I made it through forty-three years but I don't remember much about the last twenty-three; I think they were alcohol-related.  "I can see clearly now, the grain is gone..."  I quit drinking October 31, 2005, and I have to tell you, it's a huge difference.  (Incidentally, I quit smoking on October 31, 2001.)

You know the saying "If I knew then ... "?  Yep, it's just like that.  I'm glad I quit drinking.

Have you ever gotten the urge to say what's on your mind about politics and politicians?  I do too:  some of these politicians are @#$%*#% idiots.  From Where I Sit is my soapbox when I've got an opinion to share.  Take it with a grain of salt, after all it's only my opinion. 

And everyone knows that "opinions are like @$$**les ... "


Events leading up to the Magical Mystery Trip



My last road trip was in August.  I went back to the old stomping grounds for my 25th high school reunion.  I had a pretty good time and got to see a lot of old friends.  I saw an old crush (I wrote a poem to her in 8th grade) and saw a football teammate (he's gotten taller).  I re-met several people I haven't seen in over 25 years and had an awesome time.


Since the reunion, I've gotten to know one of my classmates a little better.  I knew her in school, but not very well.  (Thank you, Al Gore, for inventing the Internet - it's helped to bridge the 200 miles between us.)  I'm going back over to visit soon.


The Magical Mystery Trip



Wow.  My weekend trip to Pensacola was great!  The drive over was in wonderful weather; Interstate 10 was virtually litter-free; traffic was steady and there were no major delays.


I had such a cool time while I was in Pensacola - I've got this happy-go-lucky groove-thing going on.  The Best Damn Hostess in Pensacola was my Hostess: you can't convince me otherwise.  On Friday night, we went out to eat at a pretty nice place, the Coach & Four.  I'd been there once before so I was looking forward to a nice dinner in a comfortable atmosphere.  I wasn't let down.


On Saturday, we got up early, had breakfast, and then headed to the Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show.  The day was fantastic!  It felt like being back in the Navy again when I heard the roar of the jet engines.  It was great to be among the hometown crowd.  Being on the Navy base was like going home.  I had great company at the air show and that made the day even better.


After the show, we headed back to one of the public leaning posts and met up with one of my hostess' friends and had a few cold ones.


When I left yesterday afternoon, I did not want to go.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself.
