Camel Towing.


A definite must share moment....
Was driving through Jonesboro, GA & decided 2 make a quick stop for lunch when came across a priceless posting for auto sales & towing. 
Just wondering if they did this knowingly or was it just one of those things. 

"Camel Towing"
(seriously????). 

If gaining attention was the ultimate goal then cudos. 
Would I use it's services? 
Doubt it.
(unless I was stranded @ 3am with no other option...lol) 

Hmmmm.....maybe I outta submit this for some classic 
Jay Leno....

Yep!


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

South.

Never really been big on birthday celebrations where all the focus is you. 
Though it may seem hard 2 believe, I'm not much on the spot light...(seriously though)...
The video thing is from a completely different angle.

Anyhoot, Tammy & crew decides 2 show some extra love with a surprise celebration for my 42nd birthday...
(even though I appear 25....ok, ok...35 - maybe.)

What a way 2 spend your special day.
Awesome Son.
Crazily beautiful woman
& a house full of loving people...
Interesting 2 say the very least.
It's just all in a day @ the Willey's House of Wayward Wanderers here in the dirty "SOUTH".

Yep!...



Peace!...with 2 fingers;)





Welcome.

If by any crazed chance you just so happened 2 run across this funked out, highly unusual experience by a honest mistake....

I just wanna say 2 you & yours - 

Welcome.


Yep!....


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Can't

Living 40 + years of life, you begin 2 realize how it all works. 
Everyone can account for times where things happen....ends...then happens all over again....
deja vu...
Some call it coincidence but I rather consider it more of a life cycle.
Life + experience + understanding = Wisdom.
That's the ultimate equation where lessons are learned & past mistakes adjusted. 

It's like going from zero to 90 & back to zero all over again.
Dayum!..."Can't" believe it.

So you say you've learned from your mistakes not 2 ever happen again?
Sure then...
....anything other than that would be naive.

Yep!


Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

Secondary.




Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

Sister.

At times I find it hard 2 believe that sister Vivian has left us for a much better place. 
Where there's no pain nor suffering, turmoil or fear.

Looking back over the years, I can recall hurtful words shared where the end result remained loving....(that's just life)
There aren't words 2 express the relationship we shared - it was always interesting 2 see what was in store whenever she was around.
Willing 2 give the clothes off her back with that infectious smile & exhausting laugh.....

HAAAAAA!!! HAAAAA!!!.....HAAAAAA!!! (loudly & I mean Loud!!!)

She made sure everyone in the room knew of her approval...with laughter & that's cool.

Yep!....Laughter.

Love.

The Marta.

It's been a good while since last riding any sort of public transportation. 
Well more like since arriving 2 hot azz Georgia back in early March. 

They call it the Marta system. 
Hmmm....
Similar 2 Chicago's CTA (Chicago Transit Authority), one must have an acronym...
right?
Let's see...M-A-R-T-A..
Well after a few minutes on Google one finds out the actual meaning & no it's not 
"Many Africans Riding Trains Always".
(a popular line out this way.)

...but it's rather:
Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority .

That's fine but where's the Metro & the Rapid?
Everything's as slow as a snail's azz out here!...
Sheeesh!!!


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Bean.


After taking the Red Line into the middle of downtown Chicago, we decided 2 play it by ear & use our impulsive instincts.
Hmmm...let's see…

Where is there 2 go in such a massive city?
I know…how about The Bean!
…huh?….The Bean?

So off we go 2 the oversized, over rated, silver, ridiculously priced ($500,000) “Bean” in the middle of Grant Park.

There are many things missed about my city but The “Bean” surely isn’t one of them
....lol 
No matter the case, we always made a way 2 keep it exciting. 
Yep!….

Peace!….with 2 fingers;)

The Story.


Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

Stop!

Some may often wonder…
"Why is there always a stop sign in his music videos?"…. 
Like all signs used, it’s a metaphor for “direction” in life..
…for without how could we effectively navigate? 

Stop & think. 
Stop & look. 
Stop & re-examine your present situation & make the necessary adjustment whatever it may be.
Imagine driving your car without signs & signals…. or better yet, something as simple as walking down the street. 
It brings about a sense of order, safety & security. 

Now who wouldn’t need that?…exactly! 
Point made….Now you know. 

Yep! 


Peace!…with 2 fingers;)

Be.

Just thinking' 2 myself wonderin'
....(as always)..

Why is it that everybody wants 2 be like someone else? 
I mean, like what's the point? 

Always thought that individuality & the art of personal expression was something 2 be celebrated, respected & appreciated. 
So why would you think so lowly of self where you much rather live the life of another rather than your own? 
(Dayum...seriously!)...

How bad could it really be? 
Call me crazy, silly, arrogant, self indulgent, artificial, confident, stylish, original...
blah, blah, blah...
(whatever the case).. 

It's cool....cause it's me which means I BE. 
Yep! 


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Vintage.

Sitting @ home flippin' through channels can get old pretty quick on a Saturday afternoon...
So how about makin' a stop by the local vintage costume shop for some indoor fun? 
Huh?....vintage costume shop? 
(Seriously?)

Once again felt the need 2 bring along the trusty pocket cam for who in the world would want 2 miss something as spontaneous as this? 
Must admit, had a fabulous time trying on old mildewed clothing worn repeatedly by a multitude of strange folk. (Sheeesh!....lol )

Yep!


 Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Poor Charlie.


Was walking down Sheridan Ave. & noticed this Lost Dog reward sign posted on some random pole. 
It's always unfortunate 2 see pet owner grieving over their lost pets but thought it'll be a great capture. 

I hope they were eventually able 2 find this lowly pup....Awwwww..."Poor Charlie"...

Ok then...back 2 our original broadcast already in session. 
(Always wanted 2 do that)...

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Emergency.

I've always been one that find most gratification watching & reading that incite thought, understanding, revelation. 
The more you know the better right?

Refusing 2 be left in the dark on what's around me, I stand 2 readily prepared for any situation.
(Well...hopefully)... 

I mean, how could a Jerry Springer or a Maury Povich fill such a void that appears so much more important?  Who really cares about Tom Cruise's divorce & his obsession with cults? 

(C'mon.)
Well as of late, there just so happen 2 be way, way, way 2 much going on. 

So many so called natural disasters where lives are completely destroyed.....fires, floods, crazy heat in the most unusual places...

Then there seems 2 be some sorta major food crisis where prices are ridiculously through the roof. 
Hmmm...maybe that's why you're seeing cannibalism going on nowadays. Snortin' bath salts?
Literally eating people?
Seriously?

No way around it, there definitely an EMERGENCY situation going on...

Something 2 think about for sure...

Yep!


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Ass-Kickin' 101.

There are just some things misunderstood until after the fact. 
Similar 2 a child learning not 2 play with fire after getting burned that one dredful time. 
Usually it takes only once but for others...well, I guess the curiosity continues 2 kill the cat.

Speaking of cats, new addition "Slappy" (who's a mere 3 months) 
finds it upon himself regularly 2 venture out into the backwoods of Georgia with no regard....(meow, meow, meow)

Despite the awesome wisdom of it's owner, 
(**clear throat) he makes it a priority 2 see the world from the backwoods perspective only 2 return bruised & beaten.... (again).

What happened Slappernator? (That's his nickname if you're wonderin')
Chances are it's the crew of hillbilly felines awaiting in the deep shadows for a crash course in ass kickin' 101.
"Dayum Tammy....maybe we outta keep him in the pad...."

That was several weeks ago.

Since, with a visit 2 the vet for battle wounds & 2 ass kickins later, we think he understands.

(Well maybe...)
Guess his name is fittin' for the ocassion getting "Slapped" around & all...lmao!


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Rotate.


Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

Love.


Finally I've grown 2 realize the importance of cultivating a healthy & lasting relationship. 

In prior post, I've made known of the need for commitment, effort & of course responsibility 
(in no specific order).
Safe 2 say that there's no such thing as having all the answers but majority rules.....for the more I know the better.
Simply put, it gets easier in time.
Ok, ok....not meaning 2 appear sappy or anything...just making myself a personal reminder note that everyone just so happens 2 read from time 2 time.

That's fine though. No shame... 
just getting better. 

Yep!


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Taste.

Just thinkin' after watchin' local based channel 9 Chicago news....

Some of my most favorite times in good ole' Chicago was the Taste. 
A time when the fireworks were plenty, the concerts were free & the food was...well, less expensive.

Now here we are @ a time where Chicago's greed & poor local government has destroyed such a rememberable occasion just 2 fill their own pockets. 

Many of my childhood memories stem back 2 Grant Park, the several dozen food vendors & the variation of people from all walks of life....

Now, there's absolutely nothing...Not a dayum thing!!!! 
Oh well, it was good while it lasted. 

Once again, Chicago puts it's people last & themselves first. 
Shame.

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Loved Most.

Personalized Signature.


Sharing your artistic perspective with the world can tell a plenty about who you are.
 It's a personalized signature authenticated unlike any other. 
No matter how often you try, never would it be the same....

....and if for some odd reason it happens 2 be...
I'll just make it better.

Yep!...

Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Untamed.


Despite rules & guidelines that supposedly keep us in place, we're here 2 follow our very own heart & mind.
We've been completely boxed with boundaries & proximities specifically programmed 2 follow the status quo... 
anything other than that would be considered uncivilized. (hmph!)
Eventually there comes a point when much is revealed & that we as individuals realize that we were meant 2 be... "UNTAMED". 

Yep!...

Peace!....with 2 fingers;)

Erasers.


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Sharin' With Tractors.

Everyday that passes here in the south brings about a clearer understanding of how everything works. 
Driving for instance....

...gridlocked traffic, insane folk who appear 2 be in such a rush for absolutely nothing, a stop sign on every single block, cameras @ intersections lookin' for someone 2 fine....

...then here in the backroads of Georgia where you're forced 2 share the road with 10 mph tractors...seriously? 
A tractor?...lol

Not that I'm complaining or anything but dayum!...10 mph?....
kinda funny actually.
Rather that than a ticket...Yep!

Ok. I'm done.


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)

Who?

We decided 2 take a quick trip back down memory lane @ a time 
when things were new. 

So many things have been revealed since the 
swift understanding  that there's much more 
than meets the eye.
Noticing that everyone has a story 2 share 
& none other is better than the next. 
The details & eventual outcome is what 
makes it all so dayum special. 

Similar 2 a set of fingerprints where 
no 2 is alike & that alone 
should be celebrated.
 Make your mark & be more.....
"WHO"?.....(smirk!)...
you.


Peace!...with 2 fingers;)







Can & Will.
