what does it save


just what does daylight savings time save anyway
the way i feel this morning when i got up makes me feel
that it didnt save me anything especially time

i know we did this at one time when we were in the energy
crisis in the 1970s
remember those long lines for gasoline
remember no one was traveling as much because sometimes
you had to search for a gas station when you did travel

i personally dont like the day light unsaving time change
i wish they would do like arizona and hawaii does and
the rest of the world does
they dont have it

the only problem is what is the correct time
now or the time it was last week

in the summer i like the non daylight savings time because im an
early bird and work outside a lot in the early morning
so if the sun comes up early then i can get work done before
it gets too hot
well i guess the sun doesnt really come up early
we are just being programmed to a time change not the sun

last summer when we were in nicaragua for a week
they are in the same time zone as we are but
the daylight would come on at about 530 am and my surfing
brotherinlaw would be up watching the waves to surf
i thought man this would be great to be home and to be able
to go outside at 530 in the summer to work in the yard

once when i was redoing my roof on my barn in the summer i
would set up a spot light on the roof and start working at
500 am
i dont have neighbors close by to bother so i am able to do that
without bothering them

then in nicaragua it got dark an hour earlier in the summer which
seemed to fit my bodys clock much better as
everyone seemed to go to bed earlier there

it was nice since i didnt have to embarrass myself and my wife she
by falling asleep in front of our hosts

so yes i propose that we undo do our daylight unsavings time so
that we dont have to deal with changing our clocks and being
confused for a few weeks until our bodies get adjusted to the
new time schedule

my old beat up black country n farm truck has been on its own time
now for several years since
i never change the clock on it
so right now its time is not correct or is it

yes lets undo it
it certainly didnt save any daylight for me yesterday
