Can you dput() your data frame? There are a different few time objects
in R and details might depend which one you have. Though, if it's
printing like that, I'd guess it's actually a string that you can
convert to a Date using as.Date(, format = XXX) where you can work out
the formatting from the documentation in ?strptime.
