I am glad that no one I love so far today has ended up face down on the pavement. Having a fifth on the fourth isn't going to make anyone happy.
I often obsessively pursue feeling good, no matter how bad it makes me feel.
When I was a newcomer, I didn't think I had any obsessions until I started thinking about it. Then it was all I could think about.
The good news is you get your emotions back; the bad news is you get your emotions back.
Women (or men) in Al-Anon can find men (or women) that the police can't find!
I didn't hesitate to call the police last night when some drunken loonies were shooting flares at several boats in the marina. It got quiet after the police arrived.
I've never understood why the Fourth of July has always evoked images of drunken barbecuing and massive parties. It has a lot more meaning than grilling hotdogs and drinking beer.
That being said, we are going to a community dock party tonight with a barbecue followed by the biggest fireworks show in the city.
I'm sure that it's going to be a zoo on the water. The marine law enforcement staff will be out patrolling and looking for people that are too impaired to operate a boat. I am glad that I am at the marina and not out on the water with hundreds of other boats.
Photos from the evening festivities will be posted soon. Enjoy your day and stay safe.
