Midnight Blue (1963): Jazz guitarist Kenny Burrell featuring Stanley Turrentine on tenor saxophone, Major Holley on double bass, Bill English on drums and Ray Barretto on conga. Midnight Blue is one of Burrell’s best-known works for Blue Note Records. In 2005, NPR included the album in its "Basic Jazz Library", describing it as "one of the great jazzy blues records".

 Family: a basic social unit consisting of parents and their children, considered as a group, whether dwelling together or not: the traditional family.

(Written March 27, 2010)

It has been said that families are like fudge...mostly sweet with a few nuts. Well, with "6" children, "2" ex-wives, and one baby mama (I know, I know...I'm a mother-law's dream right?) there are more than a few nuts. And if you are not nuts someone is driving you nuts. 

All kidding aside, everyone plays very well together for the most part. My first wife (7 yrs) and I are good friends and she is a great mother.. I still believe her to be one of the funniest (very witty) people I know. The same goes for her mother. Think Kathy Bates from the movie "Titanic" meets Shirley MacLaine from "Steel Magnolias" and you have my oldest two boys grandmother. She is fearless and she is hilarious...and she is a wonderful grandmother. My second wife (4 1/2 yrs) works hard. My "baby mama" (5 yrs. - Addison's mom) is a great mom and a good friend. She also won the lottery...she married a neurosurgeon. 

Fast forward to now, after 10 years I finally tied the knot...again (2006). Ronnie and I have two wonderful kids, Ryan (5) & Reese (3 mos.) and we truly have a wonderful relationship. We have been friends for over 17 years.

...if you are not confused you are not paying attention. 

As I mentioned there are "6" kids total (all mine). I know there mine because the child support enforcement agency reminds me every month.

There are "5" boys: Logan (19), Austin (18), Bryce (14), Ryan (5), and Addison (4). There is also one adorable little girl. Her name is Reese Olivia Christine Bailey...she's already pretentious...she has 3 names.

...again, if you are not confused you are not paying attention. Let's review via pictures:

Are we still confused? If so review again at your earliest convenience...
 Joyce Brothers once stated: "When you look at your life, the greatest happiness is family happiness". The same could be said for disappointment and sadness. We argue, we disagree, and we disappoint, but we laugh, hug, and love because at the end of the day we are all we got.
