    The phrase “get your nap out” is interesting but what I find most intriguing is that even as young ladies, Chitter and Chatter are still content to be so close to one another- just like kittens and puppies as RB noted. My two youngest boys, until they were 10-12 years old would take naps together like that. It warmed my heart every time I saw it.

    Couch naps are THE best! My fondest memories are of listening to my parents talk while falling to sleep (napping) on the living room couch. Everyday after school…from 3:30 -4.

    My lunchtime at work is a great time to get my “power nap” out. Fifteen minutes or so and I’m good to go.

    Kittens and puppies almost always sleep in a jumble like that. ;o)
    God bless.

    My grandma used to call diapers nappies. I looked it up and diapers are called nappies but only in Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand. I don’t know how she picked up the word.

    Love the picture of the napping girls trying to press the nap out of your sofa fabric!
    Nothing like 40 winks, but if I can’t catch but 30 when my body rhythm needs 40, then look out! My nappy mood turns nap less!
    Thanks Tipper,
    PS…Reminds of trying to get a baby back to sleep, that didn’t get its nap out! Been there done that! Sooo, please don’t wake the baby!

    Ain’t that a gorgeous sight? Them
    two touching each other and needing
    a nap. I recon they’re warm enough
    but if needed, Chatter could throw
    that brown fuzzy, wuzzy over them.

    If I don’t “get my nap out” I feel awful. Mama always said babies & little kids were cranky the rest of the day if they “didn’t get their nap out”.

    I have an extremely comfortable recliner where-in lives a Nap Monster. It gets me a couple of times a day.

    I’ve noticed that life is much like the Bell Curve, when we were young we had to get our nap then we grew older and everyone thought it terrible if you were caught napping and now that I’m older I require my nap almost daily.

    Well Tipper, it is alright to get your nap out on the sofa. BUT BEHIND A STEERING WHEEL IS NOT THE PLACE! I live with a fellow who ONCE ran a highway patrol off the road! The officer was chasing a drunk driver but he turned around and came back to STOP you know who! He made him walk the line, gave him a lecture and let him by. Eva Nell

    Nothing better than a nap to give a senior more energy to cook dinner. I’m lucky, I have a kitty who likes to curl up sometimes and nap next to me. The girls napping looks like a good scrapbook photo.

    There was a time when I only got a nap on Sunday afternoon. Now that I’m retired I try to get at one nap every day. Some days I get one in the AM and one in the afternoon.

    If I get caught napping, they always ask if I’m sick. Napping just wasn’t allowed when I was growing up. I’ve heard Mom call nappers “that old sorry thing” or worse.
    My friend takes a nap when she gets home from work every day. She never sleeps more than 20 minutes and claims she could run a marathon when she gets up.

    I heard that from my mother when I was growing up. I suppose she said I ‘didn’t get my nap out’ when I stumbled around grumpy with little slitty cat eyes.

    Oh, my goodness! Not getting a nap out is worse than not taking one at all.

    When one is young, it is not unusual to curl up anywhere and nap. Those were the days! If I tried that now I fear it would take me most of the day to get my bones out of the fetal position. Great photo, of those busy young ladies taking a much needed nap.
