Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an
I was honored to work with Andy Davis aka Andyman from 2005-2007 at CD101 in Columbus. Prior to that I was a long time fan of CD101 and of Andyman - the true heart of Columbus radio.

I am still in shock that CD101's beloved DJ Andyman passed away this Saturday while vacationing with his family in Michigan. My heart goes out to his dear wife Molly and his three children Johnny, Oliver, and Sammy. Donations can be made to the Andy Man memorial fund at any Huntington National Bank branch or may be dropped of at CD101

I know most of my bloggy readers don't know CD101 and don't know Andyman, but he was an amazing DJ and friend. Oddly enough what I will remember him most for is his deep love for his family and for the kids.

He hosted Andyman-A-Thon during Christmas holidays. Andyman would spend 48 hours straight on-air receiving pledges to play song requests. The event benefited children's charities. I just remember one year when he was drunk on lack of sleep and talking about how much he loved his wife. He was all about his family.

I actually named my daughter after hearing him play the song Funky Ceili on air on March 17th, 2006. No one at the station knew I was pregnant (first trimester nervousness), but he played that song and I had a name for my first born.

As soon as I told everyone my news he was the first to congratulate me with a huge hug, and whispered in my ear that he was jealous. Less than a week later he announced that his wife was pregnant. The rest of the year was spent swapping stories about the kidlets and playdates. He told me the best part about having kids is the fact that you get to pick on them.

I saw him a few months ago at Skully's where he immediately whipped out his cell phone and we swapped pictures of the kids.

Yes he loved musice, was the heart of Columbus radio, but what I will remember most is that he was his deep love for his wife and his children.

So here is to you Andyman "Taking Calls" in heaven, and yeah I know it's a "good story...could have used a vampire or two."

Miss you....
