Just wanted to do a little public service to the thousands on my blog
subscription list and the millions more who read it by RSS feed:

TONIGHT is the night to set your clock BACK one hour.

If you ever get confused, just remember this handy little saying:

When you trip you FALL FORWARD and when you are surprised you SPRING BACK.

That will help you always remember which way to move your clock.

Enjoy that extra hour of sleep tonight!!

    Hope this is an April fool’s joke. It’s fall back spring forward. Hope you’re not late for church tomorrow if by chance you aren’t just trying to fool everyone on your blog. I think you’re the confused

  10. OK, OK, it was an April Fool’s Joke – but judging by the messages on my home phone, church voice mail, e-mails and text messages…. I fooled a BUNCH OF YOU!!!


  11. Well, me – being the Master of Obliviousness that I am – completely fell for it. Was lucky enough to wake up just in time to rush out the door and make it to my Sunday School class.

    Daylight savings time is the stupidest human invention ever… spring back, fall forward, blabla – I feel like I just fell flat on my face!

  12. Sure it was an April Fool’s joke… you really did get it wrong and are just trying to cover for making the church miss church.

  13. Can I get my hour of sleep back now?
