      I love hearing about the grandkids! They are lucky to have you folks, and you are lucky to have them!

      Another 24 please and thank you!

      6:05am in Alberta, 24 more please, and thanks...

      10C (50F) this morning with a nice gentle rain falling...you can keep sending the rain up here @Rava!

      In the past 24 hours, these people have signed in for 24 hours of sobriety:
      @Rava @Jude58 @dill @paulywogg @Ginger999 @Quit wining abcowboy


      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.

      Do y'all remember back when drinking was fun, when we could control our drinking? That's what this mornings quote had me doing @Jude58. Not that I think I could ever control my drinking again, there's no chance of that. But I tried to think back when my drinking got out of control, and what maybe happened to cause it. Funny thing is, there was no one thing that caused me to become an alcoholic, my drinking just slowly progressed until it was out of control and it didn't seem like I could stop that snowball from rolling and getting bigger.

      There was a time when drinking was fun, the first drink....then the time came, the second drink, when I started realizing I had a problem, it wasn't just life making me drink. Then the third drink came, knowing full well that I was nothing more than a drunk, waiting for and craving my next drink. Maybe those three drinks were the stages of alcoholism for me, what started out being fun turned into a living hell....

      Ginger, that's great that you had a little laugh and a talk about al with your son. It can't be anything but a positive! It's always good to have a sense of humor about our troubles whenever we can. "Life boat humor" is what I've heard it called.

      And Jude, we love hearing about your adventures too. Back porch reports and Stetson reports are always welcome. How is Mr. J's rehab going?

      Rava it seems like we are constantly being rained on! Looking at the 5 day forecast Mr. D said he has no idea when we'll ever get the hay done!

      We are thinking this is the last summer for us to keep cattle. Mr. D's health problems last winter made looking after them nearly impossible. He was too weak most of the time to climb on the tractor. Luckily he has bounced back and is doing quite well now. But the experience caused us to decide it is time for us to let them go.

      Having a great morning here at the coffee shop. Usually a once a week commitment but I was asked to fill in for a volunteer who's hb passed away. It's going great tho!

      24 more sober hours please and thank you.
      Dill

      It's all fun and games until.... It's not. That's how I think of AL. Sure we had fun times but it sure wasn't the AL that made it fun! In the end, it took fun times and turned them into regrets! Don't miss that! It's so nice to be getting ready for this trip and AL isn't in the planning at all. Sneaking, buying more, etc.

      Have a great day! Another scorcher here. I'll take another 24, please and thank you!

      Another 24 hours please & thank you.

      Dill, sadly it’s a part of growing old that we have to make life decisions because of changes in our ability to do things. At least we’re growing old though! I’m sure you’ll miss the cattle but not the work.
      Mrs QW and I have made some changes to improve our quality of life. We had sliding shelves installed in our pantry, we now pay to have our recycle items picked up rather than take them to the facility at the landfill, we’re looking for a service to clean our house and we’re having a security system installed for our peace of mind, as examples. Just a few years ago none of these were needed but we’re fortunate that we can get the help we need.

      Hope everyone has a great af Thursday!

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

      AF since 26-02-19
      NF since 04-83
      F*ck PD and cancer!

      “We do not want to believe that we cannot control alcohol and that alcohol is, in truth, controlling and dictating our lives. When you free yourself of a dictator, like alcohol, the freedom that you experience is totally amazing and so empowering. You get your life back.”
      ― Liz Hemingway

      The last four words of this quote really hit home for me. I never realized how much I was missing until I gave up the booze!

      @dill and @Quit wining....a lot of us here are heading into our senior years which often requires a change in lifestyle or where we live. One of the reasons that I bought a horse is because I know that the day will come when riding is no longer an option for me. I guess that it's my last chance to pursue a passion that has been within me since childhood. Life is good at the moment, thanks to dumping the booze!

      Hope that everyone has a fantastic Friday, and asking for another 24 for all of us!
