Hello everyone, I am hoping and praying that my column finds you in the best of health.
For the first time in a very long time I am not posting a death notice in my column. Do you know how happy that makes me? This week is truly about live entertainment, fun things to do and celebrations on the positive side. I pray that it stays this way.
If you believe and respect the “Rambling Rose” column, than I am asking you to please continue to wear your mask, get your COVID-19 shots and continue to practice social distancing. The Fat Lady has not sung yet, she is just tuning her voice.
Okay, let’s talk about some fun things to do for this Mother’s Day Weekend as well as next weekend.
God Bless this trio— Pamela Leak aka “Miss Maybelle,” Tee-Shirt Brian and Larry Young. They are doing it again— The Big Food Giveaway on Saturday, May 8, 2021 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Arena Players located 801 McCulloh Street in Baltimore City. You can help them out by stopping by and taking some bottle waters, non-perishables food items, toiletries and anything else to give to the less fortunate and homeless. They would appreciate it and it should make you feel good too.

The Preakness opens with the 97th Black Eyed Susan Day on Friday, May 14, 2021 and will again feature the $250,000 George E. Mitchell Black Eyed Susan Stakes and the Maryland Jockey Club announces the renaming of this historic race to honor the late George E. Mitchell and his work within the Park Heights community.
Black Eyed Susan Day offers world-class racing along with premier hospitality offerings and entertainment throughout the day. The day will be highlighted by the running of two prestigious races— The Black-eyed Susan for three-year old fillies and the Pimlico special for older horses.
In my last column, I informed you that William (“Wild Bill #1) Quinn, Sr. passed away on April 16, 2021. I couldn’t give you any more information before my deadline; but his family with sincere gratitude want to thank everyone for the sympathy, love, affection and support that was extended to them during their time of loss.
Well my friends, I got to go, but remember, if you need me, call me at 410-833-9474 or you can email me at [email protected] or you can send me your correspondences to 214 Conewood Avenue, Reisterstown, Maryland 21136.
UNTIL THE NEXT TIME, I’M MUSICALLY YOURS.
