It’s been all rain and no shine in the City of Brotherly love the past few months but this past weekend I got the chance to have my very own Funny… Sunny… Weekend. A good friend of mine hung out with me and we decided to hit up China Town to grab a quick bite from a sports bar Bar-Ly. before we headed over to the Trocadero to see stand up comedian Ron Funches . He was in town on his “Funch-a-Mania” tour making the crowd laugh (and my cheeks hurt) as he shared his love for Dwayne “The Roc” Johnson and cracked small jokes about his current weight lose. You can find Ron on NBC’s Powerless TV series as himself or catch him on tour in your City.
After all that laughter I was dreadfully hungry so we decided to stay in the area and grab dinner at SPICE C Chinese restaurant and order the Hot Pot spicy seafood bowl, Szechuan chicken and crab Rangoon and literally pigged out. We got there close to closing time so we ordered, gobbled as much as we could and headed over to Milk Boy to sip some cocktails and watch the NBA finals Cavaliers (137) vs Warriors (116) game. Soon after the game we ordered another round then called it a night. I don’t get a chance to get out much due to my busy schedule so when I do I take advantage of the full day given and have myself a Funny… Sunny… Weekend!.
My end of the Summer A Rose Forever Thorned book signing was a success. I totally did not expect those who came and the support was out of this world. I’m a bit surprised at myself at how comfortable I was at greeting those who not only came to support me but those who came out to the 4th Friday Wine & Cheese to enjoy some light bites, cocktails and music. Nervous? Yes because I’m so not an in your face type of girl but it all went well. A few of my family members came out to show their love and support for my special day. My heart was glad to see faces of support and knowing that I have people in my corner rooting me on makes me believe in myself all the more.

Anthony Henderson and his Mother Ms. Jackie
I saw Ms. Jackie at a Singles 2016 event a few weeks ago and she said she was coming. I looked up from my table and who’s walking in the door Ms. Jackie LOL!. People don’t know how big of a smile they’ve put on my face that night. I work so hard behind the scenes making any way that I can out of no way and it feels so good to know that there are people who actually care and support me in all that I do.
Mr. Scott “A Rose Forever Thorned” supporter
I wish I could have snapped a picture with all who supported A Rose Forever Thorned but I was so busy signing and thanking all those who stopped by my table. Big SHOUT OUT! To those who won the giveaways from my raffle. It was nice to give away some free stuff and to see the smile on people’s faces when they receive free stuff too LOL. All of my friends and associates weren’t able to make but that’s okay there will be other dates to support and many other talents to love.
