It's great to be back in the lounge. I love this place. Hasn't changed too much. The food preparation area here. The hot tub outside the sliding glass door over yonder. A nice hot fire and looky here - my cow hide bean bag chair. I think I'll mosey on over by the fire, take off my insulated cowboy boots and enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate and set a spell.

You know I had a great day today. Sober of course. Got a big project done that was on my mind (and not in a good way) for some time. Well I just threw on the tunes and worked till it was done. And you know what? Before I knew it it was done. And I felt this great sense of accomplishment. And then of course those built in permission thoughts. Well I pushed them away. Then I pushed them away again. Then I had a nice hot shower. And pushed them away. Then I made myself a nice salad (meat salad - ha) and a nice dinner. Then I learned to play some Eagles songs on the old geetar - sung um too. Didn't even watch the television.

Anyways the permission thoughts eventually went away. Plain and simple. They are just thoughts - which I know of course. It sucks that those internal thoughts get the better of me sometimes though. I still have a plan to be sober.

Time to get on with this hot chocolate. I'll be up with sun and a smile on my face tomorrow.

Good night all.

Yep, those pesky thoughts do go away. Keep batting them away and they lose their power <:)>

I thought I heard some cool-sounding geetar coming from the lounge, earlier!

Sounds like a great day, Cowboy, and well done for batting all bad thoughts away ;)? (::)

Nice-looking coffee, TC \:)/

Not quite what my morning coffee looks like this morning but thanks TC.

Hey JJ. Yep. I used to be pretty good at the ole geetar back in the day. I'm practising lots and getting better. I've got blisters on me fingers!

Have a great day loungers.

I play a wee bit too, Cowboy. We should form the lounge band, but what name should we have? :)

Hey JJ. Let's keep it simple. How about just calling our band Montana. I don't think that ones taken.

Another peaceful night by the fire. I actually turned off the tv to practise.

That all sounds great, Cowboy ;)?

Imagine if we did a gig with Santana. Montana - Santana would look pretty cool on the ticket :D

Just checked in on a work (from home :roll: ) break - so happy to see the Lounge back up and running. My geetars skills leave a lot to be desired, but
I can holler, could I provide some ghostly backing vocals to this new Brighteye band ? ;)
It's not perfect - but it's mine....

Just in listening! Great strumming and harmonizing! Enjoying!

I have a geetar, but never could stand the pain of making calluses on my fingertips! That pain! Ouch! :o :shock: :x

A piano! That’s what I have always wanted! And lessons! Sigh! Maybe in my next life! :cry: :(

I brought popcorn balls and Cherry Coke! Let’s all sing along! :P (::)

Hi Iroquois - like you I would have truly loved to have learnt those keyboards - as it is I just honk like a goose with my vocals :)
