Big Pig and Bye Bye


In this photo released by Melynne Stone, Jamison Stone, 11, poses with a wild pig he killed near Delta, Ala., May 3, 2007. Stone's father says the hog weighed a staggering 1,051 pounds and measured 9-feet-4 from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail. If claims of the animal's size are true, it would be larger than ``Hogzilla,'' the huge hog killed in Georgia in 2004. (AP Photo/Melynne Stone)

NOTE: I'm sure you've already seen this photo and story, but I thought I'd post it to get more blog-hits while I'm gone the next few days. LOL


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a very good Step 3 meeting; good stuff to remember before leaving on a trip

for a good workout with my new trainer; I'm not sore though and that concerns me because I was using muscles I have not used in decades

for a first-time-ever decision/commitment to change or at least alter my diet (slowly though, at first)

that I am off to spend a few days with Hayden in the Caribbean. In my shoulder bag are a few books: Alcoholics Anonymous, The Courage to Change and The Language of Letting Go. Hayden lives in a nice home on the side of a hill almost overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The front porch is cozy and breezy. A wonderful place to sit in the early morning and/or late afternoon and read. Quite peaceful.

that I can pack for any trip to any place for any length of time in less than 30 minutes

See y'all about next Thursday -- or so.

A final note before I leave ...

A truck driver was driving along on the freeway. A sign comes up that reads, "Low Bridge Ahead." Before he knows it, the bridge is right ahead of him and he gets stuck under the bridge. Cars are backed up for miles.
Finally, a police car comes up. The cop gets out of his car and walks to the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips and says, "Got stuck, huh?"
The truck driver says, "No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of gas."



... later

Clarity said...

I get into a lather when I have to pack to go anywhere. Then after I pack, I get all nervous and unpack everything, before I pack it again. Well at least that's how it was when I was drinking....

Just think if the pig had been left to go about the rest of his life eating acorns and just being a pig. Hope that you have a good trip.
