Dude. Check out these colorful guys in black and white!

Hey, all. It’s Keon. It’s been a while since we’ve had a post in “black and white” and, since they’re some of my favorite pics, I thought I’d put some up.
Things are getting settled down after a busy holiday – and the kids were really excited about getting back in school this morning.
Travon totally loves the new I-Watch he got for Christmas. Now he can read his text messages instantly from his wrist, ask Seri questions without getting out his phone, and keep track of the number of steps he takes each day. When I was his age, no kid had a watch – and “smart watches” didn’t exist. Makes me feel kind of old.
Rick and I were talking and decided “Denny” must be psychic. I mean, he was talking about Diana getting pregnant before any of the rest even thought about it. We may need his special skills as time goes on 🙂
HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone. Hope 2021 is a whole lot better than 2020! xoxo Keon and Rick

Another bunch of Unrulydudes. This time in monochrome.

David and I talked with the gang last night and Cal suggested we do a post for each of the families in our “family” – and let you guys know what’s going on with the kids. We thought it was a great idea – so starting later this week, we’ll put together posts for Cal and Alex (Bella and Chance), Keon and Rick (Travon), Ty and Damien (Austin), Chad and Raef (Matty) and even David and me (this kid we know). David and I will do the pics and the guys will write the narratives. It’ll take us a while, but we think it’ll be fun. Stay tuned 🙂

Spice of life, dude!

Variety really IS the “spice of life.” Whether cut or uncut, hairy or shaved, young or old – these are some beautiful dudes – and it’s the variety that makes ’em so fuckin’ special!

Wow. What a magical… and BUSY… time of the year.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving over at Scott and Denise’s condo. Ben, Dub and I were headed over there and Dub said “We need to stop at Walgreens.” I said “What do we need at Walgreens?” He said “Bandages.” So, I said “Why do we need bandages?” and he said “So Chance won’t feel weird.” So, we stopped at Walgreens and went to the “Bandages & Bandaging Supplies” aisle. Dub said “I need to look exactly like Chance when we get there.” And Ben said “I don’t remember exactly what Chance’s bandages look like.” Dub pulled out his phone and showed us pics he’d taken of Chance and his bandages. So we bought a bunch of stuff and went out to the car and Ben and I wrapped up Dub’s head so it’d look like Chance’s. We did a pretty good job.
When we got to Denise and Scott’s condo, everyone wanted to know what had happened to Dub – and he said “Chance looks cool and want to look like him.”
When Cal, Alex and Chance got there, Chance took one look at Dub and the smile on his face was too incredible to believe. He walked over to Dub and put his arm around Dub’s shoulder and we all took about a hundred pics with our phones.
After a big dinner – and watching the Bears beat the Lions (the Bears are our fav NFL team – AFTER the Chiefs) – we came back home to finish our outdoor Holiday decorations. We had the big exterior lighting “reveal” at dusk and the neighborhood lighting is awesome. This year, we added 5 big candy canes to the front planting area and our lighting is either “COOL” according to Dub – or “Wretched excess” according to me 🙂
We hope you guys had wonderful Thanksgivings and that you’re busy planning for Christmas. It really is a magical time of the year!
