"To Whom it May Concern"

            I'm at a the part of my life when at times I think, will this be the last time I'll be doing this, will this be my last move, will this be the last trip I take and so on and so forth… Through the years I have discovered that as you get older, although I don't project into the future, acceptance to what is going to happen in the future becomes part of the thinking process.. Thank God I have learned to let go of the past and keep moving forward. I am always learning by my past mistakes.. Sometimes it takes years to realize that once that bridge is crossed, there is no going back. That brings me to why I am saying these things..
           The other day I received an anonymous, "I don't like you e-mail" from someone who can't forget the past, someone who won't let it go.. So to whom it may concern. You know who you are. Let me start by saying I got sober 40 years ago. Yes, you may think it is a Miracle and it is but not drinking doesn't mean instant brains and because of my drinking my mental growth was stunted and it has taken years for me grow mentally and spiritually as in the case of people who suffered because of the use and abuse of alcohol.  There have been times during the past 40 years that I have said and done things that were not appropriate and yes, I did hurt a few people as time went on. I am so sorry for that however I did not like that you mentioned my AA friends. You know absolutely nothing about them or how it works.  Just remember this, I could have never stayed sober for 40 years without a Higher-power and the support from my friends in AA. They have taught me to be the person I am today. They are my life and the best thing that has ever happened to me..  Again, I want to apologize if I have hurt you in any way… Thank you for understanding but remember "For some of us, it takes a little Longer"..

"Its Almost Time"

This is the newly repaired walkway where I am moving....

By the time you read this it will 7 days till move time and I can't wait. As each day goes by the anticipation gets greater. I told some of my friends here I feel weird about leaving now because I am going to miss them. I've had many hugs and people have shed tears for me because I'm leaving but I must remember I'm off to a more modern place. A home like environment where staff cares about people and helps them in this not so nice world.. I won't shoot this place down anymore because its served its purpose. It was an adventure and just another learning experience.. More on my travels in the future.. I'm thinking about going to South Carolina this summer because I really like it there.. Not to live but to visit some friends that I made when I was there that live in that area.. My life is amazing and I thank God everyday that I am still able jump in my Mustang and go anywhere I want at the drop of a hat.. Stay tuned for more of my adventures in the future..
