Daylight Savings Time

My great-uncle Joe never took much heed with Daylight Savings Time.  I don’t remember which time he kept, I just remember that he never sprang forward or fell back.  His watch remained and he would add (or subtract!) an hour half the year, each year.

I’m sure he wasn’t the only one to do this, but he’s the one I remember most.  I would sit in his lap and look at his wrist watch like it was going to tell me something I didn’t already know.

This isn’t the best picture of him, but it was all I could find of him alone today.
