Why am I so Exhausted - I Want My Hour Back

Spring is here and along with it comes Daylight Savings Time and the new Health Care Bill. Someone asked me today what I thought about the Health Care Bill, I said, “I’ll let you know in 2016 when most of it is working or not working. And as far as Daylight Savings Time is concerned—I want my hour back! How did we save daylight when we took away an hour? I’m not sure either. Didn’t you love it in the old westerns when the hero crawled up on his hoss and said, “Come on we’re burnin’ daylight?” Sounded good every time!

Spring is here, finally. Four months since it reached fifty degrees—and it was 52 today—yippee!
Weather man says high of 24 and snow Friday. I just can’t seem to get it right.

Grandkids--Gotta Love Um

Grandma takes our grandson 'Alex' to swimming lessons every Tuesday and Thursday and sometimes they let me tag along. Yesterday the instructor had the six kids playing a game. They were in the shallow-shallow end and when he called out SHARK!!!, all the kids would kick the water like mad. They did this two or three times and then it was question time. (You know the teacher thing – check for understanding) He said Alex—“what do we do when I yell SHARK?” Alex answered, “Swim for the boat.” From the look on his face I knew that the instructor had not spent much time around five year olds.

Winter Olympics

The Winter Olympics are over--four more years before I, once again, become an expert in pairs skating, short track and down hill. Guess I will watch a little Basketball.
