Scott is SIX !!!!!!


Today, my friend SCOTT W celebrates his sixth consecutive year of remaining sober. But Scott's not just sober, he's well into his recovery from alcohol and the thinking that goes with drinking way too much.
Drop by and say howdy to SCOTT W, (click here) whose picture I have modified to protect his innocence anonymity.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for those I've gotten to know in sobriety who are still there; I realize that the longer I stay sober, the fewer will be around who were here when I got here

that I try to pace myself through life rather than run as fast as I can (usually)

that I've always lived by the mantra that I'd rather work smart than hard (this works for me, but not for others, apparently)

that we read the story on page 407 of the 4th edition of the Big Book yesterday -- I'll wait until tomorrow to comment on the good stuff


Nothing makes you like other human beings so much as doing things for them.
- Zora Neale Hurston

I burst out laughing Daffyd! You are such a nut. Thanks for being there when I got there and thanks for sticking around. You are the odd buffer sometimes and I love you.

thanks for the reminder about scotty!
I am glad you both still are around...even though I know you only through blogging, I remember when you were both a year or so!

I also liked the reminder to keep pace rather than run through life... lol I still tend to do that so I need reminders

have a great day

Thanks for reminding me to pace myself. It's not always something I remember to do.
