Thanks everyone for your kind comments. He was a straight shooter to the end.

I did pay the big bucks Star, that is why I'm peeved.

Kris,
My old vision was near sighted, and at the last I needed glasses to read street signs while driving. And my vision is now reversed. I can see most excellently from about 3 feet to infinity. No complaints about my vision out there. I bought some dollar reading glasses and the 1.5X seems about right. I can't fault the middle and far vision.

RZ,
Huah!

Toots,
Yes it was, thanks.

Sassy,
You're a hoot!

Manz,
You are still the same.

Oh man, just fell asleep into my tablet. Nite.




FBL I'd missed that your dad got the military sendoff. Glad he got the honors and ceremony. Congrats on your 7 years six months.

Andy,
Grats !

IP,
Thanks,
So glad your situation is improved.

Wolf,
I'm having no issues with MITHCastle. Will pm when done. OA's first season ended on a cliffhanger. Hope they continue. We are doing episode three of "Penny Dreadful." "Walking With Wolves" that you suggested was very good.

Hi overs

It's Friday and I can't hear storm Barbara Yet!

Congratulations fbl and Andy on your milestones.

Wolfie, I love dreaming. I'm amazed at the brain and how complex a dream can be when apparently it lasts only moments. But feels like hours. The mysteries of our human brain.

Hospital appointment went well. He putting me back in care of my asthma nurse at my local doctors surgery. He tweaked my meds a little, not sure why when they're working but they don't like you being on steroids for too long. They weighed me aargghhhhh! On the positive side, if I was in the USA I would be a size 10!

Gotta say, Dee, I loved a comment you put on the overs a few days ago. About a twenty year detour in the wrong part of town? Or similar. For some reason it has stayed with me.

Oh just one more thing! You guys were with me while I was waiting for my appointment. Calming me when I was getting fractious in the hot waiting room. Thanks a million.

Have a great day overs.

Petal, good to see you, and glad you realised you needed a little additional support through the stress and strains of the festivities.

Funny, because I would drink anything up to Toilet Duck when I drank, there is no alcohol I wouldn't be tempted by if I was to allow it. I don't, so it doesn't matter that hubby has his drinks cabinet with bottles of all the things I would glug. I know it's there, I also know it's not for me. I'm never bothered by its existence, though occasionally seeing hubby with a drink or paradoxically seeing an empty bottle of an old favourite for recycling, has me wishing fleetingly, that I were someone who could. But I'm not, and in the big scheme of things.... There's still chocolate!

Have a Fantastic Friday, overs!

My boss just gave me a nice sized gift card to the liquor store next to my place of work. No one at my current employment knows that I don't drink and everyone assumes everyone drinks.

It will be a nice re gift for someone!

Safe travels over the holidays FBL!

Hi Petals! This can be a challenging time of year for sure.

Before everyone gets in their cars and scatters around the world to relatives near and far this weekend, I just wanted to say "Thanks" to all.

I am thankful to have made it to the Overs this spring, and to be warmly welcomed by all of you. Everyone here is truly family to me, and you know, at least this side of me, far better than anyone else on the planet. I value the hard earned knowledge that each of you bring here everyday, as well as the funny moments that are inevitable in the life of a recovering alcoholic in a drinker's world. I share your laughs, your sorrows, and most importantly, your aspirations to lead a better, sober life.

Thanks again, and the happiest of holidays to all!
