These are the words uttered by an Australian sporting legend, Ben Cousins, a hero to thousands of kids, a brownlow medalist, AFL captain, star premiership player as he was led to jail, again. His life is over now. He is a meth addict who would not help himself.

I am the victim in this, Cousins said.

To be the subject of ridicule and embarrassment, and I know Ive brought a lot of that on myself, but I dont act out in violence.

I beg you, I beg you, Im not a threat. Every day I close my eyes when the sun goes down and I spew that its another day Im not going to be with my children......"


He is a deluded addict to the nth degree now....

this is why we are here....we never ever want that.

Sober weekend here we come. ♥♥

Welcome to Weekenders Sober369!

Those tomatoes look delicious VMan.

PhoenixJ, I'm sorry about the last minute change of plan, I hope they reschedule.

Glad you're feeling better today Suze.

I have had a change of mind and am now getting an electrician to install some small lights at skirting board level which means getting some holes cut in my adonised "boards" I can get them to do that at work. The kitchen at Saoutchik Towers does not receive much natural light so it might make it look brighter without that harsh unnatural look reflecting off the surfaces. It cannot make it any worse so why not.

Happy Friday Weekenders!

we have a long weekend coming up here in the UK - no work on Monday. it was always a trigger for me to get into an even worse state than usual. if your AV is whispering that in your ear, stay close & stay safe.

here's an owl to welcome any newcomers:

That nice Owl Pic reminded me of these direct Neighbors to us. Dad was heard to say to Junior 'Bye, Son'.

Super nice Pic of that high Mountain Lake, Vman. Plenty of 'em 'round here, but beyond my age to hike up to them above Timber Line any more. The State puts some Native Trout into the larger Lakes by Copter drops. Colorado has more than 50 Peaks above 14,000' [4,268 Meters] known as The Fourteeners. Of course...

MesaMate grew some nice Tomatoes and Peppers and Basil. This Afternoon, it's Homemade Pesto-making time. There's a Road-side stand run by one of many Mennonite Families around here, and it's my go-to for amazing Tomatoes and such...

Thanks, John65...

Hello friends Great pics everyone!

Just checking in before I head off to work in a little while....as I stated in the Soberbus thread, I feel good now about cruising into the weekend, but I need to keep my guard up so I don't get bitch-slapped by the AV!

See you all a little later

zomg Vman, those are some luscious tomatoes. Nothing tastes better than a homegrown tomato! My parents are big into their organic gardening up in Missouri, they grow and eat tons of their delicious tomatoes every summer, give a bunch away too. They grow way too much to eat!

I like that owl photo, it looks really strange It also reminds me that somewhere on my desk there's still my snowy owl waiting to be finished. I wanted to work on that painting tonight but I just couldn't get myself to do it.

Vman, I will upload a photo of my tomatoes tomorrow! They're not nearly as impressive as yours but I am glad I got at least some of them growing on my window sill.

I love all the holiday pics too, we really are very fortunate to live on this planet!
