Where I’m From…

A friend of mine… my sista from anotha mista, if you will, did a blog post that I absolutely loved.. so I thought I would give it a shot.  You can see her blog HERE.   I’m from the smell of fried chicken at Grandmother’s on a Sunday afternoon. I’m from Shawnee Wolves Football on read more »

Maui Waui

In January we left the cold behind and headed for Maui.  I have to say it was the most beautiful place I’ve every seen, and I can’t wait to go back someday.  Although, first class is the only way to go.. 8 hours is entirely too long to spend in a cramped seat, but it read more »

Where were you?

April 19th, 1995 will forever be etched in the memories of millions who watched in horror.  It’s one of those moments in time where you will never forget where you were and what you were doing at the exact moment of hearing the news.  As I sit and watch the National Memorial television coverage today, read more »
