Just a little catching up... random pics on the desktop...

I guess the unofficial start of Summer is here and with it came the heat here in RVA.  It also brought long time friends together and some old family pictures too.  Work is starting to pick up and keep me busy, but I would love it if more of my family and friends would let me help them, or at least advise them on their insurance needs.  I think many folks think I will run around and tell everyones business, but legally I can't... so come on guys... let me look at your insurance and see if we can save you some money and make some for me in the process...  I need to pay bills and start working towards that new Range Rover (in previous post)...

Memorial Day Weekend having beers after a day on the golf course... I played the front nine like shit, but did very well (for me) on the back nine... 3 pars and a birdie!!! Still did not make up for the shitty holes though... It was great to hang out with best friend Sloan and Mike and Dave... good funny group of guys...

Old picture of my Grandma in front of our old church way back in the 70's... she was always there with open arms for everyone... well, except Jerry Falwell... she did not take to kindly to him... they went to school together as kids.. she did not like him then and sure as heck didn't like him as he became famous... or infamous... anyway...

Me with Zeal and Roxy... Zeal is getting big... she is now 22 inches tall and weighs 56 pounds and is only 5 months old... I think we are going to have a big gurl on our hands... she is so sweet though... and goofy.  She is adjusting to her size and will get stuck trying to get up on the sofa or bed... even lose her balance when galloping through the house... too cute...

Found this old picture while looking for something in the closet... back from when I started working at Snowshoe in 1997... maybe if I drop a few more pounds I will go back to the goatee...

My mom when I was in high school... don't fuck with her... she knows how to use that thing.  She was a Brinks Guard and one of the best shots in Lynchburg... she still carries and in her 60's, she still has good aim...

Our red hot pokers have come out in full force this year.. this is the largest they have ever been.  Usually we get 4 or so blooms, but this year they expoloded...

We did a bunch of work on the backyard, moving the deck up next to the house and reseeding a portion of the backyard... and NO, I don't know if we will get a pool this year... but it may be on my Amazon Wish List.. hint, wink, hint... now my wish list is connected through smile so a portion of all purchases goes to the Fan Free Clinic... nifty, huh?

After Jeff gets up and goes to work, Roxy slowy works her way up to his pillow and will sleep next to me.. then when I get up.. she will stay there until at least noon, or until she hears me pour food into dog dish...

Best Friend Sloan and I on the golf course... we have been friends since 5th grade.. that is over 35 years... damn, we're getting old... it was good seeing him over the holiday weekend... he lives up in NJ and I need to make a trip there to visit one of these days...

Zeal and I in spare bedroom playing with selfie stick...

She thinks the queen bed in spare room is her doggie bed... who's to argue especially when she double in size...

Again, I hope everyone is doing well... make sure to check out www.sterninsurance.net and refer your friends and family to me for anytype of insurance... I can pretty much work in just about all states except PA, NY, FL, CA and TX... they have wierd laws...

TTFN!!!

A new goal in life...

... which means I will not get it because I am jinxing myself... but in 2016 when this baby comes out, I hope my family, friends and all the insurance referrals from all over will have me in a spot where I can at least afford the monthly payment on this baby.... and I want this blue one... I will be 46 and well in to mid-life crisis mode... SO WHAT!

2016 Range Rover Evoque Cabriolet



Just a rainy blah!

It has been a rainy long day here in the RVA... it was all I could do to get out of bed... but I made it.. got some work done... ran some errands... cussed at a few drivers along the way and then came back to more work...

Yesterday, our former dog nanny lost her sweet Otis... he was 13 and was one of  Pino's best friends for years... so sad...

This evening found out mom has to have pacemaker and defibrillator installed in her chest as her heart is not pumping the way it should.  We find out tomorrow when the surgery date will be.

This getting old shit sucks!

Oh well... just going to be strong as I can and try to take care of myself along the way.  Now I am going to go watch some TV and eat dinner...

Nite, Nite...

NOH8

After the big gay wedding, I went to the NOH8 photo shoot at the gay community center here in RVA...

Me and Thomas, who is a good friend of one of my uncles in Lynchburg... great to hang out with him during the wait... such a nice guy!



Now we will see in a few weeks how the pictures turned out...

My first gay wedding... that was not mine...

I had the honor of going to my first real gay wedding this weekend.  Mark and Paul, whom I bowl in the Rainbow Bowling League with, finally tied the know after being together for 8 years... I was a beautiful ceremony and even better weather at their home.  Congrats to the newlyweds... they are awesome guys!!

Speaking of awesome... what gay wedding would not have a HOT half naked bartender!!! Grrrr! 

Mary, Mark, Me and Paul...

Did you think I would not rub up against this hotness???

Yard work...my body aches...

Before, when we first built the deck after cutting down the tree...


Now, seeded and hopefully grass will grow...

 Moved the deck closer to the house and threw down some rock...





I feel a party coming on this summer...

Flamingo Down!!!

This is what happens when you don't pay attention to the new puppy running around the backyard chewing on things... she takes out a flamingo... but we caught it in time and only lost a little bit of her tail...

Of course this meant playtime moved inside in the middle of the living room floor.... Zeal has a ton of energy and not even 5 months old yet, she is growing like crazy... and wearing Roxy out...
