just visiting

men can fix anything!

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for those who suit up and show up; especially when they announce it beforehand and then follow through

that my friend Todd celebrates 365 days of sobriety today. I got to meet Todd twice when visitng NYC. He's a sweet as they come.

for a nice visit with my sister and her significant other yesterday in rural Texas

for the 5 years that Mary Christine wrote about her experience, strength and hope

that I met 5 old high school friends last night at a small bar near our old school. We found each other on Facebook and decided to get together. I had not seen any of them in 38 years. I'm so glad I have not aged as much as they have.

Never miss a chance to keep your mouth shut.

I wonder if aging is genetic. Some people just age gracefully and others, well....they just age. Glad that you are aging well.

There's something suggestive about that photo! I guess the same men fixin' are the same men cleanin'.

Your word verification is 'wishen', as in 'wishing and hoping' but I can't remember any more words of the song. I don't think I do any more wishen, I either do it or accept not doing it! Sorry for the random thoughts
