Central Park Old Timers Singing

So in the spring of 2009, some of our favorite old timers were lined up in the back, and when they saw the camera come out, they decided to break into song....well sort of a song, it went south pretty quickly

C@Waltham Saturday Night

Well, Waltham's commitment to us Friday was so fine ( Edna, Wayne and Joe) that we really looked forward to returning to them Saturday. Wow, 82 year old Edna had more spirit and zest for life than a lot of thirty something's that I know. Tom B. chaired per usual. Joe D, Tom G, Jimmy, Otto, Rocky and 142 sober years in the cars. They have a cozy meeting hall, knotty pine, fine sound, good cookies...good time.

God Bless your efforts

Almost Turkey time. Seems like a lot of the great ones have passed this year, including our own John T. , "get-a-job" Henry from Worcester  and Larry W. from Townsend and many others...seems like frequent wakes and funerals. Last Wednesday our group had a commitment to 4 Corners group in Worcester. We had a great showing which would have made John T. proud, I know I was. I didn't think we would break 300 years of sobriety on a commitment for a good long time after John's passing in May, but we had 12 speakers. Little Jimmy played group mathematician and tallied us up. 10 people with more than 24 years, Peter K at 9 and Tom G with 4.5. Although Tom was the young one, he was the most dedicated. Rushing from class to make the commitment, his car died on 290. He left it and walked 1/2 hour to the meeting and spoke last. We had 8 speakers get up and the 4 waiting in the wings had 92 years between them. (Tom B.,Lil Jim, One-Day-Charles, Mark D., Paul L., Otto, Katie, Peter K., Paul M., Dennis A., Rocky and Tom G.)

The grand total was 312 years, one day at a time. John T. would deliver his "God Bless your Efforts" line, no doubt.

"Old Soldier" Kim and Pat on duty

On the way back from commitment to Athol on snowy icy night, we stopped at the house of the local Christmas wacko (every community has one), and snapped this picture....Merry Christmas to all our friends at Central Park and extended family (all the way west  to Duffy in Chula Vista California and south to Walter in Florida and Moses on the north country)
