I get to watch a Broncos game tonight.

Here are some Broncos at training camp. I wanted to find an action shot, but before the season starts, it is hard. I love to watch my Broncos play football. This is what I can do tonight. Watch football. Good Stuff.

Last night I saw S. at the meeting again. S. looks another ten years older than last week, in fact, I swear he is shorter than he was. I am 5'7" and S. was shorter than me last night. S. said in the meeting that he was NOT willing to go to any length to stay sober. Fucking Fantastic. I am sick of attending funerals.

There are pink clouds in the sky now and I need to get out there for a run while it is still pretty and cool.

"Be swift to hear, slow to speak,
slow to wrath, for the wrath of man
worketh not the righteousness of God."

Ask S. what color flowers he wants at his funeral. Tell him you'll FTD them because you are tired of going to AA funerals.
Have a GREAT weekend. LOL

Daave, I said something very similar to him last week. Then he got into his Mercedes convertible and drove away. I think it is hard to "get" how powerless we are when everything "seems" OK. Thank God everything did not "seem" OK when I hit the doors.

S is a blatant reminder of how sick alcoholism can truly make a person..
once it makes its toxic way into a persons spirit,it looks very grim.
I am grateful you are taking care of yourself MC and that you share here ...Thanks for being you :)

Yes, it would be a good thing if I never have to go to another A.A. funeral. At least a drink A.A. funeral.

Hi MC! Congrats on your triathlon, you're an inspiration as I'm doing my first triathlon next summer. I can "hear" the tiredness in your writing and hope you're getting in some good quiet downtime. Rest is important.

I'm so sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you in Denver last week, once I left NM I unexpectedly wasn't able to access email. Next time I'll let you know farther ahead of time! I wound up at a York St Club morning meeting and LOVED it. Loved the club, the meeting, everything but the damn heat! :)

Take care and hugs...

Keeps it green for today. People like that just give me more practice on me. (Did that make sense?)
