A nice honor…a close call…and a wonderful Holiday weekend at the lake.

“Beto” commented on David’s “Ben look-a-like” post, saying: “Anytime you bring us a guy that resembles Ben, the post will be a treat and a winner. But will there be a counterpart to this post? ‘Cause I have no doubt Ben is just as lucky as you. 😉”
Then, “ray” said: “Dear Beto, like you I would love to see a David look-alike post! The two of them must be a stunning pair!”
Over time, I’ve looked and looked for “David look-a-like” pics. The first two photos in this post are ones I’ve posted in the past, and they’re the best I’ve found. The second one comes particularly close… although the dude is clothed and we don’t really know what his body looks like. As far as porn stars who look like my hubby, I think “Scott Campbell” comes closest. “Scott” has been featured by Falcon Studios, Bentley Race, Hot Older Male, Red Hot Latinos, Teach Twinks, Cocksure Men, Hard Men at Work… and probably others.
There are, indeed striking similarities between “Scott” and “David.” Off hand, I’d say pics #34 through #45 look most like him.
Anyway, now you should have a pretty good idea what my husband looks like. I hope you think he’s as HOT as I do!

We’re back from a fun, eventful Memorial Day weekend at the lake. You guys already know about many of the things that made up our Holiday. Things like Pizza House pizza, pups, boats, wake boarding, Sunday church, crank ice cream, fish tacos, beer, pitchers of margaritas, great kids, lunch at the floating cafe, good friends, swimming, and quality smoke – to mention a few. Having said that, there are some particularly memorable things I want to tell you about. I’ll try to keep it short as possible:
1. Our weekend really started Friday morning with the annual “closing ceremony” at school. It’s an assembly of all students, teachers and staff. One of our Visual Arts instructors did a slide presentation with pics of just about every class, activity and special event of the school year – set to music. The assembly ended with the announcement of the annual “citizenship award,” which honors “the student who has shown by their words and actions that they possess the qualities and characteristics we hope to instill in all our students.” Each student, instructor and staff member gets one vote. We were all surprised when the Principal announced that this years’ award went to “Donald Benjamin ——-” When she said that, there was mostly silence… then she said, “Ummm, I guess I should say “Dub ——” and then everyone started applauding and cheering. Dub eventually went forward and the principal asked him if there was anything he’d like to say. He just stood there looking kind of embarrassed and said, “Thanks.” Everyone applauded some more and the Principal asked him if there was anything more he’d like so say. He finally grinned and said, “Sure. Thanks a lot.” Everyone laughed and applauded some more. It was one of the proudest moments of my life and I was really glad we had it on video so we could share it with David and our friends later.
2. Sunday, after Church, we headed out on the Lake. Chad and Raef were with us. We were just out of the cove when Austin started yelling “David, turn around. Turn around. Something’s following us. I think it’s a dog.” So we turned around and headed back toward the dock. Sure enough, we all saw what Austin was yelling about. A dog paddling along trying to catch us. When we got close, we saw it was “Bud” – paddling furiously and beginning to go under. Chad and Raef both jumped in and Chad finally grabbed him, held him up out of the water and handed him to Keon on the boat. Thankfully, he was awake, but wasn’t moving. We went straight to the dock, called Jim and told him we needed a vet. He told us to get in the car and head to Kimberling City and he’d have a vet he knows met us there. We had left “Buzz”, “Max” and “Bud” on our (locked) screened porch and somehow, “Bud” had gotten out and followed us in the boat. We figured he swam at least a quarter of a mile… an amazing feat for a pup that’s only about 5 months old. The vet met us, slapped on an oxygen mask, sedated him and put him on fluids and electrolytes. Then he did a blood test and lung x-ray. Long story short, he’s fine. He somehow hadn’t swallowed enough water to do severe damage to his lungs – and by Monday, he was running around acting like nothing had ever happened. WHEW!
3. One last thing. Monday evening we were all together for dinner on Cal and Alex’ screen porch when Austin said he had something to tell us. He was grinning ear-to-ear and said “We’re gonna build our own cabin.” Turns out, Ty and Damien are buying the extra lake lot from Scott and Denise – and have already met with a Springfield architect. Planning is underway and they say it will be finished sometime next Summer.
All-in-all, it was a GREAT weekend. Jim, Carol and the rest of us are really happy our little “Lake community” is still growing!
