Time Banditry (Continued)

I felt lost in a fog today.  This nagging head cold won’t go away.

It’s 5:15pm Saturday, the sun is ready to set.  Tomorrow, it will be 4:15pm, at this time, and the sun will be ready to set.

Not to mention all the clocks that will have to be set back one hour.

Those of you familiar with “The Button Down Mind of Bob Newhart” comedy routines will understand the following imaginary one-sided telephone conversation.

“This is the police station.  How can I help you?”

“Calm down Mr. Smith.  What did you just find?”

“A missing hour?”  Bob Newhart’s face is twisted in disbelief.

“Yes, Mr. Smith, I’m still here.  Well, that’s certainly good news.”

“When did the hour turn-up missing?  Since last March.?”

“Will you be needing any further assistance?  Thank you for keeping us informed.  Enjoy your extra hour–within parameters of the law, of course.”
