Walk the Dog

Did you set your clocks back? Today in the US (except super smart Arizona), we do the godforsaken time change. This change messes me up for a week. No idea why. I guess I’m just crazy time sensitive.   Bob re-set most of the clocks last night. Yes, he rocks. And when I woke up in the dark...
