Pride & Awareness

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I KNOW I must practice Step 6 throughout every day

that I am aware of so many more things around me these days

that I am driving the convertible with Mr & Miss Lambda Center in the Gay Pride Parade tomorrow night; there are typically 200K-300K people (many straight families) lining the parade route

for another (hopefully) productive meeting with the builder/contractor of the new house. I called my builder's agent a f_ _ king cu_ t and had to make a little apology. I won't call him that again (even though it's a very apt description). LOL

that I'm not in denial (I don't think)

that I'm attending the Astros-Red Sox baseball game tonight; it's the first ever meeting between those 2 teams. Last night, I called our friend JJ (click here) to let her know I would be there. I'll wave at ya, JJ!!

There are only two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings.

It's probably okay that you called the agent a f__king cu_t as long as you didn't fill in the blanks. I think I'd be fine if someone called me F King Cut.

The parade sounds like fun!!! Are you going to throw candy to the kids? Or little airline bottles of booze?

Hang in there, kiddo! You'll be in your new home soon.

Dear dAAve,

I know our mild-mannered Dave didn't go there?!

Well, the amends are the thing. I hope all is forgiven on both sides and that your home will be ready very soon.

I know you'll enjoy your Astro's game.

Love you

I DID NOT make an amends to that agent. An amends means that I will do my best not to repeat that behavior. Under the same circumstances, I might repeat that comment. I only apologized for saying what I said.

Have fun at Pride. You wearing a chauffer's hat?

Hope that all the house issues get ironed out and you get moved in. Nothing worse than dealing with builders/contractors/real estate agents IMO.

And I will be right behind you in the Parade in my truck with at least 4 people in it.
