Expansion


Before my hair turned gray, I was a blond. The more time I spent in the sun, the blond-er my hair became.

We rarely get snow down in Houston.


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thaAnkful

that my Mom was OK after choking on some oral gauze

that I get to work the coffee bar at Lambda for a few shifts while Sonny is recuperating from by-pass surgery

that I got to listen to the AA story of a good friend; told well with a lot of honesty

that my sponsor has me doing something very uncomfortable (for me) for a reason (I'll expand on this soon)

for a great time at The Astros game with Don K.

that my former boyfriend and Angel who coerced me into the rooms of AA -- Hayden, who lives in Trinidad -- may be coming for a visit in a few weeks; stay tuned

to welcome Jonathan -- My Life in Tampa. Drop by and say howdy!

that I have come up with the appropriate punishment for Mel Gibson -- he will spend 6 months in Tel Aviv teaching teenagers the ills and wrongs of driving while under the influence of alcohol and drugs
