TJ, thanks for taking the time an interest to provide some email advice for me and my wife.
My posts suggested that we were dealing with some financial issues as a couple and you offered some sound advice that we both appreciated. Fortunately things are better for us now. I know that you, LL and the other Knoxers had a great time at your place and I know that your memory lives in our hearts.
Hey pb, do you still have admin privileges that would let you restore TJ's avatar?
If so, here it is:
Sometimes, when things get really crazy and I need to chill (but I don't feel like meditating), I reminisce about Brothah Teej, and I still marvel at the way he glued so many folks together. There was something special about him. Maybe it was because he knew he didn't have a whole lotta time left before he stepped off this mortal coil, so he just skipped all the bullshit.
He was a shit-stirrer, for sure...sort of like Paul's grandfather in A Hard Day's Night...a "mixer". He'd provoke anyone just for the fun of it, but I can't recall him ever being mean-spirited about it. He was just naturally feisty, but he always had a sense of humor about it.
