Okay...I was wrong

I was wrong, I admit it! I will NOT have the same cell phone number. I will email the new number out to people in a few days after I have everything set up.

Nother wise I am full moved out of H'burg. I am staying with my parents for a few week while I save money and find a place to live.

I am Here, but I am Gone

Well I like the man, Curits Mayfield said, "I am here, but I am gone!" While I am still in H'burg writing this, my mind is in about a million different places.

I got a job. A real job. I got job that is going to pay me a salary and benefits(medical/dental, 401K, etc).I am going to work for the corporate office of McAlister's Deli. What is my job? That is a good question, and I would like to know it as well. I know I will start out as management trainee. Then I guess I will be an Asst. Manager of a store to get me some "real world" experience. Ultimately, I think, they want me to be an Opener/Problem-Solver. Basically this means I get sent to a town that is about to open a store to set up the store and train the staff or I am sent to a store that is struggling to "set that shit straight". This could mean alot of traveling in my future. Which I am okay with. Who knows I could be coming to a town near you.

The sad part is I have to move out of Hattiesburg. This town has been my home, on and off, for a decade now. But it is time to move on. I will miss people, Mik, Becca, Hank, Noffke, Franklin, Bill, Lawerence, etc...and places,The Thirsty Hippo, the End Zone, my current Faulkner like apartment, The Long Leaf Trace Bike Trail, etc.

But, it is time to move on. I have sat in place to long and life is passing me by.

I will be moving to Jackson, the HQ of McAlister, to do my training. I will be staying with my parents for the month or so, till I can save up some money and can get a place of my own. I find that I am okay with moving back to Cracktown. I will be closer to my parents, my grandmother, my sister and brother in law. (Plus, Chris and Ercia, I can be in V'burg in an hour if your parents need help). Anyway, Jackson need more cool mutherfuckers like me anyway.

If you need my new address, ask for it. I will still have the same Cell Phone Number so you can always call.

I guess I am about to take that next step on the great adventure we call Life.

Well here it is, my last time to do Hub City Blues (See Above Post for Reason). I have really loved doing this show over the last three years(only the last year is chronciled here),and I only missed a hand full of shows in that time. I have discovered all types of great music because of it.
I think at some point everyone wants to be on TV or the Radio, and I can say I honestly did it. Really its a pretty geek thing to sit in a room by yourself and play music but I enjoyed the hell out of it. Because I am pretty geeky.
I will miss doing this and miss working at the radio station. Okay, I will miss stealing all that music from the radio station too! But that two hours a week keep me focused and sane during some rough and crazy times.
I give a toast the HCB and hope who ever replace loves it as much as I did.


First I need to Congratulate Erica & Fuzzy on their Marriage. They have been married for half a month now and I am just getting around to congratulating them. I guess I am a little bitter about not being able to attend the wedding. Stupid, Stupid, Stupid, IPW!!!!

Second People I need to congratulate are Carrie(Sunny)Sunday and Zoran, on the birth of their daughter, Kayla Tiffany Timic, who was born Sat. Aug. 19, 2006 at 7:34p.m.
She weighed 6 lbs. and 9 oz. and was 19 in. long.
Carrie was in labor for 3 hrs. and 4 min.

I just want to again say congrats to all you wacky people who are moving forward with their lives.


And here is baby Kayla
