I've always been told that the older you get, the less you sleep.

That isn't true for me at near on 70.

Last night I went to bed at 10:45 pm and woke up at 9 a.m.--besides the one bathroom break at 5:45 a.m..

Many nights, but by no means all, I do have a bathroom wake up. But I fall to sleep within minutes of being back in bed.

I sleep like I did as a teenager. Probably better.

I estimate I sleep, on average, 9 1/2 hours a night.

Not bad for an old man.

A little wine before bedtime helps, but even when I was indisposed with my knee, I slept 9+ hours a night and no wine then.

I love to sleep, so it's a blessing.

I hope it doesn't go away.
