Over 6,500 “Just Ask!” T-shirts Sold as of 5/31/11!!!!

As promised, I intend to pay tribute to each and everyone who sends me a photo of themselves or someone else they know, wearing one of my Just Ask T-Shirts.

I see by these outward expressions that people really do care about those with NF and spreading the word, they care first by purchasing one of my shirts and by wearing the shirt in public, and lastly by taking the time to have their picture taken. Here is what I desire; send me a picture of you or someone else wearing one of my shirts. I think this is going to be a lot of fun, lets see just how public everyone can be, the more people around, the better exposure NF will have, (a little raise in shirt sales won’t hurt ether.)

Some of you may not have received your orders as yet, but I’m sure you will receive it soon. I personally fold and prepare each shirt for shipment, and try to stay caught up as best as is possible. The photos will be posted, as they are received. Old pictures are ok too, it is never too late, even if your shirt is faded it’s ok. I’m looking forward to receiving yours soon. If you only have hard copy pictures, that’s ok, I’ll find someone to scan them and I’ll return the originals if requested. Please no inappropriate photos, G-Rated only please, Also please include your name properly spelled as you desire or maybe written on the back of the hard copies. Thank you! Reggie

My New Shoes, Part 1!

Today Lou and I went to the Village Shoe Shop.  The last time I had shoes made was  two years ago.  So it was time for new shoes.  I’m thankful for my friend Lee Headley taking care of the cost of my shoes. I would not have been able to buy them.

My friends Edie, and Ester, at Village Shoe Shop, took care of everything to start the process. I should have new shoes in about 4 to 6 weeks. Stay tuned to see the posting with me sporting my new shoes.

While I was there, My Facebook friend, Kim Reed,  saw my post about me going to the shoe shop and wanted to stop by but she wasn’t able to make it.  She asked her husband Joe to come and see me.

I know Kim and Joe Reid from Second Baptist Church, where I attend. I was happy to see Joe again, and I look forward to seeing Kim soon. It really turned out to be one of those days.  A Tremendous Day for sure!  Enjoy the photos.

Lunch With Friends at Tila’s!

What a amazing week this has turned out to be!

I was able to hang out with Greg Gorman, Arther Meyerson, and Lou Congelio.

It started on Thursday when Lou and I visited Greg at the Decorative Center where he was setting up for his photography opening on Wednesday, April 27. Lou and I visited with Greg, checked out the exhibit then had a great lunch with Greg and the guys setting up the show.

Then today, Greg and my other photographer friend, Arthur Meyerson, came over to the house to visit with Mom and myself. Of course Greg brought his camera and took some great photos of me!

Yes, it was tremendous, and terrific!  Then it was time for lunch.  Lou took us to my favorite restaurant, Tila’s on Shepherd in River Oaks. Great conversation over lunch and more photo ops.  It couldn’t have been any better then it was today. It was fun giving each other a hard time.  Something we always enjoy. Lot’s of laughing lots of love.  Thank you Arther, Greg, and Lou.

My first and favorite teacher, Johnnie Howell, was buried today.

It was a bittersweet day for me. Johnny Howell was remembered today. She was my first teacher. She was a angle when I met her, and for sure she is one today. I was blessed today to share some wonderful memories about Mrs. Howell. Thank you Jim Bettis for allowing me to be there. I was happy to let everyone know about the great things she has help with. I’m proud that Johnny has help me be the person I am today. My best to Mr. Howell (Larry) and everyone who loved Johnny.
