TALK TO THE DADDY

Hello. Come on in. The daddy writes about current events, literature, music and, once in a while, drops something on you from back in the day to make you pause and ponder, stop and stare, and begin to wonder. Who knows? You may start to pace the floor, shake your head from side to side, then fall down on bended knees in a praying position and cry, "Lawd, have mercy! What is this world coming to?" Check yourself! But this blog is NOT about the daddy. It's about you: your boos, your fam, your hood, your country...our hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow. So let's make a pact: the daddy will put it on the track if you'll chase it down and hit him back. Together, we can definitely take it to another level. Shall we?"

THE BLACK WEBLOG: THE DADDY WANTS TO THANK YOU



Listen up. The Daddy has been slightly under the weather. A bad cold? Pneumonia? Who knows? But like ole blue eyes-- Frank Sinatra-- says, hey, "That's Life...so I pick myself up and get back in the race." And here's what a brutha knows for sho': he is excited and overjoyed about the Black Weblog Award and his new book, which readers have been asking for and is scheduled to be published next week,

First, The Daddy wants to thank all of you who went to the Black Weblog site and put one down for daddyBstrong. No, daddyBstrong didn't win an award, but The Daddy is so happy that so many of you voted for this blog. Hopefully, therewill be many more votes in the future, The Daddy is also happy about the finalists for the award. They are fantastic bloggers and well deserve the props.

But speaking of the future, The Daddy will continue to pick em' up and lay em' down for you-- continue to run it on the track as long as you chase it down and bring it back. And, as in the past, we'll definitely take it to another level.


One more note about the future: Next week, The Daddy will post the cover of his book, "The Turbulent Sixties? Yes, I Remember."And you'll be able to click on the cover and purchase the book. He thinks you'll love it. More on the book later this week.

I'm glad you're doing better, plus the blog award would be sweet if you get it.

I'm definitely going to buy your book, even if I have to rob Peter to pay Paul to do it.

When you post a column on your blog like you do better'n anyone I know, it takes talent. But it becomes only one more passing target among many. It only is up there for a day or two. But when someone writes a book, it becomes a target for a long, long time. It takes stones as well as talent. Your readers are all proud to know you, Daddy.
