Can this week be a lot less violent and hateful than last week, please.

What’s going on everyone it’s Monday and the start of a new week.

Unfortunately, though. The end of the last week was pretty sad as even more violence erupted this time in Louisiana.

I tweeted my #mondaymotivation saying I hope this week is a lot less violent and hateful.

Truly, my heart goes out to all the victims and their families of this past weeks violence all over the world.

As it might appear, I am trying to get back to this blog. Something that I have been missing and slacking on for quite awhile now.

The only justification I can offer for my lack of posting here is that I have been working a hell of lot at my job.

Yep, I’m still at the concrete plant. I had posted about getting hired there months back. And where I saw a man killed today at my job…

Well, not today, did that happen. It actually happened months ago. And when I wrote that post it was literally like an hour after it happened.

But, yes!

I am still gainfully employed at the concrete plant where “it is hot as all outdoors.”

And just recently, I even got a raise to 14 dollars an hour!

Not bad for a guy who has been out of prison now for about 10 months!

Also, I am still working on The After Prison Show on YouTube.

I have big plans for that channel and I try to upload new videos once a week there.

I have even acquired quite a bit a filming equipment! So my video quality has improved quite a bit, as well.

As a guy who doesn’t drive due to a ton of court fines… ( 15,000 dollars to be specific. Of which 1,600 I have already payed thanks to my job. ) I’ve had to become a very frequent user of Uber and Lyft.

I used these services about 10 times a week.

But throughout my experiences with these services, I have come to realize that there are some drivers who will make you feel like you are on an episode of Undercover Boss.

Not sure what I mean by that.

Well, check out this for more.

And that’s about it for now. It’s 9:30 am on this sunny and hot Monday. And I have to be at work today at 12.

Great.

I get to go to work jusssst when it’s going to be getting BRUTALLY hot today.

But even with that, I’m grateful to have this job and I welcome the heat-stroke type conditions with open arms. Because if not for this job, I would not be anywhere near as close to actually getting ahead as I am now.

Have a great week. And thank you for stopping by!

For all those really, REALLY special moms on Mother’s Day…

Today is Mother’s Day and this is a very special day…

It’s the first Mother’s Day in the last 7 years that I haven’t been in prison for. And also, the relationship between my Mom and me is getting a lot better.

I love my mom.

I love all moms actually.

Shout out to all the mom out there.

Are you a mom..?

Well, if so, raise your hand in the air.

You didn’t just do that, did you..?

Ok. So look here’s the deal…

Mother’s Day is always so lovey dovey. And don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that. But I want to laugh and hopefully make others laugh, too..!

On Mother’s Day..!

So I put this video together in an attempt to do just that.

BUT…

It has caused me to get cussed out and blocked by a few MOMS out there.

To some, yes. It will be offensive, I guess. But to others, it is funny.

So without further ado…

Lets see what YOU think about it…

I hope you laugh.

Regardless though I want to hear your thoughts on it.

So I hope you will comment please and let me know what you think about this video.

Happy Mother’s Day to all…

Even the whore mothers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rivers and roads to and from prison

Well I know I’m pretty much a stranger here these days. But I do miss my blog and blogging friends and everyone else who comments and checks my content out.

Life has just been life lately…

Busy.

Hectic.

Deadly…

But such is life that we adapt, (or die.) And we keep it moving.

So I’m here with all sorts of goodies.

First, I’ve been painting up a storm in preparation of an upcoming Paint Nite with Joe event.

Here is two examples of paintings I’ve done lately….

So yep…

Those are some of the pieces I’ve been working on. There are more…

But the images are sideways are I don’t have time to figure out how to get the right-side up right now.

I really am proud of these pieces, though…

Next up, I finally got a chance to put together a new video for The After Prison Show.

It’s called Rivers and Roads to and from prison.

Hey that’s the same thing that I titled this post as..! Lol

Please check it out and let me know your thoughts. It’s a lot different from what I’ve been doing with more recent videos.

It’s a really good video, I think….

Other than that, I’m back to work since the tragedy that happened last week. It’s been tough, but things have to move forward…

And I have to keep doing the most that I can to make a positive impactful path for myself- and others.

Thanks for all of your support, still…

Even when I’m lacking on my posting.
