I O U…





Sorry that I short-changed you guys yesterday…I had a full Friday. I went from work to the Bronx to meet up with my girl Joy, so we could go to Manhattan. Our friend Celeste’s belated birthday dinner was at Dallas BBQ’s. Since Celeste moved to Georgia last year, we’ve barely seen her. This was actually my first time seeing her since her move. It was great to see her…very brief, yet a very cool “butterfly” weekend.





We enjoyed ourselves immensely…taking pics, eating, and laughing. After dinner, Joy and I made our way back to her place in the BX and made a bee line for the bed. Today, I attended a cotillion for “Golden Divas”…a group of cherished ladies in their Golden Years. It was a beautiful dedication to four ladies who have been active in the community and church. This gala took place at my grandmother’s church and was put upon very nicely. There was a musical/dance selection that had me on the verge of tears. An older woman of 50+ did a wonderful interpretive dance to Maya Angelou’s poem, “Phenomenal Woman”. She was so very graceful and expressive. I was impressed.  The débutante danced with their escorts.  Here’s a quick view of them dancing:





I was so tired. I hit the ground running Friday morning and didn’t stop until I reached my room going on 7pm.


Do you think I lied down? Nope. Still up…fighting sleep like a baby. I hate that yesterday’s blog escaped me. It was unavoidable though. Since I didn’t have the good sense to actually write it BEFORE leaving…fitting in time to write was damn near impossible.


So, here I am…writing as the clock turns 12am (actually going into a THIRD day of non-blog).  I had to post SOMETHING. My mind is too tired to give a damn about how lengthy and substantial this thing is. At least I gave you pics. LOL


Here’s another. I took this on my way to the Bronx on the train. One of my faves. Good night 🙂
