Dude. Check out this hairy little fucker!

While we don’t typically do posts with just one guy, we’re making an exception here. His name is Sam Roche and you can find him at SamRoach22 on twitter. He’s young, amateur, hairy all over and obviously loves showing off his sweaty feet and hairy asshole. I realize he won’t appeal to everyone – but we’re hoping at least one or two of our buds will think he’s special.

It doesn’t seem possible, but yesterday was Dub’s 11th birthday. We don’t usually do big birthday parties because there are so many of us here in the Table Rock gang now. We had planned a small family party for Dub’s 11th.
Then Pop-pops called and wanted to know what time the grands should be here for the party. And Carol came by to ask how many carrot cake cupcakes she should make and how many freezers of hand crank ice cream Jim should plan to bring. And a bunch of the guys texted us to ask what the plans were. When we told Bella we were planning a small family party, she said “Are you nuts? It’s Dub’s birthday!”
So we ended up having a big party at “Hawks nest” – complete with fish and pulled pork tacos and every imaginable Mexican side dish (plus cupcakes and fried ice cream). It was a beautiful day with the temp reaching 74 degrees so we set up everything out on the plaza where Alex had the fountains cranked up and dancing.
Everyone was here… including Dante’s Dad and Silas’ parents, sister and her b.f. Ms Evelyn, Nathan, Diana and the twins, Taylor, Caleb and Isaiah – the whole group. Silas set up the music for the party with Sage, Ken, Brock and himself playing “Happy birthday” and entertaining everyone.
So that was our “small family party.” As usual, Dub was Dub. Running around making sure everyone had what they needed and that they were having a good time. Ben and I are anything but objective but we think he has to be one of the kindest, most genuine kids ever. We’re glad he had a wonderful birthday. Love you all. David and Ben

Dude potpourri – and an update on Dub.

From David: This is the first actual “potpourri” post we’ve done in a very long time. I used to do them frequently on various iterations of UnrulyDude and they were always a favorite because of the variety they presented. I hope you guys enjoy this bit of “dude potpourri” as much as we enjoyed putting it together!

Hey. Ben here. It’s time to wrap up our “gay porn and kids” posts with an update on Dub. As you probably know, he’s 9 1/2 years old now – and the joy of our lives. He was four when we finalized his adoption, so we’ve had a wonderful (almost) six years together. These days, he’s busy “being Dub.” The garden is finished for the year and he and Jim have plowed and disked it so it’ll be ready next Spring. We’ve had lettuce, radishes, onions, asparagus, cauliflower, potatoes, cucumbers, corn, tomatoes and more – and that pretty much describes Dub’s summer food choices. He texts both Nathan and Diana every day and goes over to see the boys at least once a week. He thinks they’re his brothers… and I guess in a way they are.
He loves school and wants to learn about everything – all at once. He’s a big help in the classroom because he sort of intuitively knows when the other kids are struggling with something… and how to help them. Chad laughs and says he has “the wisdom of a magus and the enthusiasm of a child.”
He’s been following the news about the availability of Pfizer’s Covid vaccine for
5 to 11 year olds and wants to get his first shot the minute they’re available. We’re still hoping for a big, mask-free Thanksgiving – or at least Christmas. Jim, Carol and the grandparents have all now had their “covid booster shots.
We continue to watch Jeopardy every day and are enjoying both Matt Amodio’s amazing run of wins and Mayim Bialik’s excellent hosting. Dub is confident Mayim will be the Jeopards “forever host.” We’ll see.
He and Buzz still pile in bed with David and me every night at bedtime for family talk and reading. We’ve progressed from Dr. Seuss to our current title “The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell”. We all enjoy the journey.
So that’s whats going on with Dub. He’s a great kid that we’re honored to be spending our lives with. But, of course we’re not exactly objective 🙂

Dudes. dudes. dudes. dudes. Yummy dudes. dudes. dudes.

If you ask us, these are some of the yummiest dudes we’ve run across in a while. Could almost be a WHOA post 🙂

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The club house at Koala Cove is finished and it was a perfect place for our “giving thanks get-together.” We missed having the grandparents with us this year, but we had an excellent Zoom with them that, kinda, sorta felt like being together. Surely, by next year we’ll all be able to get together – in person – complete with hugs!
“Dr. C” called Ben to tell him Evelyn’s attorney had paid a full years’ school tuition for Matty. It was a surprise, but as Ben said, “It’ll be money that’s available for some other kid who needs a good education.”
Ben and the kids had a full week off from school over the Thanksgiving holiday, so Dub worked with Nathan and his crew finishing up the addition to Chad and Raef’s house. It’s finished now and it’s wonderful. As the addition was being finished, Alex told the kids he had “new” furniture for them. He said he has a big credit at one of the consignment stores in Lenexa, KS and knew they had the right furniture. He had the people at the store e-mail pics so he could show Alyssa and Matty and they loved it. So, Chad and Raef rented a U-Haul and went and picked it up. It really is perfect.
I went over one day last week to watch the guys working on the addition. I swear, it’s like watching a ballet. Obviously, Nathan is in charge, but you’d never know it. The men on the crew just all know what needs to be done and they do it – without apparent direction. They do concrete work, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, flooring, painting and whatever else. I watched Dub and he was constantly working. No one was telling him what to do, he just did it. That evening at dinner, I asked him how he knew what to do. He thought about it for a minute- then said “Well, at first, I kept looking for what needed doing, but after a while, you just sort of ‘feel it.'”
Ben and the kids are back in school now and things are settling down after a big holiday – with another just around the corner.
We love you and wish you good health and happiness. Hang in there guys, the Covid vaccines will be here before we know it.
