“Yes I get a lot of licks and I understand it, there are some people that are happy that I get licks that’s fine…I can take care of myself. I ain’t forget. I have been here a long time and some people think I born quiet. Sometimes I do just let sleeping dogs dem lie…One thing I will do, I will be true to myself, I will be fair, be honest…” Hon.
