You'd think I would've learned from the tea kettle incident. Damn it.

Oh I was taught all kinds of lessons as a child that I ignored while doing stupid crap. Just glad those days weren't terminal for me. What lessons you don't heed from home, life will thump you on. Just glad I got away with a few bumps and bruises and a few bologna sandwiches that were the menu.

Oh, trust me, I did my fair share of stupid stuff growing up. Got myself into some scary situations... But looking back I can say, I have friends who are in much worse shape than I am and it's because they weren't taught the same basic life lessons I was taught growing up...

I want to thank RiverRat68 for the very nice thank you card and the enclosed gift. He felt compelled to thank me for getting his dog out of the shelter where it was mistakenly brought to while RiverRat was in Rehab. I didn't do much. And I certainly don't deserve any sort of gift. The card was nice enough. Handmade by his friend's wife and very pretty.

Thank you, RiverRat. But I didn't deserve the gift. I pay it forward for all the help I've gotten from friends over the years. And I know you'd do the same. Luv ya!!

Why do I keep thinking it's Friday? Maybe I'm just eager to start my new job and start earning some decent $$.

Maybe I'm just excited to move the clocks forward an hour so I can enjoy the extra hour of sunlight in the evening. Nothing lifts my spirits like Spring time.

I never understood that concept. An old Indian supposedly said, when DST was explained to him, "only the white man would cut an inch from the bottom of a blanket, and sew it to the top, and call it longer."

To me, a day is a day is a day, regardless of what my clock says. I've always viewed time as an arbitrary measurement of the elapsed spaces between events, and pretty useless until your own last event nears (death), when everyone wishes they had more "time".

The way I've always figured it, if a person wants to enjoy more daylight, they should simply get up earlier. Changing the numbers on a mechanical device doesn't do it.

Oh I've heard the old spiel, for the farmers, yada yada yada... Still never made sense to me. I never did see anything they couldn't do that suddenly became possible by changing the clock.

Aye! Pretty easy to see where forward is too... You might get fooled by a pretty face, but not your kid. She's more than a pretty face!

I think you want to move the clocks forward to get closer to starting to work again!

I found myself wishing it was Friday today too. Not that it matters much, I work seven days a week... (getting real tired of it too.)
