Look Who I saw!

At the clubhouse in Savannah!

Today is Bike to Work Day in Colorado. Even though I am on vacation, I am going to bike in to work. I am the site coordinator for the hospital, so I thought it might be nice if I showed up. I promised the person who so kindly volunteered to do the work today, buying the juice and bagels, and setting it up, etc. that I would at least show up for an hour. It will be super nice to ride to work, visit a bit, and then ride back home!!! It's 18 miles roundtrip, so it won't be a bad workout. This afternoon my sweetheart (yep, he is my sweetheart) is taking me to a movie and an early dinner.

"Let us never fear needed change. Certainly we have to discriminate between changes for worse and changes for better. But once a need becomes clearly apparent in an individual, in a group, or in AA as a whole, it has long since been found out that we cannot stand still and look the other way.

The essence of all growth is a willingness to change for the better and then an unremitting willingness to shoulder whatever responsibility this entails." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 115

sweetheart it is, wonderful!

ok, I see the photo of that gal on trudging's profile, excuse my ignorance, but who is that? I am guessing it's one of the important early figures in AA, Sister Ignatia? Harriet S.? Lois? Mrs. Dr. Bob?

Hi MC,

Those 4 pictures were given to the Last Call Group in 2001 by Searcy. They're all personally autographed.
Searcy spoke at Last Call's group anniversary in Oct. I had the absolute honor to chair that meeting :-)
Everyone froze that night (the temp was in the high 20's) - we held it outside and had about 4 or 5 bonfires going. Poor Searcy - we had him wrapped in blankets but he never wavered.

Scott, that is Anne Smith, wife of Dr. Bob.

So MC, I guess furniture is not too far off eh? (laffin')

Ms Trudge gets around. She was at our AA Roundup last November here in Houston. I think she flew her personal helicopter here too.

Thanks, S-W-E-E-T-H-E-A-R-T

LOL, go Trudge.

I did not know who this person was until a few months ago. Well, I knew in theory but never had a face.

For now, go Trudge!

That is a photo of Trudge she must be famous. I wonder what trudge did ti get her photo hung up in a club house in Savanah. Ok so it is official he is a sweetheart. Maybe we can make a dinner date of six When we get to Denver. Some things will still never change though.
