On At Sunrise, Noon & Dusk: Good times to pray

It's snowy, blow-y and overcast today, but last week I saw the sun -- at surise, noon, and dusk. Good times to pray, by the way. -gw
While getting brakes done on the car bright and early at the car dealer's...
Hiking with a colleague and her dog during the noon hour in the forest across from my work...
Just before my last therapy appointment of the day with a client and  family who live in the country...
The daily obligatory prayers are three in number. … The believer is entirely free to choose any one of these three prayers, but is under the obligation of reciting one of them, and in accordance with any specific directions with which they may be accompanied.”
-- from a letter written on behalf of Shoghi Effendi
"By `morning,' `noon' and `evening,' mentioned in connection with the Obligatory Prayers, is meant respectively the intervals between sunrise and noon, between noon and sunset, and from sunset till two hours after sunset."
-- Synopsis and Codification of the Kitab-i-Aqdas, p. 36
