It Gets Longer

So, this guy goes out to a bar one night.

Not his usual thing.

He’s not the type.

But it was a holiday weekend.

He’s standing in the corner, trying his best to blend in.

Even so, he’s getting eye-balled by another guy.

The other guy is not the bar type either.

But for some reason, there they both are.

Although neither for very long.

They leave.


Which led to a hot tub.

And pancakes.

But nothing more.

Because the one guy isn’t big on one night stands.

Actually neither is the other.

They both prefer a little longer investment.

And now, eight Good Fridays later, The Painter and The Attorney have six-and-a-half years in the bank.

You know if you treat six-and-a-half right it gets longer.

    Congrats on that accomplishment, I remember when you were on Bigmuscle and you were pretty much resigned to not hooking up and along came you know who, the attorney, man I am really very happy for both of you! He is very lucky to have found such a nice guy:)
    And I am sure it will get better as time goes on!

    Glad to read you again. Me and my honey, forty one years, though tomorrow is no certainty. We have never thought of marriage, but now for legal/inheritance reasons just like Edie, we look for justice. Good on you. Love and the depth of relationship are all that matters.

  8. And how long would that be? 😉

  9. Said it before – say it again – I love you beautifully you write.

    You caress vocabulary and syntax……. swoon.

  10. What a lovely story! Amazing how unexpectedly the most wonderful things can happen sometimes.

  11. Made me smile. Congrats T!

  12. Many may come for the eye candy but all stay for the stories, writing (you are gifted and talented) and love. Congratulations!

    Just wanted to let you know that you are in my thoughts today. I hope that all is well with you and Granny and that you are simply taking a hiatus from writing. Online/blogging relationships are as real as in-person relationships. Just letting you know that someone was thinking about you.

    Does this means you’re back?
    Hope all is well.

    I’ve checked in lately and got an error message and was afraid that you had dropped the blog. Glad to see the blog is back up and I look forward to the day that you will be back. You have a gift for writing and I get so much pleasure reading what you have to say. I was the primary and only caregiver for my parents in their last days, so I have some idea what you are going through. My dad lived to be 92 and my mom 93 and I had to withdraw from my regular life for about four years and devote all of my time to them. It was tough, but I don’t have any regrets. Hang in there as many people, not just me, have you, Granny and the Lawyer in their thoughts.

    Sorry, the Attorney (not Lawyer)

  20. Was wondering if things were okay, I had been getting some strange message with one of those cryptic error messages which I do not remember. Got the same message for your previous blogs. But happy to see you are happening again even if you nave been away since this post.

    Thinking good thoughts and wishes for all three of you.

    I miss hearing what Tony has to say……. Hope all in life is ok…….

    I have to agree–so glad your blog is back. You were missed. You are loved. To withdraw was difficult.

  23. I check your blog every day. For several days it was missing, and today it’s back. I wish you well, and I miss reading about you, granny and the attorney.

  24. I’ve been getting a forbidden notice every time I tried to check in here, but always kept on trying. Tonight I was connected through which was a nice surprise. I hope everything’s going well, and to see you back here again sometime soon.

    Glad your back! Like Will, Mark & Robert I’ve been checking but got the same error message
    Hope all’s well and look forward to another post (hopefully soon)
