    I'm addicted to pens and writing implements. Appreciate them as much as life itself.
    Where would humanity be without writing?

    Backpacks - my go-to for schlepping books, computer etc - couldn't go without. :)
    Also wonderful memories of camping treks in wilderness.

    I’m late and most of the good answers are taken. I’ll add the alarm clock. I’m baffled for years people were able to wake up on time without something like an alarm clock. I’m a morning person, but I rely on my alarm clock.

    I love your answer.

    I used to have a radio alarm clock that gave me soft classical music for half an hour before the alarm which let me wake up gently but always on time

    My husband refuses to let me use an alarm because he can't bear the sound.

    Now I rely on the birdsong that starts an hour before sunrise.

    (A neighbour's rooster crows three hours before sunrise - but that's a little too early. :) ) This post was edited by bookworm at September 21, 2018 2:42 PM MDT

    Yes...the robins wake me in the mornings. They have gone North though, but should be passing through on their way South soon.

    Such a beautiful warbling-trilling sound! :)

    Do they gather to grab your grubs and worms when you are gardening?
