Five roosters means you don’t need an alarm clock
Chuck and Miriam Foster have five roosters that begin crowing at 3 a.m. you wouldn’t need an alarm clock with these around. When I was growing up we had chickens but I don’t recall having any that crowed that early. I think that it was about five a.m. I thought that was early!Frieda White spent the weekend at Christie’s house while she was away on business in New York. Frieda “cat-sat.”
Monday morning I looked at the clock and wondered how in the world the time had flown so fast. My husband asked this friend who was here if she had set her clock ahead. I realized that he thought that the weekend of the second was the time that he thought the time change came. He had set our clocks an hour ahead on Monday. I told him that the time change is March 10. So to you don’t forget to spring ahead!
