Thank You Villagers, I am Humbled........................

I am drunk, and I almost crashed another car - bad grandpa has to stop drunk-driving or he ain't gonna be around for long. But that's a story for another day.

Today, I want to celebrate you. I want to celebrate everybody from the 'worst' Raila supporter to the most rabid Uhuru sycophant. As an older man, I have to say you have shown me incredible respect and kindness. Often, when I have gone overboard you have chided me gently. On a few occasions you have told me off, which is OK.

It is a testament to your respect of me that even die-hards like @zzzzzzz , @Jirani , @Grundy , @coldpilsner , @Eng'iti etc have never insulted or spoken a bad word against me, grandpa, despite my bad language sometimes. This goes to show that you guys are good and great. You respect age. You are good Kenyans. You were brought up well (except yule Bukusu sijui shida yake ni ni nini?)

In the next few hours, I am going to achieve 20,000 likes for my posts here. 20,000. That means that many of you have, at one time or another, appreciated my contributions. I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You affirm me, and in doing so you affirm yourself.

I do not take this lightly. As a career health/communications expert, I am always appreciative of feedback, and especially so when that feedback helps me retrospect and introspect.

I thank you all, villagers, and ask that you never ever give in to anything lower than free speech. About 98% of you are younger than me but I can say, without a shadow of doubt or risk of contradiction, you are great human beings.

I respect your 20,000 likes, and I promise to work to be a better grandpa, UOTP or RWNEBP! I am humbled and greatly inspired.
