Yes you're right on this one Robert as for me its a bit earlier than 11:00P.M
its 9:00P.M since I'm up at 5:00A.M every morning and sometimes earlier. So like you I'm off to bed now. I know...I'm old

Good night everybody and sweet dreams yawn.gif

Lord, I'm getting so old that I'm almost afraid to go to sleep!

Fortunately I listen to Celtic relaxation music at night so, if it is my time to go, at least I'll have nice music to send me off! angel.gif

Wow, those comparisons are so true. Even when I went to school in the 70s it was so different than it is now. If I went to school today and acted like I did then, I would be the one being expelled.

Faerydreamer - I can assure you that you would not be the only one of us 70's kids that would be on the outside looking in if we were in school today! Mind, as I think back on some of those escapades, it might still have been worth it! laugh.gif

This topic reminds me of a joke.

3 old men are sitting on their porch at the retirement home.

First old man says: "I wish I could take a pee when I wake up in the morning."

Second old man says: "I don't have that problem, but I wish I could take a poop when I wake up in the morning."

Third old man says: "I don't have any of those problems. 8am take a pee, 9am take a poop. I only wish I could wake up before 10am."
