Guess Who’s BACK!!! Test

Hey, fam!!

What up? What up? What up? When we last chatted “Pla’s Thoughts said we would be back in a few weeks. You can blame me for that. I ended up being the hospital and then to rehab followed by in-home physical therapy. There are still some issues but we are back!!

Jax has been relatively good. I think when he saw me with a walker it scared him. That didn’t last too long before ol’ Jax got used to me. The first time he saw me without my walker, that was the day he went for a run. The only difference was that I couldn’t go after him. Luckily, it was a nice ice-cold day and the day after he had his haircut. Needless to say, he came back on his own within twenty minutes he was at the door doing this pitiful whiny bark.

That’s how I have been, now let’s talk about what is on my mind. Boneless wings Yes, you read it correctly. In case you forget I’m the foodie. Well, that’s not true. I’m a closet foodie, Pla’s Thoughts is the true foodie. Anywhozzle, back to what’s on my mind. Boneless wings. If they have no bones in it, isn’t that basically a nugget.

So, why do they call it a boneless wing? Maybe they want you to know where the pieces are from. I thought of that too. Why not call them, oh I don’t know, wing nuggets. I’m not on Madison Avenue. That’s not my job just stop calling them boneless wings. They are NUGGETS, I tell ya, NUGGETS. Okay, I’m getting off my soapbox, now. So tell me what you think? Yes, I know there are more serious things I could have talked about. Why not have some fun. Life’s too short.

It’s about time, don’t you think so?
It’s has been announced that “How To Get Away With Murder” is ending after this upcoming  6 season. And guess what  y’all . . . “I ain’t surprised. Nope, not at all.” As Deadline reports, the ABC show that furthered heightened the talent of Viola Davis which landed her an Emmy for Best Lead Role in a Drama series is closing its doors for good.
 “HTGAWM’s final chapter also brings to an end TGIT as a three-hour Shondaland programming block taking over ABC’s Thursday night primetime.”
And as creator Peter Nowalk of this series states . . .
“Deciding to end this series was a brutal decision, but ultimately, the story tells you what to do – as it did here. For me, Annalise Keating’s journey has always had a clear ending. Knowing I have 15 episodes left to finish her story, and the chance to give all the characters their own killer endings, is a gift rarely given to a series creator and I’m grateful to ABC and ABC Studios for the opportunity and creative freedom. I am so thankful to the brilliant cast, writers and crew for dedicating themselves to the most rewarding experience of my career over the last six years. I also want to thank our fans. The only reason this show exists is because of your loyalty and enthusiasm. I can’t wait for you all to see how it ends, with twists and turns and all the craziness we love to create every Thursday night. Buckle up.”
Honestly, I never got into the series although I tried. But once Scandal was over, ABC dropped off my radar. Yep. Now, for those fans that continued with the show and will experience significant loss once it’s over, I’m sure something else will come around soon to fill that painful void. And if not, then read a book. What . . . I’m just offering a suggestion. And Happy Friday!!!

Hey fam,

I’m hooked on Netflix. Let me rephrase that, I’m hooked on the new shows. Netflix has two new shows. “Mr. Iglesias” starring Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias and Sherry Shephard. The storyline is about a teacher and an administrator that care about their students. The teacher, Mr. Iglesias, is a recovering alcoholic and former student that came back to be a history teacher. I admit I’m not doing the show any justice but it’s a great binge of chuckles. It’s almost like a male funnier version of “Mom”.

My other new favorite show just came out today. I have already watched it twice. The show is called “Family Reunion”. Thanks to the website shadow and acts. That’s how I found out about it. You see the hook to this show is that every one of the writers is African-American. This is unusual. Please believe me when I tell you that it shows. I have read other reviews that say that this is a throwback show. They obviously didn’t watch the season. Sure there are some moments that are a little throwbacky (yes I made that up) but it is still a great family show. There are ten episodes for part 1. I’m ready to see part two. I don’t know when part two comes. Loretta Devine, Tia Mowry-Hardict, and Richard Roundtree are the seasoned actors for this show. And add Telma Hopkins to the mix and you have a show that reminds you of all of your relatives or friends of your relatives.

So if you are looking for some fun with lessons to be learned, watch these two shows. I will let you know the other shows I like too. Maybe next time we can talk about “Claws” and “Queen Sugar.

Later fam!

Hey fam,

By now you have heard about the young man from Arizona that was killed for playing rap music. When I first heard this I thought here we go again. Then I read about this case. I thought this happened near the car. No, it happened inside the “Circle K”. I mean right there in the store. Elijah Al-Amin was 17 years old not knowing why he was being attacked.

Elijah Al-Amin

The killer, Michael Adams age 27, was recently released from prison when he felt “threatened by rap music”. His lawyer is trying to use the “mental health issues” and was released without medication. The reason he was released without medication is that DOC said he wasn’t under psychiatric care while inside.

Michael Adams/Peoria Police Dept

The previous crimes included assaulting other people that he didn’t know. He also assaulted a correctional officer. On one of his cases they tried the same thing and well he ended up being found competent and served his time.

When the police showed up Adams tells them he was fearful of his life. People that played rap music have allegedly harmed him or family members. Now, this is foolishness. The fact that he could hear the music and then go inside the store to find Elijah and slit his throat. I’m not a lawyer nor do I play one on t.v. but that seems premeditated to me.
