Early Songs… No!

We like having friends, family & neighbours who enjoy visiting our home. We both have limited mobility & at the very first part of each day we struggle more with pain too. Our cousin Kerry & her partner Alison came to stay for 7 nights and were enthusiastic to visit us & this city. We spoke to Kerry on the phone many times in recent months & although she has lived 250 miles away we have talked extensively & skyped hundreds of times. She did like the idea of so much ‘freedom’ and that bringing Alison along wasn’t a problem in any way.

On the first morning of their stay I was (as usual) out of my bed by 4:45am although my wife often gets up around 7:30. As always I moved with pain & difficulty to the bathroom, it takes quite a while to shave, wash & clean my teeth. Just around 5:15 I was just ready to leave the bathroom when in came Alison, naked & quite merrily singing away, with just a nod in my direction she immediately sat on the toilet and began urinating! I moved as quickly as  I could out of there and went to the kitchen, there I found Kerry equally naked & happily singing as she prepared 2 bowls of cereals. I said “good morning” between her bursts of song and tried to get at my various pills & medicines. Kerry went off to the back porch and put on the tv, soon to be joined by Alison. I tried to keep calm and polite, I simply said to our very loud visitors, ” Will you please turn off the tv and be a little quieter please, it is only 5: 25am and we don’t disturb anyone least of all Rosemarie {my wife}. A silence came as the tv stopped. Two stunned women looked back then after a minute or two Kerry spoke. “We’re sorry but we thought you & Rosemarie were both very liberated & relaxed, we feel great being able to get up and ‘get-into’ the day without clothes or restriction?” I answered calmly, ” By all means be liberated, what ever that is, be naked 24/7 if you are happier that way, but please before 8:00am just respect our choice of quietness, respect our neighbours early morning & then just enjoy your day!”

After that we all got along fine, we enjoyed their visit, they really made the best of it, and on Saturday after they dressed to leave at 9:30am  Kerry hugged us both & offered us a week at their home. With a cheeky smile she said ” We like singing & happy early mornings though !”

  1. It’s a beautiful morning, ahh
    I think I’ll go outside a while and just smile
    Just take in some clean fresh air, boy
    Ain’t no sense in staying inside
    If the weather’s fine and you got the time
    It’s your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day
    Either way, it’s a beautiful morning, ahh
    Each bird keeps singing his own song, so long
    I’ve got to be on my way now
    Ain’t no fun just hanging around
    I’ve got to cover ground, you couldn’t keep me down
    It just ain’t no good if the sun shines
    When you’re still inside
    Shouldn’t hide, still inside, shouldn’t hide
    Ahh, oh
    (Shouldn’t hide)
    Ah, ah, oh
    (Do, do, waa, do, do, waa)
    There will be children with robins and flowers
    Sunshine caresses each new waking hour
    Seems to me that the people keep seeing
    More and more each day, gotta say, lead the way
    It’s okay, Wednesday, Thursday, it’s okay
    Monday, Wednesday, Friday, weekday, ah, ah, ohh
    (Do, do, waa)
    Ah, ah, oh, oh
    (Do, do, aah)
    Woo, ooh, ooh, oh, oh
    Oh, ah, wo, do, waa
    Ohh, oh, oh, oh
