Go Sooz!! That is awesome! And those mints definitely help me! I have a bag in my purse, and a bag in the car!!! My fiance' tried to take my last one the other day and I told him "No way!" ;)

Edited: Actually was to be TO ALL....

 

HELLO, MY AUGUST CHAMPIONS!!!

We are indeed. 'August' is more than just the name of the month.

AUGUST means: Distinguished, venerable, eminent, illustrious, celebrated, prestigious, honored, acclaimed.

CHAMPIONS. 1. A person who has defeated or surpassed all rivals in a competition. 2. A person who fights or argues for a cause or on behalf of someone else.

ALL of that, DOES indeed apply to us.

We should always keep that in mind when we speak of or about us.

Be humbled about it. For it is a just and honorable cause: FREEDOM. Personal and social freedom.

Notice the name is plural: TOGETHER.

 

Peace and blessings on our new home.

Hi there Youdi, I don't feel I've said hello to you very much.  You seem to be doing really well and I like the way your second dot appears to be growing from the first one - very clever.

 

Sooz :)

Hi 007,

I am very proud of you.  Every time we face a trigger head on, it loses just a bit more power over us.   Walk away or run if you have to.

So, you are now 007 Connery:)

Ms. Connery, m'am, begging your pardon...

Regarding the EVER part, I had my reservations - addict that I am, I still am afraid of lying to myself- for I thought it might be pretentious and dangerous.

Then I thought: I must claim my quit. No going back. I cannot let myself dilly-dally. Holding back. Hedging my bets. I AM ALL IN. Let the chips fall where they may. 

THIS IS MY QUIT.  MINE, MINE!

No turning back  EVER  !!!!

I may get wobbly...shaky...slip...but, through the grace of the Lord my God...THIS IS IT.

 

NOT ONE PUFF....E V E R !!!!

 

Peace,

Honestly JoJo you must be the most energetic person I know!!  I love it!  You are totally insane (or totally sane depending on your viewpoint like in Alice in Wonderland), manic, passionate, violently loyal (just ask Angelina) and I love you for all of it!

How nice is our new home - I got us a lovely rug and some lamps, so let's get comfy.  Who put the case of champagne in the fridge, let's all go and have a celebratory drink.  We survived long enough to get the keys to our proper home!

Ms. Connery, we do NOT get KEYS until we have lived (survived snd flourished) for a year. The soonest any keys will be distributed is AUHUST 1, 2016. Except you, you get a key to the back door first - you sneaky person!

Gotta run - Thursday afternoons is day of data entry at our parish office.

Haven't even had my second cuppa.

Champagne should be prperly chilled by time I get back. NO MESSES. NEW HOUSE - NEW RULES. Let s keep the noise down to a dull roar, K?

I can just imagine the scene when I get back: gadzillion posts and no way to respond properly. Everythin willy-nilly!  

See ya, pretty lady.

Peace,
