Dude. Balding… or buzzed… It’s all good!

With Denny and Dave in the midst of a huge snowstorm, we thought a post of some “follicle challenged” dudes might warm things up a bit. Seriously guys, we’re thinking of you and hoping everything works out well. We had a similar snow storm one time when we lived in the KC Northland and it was awful! On the other hand, I’m guessing our kids would think a foot or two of snow would be awesome!!

When we decided to move to the Lake, there were a few things we didn’t plan for. One of them was haircuts. We all felt leaving our little pandemic compound was out of the question, but after a while most of us were beginning to look pretty shabby. Alex said it wasn’t a problem… he knew how to style hair (he’d been doing Bella’s hair all along). So, he started cutting our hair and that was fine – except he was “up to his neck” in Koala Cove and time became a problem. I asked him if he could teach me to cut hair and he said “Of course.” So he showed me the basics and I started practicing on Ben. The first few times were a challenge… and Ben’s hair was a bit notched and lop-sided at times but he was a good sport and his hair grows so fast it wasn’t a big deal. Anyway, long story short, now Alex, Rick and I are all reasonably competent “barbers” and haircuts are no longer a problem.
Both Keon and I have been using clippers on a “0” setting for a while, so we’re essentially bald and can “buzz” our own heads. Last week Cal came over for a haircut and told me he’d like his hair cut “exactly like yours and Keon’s.” I asked him if he’d cleared that with Alex and he said “No. It’s a surprise.” So, somewhat against my better judgement, I got out the clippers, set them on “0” and did it. Honestly, he looks GREAT – and Alex says he “loves rubbing Cal’s bald head while he’s getting fucked.”
Dub told me he likes that we’re hairless on top and asked if I would buzz his head like ours. I told him I’d be happy to do that for him – when he’s sixteen 🙂

Happy birthday dear Larry, happy birthday to you!

Larry… you’re one of URD’s dearest friends – and we’re wishing you good health, prosperity, love and every happiness on your birthday. We love you! xox David, Ben and the gang


Our objective in putting Larry’s birthday post together was to make it a collection of smooth young dudes with NO tatts and NO piercings. We think we’ve managed it… but, of course if we haven’t, our buddy Jingle will let us know 🙂

Barefoot boys with cheeks of…

We’ve done tons of “holes ‘n soles” posts over the years, but maybe not one where all the dudes still had all the natural hair “God gave ’em”. So, here are a bunch of boys who either don’t own razors – or at least don’t use them on their butt hair. YUM!


Hey, guys. It’s Chad. I saw on the “sneakers” post, that “bw,” “Denny” and “Kent” all mentioned Matty and wanted to know how he’s doing. The short answer is he’s doing fine. It’s been a little over three months since Rafe and I started “fostering” him and it’s been a whirlwind. The wedding… and moving to Table Rock… and the pandemic… and leasing a new house… and getting a new “schoolhouse”… and learning new languages…and so much more. If you think about how all this has impacted out little guy, it’s mind-blowing. We’re so proud of him and the way he’s adapted and he always has one of the greatest smiles God ever put on a kid’s face.
Last week, our attorney called and asked if we wanted to adopt “Mateo.” We said, “Of course” but we haven’t been fostering him all that long and don’t know how the State people would feel about that. Our attorney said she thought this might be the perfect time to file for adoption. She said Covid-19 has resulted in a “real mess” in the Department of Social Services and she thinks they’re trying to “work through foster cases” as rapidly as possible. So, we filed all the paperwork and we’re waiting to hear from the DSS. Our attorney says it may be several weeks before we get an answer, but she’ll stay on top of it. Raef and I are excited about the possibility of being “real parents” – and maybe a little scared too. We’d really appreciate your thoughts and prayers! xoxo Chad and Raef
