I get to be a knitting granny

The newcomer asks his sponsor "Why are the people in AA so OLD?" to which the wise sponsor replies, "Because they LIVED."

"If we examine every disturbance we have, great or small, we will find at the root of it some unhealthy dependency and its consequent unhealthy demand. Let us, with God's help, continually surrender these hobbling liabilities." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 288

These "old" people have so much life in them. Is why the program of attraction has kept me ;)

I like how you are really letting life flow with 2 interests. My fiancee was lecturing me about that the other night about gaining a hobby. I was thinking about taking up knitting when I decide to quit smoking one day;once I listen to my doctor and dentist. Enjoy!
