and mystery Armani underwear....
Saturday morning was time to clean the house and get the yard work done and prepare for the dinner soiree we were having that evening. So we were up at the crack of dawn cleaning and preparing the house. I got out in the yard and got the lawn mowed and then the lanai area ready and such. We told everyone to come over at around six so we originally had the day to prepare but at the last moment my sister called on Thursday night and asked if we could make a birthday lunch for my nephew Cody at two in the afternoon! So we had to bust a move as we could not cancel the dinner-/so our schedule was quite tight. It was really nice though to see my family and we had a good time at Cody's b day bash and he is one handsome devil--- Takes after his uncle I believe--he he he--- He did turn 17......We don't get to see him or the rest of them kids much now that they are teens and they hang out with friends and such..... Not the "Uncles" anymore much. I cant believe how fast my nephews and nieces are all growing up as one by one they are graduating high school and heading off to college. I had several vodka gimlets at lunch so was feeling no pain by the time we left to go home to get ready for our guest. We got home at 550 and since we expected guest to start arriving at 600 we were running around the house like 2 chickens without our heads ---putting the food out and lighting candles and all that---The guest started arriving at 630 so all were actually ok. Since we needed a theme for the night we all decided after a few drinks that we were celebrating the start of FALL and the FALL of Wall Street. LOL- we are terrible eh? It was a lovely dinner party and all the food was delish and company divine as usual. We drank ALOT MORE than usual..Maybe it was do to all that FALL talk....
Sunday am-----Eye chihuahua! My head! Maybe it was due to those tequila shots--or the Vodka Gimlets or the whiskey shots? Whatever the case I was not feeling so hot yesterday so I drank a lot of coffee to get me going......got to cleaning and picking up the house.....boy waht a mess...nto too bad but found all kids of stuff earrings, lip gloss and threw out all the unclaimed underwear left all over the house....must of been a good party eh? Then mustered up enough energy to give the THREE kids a bath. With the house clean and the kidos clean and a nice 70 degree day at hand ---I sat out in the sun for a bit by 11am and then took a nice long nap and just relaxed all day and evening.....Nice weekend but much to short.....I think I still taste the tequila and its Monday........and what the .......noticed this isn't my pair of Aramani underwear I have on today? what the heck is going on???

So just about every Tom, Dick and Hairy is off to Sand Fran to the Folsom Street Fair ---that is except for me it seems....oh phooey!!! So the fair is celebrating 25 years and I am totally bummed that I don't get to go. But I thought IF I was able to go this year that this would be one of my pictures to post as one of the highlights and pictures of me at Folsom Street Fair 2008.....
Gayken is really Gay....
The clue phone was ringing and most of us picked it up long ago. Also the Gaydar went berserk and still most of the Clayittes ( is that what they call themselves?) was so harsh to criticize everyone that called him out and now they all can eat crow among other things.....That is the part I like about this whole come out the best! Now Gayken- it sure is about time sister!

Come on back to Seattle we will take good care of your needs...as no matter what we think you are AMAZING!

A good one!
You ever see a lad and its brings back a very fond memory of a boy you had a very special relationship with when you were young? I was kinda fortunate as I didn't have a hard time growing up much as I wasn't picked on for being a sissy and such. I hear all the time on boys who had a horrendous time in high school growing up gay -- for me it was sometimes mentioned but mostly I believed it was because I had so many "Barbie" girlfriends and they were jealous and wondered how this boy got all this fine tail. Thank god for the Barbies though, as they attracted the prime boys and we all know how horny those boys can be! I was a good alternative when they didn't get star cheerleader to give them a blow job! HA! All was ok in high school until I came out at 18 right after graduation--it was not my decision but due to a girlfriend that blabbered about my private conversation we had when I stupidly confided in her on how I thought I may like boys more than girls....stupid drunk me....My life changed so fast with this forced outing after her gossip spread through our community/town like wildfire. So the whole town went crazy with rumors ....did you HEAR? HE IS GAY!! OMG!!! I then lost my posse of friends and friendships very fast- and especially the guys.... So I packed up and ran off to the big city "Seattle" and left all my burb Buddy's behind and started fresh--if you can call "Fresh" submerging myself into the gay ghetto/culture in 1985 at the Monastery discotheque- But believe it or not at 18 and a 1/2 I didn't know about gay people and was surprised to find them when I went on my own... I simply could not believe that there were THAT many people like me....gay people?.....but this is a whole other story and post....
So yes I had my fair share of guys and a few girls that I had relationships with back in my HS days and I hear ( I have 2 sisters back in the old stomping grounds) about some of them every now and then. Most of them got married and nowadays they are mostly divorced or on a second or third marriage with children and grandchildren. But we wont go into the details on who and what happened back in those days But this pic did bring about a memory about one boy in particular that held my heart for about a year before I became a sorta male tramp in high school..Boy we sure shared a lot of sessions.... if you know what I mean.....
I was the new 9th grader- I had just moved to the state from Hawaii and was starting high school in a new town and he was the neighbor boy in the 7 grade from the nice Christian family down the way. He looked much older than me for being 2 years younger as he was built due to he being very athletic and into every sport--we would ride our bikes to his soccer and baseball practices and go play in the woods alot.....and he LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE THIS BOY ABOVE!! He really was my first for real kisses with a boy and we pretty much taught each other how to kiss-Im sure I was his first as well..... it was hot and heavy frenching and cuddling and all that--among other things. Our hot and heavy encounters lasted for about a year until his mother found a letter between us and we were forever then shamed and our friendship and relationship came to a screaming halt. I was sad but more ashamed as I was very close to his whole family as I joined them in church and Sunday school for that year and was part of the family and I felt I had let him, god and his family down- They were a strong Christian family with good faith and we had made a big mistake. At the same time during this year long boy affair I also saw a girl for a few months that 9th grade year but never did anything more than peek her cheek.
A few years later he became a football star when he entered high school and ended up having a torrid romance with a girl-- now get this---the EXACT girl I was dating in the 9th grade! They ended up going out for many years and all through high school---He was the star linebacker and she was the head cheerleader---- it was perfect for them and images. He and I ended up talking in the halls of school every now and then but never became friends or close again and pretty much avoided each other.......oh the shame......But our secret was always that........ a secret that was safe and guarded........ well that is until I just posted it on this blog........ but I don't think any of these folks read blogs or mine in particular so I think I am ok.......at least I hope so......I consider him to be my first true love......He was my star athlete boyfriend and all I can think of when I look at this model above is how much I loved it when he paraded around in our rooms or at the fort we built in the woodsor isn his garage (winter months fort).... in his jock strap and tube socks! What fine memories INDEED!

Forget the DVRs, on-demand TV, YouTube, or firing up your WiFi connection. All across America, people were parked in front of their TV sets late Saturday night. Included me! The skit with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler was top notch and started off the show with a bang and a promise for a show to remember with so many viewers tuned in....sadly it quickly turned sour with Micheal Phelps-- Poor guy wasn't very good and the skits were lackluster-I was so disappointed in the humdrum skits ( and I guess I wasnt the only one disappointed due to the many reviews I checked out over the weekend) Except for a few highlights that made me giggle in the Weekly News Update with Amy Poehler and Seth Meyer- and Bobby Moynihan's pepper guy-- the show was a real disappointment indeed. Tina and Amy should of just did the whole show- One long skit would of been better then what was delivered.

We will always remember this day in our lives. In 7 years our nation has really changed hasnt it?
Some News Blips I have been reading this am-
Barack Obama and John McCain will put their presidential ambitions on hold today to make an unprecedented joint appearance at a commemoration marking the seventh anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil.
With no speeches and little fanfare, the two candidates will walk together down a ramp into the pit where the World Trade Center towers once loomed over lower Manhattan and lay a wreath at Ground Zero for the Sept. 11 attacks.
In the seven years since the terrorist strike that killed almost 3,000 people in New York, at the Pentagon and in Pennsylvania, Sept. 11 has been a tool and a trap for U.S. politicians. Yet the day itself has remained sacred.
The nation's first major Sept. 11 memorial is being unveiled today at the Pentagon to mark the seventh anniversary of the terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in Virginia, New York and Pennsylvania.
The two-acre site features 184 steel benches, one for each of the people who died when a plane crashed into the Pentagon.
After today's dedication for family members, the memorial will be open to the public.

Happy hump day! So we are at our 1/2 way point for the week. I hope your week is going well. I have been busy with everyday stuff and all in all things are going quite well. We are enjoying some nice weather in the Pacific Northwest-nice cool evenings and 70 plus degree days with sunshine-its perfect end of summer weather and it keeps your mood happy. I am gearing up to do my first of many end of summer yard clean ups which consist of cutting back some of the plants and perennials. It will be fallish in a few weeks which will then be an overflow of leaves. Spring and fall is alot of work in the yard with all the leaves and cutting back of stuff but I love it! I noticed the Japanese maples are slowly turning and close to changing for the show they give us each fall. They do a explosion of fall color which is beautiful! We didn't have that back home in Hawaii or California so its a treat for us to see all the orange and red hues. I may go and get some mums for fall color to add to the pots on the patio this weekend. The yard and gardens are looking good due to the mild summer we have enjoyed as most of the flowers and fauna look more like they would in July so its a nice year to enjoy all the plants. I even have oriental lilly's that are still blooming! Our tomato's and peppers are pumping out a bunch of fruit right now so we have been using it to cook, add to salads and make some fresh salsa. We took some over to a get together this last weekend and it was a big hit! The hubby does a fantastic job on making some fresh spicy salsa! He is my Rachel Ray/Barefoot Contessa rolled into a husband....He is also much more handsome then they are too! Hes a keeper.
So tomorrow is my follow up appointment with a orthopedic foot doctor to see how my ankle/foot injury is doing. It seems to be doing well as I can now walk and not hobble around so I am back in the world of the walking which is nice- no pain anymore so I am hoping this is a good sign. Will see how it really is doing after they do an x ray on it is my guess. I am crossing my toes, fingers and eyes that all is well with it. It was a first for me in all my life to have a injury that affected my mobility. I will forever be careful from now on- I guess I am not the super hero I used to be.
Hubby and I are a little antsy these days and a bit depressed as we usually go on a trip this time of year but with my new job I have no vacation allotment yet so we are stuck with no fall getaway this year. Last year we were in Hawaii at this time and I am so homesick right now! God we need a beach!!!!! Oh well, at least staying home will save us some $ and with winter bills around the corner I will be happy we didn't splurge on a fall trip this year, but its still hard to not be going anywheres on a getaway this fall. We will just have to make up for it next year in our travels! We plan to do a Mexico Sea of Cortez cruise in January or February and then London next fall to connect with friends in the UK...With the way time is moving these days we will be leaving for London before we know it even if its a year away! I cant believe its Sept 10th already- where has the year gone?

A Guilty Pleasure

My thoughts and prayers are with all who may be impacted by Hurricane Gustav today. This is all so scary for those that are in its path and I hope its goes as best as it can after this sucker rumbles it way thorough our country today.
