The day of the clink party has come and gone. I just didn't realize it would be our illustrious former mayor out in front leading the "I'm too happy about going to jail parade" in court. I could not believe the jovial manner he conducted himself in. He was laughing, smirking, and hugging his wife right up until the judge told him his seven political funds were going to be drained and he was not allowed to use that money for personal gain. The look on his face and the audible gasp from his supporters was high drama. This gravy train is over. He displayed so many reminders of why he ended up here in the first place. Read here and here. His father's parting comment rendered me speechless regarding how he felt "like thousands of black fathers watching their sons be railroaded into jail". What? Perhaps we have an explanation for all this...the apple does not fall far from the tree.

Just What I Needed

Um...this is a shout out, full of gratitude, to my sister in law for providing me with material that made me throw back my head, slap my knees with both hands, and laugh with reckless abandon multiple times today. Who knows why my brother turned down the Peter Pan costume. Me thinks Pan's skirt would have been a titch longer than the mullet wearing superhero's felt shorts! I am just sayin'!!!


Say it isn't so! A tragedy of epic proportions was made known to me today. It appears the pink and white animal cookies will be no more. NPR says it's true. Read here. I can't imagine my life without them. Go get them all and quick. These are "MINE FAVORITE" according to my nephew when he was four years old. What's a family to do without "MINE FAVORITE" cookies! There are other sports related tragedies occurring on a weekly basis these days....but I can't even bring myself to blog about it. Traumatized doesn't even begin to describe it. Read here.
