FABULOUS AROUND HOUSTON
H.A.T.S. AND T.I.E.S. AT HOLMAN ST. BAPTIST CHURCH
Dr. Seuss’ “Cat In A Hat,” didn’t have anything on the good sustahs and their fabulous hats last Sunday, as TSU celebrated the beginning of their homecoming week with a church service at Holman Street Baptist Church, Manson B. Johnson, II Pastor.
The acronyms stand for, Honoring Academically Talented Scholars to Impact and Empower Students. Alumni, students and faculty and friends of TSU showed up to show their support for their university. Eva Pickens presented a resolution of partnership between Holman Street and Texas Southern to mentor students as a part of Dr. John Rudley’s (TSU president) Joshua McMackle TIGER Mentoring program. This year’s mentors of the year were: Mrs. Janice Newman, TSU’s Chief of Staff; Mr. and Mrs. Abner Anderson and Dr. Sannie Ragan. Dr. Sunny Ohia accepted a check to TSU’s Scholarship Fund from the Rev. Manson B. Johnson, II.
I was a bit disappointed that more TSU alumni were not there to support their alma mater, but baby, the hats showed up and showed out. I can’t really give these hats justice by talking about them, I must show them to you.
My hat goes off to the absolute queen hats of the day. Eva Pickens’ black rhinestoned trimmed hat with off white blinged out leaves, and First Lady of Holman Street, Zelda Johnsons’ cold, black hat with a tiara type trim around it; and the absolute, cold bloodest hat was sported by Queen Diva Georgia Provost, donning a black hat completely covered with Swarovski crystals: I know that hat had to have weighed 3 pounds! Boss Lady even had her black, couture lid on. Ladies, y’all did that!

WHISPERS IN THE WIND - (A LITTLE DIRT FOR THE DAY)
I overheard a conversation the other day, lady says she likes to collect souvenirs from every place she visits. So, you may ask, what is wrong with that? Well, every restaurant, bar, and social event she attends, she may take the crisp white napkin, the sharp steak knife, the sherry glass her drink came in, heck, even the candle display off the table. Newsflash, that is not collecting souvenirs, that’s stealing!
Ever heard of the word, kleptomaniac? Baby, somebody better tell her to cut it out, not fabulous.
