Gilmer!xx

Leshar, I agree with Gilmer and SoberLeigh. The reschedule for a third time is quite simply unacceptable. I hope you politely and firmly explain that you have only just been released from hospital, booked a room to ensure you weren't too stressed on the commute. If it was an isolated incident, yes of course. And a family emergency is a family emergency. However, I'd be asking for a waived consult fee now.

SW, of course, ask questions on CBT whenever you like. I can't remember every single detail of what I did, but I do still use the basics from time to time. In fact subliminally I guess I've used some of the techniques to stay sober at different times.

Leshar, that is so wrong....sure people have emergencies, but after 3 cancellations I would be requesting another doctor. And not that politely either. I'm sorry this happened...and I hope they reschedule you with someone who is the right person to help.

Doona Covers Snooz...I need help. I bought one, and it's not right for me, and now I am all upset (well, a bit). I'm the world's worst shopper...

Awesome to see your avatar Gilmer my love!!

Halloween always reminds me of trick or treating in our little neighborhood back in the day.
The sites and sounds of this time of the year takes me back.
Andy T's homemade lollipops
Mrs. L's homemade popcorn balls
Walter Z's wife inviting us in for cider and hot chocolate,Walter trying to scare us.
Hanging out with my neighborhood friends.
And always having to walk by that darn cemetery up the road from my house.
Eating way too much candy later that night.

I have other memories of "partying" on Halloween.
But you know, I'll take the innocent and childhood memories over that any day.

And those childhood memories sound wonderful.

I loved your post, Bob. American kids had this mysterious thing called Halloween where people gave them lollies (our word for candy). What you wrote really sounded sentimental and lovely.

It always sounded like the greatest thing to me when I was younger and your post definitely reinforced that it indeed was!

I am going to do the unthinkable and repeat a post, since it seems to have gotten buried in the last part.

Snooz, I got your card on Wed., Oct. 28. Thank you! You're a tough one to track down (I sent you a PM first. ).

I'm going out for supper with a friend and then we will see "Steve Jobs". I'm not a Halloween fan so want to escape.
I hope everyone is doing well. I'm feeling better. Much calmer. Just had a nice shower.
