Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Signs of Spring in the Dark

When I stepped out the front door this morning at 7 a.m. into Daylight Savings Time darkness saw the first signs of spring in the viburnum by the front steps.

Willie hates Daylight Savings time. He could barely see his way to the newspaper box at 7 a.m. And worse, couldn't see well enough to make sure that unauthorized dogs had not been in his yard overnight:
What about you? Is Daylight Savings Time to your liking or not?

this one is tough for me to adjust to - and worse for the animals. they just don't get it.

Love the first photo! Well, we aren't affected by Daylight Savings Time in Arizona, except that it makes people we love not two hours later than us when we call, but now THREE. That's the only adjustment we have to make.

Day two of DLST and I am dragging! Same thing happens in the fall too! Takes me about two weeks to adjust! I do however love the extra daylight...so I guess it's a trade off!

I always hate the first couple of weeks because it is so dark in the mornings, but I like that it stays lighter longer in the evenings. It's always an adjustment....even for Willie. lol
