BIRD IS THE WORD and FOSSIL FRED
Had a young kid sitting next to me on my flight from DC back to Birmingham last night... so drew a bunch of stuff to keep him entertained. The first one here is “Mr. Bird” according my little buddy John. He was only 5, but that little dude was smart. He and I conjured up a plan for me to paint this bird pic really big and hang it behind my desk in my office... and whenever I was asked a question that took a little too many of my tired brain cells to answer... I could just say, “Bird is the word!” Or when I was upset about something I could just say, “Flock that!” (Well alright, so maybe I conjured up the plan and all lil’ John did was nod because he didn’t know what the heck I was talking about... but I appreciated his enthusiastic affirmation of my plan. Fella is gonna go far in life, no doubt!) The second one is Fossil Fred. Thinking ‘bout hanging him in the office too as a nod to the “good ol’ days” — back when I myself was a little fella like John and used to watch Land of the Lost on television. Remember the Sleestaks?! Hilarious... you could see the zipper in the back of the costume. Them there were the good ol’ days... all had to worry about in life was where my mom put the Doritos. Dayum... I ain’t had a Dorito in years. Don’t seem right... oh well.
Now it’s off to Tupelo for a meeting... dayum, I’m tired. Hope I see the ghost of Elvis down in Tupelo...

Numbers on a scale is just a number. I’ve been on the lowest end of the spectrum before at 80 lbs. yes you read that right. It was after my first surgery that started it all from my meckles divirticukum ( not to be confused with diverticulitis ) Gi issues of the intestines in laymen terms. It was horrible feeling I felt like a coat hanger I felt aneroxic or bulimic even though i wasn’t. Food just wasn’t staying on. As hard as it sounds it was hard to gain weight. I don’t wish that upon anyone to go through any of that. Beyond the worst decade of my life. Fast forward to 2013 when i was trying to loose weight for my wedding and remembered working out at the gym every night after work and on the night before my wedding I was at 110 and I hated the way my hips looked and comparing myself to my sister who has always been so fit and toned since college and she was 125. Taught me a lot that you should never compare yourself especially to your siblings and a number is just that just a number. #differentbodytypes#anumberisjustanumber#clothesfitnotbythescale#dontbeafraidofthescale#giissuessuck#mecklesdiverticulum#meckles#hardtogainback#hardtogainweight#bodytypes#twentiesdecadewasmyworst#hospitalweremyisland#landofthelost
