---COMMUNICATION? WHAT'S THAT?????????



YA KNOW...

THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT IS COMMUNICATING...SHIT...IT AIN'T THAT HARD...

THIS PIC IS A PRIME EXAMPLE AND A PRETTY COOL STORY...

BEFORE I GO INTO THE STORY, TAKE A LOOK AT THE PICTURE AGAIN. SHE KNEW WHAT SHE HAD-WHAT SHE NEEDED,-HOW MUCH WAS DONE AND HOW MUCH WASN'T!-WHO SHE NEEDED TO CALL AND WHAT WAS LEFT TO DELIVER TO WHAT CHURCH....

PLANNING FOR THIS LITTLE PARTY THAT CONSUMED NOT ONLY THE HOUSE BUT THE FRONT AND BACK PORCH (COCKTAILS AND SMOKING IN THE BACK), THE HORSESHOE PIT, THE FRONT YARD AND PORTIONS OF THE STREET AND ALL OF THE NEIGHBORS YARDS, EVEN IF ONLY ONE OR TWO PEOPLE AT A TIME...

SO ANYWAY...ON WITH THE STORY...THANKSGIVING 2005



LAST THANKSGIVING I WAS INVITED TO A THANKSGIVING DAY, BREAKFAST FOR SIXTY PLUS AND THEN DINNER, WAS INSURED BY MY HOSTS THAT IT WAS GOING TO BE A PARTY IF NOTHING ELSE...

SO, I JUST WOUND UP IN THIS BUM-FLIPPED TOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF VIRGINIA. I HAVE MY GUITAR, MY LAPTOP, MY DIGITAL CAMERA, AND I WASN'T FREAKING WORKING....HOW GOOD CAN THAT BE???????????????

SO, THE WOMAN THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO PICK ME UP AT 6 IN THE MORNING, DECIDED IT WAS A GOOD TIME FOR A COCKTAIL, IT WAS THANKSGIVING AFTER ALL...

SO I SETTLED INTO HAVING A GREY GOOSE AND SOME KIND OF SHIT THAT I BOUGHT FROM HESS OR SUNOCO OR ONE OF THOSE GAS STATIONS OF MY CHILDHOOD...PROBABLY A FREAKING ORANGE JUICE....

THIS HAPPENED LAST YEAR, BUT I FOUND THIS PIC TONIGHT AND IT HAD A LOT TO DO WITH THE DILEMMAS THAT I AM HAVING PROFESSIONALLY AND I HAD TO WRITE ABOUT IT...

IT'S ALL ABOUT ORGANIZATION...

SO ANYWAY, I HAD A COCKTAIL OR TWO BEFORE I ARRIVED AT THE HOUSE DOWN ON RALPH STREET, PAMPLIN, B.F., VIRGINIA...

ONCE I WALKED INTO THE HOUSE WITH ALL OF THE OBLIGATORY HUGS, KISSES, AND HOWDY-DO'S AND I AM GLAD TO MEET YA'S, THIS DRY ERASE BOARD WAS ONE OF MY FIRST EXPERIENCES.THAT ROCKED MY WORLD!!

GO AHEAD LOOK AT IT AGAIN AND TELL ME IF YOU SEE AS MUCH ON THAT BOARD AS I DO. AND SHE'S A FREAKING HOUSEWIFE...I'M A CHEF AND I DON'T EVEN SEE OTHER CHEF'S THAT ARE THAT ORGANIZED...WHAT THE HELL?

WHEN I WALKED INTO THE HOUSE, THIS BOARD WAS ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS AND THOUGHT IT WAS A GREAT PICTURE... I TOOK SEVERAL SHOTS OF THE BOARD, I THINK I LIKE THIS ONE THE BEST...


BUT ANYWAY, LET'S DISECT THIS SON OF A BISQUIT...

HERE IS A WOMAN, LITTLE SUBURBIA B-F NOWHERE, VIRGINIA AND SHE IS COOKING FOR THE TOWN FOLK AND FRIENDS, DOING 60 PLUS FOR BREAKFAST PLUS GOT TURKEY'S ON THE SMOKER FOR TONIGHT.....

KEEPING FREAKING NOTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CHUNGACHUNGAFUCKINGBAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


AFTER I TOOK THE PICS OF THE BOARD, SHE LOOKED AT ME LAUGHING (WITH COCKTAILS IN BOTH OF OUR HANDS AT 7:45 am)....

"CHEFFY BOY....WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?"

I COMMENCED ON ONE OF MY ORGANIZATIONAL BATTLES, LETTING HER UNDERSTAND THAT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS WITH WHO I AM OR WHAT I DO... AND WHO I WORK WITH/FOR

WHOA HOO....CHEFFY JUST HAD A THOUGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!

ORGANIZE YOUR MIND AND HARMONY WILL FOLLOW...

IF MY FRIEND "JUST" CAN TAKE THAT PHILOSOPHY AND TEACH IT TO EVEN ONE OF HER CHILDREN, I WILL BE BLESSED....

THANKS JUST...T'WAS A GREAT DAY...

LOVE ALWAYS,
YOUR BROTHER,
MICHAEL
