What Time?

PhotobucketPhotobucket

When told the reason for daylight
savings time the Old Indian said,
"Only the Government would believe
that you could cut a foot off the
top of a blanket, sew it to the
bottom, and have a longer blanket."

Pickles doesn't get it either.
"Say what? You save daylight how?
This is going to mess with dinner
time isn't it?"

  3. Hilarious! It would seem the government is completely absurd....but we already knew that. And Pickles...looks just like my Tootsie in her younger days, before the gray eyelashes, belly, and underarms. "It's hell gettin' old" she tells me, and I agree.

  7. Sometimes common sense is just genius, isn't it.

    Also: PICKLES IS ADORABLE!

  8. I agree, the different time for sun-up and sun-set really messes with the critters :o)

  9. I had an English roommate in college who thought it was a dumb idea and refused to reset his watch. He just recalculated everthing for half a year. He didn't care.

  10. That was q great saying... and Pickles looks nonplussed by the entire enterprise!

  11. Anything that messes with dinner time has got to be ridiculous!

  12. Arizona does not participate in the "Day light savings" time clock.

    So when the people who live in Bullhead City, Arizona, cross the Colorado River to go the work at the Laughlin, Nevada casinos, they have to have go by two different clocks!

  14. Very true...I am much more of a fan of falling back an hour for Daylight Savings. Who doesn't love an extra hour of sleep?

  15. seriously. living for six years without daylight savings (while on maui) was AMAZING. no one has ever been able to explain it to me in a way that will ever convince me it's worth keeping around.

  17. I read numerous posts (and Facebook comments) dedicated to the topic of the time change. This was the best!
    Pickles looks like such a thoughtful dog...pretty too. :)

  18. Ugh...it was soooo hard getting up yesterday morning, but it was my work day:(

  19. Dogs are notoriously anti-daylight savings! And I'm only a fan of the setting clocks back an hour part. I can feel my internal clock fighting this already. Ugh.

  20. oh my goodness pickles is so cute. he looks just like a little sleepy kid you've just woken up to get him to school. "pleeeaase, can't i sleep a little bit longer?"

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think we should just throw away all our clocks and just live with Indian time again, whenever the time we get there...

    ReplyDelete
  22. It is so true! Government, always buttin in!

    PICKLES is the CUTEST!

    ReplyDelete
  23. My thoughts exactly. It's still winter, for gosh sake. I am still recovering from last October when I managed an extra hour of sleep and I don't want to give it back!! Give a (((HUG))to Pickles, for me~*

  24. Love that quote! Every year, DST makes me wonder where common sense has gone.

    ReplyDelete
  25. i don't think my beagle is ever going to recover. he is EXHAUSTED.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Haha.

    I agree.

    I do not like time changes.

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOL..I'm with Pickles on this one...
    Hugs, Sheri

  28. I don't like the time change. It is difficult to get up in the dark in the morning.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think traditionally it was so there was more daylight for farming in the afternoon...or something like that...either way, it's pointless now. But then, governments are really good at doing pointless stuff quite often, aren't they...

    I don't dare fight you for Pickles, although the cuteness factor is hard to ignore! I want a dog!! :)

  30. I loved the Old Indian quote.
    I for one would prefer to go back to how it once was before the time changes.
    Pickles is such a patient and contented looking dog.
    One of the best!
    Hugs

  31. We're up for the clock change next week, Indigo. And boy, will it mess up schedules for man and beast alike.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Agreed! My son recently asked me to explain daylight savings and I couldn't because it just sounded crazy. He will have to research that on his own.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I agree with the Indian *and* with Pickles!

Thank you for giving my silence a voice, my muse your words, and taking the time to discover my prose.
