they didnt spring forward neither did i


not everyone sprang forward early sunday morning
the states of arizona and hawaii they kept their times the same
all those folks living there dont feel tired or drained or sleep deprived this morning

their kids teachers arent dreading this week at school
other places like puerto rico virgin islands and guam dont do daylight not savings time
add mexico to the list
they all leave their time at standard time
now the migrants crossing over the border lose an hour of sleep

im no advocate of daylight not saving time
i prefer the old like it use to be standard time

i read that if they kept daylight not savings time all year round that in places like chicago the sun wouldnt come out in the winter until 9am

there is a propsed law to keep things standard time all year round
you know how well congress gets things done 
they dont

right now the time change doesnt really affect me much
i get up early so whether its 300 or 400 doesnt matter to me
the sun is coming up early enough so that at the new 800 in the morning when i go to the garden the sun is hitting our condo good and is over most of the garden and mountains in the distance

i did notice i got a little sleepy at the end of the oscars last night and the sun was still up 
i persisted and made it through the ocars unitl the sun set so i didnt fall asleep until it was dark

im like our chickens in the garden 
the daylight not savings time doesnt affect them any

i would hate for them to make daylight not savings time here all year round 
in the winter i would be going to the garden when its dark
something i dont like to do
i like to hit the garden after the sun has bursted over the trees and are shining on the distant mountains
it helps my inner soul when that happens

i am with arizona hawaii and mexico
lets leave the time alone
standard time all year is my choice
