“Still In Love With You”

For my Husbear….

the Husbear

Still In Love With You, by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy

So, when it rains,
I’ll shield your head
And when you cry,
I’ll wipe those tears
Because it’s you, through all these years
And I’m still in love with you

Drop to my knees at Christmas time
And ask you please, if you’d be mine
Because it’s you, through all these years
And I’m still in love with you

We walked the streets of the Crescent City
We held hands in China Town
We watched the sun go down on the ocean blue
That’s when I knew that I would always love you

So when the day turns into night
I know that everything’s all right
Because it’s you, through all these years
And I’m still in love with you

Yes, I’m still in love with you


I am.

Until next time...

Meme of 99 Have and Have Nots

Stolen from Sideon’s Sanctuary.

Rules are relatively simple: bold the items you’ve done; don’t bold items you haven’t done.

Here’s my list of 99 things that I have or have not done.

1. Started your own blog (I think that’s what this thing is…)
2. Slept under the stars (It used to be often, but the last time was when I was younger in Boy Scouts…)
3. Played in a band (In elementary school… and I played clarinet… but is that really a band?)
4. Visited Hawaii
5. Watched a meteor shower (I was an sky-watching nut when I was a kid…)
6. Given more than you can afford to charity
7. Been to Disneyland/ World (I lived 20 minutes from WDW growing up as a kid… and the Husbear and I go back for Gay Days now.)
8. Climbed a mountain (Really and metaphorically…)
9. Held a praying mantis
10. Sang a solo (I was in chorus in high school, but I am fairly certain I didn’t sing any solos.)
11. Bungee jumped (Hell no! I like my spine as dysfunctional as it is now.)
12. Visited Paris (Only if the French pavilion at EPCOT counts? Or Paris, Texas? Or Paris, Kentucky? Or Paris, Arkansas?)
13. Watched a lightning storm at sea (Many camping trips sleeping on the beach as a kid….)
14. Taught yourself an art from scratch (If teaching myself to scratch can be considered an art….)
15. Adopted a child (Not technically, but the Husbear’s kids consider me “dad”….)
16. Had food poisoning (Go fast food!)
17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty (When I was a teenager we went and I climbed the circular stairs to her crown twice.)
18. Grown your own vegetables (Had our first garden last year. And then there were the attempts as a kid.)
19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France
20. Slept on an overnight train
21. Had a pillow fight (Wow… that was a long time ago. I had to think about it for a bit.)

61. Sold Girl Scout Cookies
62. Gone whale watching (I’ve seen plenty of big girls at the beach. I know, wrong.)
63. Gotten flowers for no reason
64. Donated blood, platelets or plasma (They gays aren’t allowed to donate blood… and then there’s the whole having tattoos thing that they are not too keen on either. But I bring both up when they ask… just to watch them be uncomfortable.)

88. Had chickenpox (And I still have some of the scars to prove it!)

91. Met someone famous (Of course, “famous” is a relative description to whom all thinks so.)
92. Joined a book club (Damn you Time-Life!)
93. Lost a loved one (I actually have a hard time answering this one… it all depends on what “loved one” means. I’ve lost people around me, but “loved one” only applies to a few people to me.)
94. Had a baby
95. Seen the Alamo in person
96. Swam in the Great Salt Lake (Attempted to float, but still didn’t do it very well. I’m not the most buoyant person….)
97. Been involved in a lawsuit (I have an inherent dislike of lawyers at this point in my life….)
98. Owned a cell phone (For real? IS there anyone left who hasn’t?)
99. Been stung by a bee (That was a sucky last have/have not. How anticlimactic.)

Until next time...
