Happy birthday, dear Ray… Happy birthday to you!

It’s a special day for all of us here at URD because it’s the birthday of one of our dearest friends. Thank you, Ray… for your fun, insightful comments… your genuine caring for everyone in our little community… and for your friendship. We love you and wish you good health and every happiness – today and throughout the coming years. Hugs, David and Ben

Since several of you are quicker on the draw than us, we’re going to move your birthday comments from the previous post to this one so they’ll all be in one place.
from ROBERTO: “Happy Birthday, Ray! Hope you’re having a tremendous day and that it is just the beginning of more and more great moments throughout the year. 🙂 The guys have been super busy lately, but I’m sure your birthday cake is coming very soon. 😉 Always think of you when I see a completely blue sky like today’s, and under this sky I wish you all the best, my friend, today and always. 🙂 Love and hugs,

Dude. Check out these bulges, dickprints and v.p.l.’s!

Here’s a comment we received from “bw” yesterday:
“I hesitate to suggest a post, but this one inspired it, sort of. Everyone here at URD has been known to check dudes out if they are bulging, and trying not to get caught. Then Saturday I saw a throwback picture of Edgar and Johnny Winter (Johnny died 7 years ago Friday) and they are both in jeans, both pretty gifted boys, and both hanging to the right (All you younguns – Google the Edgar Winter Group). So my suggestion – a visible penis line post (or as the kids today call it a “dickprint”). And not staged for TikTok or Twitter – Real dudes showing a real bulge. I know this is a lot of work and a lot to ask, but I think it would be a fun post.”
Bill… please don’t ever “hesitate to suggest a post.” Post requests are our absolute favorite thing. This one was especially fun, so THANK YOU for a fun post suggestion! xoxo


Jingle e-mailed us pic #07 within minutes of Bill’s request. Thanks, babe!

Undies, dude. Tighty whities!

We had about 4 inches of snow on the ground by Saturday afternoon, so of course Dub and Austin wanted to get in the hot tub and make snow angels on the deck. David and I told them it’d be O.K.- and before we knew it, Travon, Bella and Chance had joined us so all five kids (plus David and I) were in the hot tub. When Chance and Bella arrived, Dub grinned and said “Hey, Izzie, you’ll freeze your tush off.” She looked at him and said “Worry about your own tush, bud.”
This was all new to Chance and we didn’t know what to expect from him, but he had great fun (except when he got in the tub after making a snow angel and yelled “My skin is on fire. My skin is burning!”
He’s a great little guy and pretty much “up” for whatever the other kids are doing 🙂

Yesterday, the gang all assembled over at Chad and Raef’s house for the Chiefs game with the Texans. Dub had gotten a new Chiefs cap with a Rally House gift card left over from Christmas. He wore it for “good luck,” but by the time the Texans were up 24-0, he had taken off the cap and put it out in the car. We were all nervous wrecks but Dub just said “It’ll be o.k. Patrick just needs to get ’em settled down so they can play. He was right – and they did – and the final score (51-31 Chiefs) had us all screaming and going nuts. What an unbelievable game it was! What incredible fun!
