hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy

At Lambda Center, sober anniversaries are celebrated on the last Saturday of each month. Lambda provides a cake for all who wish to partake.
This was the cake for April.
This was also my attempt to consume the first piece.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I have learned how to "trick" my Mom into getting a little bit of exercise when I go visit her (hehe); she resists doing much of anything that requires getting out of bed

for another day of being alcohol and nicotine free -- I am still absolutely incredulous that this is really me!!

for another day of being chaos and insanity free

that after 877 days of operating this blog, I will get my 100,000th hit some time today - -this being my 1,451st post (but who's counting?)

It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get back up.

You're a good man for tricking your mom into some exercise, she's very fortunate to have you!
