Montgomery locals

By Staff | Nov 3, 2009

Over this past weekend, we all wasted more than a few minutes adjusting the time on wristwatches and wall clocks, the stove and microwave oven, the coffeemaker and the car. On Saturday, I heard one of the TV weathermen make a comment about how we would be late for everything if we forgot to change our clocks. Ah no, we would be early, which would only give us time to reflect on the time we were wasting waiting. Sometimes you just can’t win!
