This is Maebri Cole, daughter of my good friends Matt and Kara. She greeted Matt Friday morning by saying, “Look, Daddy, I have a pink hippo and I have Rick James on my shirt.” She followed this up by saying, “Good morning, daddy”.

If her statements are any indication of where I rate in life, I’m not sure if it’s a good or a bad thing. My new slogan could be:

Rick Lee JamesMusic that’s nearly as good as a PINK HIPPO!
