I know, all my US readers will wonder what I’m talking about, as you moved the clocks forward for summer time just over a week ago. We here in Europe arent quite so keen, as we move the clocks forward this weekend. Yes, the loss of an hours sleep, and all that, mutter, mutter…lol!
In theory at least, spring officially starts here, by the way. No, it doesnt feel like it at present, I must say. But yes, the notable landmark for me, the start of the baseball season is a mere 9 days away, though I wouldnt fancy watching it in Cleveland, Boston, or Colorado at present, to name a few. There is somewhere even more northerly of course, Toronto, but yes, that can be an indoor stadium, so temperature is less of an issue. My ‘fondest’ memory would be April baseball in Rochester (minor league), when the temperature was barely above freezing. In practice it was a double header, but one game in freezing weather was more than plenty for me!
Of course the more amusing date we are heading for, slightly further ahead than this weekend, is the arrival of the twenties! So yes, everyone needs to get back into Jazz music, Flapper dresses, and illegal booze lol! Oh, I wish! Oh fine, I suspect the 2020’s will be very different to the 1920’s, and lets definitely hope they dont end with the same crash at the end of that decade, though I strongly suspect I wont care by then, either way! But yes, I’ll keep my new flapper dress, just in case we get a twenties match up! 😉
In truth, I need summer, and some heat to arrive, the sooner the better. Fine, here in the UK, I doubt the heat we will get will have any dramatic effect on my back, unfortunately. So if someone wants to pay for me to move to somewhere where its hot all year round, I would appreciate it, though not expecting it to happen. Yes, in hindsight, going as far north as Seattle, even in May might not have been my best option, but I’ll survive, I guess?
And yes, I know, I’ll get my hour of sleep back at the end of October (just before US does), but thats a long way off! Well, hopefully it is, as thats when the baseball season ends, lol! But yes, I’m hoping the spring forward with the clocks, will be matched by a spring upwards in temperatures. Yes, stop laughing!
Right, video time. What we wont be doing on Saturday night/ Sunday morning, when an hour of time will beat us, not the other way round!
