    Saturday (yesterday) I thought I'd get to sleep in, my weekend relief from M-F 5:30 mornings. But NOOOO. Hubby hauled me out of bed at 8 AM and dragged me over to Rosie's bar & grill for a before-opening yard sale, to raise money for their SMART Ride bicycle team. And this guy is 77 years old -- what is WRONG with him??? icon_rolleyes.gif

    The bar was open early, so my revenge was drinking bloody Mary's until around 1 PM, and talking with one of the gay owners, a really nice guy (actually they both are, and all their staff, so come to Rosie's if you're in Wilton Manors). Well we got lots of loot, about 10 items, including a home-made penis cake my partner thought would make a good gag gift for a birthday party later that night.

    We swung by our place to drop-off this stuff, mainly to get the penis cake out of the hot car, and off we go again without pause. This time it was the New Moon lesbian bar, right across the street from Rosie's. A couple hundred lesbians were just returning from the annual Iron Ladies golf tournament, also having been held all that morning, for an outdoor lunch under a big white pavilion set up in their parking lot. The owner dressed herself as Katherine Hepburn from the movie On Golden Pond, and spoke with a frail, trembling voice, very funny.

    My partner & I have been involved with the tournament before, overseeing one of the holes, where a hole-in-one earned you a new car. But that would have been a bit much for me this year, and we wanted to contribute to the SMART Ride yard sale to help Rosie's.

    So my partner dropped me off, while he drove 15 miles to the International Fishing Hall of Fame (I always call it the Swishing Hall of Fame), for a meeting with leaders of the Florida state gay democratic party. In the meantime I'm hobnobbing with all these lesbians, about the only man there. Interesting experience, but I'm welcome, a special guest because of our past contributions to Iron Ladies, being allowed to partake of their free food, and yet more drink. icon_wink.gif

    Since we couldn't attend their golf tournament this year I bid very heavily on silent auction items, mostly golf stuff they had despite my not playing the game. I got aced at the last minute by a few determined bidders (you can only cover so many items), but still won their nicest Calloway cart bag out of about 8 they had, and a golf umbrella, so I felt I redeemed us in their eyes. Hubby made a brief appearance toward the end.

    Now I guess I'm gonna hafta buy a set of golf clubs to put in this lovely bag, standing next to me right now, and learn the frigging game. Help, rigsby -- are you listening?

    Back home we had an hour to shower and dress before phase 3, the 60th birthday party of a friend. About 20 gay guys, all couples, we partied till nearly 11 (well, we're all about that same age, can't go ALL night), and finally dragged our asses home. A 16-hour day of non-stop activity, but pretty typical for us.

    Now today we have a Dolphin Democrats gala (the Florida gay political group), starting with a VIP reception that includes Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. If any of the photos are usable (and with me they usually aren't) I'll post them here.

    OH FUCK! My partner just woke up, and tells me we also have to attend a brunch at Lips in 2 hours, which is a drag club, where you sit through an entire show. On Sundays the drag queens do a Gospel show. Spare me! And I've seen it before, really more for the tourists, most of the audience straight. icon_razz.gif

    And still have to make it over to the Dolphin Democrats at 3 PM, where we're supposed to help arrange things, before the reception begins. I HATE never having a blow-it-off weekend, I just get so goddam tired, especially with this cancer treatment. icon_mad.gif

    Wow...that sounds like a lotta fun. As for me, I would have spent the afternoon sleeping off the Bloody Marys...haha.

    I used to play, but don't have the time. I've heard there is a GLBT golf league here. I think they play Wednesday and on the weekend. If you've never played, its an addictive game and great way to socialize.

    Leaving our overnight stay, me on the left with the orange helmet:

    When you yourself pedal a bike 165 mies down to Key West, at my age, maybe we'll talk. This pic has been posted here before. Please note my handicapped parking permit on my handlebars. Put there to motivate others to attempt this ride. If I can do it, anyone can. And this year I'm battling cancer.

    And what exactly have YOU done for HIV/AIDS causes? It seems to me that it's YOU who's all talk. Where are YOUR pics of what you have done?

    RJ guys here have met me in person, and know what I do. But not you, I think?

    You are nothing but a sad pathetic ALCOHOLIC seeking pity from anybody who will lend you an ear. Love your pathetic comeback as Presentmind is probably your Ghost account! LOL. Presentmind couldn't answer so YOU had to. AGAIN---why are you out getting hammered and not training for the bike ride? And regarding the AIDs causes------I've been out a hell of a lot longer than you and was involved with many an AIDS fundraiser in my day and I chose not to brag about it like you do to boost my self image--WHY DO YOU NEED THAT BOOST? You were hiding in the closet all those years while I was out helping in the early days of the AIDS crisis. You are pathetic and sad. GO FUCK OFF ASSHOLE!

    thank you for being your truly wonderful self---

    am reminded of a recent desription given of TropicalMark--

    somebody said
    Tropicalmark is an idiot, not a bully. Bully implies he has some sort of power/influence over people, he is more like the shit fly (the one that flies around on shit.) Its kind of disgusting, overall harmless. I suggest you ignore, life becomes better. This man is clearly bitter about life and tries to make it up by having a great "e-life" on RJ. One of the most pathetic excuses for a man on here, and I am ashamed to share some of the political beliefs with him


    ------------------------------------------------------

    name calling shit fly---that pretty much describes TropicaMarkicon_lol.gif

    and for what it is worth-- I respect Art Deco on this board a HELL of a lot more than I do TropicalMark---

    No one will get this, except some people who like Rap music.

    But the word "loot" reminded me of an old song called "da loot"... "gimme da loot! gimme da loot!"

    Good song.

    Sorry, carry on.

    Apple hasn't released its time machine yet. You may have to wait for a while to see those pictures.
