I'm one of those creatures who needs sun. So is Boz. Like the kitty in this photo, every morning Boz positions himself in a sunny spot by the window and soaks up the rays. Our rainy season affects him so badly that on gray days he gets downright depressed. You've never seen such misery in a spoiled pet.
Today is one of my favorite days of the year because we set our clocks forward one hour. Now we can finally get a few extra rays of sunlight each day.
Daylight Saving Time was invented by a New Zealand entomologist named George Vernon Hudson. He wanted more daylight hours after work at his day job for collecting bugs. (The things you learn on Wikipedia!)
Fine with me. What I can't figure out is why we have to set our clocks back in the fall.
