I’ve been splitting wood for three days but today I’m headed to market.  This old farmer does her best to dress decently for town.

Speaking of boob sweat I think someone should make a bra out of a mesh of some kind so it can breathe.

I dunno, mesh on the girls seems like it would be uncomfortable. Of course at my size, they can just be free unless I expect I'll be running.

 

As long as I'm not wearing, say, a sheer, white racerback shirt to the gym. Everybody got a bit of a show that day.

 

Hugs!

I think it depends on the mesh.

I would think that you also want something to wick/absorb moisture / boob sweat. I mostly wear a bra now to add a little padding and cover the always on headlights so mesh wouldn't help there. ;)

Oh yeah, that's a good point too. My sister-in-law says a chainmail bikini can be pretty comfy when you line it in something like rabbit-fut. Personally, I just used an adhesive strapless yesterday and that worked fine. Lucky choice too as I stopped by for a deep tissue massage on my way home from buying ice cream. I could be modest and half-naked at the same time.

 

Hugs!

I made 6-7 over the years. The big issue was the weight and the strain it puts on the back of the neck but steel is heavy and gets cold.  I have yet to make one for myself.

I always used aluminum, so the weight is less of an issue. You could also use a smaller gauge like... let's see if I can find it... drat. Anyway, it was this beautiful chainmail wedding gown that used a bunch of different metals. I mean it's not like we need it to stop a knife.

 

Hugs!

I was a purist about the metals and processes I used so aluminum and premade rings were off the list for a long. I still can't justify the cost of buying them. I do have my 3d printer which solves a lot of the problems but I'm overly concerned about the rings breaking. Thank you Jackie for bringing this up. I'm gonna rework my design.

I’m unfortunately not wearing my leathers today as I’ve decided to sell my 66 R 50 BMW.  I’m just a bit too old and weak at this point to handle her.  Note the scarf.  I use it to keep my wig on as I take my helmet off.  It also looked great streaming behind me.  I’m keeping the 64 Vespa to putter around and go to the farm market.  
 

Hugs,

What a great old bike! I loved the opposed engines.  The K series did nothing for me lol

It is a classic for sure and always turns heads.  Quiet and a comfortable stable ride.  I remember riding up the east coast to Martha’s Vineyard on 3 gallons of gas non stop and being comfy.  Not the fastest cafe racer but a real road bike. 
 

Hugs,

@Charlize you look so adorable in your recent pictures...you all do, but that bike is a nice surprise.  As a kid my dad would take me for long rides on his '68 R50.  I loved how quiet it was, and I'm sure that's why I recently had a strong urge to find my favorite bike...1982 Silverwing.

I see it as the lady-goldwing.  Only 500cc so I can pick it up I have to.

I chicked it out a little.  I love coming out on my bike.  I feel feminine, sexy, and free when riding.

I gave up my shadow a few years ago.  Still have the leathers around somewhere tho.

I think I would feel weird wearing them now.  Maybe the jacket would still work?  It is nice and warm.

Looking good Charlize!  I completely understand your reason to sell.  It was the same for me with my 1983 Suzuki GS1100E.

I dug out a pix of the old girl.

This was at Lake Lure on the way up toward Asheville.  It was awhile back though.

Honda Shadow 700, not real big, about like a sportster, but water cooled, with a driveshaft.  I do miss her sometimes.

two back surgeries later I had to give her up: Suzuki 750 Volusia. Before that I had a honda 550 circa 1980s and a 72 Susuki GT750. That was too much for my 16 year old self and lasted one ride before I sold it. I originally picked it up in parts to learn how to rebuild them.

My brother in law gave a ‘72 Honda CB750. He got it for parts. It took me 2 years to make it presentable and rideable. Two months later I totaled it.

Mine had been totaled once and put back together.  We also survived hitting a deer one time.   She was a tough old girl.   Fortunately, I never lost any limbs, just a lot of skin.

Looked around for some pics of the old 1952 K model Harley I had many years ago but no luck finding any.

45 cu in motor foot clutch and side shift.

8 inch over stock springer front end and one big headlight. Short Zbar handle bars.

The frame had been chopped as well but not sure exactly how much

Bobbed off  3 inches on each fender .

Being a hard tail it wasn't the smoothest ride for long trips.

It ended up being stolen while I was at a club partying with some other friends.

A friend found a few parts off it a few years later but I was over the urge to ride on two wheels by that time.

My ride now.  It is a 64 Vespa rebuilt in Vietnam and bored out to 175cc.  Certainly peppy and plenty of fun on small local roads.  And you can wear a skirt😁.

 

Hugs,

      Last weekend I finally came out to him by way of a letter. The next day he was distant and not responsive. The next day following I was getting ready for work and said he want us to have a talk about what I put on the letter. He proceeded to tell me any female presenting would not be allow in the house period that he would never see me as his daughter. I am guessing he thinks if I don't present maybe it will go away. I don't think he understands being transgender isn't a fad and doesn't just come and go. I wanted to know his boundaries and he gave me a wall. I don't think he realizes he is trying to push me down a road I can't and won't go. That road doesn't end well for me. I don't want to hate him to the point I want be around him at all. He has one daughter that considers him dead to her. I don't want to be the 2nd.

      For so many of us who transition after having established a relationship there is always fear of everything blowing up.  I know that if i had told my wife 50+ years ago that i was going to transition we would never have developed the loving relationship that has helped both of us through life's difficulties.  When i came to to her after 40 years of marriage i wasn't sure how things would go!  Fortunately we are closer than ever mostly because i'm happier now that my "worst" secret is gone.  What was once a source of shame, fear and isolation is gone.    Thank you for sharing Aofie.  Hopefully you may help others to find a path.   Hugs,   Charlize

      @WillowI don't feel you're being to sensitive. There's a big difference between impersonators and trans. I don't ever take take off the woman. It is who I am. I do take it personally when I hear others making comments or jokes. I know they're not usually directed towards me but trans people are not a joke. I also don't know where to draw the line sometimes. I am a woman (I know it in my soul and it say's so on my ID), so should I be quiet and let the comments slide so I don't out myself around people who don't know I'm trans? Be defensive and take a chance? Or, join in and solidify my identity? I don't see joining in as a option I would ever use but I'm sure someone somewhere has.

      I don't think you're overly sensitive.   I find this kind of thing offensive myself.  But I do realize the people that post it have no concept of actually being transgender.  Of course this doesn't make it less offensive, esspecially when it's done vindictively.   I am not personally a fan of the drag scene.  But whatever.  That's probably because I don't like the idea of drawing attention to myself.     As for "crossdressing"…     It was when I finally got up the nerve to try fem clothes that I busted my egg.  But I don't consider it cross dressing.  To me it's just dressing. But I do realize there are plenty of people who are content with occasional crossdressing.  I'm not offended by that.  Sometimes it's just the situation they are in, or they may be NB.

      For ladies only "Tenderness"   sooo sweet....

      Perhaps simply knowing i'm not alone has been as important in finding self acceptance as anything else.  My feelings about gender and how i express it have certainly changed over time.  Some of that was societal pressure while some was simply due to life's pressing needs.  For much too long i felt shame and guilt for being myself.  Acceptance, whether of a distinct straight path or a winding trail, can take away self condemnation.      My life seems to wind and vary in many ways including my gender.  I've been hyper male, quite female and perhaps today i'm a "tomboy".  Truck and tractor driving farmer who puts on a skirt to go grocery shopping.  I just enjoy being me even if that is in flux.     Hugs,   Charlize

      @Willow, I definitely thik the dog thing is offensive.  Not only does it show blatant disrepct for transfolk, there's an unhealthy dose of fat-shaming there as well.   As for female impersonators, drag queens have a disproportionate share of gays and transwomen compared to society, and are more "like us" than you may realize.  Also, I think Ru Paul is a treasure who has shown me how beautiful a man can be feminine even without transitioning.  He gives me hope.  He also has some pretty inspirational music!

      Sounds like a wise man. I'm sorry for you and your family.   It's never easy, even when you are expecting it.

      Solly, I'm glad you found the forum. I've found it to be a wonderful place full of caring people who share their experience, give advice & support, & accept me just as I am. I think you will find it so as well. This gender journey isn't a race, so you can take all the time you need, relax & breathe. Where we fit on the gender spectrum is where we find we feel comfortable, some are fluid & don't fix themselves with a specific label. It's all up to you.   Welcome! Delcina

      @Willow those are legitimate gripes and I concur. Wish people would respect others differences and not try to find humor where it's not.

      Good morning everyone.  Rain predicted for here in the top of Virginia today and tomorrow.   I have a question for ya’ll.  I get offended by some things which I feel are taking a shot at us.  For example, a joke on Facebook showed a fat dog and the caption was “I identify as trans slim”.  Or I don’t like female impersonators.  They are nothing like us yet they were allowed to advertise their show on on a transgender only secret website.  Am I overly sensitive?  Is it wrong to feel these sorts of things are offensive to me?  Let me know what you think.   @Elizabeth Star I was a Jack! Now Jill of all trades.  Made furniture, repaired the house and car, replaced a roof, you name it ive probably done it.  But I’m getting older and muscle mass is lessened.  My last project was definitely not up to my standard so I’m done.  Giving my stationery power tools to my son.  Gave away or sold a lot of stuff during our move out.  And will likely have more to deal with after we move in to our new place.  And my eyesight, very frustrating and upsetting when I can’t see clearly.  Nothing is ever at the correct focal distance.     let me know if I’m being overly sensitive with things I think are slaps at us.   Willow
