I don't fast or go to synagogue, but I honor my mum on this day by not listening to music or watching tv, and I don't eat anything other than what I need for fuel. And I think of her and my dad and my brother and love them, and I say the holy prayer for the dead.
I love this Suze ❤️ Thanks for sharing, big hugs and love to you ❤️
I知 also saying prayers for your Mum and your Dad, and my Mum and my Dad, and everyone else who痴 passed on from here. ❤️

I saw a bobcat for the first time on GMA or something.....you should have heard me....it was months ago.....I kept asking Nick what on earth is that? A giant cat? Holy crap....so wow. They are magnificent. But yeah, I'd be a touch trepidatious as well today bim....maybe take a little siren thing with you....I don't like scaring wildlife, but I don't want to take any chances after what happened to badge's friend's mum.

You Kipur is such a devout and cleansing holiday. I have always been so impressed by it.

Wishing Suze and all of our Jewish friends a very Blessed day.

Still at work here a perfect storm of people wanting things at the same time.

Talking of storms it is very windy outside although once again it seems to be worse elsewhere.

Morning weekenders.
We are on the downhill slope to the weekend now.

When I was younger thursday evening systematically meant the beginning of the boozing drugging weekend.

As alcoholism took over it was any evening any morning.

It feels good having confidence in sobriety.
No longer a slave to addiction.

Time to get my daughter to the breakfast table...
See you all later.

I can never work out exactly what sort of insecurity it was that first caused me to seek company with people by drinking booze all the time. In the early years it wasn't the drink itself.

Morning Petals.
Hugs to you too.

I personally find it very difficult to beat negativity and playing the victim. In the end I manage to overcome it. My wife is a great help. She is a natural happy smiley person. She above all does not hesitate to tell me that I'm playing the victim.

Smile weekenders

Morning, weekenders.

Having my second cup of coffee and need to get my head together for the Skype session with my shrink.

Suze - So sorry, I got caught up into turmoil of life throwing life at me and forgot to get back to you.

How long is your sister going to stay in Moscow?

Good news at my dentist that my long-suffering tooth is finally fixed.

Bad news - he noticed that my two another teeth have their edges chipped off.

He was like "What the hell?"/

Then he asked me if I by chance have bruxism. I said "Hell, yeah. Sometimes I wake myself up because jaw muscles cramps make my teeth clatter damn hard and loud.

Over the time it causes wear and tear on teeth and fillings.

So, now I am going to wear the special mouthguard while sleeping. And it's damn expensive.

See you later.
