Same here John, I will very rarely sleep much more than that. I put it down to working night-duty for over 10 years.

never usually go to bed before 12 midnight, my dog has me up at 7am, so not bad, sometimes waken through the night so not too bad for being 85 on the 4th of July

Usually 8 hours or more, but often disturbed through the night. Think the under-active thyroid accounts for that. :)

Never know from one night to another.
Odd times want a pee ... I ignore that and go back to sleep. It that's stops that habit from starting like it did 20 years ago.
When down I go bed real early, even at 7. till I wake up next day at say 12.
Better now, I get average 8 hours a night mostly.

Its a pigeon thing John
5-6 hours if I'm lucky old brain cells getting excited about racing season
The neighbours accept my birds can be out before some of them finish partying lol
Old joiner I worked with said don't spend to much time in your bed son
Loads of people die in bed so stay out of it and live long

Same for me Michael I seldom sleep more than 5 hours.Ihavenot eaten breakfast for 50 years but survive on copious amounts of coffee..Like theFifer I will not see 85 again and I find my biggest problem is catching pigeons manual dexterity decreases with old age.
