Photo & Song

Photo: Read St in Baltimore, Maryland
"Grab your coat and get your hat
Leave your worries on the doorstep
Life can be so sweet
On the sunny side of the street
Cant you hear the pitter-pat
And that happy tune is your step
Life can be complete
On the sunny side of the street..."
Song: Sunny Side of the Street [as sung by Louis Armstrong]

I really love that song. It's just a feel good song and who could sing a feel good song better than Satchmo? *smile* This has been a busy week for me, but the weekend is finally here. Also, this week I was accepted on the Kenyan Blogs Webring. It's a network of Kenyans and friends of Kenyans who network and share ideas. It's an extended blog family. I'm not Kenyan, but I am a friend. So, I'd like to thank my friends, Uaridi and Mshairi for introducing me to the family. Well, I hope that you all enjoy your weekend. Be safe! Me? I'm going to see family this weekend and check out the Super Bowl. Peace~

I love the photo, Stephen! I haven't had the pleasure of listening to this particular song by Louis Armstrong, but I do love his music, nonetheless! Congrats on being accepted into the Kenyan blogroll!! That is an honor! =) Enjoy your weekend, your family & the super bowel!! Me, I'll be reading & studying this weekend! No football for me! lol

Wow, Kenyan friends! I'll go and give a look...
Anyway, maybe because of my bad english, maybe because I'm silly, but I think it's because your writing is so good... I really believed that Stevie was YOUR SON!
I asked you about the comic character because I thought to dedicate a new drawing for Little Stevie... Well, I'll do it for Big Stevie, ahahahah!! ;-)

Anyway mafia is still a problem in South Italy. But definetly not as it was in the past. Anyway crime problem is increasing in Naple in particular. But authorities are trying to stop it. So, don't worry if you wanna cross the Ocean and come and eat wonderful spaghetti!
No war zone. ;-D

LOL!! "Super Bowel" :) Your funny! Studying is a good thing. Yes, I feel honored that they accepted my request. The network has some really good people. Enjoy your weekend!

What's up bro! I appreciate the compliment on my writing. I am forever working on perfecting that craft. I enjoy telling a story and it is a real challenge to write something that people will want to read. I enjoy that challenge. I am also going to enjoy the Kenyan Webring.

A character dedicated to Lil' Stevie would be great! Let me know when it's up. Thanks for the current event about the Mafia. I hope that things get better in that region. Peace and have a great weekend!

Enjoy your weekend. I can hear Satchmo singing this one. He must have seen that same street the same day you did. Great snap.

I'm feeling alright Bess. I didn't say I don't like Gates but man oh man was he ever tacky. I didn't expect that. No sir not one bit. Now Oprah. Well that's another story...
