Taking a Trip....

Got to take my books with me.

Yesterday I had a meeting with my boss and got everything approved that I thought I never would. So some new stuff at work will be rolling out on July 1. I feel so happy about this. Today I just have to wrap up a few things and clean up my desk and take care of the stuff you do when you go on vacation... put a voice mail on the phone that says I will be back on July 3, do an e-mail response that says I will be back on July 3, etc.

"The alcoholic is like a tornado roaring his way through the lives of others. Hearts are broken. Sweet relationships are dead. Affections have been uprooted. Selfish and inconsiderate habits have kept the home in turmoil. We feel a man is unthinking when he says that sobriety is enough. He is like the farmer who came up out of his cyclone cellar to find his home ruined. To his wife, he remarked, "Don't see anything the matter here, Ma. Ain't it grand the wind stopped blowin'?" -- Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 82

Have a great vacation. Excellent choice of reading material.
AND I love your new "shoes".
As far as shoes go---one is not enough and a thousand is too many, but a boat load of fun.
Peace,
Scout

I realize I know only a little and yet I know more then what I give myself credit for.....another paradox....Have a FABULOUS vacation!.....and to think that at one point in our development we DID without shoes!!!.....We've come far and yet we don't really know how far....perhaps not far at all....so we trudge on the road of happy destiny onto eternal bliss here and now...God be with you..

Have a wonderful time. I took Mrs.C shopping today and she actually bought stuff, even a red pair of shoes. I should of had my camera though because I did find 2 great pair of green shoes in the right shade.
