Do I really need to be reading the newspaper out on my patio at 10pm by the light of the sun???

It feels unnatural.

The Pad and Bobo's are both closed on Sundays...otherwise that could be some Bday fun!

Sure did enjoy showin' them young whippersnappers the old man hasn't lost his shootin' skills. Gives 'em something to try for though. The son-in-law is gettin' close . . . very close.

Did you shoot him instead? When killing baby seals, it is more humane to use the bullet rather than the axe.

Judging from how he looks, It hasn't affected Justin's drinking time any. He looks like a pretty "content" curator.

Greatest idea ever! You can still have coffee at first light & play longer in the evening. DST all year long, please. I don't care if it's darker longer in the morning. I'll be up before most of y'all anyway.

Neither. It is what it is. Although, if we didn't have the time change twice a year, I'd have no way of knowing when to change the batteries in my smoke alarm. And to do whatever else it is that I'm supposed to do whenever we change the clocks.

Loathe and despise. We no longer need to hurry home to tend our vegetable gardens to help defeat the Kaiser.

Ed Norton lost time in "Primal Fear". It made him kill people.

Almost caught up on the Dillon 550. Got the range bag loaded up,(feels like it's prepared for a major uprising) and headed for an afternoon at the indoor range. Happy Shooting everyone!

Hell, I'm a morning person anyway! Get up, get things done, then coast all afternoon! Or from 11 AM as the case may be . . . .

Since I don't have a regular sleep schedule, I barely notice the changes. I often go days without going outside or even looking out a window. When I was younger, I had stronger feelings on the subject. I think I'll go to be now.

It is stupid and has outlived it's usefulness. Maybe it wasn't a bad idea back in world war one..but not today. Get your lazy butts up out of bed. Coffee at first light.

It's a silly idea. When the sun is overhead that's noon. If you want more daylight just wake up earlier.

Depends on whether I get to sleep more or less.Hate it in the Spring, love it in the Fall.

Daylight Saving Time = Global Warming

All those extra hours of daylight you see . . . .

I blame . . .

I like saving time. With Kodak cameras :) Make this moment a Kodak one.
