hAAlf nAAked thursdAAy


With the enactment of a new Houston city ordinance, Lambda Center is now a non-smoking facility.

Sure glad I stopped smoking when I did. It's just one less thing I have to deal with.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that, for me, reality comes with responsibility

that all problems have solutions

that many solutions don't happen the way I want or envision

for good ideas from my therapist

for Hayden's support at meetings

for all the comments left here yeterday by Pam, Mary Christine, Scott W, Shannon, las, peanut, lisa, drew's sis, anonymous, syd, johno, kathy lynne and tab

that I may get a break on my health/medical insurance policy now because of stopping smoking

for memories of watching The Flintstone's when I was about 6 years old (1960) and that Walt Disney brought programs to me in living color

To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end in life.

I am hearing you on the "solutions don't happen the way I want or envision". Sometimes I feel like a little kid, waiting to see how God is going to work out a particular need in my life. Sometimes I'm very pleasantly surprised, and sometimes I pout.

Scott W said...

Spinoza always put that spin on things.

HI Daave, happy be-lated birthday. That is hard on some folks. Man we had a big contreversy when Pierce County became non smoking, out hall was one of the lasts who allowed smoking, and the group was so divided, smokers vs the non smokers... it was bleeped up
I hope it goes good for you all there
have a great night
