Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Did you forget?

I did. But my computer didn't.

For those of you who work on Sunday, live in the U.S. (but not in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, and Arizona), and who read this blog before work (yes, all of you):

You're early. It's time for Daylight Saving Time.

Me, I'm going to come in an extra half-hour early for work, but not the full hour early, which would make me look like a chump.

Nope, I remembered. I reset all the clocks before climbing into bed last night.

I feel bad for the Mayberry guys that had to work the 13 hour shift last night, though.

Ah, actually Daylight Savings Time is the summer clock.

We came off DST last night and are now back on Standard Time.

Hey, 'Dog-- if you're gonna start with splittin' hairs on me, then I'll have to point out that the term is "Daylight Saving Time" [no S.].

"...term is "Daylight Saving Time" [no S.]."

And you can tell there is no S because there was no apostrophe to announce it...

I bow to Merriam-Webster:

To wit: "

Main Entry:
daylight saving time
: time usually one hour ahead of standard time —called also daylight saving, daylight savings, daylight savings time, daylight time.

Dogs don't recognize DST, beginning or ending. They rousted me out an hour "early", so I didn't get to sleep in.

It has made me irrationally cranky. This is one thing I miss about living in Arizona.

Yeah, M-W will recognize all kinds of incorrect references, won't they?
