The holiday is over.

Nick Nolte -- then and now

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

for a nice day (but very hot) of food and fellowship with some of my recovery peeps at Houston's biggest park.  

that I have the freedom to do things differently than I did during my drinking days.  And I take advantage of those freedoms.

that I got to spend 7 hours at a car show on Sunday -- and I didn't get sunburned!

that no animals were harmed in the typing of this post

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
- John Quincy Adams

The picnic sounds wonderful. We only have one once a year. Maybe that was your annual picnic? It seems like your group does a lot of stuff and is very healthy and strong.

Love that quote - I watched a great documentary series about him after visiting Boston many times and seeing stuff about him. A man who without a doubt shaped the USA as it developed. I must remember that quote at some point when needed... it does point to the fact we can all be leaders, it isn't down to rank and prestige... now there's an AA twist on it too... :-)

Poor old Nick. The years have not been kind.
The picnic sounds great.
