Just the facts

working the membership desk yesterday at one of the finest GLBT recovery centers in the world,

Lambda Center - Houston

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I am a single, middle-aged, gay male who is an alcoholic-in-recovery and I am happy about all that stuff

that I'm anal-retentive and obsessive-compulsive and can handle it

for a greater daily awareness of my shortcomings and the desire not to participate in them

that I'm open-minded and willing to change (when necessary)

that I must remain teachable in recovery or else I'll become unreachable

A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow. -Charlotte Bronte

daave - this is the earliest you will probably ever hear from me.
Man it's the middle of the night.
Really like your last gratitude
on today's list.
A quote from page 31 of August's Grapevine "You've never been sober today before."
Enjoy your day.

This is an adorable photo of you!

Agreed about the picture of you.
Sadly, this city's Lamba Center closed down over a decade ago -- no $$, no support.
