UntitledxxxTime for an early start
with lots 2 do…
Ugghhh…

Saturdays are usually my lazy day
& much rather sit & watch a game or 2.

Time 2 play parent as Khalid & I go
for that bi-weekly cut @ local spot
“Cordells”.

unfortunately doors aren’t open…again.
Dayum!…C’mon MAN!

“Yo dad, how about some Little Ceasers.”
You see, pizza has become the common gourmet for Khalid
& fails 2 appreciate Pop’s cookin’.

In retrospect, seems like no one ever did.
Well at least I try.

This happens 2 also be the big day
when Lady Tammy picks up
her “Brandnew” ride.
A Ford Escape.
(see how I put that together?;)

Came along for the ride & thought
It’ll be cool 2 once again, as usual, bring
along the trusty Canon.

Whatever that brings a smile
2 Lady Tam’s face has a
right 2 be captured.

ya think?

Oh yeah!…let’s ride.

Peace!…with 2 fingers;)

I’m not sure how 2 express myself regarding something that’s been affecting me lately…ok. There are times when I think about my past life. The excursions, poor choices, triumphs, failures, escapades & all those other things.

Along with meeting people who have since became great friends, acquaintances & sorts, I’m truly blessed. Able 2 elude the madness that plague the city streets of Chicago while living smack dead in the middle of it all is a testament in itself.

Lately, I’ve been sorta coping with being 45, while those I knew & loved passed on. Death is something we usually try 2 avoid cause honestly folks life is better & no one is looking 2 transition anywhere….well most.

But dayum, wish I could push that rewind button….just a few years so I could say whaddup 2 a few. Sister Vivian who was my running buddy for years & truly appreciated for those “Den” days. Mike, Wayne, Shannon…(just way 2 many)…

We even lost Micheal Jackson & Prince in the same lifetime….really?

Always felt as if they’ll live forever man!

Dealing with this imminent fact that death is real & we all have a date forces me 2 see life through a much deeper scope.

Just gotta make it right now & leave the simple things behind for it matters none.

Much respect 2 The Fallen. Never 2 be forgotten.

 

Peace!…with 2 fingers;)

I couldn’t ask for anything better when it comes down 2 son Khalid. Over the years, people have shared personal horrid stories about the trails & tribulations of raising a 16 year old  but thus far on this end, I’m set…

So I like 2 think.

I can remember when I was 16 when everything was confusing but still I believed I knew it all. Poor choices were made & petty matters were more difficult than they had 2 be…so looking at it from that perspective, yeah, we’re good.

I know young people need 2 have a choice all for the sake of personal empowerment but remember I’ll always be dad.

Readily available 2 teach you about the things you’re not so sure about even if I don’t even know myself,  protect you from the ills of this sometimes nasty world & just be THERE….there’s certainly a whole lot going on in theses times so it’s probably best 2 be that way. Would you think?

Thinkaboutit.

Peace!…with 2 fingers;)
