Is the reason we get up earlier as we get older because if you stay in bed any longer you're going to hurt all day? Or is that just me?

I sleep later because I can and I hurt less in the bed. Hunting and trapping are about the only things I get up early for anymore.

Early mornings are the best part of the day, why waste it! Always hurting, that’s just part of getting old! Always worked hard and trapped hard that’s the reward when you stop!

How old do you have to be for qualifying as an old fart ?

I get up early because the longer I stay in bed the more the joints hurt. After being up an hour or so in the morning I am good to go.

When you get to the point you are farting dust....that's when you are a bona fide old fart.

I go to bed around 10:00 PM or a bit before, I wake up for a nature call around midnight and again around 3:00 AM, it is hard for me to go back to sleep at that point so I toss and turn until around 5:00 AM, I then get up and spend time on the internet, of late I've been going back to bed around 7:00 AM and catching a couple hours sleep. I think that my medications have disrupted my normal sleeping habits.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Was thinking it was just me, get up to pee, back to bed, It's great for a little while, but to long & everything hurts when I get up.

I’ve spent 45 years waking up at 530 to go to work. Add to that the earlier wake up calls for hunting, fishing and trapping from anywhere from 2- 430. I guess I’m always gonna wake up early. The aches and pains of laboring has a minimal effect on wake-up time. Urination is always a factor

Get a sleep study done….Since I’ve had my C-Pap machine…I don’t get up to pee. The doctor said …you get up to go to the bathroom Cuz your not sleeping.

Sometimes we become old farts much earlier than others. Not all roads are paved and some taken can't really be called roads....

If I didn't get up to pee, I'd wake up in a water bed. Lol

Both...lol
Gotta get up to pee at least twice, sometimes more, and laying in bed too long just plain hurts when you do stagger up...now sitting... I can do sitting, till I stand up and gravity takes over and I gotta pee, again...LOL
Getting old ain't for sissies.

So heres a tip, I wear foul weather gear on the boat every day, keep your pants zipper open cause when the urge strikes, and it comes on fast, you got a very short time to get those suspenders and bibs down before your peeing down your leg.. grin
