Today seems to be shaping up well, thanks, John!

I didn’t get it at first, Suze, but is it related to a brand of crackers?

Just sitting here trying to read posts to keep from grumbling at Mr P... he opened his wine at 18.45....the bottle is now empty... well empty by 19.30.
Struggling with poor signal...

LOl! PhoenixJ told me all about Sao's.

Coincidently I have a familial connection with another Aussie favourite - Aeroplane Jelly. The famous jingle was first played on my great great great (something) aunt's Australian radio show in the 1930's, the Goodie Reeve Show. It's crazy that I have never been to Oz, it's a long story of family rivalry from before my time.

Hi weekender folk!

Good heavens this thread was a lifeline of support early on! Iím happy to see some familiar names along with a host of new.

For reasons unknown to me the change of season tends to be a bit unsettling for me in the sobriety realm. Go figure. Anyway, my class thread isnít active anymore so best to hang out with this fine crew a bit!

BTW, thanks Sao for your guidance re Kings Cross station in London. All worked well and Iím looking forward to a return next June.

I like aeroplane jelly, aeroplane jelly for me....

That is going to be stuck now. So I am thinking about who I can kill.

Hi, Mark! Good to see you!

I'm so sorry that Mr. P is making things rough for you, Petals.

It's really a fab weekender this weekend.

Our neighbors gave us a tomatoe, 1.17 kg of tomatoe..... Those are adult sunglasses :
Wow that looks almost like a small pumpkin! What will you do with it?

Good evening weekenders! People seem to be doing pretty well this Saturday … (not all, but many of us). I'm heading out to an alcohol-free concert tonight -- part of my need to really plan carefully for weekend nights, they are s00000 hard for me!

That tomato … whoa! Gonna make a fine sandwich!

Have a happy and sober Saturday, gang. I'm thinking of you all!

Morning Vman, Good night Dragon.
1pm here, beautiful sunny Sunday spring afternoon.
I just had a massive teary meltdown over missing my Mum, and decided I have to get outside and get some sunshine to see if I can lift my spirits and brighten myself up ...


Hopefully it works

Considering your circumstances you are really exemplary. I hope you manage to lift your spirits.
Sunshine is the best medicine
