    Yeah maybe . . . When you're my age, everyday brings something new. The other day, during my walk, I stumbled and fell. Imagine that! Scraped up a bit, but I don't think anything broke. I could tell you more of my daily surprises, but I'm sure you don't wanna hear about 'em.

    Gittin' old ain't for sissies. Just enjoy the good days. Que sera, sera . . .

    Anyone awake out there? It's 0135 here, and I can't stay asleep. I fell asleep on the couch earlier, and that always messes me up.

    I think lots of people stay up this late most nights. I wonder what time they get up in the morning. Usually, when I'm up late at night, I still wake up at 0530 or 0600--bummer! Old people are tired all the time, one sees them dozing here-and-there. I wonder why we have trouble sleeping at night.

    I know I'm blithering. It's just somethin' ta do I guess. It's better than tossing and turning in bed.

    You're 8 hours behind us over here, in the UK, so whilst we're awake, most of us have already gone out - hope you got some sleep.

    Edit: You need to get yourself a 'silent' uke so that you can practice without waking others, just sing along in your head rather than out loud.

    'Twas a bad night with little sleep. I know about the eight hours difference. Thanks for answering my call.

    I like to go to bed early and wake early.

    Don't fight it Dick. That just makes it harder to sleep. Anyway, I don't know if you have a bed time. After I retired I just go to sleep when I'm tired, and I get up when I get up. But I doz off watching TV sometimes too. But I tend to go to bed late and get up late, compared to my friends anyway. But when I wake up at night and can't sleep I like to just lay there and listen to the night sounds. I enjoy doing that. It is relaxing.

    Well, heck, woke up at 0300 for the now usual "old man reason" and then tossed and turned until four. Finally, I gave up trying to go back to sleep and got up. I suppose I'll be dozing off, now and again, for the rest of the day. That'll probably keep me me from sleeping well tonight--BLAH!! I wonder why those who are old and weakened and ill and tired all the time can't sleep well (sigh . . .).

    I need a sound-proof room where I could whack away at some music when I can't sleep.

    No need for that, (& cheaper), get yourself a RISA electric, mini amp, plug in some headphones, & rock the night away.

    EDIT: Or one of these, its cheaper - https://www.omegamusic.co.uk/product...lectro-ukulele
