Get To Bed!

Those words were spoken by my Mom, in increasing volume, during my high school years.  I wanted to stay up, visit with my older brother Bobby, already in the working world, and watching Johnny Carson.  I did not want to miss Joan Emery from the San Diego Zoo or Carol Wayne and those Tea Time Movies!!  Of course, staying up late meant too little sleep, and I was tired for high school classes.  It’s not different today, but we never dreamed of moving the school day to a later start time.  Heck, if they did that, I would just stay up a little later.  There is no need to change the school day.  It gets them prepared for life and working in the real world.  I mean, look at me now.  I wake up before 4am to get ready to wake people up on the radio at 6!  (No late night TV for me)
