Public Service Announcement

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT….Don’t forget to set your clocks back tonight! Around here, my main job is restraining Marian, who normally starts resetting our clocks shortly after breakfast on Der Tag.

Sigh. I hate it when Daylight Saving Time ends. As far as I’m concerned, we ought to change our clocks every couple of months or so in order to keep sunset at a steady 8 pm. Who cares if it doesn’t get light until 10 in the morning?
