In reference to time spent idly: A Yankee city slicker was driving in Appalachia when he saw a farmer holding a large pig in his apple orchard. The farmer would lift the pig to an apple on a branch and the pig would eat it. The city slicker approached the farmer and suggested he shake the tree, let some apples fall and then let the pig eat them. The farmer wanted to know the advantage of that. The city slicker replied, "It would save time," to which the farmer replied, "What's time to a hog."
It is dark at night, but the Sun will come up and then we can see.
