Post that round trip flight…

life-is-a-box-crayonsIt’s good to be back! I’ve had fun – I have.
I flew out to Dallas and had a Fam blast!

I did fly coach but it felt like first class.
Solo: I handled my business and I busted my ass.

Once I got to the DFW my car rental and hotel were ready.
I with my laptop, a mop and creative energy was steady.

So much happened that all of my tools and skills were on deck.
I was pretty deep off in the woods though strong was my connect.

CLo came through – Mr. Logistics doesn’t play.
CLo is Carlos Ramierez of Choice Valet.

Stephanie came through and then the two of us #CameUp.
She’s my HS alumni living in the Dalworthington cut.

Joe G turned out and brought CJ with him.
CJ is that unbiased beacon when things get dim.

Joe G is my rock, my baby brother, my go-to guy.
The love in the DF-Dub always gets me high.

I’m elevated, I’m happy and it’s good to be home.
I learned so much in Dallas – increased the size of my dome.

From Arizona to Cali, to Dallas and New York:
I have a thing going on between my arrive and depart.

I was in town because Healthcare Workers could not deny
That my dads health is in the last stages (prostate cancer) & he may die.

I was encouraged and didn’t cry but took a flight out
I showed up in person to see what the “hoopla” was about.

Dads homestead was a wreck – there’s no room for any border.
My dear old dad’s square footaged pad was decorated by a hoarder.

Me? Besides a little OCD, I think cleaning is quite therapeutic.
So when I saw the periodical fuss and tinsels of dust – to clean up? I couldn’t refuse it.

It was a HGTV scene to be seen – how I transformed that place.
I hired a young male team, strong and lean – then we put a smile on Dads face.

I restored that place.

Suddenly dad sat up, smiled, and started thanking me a bit.
Then he reverted to his usual self and started talking cash -ish. 😀

It was good to have his spirit back. Helping him did a lot for me,
I’m Qui
That blush invoking she, that flight to Dallas did a world of good for me.
Ooo Wee.

Post that round trip flight…
Fam: I’m feeling alright.

“After Dak & Dem Boys…”

qui-dlalas-hatsTuesday came quick
Like a schtick holding an Acme brick

Looking for a window.
All weekend long I was unavail, on the ‘to and fro,’

So the Schtick missed me –
Then goodness located and kissed me.

I came up on a ticket to a ballers avion.
It was Cinci vs The Cowboys at AT&T stadium.

‘Too happy to attend, I decked myself out in the proper wear;
I was blue and silvered down and not a hater voiced a care.

Unlike when I’m in Chandler, AZ — absolutely no one in the dome stared.
In Arlington, TX loving DEM BOYS via fashion – is aways fair!

I was enveloped in love and that comradely protection.
I was high as a kite in the #NoseBleed section. 😜


The jumbo tron was my friend and Ezekial Elliot was on flight.
I held the armrests of my seat – I had to warm up to “the height.”
But after a couple of touchdowns everything was alright.

The “No-No” — was a chant about Romo and shoot
I believe they were saying “Where’s Romo?
Romo WHO!”

But then again I sat on The Bengals side so that I could view the Cowboys bench.
Other than the Romo chant – they kicked Bengal cats and took a Sunday win.

It was ☝🏾️a good time had ☝🏾with good people in tow
Still I couldn’t wait to get back to you, yo!

How are you? How’ve you been?
Did you bet on a game? Did you take home a win?

Did you Fantasy Football participate? I know the competition is hot.
Was Zeke Elliot on your team – did his numbers hit your spot?

A good time in the DFW is what I got for a couple of hours of transport by air,
I’m Qui
Happy Tuesday to thee I’ve got renewed energy in my hair.



It felt great!

TannersSoulSo I lost my beloved TANNER on June 3rd, 2016 after a long road trip to and from California – Beverly Hills, in fact. Tanner was a real PERRO DE OCIO (Dog Of Leisure); he was my roll and my road dog for the last 3.5 years (#RescueDog) until a sugar-free gummy bear took him out.


Yes. I do believe a sugar-free gummy bear is the likely culprit that expedited Tanners exit (over a span of 3-weeks time).

I have a 3-year old baby girl/toddler and sugar-free gummy bear fruit snacks had been common in my home for a while. Not anymore. Sugar-free products give little dogs cancer — almost instantaneously. We didn’t allow Tanner to eat table food or gummy bears, however, if the toddler dropped one (and that’s highly likely) and Tanner eyed it before I could get to it,  well….

My heart was broken and has been on the mend every since for a little canine love. Yesterday with urgency, my next door neighbor insisted that we make a run to a couple of animal shelters (Maricopa Animal Care Center and AZ Humane Society) and started eyeing dogs for a possible love connection. I was reluctant on the inside, at first, but with Vicky pushing me and my legs following her –  I went along and… dallas-day1-080116

Good morning pet lovers, meet DALLAS. He is the newest member of my family and I won’t lie to you and say it was easy picking him out. Because it wasn’t. I just couldn’t bring more than one home, so… Dallas was the noisy one in lock-up and while proving that old saying to be true, “The squeaky wheel gets the grease,” I truly picked him because I miss that little dog BIG BOSS noise and the playful joy they render. Yes, Dallas is a chihuahua too, however, while Tanner was nearly 10 years and weighing only 2.5 pounds, Dallas is 3 and weighs 8.4. Dallas is mixed. With what? we don’t know, because he was found wandering. Dallas is likely a stray. I’m pretty sure he’s missed by his previous family. He’s housebroken, yappy, loveable and he get’s along fantastically with my 4-month old mane coon cat, LANDAN.

I’m orignially from the DFW metroplex (Dallas-Fort Worth, TX) and I miss home a little bit. I figured me and the caged wanderer had that in common and that perhaps we could build a home here in Phoenix together. My figuring paid off – I’m in love and I think he loves me back.


So yesterday has passed and today is anew
I’m On to Dallas – bidding Tanner adieu.

Landan is still in the house and yesterday she turned 4-months old,
by the weekend she’ll be “fixed” – I put that on my last cats soul. 😀


Landan & Dallas star in: THE NAP

My last female cat’s name was Kit’Ten and she has since ‘gone on to glory
but not before birthing 20 kittens – this can’t be Landan’s story.

Like I said, she is duly getting her “fix” this week.
As for “Landan vibing with Dallas” – the union is new; seems sweet.

She wants to play even more and he isn’t used to cats.
As different as the two are, they find commonality in “the nap.”

They’re the NEW Garfield & Odi — these two make me laugh.
With these two in my life, my heart’s on “the heal” real fast.

Before we moved On to Dallas, the previous weeks were rough,
I’m Qui
Missing Tanner – OUi! Thank God for #RescueShelters and new love.

We found DALLAS at Maricopa Animal Care Center.
Visit an animal shelter near you and fall in love. After all LOVE is a four-letter word –  Share it with a four-legged friend. ❤
