My weekend pride plate is full!
Its Gay Pride Weekend in Seattle!!! Lots going on this weekend for me!! So start your engines! Tonight we start of the weekend with a BBQ which should be a blast! Get to see old friends and just party and chillax! Its going to be a mix of old co workers and friends so it should be lots of fun. Tomorrow was suppose to be a day to relax and then this came up --The Capitol Hill Pride Festival and its the REAL PRIDE if you ask me and I am super duper fricken excited!!!! Since doing many many prides as a young lad in Seattle--my first pride was 1986 thank you....times have sure changed and we all know it .....those of us that have been around many prides know what I am taking about...as for Seattle it used to be in what was the Gay Ghetto- at least that's what we called the area known as Capitol Hill......Well a few years ago the venue changed and since it had outgrew Capitol Hill for the parade and festival at Volunteer Park they moved the parade downtown and festival to Seattle Center....This was so more people could celebrate and it would be more of a family event and all that-- more mainstream you know. Well that didnt and doesn't sit well with all in the gay community as some think it has changed for the worst and we lost OUR celebration....Which I can understand as we all know as we have changed and grew and our gay communities, identities and just the whole culture is changing and evolving with the world nowadays. Anyhow... I like many really miss the old days and this festival is going to fill that void of what is USED to be like at a pride--- Its going to be so fun.... Ongina and Shannel will be performing-- doggie drag show----and lots of hot boys...and its on the hill!! perfect!!! Most of the straights will be at Sundays events which is fine....
So Sunday we will still be doing the parade still...but we will skip the festival at the Seattle Center... The girls are having a big ol gay BBQ blast at the house on Sunday night and that should be a perfect finale to a big ol gay weekend.....Phew...I am going to need my energy! So happy pride to all! Will catch you on the other side of this rainbow of a weekend!! xoxoxox

and my Weekend Update
Happy Gay Pride...Its pride week here in Seattle! Whoo hoo! Now this is what I am talking about......HOLY SMOKES!!! this man is too hot for words....pure hotness and sex! Hubba Hubba Hubba! I wanted to post his.....uhem....But I will send it to you uppon request if you want that...
So its already been a busy week and so my post might be a little scarce but I will try ( yes Arnie....I will try to do better) Had a nice weekend as we dog sat our gal pals two cute Havensese dogs-- Miso and Juku and so we had a real dog house with 5 critters running around all weekend......that was super fun...So we pretty much stayed in and did stuff around the house and yard most of the weekend Watched some good movies as we had free HBO and Showtime over the weekend which was perfect timing! I did go out and get True Blood season one which was released last week and loved it!!! We got through 6 of the 12 episodes and it was really good and I am a major fan....It reminds me of an adult Twlight....I loved it....
We did happen to go out on Saturday night for a bon voyage for my nephew Dustin who will be leaving for boot camp today in Virginia...he joined the Coast Guard..... It was a fun night as we got to see lots of family and friends-- it was sad too as it hard to say goodbye to our boy but we know it will be great for him. He is going to be 21 in August...gosh where has the time gone? I know my sister is going to be a basket case today as that is her darling boy.....I will call her tonite to check in that's for sure.......

Love the summertime...Lots of mag covers of hot boys and men in our new stands....thought I would share a few that caught my attention last night while at the grocery store. I didn't use the express lane as I picked the longest line with the lady who had her cart piled high with shit and a runny nosed kid in the front seat...she also paid with food stamps....BONUS time! It was perfect as I was able to thumb through them and check out all the pretty pics....he he he....Ryan Reynolds on the top with his hard bod and cute as ever Chance Crawford below.

Can u believe this? No complaints from me.....And please no comments from the peanut gallery of rain lovers......
Today We have a few random showers around western Washington early today but keep in mind most areas across western Washington from the Canadian border to Oregon will stay dry. However, there is still a chance we could see some wet spots later today. The best chance for some showers later today will be at the coast and over the central Puget Sound region in the Puget Sound Convergence Zone.
Dry Stretch Record If the showers miss Sea-Tac then we will tie the record for the most consecutive dry days for the months of May and June. Tuesday was the 28th straight dry day at Sea-Tac. We are now 2nd on the list for May and June dry spells. The longest dry stretch in May and June is 29 days and if we stay dry today that will be day 29. The longest stretch of dry weather at Sea-Tac for any period is 51 days. This occurred in July and August of 1951.
Extended If the convergence zone sets up today it may linger into Thursday morning then a weak area of high pressure will be with us for a mainly dry afternoon with more sunshine. With a little bit of luck this drier weather could last into Friday. A trough of low pressure will move over the region for the weekend bringing an even better chance for some rain showers.

Took this pic on Sat night...like my flower pot? I do notice I need to work on my summer tan...I think this is the lightest I have been in any summer! I am happy to give my skin some rest from the harmful effects of the sun.....But man I am "Shark Bait".....that's what we used to call the fair skinned folks back in Hawaii... Maybe I need to go get a spray tan at least....Isn't the pot coming along nice? I started it with all little starts in April.... and with this nice weather it is just going nutso! How gay is this with me and my flowers? I know very!! he he he -- One below is me chilling after a long day in the yard and a few strong cocktails!

Hubby reminded me that today is National Doughnut Day and so brought me a doughnut from Top Pot doughnuts this morning...Yum!
National Donut Day is on the first Friday of June each year. The holiday celebrates the doughnut (a.k.a "donut") — an edible, ring-shaped piece of dough which is deep-fried and sweetened. Many American doughnut stores offer free doughnuts on National Doughnut Day. In 2009, both independent doughnut shops and large national franchises offered free doughnuts in the United States.
National Doughnut Day started in 1938 as a fund raiser for the Chicago Salvation Army. Their goal was to help the needy during the Great Depression, and to honor the Salvation Army "Lassies" of World War I, who served doughnuts to soldiers behind the front lines in France.
Because Weekends Were Made for FUN!
We have been enjoying a sunny few weeks in Seattle---Yes WEEKS! I know shut up!! The last few days it even hovered around 90 degrees!! Hot! And they say we can maybe expect a sunny weekend in the 70's... Nice!
So here is my fave look to sport when the weather is fine and dandy....I love to put on a cute tank, some shorts....my faves are a few I picked up at Old Navy that are a bit longer then this fellas-- but I do wear short trunk when I hit the beach or lake...No surf trunks for me-- Unless I go to some breader function.... and of course a fave pair of slippahs! (what I believe you all call flip flops). My hubby and I own about 15 pairs each...yes each....LOL.....It reminds me of Hawaii when I get to run around town like this! So comfortable!
I do hope you all have a great weekend! We have no plans really....Maybe some yard work...go see mother....Have a few cocktails....Go to the farmers market....BBQ....Just chill! So lookout weekend cause here I cum! he he he.....

Glaceau Vitamin Water Rules!
So part of me getting fit and all that nonsense to shed some weight was to give up/cut back all the sodas and switch to water. So I was drinking my Propel and fruit juices as I HATE plain water-- I have to be as thirsty as a camel to enjoy water and it has to be ice cold and something like Dasani brand (Sorry no cheapo brands for me as I think they taste like chlorine) Then mother told me about Vitamin Water.......WOW! I love it! They are yummy and I like alot of the flavors! Its been my savior to stop the Cokes and Pepsi's
Now this is something Mr David Dust brought to my attention today.... I still think the Twilight Boys are taking over the world as per my post yesterday but I had to post this pic of Taylor Lautner.....Looks like he likes these vitamins waters too! His bottle looks yummy! I want to take a sip off his big bottle! Told you I love the stuff! I just cant get enough! he he he

Here is a link to hundreds of parades, marches and festivals that will take place in the coming months.
FULL LIST >>>HERE
Its about time-I had a feeling he would say something since he has all the gays and supporters in an uproar over his silence over the whole gay right issues lately.......Haven't we always HAD gay pride month? I guess it is nice that he is recognizing it....But we all know why....You don't fool us Mr Obama...
US President Obama issued a LGBT Pride Month proclamation to on June 1, 2009. The Proclamation comes on the 40th anniversary of Stonewall:"Forty years ago, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City resisted police harassment that had become all too common for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community. Out of this resistance, the LGBT rights movement in America was born. During LGBT Pride Month, we commemorate the events of June 1969 and commit to achieving equal justice under law for LGBT Americans."Here is the complete proclamation (PDF).
