It’s been a mighty long time, so allow me to recap what we’ve learned so far:
-I got a visit from the “health department” back in October. Well, I complied suffice it to say. I guess it comes with the territory. Fret not though, the show must go on…
-History was made on the 4th November as we all know. Looks as though all of our persistence paid off. Thank God because my bags, and my wife’s bags too, were pack’d…
-The server was acting a little wacky there for a minute but things are somewhat back to normal now, knock on wood (knocking on my forehead)…
-I survived midterms, but now comes the term paper and final exams in about 2-3 weeks. Once it’s all behind me, I can move forward with the changes. I’m so stoked about it, and believe me, you’ll all be pleasantly surprised.
I could go on and on, but I won’t bore you too much. I have to also state my surprise over the fact that the Thanksgiving special from last year is still and has been consistently getting views. Time got the better of me so I didn’t get to organise one this year, but I promise I will make up for it in a future episode.
FInally, another birthday is behind me. Leslie and I head a really sinful dinner at our favourite eatery up the street. The seafood trilogy was to die for, and even at the tender age of 40 (I don’t believe I made it this far, I still open up presents with the giddy smile that I used to have as a kid when my mom would give me the latest LPs! I spent a week souping up ol’ Bessie’s replacement. With lots of food stored away in the pantry, it’s about time I whipped up another Funk Fix! This one was supposed to be finished to play at the two installments of Fufu Sunday with Mike and Meggan (we love you), but again, time got the better of me. Well, I am keeping it warm on the stove so line up and grab a heaping helping of this heavy duty selection of heat that I cooked on the fly. To you my faithful friends and esteemed colleagues, thanks as always for showing your love. Here’s some love right back at’cha…

and now for the closing commentary…
Let’s hope that things continue to go well on so many fronts. I need to take my leave for a little while longer so I can get my shit together. I plan to return just before Christmas, knock on wood… in the meantime, for those of you who are new to the experience, please feel free to check out the back catalogue. Due to storage issues, the old posts won’t last long. My day off was productive so now I’m gonna prepare for a long two weeks of cramming. Wish me luck. I’ll see you all as soon as I can but in the meantime, have a good week and please be safe during the “holidaze”. Notice I didn’t talk about it yet. Soon kids, soon. I’ll see ya.
Peace and blessings.
I must give a big thank you to all the usual suspects, and pease be sure to read on to the next entry…
