Hello my friends, it has been a long week and it is not over yet. I am still rambling. That includes visiting the sick and shut-ins, such as James “Biddy” Wood in Harbor Hospital, who is, at press time, still in hospice on the 4th floor. He is still wiggling his toes and plucking his finger when he hears music playing. He recognizes and lights up like a Christmas tree when all of the musicians, friends and nightclub patrons stop by to say hello. Believe me he enjoys the love and attention. So if you get a chance, stop by and say hello to this Baltimore icon.
One of the highlights of my week was the Banderleros Motorcycle Club Homecoming Parade, which started at their clubhouse, 2025 Edmondson Ave., with the beautiful bikes lined up in formation with the men and women uniformed in their black and gold colors, and the limo carrying the founders, followed by the vintage cars and the marching band, while the community of folks lined up on both side of the streets dancing and waving at the beautiful site. The music from the DJ playing oldies and line dances put the icing on the cake. Dr. Louise Johnson was the mistress of ceremonies. The members are: Naughty1Da (Banderleros Belair Chapter); Steadman (Banderleros Belair Chapter); Russell Saucy (Banderleros Belair Chapter); John the Baptist, Gray Dog (Sgt. At Arms); Lucas, Houdni, Killer, Overload, MJ, Big E, Puerto Rico; Speed (president); Wide Receiver (treasurer); Smiley (secretary) and Dee. I just love their nicknames. For more information about this renowned historical club, call 410-804-9334.
This is also Morgan State University Homecoming Week with their gala Black Tie event on Oct. 7 at Martin’s West, 6817 Dogwood Rd.
