Dear Ole Roosevelt......

Two Homecomings in the same weekend.....Gary Roosevelt and Indiana University!!  Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend Roosevelt's activities this weekend.  I remember as a child, I always wanted to go to Roosevelt! My grandparents, parents, uncles, aunts, and cousins all went to 'Velt.  In the summer of 82, I remember walking....yes walking....up to Roosevelt to participate in Summer Band.  That summer and the summers to follow were dedicated to Marching in that heat! Fast Forward to the fall of 1986.-I was the drum major of the best band in the City...hands down!  I remember how hard we practiced for Homecoming to make sure our steps were precise.   We lined up on 21st Ave to start the our homecoming parade.....BAND ATTENTION!! PANTHERS 1-2!!  As we came down Broadway and rounded 25th...we played DEAR OLE' ROOSEVELT and the people were going crazy!!  We were all so pride was so big back forward to halftime....We marched onto the field with Russell Dennie (RIP) playing that bass guitar and the drum section with that cadence......we lost that game by the way....With that being said: 2-5 GET LIVE! GET ALL THE WAY LIVE!! GO PANTHERS and BEAT West Side! *side note* I still can dance and I remember the steps, too....lmbo!!

Keep Smiling

I started off the day in a very good mood! Even though I dreaded coming back to work today.....I took 2 vacay days-Friday and Monday....I still resolved myself to be positive. The workday is going pretty good, no major issues to deal with, so that's a plus at the P.O.!  LOL  How about you? How is your day, today? I hope that it is all good.  Remain upbeat today, it keeps them (haters, naysayers, etc.) wondering what is she/he so happy about??  We gotta keep on their jobs-lol!!

I have promised myself that I would keep smiling today.....what about you?
