    Not too much anymore...although a regular thing before retirement. Now usually 6-7...never later than 7. Mrs was always a later riser than me, and she drives the TV sked in the evening. In any event, I'm done with getting 3-5 hours of sleep at night and saying "I'm good".

    I went to bed early last night.... 11. Woke up at 3 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so I'm up. Usually I'm up until 12:30-1:00 and sleep in until 8:00 or so....

    I average 3hrs/night. Sometimes I go 3 days straight with no sleep. I'm always up before the sun.

    5am every day here too. I get four to five hours of sleep and I pop awake, ready to hit the bricks.

    I've already cooked up (and eaten) a huge breakfast and I'm having my coffee and catching up on news before I head out to the shop.

    CHOP CHOP!

    I worked almost 30 yrs on the nightshift.

    Usually up by 6..two dogs insure that.
    Wife is still sleeping. As are the two mutts. I have to put the last coats of clear on my lake placid blue tele project
    Before it gets too hot and humid.

    How I admire you retired guys.
    Three more years for me and I am done.
    I am up by 5:30 seven days a week and will continue to do that after retirement.

    I wake up and fart several times...

    Have another shot and a beer and play my guitar and watch TV ...

    Then I take a nap ...

    And then I repeat the routine all day ...

    Usually in bed by 10:30 through the week, but stay up later on weekends. We're up by 5:00 most mornings and have our coffee watching the morning propaganda. Usually don't eat breakfast until about 9:00. I'm not a late sleeper, if I sleep till around 6:00 , that's sleeping in for me. I can play a gig, when we were gigging before this virus thing, and be up til 2 or 3 in the morning, and I'll still be out of bed by 6:00.

    I'm usually up about 3. The very early morning is my favorite time of day.

    Normally 6:00am. Shower, dress, let the dog out. Coffee and visit here. That pretty much kills it for the morning.
