Happy Father’s Day to all the Father’s (and Mothers who are fillin’ those shoes!) It’s your day.
This is my first without mine. He passed last October, ten days after his 79th birthday. I miss him terribly… Cherish yours while he’s here.
Happy Father’s Day*

R.I.P to Richard Dawson, that charming and eloquent host of the game show, “Family Fued” has gone home. Richard lost his battle with esphagousal cancer yesterday, at the age of 78. I remember him from Hogan’s Heroes… God Bless his family.

Murphy Jane Hickerson
Murphy Jane Hickerson was part of my extended family I had recently found, and was in the process of gettin’ to know. The family who did know and love her are devastated… Please keep us all in your prayers.

Finally I can tell you.
Kula was always ‘special’; she was nervous and kinda skittish. She didnt like too many people, other than her sister and me.
Its always been me, Kela, me, and Kula. When
we came to TX, we came to a 5 member household; we made 8. Three of those were 3 loud and wild years old. White noise and constant tornados in the house was very new.
Kula went outside (for a moment of peace) and just never came back in. I remember the last time I saw her; as she was going through the hole in the fence she turned and looked at me with those beautiful eyes…
In my heart I dont think she’s “gone”. I’d like to think she just found a calmer, quieter place to be…
Kela still misses her; every now and then we both think we hear her. Sometimes I expect her to come thru the door. Kela checks the closets every now and then…
We will always love and miss you, baby gurl…

That goes to show you that a rose can grow from concrete.

I just want to take a moment in all this hoopla surroundin’ the Murkin’ of Bin Laden, to recognize the real heroes in all this.
Kudos to Bam (don’t know why the f*ck people tryin’ credit the Bush admin for this!) for puttin’ this shyt together and finally shuttin’ the Repubs up for a while, at least (they are curiously silent…), but the ones who storm trooped into that compound and took him out are the REAL heroes, and deserve our dyin’ devotions.
We may never know who these brave SEALS were; I guess if they had a ticket-tape parade, some fascist might try to take them out. But I would kiss the mofo who actually busted the fatal cap.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your bravery, for your dedication to the safety of your fellow americans and endin’ the War on Terrorism.
Most of all THANKS for havin’ Bam’s back*
Y’all took care of business!~

R.I.P Sistah Gurl
Woke up to bad news this morning. Teena Marie, (real name Mary Christine Brockert), that white gurl with the bad ass voice, has passed away. She was found dead in her Pasadena home on Sunday. Her manager, Mike Gardner, confirmed she was found by her daughter, after apparently dying in her sleep.
“Teena was a black voice trapped in a white body,” - Cathy Hughes, founder of Radio One
Lady Tee’s last album, “Congo Square,” was titled after a historical meeting place for slaves in New Orleans, featured a tribute to Martin Luther King’s widow and also song “Black Cool,” written for President Barack Obama. Her first hit, was “I’m A Sucker for Your Love“.
Some of her most fierce hits included “Lovergirl,” Square Biz” (my fav!) and the scorching duet “Fire and Desire” with mentor Rick James. The list goes on…
She is survived by her daughter, Alia Rose, who, as of 2009, performs under the name Rose Le Beau.
