A Ward of the Probate Court
"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since nineteen eighty eight one day at a time in this episode the Thirteenth Story from the personal stories section of the first edition of alcoholics anonymous published in nineteen thirty nine. It's entitled Award of the Probate Court and was printed only in the first edition of the big book. This relatively short story provides a glimpse of the formative years obey when old timers were those with two or three years sober but whose perseverance and dedication made possible a solid foundation for the entire a movement and now the original story award of the probate court at about the time. My graduation from high school a State University was established in our city on the call for an office assistant. I was recommended by my superintendent and got the position. I was rather his choice in pride but a few years later I met him in a nearby city and panhandle him for two bucks for drinks. I grew with the institution and advanced in position. I took a year off for ten minutes at an Engineering College at College. I refrain from any hilarious celebrating. Drinking War was declared. I was away from home on business at the state capital where my mother couldn't raise objections and I enlisted overseas. I was on five fronts from Alsace. Up to the North Sea upon relief from the lines back in the rest area being rouge and Cognac helped in the letdown from trying circumstances. I was introduced to the exhilaration of intoxication. The old spirit. What the Hell Heine may have you tagged. Didn't help towards any moderation in drinking then. We had many casualties but one of the real catastrophes was the lost of a POW. A lieutenant who died from the. Dt's over there after it was all over. This didn't slow me up and back in the states I had a big fling before returning home. My plans were to cover up with my mother and the girl I was to marry that I had become addicted to alcohol but exposed the fact on the day. Our engagement was announced on the way I met a training camp. Buddy got drunk and miss the party booze had got over. Its first real blow on me. I saw her briefly that night but didn't have the guts to face. Her people the Romance was over to forget I engaged in super active life and social fraternal and civic promotion of my community. This all outside my position. In the president's Office of the State University I became a leader. The big flash in the PAN are organized and was first commander of the American Legion Post. Raised funds and built a fine memorial. Clubhouse was secretary a belks. Eagles Chamber of Commerce City Club and active as an operator officer in political circles. I was always a good fellow and control my drinking indulging only in sprees and private clubs or away from home I was deposed from the executive position at the college by political change in the governorship of the state I knew the sales manager of Securities Division of a large utility corporation in Wall Street and started to sell securities the issues and the market were good and I had a fine opportunity. I was away from home and I began to drink heavily to get away from my drinking associates. I managed to be transferred to another city. But this didn't help booze had me. My sales and commissions diminished. I remained almost in a continuous stupor on my drawing account until I was released. I braced up got sober and made a good connection with the steamship agency. A concern promoting European travel and study at most all important universities in Europe. Those were the bathtub gin days and for drinking in about my office. I held out in this position for only a year. I was now engaged to be married. And fortunately I got another position as a salesman for a large corporation I worked hard was successful and my drinking became. I was married and my wife soon learned that I was no social drinker. I tried hard to control it but could not. There were many separations and she would return home. I would make pledges in a sincere effort and then my top would blow off again. I began here to take sanitarium treatments to satisfy my wife and my folks I had a great capacity for drink and work with the help of Turkish baths BROMO SELTZER ASPIRIN. I to the job. I became top notch or in the entire salesforce of the country. I was assigned to more special territory and finally into the market of keenest competition. I was top rate and salary one bonus awards and was bringing in the volume but there was always the drawback. My excessive drinking made at times I was called in once twice and warned. Finally I wasn't to be tolerated any longer. Although I was doing a good job I had lasted five and a half years. I lost my wife along with my job and find income. This was a terrible jolt I tried for a hookup but I had a black eye marring a good record. I became discouraged and depressed. I saw relief with booze. There began the four black years of my life. I had returned home to the community where I had been so prominent these were dry days still and I hung out at the clubs with bars. I got so I would last on a job but a few days just until I could get an advance for drinks. I began to get entangled with the law arrested for driving while intoxicated and drunk and disorderly conduct my folks heard of the cure at the state hospital. I was picked up drunk and sent there by the probate court. I was administered. Parral to hide and came to in receiving ward among lunatics. I was transferred to another word of less violent cases and I found a little group of alcoholics and junkers dope addicts. I learned from them the seriousness of being award of the probate court. I felt then if I ever got released. The old devil alcohol would never get me in a jam like this again in times of great distress. Such as this I would pray to God for help. I was fortunate and was released after eleven days and nights brought up in the laughing academy bughouse. That was enough. I wanted no more of it. I took a job as a manager of a club and put myself to the old acid test. I was going to really assert my willpower. I even tended bar part of the time. But never imbibed a bit. This lasted about three months. I went to an annual convention of my overseas division and came to locked up in a cheap hotel room. New shoes suit coat hat and purse missing. I must have slipped badly then followed much drinking in trouble. After a few arrests for intoxication the law decided another sojourn to the State Hospital would tame me. They jumped the stay this time from eleven days to eleven weeks. It was getting tough for me. I came out in good physical condition and held the fear of getting probate again thinking the siege might be eleven months. I got another job. Stay Dry for about two months and off to the races again. I became terribly weak. Couldn't eat and try to get nourishment from booze and mostly only bootleg that one time. I just made it to a hospital and another time. A police patrol took me to the hospital. Instead of jail. I suffered badly from insomnia as many as three shots in the arm had no effect I would get in shape and back at it again. I was going to battle to finish. The time came when I was to be paid. My soldiers bonus I had the limit or maximum coming friends. Advise my folks to send me to a veteran's hospital before I got this money in my hands. I was pro baited again. Held in a county jail for two weeks and sent again to the asylum. This was my summer resort for three months. I was on the waiting list for the Veterans Hospital but I got into such wonderful physical condition from eating and working out of doors that I was released. I reached home full of resentment against my folks for their having my money tied up in a guardianship I went out and got saturated and landed in jail. I had been free from the asylum for about eight hours behind the bars again. So soon this was bad however I was freed again the next day and this was my last confinement with the

"Like that. So that's really interesting. And it has a lot of opera and theater and those kinds of things so definitely would recommend a visit to the spa town and also something that may be travelers. Wouldn't know about. Is this actually an incredible wildlife sanctuary right in the middle o- of the Black Forest? Cool the alternative bear and Wolf Pack. Now when you hear that you might think that it's zoo but actually it's not. It's a really great place to check out for all the family. Sounds like I would find things that are other than bears wolves but that is not what it means right out this place. We found this place and we knew that it would be a great place to take Vegan travelers because they can generally really really care about animals and this place is really for everybody in Europe. Like in many places around the World Bez. Are they really suffer in the wild? Because there's a lot of human animal conflict with Bess to the point where there's actually very few best left so sometimes says that have basically been fed for example and can no longer be the wild because they coming into the towns To get food trip. It's only a couple of this one or two of these examples in the park. They are brought into this place where they can have older. It's not complete freedom. They have this huge amount of space to play and to do bad things and also like in many places around the world. There's a lot of roadside. Zoos and circuses. Which is still using bears for entertainment. Mason's this is very very upsetting for for the bears. And there's quite a few beds the park that have some residues of that time in captivity like compulsively licking their poor until it bleeds and these kinds of things which sounds very very sad but basically this place has become a sanctuary where these animals can be brought to and live the rest of their lives without being small concrete cages. So not only do. They have bears but they also have wolf's as well again formerly from zoos particularly roadside zoos and they also have a few links as well and these also from roadside zoos. And it's been really nicely designed so you kind of Verona path. Obviously offense. They can't get out and you can't get in but you walk through a mess. Lots of informational panels. And if you have the Maine's you can hire a guide to take you around and explain. What's the stories behind these animals? Why they're in the first place and I think. A lot of people are becoming increasingly conscious about not wanting to go to visit zoos. So this is a really great place to go and the model for them is that they get a lot of funds which they need to keep these sanctuary going by charging a little bit of money for people that want to come and learn about the best so when you go there you'll really supporting absolutely fantastic project. But it's it's hard to know about unless someone told you about it because it's sort of right in the middle of the black forest but if you have kids. I think they would really enjoy that. And then you mentioned Karlsruhe Kazu as well. I have spent just a few hours. They're really easy to access. If you're staying in the South Afoul Sas and it's just a really really lovely old Germantown. I just walked around and explored the Christmas market when I was there but it was really really lovely and definitely worth checking out an even if you could certainly do. The Baron will park and calls fruit in one day and it would be a bit shorter time in the car and Doing Alternative. Baron will park in Baden. Baden will end one interesting feature of Cross with for people who are Americans is that Thomas. Jefferson was so impressed by its design. It's this fan shaped city design and you can see if you look at a map that he sketched it out and sent sketches to appear fall. Who designed Washington DC? Because he thought it was something that he should be aware of that and both the inventor of the bicycle Carl D- race and Karl Benz a come from Karlsruhe to Carl's from another episode. Actually hear more about Karlsruhe in that part of the river. We have an episode on baden-wuerttemberg and that's the German state. You're in when you're down in the Schwartz. Fall the black forest or in that particular area Karlsruhe all the way up to Heidelberg. For instance antastic. Yeah I'll check that one out research for next time. Excellent do we have anything else. We want to cover on your itinerary or shall we start to get some of our wrap up questions. Well I would love to talk about Basel. Please do please. Do we have another episode on Basel? If people want to hear more detail well definitely go and check out that episode and for more of the detail. But it's a really great place to visit when you're staying now. Saas because it's so accessible. If you'll staying in time which is web we stay when we are there than it's just a thirty minute drive from ensisheim old from a place like Muluzi's which has a TV station. It's only something like twenty minutes from Mount Mulu Station and you can just arrive and you can just ban Switzerland and that's so much fun and interesting thing. Did you know that? Basel was the home of Switzerland's Navy did not know that Switzerland had eighty so I would have to say no. I did not know that tried. Well my husband takes great pleasure in sharing this little factoid with people because why would Switzerland needs a navy because it's landlocked but actually because the prime goes through Basel and the brine goes into the ocean. That's why I have a little ninety presents right there. Well in many people will run into Basel. If you do a Rhine River cruise they either start or end in Basel for those of you. Who are doing that trip. Yes so try and spot the the evidence of the Swiss a navy there. I guess it's just a really lovely. Swiss town at the town whole is stunning. It's bright red. It's painted on the outside and has really beautiful. I don't know whether you would call them. Frescoes but just painted wolves in that town hole there and it has a really lovely Catholic cathedral not as grandiose as like the one in Strasbourg for example but beautiful started building in the year. Twenty nine thousand eighteen and it has stunning roof of all different colored tiles of which there are several buildings in Basil. That has so I would definitely encourage visit to Basel. When you're staying in Alvis excellent one thing. We haven't talked about his food. Now I suspect you and I may be eating different things while we are in all Saas are their recommendations that you would make yes show so yes. I'm sure it's very obvious by now. But I'm passionate Vegan and traditionally. Al Isn't like the most Vegan friendly in terms of that in terms of the current food that the traditional food of the region however. Interestingly there are quite a few Vegan restaurants in the region where you can have things like fun do when you can have Kuku Hof Vegan Cucolo half black forest cake. Hang on a second fund do is vegetarian but I thought wasn't Vegan. Is there a Vegan? Fondue yes feilden shoes or something like that kind of he's okay. I got a couple of places that will like our hotel that we stay in cooks vegan cheese fondue for us lots of fun and you can get Vegan equivalence of monster cheese which is really quite Kenny. Uncanny taste of it is really interesting so yeah there are some incredible places way you can as a beacon enjoy some of those. French or ALSATIANS SPECIALTIES. But might Vegan. I would have to say that. I've had vegan cheese and it tasted to me of disappointment but I suspect that there are better ones out there than I have had so yes and I have to give full marks to the French in this area as you can imagine with the country of obsessed with cheese and quality of food. We're talking about a country that has achieved for every day of the week. Yes then clump but as you can imagine vegan French vegan chefs and cheesemakers produces. They have very high standards. And you might be surprised. Just tell incredible vegan common bizarre. The vegan wants does the vegan cheeses. I can share a funny story of out driver. Who TAKES US around South Australia? He's not Vegan at all but he's eight speaking with us. Which of course is lovely and we give him Vegan cheeses and I think he knows he can be honest with this but when we gave him a Vegan blue cheese that we buy for travelers. He was just so shocked he felt that it tasted the same as the non V. Confession signs that are Vegan cheeses out there and getting better every year as we get to our wrap up questions. You're standing in the prettiest spot and also us. Oh where are you standing at? What are you looking at Cranky? Okay in the the main square in his time at Christmas time the beautiful Christmas carols are being played on the loudspeaker and sometimes there's live carol singers as well. It's just really quiet. That's just people talking in a low voice with them malt wines. The lighting is so beautiful. Everyone is just so happy kids playing. Everyone's drinking this mulled wine and having spice nuts and just enjoying the atmosphere that would be my favorite excellent and I do have to ask. Where are you from originally you were not from all Saas? No No I grew up in the UK. And then I emigrated to Australia when I was eighteen. Which might explain my accent. I didn't explain the accent. Explained the word Crikey. I was hearing a an English accent and suddenly you were using Australian words and I did not know that until that point. Okay that makes perfect sense and one thing that makes you laugh and say only and also us. Ooh stokes works. I just love them. Of course they are in other places that now south fat just seeing them and these crazy big nests and flying in and taking off and it just makes me. I'm not funny but it just makes me laugh with joy. Let's say that and I'd say the big difference there we've talked about storks and other areas. You go down to southern Florida and see the storks. But you don't see them in the town perched on the on the chimneys traditionally or on these new structures that will save the chimneys. It's just a very different. I used to ask the question of one way. You would know you were only in all. Saas and I think you're right. That storks would be an answer to that question as well. Yes excellent and if you had to summarize the region in just three words what three words would you choose much to see to see excellent well in our guest again has been brighty read from world big travel dot Com and normally righty? I asked people what their best post is for a particular region..
Travel to the Alsace Region of France
"I'd like to welcome to the show. Brady read from a world vegan TRAVEL DOT com. Who has come to talk to us about the all sauce Brady? Welcome to the show It's a pleasure to be here. Thank you so much for having me and I've already learned something because I was the first thing I came out of my mouth when we started talking. I was saying it wrong about who you want to put it on a map force. Yeah absolutely so the else. Region of France is in the east of France its shares but if a border with Switzerland and also Germany. So it's really in the east central part of France and there's some things that are unusual about this area which will get into. But why should someone go to the all Saas Festival frats just generally speaking is of course a very very popular destination? One of the reasons why. I think France is so appealing. Is that each of the regions So different and also is particularly interesting. In my opinion for a number of reasons so festival is a little bit of like a cultural exception to France and what I mean by that is had a huge influence from Germany over its history and indeed. Alsace has actually been part of Germany and part of France and has it flopped many times over the past hundred years and I believe that before the first world war it was part of Germany for a while and then it went back to France after nine. One thousand nine hundred eighteen when lost the war and then of course it went back to Germany during the Second World War and then went back to France after the war ended so because of this it has a huge amount of German influence in terms of the architect jar in terms of some of the cultural aspects. It even has its own dialect. Which maybe isn't so surprising because actually have quite a number of dialects there but Alsatian is actually quite similar to Swiss German. Actually and actually little trivia there. The USA foundation was actually banned in nineteen forty five however raising white was banned was because they didn't France after the war they didn't want any German influenced in the languages. I believe and when they realized that this was probably wasn't a good idea to ban language like this they actually made it sort of officially able to be used again and now it's the second largest dialect in France although not so many people speak it now and it really is a mixture of all German and French so there are so many reasons but I'll start off with that. It's very different to the rest of France Sir and you mentioned that it was German at the beginning of World War One and became German after the Franco Prussian war in eighteen. Seventy that was when it was acquired by Germany which is shortly really after Germany becomes Germany at that point in terms of Germany becoming got country. So excellent will. What kind of are you going to recommend for us? Well I mean L. S. Is just such a fantastic destination? Because it's really sort of small enough that you can get a really good sense. Some feel of the place and see a wide range of different things in a short amount of time so first of all. I'd love to chat about like getting there because this is really changed in just the past few years so the first time. I went to Alsace which was twenty years ago. Now it required. I mean we know that French trains are extremely efficient but they didn't have any TGV's at all and certainly not the fast tracks until just two thousand sixteen. I think it was so it went from being able to get there in five six hours from Paris to being in central Paris to Strasbourg. Lose in just two hours so it's really really accessible now any for French people but those people coming into France or maybe even want to just add a little. Stay IN AL's Asif that bison themselves in Paris I mean you can even come down for the day. Is that a train that is running from the guard. Dalil I believe so yes yes. It is so young in there so many wonderful things that you can do like I said. There's a real mixture between towns and villages and Cities Festival Strasbourg. That is a really great place to include on your itinerary and I can certainly talk more about what travelers can experience there and this beautiful towns of Karma which is much smaller. You also have the incredible voege mountains to the west of Al Sas and then just across the border into Germany. You have the Black Forest Mountain. They're back forest mountains. Which really beautiful. You had the wine route as well which is beautiful scenic road a scenic road. Where not only do you get to stop off in villages where you can taste wines which very scenic and beautiful but also the countryside? There is just so stunning as well. But it's also really good point to jump over and get three countries for one so to speak by going over the border in Germany. There are some really lovely towns just across the border in baden-baden Okara through and also Basel in Switzerland is a really cool destination as well. So yeah that's kind of a very brief overview. Well where are we going to start? Well I guess because stop in Strasbourg if you like. It seems like a good place to start stress. Book is I think I believe. It's the tenth largest city in France and it is quite an international city because the European Parliament is there so it's love Europeans that are living there who are involved in European politics. And not only is stressful. Like the capital of Alsace and have this focus as being the head of the European Parliament. It's also extremely scenic and the Cathedral itself is absolutely studying. It's widely considered to be one of the best and it's like the Second Tulips Cathedral in the whole of France. And it's considered to be just an incredible example of romanesque architecture and Lepetit class which is like a little region very small area in the center of Strasbourg is actually UNESCO. World Heritage as France has so many UNESCO heritage sites lepetit. Floss is is one of them and that's really famous because it has some beautiful half Timoteo houses and beautiful little couple straits. There's a little sort of canal system that runs through it and you can take a little boat and go through the Loxton and get a bit of a tool there and of course it's particularly magical like the rest of us is at Christmas Time. Where of course you have all of the Christmas markets and there's also the Palais COA which is a beautiful building and real sort of palace kind of setup and has a lot of museums in. That's so stressful is a definite must see. I would definitely recommend heading there for at least a day so if you would just going to stay in the town of stressful then. I think it is absolutely worthwhile and it's something that we do when we are there is too. You can of course find a free walking tour and these are very very popular in France. We have a guide that we use and she's absolutely fantastic with any tool off. The town is going to be so helpful because there is just so much hidden in plain view that you just would not do unless you had somebody explaining to you and professional guides just this incredible source of information in this area

"Calling me by my first name on the neva know me and ignoring him and they were thinking he was route because of his response at my defense to them it's a classic misunderstanding when no one's being rude and everyone thinks everybody's rude are no joins us now to talk about how we can better understand the french are no do you remember that incident when we were working into yes what was it like to explain it from your point of view well yes i was visually invisible so i felt like wasn't there and this person basically almost move me to get to you so at least a little worried excuse me or a hulo something and then there's something that the french on or which is like don't interrupt people if you're not introduced don't call them by their first name and so on yeah that's true and if you really want to interrupt and you know excuse me it's very important in french in a we have a very formal language so if you do not do things properly you have no chance so there's formality and in america were almost proud of not having the formality i think we have prompted to different to have the formality the formative so there's a basic politeness there in both sides but in france you have the that tradition i think the word faux pas is a french term full yes and it says step wrong step literally wrongs in it's the french term that americans no because we can take a wrong step accent and there's a lot of wrong steps we can take anywhere in the will in different countries it's easy to wrong steps if you don't know so what are some classic wrong steps or faux pas americans can take while we're in france and i give you an example which happened to me on rue claire a few years ago i was actually rushing because i was making some customers i was reading you know fast fast walking and i passed three american ladies really past and then i heard what can i get a taxi and i thought no it's cannot possible that there are actually dressing to me but you know very curious so white rushing just turned back and they went just three of them staring at me say mike off the talking to me so i stopped a walk back and i said number one photo they were petrified number two do not assume everyone speaks english here and number three taxi just down the street and you find meaning just go away they went petrified but i felt was so rude that had to be rude back just to give them a lesson let's my crusade the crusade have so these ins and i'm sure those pool eighties when back to america no with this idea that on my god the french also rude but it could have said excuse me more prolong just excusing well borough was that just that have as nice as could have been americans are also sometimes making full pas about how they dress what are some other examples when you're in pairs do what do you notice when you when you think when i think is it's all about language buyer yeah so people who don't speak a language have a tendency to just panic the thing they have to come out with a world right away so you know the arrive and they want to have to deal for example and so they're thinking in english what could say and it doesn't come out in french so then like the bagel did just throw out this word without xyz moss civil play they don't do it in its belt or the parisians different than french in general in this regard would you say there's a distinction or is this a french situation or parisian i think it's french but well tend to be rude actually with the other french people are not really highly regarded by the others in in france i mean if you're driving for example with a parents plate number behind you you'll squashed a i wasn't a south affronts wedneday no driving with that number behind so they can infringe they can tell where you're from by license you have it it'll number which is very small parisian and that guy behind just made all these best to actually overpass me taking risk just to say i beat it up into a parisian are no seven is our guide right now to the misunderstood parisian travel with rick steves are knows an expert french history and art information about as walking tours of paris end his minivan tours of nearby attractions is at french dash guide dot com laura joins us now in the phone at eight seven seven three three three rick from wisconsin.
