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

    One glass of wine with dinner, Jude? I simply wonder at how that can even be done! It wouldn't be possible for me I'm afraid. It would be a gateway to smuggling wine in on the way home and then proceeding to get wasted in the comfort of home! So, hat off to you and I know you will be careful not to let it drag you back in to the madness.

    Our day was pleasantly low key and comfortable. No alcohol of any sort as Mr. D is not inclined and both my son and I work consciously to maintain a choice of staying well and present. So, lots of food prep and cooking, an enjoyable and appreciated meal, football game on tv, and a rousing game of UNO. It was a really good day for which I am deeply grateful.

    Gratitude abounds and with that I hope for another 24 for each and everyone.

    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.

    In the last 24 hours, these people have signed in for 24 hours of wellness:

    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.

    The cataract surgery seems to have went well and Bubba's Mom was feeling good last night when Bubba called her. Hopefully the next one will go as smoothly, it's next Tuesday and at 9:20am so we won't have to get up so darn early lol.

    Sounds like everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving, and as @Ginger999 said, every day is a good day to give thanks, and a darn good day not to drink!

    I've never heard that song @dill, thanks for posting it!

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

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Our mild weather continues. Last evening I took advantage of +14 C, 57F, temps and barbecued steaks. Gotta take advantage of this weather while we can.

    Today our granddaughter turns 7. Looking forward to her party this evening.

    Big Al, I don’t miss the politics of working for a large company. I was always the square peg being forced into a round hole and it frustrated me for much of my career in banking. After I was unceremoniously downsized, I began teaching business courses for a local small business support operation and found what I should have been doing all my life! I used to incorporate humour into my presentations, especially Dilbert. I wrote Scott Adams and thanked him for writing the comic. I think he and I worked for some of the same companies. Anyway, he replied to my letter the next day and congratulated me on my escape.
    I’m a firm believer that when one door closes, another opens. Don’t let anything change what you’ve accomplished! Hopefully, politics and perceptions aside, your employer will embrace the new Big Al and let you show what you can do.

    Have a great af Friday everyone!

    BigAl, thanks for sharing your story. I understand better what you are going through now. My son was in a very similar situation and is now migrating out of his VP position as he starts his dream business. He's doing well and is so much happier. Stay the course! I'm so proud of you and your progress.

    We had a yummy t-day dinner with friends. No AL in sight! Leftovers tonight. Sans turkey for me tho. All turkeys are pardoned in my world. Lol

    24 more!!

    Good morning Cafe friends and the turkey weary. Lots of food, love, and laughter. I wanted to run this morning so much but realize I need some more time. Happy to hear the cataract surgery went well, Cowboy. So, with not a whole lot to share, I gratefully accept another 24. I wish you all the best day possible. Blessings x

    Good evening Cafe Friends! My lovely wife fell asleep on my shoulder so I am avoiding going in to sit at the computer to type my post. So, I’ll keep it short since I’m on my phone. Six weeks today. Seven weeks ago I was not in a place where I could enjoy an evening such as this. Words cannot describe how grateful I am to be sober. I am looking forward to 24 more please and thanks.

  14. Thanks techie thanked for this post
