The days are growing shorter...
The leaves are falling too...
The sun sinks early in the sky...
Until it is no longer, blue...
The clock is quickly ticking...
It is that time of year...
When we need to be reminded...
The time to turn our clocks is here...
We move an hour of daylight…
To the morning from the night…
If you forget to do it…
It could be a terrible fright…
Turn them back, not forward...
And if you do it right...
You will be able to enjoy...
An extra hour of sleep tonight...

Mr. Common Sense


I learned about Mr. Common Sense early in my life and was often told I would do well to call on him when making decisions. It seems he was always around in my early years, but less and less as time passed by and today I read his obituary.Please join me in a moment of silence in remembrance for Common Sense had served us all so well for so many generations.

Today, we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.


He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm, that life isn't always fair, and maybe it was my fault.


Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).


His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.


Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job they themselves failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin or sun lotion to a student; but could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.


Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.


Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by three stepbrothers; I Know my Rights, Someone Else is to Blame, and I'm a Victim.


Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone.

There are many things in our lives to consider changing in some way or the other - one exception is Clay!
He's wonderful being himself, that's why I love him!
