Not me. But I do love waking up early and appreciating the fact that I don't have to get up.

I've always been a hardcore night owl but the few mornings I've experienced were really enjoyable.

“Early to bed early to rise” I’m up by 5:45 a.m. everyday. Never use the alarm unless it’s something important.

So . . . how many of you retirees still set an alarm clock? And if you do, why, and do you set it for every day, or what?
Why do people set alarm clocks anyway? Why wouldn't they simply go to bed in plenty of time to get adequate sleep, and wake up naturally?
