FK – The old farmers around here had it right. They used to say “They changed the time ’cause them doctors wanted to play golf.”
The next county over is central time. The old folks would call it ‘fast time’ and ‘slow time.’ Many in that county seat kept their clocks on Eastern time because they had jobs in our county seat.
It never bothered me that much one way or another, except I was shocked when I turned my computer on this morning and it read 8 am or so.
….and damn I envy that cat. Of course it’s probably been fixed.
