Huge Day

The blue window is in honor of Pammie who asked us to look at something blue today while she is unable to post something. She is caring for her mother. Maybe while we are glancing at something blue, we could say a little prayer for both of them. Such wonderful women.

Today I am heading out of here in a minute for the pool. Hopefully before 5 a.m., I won't have to share a lane. But I am not counting on it. Dang! that pool is crowded.

I will work a half day. Then I am going to the airport to pick up my friend dAAve!!! YAY! He has some stuff to do today - did someone mention a 1984 Cadillac? - and I am sure we will have to eat and there are some folks here who would like to meet him. Tomorrow morning a meeting... What a blessing it is to have made such good friends here in the blogosphere, and Dave is one of my all time favorites.

And then I am heading out of here tomorrow for an AA event at a mountain ranch. A weekend of frozen fellowship. I have gone to this event before and the weather is sometimes "iffy," but this is probably going to be beyond iffy - right into regular snow, cold, and nastiness. I do believe each cabin has its own fireplace, I have lots of cold weather clothes, including flannel jammies, my sponsor and her husband will be sharing a cabin with me and my daughter. It should be grand! And we are there to celebrate a friend's 40th AA anniversary. I am pleased to say that I have known him for 25 of that.

It is good to be sober...

wow, what a wonderful weekend! I missed my "camping" AA retreat this year, for more important stuff... I love those weekends, I pray that you all have fun, stay warm and get some great AA fellowship and strength!

It sounds like a great time. I would like some snow, ice and a warm fireplace in a cabin this weekend. Instead it will be nearly 88 F here.

Enjoy your time with Dave. I am glad that you and he will have time to be together.

And finally, the photo is nice. I'm thinking of Pammie and her mother as well.

Dave was so excited yesterday to be flying to Denver. That car is a beauty from the pictures. Enjoy the next four days!

I'm at work -where they have computers (but can not post)
It just gave me goose bumps (or God bumps) when I opened your blog! As soon as I saw the pic, I knew it was for me.
Thank you sweet Mary...y'all are all like family...the good side.
