I’m just over 2 weeks now being Alcohol-Free and I’m in a bit of a ….FUNK!

Background

I was born in Massena,  NY along the St.Lawerence river which borders Canada. (Living in Woodland Park, CO now).  My mother was actually born in Canada.  Anyway, I was a teen in the late 70s early 80s and listened to classic rock such as Zeppelin, Stones, The Who,  and Pink Floyd and occasionally that new band AC/DC. I liked all kinds of music really,  but CR was my thing.

Present

Well as you know I’m AF and it’s been just over 2 weeks.  I hear that alcohol takes approx. 7 to 10 days to fully leave your body, so at day 13 a very strange thing took over me.    It’s Friday night and I’m home with my doggies, and all of sudden I have this urge out of nowhere to play that song “That’s the way (I like it)”.  What the Fr!ck???   or what the Funk??  I go with it since my whole body and emotions have been going in all kinds of directions.  I looked up who played it and found out it’s KC and The Sunshine Band and played it on YouTube.  Next thing I know I’m clearing the living room floor and doing some very bad grovin and shaking my booty.  I couldn’t get enough so I fired them up on iHeartRadio.

The songs just made me smile and have some fun from Get Down Tonight to Keep it Comin’ Love.  I still haven’t given up my classics though, but an old dog can always learn new tricks, right?

I’m digging this new AF FUNK. Thanks for all your support.

A Good Day

imageIt was a good day.  Sam, my 1968 camper, came home from having his gas tank lined due to rust.  Sucks getting old and oh how can I relate.  The great Great Spirit is shining on him though with some love here.  I just picked up Sam at the end of last year and he’s been in and out of the shop for various repairs, so today was a good bonding day.  I started up in the cab and commenced cleaning.  I swear Sam hasn’t seen any TLC and many moons.  Tomorrow is a tear out day in Sam where I’m going to remove an old sink and fridge.  There’s so much work to do but that’s why I bought Sam.  I needed a hobby and when I saw him my heart smiled and I knew we were meant for each other.  We’re both a bit older, slower, rustier, but still have great potential to shine again and head out on this highway of life!  Feeling grateful!  And so it is.
