*re-post from 2008*

These words can be found on a painting that hangs on the wall of my childhood home...


was made from the rib of a man
she was not created from his head ~ to the top of him

nor from his feet ~ to be stepped upon

She was made
from his side ~ to be equal to him:

from beneath his arm ~ to be protected by him:

near his heart ~ to be loved by him


Funny...I never understood what this meant when I looked at the painting when I was 13. It makes much more sense when I look at it now.

off tha dome

random thoughts...

I am tempted to go the house that is around the corner from me and say..."Hey's January. You can turn your Christmas lights off and take them down."

the football season is almost over. i'm not happy about that

government shutdown, huh? this makes NO sense.

i'm down for free apps on my iPhone. if it's free, then it's for me

I think my feet have finally recovered from the walking that I did at Disney World during Christmas

I don't give free apps a long leash. if I don't vibe to the app quickly, i'll delete it

nah, i'm not watching the Grammy's

i'm DEFINITELY not watching the Super Bowl halftime show with Justin Timberlake

my kids were out of school on last Monday. then they went to school on Tuesday. and then they were out for the next 3 days from this...3 inches of snow and ice (my backyard)

kim and kayne named their new baby...Chicago. Chicago West. i'm pretty sure that kid will be mad as hell 13 years from now

remember when your momma told you as a kid "Put a hat on when you go outside. You don't wanna catch a cold." has this theory ever been proven?

shoutout to this spot that was within walking distance when I was a student at South Carolina State University called Mr Wings. you could get 10 wings for $2.50. ahhhh...the good ole days

PSA...if your pipes are frozen, don't be like the dude on the news who decided to use a blowtorch to "warm" up his pipes and burned his house down. smh

when you were in your chemistry class in high far away did you sit from the smartest kid in your class?

it's annoying to listen to a podcast and people just get on and start talking without introducing themselves to the listener

the Minnesota Miracle was unreal. in all of the years that I've watched football...I've never seen a playoff game end like this

for the record...all Marcus Williams had to do was to tackle Diggs inbounds. if he over

is there any food that tastes worse than liver? ewwwwww

is it just me or do the Golden State Warriors look like they could sweep a 7 game series against the Cavs

Jan 20th, 2017...the inauguration...

Jan 20th, 2018...government shutdown. you do the math

is it just me or does it feel like this administration has been in office for 5 years???

I think I need to learn how to play Smooth by D'Angelo on the piano. that song...and that album...are sooooooooo cold

new me? yeah, right! some folks are still doing the same dumb crap that they did last year

i'm from the "go-together era". the era when you asked a girl (either face to face) or via a letter..."if she would go with you"

the concept of writing a letter may seem strange to some of you because you just know how to send text messages

the chewing gum that costs $.05 loses its flavor after 3 bites

for the record, when I asked a girl to "go with me" they always said yes. lol

do malls have arcades anymore?

Minneapolis will the kids say...LIT for the Super Bowl. lol. I worked/lived there in 2010. it's a beautiful city. it's just frigid. shoutout to The Loop & Electric Fetus...I hung out there a lot

back to Kim & Kanye. their children's names are North West, Saint West, and now Chicago West. let's hope they are done having kids

kissing is underrated

that bottom lip...Erykah Badu sang about it. you've gotta kiss it...especially if they can kiss

Mo'Nique Conan O'Brien, and George Lopez are all incredibly NOT funny to me

do you think Michael Jackson and Prince are playing together in heaven? I do

it was 5 degrees on last Wednesday here in Atlanta. by was 69 degrees. go figure

I've learned not to complain about the weather here. it's gonna change anyway

with football season ending soon, it'll give me time to catch up on some tv shows

I've never seen Game of Thrones nor The Walking Dead...nor do i plan to see them

looking forward to checking out Black Panther

Freestyle Friday - I Ain't No Joke

I Ain't No Joke

by Eric B & Rakim

verse 2...

I got a question, as serious as cancer
Who can keep the average dancer
Hyper as a heart attack nobody smiling
Cuz you're expressing the rhyme that I'm styling
This is what we all sit down to write
You can't make it so you take it home, break it and bite
Use pieces and bits of all the hip-hop hits
Get the style down pat then it's time to switch
Put my tape on pause and add some more to yours
Then you fake it you're ready for the neighborhood chores
The E-M-C-E-E don't even try to be
When you come up to speak, don't even lie to me
You like to exaggerate, dream and imaginate
Then change the rhyme around, that can aggravate me
So when you see me come up, freeze
Or you'll be one of those 7 MC's
They think that I'm a new jack but only if they knew that
They who think wrong are they who can't do that
Style that I'm doing, they might ruin
Patterns and paragraphs based on you and
Your offbeat DJ, if anything he play
Sound familiar, I'll wait til E say
Play 'em, so I'ma have to diss and bro
You could get a smack for this, I ain't no joke

you can listen to this song is in its entirety here...

2017 Year in Review (pictures)

The Year in review (in pictures)


We brought in the new year in my hometown...Florence, SC to spend some time with my parents and then stopped to see my brother, Damon.

Me, Deion, and Kameron went to the Georgia Dome and got a chance to see the Falcons beat the Seahawks on their way to the Super Bowl


My uncle, Harry Carson, was recognized at the Super Bowl. This was a very proud moment for me and my family.

Skyler and I hit the Daughter/Father dance

My grandma, Opal, passed away in January. While I was sad to see her leave us, she was here for 95 years. We'd all be pretty lucky if we are around that long. One of the beautiful things about her leaving us was getting a chance to see my family...some of whom I had not seen since I was a kid. And some who I had only heard about. It was a truly a blessing.


Sherice got a year

Deion hit the prom with his girlfriend


Deion's cotillion was dope

Brandon, Skyler and Kameron enjoyed visiting my mom

Time flies...


Deion graduated from high school and made us extremely proud


I found some of my old videotapes and found one with Deion (age 4) and Kameron (almost 1). Seeing these tapes brought a smile to my face and great memories. I think somebody snuck some onions in the room at some point...

I found this picture of both my grandmothers. My maternal grandmother, Gladys (left), and my paternal grandmother, Opal (right). This is the only picture that I have of them together. Gladys passed away when I was 6. These were two of the sweetest women in the world. I hope I've made them proud. And yes...the lil guy in the picture is me.


The family vacation in Hilton Head

By the end of July, this little dude was off to college. Where did the time go? One minute he was on my shoulders...the next minute he's in college. I couldn't have been prouder.


The duo celebrated their birthdays on consecutive days. Kameron turned 15 on August 8th and Deion turned 18 on August 9th

Me at the Braves game with my office. It had to be 150,000 degrees that day.


Me, Brandon, and Kameron toured The Benz, the new billion dollar stadium for the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United

Sherice and I celebrated 17 years of marriage

Princess Skyler turned 6


We got a chance to see Deion and his band play several times. That was a thrill for all of us


The kid was home from college for a week for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed having him here...even though we didn't see him that much. lol

Thanksgiving lunch with Skyler


We had 3 inches of snow on December 9th. I don't think I've ever seen it snow in December in the 20 years that I've been living in Atlanta

More importantly...on December 9th...this guy turned 45

Brandon turned 11 on December 10th and became the coolest 11 year old on the planet.

2017 was a great year. There were ups and downs. Ultimately, it was a great year for us all because we all got to see it. May 2018 be a year filled with blessings and prosperity for you and yours
