I like the auto set ones the best :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth: . Still have to do the kitchen wall clock, the stove and the microwave, have to do them all quick, it drives me nuts if they show different times from each other as they are all right close by.

I always set mine before I go to bed.That way,it doesn't seem like such a "jump".

I have one clock that has time zones on it. I just change the zone, it's a lot easier.

I remembered the change this morning when I looked at the clock and realized I had to get up! I usually remember to change the clocks the night before but didn't do it this year. Personally I'd rather they waited until April1. We were just getting some light in the mornings when I'm on my way to work and now it's going to be dark again for a while.

I remember one year,I wasn't thinking what I was doing (too early in morning),and I turned the clock back instead of forward.That put me two hours off the proper time for half a day or so. :(

I remember one year I was on my way to work in the morning thinking that I had plenty of time to get there when my cell phone rang...I looked at the caller ID and it was my Boss. I answered and he said "Where are you?" I said on my way to work, Why? After a long pause, he replies "Did you forget to do something last night?" That's when I remembered! Fortunately he thought it was funny and I didn't get in trouble.

No, stayed out late last night playing pool at the American Legion hall since the wife is working the late shift. Heck of a surprise when I came back and looked at the computer. Sure glad I am retired and time isn't a big factor any more. Not to say that being on time for anything isn't important. I still believe in "I'd rather be two hours early than two minutes late.".

My day off milking duty, so I slept in. Clock time was of no matter! I still have to reset all mine. If I had my way, time would stay where it is today. I love having more daylight in the evenings. I milk cows in the mornings, so it doesn't matter if it's daylight or dark, except for I hate being in a milk parlor when it's daylight & nice weather outside.

Mom called me a minute or two before 8 this morning asking if I wanted her to pick me up for church. We go to a cowboy church just down the road about two miles from where I live so she usually picks me up on her way by. I wasn't paying attention to the time and I told her I was going to sit this one out. There is rain moving in and my joints hurt too bad to sit in a hard pew with no pad for any length of time. A couple minutes after we hung up the phone I looked at the clock and it was 8:01. Church starts at 8 and mom has a twenty minute drive from her house! I called her back and told her she wasn't going either because church had already started. She says "no, it don't start until 8 and its just now 7".
:itsok: She has been a pretty good mom, I think I'll pick her out a nice nursing home. :smilewink:

Since I forgot the correct way my Dad showed me to set my grandfather clock with the hands (if you do it wrong it screws up the entire time and chime continuum for the whole Universe) I just stop and restart it.  It's amazing how we miss the quarterly Westminster chiming and the big sound show on the hour.

 

"Somebody" screwed up my alarm radio, now it is off an hour, shows PM when it's AM and it's supposed to reset automatically.  I'm guessing feline intervention!
