Surprise ...



todAAy i AAM grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I don't need to look for any reason to drink. Nothing, absolutely nothing, will get better if I drink.

for integrity, which begins at home

that my friend, Mary Christine, celebrates 25 consecutive years of living without alcohol today!

that I can slow myself down when I'm under the weather; my instinct is to just keep attacking life

that I should have a nice weekend, punctuated by a speaker meeting in Austin tomorrow night (I get to be the speaker!)

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Oh, I hope you get to feeling better by tomorrow night!

You'll drive anywhere for an audience, won't you?

I'd start looking for a ticket to Austin, but I'm going to the beach tomorrow. I'll name a sand castle after you.

p.s. I've decided that 1953 was a beautiful model year for Cadillac. Would you please buy one of those next?

I am on slow today even though the weather is fine. Hope that you have a good day. Your weekend sounds good. I'm sure that the speaker meeting will be entertaining because of the speaker. I've heard that he is good.
