At Three In The Morning

Not even Anthony Bourdain holds my interest. If not for the noise I'd sneak into the garage and return to my current restoration project, but it wouldn't be fair to my wife as she sleeps the sleep of the innocent.

Perhaps I should take coffee cup in hand and stroll the neighborhood, amble down to the river and listen to the wind. Then again, I should take care of the first of the month bills; sit and write checks, balance the accounts. After all, it's either tackle the task here or later at my office.

A few minutes ago I even contemplated my old Marlin and a magazine filled with .22 CB caps. I thought why not sneak out and place a target on the back fence then ease a chair out to the edge of the deck. I have night vision equipment and shots towards the river are safe silent gunnie therapy.

My eyes burn. Think I'll just take that walk.

By the way, Anthony Bourdain is a wuss.

  1. Good morning!
    Although I detest waking up that early I will admit that once you get up and going it is such a beautiful time of day. My usual thought is "It's so peaceful and quiet, no one has ruined my day yet" :)

    Enjoy your morning Stephen,
    John

  4. I got to sleep in until 6 a.m. this morning. It's been a few days of waking up between 2:30 and 4. Anyone who's seen me knows I need my beauty sleep.

    That hour or two alone with a coffee, before the lovely wife gets up, is a good part of the day.

    Bills will wait until the second or third cup of coffee.

  5. Good Morning Stephen,
    I was up early this morning enjoying coffee too. The skies are beautiful here this morning. Crystal clear and the stars and planets were amazing to see. Usually the clouds cover them up. I hope you get some sleep tonight. Maybe being up all night will allow you the pleasure of sleep later. Have a wonderful day!

  9. I used to love being up in the early a.m., but these days it just means another day at the office ... need to get out more.

    I hope you get some rest, my friend; the world's a brighter place after a good night's sleep.

    1. I know how you feel. I was here in my office an hour early. I've had a busy morning...writing checks. I hate the first of the month. Thanks, and take care my friend.
