My boss and I were putting a roof on an old farm house out in the middle of nowhere, when he decided he had a bellyful for the day. We drove by another job where they were tearing the old roof off for us to replace. It was the 65th day over 100 degrees, so they decided to stop and drink a beer at the river before heading in. Back in the day ( drinking days) I have put away a lot of beer at this river. Every one grabbed a beer and I grabbed my water. They finished the first beer and the junior guy grabbed everyone another round even me. I thanked him walked over and put it back in the cooler. He asked you not drinkin?, I told him no I quit. He said you smokin pot? again I said no I quit that too. My boss looked at me funny and said you never told me you smoked pot, I replied you never asked. The junior guy said well what kind of freak are you now that you don't have nothin? I ain't never seen someone quit every thing without goin overboard on something else. I told him I was busy living and enjoying my life too much to have to lean on a crutch of somekind. He said you;re one of them AA freaks ai'nt ya? I said yeah I am you got me now, he laughed and said the judge made me go and i didn't get a damn thing out of it, we all laughed then, and I said you never heard the pop then did you? He said what pop? If you have to ask you never heard it. My boss asked did you hear the pop Randy? I said I couldn't miss it , when your head pops out of your ass your too close to miss it. We enjoyed the humor in that, everyone but junior. They finished their beer and we headed to the house. I'm glad I pulled my head out of my ass, it's very easy to do left hand right ear, right hand left ear, yank and jerk till you hear a loud pop, then listen to the message at a meeting.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
