Paul, I love you!

I got this in an e-mail from a dear friend, Paul, today! God, she *be* looking over you. So remember – a big, Black lesbian has “got your back.” In the words of my friend LeMay (another member of the God as BBL Church), “Don’t make me come down there!’) His view of God is…

Trip to Michaels

Yesterday, I spent some cash – but not a whole heck of a lot:) I picked up some things I needed ….. and bought some yarn. But I was good – I got acrylic yarn – good old Red Heart. Hey, why not? More bang for the buck. I also figure a lot of the…

Just have about five minutes (really 1) before I have to get ready for church – choir is singing at 11:15 – have to warm up around 10:30 – so not much time to get something in here. Not much news here. We were planning to be on the road to NY by now, but…
