Another Saturday Morning

I am going to ride my bike to the 6:30 a.m. meeting this morning. After the meeting, I am going to meet with a woman who has recently asked me to sponsor her. I am looking forward to getting to know her better, although I have been acquainted with her for 12 or so years.

Tonight is night watch. I will probably make a pie to bring. I don't know what kind though. I will see what kind of fruit looks good at the grocery store later on today. Night watch is probably the high-point of my social life each month. It really is a great thing, not only socially, but for AA. (our group has a 6 hour shift each month where we take the after hours calls for the local central office - and since it is on the first Saturday evening of each month, we have a pot luck dinner at a different member's house each month while we take phone calls - it is great fun.)

Have a great weekend everyone. - oh and Lounge Daddy tagged me to do something, I will do it later on today or tomorrow....

"During our drinking days, we imagined not-drinking as a grim, grey, joyless affair. Where would the fun be? The excitement? But we found out that drinking was the grey world; sobriety is in full color. Sobriety offers an abundance of laughter, friendship, the excitement of spiritual and emotional discoveries, and moments of just plain joy. As we grow up and grow out of self-pity and despair, we think no picture of emotional sobriety would be complete if iti didn't include the joy." -- Emotional Sobriety, the Next Frontier, p. 101

I like the sound of Night watch. I've thought about volunteering for phone service.

I remember the last night watch. We just go to Central Services here and answer telephones whenever you want. BM goes today.
