country n news-time fades away


for as long as i remember
somewhere back 20+ years
i have worn this old black watch
you know the kind that you can dive under water
and it will keep on ticking

it also has a timer on it
changes the days and years and times without messing with it
well sometimes i had to adjust the time
since they seem to always mess up with daylight savings times

this old black watch has been used in my practice
heck many of you and your kids have had their pulse
respiratiory rates measured using this old black watch

my wife she she doesnt ever wear a watch
even if she did it wouldnt matter much

not me
i like to get to places on time
i even have my watch set so its 5 minutes fast
just dont tell my wife she that
i even have the clocks in the house set like that also

those new fangled cell phones have messed all of that up
since they keep accurate time
they even will change when the time change happens
like may i remind you that happens this weekend

now i have a smartphone that i use a lot
but i never rarely look at the time on it
i do use it a lot as a timer and stopwatch though
its just easier than using my old black watch

so last saturday as i was doing all the lot clearing with all those
kids at the habitat for humanity lot
as i was finishing
i said i wonder what time it is
pulled up my sleeve
all i could see on my left wrist was a tan free circle
around the wrist

that old black watch
she be gone
i searched everywhere for it
to no avail

i decided well i got this here smartphone
ill just use it
so thats what i have been doing now for the last week

sorry its not the same
i could just flick my wrist to see the time
heck i even had some timers that went off
like 5pm
that meant it was wine time

so this week has been a change for me
i must say it seems somewhat more laid back
i work outside with no idea of what time it is
i realize i guess it doesnt really matter
does it

i guess this is why my wife she doesnt use a watch
its more relaxing this way
makes life less stressful

heck it works for the chickens
they seem to know
when to come down in the morning
when to go back up in the coop at night
all without a watch
they do no resetting for daylight savings time
theyre clueless

i have to decide soon if i will get a new old black watch
to cover up my pale white circle on my arm
just let that spot tan in
live a simpler slower paced life

i might live longer
