A Spoonful of Gratitude


I suppose I might have used this photo on hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy, but since I am not included in the picture ...


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a 6:30am meeting about Honesty and a noon meeting on Step 3 yesterday -- a great pair of topics for a Monday (and the other 6 days too)

for lunch (chicken-fried steak, of course) with my sponsor and about 7 other recovering persons

that I now have operational Christmas lights after hiring an electrician to determine that nothing was wrong except for a faulty light bulb -- I mentioned already that my thinking has been on the stupid side lately? At least I had some other work he could do whilst here.

that Jonathan (my life in tampa) celebrated his 100th sober day AND has now started painting (I relate to this)

that I ran across Mary Poppins while channel surfing last night -- and watched it!
I was 10 years old when the movie premiered in 1964 -- an age of innocence. I must have seen it a dozen times; my uncle was a film projectionist at a drive-in theatre. I do believe that it's been 40 years! since I last viewed it, although it had to share my viewing eyes with Marche de l'empereur, La (March of the Penguins) last night.

If I won't be myself, who will?
-Alfred Hitchcock

That is a dog! He needs to go to Victoria's Secret with the Britster to get some panties!

Are you sure it's a dog? I'm not sure about willie either but yes panties are good.

There was a cop in Los Angeles whose wife outed him about singing
"washing my willie" while taking a shower. I think he's a widower now.

I think there is something wrong when one cannot distinguish whether the beast in question is a cat or a dog.

Britney and Lindsey Lohan should be so subtle.

Brilliant quote!!!
