Serenity Club in St Augustine, FL
AMENDED: MY DEEPEST APOLOGIES: Don't know HOW my blog got all Fk'd up last night. I certainly am not "doing bad things". My sleep habits might need changing??? Four hours is not enough even when you're having fun--at my age--at ANY age! SO! I know what to do. If you arrived here before 9:00AM Wednesday, please give it another read...not that it's that worthy, but it HAS been altered a bit...a LOT! Thank you. Steve E
ON A TUESDAY NIGHT
ON A TUESDAY NIGHT
Our cat has Bulimia Nervosa. Really. I think he eats just for the fun of it--like me. Eating is just something I do to kill some time. I've killed LOADS of time in my day...ask my stomach--you'll hear the echo.
I'm staying in a flea-bag called Comfortable Inn tonight. Right across US-1 there is a nice, clean McDonalds. After the 8 PM AA meeting in St Augustine FL, I'm gonna git me a Burger! Went to a Step meeting at 5:30 PM, and will get to a 7 AM tomorrow before leaving this place. Don't yet have a plan for tomorrow...well, it's happening now, peeps. I'm "wasting more time" (if ya missed it, that means eating).
NOTE: Of course my Big Mac is meatless--isn't that what "milk-fed Angus" means?
My scooter has good brakes (front and rear ABS) but I have found they stop better (and faster) when they are carrying 300 FEWER lbs.
Meeting tonight (beginners') was kinda not good...one lady ranted for a blong time about her husband. REALLY ranted. And said SHE was not an addict OR alcoholic. Since chips were being passed out, she insisted on getting her "annual", said she deserved it. I just said "chips are not strictly AA anyway, give her the whole BOX!"
But it's not MY group....(sigh) No, they did NOT boot me out. But a few wanted to! It is not without reason that one of my email user names is firstname.lastname@example.org Only special peeps are given that address, so now you know who you ARE!
I just left the chat room at TSR (The Second Road) and it is one of my favorite places to be, maybe "THE" favorite. I have been praised, I have been corrected and criticised (with loving care). I have seen people show up there with HUGE problems, and return most every evening for a while, and actually begin to get better! There is a certain group who "show up" with some regularity and it is quite freely a "say-what-you-think" place...with reservations. This is where several weeks ago I met.......
.........A "chat-room chatter" and non-blogger named nickswife, a one-month veteran of the chat room, was on my "visit" list. I will try to keep this "My Story", but if I slip, Ummmmm. I could see immediately that I had become an instant piece in this family puzzle.
Nickswife's family are caring, loving people--who "say it like it is". They do not couch their thoughts in riddles, or weak humor, (like I am always trying to). And it was a thorough pleasure to spend time with this example of a whole family, with in-laws, etc., all so happy, and so cheerful, and so KIND with one another. And they welcomed me--a stranger--as if I had been there all along. They will all be in my prayers for a long time to come--right there on my list, with you blogger peeps. (Key word is STILL "Love"!)
Wednesday might just become a "travel day"....Don't know how far I can go. Going to drop into a South Carolina city, but that is probably ten days away.
Peace, dear peeps. I really feel a oneness here, so just allow me space on this pink cloud for more time--please. More tomorrow.
