Check it out. Dudes rated “PG”

Hey, guys, it’s Ben. I wasn’t sure what rating to assign to this post, so I looked up the ratings guide on-line:
“G: General Audiences. This program is designed to be appropriate for all ages. …
PG: Parental Guidance Suggested…
PG-13: Parents Strongly Cautioned. Some material may not be suited for children under age 13…”
Not sure whether this would be “PG” or “PG-13”. As far as I’m concerned, it could just be rated “HOT”.


Here’s a letter to the editor from today’s Kansas City Star newspaper:
“DUBIOUS DISTINCTION
Governor Mike Parson welcomes you to Missouri. The “Not-Me” State. The COVID capital of the U.S.
When you leave, take home a special gift to your family and friends, the delta variant virus. You will remember it for the rest of your life. Enjoy your visit!”
In Taney County, MO where we live, the COVID vaccination rate is just over thirty percent and the risk level is “SEVERE.” As a result, we’re locked down as tight as we were before the vaccines became available. We all have a bit of “cabin fever” but we’re proud of how well the kids have been dealing with it. We’ve been spending most afternoons out on the lake – boating, fishing, swimming and wake boarding. That’s a BIG help.
On rainy afternoons (we’ve had quite a few) Dub has been hanging out at Nathan and Diana’s -helping Diana with the babies. He says he’s gotten “real good at changing diapers.” Says the important thing to remember is to “keep their dinkies covered when you take the old diaper off ’cause cold air turns ’em into pee fountains.” I asked him if minds changing diapers and he said “Nah. It’s just pee and poop 🙂

Hand prints

I ran across a self-pic on-line of a dude in a jockstrap (pic #1) and went “WHOA”!!! I showed it to David and he said “WHOA, indeed”!!! I thought it needed to be posted, so I started looking for pics. We haven’t done a “jockstraps” post since December 2018, and no “G-rated” posts since July, 2017, so this theme came to mind. I realize it won’t appeal to everyone, but it sure does it for me – and David says he likes it too. 🙂


So much to tell you. As soon as we moved to the lake, we started planning the new deck and hot tub. Alex had done sketches and we were excited. As it happened, Alex has an Amish crew that’s doing all the carpentry on the Koala cove villas, and they were waiting on materials he’d ordered. So he said we could use them to build our deck and privacy fencing if we wanted. We for sure did… so they started on the Tuesday before the 4th of July weekend. They took Saturday and Sunday off and were back at it on the next Monday. There are five of them and they’re the most talented carpenters we’ve ever see. They’re led by “Brother Nathan” who’s 26 and is “drop-dead gorgeous” (in a married, Amish, hands-off” sort of way). Dub thinks Nathan is awesome and told us he asked him if he needed a helper. Nathan asked him if he was a carpenter and Dub told him “No. but I can be if you teach me.” So he’s been helping Nathan every afternoon. Alex told us Nathan is crazy about kids and confided in him that he and his wife have been trying to get pregnant for over a year. He’s a really good guy and we’re hoping it’ll happen for them soon.
Our new 10-person hot tub is a “Hydropool” built in Canada. It’s been ordered for almost two weeks and will be here on Friday. It’s bigger than the hot tub in K.C.
but we won’t have trouble filling it with bodies (pics #49 through #52).
Ty and Damien told us there wasn’t any need for us to pay for water and electricity because they had plenty from their spring and solar panels. The crew has run water and electrical lines to our deck and it’ll be cool having free water and electricity.
The crew has built the deck using the specs provided by Hydropool so it’ll be ready when the hot tub arrives. They poured a concrete pad under the deck to support the tub and Dub said Nathan told him he should put his hand prints in the concrete. So Dub did that and wrote his name under them with a stick. When he was finished, he said “Now you, Nathan.” Nathan said he just laughed and said “No, not me. I’m just a carpenter.” He said Dub looked him in the eyes and said “Naw. You’re the best carpenter ever and my friend so you need to put your handprints next to mine.” So, Dub and Nathan’s handprints are in the concrete under the deck but no one will see them. Dub says “it doesn’t matter because we’re friends and we know they’re there.”

Dub is seven. Oh, my goodness. OH, MY GOODNESS!

You’re probably thinking “What tha F… are these pics doing on a gay porn blog?” Good question. It’s because it’s Dub’s 7th birthday and he’s growing every day and sometimes we wish we could slow down time. He’s surely one of the most interesting little dudes ever. He’s a kid when he’s watching “Toy Story” movies, reading “Sky Raiders,” roughhousing with Buzz or getting hysterical over farts with Austin – but he’s very “grown up” when it comes to school work, his daily chores or working at the animal shelter. Whatever he’s doing, he’s a JOY and we thank God every day for allowing us to be part of his life.

Dub doesn’t know it, but there’s going to be a birthday party for him at his school today. There’ll be cake and ice cream – and one of the school secretaries has organized a “card shower.” We understand that one of the art classes even spent a day making birthday cards for him. We know he’ll be thrilled. David, Dub and I will celebrate his big day at home tonight and I’m sure his Mom and Grandparents will Skype with him.
We asked him what he’d like to do for his special day and he said he’d like a pizza party here at the house with all our family and friends, so we’re doing that on Saturday (celebrating his and David’s birthdays). All the Northland gang will be here plus the grands and a bunch more. It’ll be a CROWD, so we’re making it an open house “from 3 p.m. till whenever,” with a “make your own pizza and salad bar.” We’ll update you after the big day 🙂
