The task of setting clocks forward
By Don Kruse, Editor
How many hours, ladders and step stools does it take you to turn your clocks forward in the spring or back in the fall?
This past Saturday night, it was late and I was tired, so I didn’t make the rounds through my house to set the clocks forward for Daylight Saving Time. I thought it could wait til morning because it is such an arduous task.
One of my clocks is hanging above an open stairs, and that requires an extension ladder that I call “double jointed,” if you know what I mean. That’s those ladders they make that bend in all directions. It’s the worst place in our house when it comes to painting, and not much better when it comes to setting the clock forward or back.
In lining up the hole on the back of the clock with the nail. I usually pull out the nail that it hangs on and it falls to the bottom of the stairs two or three times. Think that gets a little aggravating after awhile?
