Dear Kathe: Thank-you for this wonderfully "spring forward" Haiku~! Even though I want to sleep to catch up...it is already Spring? Ring Ring...still sleepy~!

Couldn't be more "timely," Enjoyable....

Groping, indeed.

Tell me again why we have to change times? My son lived in Arizona, and I think they have it right.
