      Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

      Slo, I'm so sorry you have to go thru the surgery again, but it was not your fault that you fell for goodness sake! You didn't 'blow it', you had an accident. Live and learn tho. No airplane acrobatics for you this next time!

      Yay Rava! You finally made it! I remember the bitter sweet moment on my last day of walking out to my car after work for the last time. My two longest time friends and colleagues walked out with me and in that moment the reality finally hit and I teared up. But somewhere during the drive home I started looking forward again. Retirement is definitely the best job ever!

      24 more please and thank you.

      Stupid things we do while drinking. In the old days that could've been made in to a MWO thread! I guess number one for me would be driving. I never combined while drinking while under the influence...heck, I couldn't do that stone cold sober! But I did mow the lawn on a riding mower more than once...

      If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

      Rava, your last day!!!! You got this.

      Dang, Slo. So sorry to hear about another surgery. Finally getting some relief will be awesome tho.

      Played cards with our AZ friends until 10p last night. Girls won! Yay! Boys were drinking, we may have had a sober leg up.

      I'll take another 24, please and thank you!

      Another 24 hours please & thank you.

      Rava, happy last day of work! Retirement is what you make it - have a blast!!

      Today’s quote is spot on. Too often I saw people who pretended to be interested in something but never got around to doing what was needed. I couldn’t help but think of the difference between contributing and commitment. It was compared to a breakfast of ham and eggs - the hen contributed, the pig committed!

      We had 3 new faces at our Parkinson support group yesterday, nice to see!

      I’m considering a new volunteer opportunity. I read that a national organization is looking for business mentors for former military members who are transitioning/ have transitioned from military service to their own business. It sounds interesting and rewarding. I’ll speak with the administrators of the program next week to see if we’re a match.

      Have a great af Friday everyone!

      QW
      I try to be the person my best little buddy thinks I am.

      Hopefully your last day on the job was one that will leave you with fond memories @Rava! You'll notice I didn't say last day of work because we all know a woman's work is never done! lol

      Do you know when the surgery will happen @Slo? It's amazing how a few seconds can create such painful and lasting results. You'll be good as new in no time and more the wiser to watch how you use the knee.

      I know @dill, the amount of times I ran the combine and the air seeding equipment while under the influence is not something I'm not especially proud of! Thankfully I never caused any damage to equipment or people back then.

      I think today's quote really sums up trying to get and stay sober. It takes 100% commitment all the time...

      Quitting and staying quit isnít easy, itís learning a whole new way of thinking. Itís accepting a new way of life, and not just accepting it, embracing it...
      Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. Just get through today. Tomorrow will look after itself when it becomes today, because today is all we have to think about.
      Friendship is not about how many friends you have or who you've known the longest. It's about who walked into your life, said "I'm here for you", and proved it.

      Saturday quote:

      24/7/365

      I traveled to Minnesota today with my sister to visit our friend & her family for the weekend, and I saw this quote on a billboard several times. Not sure why the billboard, but I know what it means regarding my sobriety: it has to be practiced 24/7/365 in order to be successful!

      Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

      Good morning and thanks for all the good wishes! Since this is our support group I am coming here to be completely honest. My coworkers did not know that I struggled with alcohol. I never made it a thing in my work. They gave me a gift basket with many fun things including 2 small shots of fireball whiskey. To make a long story short, when I got home, I was emotionally drained and completely exhausted. (Not making excuses here). I drank them both and went to bed. I just got up after 12 hours of sleep. I am sorry that I did that but do not want to go back to that lifestyle. I know I made a huge mistake but I am moving on and dont want to dwell on it. Thanks for listening and for all your support. Today is filled with busy work but not drinking....I will take 24 for me please!

      Re: ~cattleman cafe~ & another 24...

      Thanks for a week of really good quotes, Slo. Today's could be our motto here! In fact maybe we should have a sign made and hung over the door of the cafť with that on it!

      QW, I hope that volunteer opportunity turns out to be a good fit for you. It sounds like a really wonderful service and one that you would be particularly suited for!

      Cowboy, you were definitely being watched over and kept safe back then. Things could easily have gone another way. Same with me and my lawn mowing. I hope I didn't give the impression I was remembering that with fondness or pride! Quite the opposite.

      Rava, no need to dwell on it. Just stick with us. And, welcome to the free world!! You will love retirement. Congrats!

      Today is the Christmas Bazaar held by the hospital volunteer group I belong to. I must get my homemade double chocolate chunk over there this morning.

      24 more for all of us here, please and thank you.

      A snowy morning with a nice blanket of it dumped on us through the night. Temps are dropping, sitting at -8C (16F) right now...

      In the past 24 hours, these people have signed in for 24 hours of sobriety:
