Wedding blues but good news…

The AA World Convention is next weekend and I will be there! San Antonio here I come!  I am meeting my friend Jeanne from…well, she lives everywhere.  She’s a gypsy.   There is supposed to be around 50,000 people converging on San Antonio. It will be quite the time.

I am through with weddings.  I just don’t have it in me.   Too many drunk people and I don’t like the vibe.  I do have one commitment in the fall, but that will be a small and sober affair and I owe it to the bride to do the shoot.  She will do the post-production.

The Lesbian and Gay AA meeting is really nice.  I feel very safe there and even though there are quite a few folks who are not queer, it is obviously a safe place for them too.  Plus, it’s on a saturday night and it’s over by 7PM.  This means I can go to the speaker meeting up the road that needs support.

Mom’s doing well and I am really excited about the convention…WooHooo!
