Good evening weekenders. I'm checking in a bit late and still have to catch up from page 1.

Please bear with me, but I just have to say I am super stoked that my countryman, Kevin Anderson, has just made it to the Wimbledon tennis final!

Happy Sober Friday Weekenders! it's rather a pleasant, slightly cooler evening here & looks like being a nice weekend.

England-Brussels tomorrow - how lucky that that can't be construed as a metaphor for anything

I'll be listening to India (probably) demolishing England in the cricket instead.

It's high temps and humidity where I am. I am looking forward to a quiet sober weekend this weekend.
I went to the library today and got a nice selection of books and audiotapes.
Happy Sober Weekend everyone

Just gone 5pm here, almost home time. We are set for a fair weekend here in Blighty, I don't intend spending any of it hungover.

It put its front paws on my shoulders, stood on itís tail and laid into me with itís hind legs. Mum the superhero saved me. We were at a wildlife park and we were feeding them grain. I guess I didnít feed it fast enough. I remember there being lots of tears. More from fright than injury. But ice cream saved the day as it does still

Refrigerator #4 will be delivered Thursday.

That's all I have to say about that.

Maybe I should watch Forrest Gump tonight. I'm over it.

No cocktails and no drugs. I did buy a $1 pack of cookies. . .so I guess I'll skip that big dinner and just go with carrots and tuna.

G'nite W-enders. Stay close if you're struggling. Nothing good is at the bottom of a bottle. Time for relaxin' at the couch.

I know a young guy- very fit, disappeared for a week from meetings and casually said he had ridden his bike to Melbourne from Adelaide...about 8-900k (one way).
He was on just such a marathon bike ride with his dad- and his booze stash had run out- so on the excuse of needing to think- rode his bike 40k's to the nearest town to buy booze, then rode back to his dad.

I am at the beautiful Hyatt Regency in Chicago. Very proud of myself for driving my car successfully in heart of downtown...IN RUSH HOUR. Whew! Got myself here with no incident.

WORLD CUP LOVERS...this is MUST see entertainment...especially lovers of ENGLAND. This is Hitler's reaction to the world cup. Very funnyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3SsM1RYdI4

I've probably said it here or somewere on SR a few times; I love the heat. I love it when it's hot outside. Plus 30 everyday is fine with me. Except when it finds it's way inside the house. Came home today to find the air conditioner konked out. And it was a plus 32 day. Called the repairman, then went to Dairy Queen for supper while we wait our turn for him to come around. $300 and a new start capacitor later we have cool air.

I was panicking a bit because the forecast is calling for +34c tomorrow. I'm grateful that I can go out an play in the heat and quickly retreat back inside.

Checking in to the weekenders! Struggle bus is at the station tonight. Started to feel under the weather as the day progressed today... summer allergies or a cold, not sure which but ughhh! Had a solid week... 38 days to a close with little chatter from the AV till tonight. Just going to get in bed and ignore. The tired of HALT is Yelling! Sober is far greater just gotta plug on and soar above this fleeting moment. It is one more for me and although feeling yuck, it doesnít come close to picking up that drink and the crappy day that would follow. Thanks for listening to me blabber... all will be better tomorrow... yup!
