      Reading your porch reports is always a lovely way to start the day, Jude! Thank you.

      I enjoyed reading your take on Tuesday's quote of the day, @Cowboy. Thank you for sharing those thoughts. So good you are a comfortable distance away from the loutish behavior of yore! The good man hidden inside has been set free (actually has set himself free), to shine, and shine you have. You have been a light for me and many others.

      I liked yesterday's quote, LC. It is worth stopping and thinking from time to time what my own part is in things. When things aren't going well, am I somehow sending out signals that I am not even aware of that others are reacting to?

      Another gorgeous day here. The weatherman forecasts returning heat and humidity, so I think I will just focus on today. Nothing much happening except mowing the grass.

      24 more please and thank you.

      6:00am in Alberta, another 24 please, and thanks...

      Hot and humid is the forecast for today, good thing I'm just headed to the city to pick up material.

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

      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 right now. 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.

      Thank you Dill, but I think we're all shining and helping by just being here everyday, for ourselves and for others! I too look forward to the porch reports lol. We all live such different lives and it's interesting to read what goes on around all of us, what we do each day, and how we handle and cope with that daily living.

      You must have pulled our rain clouds your way Jude! Hope you get some like we did.

      I hear you on not liking crowds QDub! But, there was a time when I used to love being in the center of those crowds. I had a chuckle when you mentioned WEM, I can't remember the last time I set foot in it lol.

      Some really good quotes this week LC. And we all interpret and apply them differently, that's what makes reading them so interesting! I don't want to get all spiritual on y'all, but the minute I read this last one, one thought came to my mind; "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do" And that's exactly how I deal with the meanness around me.....and I have to admit, Bubba is right, I have become a much kinder, gentler person since quitting drinking, but there's always room for improvement!

      Jus this morning, as I drove Mrs. V to work, she said I was much nicer (about everything) now that I wasn't drinking. Go figure.

      Another 24 hours please & thank you.

      Another sunny, hot day here in southern Alberta. And itís a day of mixed feelings. The highlight of my day was finding fresh blueberries in our local grocery store. I usually freeze about 18 pounds to enjoy over the winter. Nothing like Mrs QWís deathwads, er, pancakes, with blueberries on a blizzardy day in January! Plus we share them with family throughout the year. 4 pounds have just gone into the freezer.

      On a sad note, I took down the birdhouse, home to a family of tree swallows. They left before I could get any photos of the babies being fed. Oh well. Iím glad though that the babies survived and look forward to seeing them next Spring.

      Cowboy, the other evening Mrs QW gave me a hug and thanked me for not drinking. Makes a guy feel pretty good.

      Hope everyone is enjoying a great af Thursday!

      QW

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

      Love that quote LC! I will try to keep that in mind as my upcoming vacation draws near. There will be lots of drinking in settings that I have tried to avoid on my journey into sobriety. My siblings (they all drink) and I are having a bittersweet reunion in Ct. where I was born. My parents passed away several years ago, and we had them both cremated. We are going to have a mass said, and then bury their ashes together in a cemetery where many of their family have been laid to rest. Then we are heading to NC to see my stepson and his fiance for a week. They are heavy duty partiers and I'm concerned about the temptations that will be presenting themselves over and over. Not sure if we will have wifi in the cabin we are renting in N.C. but I can always use my phone to reach out to you guys if I need to.

      QW...so glad that your wife appreciates the fact that you don't drink anymore. We never realize how our drinking affects others until we become sober.

      Asking for another 24 please and thank you very much!

      The air is cool and comfortable and the morning sunlite is playing beautifully upon the landscape! Birds are chirping occasionally, but not the excited calls of late spring, early summer. I don't hear cicadas yet today but likely will as the day heats up. I started hearing them last week and realized that summer is turning. It made me sad.

      @Jude58, it does sound like you'll somewhat be running the gauntlet. Be confident that you can do it, because you can!

      Mr. V, QW, cowboy, thanks for sharing about your spouse's gratitude. As Jude said, we just don't realize what we burden our spouses with until we have left it well behind.

      24 more, please and thank you.
      Dill

      Cool morning, but heating up quickly. The Cicadas have already started this morning. I used to be fascinated by them as a kid. So huge and ugly, yet unthreatening.
      Going to see my old friend in the hospital today, he's been there since may. Thankfully he's getting some of his mental acuity back, and they've moved him to rehab. He'll have to learn to walk again.
      24 more please.
