Late night duty

Dang! It’s that time again when I have to get up at 2:00 o’clock in the morning and re-set all the clocks to Daylight Saving Time. A couple of electronic clocks that are tuned to the master in Colorado don’t need any fussing with, but my wristwatch and the clock in the kitchen require manual re-setting. So does the clock on my portable radio. It seems to me that it’s an awful requirement to get people out of bed for this really dumb ritual. And oh yeah—there's the clock in the car and the one in the pickup. Can’t forget them. I hope it isn’t raining at 2:00 AM.

I wish there was a better way.

UPDATE: I just thought of something. I can’t remember if I’m supposed to get up at the old (non-Daylight Saving Time) or the new (Daylight Saving Time) to re-set the clocks. I’ll have to look that up.

I know how you can avoid all that clock watching and changing. Come and live in Queensland. It's the only State in Australia that does not have Daylight Savings time. Problem solved!

JackassDave—I didn't know there were clocks at the high ranch. That's pretty high tech. Anyway, they're ALWAYS on Daylight Saving Time since that's the only time we're up there.

Susan, I could just move to Arizona or maybe Hawaii instead. That way I won't have to learn a whole new language. G'day!
