The Royal Wedding

Hello All,

Hope everyone is well. For the past few months, we have been inundated with news about the Royal Wedding, William and Kate. Indeed it was a gorgeous wedding, one I'm sure every little girl wishes she could have one day. The couple appear to have a real genuine love for each other. I hope that is the case and that their feelings for each other last forever. I believe they deserve it. What I hope also is that the media not haunt them and allow them to live their lives and enjoy their family and friends in peace.

I didn't wake at 4am to see the wedding, but have seen a number of repeats. However, I did see, at the time it happened when William kissed Kate, his new bride, from the terrace(twice). It was beautiful and costly, but now back to the real world.

I am hoping to have a new website launched very soon. I hope you all will visit it often and invite others to come along and share the experience. Take care all of you and until next time, I remain,

Family going to the beach for a few days

Hello everyone,

I hope you guys are having a fantastic day. Well some family members are going to the beach for a few days. I choose not to go and take Mama. Don't want to take her that far away from home anymore. They came by to make sure Mama and I were okay--we are.

Now, why won't the Donald go after creating jobs and give out some good tips on the budget situation. He says he's brilliant. I just want to say, give it a rest Donald, the birth certificate situation appears to be settled. He is still questioning how the president got into those Ivy League schools. His opinion was affirmative action. I like the Donald but I'd also like for him to give it a rest.

That's all for now. Will check with you all later.

Beautiful Easter Sunday spent with family and friends

Hello you guys,

I hope you all had a fabulous Easter with your family and friends. I certainly did. I got Mama up, fed and dressed and two of my brothers, their wives, some of their children and grandchildren and other friends came to the house after church. I had the kids to promise that they would show Mama and I their Easter outfits. They all looked really nice. After the kids changed into their casual clothing, we got involved in our family traditional Easter Egg hunt. The kids were running around, giggling as they chased each other and found eggs. They were having such fun that I decided to join in and I managed to find two eggs myself. The kids felt badly for me and gave me two extra eggs so I shared them with my friend.

Later that afternoon when Mama and were alone, she took a nap and I turned on the computer and did some work on a script, sent some e-mails, made some Facebook posts and afterwards, I took a much needed nap also. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed it with family and friends. I hope your day was as good or even better. Until next time, God bless.

Watching the rain fall and caressed the Azales Bushes

Hello everyone,
This has been the most relaxing day. Decided to spend most of it with Mama, giving her lots of attention. After Mama and I got up this and got ready for our day, we went into the foyer, opened the front door and I sat on the floor next to Mama's chair in front of the outside glass door and we watched the rain fall on the Azales bushes, the Dogwood trees and the grass. It was lovely. Later, we had a nice meal and early evening, my brother brought us a great salad.

Take care you all until next time. Mama and I are going to watch the Celtics play New York.

My sister is visiting from Atl

My sister is visiting from ATL and we, as always, have been having the best time. Her grandson had a birthday party at Chucky Cheese on Saturday early afternoon and my brother who retired from the Army after 25+ years was given a Retirement Party that evening. Mama and I are doing well. I am thinking about taking her for a little ride tomorrow if the weather is good. Until we talk again, take care and be blessed.

Favorite team

My favorite team, The Boston Celtics won their game tonight over the 76ers. Go Celtics. I'm still packing up books to be shipped to my distributor in Florida. They ordered 150 copies of my children's books, The Oak Trees That Talk(one book for each season and Belcher, The 10th Reindeer).

Mama eats two dinners so I'm about to feed her a light meal. She tends to sleep better when she has a full stomach. Take care you all and I will be talking with you soon.
