Bourbon & Me

Sunday I went horseback riding with my daughter at “A Horses Friend” it was alright just too many people for me. It was an enjoyable ride except for ....well I will keep that to myself and see if the situation arises again.

I rode Bourbon and that horse was moody and slow nothing like Whiskey. Erin rode Whiskey today and she had no problem at all dayum how I wanted to ride Whiskey. I think the next time I am going to reserve according to the horse. Ervin cooked a salmon burger and some broccoli which was delicious. We both sat down and watched “I am Not your Negro” with the window open enjoying that cool Canadian air. Its a shame that James Baldwin’s message is still applicable to today in what we are experiencing nationally.

Lately Rochester, NY has been on the news in a negative light. Not to long ago Leticia Astachio a former Rochester city court judge was fired for drinking and wrecklessly abusing her position. Now we have Mayor, Lovely Warren Rochester’s first Black woman Mayor in office and she is under investigation for not coming forward and firing the six officers that killed Daniel Prude. Daniel Prude was a black man from Chicago that was having a mental breakdown running down Jefferson Ave butt naked at 3am & was murdered by city of Rochester police officers by asphyxiation.

I am disappointed with the actions of the mayor because whether she knew March 23rd or August 4th why didn’t she fire the officers first and tell the community. It was her responsibility to enlighten the community instead of the seeing the video via news that she knew and did nothing. The chief stepping down and then two days later she fires him. I’m trying to make sense of the mayor firing the chief of police for what she did herself which was keeping the situation quiet. Both of the city officials blaming one another for getting caught covering it up.

State Attorney General, Letitia James has come upstate to clean up this awful mess we having going on in City Hall. It's one thing to mishandle a situation admit it and move on but Lovely Warren continues to lie blaming everybody but herself. I believe if she had done the right thing and asked for the resignation of the police officers the community would have backed her 100%. Instead she has betrayed the community at such a low level, but hiding the facts of Daniel Prude death. I can't see how she thinks she is going to be re-elected in Rochester again.

Rochester overall is a pretty nice city it has numerous Wegman's & Aldi's grocery stores which both provide healthy food at a good price. Lately the 16 shot on Pennsylvania Ave house party has had the nations eyes on Rochester like we are Chicago which we are far from that type of killings.

The only way I keep my sanity is by doing my research for my retirement boat. I am eager to find a nice good size 38ft sailboat to live on in the islands with one or two of my Sun's. Yep that's my goal and work from my boat every other week do an Airbnb on land to cook an elaborate Sunday dinner. I look forward to the marina life I love water and would love to wake up to the sun emerging from the water. Scuba diving in St. Thomas snapping pictures of exotic reefs and coral and switch up to. an underwater camera.

Sunday I found out my drone is having technical issues with the gimbal. Trying to reset it and hope I don't have to send it in to be DJI to be repaired. I really need an Inspire 4 and may have to go all in and purchase one before I get this boat because that is my bread and butter.

Hopefully the city of Rochester can get pass this negative news and change the direction to something positive. Because Rochester doesn't need to be coming out of Lester Holt's mouth unless it is about snow. I love Lester at abc WorldNews Tonight, I just don't like the city where I live being highlighted for cops killing a black man going through a mental health breakdown.

This week is flying by and feels like I am in a movie watching my life play out on screen.

Till next time...Blessingz
