Spending the night in the Clubhouse !!!
Gonna spend the night in the Clubhouse tonight. Woooo Hoooo!!!!! I can hardly wait until dark, and the kids go to bed too. We have company coming tommorrow night and we ( I ) thought I should give it a trial run before then. (If they come I will be spending tommorrow there too.) So tonight I spend in solitude. Spent a few hours in there last night, until about 12, and man was it great. No tv's screaming at me, no phone ringing over and over, just the thing I desire most in life, peace. I read a little and straightend up some of the stuff that I had in the closet in the house that I moved down there. It was really relaxing. I laid on the bed for a few just to try it out and Smokie Bear lie in the floor looking as content as I was. I wonder if his thoughts drift away like mine, when I closed my eyes I was a thousnd miles away. I could imagine myself (Bear Dog too) in a cabin on a knoll just about a river full of hungry trout waiting for us to arise in the morn. The only sound I could hear was that of the bugs of summer and the croak of the frogs in the pond. If only for a short while I was transported to a far away dream land where I was a true man of the mountians. Needless to say, the Clubhouse is good for me and for those have to try to cope with living with me. I hope that my time in the Clubhouse will make life eaiser for all of us. Talk to you all tommorrow, that is if I wake from my dreams.....
