4AM is a terrible time to wake up. It's several hours before the sun comes up. The house is quiet and you try to move about a stealthy and possible so as to not wake anyone else. Even the coffee pot seems extremely loud but there is a limit to just how quiet you can be verses your need for caffeine. An infomercial is on the television touting the reasons you need to buy a complete collection of hits from rock and roll's early years. Hearing songs that were hits 50 years ago just reminds me of how fast life has gone by. Last night was the 2nd night of corralling the pullets that I was letting free range. All but two had gone back into the cage on their own. As I attempted to herd the truants four more exit. Back and forth this continued until I decided that I was not accomplishing a thing. I walked away and stood off to one side for 5 minutes and everyone went inside. If I had waited a little closer to dark they would have put themselves up without my interference.
