Mona's Real Estate Matters and a Myriad of Other Conversations: Oh! How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning...Gain an Hour, Right!

Oh! How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning...Gain an Hour, Right!

Dogs could care less about the so called Daylight Savings Time change.  Five years ago I was getting up at 5:30 every morning to take care of dogs and had been for 20 some years. Then it creeped to 6:15, then to 6:30, then 7:00 and most recently once our poor sick Gigi passed away, 7:45! Crazy, right?  It has probably been 30 years since I slept that late! Finally, a full night's sleep...felt strange but I was getting used to it. THEN...November 1 and freaking D.L.S.T.  Gain an hour they say, obviously "they" don't have dogs.

We've slipped back to 6:15 for the morning reveille of dogs.  It was delicious while it lasted, sleeping until past 7:00 and maybe it won't take another five years before I see it again.

Good morning Mona and nice to see you here. I agree that with dogs the mornings are always the same. I really enjoyed the video too.

I don't have anyone or anything to wake me up.....just my head, and that's worse than any dog could ever wakes me about 5 times during the night. Imagine how bad it would be if there happened to be something in it.

Good Monday morning Mona Gersky -

The time change really screws with my too. I walked out at 6:10 last night to find the outside lights on and darkness. That bites.

Good morning, Mona -- you're so right about animals --- their internal clocks never seem to change.   Here's to a Happy November.

I know the feeling . . . rise and shine!  Their tummies are set to "grumble" at day break.

Good morning, Mona. Just stopping by to say 'hello' and see how you're doing. Hope life is treating you well, and that you are prospering.
