Incredibly grateful to finally be done with the scorching hot weather and insane humidity we have had here for over two months.....blissfully, it is no longer 80 and 90 all night at 90% humidity. Still way too humid though.

Love and good morning (etc ) to everyone ❤️

I agree, Suze. Humidity and heat is the worst. September is just around the corner though. The beginning of Fall. The best time of the year. I’m looking forward to the first freeze of the year so, all the biting bugs will die.

Count me in for another day of sobriety. Congrats to all who are sober today!

Purps, I love the Tiger link, thanks for sharing.

Bobbi, enjoy sweet Ken’s playing on the porch. I’m sure it is well appreciated by those who listen.

Committing to 24 hours of sobriety at 8:59 AM EST.

Pretty sure today is my 7th day of no alcohol!

Edit: Day 8! 😂

I'm going to celebrate by visiting my son, daughter-in-law and precious granddaughters!

I hope everyone finds some joy today 😘

ishall - I can't believe what you must go through on a daily basis - everyday. And you don't get to leave it at the office - it follows you home. And to keep doing it in the face of such blatent stupidity. I wish you could love yourself as much as we love and respect you. Trying to do what you do would kill me.

Another 24 for me.

This morning Mrs sent me a link. I watched it and it brought tears to my eyes and hope to my heart. It is some very amazing editing but has a powerfully awsome message. The visuals and words are really inspiring. Highly recommended - https://youtu.be/WA4dDs0T7sM
