Good morning!!  I had landscapers here yesterday and they did a great job, which lifted my spirits.  Then all the conversation here just made it better!

Sally Stone

David Gilmore and Mark Knopfler get my vote for best rock guitarists, but Joe Bonamassa is the absolute best blues guitarist.

Mark Knopfler  and Jimmy Hendrix for rock.  I also love classical guitar, and there is none better than John Williams (Australian), but Christopher Parkening is a close second.

I'll bite :)


  1. Django Reinhardt - I'm pretty sure he actually invented lead guitar.
  2. Mark Ribot - Played with Tom Waits on Rain Dogs, Real Gone and I think a couple of other albums.
  3. David Rawlings - Gillian Welch's partner.
  4. Slash - The guy in the hat from Guns and Roses.
  5. Me - I added my self, nit because I'm conceited, rather I was asked this question one while busking. A stranger came up and sat down beside me and asked me who my favorite guitar player was. I gave him the old side-eye, smiled and said "I am". He just laughed... in a good way. Then he told me a random story involving walking barefoot and fear of coyotes.

      Those are cute. Although I can't quite decide which is cuter, the shoes, or the young model's impeccable legs! 😄   With all due respect to his holyness, Tan France, I'm not sure how much I buy into "age-appropriateness" in fashion. I mean, yea, there are times and places for certain things, and not everything works in every situation. But if something really speaks to someone, isn't denying it kind of similar to denying one's gender identity? Maybe one's "age identity"! Heck, my toenail wraps right now are super-juvenile, candy-pink with a daisy and a heart, but I love them! (Although, true, I'm not currently showing them in public.)   I'm reminded of this commercial:   Or maybe it's all just the shopaholic in me speaking

      Welcome Breanna I also feared the insurance company. When I called them originally they said no transgender coverage. I went to my endocrinologist and met with her and they were able to push it through. I have been on hrt for 6 months and have had a mammogram and insurance has covered everything including the majority of my prescriptions. When or if you decide on hrt talk with your endocrinologist. Working in a male dominated field is hard. I’m not out to my union and employer yet. Eventually I will get there hiding is proving harder than coming out.

      Thank You both.  I am on the Trans pulse discord and just love it there.

      Completely understand the "work in progress" part. Websites in general, and forums in particular, are ever evolving 😃   The funny thing was, when I first opened it on my phone, I thought something went horribly wrong with the screen until I figured it out 🤪

      Thanks for the reassurance Jani.    That is my hopes, I would hope the meds wont be much of an issue.  Its just hard hearing that when you finally open to the idea of pursuing this when there is a strong chance of it completely changing life.   I think I have other avenues to take to get the one surgery I want/need.  it will just take time and lots of appointments complaining about issues i have mostly ignored after being told its no big deal.
    • RunValRun
      THAT is what matters 😃🤩

      You will get swelling for a while until the hair gets more slender and your face aclimates.  I used to get quite red with swelling but it stopped after a year or so.  Hang in there and it will be gone in due time.   Cheers, Jani

      Welcome Breanna!  I hope your journey with your wife goes smoothly.  As to insurance, I think that is a common response.  I'm retired but I don't believe my employer covered any TG services.  My current insurance doesn't provide coverage either.  After starting therapy, you may find HRT to be reasonable in cost.     Please join in the conversation.

      Welcome back Aurora!  I'm glad to see you've rejoined us.  Being able to post when we're down and get response is certain a benefit of the site.  Lots of caring people here!  I look forward to seeing you around!  Cheers,  Jani

      Welcome back Aurora.  Little different look and some new faces, but the same attitude and acceptance as always. If you remember your old name and account details, PM one of the Admins and we may be able to put you back together.

      Thank you for the welcome and reassurances.  I feel that my wife is slowly coming to as she she thinks back to my more male/not so friendly being compared to the feminine gentler being.  I try to get her to realize that if i am happy with who I am, I will be the gentle lovey dovey person she wants now more.      For now my goal is to start HRT slowly and possibly an orchi since that is my biggest dysphoria spot.  I have been hoping for a few years to get rid of those things.     I called insurance today and got what I feared would happen...Transgender care  is excluded from the policy.  I have a good insurance plan but I guess they decided the employees would not be open to others transitioning.  Working in a "mans" job sucks, but it pays the bills.  Now i need to research what steps i can take to get on HRT or even just T blockers.

      Danusia, I am glad it went well for you.   When I was ready to come out and go full-time in my community, I enlisted the help of some female friends.  I invited a lady from down the road, whom I trusted and whose views were respected in the community, to our house and told her privately what was up, and that I was planning to come out publicly.  I also had our next-door neighbours, a lesbian couple, who were among the first people I came out to privately.  With my wife and those three women by my side, I stood up at the weekly community coffee gathering and came out to the world.   I agree with you that, particularly for trans women, having female allies makes life a lot smoother.
