here comes the sun

And not a moment too soon. Today, after what seems like for-flipping-ever, we return to Daylight Saving Time in our final approach to spring.

Try as they might, the government can’t stop the coming of springtime. Besides, they’re too busy to notice. When the GOP isn’t hiding in pre-dawn legislative sessions, they’re on the run from constituents. One Republican Senator from Wisconsin, a Senator Ron Johnson, actually sent off a cease and desist letter to one constituent, demanding he stop calling and asking to meet.

How do those weasels live with themselves? They scurry and blow smoke, spotting conspiracies and bogeyman at every turn. I wouldn’t have their twisted, fearful lives for all the money in the world — which seems to be their ultimate goal.

Well, that and disgracing the country, something they’ve a remarkable talent for. According to a new study from U.S. News & World Report, the United States has fallen from number four to number seven on the 2017 Best Countries in the World list. Good job, Senators and Congressional Representatives. Keep being water carriers for the one percent and we’ll be rock bottom in no time flat.

Me, I’ll take a lesson from Mark Twain:
‘Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.’

Could I add spring breeze to the list? Nothing is more exhilarating than a soft, warm, gentle wind scented with springtime. One whiff and, sproing, you feel taller and stronger and younger. It’s the fountain of youth, I think, or very close to it. Now, if you’ll pardon me …

  1. When daylight savings was first introduced here in Australia there was such a hullabaloo about it. People complained that their curtains would fade with the exrra hour of sunlight (duh!) and the cows would get confused with different milking times. There is still one state that refuses to have daylight saving. Me? I love it 🙂

    1. Me, too! I love the long evenings and waking up to sunshine. This is my favorite time of year, from now until Labor Day — which is in early September and marks the official end of summer here. To me, it’s a national day of mourning. Everyone else, though, likes it. Go figure :o/
