Three AM is no problem. I went to bed at nine. Up getting my anti-oxidents with green tea. But it is hard to type at this early hour. Make lots of typos. For instance, here is an IM (Instant Message) exchange with a lady in Alabama.>>>
Chasferris: it wrong icon jot hit wrong I con lol.... I hit tje wr...shdeeit... I hit the wrong icon... sorry
Chasferris: still rainjng? Stars fell on Alabama. george played yesterday... delightful
Chasferris: one thing about three am... it is sure hard to type
Chasferris: what are you going up at three am?...ah, not to worry... I went to bed a nine.
Chasferris: doing....at nine
Chasferris: I was going to make an entry in journal, but considering the typos I am making, it would be a waste of time
Chasferris: aren't you dressed yet?
Chasferris: oh, making tea? How can you do that with the screen barking at you.
And the lady is not answering? I wonder why.
One last word on Halloween: Of the kids who came by for candy treats dressed in Pooh Suits, Ranger uniforms, or Super Batman Capes, not one looked happy. Where were the happy children last night? They looked like they were being pushed along by squads of mothers who had to prompt them to say "thank you" for every nickel piece of candy they bummed off folks.
Note next year Halloween will come during daylight savings time. (They're changing the time, not the date.) At least they wont start coming at five pm. We can have dinner in peace.
Better yet, let's ban Halloween. The kids don't like it, parent's hate it, and adults who have no kids hate it most of all. Teachers will love to teach school on Nov. 1 without having to remind pupils to "spit out that chewing gum".
