AUSTRALIA TO HAWAII

LAST NIGHT IN AUSTRALIA

One tear falls slowly... It's been a blast Australia!! A month in your country doesn't seem like enough. But all good things must come to an end at some point and our BS&T visa has run out so they are making us leave the country now. But not without closing it out right on our final night with a packed house at LIZOTTE'S. 

BAND IN ACTION

We were on a tight stage but that didn't stop us from rocking out the folks in NEWCASTLE, AU and closing this tour out with a bang. We loved every minute of our tour and it was bitter sweet hitting those last notes of the show. I have already heard talk of venues wanting us back and you know that won't hurt my feelings a bit to have to cross the pond again for a visit to jam. Just give the word and we are there!!

AUSTRALIA DONE

What a run it was... Never the less we had to leave one paradise and head off to the next. HAWAII!! I have never been but I hear it's beautiful, lets get on another plane and fly 10hrs to see what the buzz is all about.

FLIGHT TO HAWAII

UP!!!!! FLY!!!! FLY MORE!!!! EAT A MEAL, FLY JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE!!!!!! ALMOST THERE!!!!!!!!!!

ARRIVE HAWAII

AHHH....Touchdown in Hawaii town, Honolulu to be exact. This is going to be a nice few days off to relax and recoup from burning the candle from the middle to each end since we left for Jakarta and then Australia. Well deserved and much needed for all of us I promise.

SUBMARINE HAWAII

As we were coming in for a landing into Honolulu there was a submarine escort in the harbor waiting to bring us in for a landing and I was able to snap a quick shot off before we hit the tarmac. Really, You Shouldn't Have (LOL) This is going to be a great trip!! I rested the 1st day, sat on the beach with my buddy Dustin and his wife Beth the second day and also made time to pick up some souvenirs for the family before we start our Press & Shows on Thursday at The Blue Note four nights in a row.

 

PAW I

Then I made the trip that I have wanted to make since I was a young boy and my Paw Bice would tell me the stories of his time in the service and about the attack at Pearl Harbor or "Hell In Paradise". He was there when this attacked happened and was one of only a few out of his battalion who made it through it alive. I always wanted to go to the place that held so many painful memories and left so many scars (some visible, other that weren't) in this man that I have always been proud to call my Paw Bice. I wanted to visit this paradise to show him that people never forgot about the sacrifices that had been made on that Dec day in 1941. I wanted to bring back pictures and a gift to give him so he could see that people don't just visit Pearl Harbor for the Sun, Fun & Food in Hawaii. They visit to remember the ones we lost and the ones who survived. Warriors like him.PEARL HARBOR

So I got you this Paw... I'll put it in the case that holds the flag that draped your casket with the 3 shell I have from the 21 gun salute you earned from your sacrifice in service and in the life you provided for all of us. Even though the pain he carried with him throughout his life was terrible he never let it change him. Through the haunting memories and physical disabilities like hearing loss, frostbitten feet from Korea, pain and ailments from wars and battles that he fought just to make it home to his wife and family, he was alway a good man and never let his past destroy his future and he taught us kids/grandkids to choose the right path in life and that's not always the easy path. "Sometimes you need a walkin' stick for the cut trail. Sometimes you need a machete to cut your own way through to your destination." But giving up was never an option...NEVER.

MA PAW TOGETHER AGAIN

Now he rests... I cannot believe that it's been over a year since he left us but I think and often speak of him on a daily basis. The greatest grace God ever place in my life (besides my wife & kids) was allowing me to spend the last seconds of his life whispering in his ear how much we love him and letting him know that it was O.K to move on. I won't say what I told him during those last minutes, that's for he and I. I'll just say that I know he was ready to go home to be with my Maw Bice and his other loved ones who were waiting on him to arrive.

My favorite saying of his was "There's 3 kinds of people in this world. The ones who WATCH THINGS HAPPEN, the ones who MAKE THINGS HAPPEN, the ones who WONDER WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED!! Which one will you chose to be??"

Rest up ole buddy, I've got your watch covered and I promise not to fall asleep while I'm on duty at my post. I can't wait till we meet again Harold E. Bice, but Heaven ain't ready for the 2 of us yet, they're still getting accustom to you up there ordering everybody around. So when I do get there please be waiting at the gate, ST. Pete might not let me in otherwise... I don't have your security clearance. Aloha from "Hell In Paradise" 

I LOVE & MISS YOU PAW

BOGART

 

 

TIVOLI TO TWIN TOWNS

TIVOLI

TIVOLI WAS GREAT!! MY BS&T BROTHERS AND I LOVED THE WAY THIS CROWD GOT DOWN-UNDER

TIVOLI STAGE TV

We alway enjoy playing this music to the fans who helped to make is a hit the 1st time around and now continue to keep the band on the road and touring world wide so we can continue to gain new fans 50 years after its conception. Thank you BS&T lovers!! Brisbane for hosting us and treating us like rockstars, we will be back again soon I'm almost positive.

BRISBANE

UP! UP!! AND "HOME AND AWAY"!!! That's a bit of Aussie humor folks... I'm sorry the jokes keep getting worse each post, we are so punch drunk from the road that we get a chuckle outta everything!! After flying into Coolangatta we headed straight to the next venue a few hours away in Ballina when we setup, feed up, and showed out!

BALLINA STAGE

This audience was so much fun and really played off the musicians and one another to give BS&T a night we won't soon forget. Kevin Smick caught this cool shot of us doing what we in Ballina, ROCKIN' OUT!!! We were so tired after this show that the hour and a half drive back was only interrupted by my peanut size bladder for a quick stop, everyone was sound asleep or at lease I thought they were because I sure was out like a light. All of us arrived back at Twin Towns in Coolangatta where we are set to play tonight and had the entire day to rest up and check out this lovely beachside town that we played in last time we were here.

TWIN TOWNS

I went for a walk out on the beach and also got myself a haircut at a little shop across from the hotel we are staying in. Ric, Dylan & I had lunch and ice-cream by the beach and took in the cool autumn breeze of this surfer's paradise that we've called home for the past 2 days. I like hangin' with Dylan and "CRAZY UNCLE RIC" (That's what the kids call him) because there is never a dull moment and I with 2 fellas that always have my back on stage and off. I love you brothers.

TWIN TOWNS ROOM

This room is an amazing showroom and I remember the last time we were here BS&T packed them out and put on an amazing show for this crowd of young folks new to BS&T and the lifelong BS&T loyal followers who packed them in and also requested us back again.... So here we are Coolangatta!

TWIN TOWNS POSTER

The soundcheck is done, dinner has been had, now it's off to the stage to give these BS&T fans what they've waited 18 months for, the show of a lifetime! I can't wait to share the pictures and stories of what tomorrow bring Peeps. We only have 3 more shows and it's off to Hawaii for even more sun, fun, and some shaking buns. I hope you all back home are having as much fun reading the post and seeing the picture of our return trip to Australia and the groovy Jakarta trip that brought us to this side of the planet in the first place. Tune in for more stories from the road on BoBice.com!

BS&T AREN'T ASHEEP AT THE WHEEL CANBERRA

CANBERRA

BS&T was in Canberra last night for another show in Australia. We are nearing the end of this run and only have one week and 5 shows left before we head to Hawaii for a week to perform at The Blue Note 4 nights in a row for our Polynesian Pals in Paradise. It has been a fun time on this trip to Jakarta/Australia, the month has flown by (MUCH LIKE US) and I can't believe it's almost over. I'll enjoy every hour we have left here and won't be...

CANBERRA SHEEPISH

Sheepish about sharing my photos and posts with all you Peeps on BoBice.com (LOL). These puns aren't easy to come up with, I stay up late thinking of new ones. You could sure enough get some major chops outta this fella we saw at the rest stop on the way into Canberra that we took a minute to stretch our legs at. This sheep was HUGE!! I'm not sure why they built a massive Sheep on the side of the road out in the middle of nowhere, but I'm glad they did because it made one heck of a photo opp for us tourists headed to the next venue in Australia's capital of Canberra.

CANBERRA PARLIAMENT

BIG BEN AND PARLIAMENT KIDS!! We didn't get close enough to get a good photo but I was able to snap a quick one as we negotiated the roundabout headed to the venue "THE SOUTHERN CROSS" where we were set to give the crowd a night of music and fun that they've never experienced before in their lives. And my BS&T brothers didn't let them down one bit!!

CANBERRA STAGE SHOT

Dillion Kondor does a great rendition of his grandmothers (Carole King) song Hi-De-Ho. Dillion not only plays the heck outta the guitar but he also sing awesome too! It's nice to be able to watch other performers like Dillion and Ric (who does SOMETIMES IN WINTER) while seeing the look on the audiences faces as they drift away into the music that has been a part of their life's story. I see the reaction that these songs have on the crowd each night as I sing them, and sometime I get serenaded by the crowd too!! That's one of my favorite parts of this gig is seeing how the emotion runs through the people who come out to watch us perform the songs that have been the soundtrack of their lives. It has been a special experience for me to be a part of this band over the last 3+ years, I have loved every moment of it and I'm blessed to have been a small part of this historically iconic Rock/Jazz/Fusion horn band that has kept the fans captivated over 5 decades. Thanks to all the BS&T fans for welcoming me into the fold and to all my BO PEEPS who have showed up to pay homage to both BB/BS&T.

CANBERRA AIRPORT

Then it's off to the next town to do it all again!! WASH, RINSE, REPEAT....Just another day at work I guess folks. We landed in Brisbane a few hours ago and we are at soundcheck set to test the mixes for tonights show at THE TIVOLI. LET'S DO THIS!!

 

THE ONES WHO MAKE IT HAPPEN

EVAN THEATRE

Saturday we played at The Evan Theatre in Penrith. The crowd was great as usual, the show was fun for all and the local staff and our hard working BS&T crew worked their tails off to make us musicians look like a million bucks!! This post is for the unsung heroes who do the dirty work so our job always looks easy every time we hit the stage.

DUSTIN BOARD SHOT

Dustin runs the monitor board on stage that all the musicians use for reference. He makes sure that both our in-ear and floor monitors are to each of our liking so that we can hear ourselves and the other band members during the show every night. Sometimes the equipment is old as the dinosaurs and other times it's so hi-tech that the bells and whistles can look like a video game more than a piece of sound equipment. That means he has to be able to go from Fred Flintstone one night to Capt. Kirk controlling the starship enterprise the next night and make each show seamless for us on stage so we can do our job without any hiccups. Thanks Dustin for all you do buddy.

Kevin (Little Smick) is the stage manager who along with carrying gear makes sure that our towels, water, set-lists, ect. are all on stage and in the designated places so that we are all happy and have consistent placement for our show needs. Great work Kev!

SMICK BOARD SHOT

Mr. Smick is the Tour Manager/Front Of House for BS&T. His job is to baby-sit a bunch of full grown men out here on the road while making us all sound good for the venue, promoter, buyer, management and the audience every night. He's been with BS&T for 30+ years and is a special part of my journey over my 3+ years with the group. I lovingly call him Smickles or D.A. (Designated Adult) because he makes us sound great each night but he also advances the shows months before we ever leave our families and take to the road/sky to perform. U Rockith Smickles!!

MEDIA POSTER

While the band rested up for a few days and got some well deserved R&R. Some of us had to work on our day off though! WORK? (LOL) Our Publicist Tatiana had us up at 6am to do press between 7-2pm for the last week of shows here on the east coast of Australia before heading to Hawaii. Dylan, Larry & I took to the airwaves to tell everyone we could about the upcoming shows and meet as many folks as we could that have promoted us before we arrived. She was also the one in charge of the PR on our last trip to Australia 18 months ago when we made our way over to show our Aussie fans that BB/BS&T are still going strong and love to visit this beautiful country. She has been a sweetheart and helped us to put butts in the seat with media/press/interviews for our tours here in Aussieland. Thanks for your hard work young lady and thank you to all of the stations/radio personalities/news outlets who let us come in and chat with them about BS&T being here again to ROCK THE ROOS AGAIN. You're the best Tat!!

There are many people in the business who work behind the scene to make the tour a success so that we can stand on stage and get the applause each night. Many times they don't get a thank you from the audience for their exhausting job, sometimes even us band members forget and take for granted the fact that without them the shimmer can't become the shine. I always try to give them a shout out from the stage each night, but I really wanted all of you on the other-side of the music to have an understanding of how important their job is to our success as a group. We musicians are a "carnival of fools surrounded by jewels", I'm proud of each person who gives it their all so we can play rockstar for 90 minutes a night to the fans of this incredible music that BS&T is keeping alive. Us musicians always play every show for free, we just get paid well to travel and be away from our famlies. The crew is as much a part of this circus as the clowns on stage and we love them for what they do to keep us safe, happy and get us back home to our everyday lives that we love as much as our road family.

In case I didn't say it already today... THANK YOU! Without all of you this band doesn't have a gig and we are grateful for every one of you. I mean that sincerely.

Cheers to all!

BB

 

 

 

AUSTRALIA IS HOPPIN'

KANGAROO

Australia is a HOPPIN' country Peeps!! When we were in Perth there was time to visit a wildlife Sanctuary that was absolutley incredible. It was a treat to see these amazing animals in their natural habitat and to be able to get up close and personal with the native creatures that are normally so reclusive and only active around dusk & dawn. COOLNESS!!! I'll post more pics later when I have more time... That's not today though.

FLIGHT TO SYDNEY

After flying into Sydney yesterday we hit the road to perform @ The Juniors in our "home town". When we were here 18 months ago Sydney was our home base for travel on the east coast, it felt like home when we landed and checked into our hotel in Potts Point. These are BS&T's stomping grounds and we all enjoy the location, it's just 5-10 minutes (depending on how fast you walk) to all the shops and attractions that this fast pace city has to offer. I won't bore you with the usual shots of the Opera House & Skyline...FullSizeRender

Awe Shucks, I couldn't resist throwing out a shot from my hotel room that has a killer view of the city we are calling home for the rest of the week till we head off to Brisbane and on to the next gig.

DARLING HARBOR

I got out and walk-about to visit Darling Harbor for a bit of lunch and reminiscing. There is so much to do here and you could never fit all there is in one trip folks. I have my favorite food spots, hangouts and chill places that I always enjoy poppin' by, the harbor is one of them because there is a massive collection of old and new ships & submarines to take a glance at. The history of this city is rich in culture and makes you realize how young we are as a nation. I'm glad we have some down time after tonights show to recharge and recoup from the travel and shows over the past several weeks in Sydney so I can catch up on R&R and pick up gifts for everyone back in the states.

BST SYDNEY

The Juniors crowd treated BS&T right last night in Sydney and we will be playing right outside of town tonight for another packed Aussie house. I hope they can live up to the audience last night though, they were loving the music and players and gave back to us generously. This picture was taken by our keyboard player Adam Klipple's cousin who came out to support her family and his BS&T bandmates, a giant thank you to Melissa Gock for joining us and for letting me use her killer pic of us in action doing what we do best... PEEL BACK FACES WITH THAT GOOD OLE ROCK/JAZZ & ROLL!! CHEER MELISSA

Now I'm off to sound check for another round of facial peeling and Rock & Roll dealing. Check back in daily @ bobice.com to see even more of my road journey with BS&T on out tour of Jakarta/Australia/Hawaii. 

ROCKING FROM ADLAIDE TO MELBOURNE

BURNING UP THE BIKE

I took time off at the 1st of the year and missed the 2 week Florida tour because of my reoccurring stomach issues. I've been taking the Dr's prescriptions as directed, not just the medications but the advice to get a handle on my diet, lower my stress levels and get plenty of excersize. I thought the belly problems would be the thing that took me out, it might be the dawg gone excersize!!! 30 minutes on the elliptical bike then 30 minutes of Yoga every day is wearing me out, I do feel much better than I did a month ago though and Caroline might be pleased with some of the changes I'm making in spirit, body & mind...O.K. we all know ya can't fix CRAZY but 2 outta 3 ain't bad!!! Seriously though, I'm feeling better than I have in years and it's making a big difference in my life already.  

THE GOV ADELAIDE

We played a really cool venue called THE GOV in Adelaide the other night and the crowd we so gracious and gave back as much as we were giving from the stage. There was one lady who got up out of her seat and approached the stage 3 times and took hold of my hand, looked right into my eyes and said "You're all so lovely, I've loved BS&T my entire life and this is the best night I have ever had!!" That is such a complement to all of us in the band who love this music as much as all of you on the other side of the stage, because there has been so many Alumni of BS&T for a lifelong fan of this band to considered me and our band family in such high regards is a very special complement. I feel that my short time in this group has helped me become a better performer, vocalist and overall person. I'm grateful that I've had a chance to become an Alumni of 2 of the most iconic American powerhouses of music and television, not to mention enjoying a solo career that has introduced me to so many friends, fans & music lovers. It's very humbling to say the least, THANK YOU ALL!!!

FLIGHT TO MELBOURNE

Then off to the next town to do it all over again one more time. What spectacular views everywhere you look here in Aussieland! I have had a hard time keeping memory cleared from my iPhone to be able to take in all the beauty of this country, guess it's time to upgrade my Dropbox again.

INTERVIEW TIME

Once we arrived in Melbourne it was time to get to work doing interviews and press for the show tonight at The Palms @ Crown. I always love talking to the local interviewers and spreading the word about where you can catch the best show in town while you have the chance! Thanks for letting us pop in Dennis, we appreciate you giving Larry and I the mic to gab with you about the past, present and future of BS&T.

SOUNDCHECK THE PALMS THE CROWN

Now my BS&T brothers and I are about to give these folks at The Palms @ Crown in Melbourne a show to talk about till we return for a 3rd time to visit this incredible country in a year or 2. I've enjoyed myself so much these past 2 times that I might just make the move over to Australia after I retire and decide what I want to do when I grow up.... Maybe a COFFEE SHOP MUSIC VENUE!!! BO'S JOE?

 

 

ROCKIN FROM JAKARTA TO AUSTRALIA

BS&T rocked the JAVA JAZZ FESTIVAL 2 nights in a row and left it all on the stage for our friends in Indonesia. It was an honor to perform for such and incredible group of music lovers who are half the world away from where this band began and they show the same love for this music as our friends back state-side. BS&T has provided many firsts for me in my 3 years as part of the band and Jakarta was one of the coolest!! I LOVE MY JOB.

BST JAKARTA NIGHT 1

The first night was amazing, we really let'em have it folks. They were all about these BS&T players in JAKARTA!!

BST JAKARTA NIGHT 2

Night two was another killer performance from my brothers and I. I've said it time and time again that you never want to be the weak link in this musical chain of insane musicians. Never since American Idol have I been lucky enough to share the stage with such incredible performers, who I happen to love & respect as much off stage as on.

ELLIOT BB

Speaking of IDOL!!! Who did I run into in Jakarta? ELLIOT YAMIN!!!! One of the coolest katz on the face of the planet and one helluva performer in his own right. Elliot and I have shared some really fun moments on this earth during our friendship.... SOME I MOMENTS I CAN'T DARE MENTION!! What a great person and a dedicated friend and artist. Love ya Elliot, it was great to see you againg, wish we could've hung out more but the crazy schedule didn't leave us the time.

JAKARTA TO SYDNEY MED

Then it was off to Sydney, then a flight to Adelaide. We got to the hotel in time to grab a bite to eat at the coffee shop in the lobby and make some new friends Josh, Izzy & crew had great food and a really friendly staff at the "Local Grind". as a matter of fact I enjoyed it so much I joined my pals for a cup of JAVA before starting a run of interviews this morning for our show tonight.

INTERVIEWS FROM BED IN ADELAIDE

I Ade-Laide around in bed with my cup of "Local Grind' coffee while I chatted with the local station to promote the BS&T show here in Adelaide tonight. I hope we'll have a good crowd this evening, they'd better be ready to get their faces rocked off because BS&T came back to Aussieland with both barrels loaded, ready to kick some "yellow-tail" and take some names!! Please join us if you're in Adelaide or any of the other stops along the way on our 5 week tour of Jakarta, Australia, Hawaii.... THEN BACK HOME FOR A WEEK AT DISNEY PERFORMING FOR THE 2nd YEAR IN A ROW!!! I love taking the mouses money!! If BS&T play there 3 more years in a row Mickey & will be about even on the money side of things(LOL). The Bice kids & CAROLINE help keep the doors to The Magic Kingdom open as many times as I've taken them down for a visit.

I'm headed down to the gym for some Yoga & workout with our Keys player Adam... THEN BACK TO THE LOCAL GRIND HOUSE TO GET ALL JACKED UP ON ME COFFEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

PEACE, LOVE & PRAYERS TO ALL!

LAST NIGHTS SHOW IN JAKARTA WAS A BLAST!!!

BB JAVA STAGE

THE ROOM WASN'T EMPTY FOR LONG FOLKS

BST DOUBLES

MY BS&T BROTHERS AND I TAKE FUN SERIOUSLY

JOIN US FOR OUR LAST SHOW TONIGHT JAKARTA

WE LOVE YOU DEB

Why did we all of us music loving, carefree, friends of American Idol get turned into a family we've called "THE PEEPS" for over a decade now. Crazy???

We have seen some Peeps move on to other (BETTER) things, watched some move away and lose track, some lost interest in ole BB when they found out he was a Christian/Conservative who doesn't cheat on his wife and pretend to be a ROCKSTAR as much as he puts God 1st, Then Family, Then Country, The Music Biz. And we've also lost several of our Peeps because it was their time to leave this earth and experience whats next for them out there in the universe. Unfourtunatly last night we lost another one of our dedicated Peeps who we all adore and cherish. Deb Charnesky won her battle with Cancer on Wed night at 7:30pm... I got this news as I was boarding a plane to Hong Kong for a 5 week tour and needless to say although I knew she was ill I have been in tears for most of my 16 hr flight. I'm just speachless. Deb was a special lady who ment a lot to many of us in the Peep Familyt we have created together over the years and her kind spirit and laughter will be missed. The 1st thing I wanted to do on my lay-over between flights is to remind you Peeps of how special you are to me and by letting Ashlee and Deb's family know that we are all praying for them and have them in our thoughts.

Lecias Party 2007

Our Peep Pal "Bolisa" dropped me an email on my This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  email to let me know that Deb was in failing health and that if I wanted to speak to her I needed to do it ASAP. By the time I finally reached her she was unable to speak and already losing her strength, I was only able to leave her a message (while trying to hold back tears) telling her to stay strong and know that we all love her and are better off as individuals for having her as part of our lives. I then was able to speak to her daughter Ashlee and let the family know my love for them all will never waiver or die and that we will continue to pay tribute to ALL of our Peeps who've moved on to the next relm. I'm gratefull that Ashlee took the time to speak to me and said she would play the message I left Deb so she know how much the Bice Family love her.

Berea OH 2006

Thank you Lisa for keeping me in the know about Deb and her illness. I left "ANTI-SOCIAL MEDIA" because of the way the lying media twisted my words, but more over as I saw the hateful, horrible treatment of my Peeps and the physical threats to my family and I it was enough. I'm not going to return to Twitter,Facebook, but not full time and I won't be communicating on their platforms because I said I was going to leave the platforms due to their lack of tolerance to ALL PEOPLES VIEWS. And unlike the Hollywood type hypocrites (I'LL MOVE OUTTA THE COUNTRY IF THIS PERSON) I do what I say I'll do. But I've lost contact with some of the very special people who bring joy to my life and also remind me that I'm NOT A ROCKSTAR, I'm A ROCKIN' DAD, HUSBAND & FRIEND to all those around me that I love. So I'll pop in and check on you all more ther on you pages, but you'll still have to visit me here on BOBICE.COM to see my personal thoughts and photos. If it wasn't for Lisa contacting me I would'nt have known about losing Deb until I returned home from this whirl-wind tour I'm currently on, so thank you for coming over to my site and contacting me Lisa.

Christmas Party 2009

Friends, Pals, Peeps, FAMILY... I love you Deb and I'm very proud that God decided to place you into our Peep Family life, even if it was for such a short time my love. Dedicated to Deb and all the other Peeps we've lost over the past 11 plus years Caroline and I decided to throw a BICE FAMILY CHRISTMAS PARTY in 2017. We will be celebrating the lives of those who remain in our hearts and on our minds with a special show from the ENTIRE BICE FAMILY (EXCEPT CALEB, "I DON'T SING IN PUBLIC DAD!!) I have a feeling that it'll be in ALABAMA this year and I'd love to discuss using one of my favorite spots for the celebration. I've missed you all over the past two years that I've dedicated to BS&T, but you're out of sight and never outta mind. This year we will begin our tradition again for all of those who want to join us to remeber our PEEP FAMILY that can no longer be with us here on earth, but they'll always be with us in spirit.

 

I LOVE YOU DEB, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE A SPECIAL PART OF MY LIFE AND MY CAREER, YOU NEVER GAVE UP ON ME KIDDO... YOU AND AN MANY OTHERS NEVER LET THIS DRUNK/DRUGGY EXCEPT THAT, THAT WAS ALL I WOULD EVER BE. AND BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU MY WIFE AND CHILDREN HAVE A HAPPY, PRESENT, QUALITY, DAD WHO WILL NEVER LET HIMSELF FALL BACK INTO HIS OLD WAYS. YOU HELPED TO GIVE ME THE GIFE OF A LIFE I WAS WALKING THROUGH, NOW I LIVE IT DAILY BECAUSE OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

Till we meet again Deb.

CALEB & DAD @ GEORGIA AQUARIUM W/3RD GRADE CLASS

CALEB PALS GA AQU

It was such an honor to be invited to chaperone for the field-trip to the Georgia Aquarium with the 3rd grade class, both Caleb and I enjoyed visiting this amazing Aquarium that we are lucky enough to have right here in our own back yard. 2 of his friends Tatum & Sam hung out with Caleb and I throughout the day as we experienced all the wonders that this deep sea aquarium has to offer. Check out some of our favorite pics of the day!

GA AQUARIUM

The Georgia Aquarium is an incredible place to take the family for a day of educational fun that has a little something for everyone in the group. This is the view from above the tank where the marine animals have plenty of room to roam the open watters of this huge aquatic tank. There were Whale Sharks, Rays, Dolphins, Sea Lions... EVERTHING YOU COULD IMAGINE IN THIS TANK!!!!! Be careful not to fall in though folk. CHOMP! CHOMP!!

CALEB W PINGUINS

C.J. Decided to CHILL with the Penguins, until they started eyeing his leftover cookie a bit to much. EAT UP QUICK CALEB!!! You can't trust a bird that's dressed that fancy son, they are embezzling cash from somewhere to be able to afford such nice tuxedos. I'm watching you Penguins!!

CALEB W PIRANHAS

You showed a lot of courage with this one Caleb... Everybody know not to mock the Piranhas!!! Especially when you have such a cute fish face C.J.

ALBINO ALLIGATORS

The favorite animal on our list for the day had to be the Albino Alligator, they were so impressive that Caleb picked this reptilian to be the main focus of his essay that he will be writing about his day with the 3rd grade class at the Georgia Aquarium. I have to admit that the Albino Alligator is not the most popular or even the favorite of many of the other children on the trip... But C.J. always thinks outside the box, shares his opinion openly and always works hard to get the job done right. I'm sure his essay will be a hit no matter what animal he picks!!

KIDS ALBINO ALLIGATORS

Thanks for letting your old man tag along with you for the day Caleb, I hope I did'nt cramp your style to much buddy. I'll always be here for you no matter what you need from me my beautiful son.  I hope you know how much I respect you for always being yourself and for always putting others before your own needs and wants. You're a wise, generous, kind, old soul Caleb James. I learn from you daily.

I Love You

Dad
