I stayed home this morning,  instead of going to service.  I slept curled up next to GF until 11am, but I feel like I got hit by a truck.  Probably going to be totally sick soon. 🙄  My partners considered not going to service in case they and the kids are getting sick, but went anyways since service was outside and they could keep a bit of distance.  GF is stable, at least.  Her fever got to 103 at one point, but is back down.  She has had a fever of 105 during previous illnesses, which scares me.  

 

But we're having our Easter dinner in spite of all this.  Glad I did a lot of prep work yesterday, so my partners can finish up.  Hopefully everyone is having a good Easter celebration and nice weather 😇

Good Monday morning 

 

back to work after a long catch up weekend. My wife went with me to Easter service.  All our friends, which is most everyone stopped to greet her.  As is normal, lots of people we did not know were there as well.  Young people with children too.  That was nice. I know young people with kids are always concerned their child or baby is or will be disruptive but we are mostly grandparents, bring them on, we love having your children there.

 

Pollen is really bad here.  I suffer from nasel issues and I have difficulty breathing when it’s this bad.  I have to be careful blowing my nose as I have some weak blood vessels in my nose.

 

everyony have a great day.  @KymmieL I hope Va is able to help your knee.

Good morning, everyone!!! Still having some mild aftereffects from the stomach virus but ate a light dinner last evening and tolerated a cup of coffee this morning so I'm almost there.

 

The Spring allergy season is kicking up here, too @WillowI've only got mild allergies so it's nothing Allegra doesn't control.

 

We were watching the PGA golf tournament yesterday when we noticed that the winner had one of his sponsors on the front of his hat - Transcard. My wife looked at me and asked "Do you have one of those? Is it like a Mancard?" We both broke into laughter.  Yes, I'm a card carrying member. 🙂

 

Have a wonderful day, everyone!!

@April Marie pollen is so thick her that everything is yellow. Cars, sidewalks outdoor furniture and it gets inside too.its an 11 out of a 1-10 scale until Wednesday the the expected rain will wash the air but it will build back up.  Pollen is early this year but we still have two or three more weeks of suffering.

My knee is feeling a lot better today. I am going to hold off my trip to Cheyenne for right now. Starts acting up again, I'm going straight away.

 

Going to be solo this weekend. My wife and son are going to Thermopilius  for a conference. My wife has, our youngest is tagging along to hit the hot springs. I had planned on heading to the trans meeting in Denver on Sat. but they don't hold one the first Sat of the month. Bummer.

 

Two weeks until I get 10 days off. The bosses are going to Mexico on Vacation and closing the shop. So, involuntary vacation for me too. Why couldn't it be in mid May so I could go to Bowling Green and not loose $$ twice. Still not sure of the May yet. 

 

Well, coffee is calling me names since I haven't drank it yet.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

I wish you both success on that.  I quit it years ago, but I consider it one of the hardest things to kick - but worth it.

That's good news about your knee getting better. Hopefully it'll be back to the way it was before that. I never know how to act when I'm by myself.

I always wonder why people start?  Was it like an "everybody's doing it" sort of thing?  Or perhaps in previous generations we didn't know as much about the health issues (or didn't care) as we do now?  I tried a cigarette once in high school.  Nasty.  Thankfully my GF quit smoking long before we met.  She told me she used to smoke to calm herself down.  IDK how much or how long, or if that's why she has heart issues. 

 

She's finally perking up a bit today, after about 36 hours of flu misery.  And while I feel like I've got no energy, I'm thinking I might avoid getting really sick.  Its easy to tell when GF is feeling better, since she's back out in her shop making noise, at least for an hour or so at a time.  😆

This was back in the 60's for me.  I guess it was "cool" maybe - everyone did it.

I have tried it a couple of times since I quit.  It makes me feel sick - which I don't enjoy.  Actually, I'm glad about that.  It's a nasty stink that follows you everywhere.  But if you smoke, you don't really notice it.

I just tell people I don't smoke… tobacco.

Good morning, all!! Finally over the stomach flu effects and enjoying coffee again. Woo hoo!!

 

I tried smoking cigarettes several times in the early 70s and hated it so I never picked up the habit. My wife did and smoked until she got pregnant with our son - quit cold turkey. She said the urge was there for years but was then replaced with a huge distaste for the smell of cigarette smoke. 

 

Have a beautiful day!!

Good morning 

 

eating my English breakfast, you know it I’m sure, cheerio.  Ok I’m not awake enough for a good joke so you’ll have to settle for a bad one, really bad!

 

Yesterday was a crazy day.  I thought I was scheduled to start at 7.  Got up went to work, “what are you doing here? You don’t start until noon.”  And it wasn’t a joke either. Went back at noon scheduled until 5:30.  About 4 I get a call, can you stay later the night person called in sick.  So I worked until 7, the manager came in and she worked until close.  I told her what I had gotten done during my shift, then she started asking me why did you have to do this or that.  It should have already been done, 

 

where are these? Where is that? Was this done?  All things that should have been done before I got there.  She was so upset, not at me, that I had to help settle her down.  So she asked me to make sure that l do the things that didn’t get done Monday during my shift today..

 

I asked my neighbor why she gave my door a one finger salute.  She I don’t know what you’re talking about.  Me, I have you on video.  She sputtered and went back inside.  I wasn’t angry, didn’t raise my voice or anything but I wanted her to know, I knew what she had done.

 

overall an interesting day but no April fools jokes.

Good morning everyone, 

 

It was a good weekend of family visiting for the Easter Holiday which most of my family observe. In the spirit of love thy neighbor, I found out that most of my wife’s family are okay with me coming out and appearing more androgynous. In the other side of the family my sister just under me only spoke a few words to me, for the most part she avoided me. The rest of the family treated me as though nothing had changed and I was still me. One of my nieces who found my instagram account and was worried that someone had hacked my identity, was the most sensitive and loving. She acknowledged the needed diversity of opinion and reality we all have secrets on some level or another. For me it was great to see all the nieces, nephews and their new babies. We had three different egg hunts, based on ages. It was Al’s cool that one of the rules was: You could only pick up eggs that were the same color as your basket. 
 

In hindsight my wife’s side of the family is older and more conservative and reserved in openly accepting my transition. My side of the family are younger and more liberal and in touch with real world diversity. With the exception of my sister. Overall it was a great experience, my wife mentioned it as well during our 4 hour drive home. The more people who know and accept me the easier it is for her to also feel comfortable with our relationship changes. 
 

My third cup of coffee is gone, and I’m still thinking about a nap.

I think I just have a cold and keep drinking warm drinks. I have been in and out of it today. I don't know why I'm so tired. I'm talking to possibly three men friends. One has never seen a trans person. He has been the most active on communicating. Maybe turn into something more! I don't want to jinks it though.

Mmindy, Is that you after 1 or 2 cups?

 

Well, of course. The weather is going to be great this week. With forecast of 65 Friday. but tanks for the weekend  47 Sat with white junk Sunday.

 

If it does turn gorgeous, I'm riding back to work on Friday after lunch. It is a moral imperative.

      It's kind of like the very slow recovery after a devastating hurricane (which mercifully I've not lived through). Rainbows do tend to appear post-storm.    About the Don't Say Gay settlement. Teachers are now allowed to talk about LGBTQIA+ stuff & to be LGBTQIA+, as long as it's not part of the curriculum. So still no formalized education allowed.    The overall impression on the culture of Florida and its influence on US and world culture has had its effect. I do consider myself an optimist and a realist, and do not mean to seem pessimistic. It is good that DeSantis has cooled his jets to whatever extent he has. But the collateral damage here (and by extension elsewhere) is palpable. Yes, people rejoice - we can gather once more and celebrate pride. But it seems to require more guts than just a few years ago bc so many h8ers have been enabled and empowered by policies and demonizing rhetoric over the last few years.    The wonderful thing about hurricane recovery, returning to that comparison, is that it often brings out the very best virtues in people such as compassion, kindness, generosity, and a deeper sense of fellowship and goodwill.

      Seems like they caught him pumping gasoline onto a political fire for sure.  I do think that for the time being he has been cooled down a bit.

      I am not completely sure what you mean here.  To be "held responsible" means that they have been investigated and brought to justice by any number of legal and financial means.  That would be a good thing, and has been done recently in a case for slander and libel where the organization agreed to pay its victims many millions of dollars.  In that case the victims were NOT Trans, but the platform was "held responsible". If you mean simply "found to be responsible" by evidence obtained from various credible sources, then of course there are options for the victims to pursue to "hold them responsible" in monetary or terms of personal freedom of the officers.  There are many such organizations that do foster hatred of our community and we have taken different forms of action which includes exposing their hatred and intentions to other public media.  It is not a "what if" the groups do this, it is done regularly.  As long as they are deemed to be private and not government supported, the best we can do is avoid such places.  If the site is Government Supported, then there is a chain of legal events that one or many legal organizations that support the Trans Community can bring actions to have corrected via the Courts or other agencies as dictated by law.

      Florida’s LGBTQ+ residents relieved after easing of DeSantis’s anti-gay laws Past 12 months show evidence of radical change in political climate, starting with judge again allowing children at drag shows. Leaders of Florida’s much-embattled LGBTQ+ communities say the worst of Governor Ron DeSantis’s three-year onslaught against them may be over, with the official start of Pride month celebrations only days away. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/article/2024/may/27/florida-lgbt-law-ron-desantis

      I have four purses. A Coach purse being the only big-name brand but it's not in great shape. I might get another Coach purse because I like their design.

      Happy Memorial day. As a veteran of the armed forces. I know the sacrifice that has been given by others like me. Each and every service member signs the check up to and including my life, payable to the Untied States of America. Some have had this check cashed, either in battle or because of it. Today we honor those men and woman.   It is sad that some people just think it is a extra day off to raise hell and get drunk.   Today I honor my father and brother in law, two uncles, and all of those I have met while in uniform, who have passed.     Hugs to all.   Kymmie

      I always hated wearing hats but am finding some new love for them now, especially with longer hair to try to control.

      Hats can be fun.  A nice sun hat with a wide brim.  You gotta watch out in the wind though.

      Goodness, that could never happen.  Maybe you're just being a little paranoid?

      The tornados made our news here. Death toll 18 so far? Yikes. It seems like the USA is infamous for them, unfortunately. Stay safe, y'all.   Public holidays to revere our veterans and war dead are sacred. Our equivalent is ANZAC Day on April 25th each year. To those who served, THANK YOU.
    • Mmindy
      Good morning everyone,   Yes, @awkward-yet-sweet it was very strong weather day down South and in the Midwest. Our thoughts and prayers are with them as they recover. It’s also good to hear that you and yours are doing well too.    My day started early as Parker needed to go outside to do his business and potty. Since it was dawn and flag etiquette requires all USA 🇺🇸 flags to be flown at half staff from sunrise until noon in honor of our fallen veterans, I took care of my flag. I fly it 24/7 on a lighted pole following the www.starsandstripesdaily.org guidance.    Later today we will be gathering at our son’s house for a cookout. Other family members will be bringing their dogs to be introduced and socializing with Parker.    Best wishes, stay positive, and motivated.   Mindy🌈🐛🏳️‍⚧️🦋
