...

You can, but you might not get it in Protugal.

I've been to Portugal and I liked it a lot.

Ruela said...

where?
what town?

Little Lamb said...

I don't remember, but I do remember it was something like 5 hours from the airport. This was a very long time ago. I was in high school then. This was many many years ago.

Ruela said...

cool.

Little Lamb said...

:-)

Ruela said...

go sleep and dream with you ;)

Little Lamb said...

That sounds very nice.

Ruela said...

yes because i can't setting clocks back everyday ;)

Little Lamb said...

I'm glad we don't have to.

I can't be setting clocks back everyday either. ;)

Ruela said...

unnecessary.
wasted time.

Little Lamb said...

What is unnecessary wasted time?

Ruela said...

Setting clocks back

Little Lamb said...

It can be.

/t. said...

what can be?

/t.

Ruela said...

yes what can be?

Little Lamb said...

Setting clocks back can be a waste of time.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Right - AZ doesn't turn the clocks back so the Mexicans have a tougher time finding the place in the dark.

mutleythedog said...

I have an idea - just set the clocks half an hour back - then never change them and you will always be half an hour before or after everyone else, which people will just put down to you being eccentric... what do you think?

Little Lamb said...

Phos, Sounds good. Did you know the Mexicans are crossing the border at legal crossings and getting in with no problem? It's like we want them here.

Poochie, I like your idea, let's give it a try.

puerileuwaite said...

I adhere to my own calendar and method of keeping time, which is all "resychronized" with the passing of each new comet. And I am "this close" to getting Arizona to adopt my methodology.

Little Lamb said...

Sounds good to me. Maybe we should all adopt the pug's view on time.
