just between you and me...

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I was reminded of Tradition 3 -- the only requirement for membership to AA is a desire to stop drinking. A recovery friend says that AA could not have lowered its standards any farther.

that it was pretty easy for me to admit that I am an alcoholic. It was much more difficult for me to admit that alcohol was the cause of so many of my problems. Now I realize that it wasn't even the alcohol. It's the alcoholism.

for another blast of winter down here in the deep south; the temperature Monday morning at 9am was 76°, by noon it was 55°

that I have the privelege of voting today

for the 2-hour special on The Royal Family. I have always been rather fascinated by the pomp and arrogance of that family.

Have fun voting. One precinct here ran out of Democratic ballots.

I can't wait until today's election is over. It may eliminate a source of irritation to me.

I'm hoping for some more cold days before the heat comes in. It's supposed to be in the upper 70's here today. Glad that you are voting.
