I always say that the only thing my mother ever taught us that was sinful was SLEEPING! My husband would sleep 12 hours a day--if I let him! To his credit, he says, "I got up at 4:30 in the morning for 35 years; I'm going to sleep as long as I want now!"
My niece came to live with us and a Sunday morning ritual at that time was: my brother Neil would drop by to read the Sunday newspaper and he, Mother, and I would have breakfast. Gerald was always still in bed and Neil's wife was always at home in bed. The first Sunday my niece was with us, my mother looked at the clock and it was 8:00 AM and my niece had not yet come downstairs. Mother asked, "Do you think she's going to sleep ALL day?"
