Got Green?

Danny Boy - sung by a young Irishman named Declan Galbraith




One of my favorite Irish hymns.

In the 6:30am meeting I attend each weekday, we read a few pages in the Big Book every Tuesday. We finished the entire book for the 4th time (since Jan '04) yesterday. I really like the fact that someone goes around printing new words, sentences and paragraphs from time to time and inserting those additions without any of us seeing them do it. I suppose they put those same additions in your book too, eh?

that I held my tongue and kept my composure yesterday when a bank V.P. got a bit uppity with me and tried to force an unwanted financial product on me. After I informed him that I could take my dollars to the bank next door, he settled down. Young kids these days.

that I've now been alive for 56 years; 10 years longer than I thought I'd live

Is it really your birfday? Yippee!

There's a gremlin that keeps inserting new stuff in my Big Book, too. Very mysterious.

Have a happy birthday Dave. I'm glad that you are alive and have outlived what you thought was your destiny.

Those uppity bank people are something else. I wonder if they dream of stimulus $$ and big bonuses.
