Five A.M.

Five AM is the most wonderful hour of the day.  Usually I sleep right through it, and I suppose most people do.

But...

   The grocer is up putting the produce on the shelves for the day.

   The trash men are driving their trucks along their route, banging the cans loudly as a wake up call for sleepy citizens

   The breakfast cook has started the first pot of coffee for the morning rush.

   The Postal worker is starting to sort the mail for delivery to homes today

   The night shift policeman is back in the office, filling out forms and getting ready to head for home and bed.

   The night hospital nurse is waking up patients she had to give sleeping pills to just a few hours ago. (Why do they wake patients up so early?)

   Today (only) Chuck was out enjoying the sunrise

My alarm is set to go off at 5:40. I try to postpone actually getting up until after 6:00.  Except on weekends... then, it's anyones guess!!

In the past I would always get up at the same time didn't need an alarm, now I get up when I wake up no matter the time. gg/Jackie

I get up early myself around 5:30 to 6:30. Glad you got to see the sunrise. So where was your camera? Helen
