It's harvest season and I ain't getting no sleep!

My husband is working the graveyard shift at the local winery, as the graveyard foreman (sorry Lee he doesn't actually stump on the grapes).

Because of that I can't sleep at night.

Who knew I needed someone to take too much of the bed, steal the covers (this time of the year it's the sheet), and snore in my ear so that I can get some mush needed rest at night?

When I do lay there willing sleep to come I start at every little noise, or when I finally drift off I'm woken up by a thump on the front porch, or rustle in my bedroom, and one time my cell wanted attention and made that odd noise like a bloop or a bleep--that says "hey stupid, recharge me now!"

The worst was the other night; I had just dozed off when right in my ear was a whine of a mosquito--dang it!

I slapped at it and my head until my head rang like a school yard bell.

And I swear that darn little sucker gave a high pitched giggled, as it flew off.

Nothing more annoying than a skeeter unless it's a fly. Either way, forget about sleeping.

Hi Janice, Granny got in first with that annoying mossie in the room , I used to spray the bedroom just before bed time but got tired of doing that so now get the house sprayed every twelve months. now i never even have to spray a fly. ,

Hi Janice ~~ Nothing worse than a mozzie and you can never slap it- I reckon they would laugh at us for trying. I have a can os Flyspray in the bedroom, but don't get too many.
We are creatures of habit and if you are used to sleeping with your husband, it is strange to be on your own. I turn a radio. so I won't hear little noises. Glad you enjoyed my jokes. Take care, Love, Merle.

Damn! I was hoping Mr. Janice was a "stomper", Janice! I've wicked images here of you sucking his toes! ;)

Hi Ann,

Your right there!

Hi Jeannette,

So a mossey is a misquito in in your neck of the woods?

Hi Merle,

I don't spray with the amount of cancer I have in my family I don't dare.

Hi Lee,

Your very B-a-a-d!

And no he sucks my toes, he he.

Your lady Jan~

Sometimes the comments here are as amusing as the posts.

Well said.

Hi Dave,

Well, I'm glad my sleeplessness amuses someone, sniff.
