First oyster roast

The oyster roast on Saturday was nice. It was good weather and a good band was playing. The whole weekend was great in fact. The only problem was that it wasn't long enough.

The GR meeting on Saturday went well. I ran into someone from work who was as surprised to see me as I was to see them. It's a small world when it comes to the effects that alcohol has on people. I've run into a couple of other people from work or that I know by going to meetings and roundups. It doesn't feel awkward to me but almost like I finally know this person and we share something special. That's a nice feeling.

Anyway, the person from work lost his wife this past year and she was a bad alcoholic. He's been going to Al-Anon for a while. I didn't know that and had wanted on several occasions to invite him to a meeting but figured that it's attraction and not promotion that would get him there. At the meeting, he volunteered to do some service work for the District which is great. And I said that I'd help out as well. Since we are in the same building, I figured that we could put our heads together and help each other out.

Now we'll have another aspect of our relationship. 'Amazing how this works.


  1. Doesn't it make you feel good when someone you know needs the program, come in? That's really nice.

    I met a woman last nite at a meeting, who went back out years ago, & is now back with us. I didn't recognize her at first, but she did me, it was so good to see her back.

    You have a great mon.

  2. hey syd, just wanted to stop in and say HI, it's been awhile since i've been able to post and i'm just getting back online again.

  3. It is amazing how it all works and how very small our world really is.

  4. its so awesome to make a connection on a whole new level I think. And someone/s to journey this path, very nice
