not just dreaming ...



my idea of a real snowmobile


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I get to watch myself become a different person from the inside

that this Saturday, for an hour, it's all about me. I relate what it was like, what happened and what it's like now. The last part is very much different than the last time I told my story, 2 years ago. And I get to do it on the district level (pride & ego).

for a nice visit with Angela at Starbuck's

that I am in the early planning stages of a trip to Trinidad & Tobago (CLICK FOR PIX) -- it's a one day business trip and 5 or 6 day pleasure trip to be with Hayden and enjoy the other sites (beach) -- if anyone wants to join us or meet us there, let me know -- a few friends from my AA center are planning to go and we can all make it One Big Sober Party

for the following excerpt from Shannon's blog ...
My friends A and C went back out. I am so scared for them. A told me, she knows why, she said, she stopped going to meetings and calling people, and when she was in a bar a few weeks ago (which they never go to bars) and she had this urge like she never felt before, the urge to drink, and she felt like she had to unleash it. She said she convinced her husband it was ok, and then after she did, he did too. That is how fast it can happen. I hear this in meetings all the time when people go back out, and then come back to meetings. They always say, that they stopped going to meetings, stopped talking to their sponsor and friends, they stopped reading the literature, and finally they stopped praying. They go back out. And with in a short time, they end up worse than they were to begin with.
Nuff said.

that tomorrow is hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy - hope to see ya there

It IS a great trip! Hope Malaysia will be on your agenda one of these days.

It's interesting how our top table shares change over time - how some things come to the fore and how things which once seemed important don't seem as vital as they used to. If you get my drift.

Hope it goes well.

I expect a postcard from T&T, or gratuitous beach shots at the very least.
