a reservation at a prominent resort booked–me and my girl
excited for fun in the mountains with nature no brouhaha, please
Yesterday, I booked the hotel for Labor Day weekend in Asheville, NC. Jernee and me will be staying at the Crowne Plaza Resort. I got a great deal using Snaptravel that saved me around $260.00. I had to jump on that deal; it would have been ludicrous not to. I am excited, and I hope we’ll be able to see this thing through. I worry with these rising numbers for the Delta variant of the Coronavirus, but I am going to remain hopeful about it.
After high school, you knew where your heart was — far away from me and everyone else who loved you but for a greater cause . . .
The Air Force claimed you for twenty years and with each one that passed, I further admired my friend who desired to do something that scared the shit out of me.
You have always been a tackler of the difficult, shifting out of comfort zones and pulling me away from things I clung to for safety. Risks were your forte, they still are.
As a dreamer, basking in the glow of others’ spontaneous events, I looked into your world but could not keep my feet in it.
I am proud of you; you are the epitome of superhuman, Mom de jure, and peace when this chaotic world rages forth.
Which birthday was it of mine when you told the workers at the Japanese restaurant I was to be celebrated and for fun and to play along, I had to do the funky chicken while they sang?
I nearly fainted but you powered me on and my reservation about publicly embarrassing myself ended up being the fun I needed at that moment.
I wonder if you knew that. I’m sure you knew that.
You were the person who appeared out of nowhere; on leave, ready for whatever came our way. You made dreams come true without much effort. Now that we are aging, we still remain; young at heart and full of life.
We have changed but we have not changed and for the love of everything good and true, this is a testament that will outlast us.
Our story is one that makes me smile. We should keep turning the pages.
For us here in the United States of America, it’s summertime and in various states within this nation, temperatures are on the rise. Summertime, although a season I’d rather do without, gifts us with a ton of fun to be had.
When summer comes to your area/country, what do you like to do most? What do you love most about summer? What do you hate most about it? Please share your thoughts on summer using three words only.
traveling without restrictions
I truly miss doing the above and I hope one day soon, I’ll be able to get back to my travels without worry and wonder and being far too concerned with rising Coronavirus cases, but mostly — I just want the world to be safe again from this virus. Writers, you are a creative bunch and I’d love to see what you can do with this topic using three words only. So, the challenge? Tell me about your summer experiences; likes & dislikes in just three words.
Let’s have some fun and please, bring it!
Music? Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince, Summertime:
It is one of the qualities I find most important in the people I allow in my circle: loyalty. If you are not able to support me or stand by my side when hard times arise — we may not last as friends. And in turn, I should be able to do the same for you — be there, support you, lift you up when you’re feeling down, and help you in any way that I can. I don’t have to ask of these things from Jernee. She is my full support system and live-in love magnet. If ever I fall into a fit of tears, my girl is always right there to press against me, cuddle, and paw at my tears. I get from her what I need — I always hope she’s getting from me what she needs.
So, the challenge? Express loyalty using three words only. What does loyalty mean to you? Is it important? Was anyone ever disloyal in your life — how’d that affect you?
undeniable . . . true love.
Writers: let’s get creative, shall we? Express loyalty using just three words. You can do this! I know you can.
Please, bring it!
And of course, there’s music. The Brothers Johnson, I’ll Be Good to You
