My 49th Birthday Party

On March 29th, 2022, I celebrated my 49th birthday. I had a band come to the house and play some music. I had a comedian show up and do some comedy. We had tacos, a bartender, and Randy’s Doughnuts all night long! The vibe was great and it was an epic night! It was a […]

I had a blast at my 49th birthday party. It might have been a Tuesday for everyone else but for me, it was a Saturday!

Wow! That’s the only word that I can think of at this moment. I went to the movie theater tonight and watched the newly released Netflix documentary, Jeen-Yuhs. Most people who know me, and know me well, know how much of a fan I am of Kanye West. This Netflix documentary is about Kanye’s road […]

RIP Jerronn

Jerron is my wife’s younger cousin. He passed away earlier this week from complications from Covid-19. He was only 44 years old. Jerronn was the first person I met in my wife’s family. I actually met him before I met my wife. Back in the day, I was a cable installer. One day I had […]
