Man, you have no idea how long Reggie and I have waited for this moment where we can finally say, “The Just Ask Bus is ready to roll!”
Thanks to the kindness and generosity of John Coleman, at Auto Upholstery by Coleman in Houston, we have a totally new interior with seats, cabinets and everything! I can’t tell you how proud I am to have our new bus represent the Just Ask Foundation as we raise awareness of neurofibromatosis throughout the United States and Canada!
We are so grateful to all of our friends who donated their time and money to make this bus a reality! Of course, we’re broke now but very happy! Thank you all for your nonstop support!!! Onward and upward!
Reggie and I had no idea what to expect but what we witnessed just blew us away!
Try to imagine 350 half-naked runners taking to the streets of Houston in celebration of their fundraising for the Children’s Tumor Foundation.
350 of the nicest, most kind-hearted people in the world who not only ran in their undies to raise awareness of and money for neurofibromatosis, the same disorder that Reggie has. Money raised during the Run will help fund clinical trials, discover better treatments and hopefully find a cure!
The Just Ask Tour rolled into the Cottonwood Restaurant in Houston, TX today to help support one of our biggest supporters, the Pysch Ward Sirens and the Houston Roller Derby!
Today, Reggie and I sampled some of the best chili in the history of Psych Ward Sirens Annual Chili Cook-Off!
It was so great seeing our old friends and meeting new ones! One of the great things about driving around the country promoting awareness of neurofibromatosis is meeting all of the wonderful, compassionate people who come up to just ask us about NF.
In preparation for our Just Ask World Tour promoting awareness of neurofibromatosis, we are preparing special ads that we will send to the newspapers of the cities we are about to visit to see if they would run them as a Public Service Announcement (meaning for FREE!) while we are in town or afterward as a reminder or before as a teaser.
We have a bunch of really cool headlines but this is, by far, my favorite!
If anyone would like copies of the ads to try to get your local newspapers to run them, I would be happy to supply the files. Like Reggie says, Just Ask!
Today, Reggie and I went to Saltgrass Steak House, in Meyerland Center, and were treated like visiting Royalty! There were at least 20 people waiting but they seated us immediately!
The Meyerland Saltgrass has always been one of our favorite restaurants in Houston because they are just great…fun, caring people who are super attentive and go above and beyond in making you feel at home!
Our waitress today was Caitlyn who was just terrific! Thank you, everyone! And the food was outstanding, too!
Welcome to JustAskFoundation.org! Well, you got to hand it to Reggie, he knows where all the great parties are with the best food and drink and the best people! He couldn’t have done any better than Sunday Night when he ventured over to his friend’s house, world renowned photographer Greg Gorman’s Hollywood digs! gormanphotography.com I hope they mentioned neurofibromatosis in between all this other stuff! And Rick Moors from The Bonedaddys showed up which is always a fun thing!
Our fearless leader, Reggie W Bibbs, and some guy in a ball cap that looks a lot like the famous comedian from Saturday Night Live and Weeds, Kevin Nealon, catching up on old times! Kevin is a super supporter of the Just Ask Foundation, awareness of neurofibromatosis, and Reggie and even has a link to Reggie’s site on his homepage, kevinnealon.com.
It’s not uncommon for Kevin to call or text Reggie from the road just to see how he was doing. He’s a great guy! Reggie first met Kevin and his wife Susan after a show in Manhattan Beach when Reggie and friend, Scott Dickson, went to the show. After the show, Kevin came out to meet Reggie and Scott. They had such a good talk, Kevin went backstage and brought his wife, Susan, to meet Reggie.
Sorry, Scott, but apparently you didn’t make as big an impression.
Reggie presented a Just Ask t-shirt to both Susan and Kevin and a beautiful friendship arose.
Now, whenever Kevin comes to Houston for a show, there are usually 8 passes at Will Call waiting for us. One year, he wore his Just Ask shirt during his comedy routine. But what’s really cool is hanging out with Kevin before and after the show.
Kevin Nealon is, quite possibly, the nicest person on Planet Earth. And we are so appreciated of his friendship!
