Day 10/31 #sol19

Daylight Savings Time in my memory: Meticulously set the clocks around the house the night before. Don’t forget the alarm clock, the oven clock, the microwave clock, the car clock, and (yikes, good luck!) the VCR clock.

Daylight Savings Time today: Oh, yeah, that’s right. That’s today. Would you look at that?! My phone remembered all by itself. Sweet. Guess I’ll go change the car clock at some point in the next week, too.

Do you think there are “kids” out there who have no idea of the rituals we used to go through to update time?

  1. Daylight Savings is so useless! We are not longer a solely agrarian society, stay in your lane, Ben Franklin! I never bother with the clock on the microwave because it will be the correct time eventually. Kids today probably don’t even get the excellent Princess Bride reference.

      1. Iโ€™m sorry! I was being snarky about a VCR- I hope that wasnโ€™t rude. Iโ€™m all in on the Fire Stick and Netflix- I still have a few VCR tapes but no where to play them.

        1. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ No worries!!! I love some good snark, and Iโ€™m totally with you. What was UP with that nonsense?! I think that I may still have one tape still lying around… Hunt For Red October. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ


          1. Thatโ€™s a classic! Love Connery and Baldwin in that film. Jack Ryan has been through so many versions- Affleck, Krasinki, Ford… almost as many different people as Batman!

  2. This rings so true! I do remember those days and the previous comment about a VCR is so funny. Ours would generally be flashing because programming it took coding to a new level.

    Keep writing!

  3. Iโ€™m looking forward to the day I can command Siri or Alexa to change the car clock. Iโ€™ll get to it in a month or two, probably in time for the fall back in time!

  4. This post is so true! I can remember the family event of changing each clock, and synchronizing the upstairs and downstairs clocks. Everyone had a responsibility. And of course, the VCR! That part hit home!

    1. Yes! The doled out pieces of responsibility throughout the house – that was totally a part of the Time Change Ritual! Iโ€™d forgotten about that. Thanks for the memories! โค๏ธ
