''STUCK IN THE MIDDLE AGIN''of the week.

Why do thay call Wednesday mid-week if there's 7 days than Thursday should b Hump Day. It was for me in my 30's when i worked in Toronto. Get up at 4:00am to catch the first subway car 6:00am. work till 9,10 or11pm. Did that 7 days a week for 6-7 months till i went over the edge. I went on a 2 month long bender,spent 24/7 damn near in the booze can. Right on the border of 52 Div. and 51 Div. my providers of accomadation on a few occasions. Can't 4get 55,53,47 and 14 they all made room for me to. I can't 4get the Old Don Jail. With breaks daily to go to Hotel,Restaurant Tavern or Silver Dollar/Nish Bar than back home to the booze can. Spending so much time in booze can i was offered a job. So i slowed down on my drinkin when i had an unlimited supply. Strange how things work out. I had to get a job at booze can to get back on my feet. After a few months there Kevin was closin down the booze cans/rooming houses. He had 2 roomin houses on George St. when 1 got to hot we move down the street and back n fourth. Best night i and the floor man made $1200.00 each but average was 500-600/8 hr. shift. Was a good payin job specially if ya worked a double. He made nuff money and moved up north to buy a Huntin Lodge. One thing he took some of his boys that had work for him for years. So i went back to my old construction job and did'nt live happily ever after. But can't complain im here ,im alive and i raised n looked after my kids. They and my dying sister were the reasons i moved home. Well lets change gears here n i'll give a pearl of wisdom i got from a chat room post.

Cherokee words of wisdom

An old Cherokee was teaching his grandson about life.

"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"it is a terrible fight, and it is between two wolves.

One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed,

arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies

false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity,

humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity,

truth, compassion, and faith.

This same fight is going on inside you....

and inside every other person , too"

The grandson thought about it for a minute

and then asked his grandfather which wolf would win.

The old Cherokee simply replied,

"The one you feed."
