LOL! (This should be fun). Yes I'm sill around. Probably a lot less "a-round" in square inches, but alive and content. Sometimes the physical ailments do get the best of me, and I've resorted to whining probably a bit too much lately. So I've been told by a certain gal who now seems pretty comfortable taking my inventory
(is she the same one?)
The talk at King School went well. I felt (and experienced) that King School is the place I needed to be, so I opted to make it a home group. It's different than many would expect. There are a small handful of "seasoned" longtimers, but the group is mostly men and women from the Akron and Cleveland areas who got sober at young ages, say 15-22 years-old on average, and they've accumulated 20 - 30 years of sobriety. Sometimes they get self-conscious because they haven't drank for some 30-40 years like a few "proud" longtimers, and from their comments and speaker leads, they hear "I've spilled more than you've drank" from more than a few critics.
What I like is that as old of a group that it is, King School is progressive and more open-minded than many other groups which is why I decided to stay with that group. Open-minded in the sense of friendly and tolerant while sticking like glue to the primary purpose. I'm looking for a sponsor in that group, but I haven't been to many meetings because of this physical problem with what's called a chronic auto-immune disease that sorta came up out of the blue, over the summer.
Thanks for asking, Tim. I can't promise regularity in posting, but I'll drop in to say how-do when I can.
Peace...and may God bless!
