IT'S JERRY I SEE IN TENNESSEE!
On Good Friday, Jerry was on his way to the US. Why of all days, on a Good Friday? That's a long story. And in answer to that, he flew because he just had to. Ok, that's how much I'm willing to say as yet. Haha LOL Boo.
At St. Louis, his old-time friend, Marcel, whisked him for a 5 hour drive to Memphis to see another friend, Nonie.
No, Jerry is not trying to abscond from any obligation, if that ever crossed your mind. He is not wanted by the BIR or NBI for anything. But just the same, I'm saving you from the long and mind-boggling story why Jerry had to fly to the US in a huff. Hehehe.
With that said, let me just share with you some pictures he sent me through email.
