WOW!!! This is simply the word I use to describe the first weekend of June this year 2014.

That weekend has marked one of the biggest mild stones of my life. Being able to spend that weekend with a few of my closes friends was great. Being able to get together with friends and make new memories at the age of 44 is something not to many of us can do. We all know friends, real friends are hard to come by and that much more harder to keep after so many years. So when times like this happen it really means a lot to some people. I have shared a lot of this material and pictures on my face book page already so I know some of you are probably saying, "OK I get it, enough with the picks" or " They think they all that" or "Look at them punk ass niggas", excuse my language but unfortunately thats how many people speak these days. Its all good though, you all can say exactly what you like, all I know is to be able to make memories at 44 like the memories you make as teenagers is priceless.

We started the weekend off awesome, first night just kicking it having a few and catching up on old times. Took a couple of pictures and just chilled and enjoyed being able to catch up.

The second day you know we had to get it in. Went to the gym to blow out the biceps and the chest to get us ready for the night out on the town that Sat night at Miami Hard Rock Cafe.

Click the play button on this video and you can see how we got it in once again like we used to do back at the Diamond Gym Days in the EL town.
I don't want you all to take the title of this blog and blow it all out of proportion. We are in no means trying to say we made it to millions or celebrity status, but we did come a long way from where we all pretty much grew up doing things that most people can not make it out of. Growing up in the little town of Elmira NY produced some really bad choices from most of us. Myself who is know as Suga Bear in the town of Elmira, Terrence (Bilal-naji) Jones known as Milk and Kevin Williams better know as Cheese. I'm also not saying we had a terrible life in Elmira either, we made some pretty good memories and had a lot of fun at times, but the choices we made stunted our growth. The Choice to indulge in the street life hindered us from moving forward sooner in life as we should have. So what I mean by the title of this blog is we have come a long way and made it to the point in our life were we now make the decisions not to make them choices anymore that will stop us from moving forward. We are hear at this point, enjoying each others company in our early and middle 40's with promising careers and making new memories. what more can you ask for in life. 
We have decided to get together every year about this time. First weekend of June seems to be the right time to plan this trip. At first we said it would be just a Cheeba Crew Thing. Just to get the cheeba crew together every year to catch up and make new memories, but we have decided there are a lot other friends that we have good memories with from the town of Elmira that we would love to be able to get with and have a great time as we did. This year it was Myself, Milk, and Cheese who put the initial gathering together. We were able to meet up with a couple of old school friends that are already living in the Miami area which were John-Vip Harriel and Derrick Dey Dey Johnson and I can't forget we also had a old school female from back in the day join us. Ayanna Hughey who was also good to see after so many years. And ladies you are also welcome to join us if you like. Just reach out to one of us. There are plenty of ladies from the town that we all have some good memories with as well.
Now let me tell you, Dey Dey is the man, he showed some big love to the fellows and I will never forget that. A true champ and life of the party, I'm really looking forward to being able to ball with him again. Thanks again for showing so much love Dey Dey.
Again instead of just making this a Cheeba Crew Reunion, this is what we are trying to have happen for next year and the years moving forward. To have all the old school fellows start getting together on a yearly basis to make sure we all keep up with each other and start making some new memories. We are all not getting any younger and we all have shared some pretty cool moments together and have built up some pretty good friendships through the years. Through the good times and the bad times if we can still pick up the phone or give a shout out on face book then its worth getting together and making new memories. So moving forward hear is a list of fellows we would like to see join us in the future: 
Avery Ashley, Patrick Smart, Jessie Knocks, Jermey Scharborough, Allen Brooks, Alfie Brooks, Marlow Brooks, Spencer Golden, Alton Thomas, Chris Brooks, Joseph Gaskins, Johnny Moore, and Darron Brooks.
There are alot of other names I did not mention but you know who you are, if your still cool with us then just reach out if you would like to join us on this every year adventure.So listen people, again, friendships are hard to come by. If you have a friend or friends that have been in your life for sometime now and you have made it through some hard times while sticking by each others side no matter what, weather it be borrowing money or going to there rescue or just listening when they need a lending ear and especially when no matter how much time go by without you seeing that person and you can still pick up the phone and call them no matter what, thats a good friend and you should do everything in your power to keep that friend. Be a good friend and always let them know your thinking of them. I know I have a couple of good buddies in these two cats and I'm looking forward to making many more wonderful memories with them.
And lets not forget my new saying, in the words of LIL JOHN, TURN DOWN FOR WHAT!!!!!!!
