Quote of the Day
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” -John Calvin Coolidge
It was the Nite Before Christmas, and all through Piquette Square Veteran’s Permanent Housing, 6221 Brush St., Detroit, MI. home for the Homeless Veteran’s.
Not a creature was moving not even a junk yard dog was barking this day.
The hall ways was decorate ever so nice with the spirit of Christmas in the air, as Veteran’s inside their Square were making plans for the time of the Season.
My next door neighbor, Earl is no exception as he packs his bags on his way to celabrate the holiday’s with family.
I’ m De Derrick, home along this holiday reading up on the Sunday School Bible story told of Christ that born in a manger this Christmas Day…Luke 2.
Yes, I realize that we live in a material world and the world says Christmas is for the children, I would never won’t to scrooge Christmas out of no child, but let’s not forget the true meaning of Christmas, is Christ, the Savoy of the world.
Earl, asked me if I would watch and feed the kids while he would be away, and who in their right mind would won’t leave the kids home alone…for a week and a half…oh no!
Not my good neighbor Earl, so I accepted the responsible of watching and feeding the kids.
You know now days you got to be careful who you leave your children with.
I went next door for the final briefing and feed instruction of the fish…Earl Children’s 30 of them….LOL… I hope you didn’t think I was going to sit with some kids, oh no, I’m not that good nature.
These were no ordinary school of fish or even gold fishes their called convicts, because of their stripe’s.
As I set on the edge of the bed watching Earl feed the Convicts, I was simple at awe top see how quickly and aggressively the Convicts swim to the top of the tank to eat.
Earl inform me to feed them every other day, you count on me Big Daddy and have happy holiday’s and we will see you when you return home to your children’s and Piquette Square.
