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

    5:51 am in Vegas I won't be drinking today Rava, I'm not scared of traveling I just want to be able to enjoy myself when I do go and not have the mask police up my arse the whole trip+we usually go to California and they're really strict down there from what I've heard, also I haven't gone to see my extended family just cuz my dad has terrible lungs from chain-smoking all his life and I'd hate to take anything up there, I'm glad you've gotten out this year and yes I think me not having my vacay's is part of the reason I do feel a low grade depression now, Dill, hubs has a peanut butter sandwich every night too haha! Wishing everyone a happy AF day here!
    I have too much shit to do today and tomorrow to drink

    I'm taking care of the "tomorrow me"
    Drinkin won't help a damn thing! Will only make me sick for DAYS and that ugly, spacey dumb feeling-no thanks!

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Dill, while checking out Jasper, check out Banff as well. Cowboy, I think I know the spot where you & Bubba got married.

    Our youth justice committee meeting last evening was about a young female charged with assault and assault with a weapon. A few moments of stupidity that could have serious impacts for the rest of her life. If she satisfactorily completes the consequences our committee assigned to her, she will avoid a criminal record.

    Have a great af Wednesday everyone!

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

    54F Heavy rain, the remnants of Hurricane Zeta passing through, could get 3-4 inches.
    Wish the West could get some of this.
    Glad the youth justice exists to give young and dumb kids a second chance. I have a mistake in my past that could have ruined my life, too. I got a second chance, and made the most of it.
    Of course alcohol was involved.
    24 more please

    @Mr Vervill it didn't take too long at all to get the passport. We filled out our renewal form online and printed it out. Then we assembled all the things they required and mailed it in. Here's a link to the page where you can get started: Getting or Renewing a U.S. Passport | USAGov We did our renewal at a time when we were in no hurry so we weren't worried about how long it would take. However, were were surprised that it wasn't but 2-3 weeks later that we had our new passports. Of course, this was in Dec. 2019, before covid. I don't know what it will be like at present.

    Ok QW, I'll look up Banff today. Years ago Mr. D attended a conference held there and he loved it. He took lots of pictures. But that was years ago. That's fantastic that you were able to help that young lady. I hope she takes the opportunity to get and keep herself on track.

    Ginger, I would have made the same choice as you did. It sounds like you are needed where you are and what could be better or more important than that?!

    One thing that I have greatly missed since covid hit is Sunday Mass. I haven't been since March. The churches in our state are allowed to have services now but numbers are limited and I have been hesitant to be in a closed building with others for the extended time like that, even with masks. For a while I watched the online Mass but our priest stopped doing that when they began meeting in person. I heard from my doctor the other day at my well check that her church still does the online so I'm going to see if I can try that this Sunday.

    My daughter made it thru Hurricane Zeta last night. She texted us the whole time. She said it was really eerie when the eye passed over and everything became still. Then it started up again with the wind going in the opposite direction! Her power went out but she was safe.

    24 more please and thank you.

    Donít forget, you can: start late, start over, be unsure, try and fail AND STILL SUCCEED!

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

    Today is going to be a darn good day not to drink!
    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.

    I thought you mentioned Banff when you talked about the get together @Quit wining as it's much closer to you, but Jasper is every bit as beautiful! I've been to both places on a number of occasions and might add that the Jasper golf course is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon @Ginger999!

    Churches here in Veg have re-opened as well @dill with limited seating. Bubba took the MIL a couple of Sunday's ago and she told Bubba it wasn't the same and she didn't want to go back till she could sing in the choir again. With the Covid numbers on the rise again in Alberta, I think that it'll be a ways down the road before anything gets back to close to being normal...

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    The last time I golfed at the Jasper course, on the first hole I hit a great drive and the ball rolled right up to a bull elk lying on the fairway. It was rutting season so I left that ball right where it was and played another. The scenery is amazing and each tee offers a beautiful mountain view. Anyone interested in a game after our mask burning party??

    Mr V, our youth justice committee consists of 10 people and all of us did something stupid when we were younger, the difference is that we didn’t get caught. We do our best to help the young offender see how they could have handled things differently, how they would handle things in similar circumstances in the future. Frequently alcohol or drugs were a factor. A requirement of referral to our program is an admission of guilt and this is a one time deal. Should they re-offend, they will go through the legal system and be dealt with by the courts. The recidivism rate is very low as a result. One of the committee members supervises the young offender until their consequences are complete. Overall, it’s very satisfying work the committee does.

    It looks like COVID is going to be with us for a long time given the increasing numbers of new cases. And amazingly, I heard an ad on radio the other day for a banquet centre saying they were taking bookings for Xmas parties for up to 600! Um, gatherings are currently limited to 15 so not sure how they think they can get away with 600. Covidiots!

    Have a great af Thursday everyone.

    QW, I hope that young lady has an epiphany and turns things around with this chance. Each one of my boys did something stupid that could have been determinantal, if not for a second chance! Awww youth.

    Dill, the lovely thing about online services, you can vertually attend anywhere in the world. The world is your oyster/mass! 🕍

    School day today. Extra animals are settling in nicely. 24 more!

    "Even in the midst of devastation, something within us always points the way to freedom". – Sharon Salzberg

    I can't tell you how many times I escaped having to face the consequences of my actions in the past. Sometimes I wish that I had been caught, as it might have caused me to find sobriety a little sooner.

    Another 24 please and thank you!
