Hello all you lucky people!
You have both Autumn the Puppy and Waxy Dragon here today as the United States of America begins its annual Daylight Savings Time Observance.
A good watch dog. No ticks!

"Now then,"
began Autumn, "Congress decided to extend America's use of Daylight Savings Time by roughly two weeks in Spring and an additional week in October. Except for Arizona and Hawaii, the whole country
is now one hour ahead of where we were this time yesterday.
"Yet, while other parts of the world will soon join the party; Argentina, China, Ecuador, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Indonesia, Japan, Peru, Puerto Rico, Russia, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Taiwan, and Vanuatu don't participate either."

Flying to Spring, wherever it is.
"Odd," said Waxy Dragon, "but to each their own. I've always thought of Daylight Savings Time as the start of Spring, but since Congress changed things, it's still winter outside! I do hope Spring gets here soon! I miss seeing the flowers in bloom and leaves on the trees.
"In the meantime (no pun intended), here are the jokes folks!"

What time is it when the clock strikes 13?
Time to get a new clock!

Why did the man throw the clock out the window?
He wanted to see time fly!

"Grandpa, why don't you throw that broken clock away?"
"Because I paid good money for it. Besides, it's still right twice a day."

What kind of clock does a night owl never use?
A sun dial!

"If there are grandfather clocks, how come there are no grandmother clocks?" asked Waxy.
"Probably because women get it right the first time," answered Autumn.
"Right on!" said Waxy. "But is time travel possible?"
"It must be, because it's now a couple of minutes later than when everyone started reading this column!" replied Autumn.

And on that note, have a great week everybody and please be back here next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!
AtP and WD.
