I hope y'all had a happy Thanksgiving; a trip to 'Billy Deer Camp'

December 5, 2013

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving day holiday. We did at “The Adams' Family Compound.”
I went to Walmart that night for its Black Friday sale, and it was crazy. Everybody was on edge. I was just going in with everybody, having fun and trying to “lighten” the mood, and some woman didn't like me too much. She started to come after me, but they talked her out of it. I dodged a bullet, and I was spared the embarrassment of being beaten up by a woman in front of Walmart.

Happy birthday to my mom, sister

December 5, 2013

Last week, I typed my column in a stupor after camping for four nights while nearly freezing to death due to me being sick. Well, in my dumbfounded state, I forgot to put my mom’s, Elaine Midgley, birthday in my column.
Well, happy birthday mom. Your Thanksgiving dinner was awesome, and I hope (despite my oversight) you had a great birthday. To everyone that reads this, please tell my mom happy belated birthday so I can get out of her doghouse.
