Climate change and the effect on milkweed, bittersweet and other fence row vegetation

Here we are on a chilly Monday morning. Last night I decided me and the Doughboy would make some cinnamon rolls this morning. I set the alarm to get up a bit early. For some reason I set the clock for 7:10 instead of 6:10. By a miracle I opened my eyes and looked at the clock -- it read 6:10.  I wondered why the alarm did not go off and checked the time.  I had screwed up and set the wrong time..  I woke for some reason on time. Is this a miracle or a coincidence?

Of course it was really only 6:00 in the aye em. For a bizarre reason I have never understood, the wife wants the bedroom clock set ten minutes fast. She claims it helps her get ready on time. I am not sure of that logic since we all know the clock is ten minutes fast. She has insisted on this for the almost 28 years we have been married, and I gave up pointing out the idiocy of this practice long ago.

The boy went to the prom on Saturday evening.  He looked sharp in his tux and his date was beautiful in her full, long dress. He said he had a good time.

I hope your weekend was a good one.  Now get to work.

I know, but "me and..." has been a long secret theme around here..."Me and Elvis are going to a Clambake", "Me and Audrey are having Breakfast at Tiffany's", etc.

It has taken 7 years for someone to call me out.

I do the same thing with my bedroom alarm clock. Makes perfect sense to me. I also set the clock in the car ahead a bit to improve my chances of making appts. on time.
