Some friendsand and I went to see Kevin Nealon at the Improv last night. Click on the link, valt then photo. Check out the photos on his website, as well as the photos of my facebook, and flickr page. I met Kevin a fews years ago in California, when visting my friend Scott. That is how I met Kevin. I’ve been friends with Kevin 3 years after that day. Kevin contact me to say he would be in Houston, and he would like for me to come see him. We did, and he really made me happy, as he did the same for my friends.
This is what Kevin did for me. He wore my just ask shirt on stage. He gave me free tickets. He talk to me after the show, Was not in a rush to leave. He posed for photos with me. He collect lots of doodles for National Doodle Day.
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

Last week, I had speaking engagements in Dallas and Forth Worth, Texas, thanks to my old friend Bob Hopkins, who I met when he was Executive Director of The Texas Neurofibromatosis Foundation. Bob Hopkins is now teaching for Tarrant County College.
Before I go any further, I want to thank every student for taking the time to come hear me speak. It would have not been a success without their involvement. Thank you all, for your time and kindness.
At Eastfield College, my friend Patrick O’Dooley emceed the event in front of 50 students. He stood beside me during Q and A, he and I fielding questions that the students had.
I met Patrick during one of his motivational classes a few years ago. Patrick was one of the first people I have met who was instrumental in making me feel good about myself and making every day a TREMENDOUS day! I’m thankful Patrick was there for me!
In attendance at the speaking engagements were two professors of Sociology and Environmental Sciences, from Collin College. I spoke UP CLOSE and PERSONAL. The President of Tarrant County South College, addressed the students and stayed for my speech there.
By my sixth speech in two days, I’m told I was a pro and that my speaking abilities were great. Bob said I had every class in the palm of my hands!: > ) Bob said he was proud of me. That’s a tremendous compliment coming from someone who speaks as well as Bob Hopkins.
I went to OfficeMax for office supplies today. As Lou and I shopped, Deborah asked if we needed help with anything. She helped with finding the ink for my printer.
When it was time to check out, Deborah, was there again with a big smile. I had a chance to mention Just Ask, but didn’t have any cards with me. Deborah, was nice enough to allow us to take a photo of her.
Thank you Deborah, for your help, and for being so kind! Office Max should be very proud of you!
