Any egg hunts, spring fundraisers or related activities and events out there?
We probably missed mentioning the return of Daylight Savings Time, but we don’t miss the very early sunlight creeping in our bedroom window and waking our little cat to wake us for his first feeding of the day, which he works at so well.
Today is 04/05/06. I like the look of that.
I used to play a game with the number patterns on the digital clock at hubby’s law office back in the day:
It was a clock/radio, and there was a “back-to-sleep” feature that let you hit a button, and the radio would play for an hour. Actually, 59 minutes.
He set it to go off initially at, say, 8:16, to remind him it was time to leave for court.
Music would play until 9:15.
Hit it again, and 10:14 was the next shut-off time.
Another hit, 11:13.
Next digital end time 12:12.
Hey, that makes a pattern from the daughter’s birthday to her younger son’s.
Coincidence or not?
