#XD30 – Twenty One & Twenty Two – Here.

I feel awful for not posting yesterday.


Or even today.


My schedule has turned upside down something serious, in a good way. However, it’s taking me away from things I deem important.


I’m going to get it together. I have to.



#XD30 – Seventeen – 3

I have three minutes until 12.


Quick thoughts:


I’m tired. I’m hungry. And some how, I’m full.


Let’s try writing something substantial tomorrow.

#XD30 – Sixteen – Pray

It’s always interesting that we ask folks, or even ourselves, to pray about something when you need it, and never praying just to say “thank you.”


I have to work on this. I’m working on this.

#XD30 – Ten – Here

…picking back up where we left off…

“You have to be real cool, Dad. Don’t tell her any of those corny jokes you tell us.”

“They made you laugh, right?”

Alexander continued to fix his father’s tie before he went to pick up Diana for dinner and dancing. Vann had watched nothing but movies with Billy Dee Williams in it to ensure he could impress and woo the object of his affection.

On the way to Diana’s house, Vann picks up a bouquet of lillies. He heard through the grapevine at church that those were her favorite. Well, not really the grapevine. She kept a fresh bouquet of them on her desk in the pastor’s office.


He pulled up to the house, and parked the car. He smelled that smell again.

He smiled.

He then rang the doorbell.


#XD30 – Six – Diana

After 16 years of being single and mourning his late wife, Vann decided it was time to find love again. The only thing was that he had forgotten how. He hadn’t picked up a woman since the early 80s. He figured the best way to find a woman was in church, because he needed to be sure that his next relationship was washed in the blood of the lamb.

“You know Sis. Stokes always had a thing for you, Dad.” Vann Jr. made sure to call his father and brother every Wednesday and Sunday evening while he was away at UCLA. He was there on an academic scholarship studying Applied Mathematics.


Diana Stokes was the church secretary. She was 5’9″ and smelled like tulips. Vann designed all of the furniture in her home.  Vann heard a beeping noise on the line.

“Hold on, son. I got another call.”

“Hello, Vann? This is Diana.”
