Hello everyone, are you excited? I know I am, but careful. So please continue to keep your mask on indoors and in crowded places. Stay safe!

Well my Boo-Boo and I went to a couple of events last weekend, which was very nice. First, we went to an indoor/outdoor car show, which we loved and saw many vintage and new cars on display with their owners in Painters Mill. They had food, drinks and areas where you could sit and rest and be socially distanced, thank goodness, because these old bones ain’t what they used to be.

Then later that day we attended Gwen Patillo’s 90th birthday celebration. Indeed it was very nice. You remember Gwen was Baltimore’s own powerlifting champion for many years. Almost a hundred of her friends and family surrounded her wishing her a happy 90th year as she strolled down the aisle of the hall with her walking cane.

“May God bless you with many more my friend.”

Baltimore’s Power Couple” did it again, well the female part this time. I am talking about Dr. Florine “Peaches” Camphor, wife of James “Winkie” Camphor who received an honorary doctorate at Coppin State University last week.

These two people believe in pushing education. When “Peaches” started at Coppin, she did it with a $250.00 scholarship, and didn’t have to pay tuition. She graduated in 1958. She planned to be a nurse but changed her mind and decided to work as a reading specialist to help children. Now, both Peaches and Winky are very strongly involved in education even in retirement.

Well done “Peaches.” James “Winky” and Dr. Florine “Peaches” Camphor are the Duke and Duchess of Coppin State University. I am so proud of them both.

Oh, let me tell you about Anthony “Swamp Dog” Clark, one of my favorite Blues musicians— I try not to miss any of his live shows. If you like the Blues, you have got to check him out. He is having this outside event with his band at the Old Bowie Town Grille at 8604 Chestnut Avenue in Bowie, Maryland on Sunday, May 23, 2021 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. This is an outside event with live music; plenty of good food and drinks. You got to check it out— you won’t regret it. I’ll see you there.

Yes, the city is slowly opening and I am so happy.
