    Here's my salute to the time change!

    I do not like it when they say;
    “You have to change your clock today.”
    I just got used to where we’re at,
    But don’t you know, we can’t have that!

    The microwave, bedside alarm.
    Sleeping in would do no harm!
    The coffee pot, the VCR,
    I don’t know how to do the car!

    Oh, yeah, the watch, that little stem!
    I think I’ll give this one to “them”.
    “They” set this up, “they” must know how,
    If I can find “them” anyhow.

    The smoke alarm needs batteries,
    You get it down, I’m asking, please!
    I’ve tested it, I know that one,
    It goes off when my dinner’s done!

    And when to set the clock, I ask.
    What is the time to do this task?
    An hour early off to bed?
    I think I’ll just sleep in instead!

    Well done! I love this!

    It reminds me of my grandpa. He'd get SO upset at the time change, trying to figure out back or forward, all the different kind of clocks. One year, his Maine stubbornness kicked in, and he refused to play. Instead, from then on, he only set his watch, and he only set it ahead. From that point on, if you asked him the time, he'd say, "Your time, my time or THEIR time?"

    K - I'm with Grandpa!

    The dogs were really confused last night. They were watching for me at 4:30. DH said he couldn't convince them it wasn't 5:30. Then they couldn't figure out why we weren't done eating so they could eat! Poor underfed children!
