It’s a “Friends Friday” look at some hot, follically-challenged dudes!

Hey, guys. It’s Rick. Sorry we missed last weeks’ post. We’ve been insanely busy with school, work and being foster parents. Maybe things will slow down a bit in a couple of months when I finally get my Masters degree. As you know, we’ve been posting pics that represent the diversity of our group of KC Northland friends. We’ve posted black dudes (like Keon), Hairy dudes (like Ben), Redheads (like me) and Latin boys (like Alex). This week, I thought we’d post some guys who don’t have much (if any) hair up top (like David).
David is our very special friend who kind of started the whole Northland gang thing when he met Ben and they became a couple. Ben says David used to worry a lot about his thinning hair.. then, no-shave Movember came along and he grew a beard and Ben convinced him to let him “buzz” his head. He’s been doing that for a while now and, honestly, he’s just about the HOTTEST guy you could imagine. Ben says he spends maybe 5 minutes buzzing David’s head every Saturday morning before they shower and they’re saving the money David used to spend on haircuts for a vacation some day. Seriously, it’s a great look – for an awesome friend!

Pam called Wednesday to tell us “some dude with the State social services department” had come by to talk with Travon. She said she made a phone call to make sure he was legit – then let him and Travon talk. Then, yesterday, he (an “assistant director of the department”) called to see if there was “a convenient time for him to drop by and talk with Keon, Travon and me.” Long story short, he came by late yesterday afternoon – checked out our house and Travon’s room – and we talked. He congratulated us for “accomplished amazing things with Travon.” He said when he went to Pam’s day-care, Travon had actually talked with him and told him about going fishing with his Dad, Dub and Unca Chad. He said he and Dub caught some HUGE fish and Unca Chad cleaned ’em… and they brought ’em home and his other dad cooked ’em. The State guy was totally blown-away. He said Travon’s former foster parents had applied for supplemental funding because he was “deaf and dumb.” He said they’ve since been removed from the list of approved foster parents.
Anyway, the visit went well, and Keon, Travon and I have become a close little family. Sometimes Travon gets moody and doesn’t want to talk to us – but his “moods” never last long. He for sure loves crawling up in bed with us and having us read to him every night – and now he says “love you,” when we put him and Muff to bed (we think that may have been Dub’s idea?). As you may have guessed, Keon and I are absolutely crazy about this little dude!
