Edited novels this past week, is spending Memorial Day with family & Friends

Hello Out There.

I worked on manuscripts last week, submitted material to my agent, worked with web-designer in finalizing website all of which was fun and enjoyable. Today, Memorial Day, Mama and I intend to continue to enjoy family and friends. Mama had an upset stomach this morning. All three of my brothers came over and sat with us for several hours. Mama appears to be doing better--she is keeping food on her stomach now. Thank God!!!

I intend to look after Mama and spend the rest of the day enjoying whoever comes by. My sister will be coming here from ATL on Thursday. That is gonna be g-r-e-a-t!
Until next time, peace and blessings to you all.


A Partly Cloudy Memorial Day

Hello Again,

I hope you and your family are enjoying this Memorial Day. I am grateful for the veterans including two of my brothers and all other branches of military services for their willingness to serve in this country as well as abroad. Because they gave so much and served so well, we are able to celebrate our freedoms. I thank them one and all.

American Idol

Glad Scotty is the next American Idol but I can't quite understand why Beyonce' chose to sing, 'Make Love To Me' at that venue. While I think Beyonce' is a very talented woman, I also think she should take that type of song to the award shows or Vegas. I'm not hating on the lady but there were a lot of youngsters in the audience. I am going back to my work. Trying to work on my Alzheimer's book about Mama and I. Next time you all.



The New American Idol and The Real Housewives of N Y

Hello Everyone,

Mama and I are well and we hope you are. Last night we watched American Idol and it was great to see Scotty win. That young man is going to sell some records. Tho, all of the thirteen finalists on American Idol are going to have awesome careers. I wish tham all well.

Tonight, in between work, I am watching The Real Housewives of New York. Lord, I just don't know who died and left any of them the leader of the pack. They are so full of themselves, but they make me laugh. They all have issues and need a therapist. Just saying, LOL.

Got to run. Until next time, many blessings to you.

IDOL Dumps Jacob

Hello my friends,

Hope you are all doing really well. Mama and I are great.

Well, Jacob is no longer on American Idol. It appears America didn't vote for him as we did for some of the other contestants because his not being there now has nothing to do with his talend. That young man is very talented. Don't worry Jacob, better days are coming.

Fan loves my work

Hello out there,

I hope that you all are well and really blessed. I am.

I got a call from someone who purchased my books, From My Front Porch and the sequyel, Sinners Never Sleep and she told me how much she loves the books. In fact, she said she loves them so much that she would like the story to continue. What do you think. I am thinking about it tho not making any promises.

Well, my team, the Celtics lost a second game to the Heat tonight. Hope the Celtics get it together for the next four games in Boston.

I was also really proud to know that Derrick Rose, a 22 year old Bulls player is the youngest MVP in NBA's history. Congrats to Derrick Rose on his accomplishments.

Until next time, be blessed!

Hello you all,

How are all you sports fans. I was so disappointed yesterday when my favorite team, The Boston Celtics lost their first game in the second round, to The Miami Heat. And, just why was Paul Pierce thrown out of the game. The ref should know that I was none too pleased with that move and I hope he minds himself next time. Altho disappointed with the first game, I am still hopeful. Come on Boston Celtics and let's get four wins. You can do it.

Until next time boys and girls, I remain,


New neighbors in the neighborhood

Happy Monday to you all,

For years, we've had the same neighbors but recently they have built five new houses in my neighborhood and three of them are now occupied. The neighbor next door came over this morning and we had coffee together. She talked about making strawberry and peach perserves and later, she will make fig perserves. I have a uge fig tree in Mama and my back yard that bears lots of figs each year. My neighbor planted two which I am certain will bear fruit in years to come. She intends to share the perserves with me. I thought that was nice of her.

Well Osama Bin Laden is dead, and no Americans were harm. That was a well executed plan to go into that mansion in Pakistan, take care of Bin Laden and dispose of his remains. It's just good to know that he can't hurt anyone else.

Just put Mama to bed for the night and it's time for me to do the same, of course after I watch Jerry Springer. That's my comic relief. Until next time, take care and God bless.
