Today is Father’s Day, o6.16.14, and as the nation pause, for a moment and survey them self and ask the question… what was I doing last year at that time?
I surly miss my Dad, and I think of him often R.I.P. June 5, 1967 week before Father’s Day.
Last Father’s Day, after Sunday school I retired home to be alone.
Alone, by choice for you see I just moved into Piquette Square, Veteran Housing for the Homeless Veteran, 6221 Brush St., Detroit, Mi., and I was tired and wanted to be to myself.
This year will be different, thanks to Mary & Jimmy Giles.
The Good Host’s, for inviting me to:
The North end Community Annual Father’s Day Community Street Party..Street boundaries included, Caniff, Cameron, Cardoni, Delamare, Goodwin, Kenwood and Lynn.
Mary has been after me for the last four years to come and relaxed and enjoy the outdoor party in their back yard that over looked the street.
Hi I’m De Derrick, Hair Stylist/Barber, Mary a client for over fifteen years and is a kind and thoughtful person , and Jimmy her husband, my Spiritual Brother in Christ…where we had the time to Worship together as one at church…we also made time for The Night Life, filled dancing and Entertainment.
I’ve also been invited to their home celebrating their wedding anniversary …and it’s one thing that I can truly said about this couple is that they have your feeling welcome and comfortable at their home.
I’ve so glad you never gave up on inviting me to a Grand Community Street Affair.
As, I enter off of Oakland Ave. and Caniff, it was a sight of cars streight as far to the RR tracks.
I never seen such a Grand display of street partying ever, folks dancing in the streets, the vintage of all the beautiful showcase polished cars all line up for the Sunday sun light to beam the glory of a nice ride and the wheels to match.
This was a good event, peaceful friendly surrounding enjoying Father’s Day.
I passed ,The Good Host’s home so busy looking at the motorcycle’s and the cars, I missed it by a block…backing up, now I can see the house.
The Good Host’s lived close to the corner with a perfect wide view of the street parade, and the smell of Bar be que smoke in the air, as I walk up into the yard of The Good Host.
Hi Mary… Hey Derrick, Happy Father’s Day, and she continued to grill the meat and setting the table.
I took the liberty of finding a table under the tent and I sat to make some notes.
By, this time Jimmy was coming out of the house with chairs in his arms and he had helped from someone caring a table.
Been a little early, I had chance to meet Renee…happy and so full; of life Renee.
Renee shares her testimony on how good God is to have brought her out of a comma and spared her life…
Enjoying myself, taking it all in the breeze of the afternoon air I set and settle in to the end.
I was later introduced to Barbara and Taino that join the seating area under the tent…with Jimmy.
Hi ladies… they replied in share about the weather and they wished me Happy Father’s Day…thank you, with a smile.
Mary, informed the ladies that I was her Hair Stylist and now the conversation changes, and now were taken about hair styling.
I gave them my business card, Mel’s Salon & Associate’s 6080 Woodward Ave., Detroit, Michigan, and they said they will call for an appointment…and I hope that they will show.
I seen familiar face’s that I knew from celebrating last year at the Good Host’s Anniversary.
Jimmy spoke over the food with the Spirit from God, over this Blessed Day.
Now it’s time to eat and Mary kept the food coming, busy as she could into serving her guest as Jimmy help with the maintenance of the ground area and whatever else that he could do to help out his wife, Mary.
As the sun sets upon this remarkable Father’s Day…
One last Selfie to go…Meet June, a the name fitting for the occasion, she also blew me away when I asked her what do she did for a living?…this is what she said and with business cards to back it up.
