Man Strips In Front of Baptist Preacher!

Image
Hey folks, I have to get back to posting positive stuff!  Here is a good one.  Bill sent this to me. Not only is this funny, I think the guy stripping is darn sexy too.  Good thing he didn't strip around me. Just saying.  

The Conservative Republicans' Delusion

Image
During the Clinton years I had to endure a constant harangue from my conservative Republican friends and family about "The Rapist" (i.e. Bill Clinton) and "The Bitch" (Hilary Clinton).  It got so bad that I hated to visit my Mother and my brother who lived with her because they would work themselves up into quite a lather after listening to Rush Limbaugh.  Hey, I wasn't too thrilled with Clinton either after he double-crossed the GLBT community by signing into the stupid "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law and Defense of Marriage Act.  But that didn't make a difference to them, they felt they had to hold me personally responsible that "The Rapist" was president.  Never mind that the Clinton Years were some of the best for the economy of this country in a generation.  No, the GOP Hate Machine was in full force to delegitimize Clinton by impeaching him.  Of course Clinton was reelected for another four year term thus throwing the Republ

My Friend

Image
2010 My friend, who shall remain nameless to protect his privacy will be moving into an assisted care facility next week.  Actually, he needs total care but his partner is with him and will help him. This picture was taken in the summer of 2010, the last time my friend visited me and Bill at our home.  He almost backed into the house.  Backing out of the driveway, he almost knocked over our neighbor's mailbox.  After those near misses we decided that was the last time we could have him drive his own car over to our house.  Actually, we were more afraid that he would injure himself or someone else on Route 1, which he has to cross to get to our house. I won't go into all the details of my friend's decline only to say it is a combination of Parkinson's and dementia.  The last time I saw him was last week.  He was very confused and paranoid.  I'm not sure if he even knew who I was.  I'm kneeling in on the left, my friend standing behind me- Ft. Devens,

Meet Dr. Spo Buffet Dinner Menu

Image
(Double click to enlarge) Hey Spo fans!  Here is the menu for the buffet dinner for Dr. Spo which will be held at the Inn at Canal Square in Lewes, Delaware, Saturday, March 23rd from 6 pm to 8 pm.   The Nage Restaurant of Rehoboth Beach (and Washington D.C.) will be supplying the buffet.  The Nage has catered many events at the Inn (where I work part-time as a front desk clerk) and I can attest they are the best!  Usually I get the leftovers, this time I'll be up front (nice change folks!)  Go here for more information on The Nage Restaurant. Based on attendance so far, the cost per person is $25.00.  That includes an open bar of white or red wine (or water or soda for those who prefer non-alcoholic liquid refreshments).   Our "Meet Dr. Spo" event is coming along nicely folks.  Already we have four reservations at the hotel for out of state bloggers.  Several local bloggers may also attend (only Cubby has confirmed so far) for a "day trip."   Th

Fun Romney Loser iMovie!

Image
Hey folks!  Spent all day making this new iMovie.  Oh I do love making movies. My friend Don McK. sent me a fun compilation of photos of the Republican losers.  By the way, do you think the Republicans learned anything from their loss?  Uh......I don't think so.  Take a gander below of the newly appointed House of Representatives committee chairmanships.  Notice what they have in common?  Ah yes, ALL WHITE MEN .   Keep on keep on Rethugs Republicans.   Here's a clue guys, the Angry White Man vote is shrinking.  Something you all might want to think about if you ever plan to win another presidential election.  Just saying.  

Brad Pitt Makes a Douche Commercial!

Image
OMG!  Did you see the new Chanel No. 5 commercial Brad Pitt made?   OMG! This is the worst piece of drek I've seen since the infamous "Tank Commercial" that Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis made to show his bonafidas (balls) as a tough puppy.   The Dukakis "Tank Commercial" ended up making the former  Massachusetts governor a laughing stock of the world.  Not the result Governor Dukakis was looking for.  Snoopy in a Tank The same thing will happen with this commercial Brad Pitt made for Chanel No. 5.  First of all, does anyone know ANY MEN who are going to buy Chanel No. 5 just because Brad uses it?  What's it smell like, Movie Star Sweat? I admit, I've never been a Brad Pitt fan.   Sure, he's handsome and a good actor but to me he's just way too full of himself.  And don't even get me started on the whole Angelina Jolie and Adopting a Kid From Every Nation thing.  It seems like every time I see this d

Tis the Season

Me & Mom with my Christmas cards - Philadelphia - 1978 Doesn't it seem like we just celebrated Christmas a few months ago?  I don't know about you, but when I was a kid I could wait for Christmas to get here.  It seemed like there was about 18 months between Christmases.  Now it seems like six or eight months. BAM!  Here we are again.  Black Friday was yesterday.  Now today we have something called "Small Business Friday" whatever THAT is supposed to be.  Sounds like another made up shopping day to me. Back in The Day, I used to get all caught up in the Christmas  shopping frenzy.  Oh yes, I did the shopping for my Mom, father, nieces, nephew (only have ONE nephew thank you), and My Bill.  Also got caught up in shopping for friends and co-workers.  Years ago I stopped that nonsense.  Not that I'm a "Bah Humbug" or anything like that (Heaven forfend), I just stopped it one year to see what happened.  Would I be disowned, disavowed, discombobul

Thanksgiving 2012

Image
Me (with the hoagie), my Mom and my brother Isaac - 1954 This Thanksgiving is almost over but for the shopping.  Looking out from the back of my house I can see the stream of headlights of shoppers headed down Route 1 to the Rehoboth Outlet Malls and WalMart, which are open tonight.  Are you kidding?  I wish I was but I'm not.  You won't see me there. Bill and I spent a quiet Thanksgiving here at home.  That's the way we usually pass the holiday.  A long time ago I used to get caught up in the tradition of making a big Thanksgiving dinner but since Bill and I don't eat that much, most of the food goes to waste.  It's not that I don't enjoy Thanksgiving, I do.  But I just can't get up the enthusiasm and energy to go through all of THAT for Thanksgiving. Places set  for Thanksgiving Guests - 2006 For many years my longtime friend Bob had all us single (and married) gay men over to his house for a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner.  That was very

Bum Leg!

Image
Two days ago I twisted my leg.  Yesterday at work (at the hotel) I did a lot of running around.  Giving tours of the three suites by the canal, up and down those spiral staircases, running back to the front desk to answer the phone, running upstairs to get the TV working in Room 302 (didn't work, had to move them).  With all that activity, by the time my co-worker Robert called me I was in excruciating pain. Not "kidney stone pain" (which is a pain so great you want to die) but painful enough to bring tears to my eyes.   Robert asked if I would like him to come in and take over the rest of my shift.  Reluctantly I said "Yes!" I really didn't think I was going to make it to the end of my shift.  Plus I had come in two hours earlier.  I hobbled out of there and managed to drive home, even though I was in a great deal of pain. Bill was surprised to see me come home from work early.  I told him why I left work.  He was concerned.  It is at times like th

Prostate Update

Image
Filling out the paperwork in the office - I'm getting pretty good at this Just returned from my morning visit to my urologist.  So here's the deal. He examined my prostate, the ONLY way to start out the week.  Yep, the rubber glove and KY lubricant.  Okay, okay, TMI. Here's what he found.  An unexpected "bump" on one side of my prostate but no "rough" patches which usually indicate prostate cancer.  However, he did recommend that I get the biopsy to rule out that I don't have prostate cancer.  He said it would be useless to treat me for another prostate condition if I already had prostate cancer so let's get "that out of the way."  I agreed with him.  My biopsy is scheduled for 8:30 am, January 28th, 2012.   Don't cry for me Argentina . It is what it is.  It could be worse. The company that makes Twinkies could go bankrupt.  "No Twinkies?"  Say it isn't so!

Another Con Man Bites The Dust

Image
Yes folks, yet another con man revealed.  This time it is the much revered General David Petraeus. The almost God like figure that George Bush couldn't get his nose far enough up his ass.  Yes, General David Petraeus was caught dicking his biographer.  The man who so loved the camera before he was revealed as just another egomaniac who believed his own press, went in the back door to Senate hearings that are trying to gin up a Watergate like controversy so they can delegitimize our duly elected president.  Yes folks, those same Rethuglicans Republicans are at it again but I digress.  That is a subject for another blog posting.  Yes folks, our BRAVE general snuck in the back door.  Need I say more? Oh, I think I will.  Here is a partial gallery of other con men, i.e. phonies who were found out.  So many, so little time.  One good thing, we have found out about them before they could do any real harm.  No, let me take that back.  Petraeus did talk President Obama into a surge

Reading Minds

Image
Didn't you, as a kid, wish you had magic powers like reading minds or being invisible?  I did.  I thought "how cool would it be to read someone's mind."   Another of my childhood fantasies, other than the standard gay child's fantasy of Prince Charming stopping by and carrying me away on his white horse to live HAPPILY EVER AFTER, was to be an invisible man.  That way I could slip in and out of people's lives and know what they were saying and doing without them knowing that I knew. Long sentence there, I hope that made sense. Guess what folks?  I think I can do that.  Yes, another of the many benefits of getting older.  I can read minds!  Yessum, I surely can.  I still haven't figured how to be invisible but I don't have to because I can read people's minds. So you ask, "How can he do that?"  Very simple, body language.  I think most of us, once we have reached a certain age and even those much younger recognize certain body la

I'm Tweeting!

Image
A little dabble here and a little dabble there.  I've heard all the fuss about Tweeting and wondered what it was besides Ashton Kuchter's ego trip to see how many followers he could get. I discounted Twitter because what in the world would Ashton Kuchter have to say that would interest me? Absolutely nothing, that's what. So I'm bouncing along everyday, thinking I'm pretty cool, connected to all the latest social media like Facebook, Blogger, e-mails and what not.  Hey, reality bytes again!  Turns out I wasn't quite as cool as I thought I was.  I guess in deep down in my very core I know I will always be that kid who was chosen last when my gym class picked out team members.  BTW, wasn't that the WORST thing in high school besides getting nekkid in the showers?  More on that EXPERIENCE in a future blog but as I was saying...... Here I think I'm about the coolest 71 year old "techie" around these parts in Retirement Village, Delaware
