Good morning, Overs!

Itch, I've always liked "One Night in Bangkok" and indeed, much of the Chess soundtrack :-)

It was just a joke Itchy, I would never think you anything less than a perfect speller. I used to be a perfect speller, I'm getting dumber in my old age.
We got snow finally, and it's -8 right now. Supposed to get a big dump next week. I'm kind of nervous about it but also it will make my trailer more toasty so it's a good thing.
I've been spending all week recording my show, argh. Talking is hard for me, I'm trying to make it sound good.
Have a good Friday everyone!

Happy Friday Over's,

I hope that all are doing well. Haha, I popped in on this thread last night and I thought I was on a CNN news-feed.

I thought I would share what I consider another tiny miracle/message from someone somewhere that happened to me yesterday. AA told me to be sure to stay for the miracle to happen. In my case it hasn't been any major event, but a collection of small, yet so meaningful occurrences.

My youngest is in Ohio in the last few months of finishing up her doctorate. Her dissertation is due soon and has her quite busy, so the only way we could connect prior to my moving was for me to visit her.

Yesterday we did so. We exchanged gifts...and here in lies this tiny miracle. Hers to me - The Whole 30 Guide to Total Health and Food Freedom. This W-30 program has been an integral part of my quest to heal my body in recovery.

So what...she knows I love that program. Where is this miracle of sorts? Well, for one, that she chose that book. For two, that we randomly choose to meet yesterday - on my 30 MONTH anniversary. Say what you will - I see a message in that random occurrence.

Plus, it completes a miracle/message cycle with both of my girls. My oldest delivered a baby girl this past January 6th - a few days early. My first of what I hope will be many grandchildren.

It was an SR/AA friend that pointed out to me as I was talking with her on the phone after leaving the hospital that evening full of amazement at how fast I fell in love...offering, "And it's January 6th"...then it hit me -

My BY FAR favorite daily quote from AA information comes from the 24 Hours a Day book - for January 6th. I reference and read it often. Here it is...

AA Thought for the Day - January 6th

Keeping sober is the most important thing in my life. The most important decision I ever made was my decision to give up drinking. I am convinced that my whole life depends on not taking that first drink. Nothing in the world is as important to me as my own sobriety. Everything I have, my whole life, depends on that one thing.

Can I afford ever to forget this, even for one minute?

Yes, strange - but true - and both offer a significant messages if you ask me! Miracles do happen.

Hope your day is magnifique.

Carlos

Morning overs, and for Wolfie, 'Bazinga!'

Carlos, lovely meet with your daughter. Strange how 2 minds meet somehow, but it's nothing short of miracles. Also, thank you for the reminder!keeping sober is the most important thing in my life here here!

Hope this typing turns out ok as my cat Merlin thinks my left hand is purely for petting him at this moment . Hehe.

Inpar all the best with your radio show, cherish your voice. Ok it's the week end, you and Fbl can send snow over please, just a pretty smattering as I'm not at work till Tuesday!

I'm gonna do it! I've had this silver hair colour for ages but not felt up to putting it on yet but, this weekend, I'm gonna do it. Hubby reckons I'll look like a hippy, my hair is getting a lot longer now, since I've been growing it in case I got 'moon face ' with the medication! So it looks like it did when I was 18! So I look hippy ish already, Wonder if I'm one of those 'sheep dressed as lamb' haha . Do I care, No!

Hope it's a good weekend friends.

Mags, glad you're feeling better. Sorry, no snow here to send as it'll be 52F here today with similar weather for the next few days. I'm not a big fan of winter, so this is all Jim Dandy for me

Have a great Saturday, overs!

Jim Dandy! Now I would like to learn the origin of that expression--it sounds very American to me.
We got about three inches of snow. Still not enough! My *&*( pipes to my washing mashine keep freezing-and I was going to do a load today! My landlord is procrastinating fixing them, he has to reroute it through the house. I will have to call him today.
Mags I'm glad you sound happier--and good luck with the new hair! New looks are fun. I gave up on dying mine a few years ago. Dyed it for years and years and just decided I was done with the hassle, and I have to say I love my natural colour, even with the many, (eep!) gray hairs! I get compliments on it.
I'm not as salt and pepper as my mom was at this age, so I am considering myself lucky so far. She was getting towards 50/50 when she was my age.
I should call her. I've been thinking about it.
Show #2 went better, I'm actually not completely mortified about it, haha. It really is a thrill, playing music on the radio! This week I put in some Serge Gainsbourg and Jacques Brel, the guys in the hemi trucks should appreciate that hahaha.
I'm about to drive to the next town over to go over the submissions my friend and I got to our magazine. Exciting! Issue #1 is moving along.
Have a wonderful Saturday Overs.
