Good morning All. Coffees on.


Recommended Posts



i have friends that are cis women, transgender women and transgender men. I am closest to one transgender woman and one transgender man other than my wife of course.


Bri it dos sound like you over did it just a bit.


that’s for the compliments on the necklace.  A sales girl did a good job of convincing me.  I was trying on a number of things and she added it to the pile.  It went really well with what I was interested in and I have found other times that it looked good too.  Yes I too had a good time and came home happy, all 150 feet.  Not everything is perfect here, but I’m glad we moved here.


our daughter and one granddaughter will be here for thanksgiving.  They will be arriving about midnight tomorrow.


we are excited for them to come.  Now if we could just get our son and his wife to come.  Holidays are out for our son, he always ends up having to work.

It would be nice to have friends period, other than my wife. Yet, she doesn't support me. OH, well. Life goes on. just as we went to bed. She tells me, I don't understand but I love you.


@Bri2020 , girl you over did it. Did your hang over move south from your head?

Good Wednesday morning.  Our family got here about 12:30 last night.  An extra family member came too.  Teddy!  Our daughters Teddy bear dog.  That’s fine, it gives our dog Sweetie company.  Teddy is maybe 15 lbs Sweeties is 57 lbs. but since they are used to each other Sweetie doesn’t get all over excited and rough with him and he doesn’t run away.


looking forward to doing some baking this afternoon.  And making my stuffing.


Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Hi everyone 


You can never know when this could be come true.  We know about all the shootings in the last week or so.


Well, I honestly thought I was a goner tonight.  I’ve been having serious issues swallowing for a while now.  My ENT specialist is trying to figure it out. Usually, it’s like swallowing a sip of water and it “going down the wrong way.  Well, tonight I was eating a roll I’d made and it got stuck.  Really stuck!  I couldn’t breath, I couldn’t swallow and I couldn’t hack it up. I was getting quite concerned.  Tried taking a drink, had to spit that out.  Obviously, I got it unstuck but it took some work.


My point is live your life to the fullest.  Live how you want and need to be.  Don’t think about tomorrow, it may not come.  Love your friends and.family and don’t hold grudges.

Indeed.  I was nearly murdered in August.  I'm still recovering, as my brain injury has made me have to relearn a lot of how to work with my hands.  It hasn't exactly been a transformative experience, but I've done some thinking about my life. 


This Thanksgiving, I'm extra thankful for my family and friends.  We'll have a big feast tomorrow, but I'd be thankful even if I was homeless and hungry.  Life is about people, and our relationships are the only thing of true value.  With family and friends, life is full.  Those relationships are the only thing that we retain in the afterlife, after all possessions pass away.

Do you know how to do the Heimlich maneuver on yourself?  https://www.mayoclinic.org/first-aid/first-aid-choking/basics/art-20056637

Glad you're okay.  I have had trouble swallowing at times.  Throat just won't work.  But it has never blocked my airways.  That would be frightening.

@KathyLauren yes, I do know how, but I had no air in my lungs.  Plus my daughter is here who is a highly skilled RN.  I got it out by getting my head below my waste and bouncing my upper body.  I used to be a scuba instructor and taught first aid among other things including oxygen administration and AED use. And diving classes from basic scuba to master divers.


thank you @Ivy 


congratulations @BrandiBri  you do have a lot to be thankful for. Me, I’m getting frequent hot flashes right now.

Good afternoon everyone:coffee:


Since our son is a firefighter on duty today, we’ve moved our Thanksgiving Day Dinner to Saturday. Like @KymmieL I’m thankful for everyone here on TransPulseForums. 

Here’s how my music 🎶 and coffee ☕️ work together.

From part of my family to everyone here, happy thanksgiving.  Missing are my son, who is flying somewhere.  His wife who is taking care of their new puppy and her mother.  And our oldest granddaughter who has to work and had dinner with her boyfriends family back in Virginia 


im glad I can have so many friends to share with and be thankful for.

We had a happy Thanksgiving today, in spite of the rain.  Most of the time the weather is good this time of year, if a bit chilly.  We ended up having most of our festivities indoors, which was a bit crowded but still a good time.  I ate way too much, and probably gained 5lbs just from one meal. 


It was amusing to notice how much crazier GF's kids are compared to the rest of our family and community.  So hyper!  I help raise them and I try to have a calming influence, but there's only so much I can do.  The oldest isn't even in kindergarten and she's already dominating her peers.  🙄😆

Good morning


My coffee is black but my Friday is not.  It’s a rainy day and there is nothing I need to get today except prescriptions.  

that’s the thing when you get older, the prescriptions.  I was never one to take regular medication now I have 4 everyday, plus 3 over the counter, plus one bi-weekly and two prn.  Could be worse I suppose.  

I hope everyone had a safe and happy thanksgiving.  We did.  Last night we went to the boardwalk and saw the holiday lights.    We were a little disappointed that the skywheel wasn’t lit, they change the colors to go with a recent news event or holiday.  UVA orange and blue, Ukraine yellow and blue, CO Springs. Rainbow, etc.  it was about 50/50 for places that were open. A few large hotels were VERY busy right near the middle of the beach.


it’s been really great having our daughter and granddaughter here.  

@KymmieL I was just making a bad joke out of some old things. I don’t think I could have a bun in my oven.  They haven’t perfected that surgery yet!  And I can take a joke back.  

lots of hugs everyone

I just just got an appointment with Dr. Schechter, May 3rd, consultation for zero depth vaginoplasty. Hoping I'm not pushing the timeline too much, but the genital dysphoria is getting a bit too much to deal with.

It’s Sunday morning.  I’ve had my black coffee and a Sandy beach. No I didn’t go to the ocean this morning, we have a donut place that makes fancy donuts.  A Sandy beach is one of their creations.


Our daughter and granddaughter left this morning.  We had a very good visit.  So glad they came.


I think everyone had a nice time.  Now they have a long drive back to Virginia. They can’t go much further north and still be in Virginia.  The local Chamber of Commerce calls it the top of Virginia.  They are surrounded on three sides by West Virginia and loosely speaking mountains.  Allegheny to the west and Blue Ridge east and south.


Anyway, they went what we refer to as the back way to go home.  The hope is less traffic.  The main way involves I95 and that gets backed up on a normal day.  Today, they’ll have the parking meters out.


I hope everyone was able to have a nice thanksgiving with family and friends

Good Sunday morning. Yesterday evening my father in law passed. My wife seems OK. Still not sure if she is going back to MI or not. Don't think so, but you never know.


On a better note, the first Thanksgiving in our own home was nice. Just the 3 of us and the fur kids.


Have a great rest of the weekend.

My son lives up there near Gainesville.  I prefer to drive 29 when I go up there.  I used to visit my sister in Charlottesville when she was still living.

Wow got my first set of breast forms yesterday; all I can say is why did I wait so long to get them. I put them on and what a self esteem boost it brought tears to my eyes to see breast where I have wanted them for so many years. All the tops and bras that I have tried on fit so much better. I can’t believe how a little amount of flesh can bring so much joy and happiness to a girl, just goes to show that I’m on the right path and the future look great. I'll be posting some pics in a few days.


Kymmie, sorry for the loss of your father in-law sending best wishes and prayers to you and your family.


Hope everyone had a safe and joyous Thanksgiving.

Good afternoon 


watching football and YouTube.  I tend to multitask.  Honestly, they don’t televise any team I’m interested in watching.  Well, if I’m honest, there isn’t any team I’m all that interested in these days.


@KymmieL I’m glad you were able to have a nice thanksgiving in your new home. We did likewise.  Honestly it’s been years since we were together for thanksgiving.  Even when we lived only a mile or two apart in Virginia we were often left on our own.  We would make reservations at an Inn or Hotel.


I am sorry for your loss of your FIL.


@Ivy we are well acquainted with Gainesville and route 29.  We moved to Centreville in 1984  and to Stephens City in 2005.  Personally I hate I95.  It’s because of the traffic and particularly the trucks.  Even there we would always get off 95 at Falmouth and take 17 to 28 through Manassas to Centreville now we take 17 all the way from Falmouth.


our alternative (back way) is to go west from here to pick up I73/74 I. The middle of NC and pickup 29 at Greensboro.  One time we had to take 85 from Greensboro to Charlotte NC because of road closures east of 85 in NC.  That was a long mess.

@KymmieLI'm sorry for your family loss, and hope your wife finds comfort during this tough time.


Good afternoon everyone, :coffee:

We hosted Thanksgiving at our home, with both of our children, their spouses, and children. We also included a new boyfriend that my oldest granddaughter is courting. Also included were two college friends of our other granddaughter's who didn't travel to their homes for Thanksgiving. It was a total success, with everyone (17 total) crowding around our makeshift extended dining room table. Everyone was included in the conversation, and games. We used a whiteboard easel to play, group Pictionary, and Family Feud. At the end of the evening, the non family guests couldn't believe how much fun they had, and wished their families got along this well.


Best wishes,

      That would also include race, I presume?  Would you really take America back to the 40's & 50's?   Carolyn Marie

      Surprised Utah was first to this party.  Probably won't be the last.

      Colorado, of course.  I totally disagree with the decision.  It will most likely go to the Supreme Court anyway.     Though it may affect me negatively, I support the ability to refuse service for any reason...even including my gender and appearance.  I don't like the idea of using the force of the state to support me, when I can take my money elsewhere.     That said, I don't get why a business would refuse a sale.  Cash spends, no matter who handled it last. Seems like a great step in the direction of going-out-of-business.

      @Mmindy Well, the discussion about the Keurig was a long time ago.  It wasn't THAT important, so I let it go since I'm rather spoiled in other ways.  I'm used to the Russian tea, since I lived with my GF before we joined our husband's family.  Not my favorite, but its ok.  When I moved in with GF years ago, I knew I was going to be eating a lot of Russian food for the rest of my life.... not to mention dealing with her dominant nature.     @heatherd You have definitely had a lot going on simultaneously.  I don't think I could handle two major legal issues at once.  I can only imagine the stress.  Hopefully everything will turn out well.

      Your cats are adorable @KathyLauren.  My girl has never been outside that I am aware of.  The pads of her paws are a nice soft pink with nary a mark on them.  She has no desire to go out.     Zulu is cute hiding among the papers!

      Thank you everyone!  Sharing your experience helped me decide.  I wound up getting 4 birth certificates.  I only had one of my old one.  I submitted my application and they took my money, so it's just a waiting game now.   Hugs, Lydia

      Same here.  After years of denial, I got the nerve to wear a skirt (privately) - just to feel what it was like.  The dam kinda broke.

      Things going good for me.Went to court on Thursday,I have full guardianship of the 14 year old girl I took in.Judge was impressed  with everything.It was good for us and my family told her welcome to the family.I had to testify in court on Tueday,the man that sexually assaulted me was charged with one count of sexual assault and a hate crime last week.I was brave testifying.He faces 35 years,his attorney tried plea deal again and the prosecutor said no.I am glad the prosecutor is being good to me.He is facing 35 years now due to a couple more on his long arrest record,Rape and domestic violence conviction he did to an ex wife of his.

      @mmindy. You sure do have a nice shop.  I had a Delta 14” bandsaw, table saw, jig saw, wood lathe, drill press all Delta cast iron except the table saw that was Sears. Lots of hand tools power and hand.  Thickness planner.  Woodworking was my hobby.  I made our entire bedroom set out of maple.  I made my daughter a memory chest for our youngest granddaughter after she died of cancer, all cherry plus some hand carving, and many more things over the years.  I get it!  Each has his priorities.     my son now has all those now.   yes my wife gets indoor decorating.  Our coffee maker is Keurig but it’s a combination machine.  Make a cup, make a pot.  It shares counter space with a hot water pot.   Willow

      Well, I think your KEURIG* should have equal space in one of the kitchens. As for the Zavarka? I would give it a fair chance to develop a taste for it.   @Willow we live in a ranch style house in a middle class neighborhood. When we built the house, I wanted the largest one story home, that would fit on the smallest lot. We knew it would be our forever home, and didn't want to climb stairs, or mow a hug yard. Suzie has decorating priorities in the house, and I can do anything I want in the 2 car garage. The only gas engines in the space I affectionately call my shop, are a Harley (year round) Spring and Summer the lawn mower, Winter the snow blower. Other than that it's a small metal fabrication/assembly area, a 36" wood lathe, bench top band saw, and full size drill press. I also have a table saw with out feed table, along side that is a combination swing arm chop saw.   I'm set,   Mindy🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋

      Having more rings on my trunk than most, I go back to the era of World War II, when much of the vocal music reflected the angst of couples and families separated by war and not knowing what the future held.   Even now, some of the Vera Lynn songs of that time resonate with my emotions.
