I think I started down dimentia road yesterday. I got up and got dressed as usual. Later, when I went to the bathroom, I almost wet myself when I couldn’t find the front door to my boxers. It was only with quick thinking that I was able to avert disaster by pulling the boxers down … More What Next?
A couple of weeks ago, I met a man named Demarcus working in our building and I mentioned I was taking a comedy class. He suggested I take a look at a comedian who performed as Black Ron. I went searching for Black Ron and I was completely unsuccessful. A couple of days ago, I … More Lace Front Twists
In one of my retail gigs I sold men’s shoes. If you’ve opened a lot of boxes of shoes which I have, nothing looks nicer than opening a box and seeing shoes that have been packed well. It may sound a little strange but I’m compulsively tidy. If you are familiar with the cultural reference, … More Virgin Shoes
Around 15 years ago, we moved to a condo as our home. It involved downsizing but it met all of our requirements. It is close to parks and within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and entertainment. We are on a fairly high floor which gives us beautiful views. The halls are wide enough for any … More New Rule
I have a really good friend who is a raging heterosexual. I have never really understood his choice because he is a nice-looking man with a killer personality and he could have any man he wanted.

Recently a woman in line ahead of me at the grocery sidled up beside me. She discretely told me my fly was open and I instinctively thanked her. This is such a common issue for me I feel no need for discretion. The woman appeared older than me and, although I don’t know her, I … More Flying Under the Radar
In my last retail job one characteristic that distinguished me from all other male employees in the store was that I wore a bow tie every day. One of the guys I worked with whom I’ll call Joe was 6’5”, in his 40s and had a sense of humor as irreverent as mine. When I … More A Tie That Binds
Many years ago, a man I worked with told me he enjoyed working with me and he had met my partner (later husband) Ed and thought he was a really nice man. However, he had to admit that as hard as he tried, he couldn’t understand the gay lifestyle. I thought about it a few … More Gay Lifestyle?
When Ed and I moved to Dallas, it was an exciting time because for the first time, we were able to meet other gay men and women. However, we were uncomfortable at first because old habits die hard. Coming from a military environment and having been closeted our entire lives, the new freedom was an … More Agog
Apparently I have skills at performing match making functions for straight people. I even have hookup skills for young straight people but those are a lot easier. These are more about sex and less about love. Young people, in my opinion, think about sex in a much healthier way than the world I grew up in. … More Hunting for Cougars
