    Honesty kills motivation.


    To those who don’t observe, enjoy the day off.

    A nice warm cup of coffee helps warm up a morning

    I’m happy for a day off that will be used to have friends over to share food and companionship.

    Never used an alarm clock, they were annoying, just went to bed knowing when I had to get up! Never failed!

    Breakfast in bed is a good start.

    The fact that you woke up is the most amazing thing that happens in the morning!

    At my age, the most exciting thing about waking up in the morning is waking up in the morning.

    My spine is like an elevator and in the mornings my brains are in the basement. Before going to sleep I’ll tell my brains (my mind/subconscious) to ‘wake up @ at a quarter to five’ and it never fails. I haven’t used an alarm clock in more than forty years. I can’t stand that grating noise. I’ll flash on it from time to time during the day.

    Waking up is nice. And, it sure beats the alternative.

    The most exciting thing to me is if I get to sleep until the sun is actually up.

    Such an honest answer deserves something, Pig. Maybe an extra ten minutes of sleep….

    Merry Christmas, Stephan and fans of Cartoon-Boy!

    Those of you with no alarm or snooze button, you must not have dogs or cats to keep you on schedule.

    By the time you’re my age, your first thought on waking is to make it to the loo before you wet yourself.
