I had a hernia repair job on Tuesday so as I’m healing and tired I will be short this week with the words. Thanks to all the staff, nurses and doctors at the High River hospital for a great experience despite circumstances. If this was a restaurant I would guarantee I would be back. Since it’s the Hospital I hope not to be but it was the best hospital experience I’ve ever had.
I went to the AA Pioneer Dinner last Saturday with Ryan M and I was amazed at the length of the sobriety of some people there. Jim S has been sober 62 years.Pretty damn good considering an alcoholics first reflex to any situation in life is to drink to handle it. I heard them say one man wasn’t feeling well and couldn’t make the dinner but he had 63 years. That is the longest sobriety in Calgary; 63 years. I was truly inspired and impressed mostly by these men and women.They are all so vibrant. I attribute a large portion of that to how it is in the 12 step community. No one really cares about your job or your age but just whether you’re a good person or not. Often in the coffee shop before or after a meeting the table will have a variance of age of up to 60 years.It’s pretty cool to see who hangs out with who. It’s unique. It’s fantastic.
Congrats to the Toronto Blue Jays on a magnificent year and all the excitement that was provided to their fan base. I’m pumped about what next year will bring and look forward to seeing the Jays in the playoffs again.
Ok I’m getting tired and need to wind down and head over to Netflix.
