Dude. I say “The darker, the better”!

Hey, guys. It’s Silas. First, I want to thank you for your kind comments on my first URD post. Apparently you share my love of buzz cuts 🙂 I guess Dante’s Sicilian heritage is responsible for his dark features – including very black hair – and I think it’s totally HOT. So, today I’m featuring dudes with black or very dark hair. There’s a variety here so I hope maybe there’s something for everyone.

We can hardly believe it, but with a lot of help from our friends, we’re moved into our new “rainbow aerie” home. Denny and Bill S asked for details, so I’ll give you a quick rundown. Alex and our architect designed the house after extensive talks with Dante and me, and I have to say the finished product is pure “Alex and Nathan”.
-We’ve already told you about the deck and hot tub which are off the lower level that’s built partially back into the cliff. The lower level has a big shower room – a “safe room” in case of a severe storm or tornado – a storage area and a mechanical room. It houses the mechanical systems and a cluster of batteries to store electrical power gathered from the solar array on the roof. The electrical engineers tell us that our battery backup is capable of providing power for the house for up to five days with no sunshine. The heating and cooling system is a ground-source heat pump which is highly efficient.
-The first floor is a complete living area with kitchen, dining area, great room, two bedrooms, two baths and a utility room. There’s a large deck off the great room that overlooks the hills and lake.
-The second floor is designed for the two kids we’re hoping to adopt and has two bedrooms, two baths and a small study.
-Nathan and his crews custom-made all the millwork, doors and cabinets for the entire house. They’re amazing craftsmen! It’s all finished in a low-sheen “whisper grey” color. We used vinyl-ceramic plank flooring throughout for easy maintenance and tough wear. The wall colors are all soft, muted shades – and Alex and Bella selected bright blue, turquoise and green accent color splashes.
-The kitchen is absolutely beautiful. The countertops are quartzite in a shade slightly darker than the “whisper grey” cabinets. There’s a bright, colorful breakfast nook with seating for six.
Anyway, thanks to Alex, Nathan and our friends, our “rainbow aerie” is more wonderful than we could possibly have imagined. Daisy obviously thinks we built the place just for her – and since it was her home first, I guess we kind of did. She loves running up and down the stairs chasing and fetching her “squeaky ball.” We plan to start looking into the possibility of fostering/adopting next month. There’s no doubt that kids are what’s needed to make the house a home.
I hope I haven’t bored you with more details than you want – but you did ask 🙂
Much love, Silas and Dante (and Daisy)

Dude. Check out these “packaged meat” selfies!

About 3 weeks ago, Ben did a “packaged meat” post that I thought was really fun. It got me thinking about guys who take selfies in their underwear – and what a wonderful thing the internet is. So here are some “packaged meat selfies” I thought you might enjoy. I think they’re yummy 🙂

Dante and Silas had a big party over at the “rainbow aerie” Saturday evening. Their house isn’t quite finished but the deck and hot tub are… and they’re spectacular. The house is being built partially into the hillside and the deck is cantilevered out over the valley. The kids’ favorite part of the whole thing is the wrought iron fence that surrounds the deck on three sides. It’s six foot high but can be retracted in one foot increments down flush with the deck. It’s an engineering wonder and a great safety feature – controlled by apps on Dante’s and Silas’ apple watches. The hot tub is designed for 10 people and the kids had a ball playing in it. It’s big enough they can actually swim in it. After dinner and a busy evening, Denise and Scott took the kids to their home for a sleep over and the “adults” got a turn in the hot tub. Of course we did it naked with plenty of smoke and margaritas and it was a blast. Silas spent some time sitting naked on the edge of the tub playing his guitar while his oh-so-beautiful uncut dick got nibbled on by passers-by. We’re all excited for them and their beautiful new home.
