I Appreciate U

I felt so grateful for all the love that is shared at The Rich House that I prepared a little something for all of you to show my appreciation for your contribution.

Mad Love to all of you who make The Rich House such a jumping spot. I love all of your blogs.

In no particular order:

The Lo Zone, I am inspired, Neurotica and Nonsense, Saadia’s World, Write for Life, Raw Dawg Buffalo, Drawn 2 Words, Sista Big Bones Perspective, CAP City, Kalamazoo Vixen, The Cortney Gee Experience

And to those who just comment and provide inspiration for other topics, I love you too.

Again, in no particular order:

Lance, California Dove, Derty Red, Juan G, C-Mac, and to all the untold eyes that view this blog on the regular.

Title: In Love With The Word
Subtitle: Power of the Blog

Like a CAP the words go forth with a boom
You can hear it all through your CITY

And even if you are a VIXEN longing to hear I do,
Does it make you miss KALAMAZOO?

The power of the word is so RICH you can here it IN THE STL, not to mention even DC.

The lyrics of love, sex and lies that are spit on the LO suddenly leave you in a ZONE.
You can’t help but walk away and say to yourself…
I AM Inspired.

I mean the lines make you feel connected like a boy falling for his first GIRLY GIRL.
Can you hear SHAI singing, If I ever fall in love?

“And if I ever (ever fall) in love so true”

I’m DRAWN 2 the WORDS of the song when I think of you.

It makes me want to testify about the goodness of the ALL-MI-T

And some wonder why I love you cause they judge the exterior
But you’re my Sista Big Bones and I could WRITE about you FOR LIFE

I’m so grateful that you C my heart and not the MAC in me. I’ve given up being a GEE and now get to EXPERIENCE what true love is all about.

I’m your knight in shining armour, your Sir LANCE(a lot)
You’re my DOVE
My peace in the midst of a storm
I will never JUAN(der) from your love.

CapCity said...

So, C-mac - when is this long lunch/dinner talk going to take place? Plenty o' spots that stay open VERY late here in The Apple;-).

Yea, regarding the "poster" above me - I WOULD be the "lucky" one below... w/my photo "looking" in that direction (smirk w/raised brow). LOL!

Mizrepresent said...

dertyred said...

snapping my fingers, thanks for the shout out, i feel so loved. now on another note no man with balls didn't post that pic...i'm scared of you.

Rich in the Stl said...

I was thinking about a get together this weekend. So far we got people in St. Louis, Cleveland, Atlanta, Brooklyn, North Carolina (can't remember the city),Jacksonville, Indiana, Detroit. What's the central spot?? I haven't been to New York since the late 80's. I got people in Atlanta and Jacksonville. The hottest close cities would probably be Chicago or Atlanta, but I wouldn't mind revisiting New York. My calendar is filling up, but I might have room for a get together over the right weekend. Right now, Labor Day is open.

CapCity said...

I've pencilled Labor Day wkend in. May be a tough weekend to get a group rate anywhere, but we can try:-).

CortneyGee said...

California Dove said...

Rich in the Stl said...

Man with balls, my apologies I kept looking at all the links I had on the site and then the new bloggers came to mind. I was throwing this together in the midst of painting and doing taxes. My bad. You know you get mad love up in here.

Lance said...

s'up bruh rich, thanks for the love...apologize for the late check-in....

wow, mwb was ballsy enough to drop his nuts on the screen...okay, ladies...enjoy!!!

i'll try to make the "family reunion"...due to work, i'm usually bizzy that labor day weekend.

Rich in the Stl said...

We'll have to really plan this. It was just a suggestion.

CapCity said...
