Getting rocked by The Sunday spirit

Pastor Hickey began his Sunday sermons at Allen Temple AME church like many black pastors across America. They began in a low, calm tone.

It seems like some want Covid to win this war

Anne is not one of my tip top of the line friends only because she lives hundreds of miles away in a small Oklahoma town which prevents us from doing silly things together to bond a better friendship.

The second Covid shot has been a breeze so far

Wife Abs cocked her head and looked me straight in the eye. She does this sometimes when she is fishing for the truth.
