Dude. Balding… or buzzed… It’s all good!

With Denny and Dave in the midst of a huge snowstorm, we thought a post of some “follicle challenged” dudes might warm things up a bit. Seriously guys, we’re thinking of you and hoping everything works out well. We had a similar snow storm one time when we lived in the KC Northland and it was awful! On the other hand, I’m guessing our kids would think a foot or two of snow would be awesome!!

When we decided to move to the Lake, there were a few things we didn’t plan for. One of them was haircuts. We all felt leaving our little pandemic compound was out of the question, but after a while most of us were beginning to look pretty shabby. Alex said it wasn’t a problem… he knew how to style hair (he’d been doing Bella’s hair all along). So, he started cutting our hair and that was fine – except he was “up to his neck” in Koala Cove and time became a problem. I asked him if he could teach me to cut hair and he said “Of course.” So he showed me the basics and I started practicing on Ben. The first few times were a challenge… and Ben’s hair was a bit notched and lop-sided at times but he was a good sport and his hair grows so fast it wasn’t a big deal. Anyway, long story short, now Alex, Rick and I are all reasonably competent “barbers” and haircuts are no longer a problem.
Both Keon and I have been using clippers on a “0” setting for a while, so we’re essentially bald and can “buzz” our own heads. Last week Cal came over for a haircut and told me he’d like his hair cut “exactly like yours and Keon’s.” I asked him if he’d cleared that with Alex and he said “No. It’s a surprise.” So, somewhat against my better judgement, I got out the clippers, set them on “0” and did it. Honestly, he looks GREAT – and Alex says he “loves rubbing Cal’s bald head while he’s getting fucked.”
Dub told me he likes that we’re hairless on top and asked if I would buzz his head like ours. I told him I’d be happy to do that for him – when he’s sixteen 🙂

It’s a “Friends Friday” look at some hot, follically-challenged dudes!

Hey, guys. It’s Rick. Sorry we missed last weeks’ post. We’ve been insanely busy with school, work and being foster parents. Maybe things will slow down a bit in a couple of months when I finally get my Masters degree. As you know, we’ve been posting pics that represent the diversity of our group of KC Northland friends. We’ve posted black dudes (like Keon), Hairy dudes (like Ben), Redheads (like me) and Latin boys (like Alex). This week, I thought we’d post some guys who don’t have much (if any) hair up top (like David).
David is our very special friend who kind of started the whole Northland gang thing when he met Ben and they became a couple. Ben says David used to worry a lot about his thinning hair.. then, no-shave Movember came along and he grew a beard and Ben convinced him to let him “buzz” his head. He’s been doing that for a while now and, honestly, he’s just about the HOTTEST guy you could imagine. Ben says he spends maybe 5 minutes buzzing David’s head every Saturday morning before they shower and they’re saving the money David used to spend on haircuts for a vacation some day. Seriously, it’s a great look – for an awesome friend!

Pam called Wednesday to tell us “some dude with the State social services department” had come by to talk with Travon. She said she made a phone call to make sure he was legit – then let him and Travon talk. Then, yesterday, he (an “assistant director of the department”) called to see if there was “a convenient time for him to drop by and talk with Keon, Travon and me.” Long story short, he came by late yesterday afternoon – checked out our house and Travon’s room – and we talked. He congratulated us for “accomplished amazing things with Travon.” He said when he went to Pam’s day-care, Travon had actually talked with him and told him about going fishing with his Dad, Dub and Unca Chad. He said he and Dub caught some HUGE fish and Unca Chad cleaned ’em… and they brought ’em home and his other dad cooked ’em. The State guy was totally blown-away. He said Travon’s former foster parents had applied for supplemental funding because he was “deaf and dumb.” He said they’ve since been removed from the list of approved foster parents.
Anyway, the visit went well, and Keon, Travon and I have become a close little family. Sometimes Travon gets moody and doesn’t want to talk to us – but his “moods” never last long. He for sure loves crawling up in bed with us and having us read to him every night – and now he says “love you,” when we put him and Muff to bed (we think that may have been Dub’s idea?). As you may have guessed, Keon and I are absolutely crazy about this little dude!

Dude. Hair is over-rated!

I walked into the bathroom one day last week and saw David examining his hair in the mirror. I said, “What’s up, babe?” He said, “At the rate I’m losing hair, you may have a bald husband before long.” I grinned and said, “Cool! That’ll make you even sexier.” He said, “I’m not so sure about that.” I said, “I think you’d look sensational bald.” He said, “I don’t know how I feel about that. I kind of like my hair.” I said, “Babe, I love you with or without hair on your head. I do, however seriously love the hair on your ass.” So, I bent him over and started demonstrating with my tongue. I think that pretty much put things in their proper perspective 🙂
