The Old and the New







I attended a car show over the weekend about one hour west of Houston. I went with the Buick club to which I belong and we drove there in a convoy down the highway. That was fun. I pulled up the rear of the procession in my '65 Riviera, following a beautiful 1959 pink Buick Lesabre. The 2 cars above were amongst my favorites at the show. The yellow 1949 Packard convertible and a 1953 Hudson Hornet. Both are in mint condition. Wow!




todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

to have heard my friend Larry H. relate his story of alcoholism; his presentation had a very good flow to it, more so than most

that I'm learning (a little bit at a time) to adjust to the world around me

for the recovery fellowship I participate in

that I've discovered a hobby outside of AA that I really enjoy (it took 6 years for this to happen)


Self-discipline is when your conscience tells you to do something and you don't talk back.

Those cars are so beautiful..and with soul!! On a side note..self discipline was a foreign concept to me before Alanon. I'm much better now!

Namaste

I love the discipline quote - it's where I falter most

Thanks for the gratitude and pictures of the car show. Sounds like fun. Nothing like replacing one passion with another one, even if it did take a while!

I'm so excited to be here!
I'm in lust with both of those cars.

It's great to have a hobby. I have several of them that keep me busy and my mind off myself.
