The naps will come, don't force it Bud-ee. First work on your stayin' up as late as you darn want to. We drift late sometimes. OK we drift till pretty much dawn the next day sometimes, but who's gonna tell us we can't? Then if we wake up too early, like before Noon even rolls around, we just play it by ear, and if one of us feels a bit sleepy the other shows their support by helping out with FULL Afternoon Nap Support. Sometimes we both stay awake the entire afternoon, and hey no harm, no foul. Tivo or equivalent really helps with the TV watching at the hour of your choice no matter what it happens to be. If we just had an Irish Wolfhound size doggie door we'd have even LONGER naps, but the three just don't permit it.
Bottom line: Bud! Don't rush it. It will come to you. You are FREE! Enjoy the ride.
It's about the music
