I'm not ashamed or embarrassed by it. Its given me the strength to help others be better. 

I have been amazed at how much peace, within myself, once I admit, out loud something that I failing at. Once it's said, all embarrassment and shame instantaneously disappear and there is a calm.

There is freedom in truth and honesty.

Find the one orange pumpkin in this picture.

Also, in the New '24 and '25 Names recruiting thread, IU had FIVE visitors for last night's game.  Link gives their names and schools.  Two more coming tomorrow, for a total of seven.

At least I get to be home for this one.

This time last year I was drunk on a jail cell floor in dubois county.  The turkey cutlet was pretty good though.

Sounds much better. But don’t ignore that you have a really good country song in there though. Just need something to rhyme with turkey cutlet and you are golden.

I don't know if the Navy served the fine cuisine the USAF did during holiday meals at the chow hall, but we used to get turkey roll...Looked like a yin yang symbol with dark and white meat...Ummm, good! ;)

Oh yeah...We also had the sausage gravy they had to ram the ladle through the hardened top layer...My Mom and Dad came over to visit me when I was stationed at Scott AFB...Mom wanted to try the chow hall...they'd let civilians who wanted to dine eat there for a nominal fee...$3.00...Afterwards, Mom said that was too much...

I will say on the whole that I loved filling up on a mess hall breakfast. The other meals? Not so much.

Worked as a civilian at Ft Benning, ate lunch at the Kelly Hill mess hall. I actually thought it was decent. But then again what do I know, that was one time.

They knew they had a DV (Distinguished Visitor} in the house so they broke out the good grub :)

Hey in 2005 I got locked up in Louisville the night before Thanksgiving.   Missed Thanksgiving dinner with the family with my grandma from Texas in town.  Pretty embarrassing stuff.  Slowly but surely God was getting  ahold of my life and waking me up.  That was pretty close to the low point for me that I started praying again.  

But man I'm so thankful that you are working on yourself and making  huge strides.  Keep it up.

I've had to learn that it's OK. God is putting me through this for a reason. Only 10% of us make it. He chose me because I'm strong enough to deal with it. If there is one thing I've ever been good at it's being consistent, putting my head down and moving forward.  

Once I'm through the active stage it will be my turn to save some of the 10%.  My goal is to make that number bigger.

When I worked at the craphole egg farm we had a liquid egg product we added citric acid and xanthan gum to so it wouldn't turn colors in hotel pans. 

Apparently the government isn't willing to pay for the additives.

I have a scar about a foot in diameter on my back. Came from passing out on the floor on an ant line. They tried to eat their way through. I’m with you brother!
