In getting ready for the month of Sept, I realized how busy life would be for me. With that in mind, I used my logical, rational mind to minimize how many times I performed. I don't want to prep for a show every week while taking care of the many other things I need to … Continue reading Guess who is telling stories and jokes and talking to folks?
I don't know about anyone else, but I got on social media by accident. Helping out with a week long, in-residence fire service leadership course, I agreed to help manage the Facebook page. But I didn't have a Facebook account. And I couldn't get away with not having one to manage the page. I figure … Continue reading Anyone else in the Club(house)?
I'm still doing shows! Just not as many of them. That's by design. I'm busy with a few other things in life. And besides, the keeping up with COVID -19 is like trying to keep up with the Kardashians; the more you check, the worst it gets. There are still a few places you can … Continue reading Am I still telling stories and jokes?
If you are in the DC, MD, VA area this month, guess what? So am I! I mean, I live in the area, so, it makes sense. Whether you are from the area or just passing through, pass through one of my shows! Some are online, and a few more are in-person. I'll be telling … Continue reading Shows coming up in July

Where Am I Supposed To Be This Week ?!?!?!
June is here! Of course, if you are using a calendar, I guess you don't really need me to tell you that. You would, however, need me to tell you what I'll be up to this month. Once again I am fortunate to be a part of some great things. Hopefully, you can make checking … Continue reading Dad Jokes, Dad Stories, And Everything In-between
Guess what? Somehow I managed to squeeze in 5 shows to be a part of in the span of the next 4 days. I'm excited about them all. I get to do all the aspects of stories and jokes and talking to folks. I'm hosting storytelling shows Wed for Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP) and … Continue reading Wait! Where Am I Supposed To Be This Week ?!?!
I never watched the TV show "Lost". Not that it ever seemed bad, it just didn't get my attention well enough to sit down and watch it. From what I understand of it, a plane crashes on a remote island and people have to survive this new place in life until they can get back … Continue reading Bittersweet
The number one event of this month for me is Mother's Day. But there happens to be a few other days that I have other events that are going to be great!
