Retro273 – Who Has The Time. Life in these modern times has become so confusing, and the situation is no different in the Anderson home. Jim gets ready to catch the news broadcast, but his habit of laying out maps of the world as a reference resource is an annoyance to mom. Betty is faced with a dihlemma of choosing a shade of nail polish. Bud is getting ready for a hay ride, and is oblivious to the torment that he brings on dear old dad. As the kids congregate in the kitchen for a snack, Jim and Margret debate over how to set the clocks for the daylight savings time that happens on this particular evening. Back? or ahead? It seems that just about every family member has adjusted the clock. What do you think? Will anybody make it to their various social events?
The next day the kids go with dad to meet aunt Martha at the train station. It’s turning out to be a mixed up day. How about those crazy kids? Hungry, sleepy, getting lost. Not to mention confusion from the information booth. What should Jim do now? Kathy actually has an idea that manages to save the day.
Epilog: Despite the strange weekend, Betty learns she has set a fashion trend, Bud has avoided a case of poison ivy that plagued his hayride companions. Kathy is the queen of her class when she knows about daylight savings time. But does Jim and Margret ever settle the confusion of gaining an hour… or losing an hour?
Andrews Sisters. 1950. I Can Dream Can’t I?
PS: When I checked, some sources had the date for the Andrews Sister’s tune as 1949, and others claimed it was one of the top hits of 1950.
