Which co-founder had tattoos?

Next trivia question .....

Don't know! My first thought was Dr. Bob but when I thought of Bill's journey figured the logical answer would be him.
Love Always,


Each day is a new beginning, so have a great one.

Pretty dang cool, how you find these things, Carol!! Smile

Dr. Bob. (I cheated.)

What were the tattoos?



LOL -- I can't give away my secrets!!! I don't know what the tattoos were .... maybe I can find out ... That's not cheating ... just using tools at your disposal!

What was Dr Bob's phone number in 1941?

Who will do the next question?!!

A tattoo he wore the rest of his life was probably from those days at Dartmouth: a dragon and a compass tattoo. The dragon wound around his left arm from the shoulder to the wrist. It was blue with red fire. His son thinks "he had to have been drunk to have it put there, and you didn't do something that complicated in a day. When I asked him how he got it, he said, 'Boy, that was a dandy!' And it must have been, too."

Do we really believe that A.A. Comes of Age, As Bill Sees It, Pass
It On, and Dr. Bob and the Good Oldtimers ought to be
ignored? Where else can we learn, for example, that
Dr. Bob was "gloriously tattooed" with curious figures, including
snakes? [Page 298, Good Oldtimers] Do you need
to know this? Well, did you ever sponsor a tattooed (and
very angry) biker? Enough said!

It looks like it was UN-2436.

That's from http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/AAHistoryLovers/message/6097.

What does Dr. Paul say right after the much quoted part on acceptance?

(About problems and solution.)



Don't have my book because I loaned it to my son when he was in Discovery House and he took it with him to treatment.

My first thought was one of my favorite sayings about the lower my expectations, the higher my acceptance on page 452 in the Third Edition.

Love Always,


This is what works for me ....

"I could not stay sober; unless I accept life completely on life's terms. I cannot be happy. I need to concentrate not so much on what needs to be changed in the world as on what needs to be changed in me and in my attitudes'"

What are these?

Medallions and AA chips, the group I first belonged to used the white poker chip for beginners and 24 hour chips with a desire to stay sober.
Love Always,


Each day is a new beginning, so have a great one.
