When I glanced at this topic from the main page I thought it said "The white pickled fence?"
I did just buy a bunch of mason jars, and I have more red okra than I can shake a stick at, so it was on my mind. What can I say?
I went with a friend of mine last night to her coworker's house where he (the coworker) and his husband were hosting a casino night. It was my friend (the only woman there) and myself and then a bunch of gay guys, all coupled. The house was total Texas quaint, reminded me of an ex-boyfriend's grandparents' house, complete with photos of the happy couple strewn variously around, inflatable polar bears with string lights in the front yard, etc. All the other guys there were coupled and knew the hosts because they all play in a gay men's bowling league on Wednesday nights.
We ate Thanksgiving leftovers and played poker & craps all night and had a great time.
So yeah, it's really very possible. It was almost eerie to me; it's certainly not exactly what I'm looking for, the picket fences. I like not having an HOA. But having a great partner, nice house, still doing a lot of spontaneous stuff without being excessively tethered down, sign me up, sounds great.
