Happy Random Tuesday

 Link up with Happy Tuesday and/or Random Tuesday Thoughts.  Both are a fun time!

Last week Stacy was talking about Daylight Savings Time.  We switched two days ago, and my sleep patterns have not adjusted yet.  I'm not a fan of DST.  My husband likes that it stays light out longer, but I would argue that it's going to do that in the summer anyway.  I don't need light outside till almost 9PM, but as summer approaches, that's what will happen with DST.  It may be different depending on where you are located.

Hawaii, Arizona (most of it), and Puerto Rico do not have DST.  The only part of Arizona that does is the area that belongs to the Navajo Nation.  They do observe DST.  (The US Virgin Islands, the Mariana Islands, Guam, and American Samoa also do not observe Daylight Savings Time.) I think those of us who don't really like DST would be outvoted!

I can see how it could be useful for farmers way back before things became mostly automated, and for migrant workers whose children could  help with the crops after school since it would still be light out.  Other than that, I have no use for it.  But... I'm also a person who prefers to drive at night or on cloudy days.  The sun hypnotizes me and puts me to sleep.  So there's that.  What say you?

Yesterday would have been my dad's 87th birthday.  He's been gone since 2004.  His death was so sudden and unexpected.  We didn't get to say goodbye.  It's been a while, but it's still hard for me.  Saint Patrick's Day is coming up on Thursday, but it's not a big deal to me.  It was my grandfather's birthday, though, and yes, he was Irish.  Will you be having green beer on St Pat's or some other tradition?

I also took my mom to the dentist yesterday. They did her x-rays and we thought she was getting a cleaning, but they recommended a DEEP cleaning (insurance probably won't pay for that) and refused to give her a regular cleaning.  Needless to say, it was a waste of time and we won't be going back there!  They just want to do expensive procedures that are not necessary.  Don't use Sage Dental in Pearland, TX.  Now I'm looking for another new dentist for her.

On to the funnies!

And last, but not least...

Have a great week!


  1. Sorry about your dad and yikes on that dentist office that wants to jack up the price. Not a good thing. I wouldn't go there either.

    Love all the funnies. You always find great ones.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. ♥

  2. Heeheehee! Poor St. Paddy, blamed for a lot of stuff he wouldn't recognize.

    Thanks for the laughs!

  3. I am sorry you didn't get to say goodbye to your dad.
    I got that deep cleaning bs too. I think it is just to make more money.
