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,

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.

Closet Cases - Hosted by LLOYD BOSTON

HGTV has an awesome show called “CLOSET CASES” hosted by LLOYD BOSTON and it has nothing to with your sexual preference, however it has EVERYTHING to do with YOUR PRESENCE – period. Ladies Love Lloyd would be the perfect name for him if he were a rapper. lol! Lloyds specialty is ‘getting your wardrobe RIGHT. If your outward style screams exile — you might need LLOYD. lol.

I know I need Lloyd. I was watching Closet Cases this morning and saw him trash a dress that his subject had in her closet…it looked alot like my old prom dress – that I still have in my closet. Mind you I can’t wear it but the subject was currently utilizing hers in wardrobe rotation, (when the occasion called for). What “occassion” calls for a retro prom dress? All the same…my wardrobe is dusty and I’m not in denial. In fact I’m eager to shop and move forward. So I’m watching Lloyd do his thing and this brother has a lot of panache. I like his style, relative approach and delivery. I like his subtle but obvious way of cracking on bad taste with his eyes and facial expressions – clearly not needing to say a word.

Oprah already knows him. Sure! O has a thing for style.
Oh yes I did my research & they go back quite a while.

Ooo Child!
I’m shame to admit I’ve been so negligent.

I’m close to wearing skins, leaf shoes and accessories made of bone.
A fashionable slump is an easy come up, when life is good and you work from home.
Ahhhh. The Pro’s and Con’s of a Web Mastering Don. lol!
(I believe poor fashion was on the list — it should be)

I really don’t put a whole lot into shopping labels at big mall chain stores
I’m one that likes to just be me – if it’s comfy & protects me from the elements: I SCORE!

According to Lloyd (& A Tribe Called Quest): I shall not be so bland @ any point in time.
Thus I will clean out my closet, utilize a nice wallet and update my fashionable shine.
j/k Wishes are often verbalized through a writers (writst’ly) sublime… 😉

In the meantime I’ll be watching Lloyd instructing me on how to be visually pleasant,
I’m Qui
Diggin’ the view of HGTV — I guess my idea of comfort went out with the peasants. lol!
