What a Wonderful World "II"!

This reminded me SO much of a father
watching over his child,
caring and loving one another,
even their differences. --steveroni

://www. What a Wonderful World!

THIS morning I'm readying to "ride"...about 3 hours north of here, to Lakeland, FL. Getting ready consists (for me) of attending two meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous this morning, and packing up some Christmas gifts which my wife and her sweet daughter have so beautifully wrapped. Then I'll gas up the bike (cost, about $5.60) and gas up the driver with Starbucks finest "regular" (cost about $2.80 for giant sized).

Weather purports to be prefekct, not hot, not wet, and not not. So I'll ask God to ride with me, and ask a few others to ask their Higher Power to help out also...I believe in "WE"! And I shall arrive--sober--at my daughter's house. NOTE: My daughter, who is not AA, but also does not drink, I have chosen to give today an "AA-type" name. MsSoberFireFighterParamedicGirl will meet me, and we'll enjoy together whatever meal of the day is appropriate.

We'll also enjoy taking her big dog "Chief" out for his daily routines, he loves to catch (and eat!) frisbees. Actually, he's--not surprisingly--a very good jump-and-catch-high-in-the-air kinda pooch.

At first I was very afraid of him. For years dogs and I felt intimidated around each other, until Chief, that is. He felt no intimidation whatever, also no compassion for the intimidated--(ME)! He's a trained attack dog, and Ms.sffpg is who he answers to, with, about, from...and also who he defends, with his life, if need be.

We will enjoy the day, and each other. I am SO looking forward to this visit, it's like a 'turning point' in later life, and I need not explain that to you 'turning-point' people.

If our day of enjoyment ends before sundown I may head back home, otherwise I'll just spend the night at her house, and head back in the morning to greet my wife, read some of your blogs, comment on a few, and get my day rolling.

I'm not even going to LOOK at Wednesday's schedule, for fear I could just decide to continue on traveling wherever the blue highways might lead. JUST KIDDING, PRAYER GIRL!

So, I shall see you all sometime Wednesday...please have a whole lot of new blogs for me to spend Wednesday afternoon, evening, and night, and Thursday morning reading. AGAIN, JUST KIDDING, PG!

Yeah, right! (I believe we have some shopping to do.) I don't mind 'shopping', as long as the store has a nice men's lounge with LAZ-E-BOY furniture, and I have a good book. NOTE: Who am I kidding now? Me, with a good book? Crapola, I wouldn't know a good book from THE Good Book!

The following request is not because "all else has failed", but rather, that "all else is being fulfilled."
The request is: "PLEASE SAY ONE PRAYER FOR MY SAFETY, AND ANOTHER FOR THE OUTCOME OF MY PURPOSE". Me, who does love you all so much. I'll be thinking of you on my ride which begins within the hour.
