I'd take the time to stop in at an Autozone, or PEP boys, and ask about a freescan for trouble codes, and see what comes up. May be sensor on it's way out, this will hopefully confirm my suspicions, and hopefully narrow it down to 1 instead of 3 possibles.

if this happened to me ,after making sure that the automatic choke was working ,i would pull a couple of spark plugs out first thing in the morning before startup ,and check to see if there was any condensation on the plugs.....if so then the problem gets interesting,

SOURCE: engine running problems
That is the classic sign of a faulty electrical control component and the problem could be that the ignition module on the side of the distributor is most likely faulty, and when the ignition module gets too hot the engine will mis-fire and can even stop running. Also, remove the distributor cap and inspect the connector from the pick-up coil/stator where the ignition module connects to it, and if the connector is dark or burnt looking then also replace the pick-up coil/stator or the entire distributor. Be sure to check that the spark plugs have not been carbon fouled from the engine mis-firing. Here are some images to assist you.
Also, there is the possibility that there might be a fault with the fuel pump, and a fuel pressure gauge would be the best way to determine if the fuel pump is faulty, and the ECU (Engine Control Unit) might be faulty. However, the symptoms that you describe seem to be more that of the ignition module.
