Nothing wrong with staying busy and working hard. Today is the first day of deer season here in Missouri, I have a farm tag but don't know if I will hunt. Because of my DWI's I have to use black powder guns and only get one shot.

I keep two wood stoves going all winter so it takes a lot of wood. Probably will have a grandson help me today to split another load of wood, maybe see if I can get a deer this evening.

I am glad you are doing the ACV thing, pro-biotics are good. Much of the food we eat especially fast food will kill the natural bacteria in our gut, and food digestion is limited, which will cause weight gain and sickness. Also if we take antibiotics it kills the good bacteria and lets the bad develop.

I try and drink ACV before every meal, and if not possible, after the meal. I see the proof of what is happening every morning.

enjoy your southern day.....19 degrees this morning here in the Ozarks

Never did the hunting thing nor held a gun. Don't
remember anyone around me like in the family
circle ever went hunting. Was never exposed to
it.

However, I like crime stuff on tv and watch shows
taped in Alaska where folks have to hunt for their
meals of course following the rules when the different
times to hunt what and which animals.

If I see and hear why they hunt and kill a certain
animal and it's not a joke but they are truly grateful
for what is provided to them to survive then, i'm
okay with it.

I see on some shows where the adults teach their
children how to hunt, like their ancestors hunt and
use it not for sporting but for survival. Then I see where
in one particular show, the family hunts together and
the children, just go out there and kill those pretty
little rabbits and almost looks like they enjoy killling
them. Like, lets see how many can we blow away.

They of course use every part of any animal they
kill where there is no waste. One man took a bunny
and used all the parts to trap other larger animals.

Some things this family does I dont like.

Then, others, the way they pray to the land for
giving them the kill needed to pack their freezer
for the season till the next time.

Anyway.....today I dont eat much meat like I use
to. But do know in order for us to buy it in the
store, someone has to kill it first.

Okay...enough on the killing for beautiful animals.

Never had Deer meat before, but would try it
I suppose if given the chance just to see how it
tastes.

19 degrees is too cold for us here down south.

We had frost on rooftops this morning but nothing
on the ground. Now we are waiting for a warm up
so I can fold up all my garden blankets I put on my
plants during the week of cold down here.

Shine brightly Mr. Sunshine to warm up everyone
out there in SR land.

Good luck on your deer toad, you live a life that I would like to have, I enjoy chopping wood, hunting & fishing, and working hard to put food on the table and keep a roof over my head. I have been trying small game hunting lately with a 20G, but have considered cleaning up my muzzleloaders for hunting larger game. Someday.

I could not use guns for the 27 years that I drank. I knew it wouldn't end well.

All this huntin, fishin, lovin every minute of it....
makes me think of this wonderful song by the
talented musician, Luke Bryan.

We all have wonderful blessed sober lives we
live each and everyday we wake and breathe.

All the gifts we enjoy, like our motorcycles,
comfy homes with roofs that dont leak, food
on the table, our health with adding apple cider
vinegar to it...lol....or not.... having the strength
and know how to cut our own trees, hauling heavy
garbage to the curb early in the morning while
the neighborhood is still asleep after LSU's Win
last night..... And whatever you fine sober folks
do in your neck of the woods.....

I think, im pretty happy where I am today and
thankful for life turning out the way it has up
to this point. Hoping the same is for each of you
guys.

"Huntin', Fishin' And Lovin' Every Day"

If I could make a livin' from walkin' in the woods
You can bet I'd be sittin' pretty good
High on a hill looking at a field down wind
If I could make a nickel off of turnin' them bass
Never worry bout the price of gas
I'd be wheelin' and dealin' and sittin' there reelin' 'em in

Huntin', fishin', and lovin' every day
That's the prayer that a country boy prays
Thank God He made me this way
Huntin', fishin', and lovin' every day
Early in the mornin', late in the evenin'
I'm getting red dirt rich and Flint River paid
Huntin', fishin', and lovin' every day

I get a little farm pond buzz
Sound of gravel when I'm backin' up
Pullin' the string on a 9.9 two-stroke (Mercury)
I love it when my baby wants to roll with me
Throws her boots on, climbs in a tree
Tuckin' her hair in my hat and she's ready to go

And we get to huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
That's the prayer that a country boy prays
Thank God He made me this way
Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
Early in the mornin', late in the evenin'
I'm getting red dirt rich and Flint River paid
Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day

So while y'all are up there
Breathin' in that old dirty air
I'll be down here
Knee-deep in the Muckalee

Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
I wanna see them tall pines sway
Y'all close them eyes, let's go there in our minds

Huntin', fishin', and lovin' every day
That's the prayer this country boy prays
Thank God He made me this way
Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day
Black coffee in the mornin, dark whiskey in the evenin'
I'm gettin' red dirt rich and Flint River paid
Huntin', fishin' and lovin' every day

Won't you come along with me
Won't you come along with me
I know you wanna see
Huntin', fishin', and lovin' every day

So, Toad, I kept thinking about trying the ACV
with tomato juice like your wife is drinking. It
took a few days pondering if that concoction
would be one id like or will it be yukky.

Sooooo, I got V9 and my new bottle of ACV w/m
and poured me a cup with the right proportions,
then, surprisingly.....it wasn't bad at all. Infact, it
reminded me of a bloody mary but not remembering
what kind of liquor was used back in the day.

It had that tangy taste and easy to get it down.

Later in the day, I decided to research if tomato
juice with acv can be used for detox and sure enough
it has great benefits. Yay..!!!!

Whoda thunk???? lol

Will research other recipes to use acv with....
like grapefruit, garlic, warm apple cider, green
smoothie.....

Would not have thought about using tomato
juice with my acv if you hadn't share your own
experience with it Toad....so thank you buddy...!!!!!

Hello Bikers and friends in recovery...!!!!!

How is everyone doing these days? What plans
do you have for Thanksgiving? Family gatherings,
large meals, getting Christmas decorations up
outside the home?

Some folks around here have their decorations up
in the front yards and lights around the roof tops.

Some go way out and have to start early because
they have so many decorations to put up so folks
like us can ride around and enjoy them longer thru
the season.

For us, we will keep it simple because it is just the
2 of us. Thanksgiving we will have one of those big
turkey legs with a few sides. Back in the day I cooked
for 4 and there was enough food fixed for an army
or large Italian family, which is how I was raised.

Anyway, I am happy to pass on recipes to my daughter
who would love to start a tradition of her own one day
with cooking for her own young family.

I did the decorating for yrs too and that has also
become a fine memory to cherish for a lifetime.

Since we were able to take a nice little trip recently
and got my teeth repaired, thank goodness, AND....
hubby put up my carport for extra shade in our backyard,
that is our Christmas gifts.

Everything else is the joy and blessings of living
a sober life with a continuous program of recovery
to guide us with each step we take.

AND...…

passing on the knowledge of using tomato juice
and apple cider vinegar together to my husband ,
that you passed on to me Toad.

Husband is seeing good results on me and now
he wants to join in too. Sooooo, we got his own
ACV and V8 juice this morning and has already
begun taking it before each meal. YAY...!!!!!

Beats drinking it straight....yuk yuk yuk.....lol

We had a small Thanksgiving dinner with our grandchildren over the weekend, turkey breast instead of a whole bird and lots of side dishes and desserts. I'm making tamales with my kids tomorrow night, will cook everyone a big breakfast Thursday morning, and the rest of the day we'll put up Christmas decorations. Friday morning it's time to go camping!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Sharon!

Hey Ya'll........Thanksgiving, the only holiday they can't totally exploit! Christmas and Easter have lost their true meaning. The meaning of Thanksgiving is pretty simple. We will have dinner around 5pm, the kids do breakfast and lunch at their in-laws, we get them for supper and the rest of the evening which is wonderful.
When I got sober in 1998 I had no family close and had pushed away many friends. In 2000 a daughter I had never met and had been told was born dead came into my life with a 6 year old grandson....since I have had two more grandsons born, married a wonderful woman who had two grown children and 5 grand children. Sobriety has allowed my life to be complete, I am thankful indeed.
We lost an AA member this week who had went out and not returned. He had two young children, so sad. In our small community we have lost 4 AA members this year who went out and and failed to come back. "If you want what we have and are willing to go to any lengths, then you are ready to take certain steps" this is the pre-step to the steps, many fail to grasp this.

Last day of deer season....went out this morning and didn't see anything. Black Powder season will run after Christmas into the new year....another chance.

Ya'll have and day full of gratitude......toad

Tamales, camping, hunting, family, lost relationships
mended, sobriety.....it all sounds like winning combinations
to definitely be grateful and thankful for.

We loose many folks along our journey in life and
recovery. Folks sick in addiction or sick with failing
health issues, , keeping them in our thoughts and
prayers.

Will also keep you guys in my thoughts as well
and wishing you both a Happy Thanksgiving.

Stay safe and enjoy your many blessings provided
from our Higher Power.

Loved reading this. Somedays I just can't believe how rich, abundant, and full our lives can become when we put the plug in the jug.

Good idea Astro.

I remember seeing a box of apple cider in the
pantry, so I went to investigate it.

Looks like we have had it awhile and dont
think we will drink this batch. Sooooo, we
added to our grocery list to grab a
fresh box and give this new concoction a try.

Here's to a new drink with healthy benefits.

Hello Bikers.....

How did the hunting and camping go for you guys?

We ventured out in search for sugar free alpine
spiced apple cider that comes in a powder and
you add it to water. Nair a one to be had except
the regular kind.

I may have to order it online if I dont find it soon
cause we are anxious to try it.

Home Depot was extremely busy as we ran in
quickly for arm and hammer detergent on sale
and a bag of potting soil for my Spring bulbs.

I also use our pressure washer for the first time
and ….omgoodness…..it definitely gets things
clean, esp. the black mildew we get because of
all the humidity and lots of shade.

Anyway.....progress.

Hoping you guys have good news on the camping
and hunting to share since riding motorcycles is
on the back burner these days.

Have a good one guys..!!!!

No deer for me during the regular season. After Vietnam I never cared much for hunting and it still freaks me a little to walk through the woods with a rifle trying to be very quite and then set up an ambush. Sobriety has given me the opportunity to overcome some of my hangups. There is a story in the Big Book about a guy who spent 7 years and 10 thousand dollars on shrinks to no avail. Same with me and the VA only it was 20 years. Only when I worked the 12 steps and stayed sober one day at a time did I get some relief from my Vietnam PTSD.....I am so grateful.

We have 3 days of doe season and then 10 days of black powder season, I will try again.

Thanks for being here for me you guys, even though we've never met in person I feel as though we are friends.

I also agree with you Toad....even tho we have
never met in person, I feel a...…

Comradery......which is the spirit of friendship and
community in a group, like the comradery of soldiers
at war who keep each other upbeat despite the difficulty
of their circumstances, between us.

That was the definition that came up when looking
for the proper way to spell Comradery.

When I shared at meetings about continued
practicing and working my AA recovery online,
I may have gotten some eye rolls from some,
wondering, how does that work when you
dont see each other, like you would at a face
to face meeting.

When you or I live what was taught to us
in the AA program of recovery, passing on
that knowledge and sharing our experiences,
strengths and hopes with each other, no
matter if it is online in a place like SR or where
2 or more people gather together with a common
purpose, maybe over coffee or quiet serene
place, it will work.

Anyway.....I'm pretty sure you understand what i'm
trying to say.

Friendships for sure are formed and I appreciate
them just as I appreciate you Toad.

Saw several folks on different varieties of
motorcycles this morning when we were out
and about. Seemed strange but made sense
since the weather is warm right now.

A little on the windy side as a front is probably
on its way. Yuk….

Anyway...….

You going off to stand and fight for our country
Toad, to live and return to share about it with us
is tremendous. Then to continue living your life
in recovery and faith has made you into the person
you are today.

All I can say is..... Thank you for being here for me,
for us. You are much appreciated.

Well, I headed out yesterday morning in search of dove and quail, but came back with my first two rabbit. Didn't see any doves and the one covey of quail I spooked was faster to fly off than I was to get my shotgun in the air The rabbit are in the freezer until my wife is on a business trip, I'll cook them up and eat them as she does not care for game. No fish, I don't know much about catching crappie or bass. The best part though was just enjoying the peace and solitude. I especially enjoy breakfast in the little pop-up camper. Coffee, bacon, and eggs as the sun rises fills my soul.

Nothing like fixing breakfast on a camping trip.
The smell of coffee brewing or do you use the
instant in hot water? Then some scrambled eggs
or sunny side up? Bacon sizzling till its crispy and
how about them biscuits? Yummmmmy…!!!!!

Glad you had a good time camping and hunting
Astro. It's always nice to break away from all the
craziness of everyday life and just be one with
nature. Right?

I've got an old aluminum stovetop percolating pot that I found at Goodwill for .50 cents, I usually put grounds in it or sometimes I'll use the filter packets. For some reason the coffee out of that pot tastes extra special on a cold morning!

I grew up with those sweet aluminum coffee
pots, one my parents used to make their coffee
thru out the yrs. Of course I was the one who
always cleaned it, throwing away the grounds
in the garbage can. Did not throw it down the
drain or else it would clog it up.

No electric disposals either back in the 50's, 60's or 70's?.

Percolating fresh coffee filling the morning air at
a camp site or at home always smells good. Even if
one uses the new fangled ones today. Set the timer
and it goes off and is complete by the time your feet
hit the floor.
