Excellent zoeydog. Looks like you are all set for a second sober Monday tomorrow.

LoveHateWine, you seem to be running a good plan there. Don‘t worry about the sugar cravings. If they come, they will pass too.

Branches, you did the right thing by posting to get that AV to shut (add in as you like) up.

Congrats to all others reaching milestones, or just for making a serious decision to quit.

Least, good to see you posting on the Weekender as well. Enjoy the sunny wheather in San Josť.

A fine Week in clearing, Fire Smoke-free Skies here around MesaVille.

We went down to the Natural Hot Springs in Ouray Colorado. Some of the Mountains surrounding Town are seen below. Yet another fine advantage of Sobriety is confidently navigating the curvy Country Road to there w/o fear of Deer, and other such challenges.

Nice cool Mornings here @ 6,150' signal imminent RV Trailer Travel! So, I took out the Trailer Dinette Table, and am custom-fitting a cushy Sofa Bed that - along with some campy '60s TV Trays we have - should meet diverse needs better. Next is a total Upgrade on the Solar Energy System so we can set-up *wherever* with all Trailer comforts energized. I'll give these Upgrades a trial run soon when MesaMate heads East to see Gal Pals for a Week. Me and MesaDog will hit some remote spot to just hang out Sober while Hiking and taking Pix.

Highly recommended!

I was off fly fishing so late check in..
Well done to you Nonfiction and Zoeydog.
Hope everyone is having a good Sunday.
I took about 5 little rainbow trout and missed at least 5 more. They were all released back into the river. Thanks to my friends DS and CK.
Always nice to see a mesaPhoto.

Congratulations on 6 months VMan! A significant and worthwhile milestone.

Fantastic photo's from you and Mesaman, you both live in wonderfully cinematic parts of the world.

It was (and still is) another fantastic warm sunny day in London again. I crossed over to the posh side of town earlier for some window shopping. (I need a new suit)

People tell me I take after the otters, in that I'm wicked and playful, always messing around!

I think it was my old buddy Jean-Paul Sartre who said "Hell is otter people."

In one of my long therapy drives (in very scenic ranges, water, birds, no humans) I was parked by a pretty remote reservoir and a big pelican was circling upwards on air thermals..it was lovely to watch, so graceful.

Phoenix, I might have some idea of what you are referring to. We spent a month visiting friends in Mt Barker at the end of 2015. The Adelaide Hills are truly beautiful, if that’s where you were driving.

Thanks Gilmer. It is quieter on a Sunday and easier to stand still and take it.

I did not buy anything CH. I only wear a suit about once a fortnight but because my weight has yo-yo'd since I quit boozing they don't fit for long. The good news is that it has been mostly weight off.

SnazzyDresser, I pretty sure Satre said Hull is other people.
