    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I'm beginning to wonder, do we live in the projects?

    Oh my gosh ... the troubles we've been having lately ... do people with money experience the same?

    I guess they have plumbing problems and stuff, but they problee just pick up the phone and call a licensed and bonded plumber to come right in and fix their stuff ... quick, fast, and in a hurry. They have plenty of cash to pay them, so money is never an issue. This makes the very same problems we have, nothing to them.

    But have a pipe bust in the projects, water will be flowing for days!

    We gotta wait 'til Pookie and Ray Ray nem (aka Destee) put that motor in under the shade-tree, before they can get to us.

    And even then ... we aint gett'n no guarantee on the work ... i mean, it might be fixed, and it might not.

    Flush the toilets gently Family.

    :heart:

    Thank you all for the responses, the encouragement, and love.

    Brother Kamau ... i wasn't trying to say nuth'n is wrong with the projects. Matter of fact, it made me think about how some of my greatest fun (back in the day) was in the projects! Many in my Family lived there, and i loved going to hang out and stuff, cause that's where the action would be. Shoot, i often had a front row seat!

    Nawww ... i was just speak'n to the fact that, along with the good memories, the reality of being poor was ever present too.

    I guess we gotta take the good with the bad.

    Love You!

    :heart:
