Clocks?  I'm retired.  What are these clocks of which you speak?

Since I left home at 17 I wore a watch everyday day of my life, there were a few exceptions, like hospital stays, but I just had to have a watch on. For the last 33 years of my career time meant everything. I worked in rail mass transit. 
I haven’t worn a watch a day since I retired in July 2022. I think I put my Russian one handed watch on one day to go out to dinner. It bugged me so I put it in my pocket.

I wore a watch up til I had to carry a pager. Then started leaving the watch home. Haven't worn one in decades!

Funny! Not bothered by the time change, except the dogs adapting.  I tried to stop wearing a watch when I retired.  That lasted about a week.  Much easier to stop carrying a phone, did that almost at once.  Best retirement clock, one my dear departed MIL gave me.

When I was a kid I had a science teacher that gave us an essay assignment. “If you could go back in time where and when would you like to end up?” Before class was over that day he added a caveat. “You will only be there one day and you cannot bring anything back with you.”

I knew of a barn that had sat idle on a piece of property. The property had been abandoned for at least 25 years. 
In my essay I said I would go back to 1957. I would steal as many cars and motorcycles as I could and stash them in that barn. At the end of the 24 hours I would come back and I would have several really cool old cars to drive once I replaced all the parts affected by age. 
I got a B on the assignment for ingenuity. My teach wrote a notation on my paper:

“You would have gotten an A if you hadn’t stolen all those cars.” He was a cool teacher.
