reminds me of the joke:
Q.
What is worse than a girraffe with a sore throat?
A.
An elephant with a runny nose.

Sorry for the jungle humor as I keep it politically correct, right?

Good morning...beautiful day down here...sun is shining brightly...back from my bike ride....12.18 miles. whew. Hope you all have a wonderful day.

What a pleasant surprise to find an open blog, just for Tuesday. How delightful, could this be a new trend for the Sheriff? A new daily blog for each and every day? That could be so much fun, just think of the opportunities,not just to get the 5ths mind you, but to hear from each and everyone of you what a P & P day you are having. I mean just look, legal starts with a cute animal joke and BeeJay with her weather report & exercise program. What could be coming next? Inquiring minds...

Sing a song of 6 pence a pocketful of rye.

Hidiho good neighbors. Day is done, now I'm showing up by orbs' crib for some of that 5th! ;>

Hey, what am I, chopped liver, or some other arcane object?

OrbsCorbs said...

You guys can share the fifth. Tomorrow is the 19th anniversary of my last drink.

Mary said...

Congratulations Orbs!

Toad said...

Orb's, Good for you. That Is a HUGE success.

I’ll still have a cocktail or 6 but I stopped smoking January 15th. Forced to, they won’t let you smoke in the hospital.

legal stranger said...

Orbs, let us drink to your last drink...........coffee that is !
hooray on 19 years of sobriety.
Jed, you have first dibs on the enquire blog, go for it.
perhaps you can snap the picture at Orbs crib showing the empty fifth.

SER, good for you! In many ways, smoking was harder for me to quit than drinking.

Thank you, everyone. Not tooting my own horn about success against booze is part of my recovery, but for some reason, this one sticks out. I've completely forgotten about some previous anniversaries. 20, if I make it, should be the big one. However, I know a guy who just celebrated 36 years sober.

Thank you, again. It really is done one day at a time. I can't promise anybody 19 years of anything. But, one day at a time, I have not picked up a drink. If I don't drink the first one, I don't have to drink all the rest.

I'm very happy for you, orbs. Demons are not easy to beat. Quitting smoking was very hard for me. Took several attempts before I actually made it. I don't recall a date, but it has been more than 26 years. Hoping the lungs are pink!
