a drunk with a conscience ...

todAAy, i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

to do these silly hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy pictures (see below); after 2 months of doing them each week, it takes some imagination to come up with something new (that I'm willing to put on the internet)

to hear a familiar story (it wasn't mine) at the Wednesday Speaker meeting, although I had never heard his story before

for a cool front entering Houston this morning to relieve us from record-breaking heat

that I've never been a mean person even though I have been mean

for Steps 8, 9 & 10

for Tradition 7 of Alcoholics Anonymous; it can take on many other symbolic meanings

that my Mom is still functional

that I have been able to talk a little bit about my excuses for isolating

that I don't have to go off the deep end when someone else does

for the 8 others who went for a great lunch yesterday (thanks D.R.)

that Chester's dad has a new challenge

He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he who loses his courage loses all.
-Miguel de Cervantes
