    I changed my profile pic a couple of days ago, after wrestlervic "shamed" me about my old pic, wearing a party wig (not really, he was just having fun).

    So I decided to change it anyway, and posted this current one taken in Vermont during our holiday trip last month. It doesn't even show my face or my partner's, just a kissing pic in the snow.

    Well I've already had 8 favorable comments sent to me! I've NEVER had that kinda response before! Thanks guys, I think I answered all of you back, but if I missed anyone my apologies, because I do appreciate it.

    I've been a Red Vespa scooter, a pic on an iPhone, a party guy, a guy with a brimmed hat, and maybe something else, I forget, but I've never before gotten this kind of positive feedback so quickly. I guess kissing is in fashion. LOL!

    Thanks! I suppose that must be it. Yet we all kiss our man, but I guess not the kind of pic a lot of guys put up here.

    wrestlervic caught me off guard with a funny but valid dig about my other pic. So I scrambled to find any recent pic I had on hand as a replacement, and saw the potential in tight-cropping this one. Strange how unplanned things work out.

    People made horrible comments on my picture of me and my boyfriend and all of them were about my boyfriend. Shit on me all you want but my boyfriend is fucking flawless unlike these dumbass bitches so I refuse to allow that sort of disrespect towards him.

    What? You posted a pic of your man and I missed it!

    I'm really really sorry that happened. Who you choose as your love is not to be sneered at. Love is to celebrated.
    I wish I'd seen that topic it was on because I'd have stood up for you and him.

    Oh, I don't know. How could the Chairman of the Condo Hurricane Committee and the President of the Condo Association - both "A+ List Gay Movers and Shakers" ever be considered white trash?


    Don't end up like SB, jmusmc85.

    I don't think "noblesse obligué" is quite the term that you're looking for.

    Perhaps graciousness?

    To Intensity,

    "Whoever claims to be noble must conduct himself nobly.
    (Figuratively) One must act in a fashion that conforms to one's position, and with the reputation that one has earned."

    Gracious winner works, too.

    I don't recall that pic. I don't believe I made a comment.

    Well, that's not acceptable to have trashed your BF. Will you post a pic of him again?

    My husband is 15 years older than me. He turns 79 in July, while I'll be 64. He's shown in my RJ profile pic. He's more energetic than I am. I would be unlikely to slam your BF for being 54.

    So do we get to see your guy again? I promise I won't trash him.

    You enjoy mentioning my name here, don't you? Let me do it again for you.

    "Oh my god, look how wonderful life is! I made a snide comment about Vic and his lava lamp (the part you left out) and then he returned with an equally snide comment about my wig photo. Now, unexpectedly, because of wrestlervic's provoking, I am getting tons of comments on my new photo! Thank god I made a snide comment toward wrestlervic (the part you left out) so that, knowing one snide comment deserves another, wrestlervic inadvertently got me to change my ways."

    OK, that's very strange. You did me a favor, and I appreciated it. I tried to thank you.

    If I didn't express that well, then I apologize. You really did me a kindness.

    I just thought it was amazing that a casual comment you made (it could have been anyone) had a very positive unexpected outcome. I'm always fascinated by serendipity.

    And I didn't think your comment was snide, or mine to you, I never used that word. I thought, and said to you, that it was funny & clever. I liked it!

    So please, chill. You did me a genuine favor. I wasn't being sarcastic, but genuine. I'm sorry if I wasn't good at conveying that message. Can we be friends?

    LOLOLOL!

    I never thought of that song! Gawd, I was 18 or 19 when that came out. And now I'm 64 myself! YIKES!

    Actually I've got a few more months to go, but I have my RJ profile age set to January 1st, New Years Day, for security reasons. So I have 2 birthdays, just like Queen Elizabeth II, who has an actual birthday and an official birthday. I figure what's good enough for the Queen of England is good enough for the queen of Wilton Manors. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Anyway, thanks. It's fun to think of that Beatles song, that I first heard as a teen, and now I'm turning 64 myself. I can't be! icon_confused.gif

    Thanks! But I was nudged by a very nice guy, who made me see that I needed a change. It's easy to make good decisions, when you get good advice.

    Oh, and I AM having fun! So yeah, times flies.

    But still, I wish I could stop the calendar. Time flies by too fast. I've never been happier, I want to be with C**** forever. But that cannot be, and I know the reality of the calendar that we're up against.

    Still, so is everyone else, we're no different. And I'm blessed with a man all the odds said I never should have had. I can't complain.

    Life's been remarkably generous to me, I sometimes marvel at my good fortune. Years ago I would say to others: "Life wants to be good to you, if only you know how to let it". It appears I did know.

    It wasn't a topic. I had a couple of photos in my previous profile and some people commented on the photos. I didn't accept any of the comments.
    Thanks though, I appreciate your support.
