Sonny Boy’s Story

This story is about the life of an Afro-American predisposed to chronic occurrences of diverse addictions. Not all of the addictions where alcohol and drug related; while some addictions were beneficial rather than detrimental. Over the years these addictions fluctuated and took on many forms of behaviors; which have been classified as personality disorders that have been psycho analyzed as being preoccupied, over indulged, obsessive and compulsive. These conditions have resulted in a lifelong journey of adverse and cordial circumstances that have unfolded into a most peculiar story. It is the elaboration of this story that are revealed in these writings.


These writings are arranged in a chronological sequence that covers a historical time-line starting at the dawn of World War II, and ends in the present—2012. The geographical territories span from the East Coast to the West Coast, and includes major U.S. cities such as: Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Oakland and Denver. These narratives are intended to provide an insider’s view of binge alcoholism and hard-core drug use and dealings. In addition, other significant accounts from these memoirs include: 1) laboring in the hi-tech industry, 2) entertaining as a musician, 3) ministering as a cult buster, 4) ballroom dancing, and 5) being suspected as a counter-revolutionary.

The stories included here are all based on true events; however, similar to a typical movie script, a dispersal of fictitious incidents of adventure, drama and humor have been intermingled throughout for amusement. A statement of diversion that represents these writings is “All names have been changed to protect the guilty,” just opposite the lead in of the old Dragnet episodes. Moral standards of written expression are maintained throughout; there’s no foul language, nor detailed explicit sex. As an Afro-American raised in an eastern metropolitan urban enclave—Philadelphia—the social heritage from that environment is reflected throughout these writings.

This story is presented as POST. Each POST is a section of a chapter, with the most recent POST displayed at the top, and the oldest displayed at the bottom. The sequence can be determined by the date posted at the upper left of the POST. Chapters can be accessed by searching the right sidebar for the chapter name (Chapters). Chapters are given alphabetical notations; i.e., Chapter A. As POST fill a chapter, the next chapter will be displayed as the POST progress through the book.

Example 1: The first chapter is titled Chap A: The Last OD. The second chapter is titled: Chap B: Beginnings in South Philly.

Example 2: To read all the POST in the first chapter, click on Chap A; The Last OD. The entire chapter will be displayed with Conclusion A displayed at the top.

A more efficient and easier way to maneuver around this site is to simply click on the white BlogDogIt octagon in the column to the right, which essentially is a listed table of contents.

Until further notice, beginning August 19, 2013, POST will be posted twice or three times per week.

    This is some really interesting, thought provoking and educational reading you are offering the World. I have featured your website on my blog (BlogDogIt.com) in the “In The Spotlight” section.

    Featured Article Link: http://blogdogit.com/article.php?story=20130417102619538

    I have created a “Table of Contents” there linking to your story -as much for myself as anyone else seeking an easy method of navigating through this most excellent collection of posts.

    I realize the story is ongoing so I will try to keep up with your updates as best I can.

    Thank You, Sir!

    • Masodo, thanks for your all inspiring comment and featuring my story on your blog. Gee, I hadn’t realized I had written so much stuff, until I see it all laid out in your table of contents. You and Paul (another follower) really motivate me to continue my postings.

      I’m roughly half way through, as maybe you can all ready tell from the time sequence of the post. There’s a lot more to come. I’ll be revealing some pretty dramatic situations that sometimes seem to be totally false; however, each story segment is based on real events and circumstances as was already stated in my HOME page.

      Writing this story has dredged up many happy moments, and sometimes disappointing times where I wish I had taken a different path. On the other hand, I guess I should be satisfied, since I’m happy with my family as it currently stands. Anyway, I’ll probably be adding additional comments to your comment. So for now I’ll sign off. Again much thanks. It helps to keep me motivated.

        I think that everything published was very logical.
        But, what about this? what if you were to create a awesome headline?
        I am not saying your content isn’t good., however suppose you added something that
        makes people desire more? I mean Sonny Boy’s Story The memoirs of Sonny Boy Thompson is a little plain.
        You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create
        news headlines to get people to click. You might try adding a
        video or a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to
        say. In my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
