This news might catch you off guard. Daylight Savings Time happens this weekend. We spring forward as clocks push ahead one hour at 2:00 am Sunday morning. Most devices automatically change the time now but some will need to be manually adjusted.  I personally fall under the “manually adjusted” banner.  I prefer no change at all, but we gotta do what we gotta do. I’ll get over it, and I’m sure looking forward to more daylight for goofing around outside!  (If we’d only get more than a day or two without rain!  More forecast this weekend)  Like the dog and cat, I operate mostly on an internal clock, and will keep much the same schedule regardless of the official numerical readout of our passage through space.  Or whatever.  What is the current time frame on reality?  And what’s real anyway?  And if Fox told you it was an hour and nine minutes earlier than it really was, …oh sorry, I got off-message.

I hope you don’t have trouble with the change.  It does mess with the body for some folks.  Experts say the loss of one hour causes a higher risk of heart attack and stroke.  That hour difference also can hurt people who already have trouble sleeping and for 5 to 7 days after the time change, it could affect people’s sleep patterns.   My sympathy if you suffer.  I’m sure I’ll be able to find my way to dreamland fairly easily, where long, warm sunny days will already be upon us, filled with kayaking and camping and golfing and fishing and swimming and biking and hiking and suckin’ in all Sol’s glorious rays shine upon!
