My Arch-Nemesis

Since the beginning of time there have been arch-nemesises. Cleopatra had Octavian. Superman fought Lex Luthor. Debbie Gibson and Tiffany battled for the Pop Princess throne. I, however, had survived all these decades peacefully until my nemesis moved in, not next door but under my deck. Meet the epitome of evil, at least in my…

Coronavirus Project #6

          The two people who have had the most influence on my personal hair stylings over the years are Shaun Cassidy, with his male version of the Farrah Fawcett flip, and Madonna who changed hair styles and colors more often than I changed my underwear…that may explain why I was single…

Coronavirus Projects #2 – #5

Who knew that when I started my first Coronavirus post that it would cause an avalanche of pushed aside household projects to move to the forefront of my mind (nothing was going on up there anyways) and I would have a compulsion to complete them all. I have never been much of a handy man…

Corona Project #1

What does one do when stranded inside for days and weeks and months on end? I never thought that would be a question I would have to ask myself. Then the Coronavirus hit. Part of me is bummed but part of me is enjoying not having a schedule. I still have to work but my…

Volunteering

What’s my resolution for 2020? I don’t have one. In my gay opinion we shouldn’t put that sort of pressure on ourselves to improve, instead we should be a little more excepting of who we are. Why mess with perfection, I always say. So this year I’m feeling grateful for the things I have and…

Halloween

In my gay opinion, Halloween is for kids. This year I was thinking back to my childhood and only remember my last Halloween trick or treating. Picture it, Sicily 1942 (sorry, I’ve been watching too much The Golden Girls), more like Meriden, 1984. For those unfamiliar with world-renowned Meriden, back then it was a small…

Millie Jackson

My September started out with a bang. Normally my partner and I aren’t Labor Day travelers, who wants to deal with crowds and traffic. However this year we decided to road trip it through Connecticut, New York, and Pennsylvania in order to get to Bethesda, Maryland. Why Bethesda? Two words, Millie Jackson. Back in 2012…

My First…And Maybe Last Massage

In a previous post, I mentioned that at the end of June I had a fall while doing yard work that caused me so much pain that I kept going to doctors and physical therapy for two months trying to figure out what was wrong. I was diagnosed with a pulled muscle, pinched nerve, whiplash…
