To A Great Man And A Big Inspiration

Happy hump day my homies and homettes. I hope that you enjoy your morning, noon, evening or night to the fullest, because we are here one second, then the next we are not. Also, make sure to keep your eyes on the BIG prize, staying clean and or sober.

On Monday, while I was at the salt mines, I got a call from my wife to inform me, that a retired neighbor of ours from across the street had passed away, due to complications from a fall. To be honest, the news really shocked me, because from the time that I was a kid, I really admired him and his wife. Because I used to see them go to and come from work, being a quiet couple and never getting into trouble. Every time I had the chance, I sat down and had long conversations with him.

My wife always told me that every time that he saw her, he told her that he admired me, because as he put it, the type of man that I have always been. He always told her, that he saw me coming from work, walking my dog and never getting into trouble. I believe that during one of our conversations, I told him that I admired him, because he was one of the few people in my block, who inspired me, to be who I am today. As a matter of fact, ever since I was a teenager, I have always enjoyed talking to the elders, because they always have something to teach me. We will all miss him.

With that said, I am Audi 5000 y’all!
