Thinking of Uke today and how he would complain every time that the time changed. †Personally, I'd be content if they would make it standard time year round and NOT daylight time year round like that f'ing puke Rubio wants to do.†

I'd be fine with Standard Time all the time....DST all the time doesn't make any sense. Unless it's to keep golf courses open later, but I don't golf.

Rule G: No Golf

I've been living on DST since Thursday. It's easier for me to go ahead in the spring than it is in the fall. I stay phukked up for weeks.

I'm relieved as I get that "extra hour of sleep" going forward. I've set as a time I can do 365 days a year is 09:30hrs PST
to setout eats for birds and critters. That now become "10:30hrs". OK with me. For nearly 20yrs working for BN on night
shift I was the employee that got to change the clock in the depot or office. Such responsibilty.

Tu sumbuddy workin' a truly badass circadian rhythm disrupted "schedule",

all this here fuss and moaning and groaning over a 1 hour shift ?

It's like...hoof hawk kink hairs ???

Other than if yer tryin' ta get an early sleep start, it stays bright light out

so much later. I dunno ? Is it the wackadoodle rest cycles or

locomotive vibration† induced brain damage ?

I hated it when I lived in a state that ran on one time and the RR ran on another, always had to pay strict attention. I remember the BOT who they wanted to write up because he had his RR timepiece set on Buckeye time and he essentially told them that he was smart enough to keep track of what time RR time was. They didn't write him up but told him he should change his watch. I can't remember but I don't think he ever did.

He was one of my favorites, about my age, he'd been on MofW before he switched over and was pretty rough and gruff, a lot of younger HAWGS told me after he was gone that they were scared to death of him. Sadly, he retired and didn't even make it five years before he was gone.

True enough, as a railroad man the time change gets barely noticed by me...but I the general scheme of things...I think we don't need it.
