November 20 - A true teacher is not the one with the most knowledge, but one who causes the most others to have knowledge.
Meditations from Conversations with God, Book 1 page 115
Hey y'all, I just added another day to my sobriety. How about you?
Just feeling a little whimsical today so below is a list of Groaners that I know DAAVE will be jazzed by. Hopefully you will enjoy them also.
  • The roundest knight at King Aurhur's round table was Sir Cumference. He acquired his size from too much pi.
  • I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleution.
  • She was only a whiskey maker, but he lover her still.
  • A rubber band pistol was confiscated from algebra class because it was a weapon of math disruption.
  • The butcher backed into the meat grinder and got a little behind in his work.
  • No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery.
  • A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering.
  • A grenade thrown into a kitchen in France would result in Linoleum Blownapart.
  • Two silk worms had a race. They ended up in a tie.
  • Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
  • A hole has been found in the nudist camp wall. The police are looking into it.
  • Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

On page 132 of the Big Book, sixteen lines down and sixteen lines up is this phrase " We absolutely insist on enjoying life." One of my faves.

"We are not a glum lot"

So we think cheerfulness and laughter make for usefulness, Outsiders are sometimes shocked when we burst into merriment over a seemingly tragic experience out of the past. But why shouldn't we laugh" We have recovered, and have been given the power to help others.

Today I am grateful for:

  • God My Higher Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • Movies
  • A very good sense of humor. I have a lot of laugh lines and yes somethings are that funny.
  • You

Now y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

I like the meat grinder joke. That one is a visual that's just gross.

It's nice to have humor and not be glum. It's just as easy to have a smile as a frown.


Love it.
Love your post.
Love laughing.
Love life.
Love not being a glum lot.
I'm so grateful.
