Blasts from the past

So a friend on facebook posted and tagged me in a bunch of pictures from my high school graduation party.

Guess what I had at the said party? A keg. Yes, I started early. It is amazing to me how many people drank in high school besides myself though. It makes me wonder how many are alcoholics.

Anyone else do facebook? It is highly addictive.

I've been on Facebook for a few months and enjoy it. It's been a fun way to keep up with the daily happenings of family members as well as old friends and my fellows in recovery.

Yeah, most of my old photos show me with a beer can in hand. Or wearing one of those stupid helmets that holds two cans of beer and has the tubes leading to my mouth. And then there's a pic of me passed out in the back of a jeep, I'm wearing a coconut bra, my face is painted brown, and someone stuck my hand down my grass skirt. Me and some of the guys were cheerleaders at the local waitress Olympics, that was our get-up.

Good times. Well, not really. It got much uglier as the years rolled on and my drinking progressed.

I love FB, I go on there at the same time I come on here, its like being multi tasked and catching up on both at the same time.

I make sure I check the pictures and not too many with drinks in hand or horrid pics, luckily!

Ive got an interest in HTML/CSS coding. I like to alter the web-pages at the ones that allow customizing like MySpace and some other pages I have. Then I bop around on the web keeping close with old and new friends alike.

Then I go to meetings and make friends there. Well some friends there...I am a odd sort of fellow in real life. So I do seem to be a challenge at meetings...LOL...Its all good for the most part cause I have made some real good friends outside of the AA meetings. These are my friends...we help each other...it is good that I have found them as they have found me...past my oddball demeanor.

Most of my pictures are of my kids, traveling, diving or quilting......all the things I love!!
