"I feel free"

A few of the beauties at a Buick Club picnic yesterday.

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for the Lois Wilson Story last night on the telly; I thought it was really more about Bill, but I enjoyed it

for the passing of another Lambda Center birthday night

that I got to see a friend who moved away about 3 years ago; he's in Houston visiting for a few days from Hawaii

that we have a spare bedroom that another ex-Lambda friend will be using for 2 days while visiting here from NYC

that I get to visit with my therapist today - we haven't talked in over 3 months (because I have not really needed it). Today, we'll just do a life update.

In prosperity, our friends know us; in adversity, we know our friends.

Movie: All the women waiting in their lined-up cars, waiting for their alcoholic men.

Back when, we did lots of "carrying the bodies" to AA meetings. Now we buy them a bike. I liked the other way better

I thought that movie was more about Bill too, and I was disappointed by that.

I thought the movie showed how much his alcoholism affected her. It was about her IMO because she was driving herself crazy around his drinking. That's the Al-Anon who isn't in recovery. The recitation of the 12 steps was moving.

Way back when cars were built to last.

In 1959 my Mother had a 1956 Buick Super that was the same color as the shown '56 Roadmaster Convertible. The 1973 Buick convertible looks like a Centurion. I had a '73 Buick Centurion 455 two door with black interior. I bought it at the height of the first gas crisis in j1974, it was new, listed at 6100.00 and I paid 3900.00 for it. Loved that car. Had it for 10 years.
I also saw the Lois Wilson Story. To me there was more AA than Al-anon. Emjpyued it though.

Loved the scene when the women marched in past the men and they all stopped to look.
