Old Trunks is not a fan of DST. EVER!!!

When I was a kid, I was told that is had to do with the farmer's having more daylight to work. I have yet to know a farmer that goes by his/her watch. They go by what needs to be done and when with the weather being a deciding factor. So there are holes in that theory, don't you think?

Then, when the kids were in grade school, and there was an energy crisis, they sprang forth in February. Obviously it was dark when they went to school in their dark coats walking to school in an area with no sidewalks. Well, we had a great neighborhood and until it was daylight, we got them all to school one way or another. If anyone was going to be safe it was our children.

Old Trunks best booboo about DSL happened when, in April a life time ago, we set the clocks back instead of forward and wondered why no one was a church and the sun was so high.

Now, my sweet Thomas starts the clock reset the day before. That means that when it turned 5P on the reset clock, it was time for me to make dinner. When it was 9P on the clock, which was only 8P, we went to bed.

For those of you who don't know, I play a game on line which includes harvesting crops. I did not figure for the crops to be off an hour to harvest. But then, farmer's aren't supposed to go by the clock are they? Only on the net!

Happy DST, grumble, grumble.
