9 Days of Freedom!

Posted by Pops Apr 28, 2018

Well, I am kicking it @ home, benging on my DVR for the evening.  I see that I just passed the 9 day milestone as well. Woo Hoo!  Hope everyone else is doing good this evening. I will check back later.  Oh yeah...tomorrow is my 66th bellybutton birthday as well. 

Pops with 9 DOF!

Okay, so most of you know that I really enjoy a "good whiskey", and that Bullit has been my go to favorite now for going on two years now....well....move over Bullit, there is a new sheriff in town, and it goes by the name of "John Fitzgeralds' Grand Larceny!"  I bring you, the neatest and greatest, and smoothest 92 proof Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey sold today....behold.....

 

Ummm ummmm good! ;-)

Pops @ 66 yrs young today, and in just 3 more hours, I will be a two digit midget with 10 days of freedom!!!

Aint it kewl!

Posted by Pops Apr 27, 2018

  I tried to hang this kewl pic of a one week pin as a banner, but it didn't like the format...so I embedded it here.  Anyway, I had a small moment today as I was going out to the car during lunch, but it just passed as quickly as it came on me...My nature is to want to celebrate @ the drop of a hat, for whatever reason.  And today, marked a one week milestone, so why not go out and reward myself with some more death....I mean makes perfect sense to a drug addict....right?  Geez! the lies that we tell ourselves to get our own selfish ways....Just sick, is all it is...Fortunately for me, I have been through this on multiple ocassions in the past, and I know this is just a short lived phase, and not to over react to it.  Just let it pass without giving it anymore power that it already has....Focus on the positive....not the negative....my actions are direct extensions of my thoughts....If I hope to bring about lasting change in my behavior, then I need to get down to root cause and effect of my thoughts, and develop positive affirmations to help me heal that "stinkin thinkin..."

 

So with all that deep analytical substance out of the way...maybe I can go and lay my comfortable head down on my clean pillow case, and get a good nights sleep!  One week and counting....Woo Hoo!!!

Just tidying up a bit...

Posted by Pops Apr 25, 2018

I just got back from Sams, and felt it was time to surround myself with some treats for those special ocassions...so, I bought:

5 lbs of Halos brand tangerines

5 lbs of Peanut Butter filled pretzel bites

3 llbs of cashews

24 iced starbucks coffee mochas

60 oz of Pomegranite juice

PB & J fixins

36 Diet Pepsi cans

fresh ground coffee

water, and more water....

and a new bathroom scale....

I'm ready for bear.....bring it on!

Pops (at 9:00 this evening, 6 Days of Freedom!)

Okay, I know this too shall pass, but hey so does a kidney stone...but they still hurt like hell, and don't try to tell me any different.  Crud, this stupid demonic thought seems to be sticking around for me to be weak and go to the store or something....ain't happening.

Earlier, I sent Giulia a message about not having anything to offer the newbies except to keep the coffee pot and keyboard close by, as well as the tennis shoes (so you can get off yer butt and get moving) and stay far away from the corner gas stations, and liquor stores.  And under no circumstances whatsoever, do you allow a cigarrette to be any where near your face!  That's what I have for the newbie, and believe you me, I am going over that list of dos & don'ts ever so closely right now......

Okay,,,,time has passed, and so has the urge....thanks guys....See!!!???? Just 2 minutes of keyboard strokes of talk about not smoking, and the punk demon split!  Gone, (for now)

Well, that's all from me for now,  I recorded Madam Secretary last night, and now I can watch it in peace.  Plus, by the time it is done, I will have passed the four day mark (9:00 PM)

Pops is Rockin'

Posted by Pops Apr 23, 2018

Good afternoon,

Well, it's day 3 all day long...not so bad actually.  The nicotine is out now, and next is the emotional stuff....ugh...oh well, this too shall pass....and the banner is of Me and my son Adam, his fiance Jennifer, and that little rocker in training is my 10 year old grandbaby, "Alicia."  (named after Alicia Keyes, as her and my son were friends growing up in school.)  Well, I have a mid year review @ 1::00 today, I guess I'd better go for now.

Remember Me?

Posted by Pops Apr 22, 2018

Hi, and at the risk of being slapped around a bit...I thought that I'd drop in and say hello. and that I am still alive....

I hope all is well with everyone here @ EX, and I will certainly be catching up on alot of blogs later this week.  As for now...I finally have some decent weather outside, and am going to go for a putt this afternoon.

Yep, I smoked again....ugh....but I am back on that horse with my heels dug in just as deep as ever.  At 9:00 tonight, I will have 3 days again....
