Please join us for the sleep-centered blues show on Walkiing The Blues Away, Saturday, the 10th at 5:oo pm on KRNN Juneau fm 102.7.  ( radio link:  http://www.krnn.org  )

National Napping Day is snoozed on the day after the return of daylight saving time to give folks the chance to catch up on the hour of sleep that they lost out on when clocks changed to the spring time.

A Boston University professor, William Anthony, has been credited with the origin of the event in 1999, primarily to emphasize on the import of sleep. Anthony is  reported to have said, “We chose this particular Monday because Americans are more ‘nap-ready’ than usual after losing an hour of sleep to daylight saving time.”

Gavin:  This contraption looks like a “kennel.”

Wyatt:  You may be correct as I believe it is called a “cage.”

Gavin:  I do not think we are allowed to play tug with these “sticks.”

Wyatt:  It seems obvious that we should “like the luck?”

Gavin:  No, no… the talk is about “ice the puck.”

Wyatt:  The event is called “ski jumping.”

Gavin:  It seems much more like “ski falling” to me.

Wyatt:  You just need to be patient and concentrate to get down the hill.

Gavin:  My concern is that I do not want to be a patient of the ambulance at the bottom of the hill.
