I miss her so much.
We had such good times together. Any time of the day, she was just a phone call away, ready to give me what I needed.
She's been gone a few years now, and she is missed.
I'm referring, of course, to the Time Lady. You know, that voice that would say "At the tone, the time will be...", and was always located at a number ending in 1212. A few years ago, she stopped answering. Now there is no way to find out what time it is without using a short-wave radio. The times showing on clocks in the house are now all over the place. Computer clocks always seem to be off, as do cell phone clocks. Computer network clocks are even worse. Now everywhere I go, there seem to be a variation in what clocks and watches say the time is that varies by as much as 10 or 15 minutes. I just want time to be measured more accurately.
Where did she go? I figured I'd ask Google. Sure enough, there's a nice biographical page:
Jane Barbe died in 2003, which is around when the time lady phone number went silent.
