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

    Hoping for a great AF weekend for everyone.

    There's a huge wildfire near the place we stay when we are in AZ. It's over 60,000 acres. Prayers go out to all those fighting the blaze. Hoping monsoons come early this year.

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

    Another24 hours please & thank you.

    Wildfires are scary Ginger. We’ve had several in our part of the world these past few summers and the environmental impact is huge. I remember going for a walk with Jessie one day last summer and the smoke was so thick we could almost chew the air.

    Great quote today and very true.

    Question - do we become our parents? My sister commented yesterday that I’ve become our Dad. Not quite sure how I feel about that. Anyone experienced/is experiencing the same thing?

    Yesterday we booked a 10 day winter escape to our favourite resort in Mexico. Something to look forward to!

    Have a great af Saturday everyone!

    QW, what a great idea to book a trip to look forward to! This summer is blowing by! As for becoming our parents, I sure hope I'm not turning into my mom. She was often a cantankerous woman. If I am, I hope my people call me on it. ;>)

    Beautiful day here today! I'll take it as they are so rare lately in this neighborhood!
    @Quit wining...in many ways, I think that we do become our parents, which is not always a bad thing!

    Another 24 please and thank you!

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

    Good morning Cafe. I did something yesterday to share and be accountable for. My husband, who hardly drinks, made himself a rum drink. I looked at it and simply took 3 large gulps from it. What the hell. It was that simple. I walked away feeling horrible for what I did and how easy it was. It was like there was no thought involved. I am learning from this experience and realizing that letting your guard down can be deadly. I am using this as a learning tool and not defeat. I have come way too far to blow it. Just pissed at myself. If i wanted to completely blow it I would have drank more. I knew enough to walk away from that potential nightmare. YIKES.

    6:05am in Alberta, 24 for me and everyone else who needs them please, and thanks...

    Cloudy and cool this morning, more rain on the way! At least I got to hit a bucket of balls on the driving range yesterday!

    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.

    Nothing fancy this morning, just a good old farmer's breakfast...

    @Rava, good for you for seeing those gulps for what they are and coming right back here. We all make mistakes but it's what we do after we make them that counts. Move forward and move on.

    Thanks for breakfast and the quote, @abcowboy.

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

    Another 24 hours please & thank you.

    Great brekkie Cowboy! And a great quote. I wonder if Michael J Fox was referring to Parkinson’s when he said that.

    Thanks Rava for sharing. It shows how our brains work and how the risk of a slip is always there. As Ginger said, it matters more what you do after. Your Cafe friends are here for you and anyone else tempted by the beast.

    Jude, my folks were great but like all of us, not perfect. What I’ve tried to do in helping raise our kids and now being an influence on our grandkids, is to be a nicer, kinder, more understanding person. I like to think I’m doing OK!

    I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday af!
