Goodness (is) Gracious!




How I spent my Sunday afternoon. A small get-together of Riviera owners. Mine is the red/black one.
On the top picture, from left to right, they are 1963, 64, 64, 65, 66 and 1982 Riviera's.

for the Houston Roundup (AA convention) which happens over the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend. Their largest fundraiser was Saturday night, a Drag Auction. The costumes are auctioned off after each performance. It was very entertaining and raised over $4000.

that I went to see my friend Rodney W in a stage play as he expands his acting career.

for fellowship before and after meetings; it's essential to my recovery and probably yours too

that I get to meet more people outside the program (normies) through my car obsession hobby

It is a funny thing about life: If you refuse to accept anything but the best you very often get it.

Red is my favorite car color too! I wish I could have seen the auction. I'll bet it was a hoot!

Have you been hanging out with those cool people in Denver you bought your caddie from?

I settled for so long I didn't know anything else. Now, what I get automatically, is superior to what I used to get when I struggled to make it the best.

Definitely like your car the best. And I love gay roundups. We have a relatively young one here in Atlanta; I'm not sure which is more fun, the fundraising events or the roundup itself. Great blog!

I accept the best and very often get it, but so far no cigars--or Rivieras

My dad used to sell buicks when I was little. The Riv is still my favorite model... He had some beautiful demos.

Nice cars. The car thing sounds like a great hobby. And it is good to meet people outside the program, especially when equipped with the 12 steps.
