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

    @Rava, one thing about a slip, it is a good reminder why we quit in the first place! The point is, you came right back here and didn't spiral. Today is a new day!

    Thanks for a week of great quotes, @Slo. I'll take another 24, please and thank you!

    24/7/365, simple, but also complex.... That simple statement can mean so many thing to so many people, but as you said @Slo, it means our watch over our sobriety. Getting and staying sober isn't easy, and it takes a lifelong commitment. And any commitment that serious isn't an easy undertaking. But it can be done. And as @Rava said, this is our support group, and we're here 24/7/365 for each other! You have a whole new life ahead of you @Rava, we'll all try and help you make it a sober one!

    For sure a week of great quotes @Slo, thank you!

    And yes @dill, I'm going to start looking for a sign or something like that to hang above the door, great idea!

    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.

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

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    We thoroughly enjoyed the aerospace museum yesterday, a highlight was learning about the restoration of a WW2 Hawker Hurricane fighter plane. One of the people involved spoke for about 45 minutes about the challenges of assembling the plane from hundreds of pieces that were unlabelled.
    The plane was recently transported by flatbed truck from Westaskiwin to Calgary on the QE 2 highway, about a 3 hour drive. All southbound lanes were blocked by the truck and their maximum speed was much less than what traffic usually does on the highway, affectionately known as the QE 2 500. The truck driver who moves large loads for a living has been subjected to honking horns, coffee cups thrown at him, middle finger gestures, etc but not this time. And when they pulled over to let traffic pass, drivers didn’t. Very classy, well done Albertans!

    Cowboy, we’re getting a taste of winter today as well. It’s hard to take after yesterday when it was 12C.

    Have a great af Saturday everyone! 24/7/365

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

    Good morning Cafe. Still recovering from my emotional rollercoaster of retirement. No drinking since that stupid slip up. Last night I actually cleared out my weekly 5 am alarm. Today we fly to Florida for 2 weeks. So definitely looking forward to moving on in a positive way. Its 35 degrees here right now. I decided to groom my own little dog to save money in retirement. Needless to say he looks like the kid in school with the crooked bangs. It will have to do for now. Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday. My next post will be from the condo. Another 24 for me please and thanks.

    Can any of you can remember the song by James Taylor, "Carolina in my Mind". Well after reading your post @Rava I got that song in my head but with the substitution of "Rava's condo in my Mind". What a great way to start your new adventure!

    I saved some cookies @Jude58 and we will have them after breakfast in the Cafť!

    Having a great time with our granddaughter. She requested my Chicken and Dumplings for dinner. I just happened to roast a hen the other day and have lots of left overs, so how could I say no?!

    24 more glorious hours of freedom for all of us please.
    Dill

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

    Great quote, ABC.

    Rava, enjoy the condo and the next two weeks. Great idea to get away!

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

    I'd better get breakfast out so that we can all enjoy Dill's double chocolate chunk!
