Tennyson's Time!

It being regrettably 'Spring Forward, Fall back' time once more - in other words, last night @ 2AM British Summer Time officially ended and we gained a hour - much needed by me, I will add!
But, returning to Greenwich Meantime, does mean the evenings grow darker earlier, and Mother & I both hate that.
However, here in this Hug, we follow Grandmother's way of not actually changing the clocks over till during today, Sunday!!!
Now, finding that Hug member Tennyson had his own personalised time piece...

I put him in charge of altering all our household clocks and watches, as thought it would help Mother
And, save me the task!
He had quite a few to do this morning...And, the chiming long wall clock, was a huge challenge...First, there was the pendulum to sort...Then, the clock hands to re-position...But, I have to admit Tennyson has done a fine job.
Though, I am unsure, if he did get around to Mother's Radio Alarm Clock!
Only waking up time tomorrow morning will tell that!!!
Hugs,

Woodstock,
Please tell Tennyson he has done a great job. Having his beary own special clock would make him time conscious.

In 2007 America made a change to DST. We now fall back an hour on the first Sunday of Novembear. We don't care much for it getting dark earlier either. Mom wishes they'd just leave time alone, compromise in the middle and just leave it.

Mom said to tell your mother she has a beautiful wall clock.

Hugs to all,
Buttons

That Tennyson is a very accommodating bear. You have lots and lots of clocks. I used to tease my mother about the number of clocks in her house, at least one wall clock in every room, and now I look around and see I've taken up where she left off. Of course some of them were hers. ;)
Love,
Aunt BJ

He is a very resourceful bear. I hope you have recovered from your big party.

It's nice that you found some help for your Mom when she had to redo all those clocks. My mom is usually in charge of resetting all the clocks in her house too. Maybe I will help this year!

We love clocks. It looks like Tennyson does, too, and he is a very good caretaker. You know, it seems as if analog clocks, like newspapers and hand written thank you notes may be slowly losing their special place in today's life. That makes us a little sad. Darn! We didn't want to go there because we started this little message off with a smile!

Back to smiling, just looking at Tennyson's sweet face.
Love
Jake and Fergi xxoo
