Am I the only one ….. who has ever marveled at how long it takes for an hour to go by?


For me, the longest hour of the day is between six PM and seven PM. Trust me; I know every hour is precisely 60 minutes long; therefore they are all exactly the same length.

Doesn’t matter! That hour still takes longer to go by than all the rest of them.

Let me explain…. We generally eat our dinner shortly after 7 PM each evening. Usually, by 5:30 I’m getting hungry. By six, I’m starving and by seven, I can eat the container that dinner comes in. That last half hour from 6:30 to 7:00 feels like it takes at least a week to go by.

Then 7 o’clock finally gets here and we sit down to our dinner.  It’s all over in a matter of minutes and I’m wondering why was I so anxious. By 8:00 I’m ready for our evening snack, but Sweetie doesn’t allow me to have it until 8:30. That said however, I have to say that it goes by a hell of a lot faster than it would if it fell between 6 and 7 PM.

Conversely, I generally get up each morning right around 7 AM.  At my age, I rarely sleep through the entire night without having to make a trip to the bathroom (sometimes more than one) which usually takes place between 5:30 and 6 AM.  That means that I still have roughly an hour to lie there and revel in the fact that I still don’t have to get up yet. There isn’t an hour in my day that I enjoy as much as that one. I just love crawling back into bed and cuddling up to my body pillow which is usually still warm.  Unfortunately not a single hour during my day goes by as fast as this one seems to.  It feels like I just get settled in when the clock strikes seven and it’s time to get up. My fondest wish would be that these two hours on the clock could somehow reverse themselves.   Any suggestions?

AUTOMOTIVE HINTS Exit signs – Something I recently discovered,,,, Those big green signs on the major highways that show your exit is coming up,,,, If the little exit sign at the top of the big sign is on the left side it means the exit is on the left. On the right side means exit right.

Another little tid-bit that I recently heard was how to get Free air – At Shell® gas stations, I’ve been told if you press the button on the side of the air pump three times,  The pump will start without having to insert coins.
