Sentimental Sunday The Hero and The Moonbeam Attack

I would be willing to wager, that many have had this experience.   It was so funny.
Let me tell you a little bit about our top story in our home.  The ceiling is the roof, it is 25 ft tall, and there are the equivalent  of 15 ft tall windows.  Not all one piece of course, but they are collectively that tall.  I never found a curtain that I liked for them because I loved watching the clouds go by and the stars at night. 
With that setting in mind, I will take you into the story.
We had been working hard.  The Hero had been late to work a couple of times from over sleeping.  He was anxious when we went to bed, because his employer had been fussing at him about being late.
I drifted off to a deep sleep immediately. 
I was rudely awakened when the Hero jumped out of bed and started throwing his clothes on.  It was as bright as mid-day in the room.  I said, "What are you doing?"  He said, "I am late!  It must be about noon."  Peering at the clock, I sat back in bed giggling.  "Silly, it is only 2 am in the morning.  That is the moon shining so bright." 
He looked at the clock himself then grinned and laughed saying, "I can use some more sleep." 
Watch that old devil moon, it can fool you at times.  ; )
This was his favorite story to tell on himself when someone would talk about over sleeping.


  1. O, Hummer, it is good to be back and reading your Hero stories. Indeed, a funny one--- and a classic to all of us whose mind's never stop churning at night.

  2. Yrgysh loves these stories!
    Please don't stop.
    Umm... the moon through those windows was sureal...miss it.
