Take a position?

That position we are going to assume being: Fall Back. We'll reset the clocks to an hour earlier before we hit the hay tonight. One year J and I were so efficient that we, independently of one another, reset all the wall clocks so that they were each set two hours early .

Now we divide up the duty. Our watches are our own responsibility but J takes care of the wall clocks. I do the clock in the stove, microwave, and coffeemaker. I do my alarm clock and his while I am thinking about it. Big Ed does his own whatevers.

The computer, bless its heart, is independent enough to do it for itself and so are most televisions. 'Cept for the one in the dining room and I don't know why it is so backward about it.

The VCRs? They can fend for themselves. Who cares?

Blink, blink, blink, blink . . .

I do almost all of the resetting here. Our VCR resets itself, but is so old that it doesn't know the new law. It's been an hour behind for a week now, but will be fine again in the morning.

M. sets everything that requires a push button effect to have the correct time. He has taken care of this matter as long as we have been married. LOL both of you set the clocks back one hour? Boy, I bet that was a surprise.

M can come do ours, too, if he wants to ;>)

Yes, it was a surprise and we talk to each other about it, before we do clock setting, now.

The VCR that blinks all the time is so sensitive to power levels that the slightest hitch starts it blinking again after it is set. I gave up.

I ought to go behind and reset the stove, the microwave, and the coffeemaker. Then watch the blame begin. Muhahah!

Considering the bloody murder these suggestions . . . actually, I think I'll do it to Big Ed's alarm clock.

The cat made me do it. It is all her fault.

RANGER said...

No wonder I'm so tired: up two hours early.
