Storyline

J.J. begins coming home with new art supplies to the point that Florida accuses him of "finding" things. However, he soon reveals that he has a patron who was impressed by his work. However, when J.J. mentions that the man's name is LeRoy Jackson, James Sr. throws a fit because a man with the same name, who was James' best friend, lost all the money they were saving to buy a gas station on a horse. When Jackson arrives at the Evans' apartment, it proves to be the same man and James promptly throws him out. Unfortunately, this doesn't sit well with J.J., who runs away and moves in with Jackson. Now Florida must find a way to bring her son back and reconcile Junior and Senior. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

JJ moves out
16 December 2016 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Junior Gets a Patron" opens with JJ's increased number of art supplies suggesting to his mother that he has resorted to 'finding' things again. James is pleased to learn that his son has acquired a patron who owns a small boutique where JJ can paint in his storage area. Unfortunately, the name Leroy Jackson (Edmund Cambridge) reminds his father of his former best friend, when they worked together at a gas station, intending to use $250 to start their own business (Leroy blew the entire amount on a losing horse). When his father refuses to allow JJ to have a patron who betrayed him, his son moves out to live and work over at Leroy Jackson's boutique.
