It’s a “Friends Friday” look at some red-hot redheads!

Hey. It’s Keon. For the last couple of weeks, Rick has been posting guys who celebrate the diversity of our group here in the KC Northland. He’s posted black dudes (thinking of me) and Hairy dudes (thinking of Ben). This week, I thought I’d take over and post some gingers – thinking of my hubby. Honestly, until I met Rick, I’d never thought that much about redheads – and now I think about ’em all the time. So, here are some hot ginger boys I hope you’ll like. You’ll recognize pic #47 because I’ve posted it before. It’s the dude who most reminds me of Rick. xoxo Keon (and Rick)


We all went to Church yesterday morning (David, Ben, Dub, Cal, Alex, Izzie, Damien, Ty, Austin, Rick, Travon and me). After Church, we stopped for a big brunch, and afterward, Travon went home with Dub. He thinks Dub is the greatest thing ever and talks about him all the time. Then, we all spent yesterday afternoon/evening at David and Ben’s house watching the Super Bowl. We thought it was the BEST SB ever, and really, really enjoyed watching the Eagles beat the Pats.
Quick update on Travon. Overall, he’s showing steady progress. Has his good days – and some not-so-good – but he’s talking more and more and seems mostly happy. He didn’t have any decent clothes when he got here, so our friends took care of that. He’s smaller than Dub, Austin and Erik, so now he has a closet full of things they’ve outgrown. One day last week, I walked by his room and saw him sitting on the floor in front of his open closet just looking at all his clothes. He’s so proud of them. He was a perfect little gentleman at brunch yesterday and ate everything with his fork and spoon. I know that may not seem like a big thing, but trust me – it is! Ms Pam says he’s doing much better at day care now. Said he seemed “scared silly” at first, but now he, Izzie and Kylie are big buds. Izzie calls him her “other brother” and you can tell they really like each other.
So, all things considered, we think it’s going real well. We read to him every night and he has “Muff” to keep him company in bed. Rick and I know there’ll be challenges ahead, but we love being foster dads – and we love Travon!

If it’s November 5th, it must be “National love your red hair day.”

David and I took Rick and Keon out for dinner this evening and were all surprised when our waiter brought a bottle of wine over and gave it to Rick. He said the manager had sent it in honor of “National Love your red hair day.” We were all surprised because none of us had ever heard of “National love your red hair day,” and, of course didn’t know it was November 5th. Anyway, it was a nice bottle of wine that we shared while we toasted our favorite ginger boy. Happy day to all you redheads out there in URD land!

It’s ginger #2!

It always makes us crazy when WordPress decides not to post a photo we’ve included in a set. I have no idea why this happens – it just sometimes does. All we usually have to do is move the pic to I-photo and edit it in some way – then it will post.
So, this pic was one of our favorites from yesterday’s post and WordPress didn’t let it post. We thought about deleting the post and adding this pic and re-posting the whole thing… but, if we did that, we’d lose the comments – and we think they’re the most important part of the blog.
So……. here’s ginger #2. We think he’s FUCKIN’ GORGEOUS!
