Feliz cinco de mayo!

Hey, guys. Happy fifth of May! It’s a big day for us here at the lake and we hope it is for you as well. We have lots of plans for the celebration.
Chad and I will dismiss school at noon so everyone can get ready for the celebration. The kids are in charge of decorating our homes – but I’m sure we dads will pitch in. We’ll have lots of balloons, crepe paper streamers, colorful paper table cloths and napkins and more surprises (we can hardly wait to see what Alex, Cal, Bella and Chance do to turn their home into the “Mexican cantina” they’ve promised).
The weather people say it’s going to be a beautiful, sunny Spring day so we’re doing a moving dinner. We’ll start at Chad and Raef’s place for chips, salsa and margaritas (virgin margaritas for the kids). Then, we’ll all walk over to Alex and Cals’ for tamales… then Keon and Ricks’ for enchiladas… then Ty and Damiens’ for quesadillas… then our house for fish tacos (the kids favorite). After all that food, we’ll head over to Jim and Carols’ for fried ice cream.
Alex has a big boom box that he’ll carry with us from cabin to cabin playing mariachi music and we’ll all carry our margaritas (and virgin margaritas) with us as we go.
Even though Alex and Matty are the only actual Latinos in our group, we all speak Spanish (in varying competencies) and after a margarita or two, we’re about as Latin as can be 🙂
Mucho cariño a todos y feliz cinco de mayo!

Dude. Here’s a bunch of Latin “bones” that look like they’d be yummy to gnaw on!

Hey guys. It’s Alex. I wanted to update you on the Koala Cove project. I asked David to do a post for me to “tag-on” to. He said “Got a subject?” And I said “I would’t mind some Latin eye candy.” So here you have it.
To date, we’ve (Denise has) sold 11 of the 14 villa units. We’re down to the one she and Scott are temporarily living in and two more. The prices have been creeping up, and the last one sold for a bit over a million-six. Obviously these buyers have more money than God!
Nathan has three crews working full time on the project and their work is beyond amazing. Each unit is being crafted like a frikin’ palace. We were originally concerned about the limited number of boat slips available, but it turns out that most of the buyers want to just be at the lake – as opposed to going out on the lake. When we first started the project, Denise said she thought a “community deck” would be nice for the owners to have as a gathering place. So I got with the architects who designed Ty and Damien’s “cabin” and now the deck is almost finished. It’s wonderful. It’s a two story deck with a perfect view of the lake. It’s big (20′ x 42′) and is built on two levels. The upper is a “sun deck” with a partial wood pergola and the lower is enclosed with “Untra view invisible screen.” Each level has plenty of room for tables and occasional furniture and the buyers love it.
The contracts specify that none of the units can be occupied before March 1st, 2021. We did that so we wouldn’t have owners all over the place while the other units are being built. We’ve carefully gone over the numbers and we’re excited that we’ve already sold enough villas to more than break-even. The last three will be pure profit. This is the first project I’ve participated in owning and it’s a good one.
The kids are great. Bella continues to work with us on colors and textures for the units and I swear I think she has a future in graphic design – or decorating – or architecture or something like that. She’s a very talented (and sweet) young lady. Chance isn’t as out-going as his sister but is a Joy. He, Dub and Austin have been reading “Lord of the Flies” and loving it. It’s a tough read for boys their age, and it’s been a struggle, but Ben is helping them work through it. Chance’s hearing continues to develop and he essentially hears just about everything – except, of course for Bella who he tends to “tune out.”
So that’s what’s going on with us here at the Lake. Our little quarantine bubble is very much intact – until this madness ends. xoxo Alex and Cal

W H O A ! W O O F ! Y U M !

Last week, I was running around on the internet and ran across a pic (#17 here) of a dude that made me go “WHOA”! I think it’s because he bears a certain resemblance to Ben. I don’t remember ever having seen this guy before (maybe Beto will correct me if I’m wrong). Unfortunately, there was just one photo and I wanted to see more of him, so I started searching. I finally found him yesterday evening. His name is “Marcos Gomez” and Chaosmen did a solo set of his pics – plus an “edge” set that has him being sucked off by Ransom. I assume he’s straight (and somewhat modest) because these seem to be the only pics of him on the web? He’s so amazing that I thought he deserved his own post.
I realize this post won’t appeal to everyone – but it sure does it for me – and I’m guessing maybe Beto as well. I ask you… what’s NOT to like about a Latin dude with a beard, hairy chest, perky nips, hairy pits, bluebird (?) tattoo, uncut dick, thick, lush pubes and oh-so-tasty looking hairy balls? WHOA! WOOF! YUM!
