Alabama or Bust

Well, I went on my trip to Alabama. I left NY’s Westchester Airport in White Plains around 6:30pm on June 20th, and made it to Alabama by 10:30 that night. Dionne’s Birthday Weekend was officially in progress.

Getting off the escalators after deplaning and seeing Mama and Dionne standing there was so cool. All those weeks of talking about it, planning and waiting…were no more. We were together finally.

Our weekend was too short. I felt like I could’ve stayed. Saturday we went to the cemetery to see Dionne’s sister. Before we got there…a car swerved out of control after it’s tire blew. It was a couple of cars in front of us, and had anyone hit it…we’d probably be laid up in a hospital or dead right now. Dionne was seriously shaken up, but we made it to the cemetery to do what we came for. We then went to eat at the China Buffet where Mama ended up in the corna twice, Dionne and I…once. LOL We’re too much. We then went to Birmingham’s Botanical Garden where we witnessed a wedding in progress. The bride’s gown was GORGEOUS! But, HELL if it wasn’t the quickest wedding we ever saw. LOL We took pics and then left to go back to the house.

The next day…we got up and went to a place called Scrubbs BBQ where Dionne’s dad had paid for some food to be picked up. We drove out there, where the place is basically a “house or shack” behind someone’s home, set up like a drive-thru. We took the food home and then went to a mall area called “Bridge Street” where Dionne had her ring fixed and we sat outside while Mama danced to a one man band’s strummings. Mama, Kasey and I put our feet in the fountain and then we left. I napped a little before getting up, eating and joining the family in a water gun fight. Dionne’s girls (Kasey,11 and Kennedy,5) were on Mama’s team…while Dionne’s son, Jordon, 13 was on the team with Dionne, her fiance’ Teddy, and me. We ALL got soaked head to toe. We ran around that yard spraying each other like we were crazy. The kids laughed with their Me Mah (their name for Mama) and were so happy.

Dionne opened her gift that Mama bought…a wireless keyboard and mouse. She received a Louis Vuitton purse the week before from our sister, Netty! (Which she rarely put down) Her “stepdaddy” bought her an amethyst ring…and I was just one big ole gift. LOL

Dionne taught me to drive that night. Yep, she knew that I had never learned because of my Narcolepsy, so she put me in the front seat and let me drive around her huge backyard, to the end of the driveway, backing into the yard again and parking the car finally. It was amazing. All I kept saying was, “I WANNA GO FAST!” LOL

Taking Mama to the airport the next morning was agony. We all cried like babies. Mama wouldn’t even let us stay…she shooed us off. Even after finding out that her flight was delayed for 2hrs, she wouldn’t let us turn around and sit with her. Dionne, the kids and I, were all sad, especially because we knew that it was my turn next.

I didn’t want to come home…but, I am sure that I will make a return trip to Alabama. Hopefully Mama and Dionne will be making a trip to the North come fall. Either way, I feel blessed to have them as family. I truly enjoyed myself. I have a home there.

Moments With Mahogany…and Chap…and Mama…lol


What it do, what it Do!! Alrighty…last night, I visited Mah’s 2nd show since returning to the Blogtalk arena. Her topic was “Love, Sex, Money and the drama behind it…”, where she correlated the way marriages/relationships affect money affairs…how sex is used (and it is) in love to get what you want…and drama.

I came with Butterfly Effect who made her appearance and then fluttered off to bed. Mah’s friends, Toshiko and Cocoa Carrington were in the building and the Mama came through, calling in to shut it down as usual. Later da Monstah and a few others came through, including DownSouthGaGirl. Mah asked me to call in so I did, which was cool.

One of the biggest things I do agree with the Mama on is that in a marriage a woman should hold her man down. PERIOD. Sex should never be denied, his ego should be stroked and she should definitely feel like in spite of being the one at home (if she does stay home), the wife should still feel valued and given control of the family and home’s affairs.

Then we headed off to Mr. Chap’s place over at the morning show site and had an after party, where the discussion continued. Somehow, Mama put me on the hot seat about boo-boo AKA SHIT and then farting, then farting during sex…then SQUIRTING! She decided to out me and say I’d never squirted based on my answer of no farting during sex. (still laughing at that) I was totally embarrassed, but it was all good. Then Mah, Mama and Chap roasted me good on a few rounds of “Gimme 5” which I sucked at. (blame it on the late night hour of 2am) LOL

I enjoyed myself with them. A good time was had and there was no question that we began winging it after a while. REAL fun is never scripted!

That’s Whats Up!
