Looking back




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the limitless ways to stay connected to my HP

for some really good results from acting as if

that the topic of fellowship & friendships in Sunday night's AA meeting; this usually triggers me into self-pity as I realize I have so few real close friends in my life. I have hundreds of acquaintances but no one I hang out with.

that I'm really only about half my chronological age

for the life and laughs of George Carlin

that with a whole lot of luck and everything happening as scheduled, we'll close on the new house next Tuesday (July 1)

that Hayden and I co-exist well in a hotel room together in spite of our differences. We are wired completely opposite as far as awake vs sleep hours. He's a night person and I'm a morning person.

I feel the same way about "close" friends. It seems that all my "together till we die friends" have died.
I loved George :(

George went into the Air Force in 1954. You and I know what we were doing that year!

I think I'm going to say all of George's banned words all day. :-)

Mary Mary Quite Contrary - didn't like George Carlin. I wonder how he will feel when he meets his maker - who he denied all his life.

Glad that your closing is soon and you won't have to be any more extended in Extended Stay.

Hmmmmmmmmmm. I consider you a close friend. Georgie Porgie puddin and pie.
Grabbed his heart and had to die.
He was an icon of comedy.
