And the Phoenix will rise from the ashes…… Stay Tuned…..

I Promise


So much time, so many changes, so much laughter, tears, emergencies.

So much to tell……

Almost 5 years????? Where DO I begin?

At this point I am not even sure if I have any readers left and to be honest I would be shocked if I did. I guess that I have a lot of catching up to do do, but I think that my first few posts will be more of a recap of these past 4 1/2 years more for me than for anyone else.

So much has happened during my absence, from mundane everyday changes to some that major events that have altered my life forever.

As you know the main purpose of this blog was to chart my coming out process (which is still a work in progress) and as a vent for the emotional roller coaster that I have been on along the way.

For this post though I am only dipping my feet in to test the waters, but I promise (to myself at least), that I will be splashing around in the waters once again.

In the meantime, if there is anyone out there, please be patient….


What are you when you steal a stolen meme???

September 23, 2008

Well, I’m back, sort of…  I know that I have lost a LOT of readers since I went on my hiatus, hopefully though the will trickle back. If not, maybe I could build a new base.


Below is a meme that I stole from Dirk (TDCTDI) who as it turns out “stole” it from someone else! So, although I may NOT be a total “Gentleman” (I got 16 out of 25), at least I’m not a total rube….

The “Twenty-Five Things a Gentleman Should Know How to Do” Meme.

  • Change a flat tire – (Call AAA)
  • Tie a bow tie
  • Carve a turkey – (You’re kidding, right?)
  • Open a bottle of champagne – (Oh, waiter??)
  • Change the oil in a car – (Can you say Jiffy Lube?)
  • If asked, you know the name of a good barber – (and NO his name is NOT Flowbee!)
  • Have a tailor who knows your measurements
  • Tie a bowline, clove hitch, and a square knot – (Learned at Scout Camp as well as a few “other” things…)
  • Chop wood – (See Above)
  • Shoot a rifle
  • Make a dry martini
  • Keep a checkbook balanced – (It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to add and subtract!)
  • BBQ – (A form of COOKING, HELLO!!!)
  • Lay a fire – (Scout Camp strikes again!)
  • Change a fuse – (Pull it out, push it in… Sound familiar?)
  • Polish shoes – (Have you EVER seen a gay man with scuffed shoes??)
  • The ability to read stock quotes in the business section
  • Keep score at a baseball game – (Hint: look at the scoreboard)
  • Jump-start a car – (Not by choice, sadly)
  • Know how to throw a punch
  • Own a tuxedo
  • Know how to judge a new wine
  • Do your own taxes at least once in your life – (Actually every year since 1974!)
  • Know how how to play poker – (Scout camp again and the first game was strip poker!)
  • Carry a handkerchief

Scattergories of a Different sort…

Can you answer these...

No Torn, don’t get your hopes up this isn’t about poop, LOL! Maybe another time…

Anyway, I got this off another list and thought it was interesting. Let’s see how unique your answers are. Leave you answers in the comments section.

Here is how it works:

It’s harder than it looks! Use the first letter of your first name to answer each of the following. They have to be real places, names, things – nothing made up. You cannot use your own name for the boy/girl names. Also, if you name starts with a “K” your answers have to be different than mine.

1. What is your name? Kevin
2. A vehicle: Kia Sorento
3. A city: Kansas City, KA
4. A boy’s name: Kenneth
5. A girl’s name: Kathryn

Raising the flag…

Raising the flag...

OK, so my last few posts have been totally off base from my intended reasons for this blog. But, you know sometimes life isn’t always about me and my issues. Sometimes you have to step outside your comfort zone (not that those who are out and proud don’t do this every day of their lives), and let others know that there are other aspects of your life that are equally compelling. Now that some of my other “issues” are out there, I feel it’s time for me to be getting back to my own “out there” issues.

Friday the 13th Trivia – New & Redux

June 13, 2008

Watch out for ladders...

Let’s all welcome:

2008’s ONLY FRIDAY 13th!!!

Okay, for some reason it seems that these Friday 13th Trivia Posts are among my most popular, who could have guessed??? Anyway, since I tried to put as many trivia factoids into my previous posts, I will be duplicating some and intersperse new ones here and there.

In the meantime, enjoy the day and remember – KARMA IS A BITCH!

First, for those who are in need of some protection there are silly rituals and cures galore to protect them on Friday the 13th. A few of them are:

1.Walk around your house 13 times on Friday the 13th.

2.Hang your shoes out the window. (My guess is the smell will drive all the evil away!)

3.Sleep with a mirror under your pillow for the first 3 Fridays before Friday the 13th comes. You are suppose to dream of your true love on Friday the 13th then also.

4.Walk around the block with your mouth full of water. If you do not swallow it, you will be 100% safe on Friday the 13th.

And finally there’s always 13th century age-old Aristotle cure…

5. Wear and/or eat garlic!

and now onto the TRIVIA…

Is Florida the new Vatican???

June 11, 2008

Whatever happened to separation of church and state??  Is Florida now taking donations for a “Christian” anti-gay group??


As it should be...

I found this on the “Bilerico Project” today and I just have to pass this around. Hopefully, I have given full credit and won’t be asked to take this down….
