Next week we enter the darkness and I am not just talking about a new governor. Daylights (insert your own personal descriptive adjective now) Savings Time begins Sunday. Here’s What I’m Thinking about that: I HATE IT! Remember that old TV commercial about margarine tasting like butter? The tag line was “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.” I feel certain there is a distinct correlation between Global Warming and Daylights Savings Time. If there wasn’t so much daylight, maybe there would not be so much melting away. I would like to make this plea once again. Leave the time alone. There is electricity. Tractors have lights. You can farm all year round. Speaking of time and things agricultural, it is that time of year during the Aggie football season when I begin to think – This is painful, when do my Aggie Women’s basketball tickets arrive? Well, it was yesterday. Tomorrow, I am having lunch with Coach Gary Blair. Me and about 500 more people. I signed up for the six luncheons hosted by the team. Beats the Hell out of the Burnt Orange room. I sure hope the food is better too. I wonder if the Aggies still hold up newspapers while the visiting team is being introduced. It was to express our boredom with the visitors. So it’s time to hear a WHOOP for the ladies basketball team. None of whom I would want to meet in a dark alley alone.
