Dude. Check out these “Bad Boys”!

We didn’t want Jingle to have to suffer through another frozen Sunday morning without a fresh batch of dudes to go with his dark roast – so here are some boys who are “bad” (in a good way).

The kids and I have been watching Trump’s second impeachment hearing in school the last few days. They wanted to watch it and I thought it would be a good learning experience. In the process, we’ve become big fans of the lead impeachment prosecutor, Jamie Raskin. This really is an awesome group of kids. Dub, Austin, Travon and Chance seem to really grasp what’s happening in the hearing, and they’re good to help me explain things to the others. The outcome was disappointing, of course… but the truth was clearly on display. We’ll spend some time talking about it again on Monday.
We talked with the grandparents this morning. They’ll be getting their second covid shots on February 26th. They’re having to drive to Clinton, MO for their shots and that’s about 90 miles from Springfield. Well worth the trip!
We’re happy to hear that so many of you are getting your shots. Maybe we’ll get this damned pandemic under control before too much longer. Be safe. Keep wearing your masks, social distancing and washing your hands. Stay well. We love you. Ben and David

“I’m basically a trashy fucker.”

We’re not doing a “Valentines Day” post this year because there’s so much going on here right now. Having said that, we want to wish each and every one of our wonderful on-line friends a Happy Valentines Day! We hope this special “day for lovers” brings you joy, good health and every happiness! xoxo Ben and David


Raef called yesterday evening wanting to know if it’d be o.k. if he stopped by for a drink. He said Chad was working the evening so he could have Valentines day off – and, of course go to the meeting with DSS. We told him we were just about to do our nightly reading session with Dub and Buzz, but we’d be free in about an hour. He said that sounded great and he’d bring a big batch of hot buttered rum. When he got here we grabbed our drinks (and a pipe) and headed to the hot tub. When we were comfortably settled into the water, Raef said he needed to talk about “a whole bunch of stuff.” I said, “That’s cool. Do it.”
He started by telling us about growing up in a trailer outside of a small town in East Texas. He said his “old man” was a total asshole who stayed drunk most of the time and got off on hitting him and his mother. He said every time his old man heard anything about gay people he’d say things like “What we need is an open rifle season on them fuckin’ queers.” But, he said his father wasn’t the only person he knew who hated gays. Said their preacher and his teachers and football coach all hated them. Raef ran away from home when he was 15 and ended up living with an Aunt and Uncle in Fort Worth and graduated high school there. He said his Aunt and Uncle were “good people” but they also hated “queers” and continually warned him about them.
Anyway, he eventually got a good job and ended up in Missouri. He said “I don’t live in East Texas any more, but I guess I’m basically a trashy fucker.” He said he’d tried dating girls but just never found one who did anything for him. Then, one day over at a boat dock on Smithville lake, he ran into Chad. He said they talked for a while and decided to go out crappie fishing together. He said “Man… I thought I was a good fisherman, but Chad is the best. He can find ’em and catch ’em anywhere, anytime. And we got along really well and got to be friends and started hanging out and doing stuff together. He said Chad talks about Dub all the time. Said he’d helped him with his garden and loves being around him. Says he’s the neatest little dude he’s ever known. Then Chad introduced him to Rick and Keon and he thought they were good people – even if they are gay. Then, over time he met the rest of the Northland gang and “I realized everything I’d been taught about gay guys was wrong. I mean, you’re our friends and I love being with you and doing stuff.”
Then, he said one night he and Chad had gone out to a bar and got pretty wasted and ended up at Chad’s house and somehow they started kissing and “the next thing I knew, I was fucking him and it was the most amazing thing in the whole world. Then, a couple of weeks later, we were watching a football game on t.v. and… I still can’t believe it… but I just looked at him and said “Babe. I want you to fuck me.” And he said “Are you sure?” and I said “Please.” So, he did – and it hurt like Hell at first – then it started feeling o.k. and it ended up being about a thousand times better than the most amazing thing in the whole world.”
We sat there in the hot tub for a while passing the pipe and relaxing and David said “So, what happens now?”
And Raef said “I love Chad and I want to spend my life with him. I know he loves me, too… and we have a house and Bud… and I know he wants a kid like Dub or Tra or Chance or Austin or Bella more than anything. And I want what Chad wants. I’ve been thinking maybe we’d have a better chance of getting to foster Mateo if we were married, so I was wondering what you guys would think about me asking him to marry me.”
I started laughing and Raef frowned and said “What’s so funny?” I said “How could what we think possibly matter? If you love him and want to have a family and spend your life with him – then you and he – and hopefully Mateo – are all that’s important.”
Then, Raef started laughing and David and I were laughing… and he said “I’m gonna go home now. But I’m gonna stop at Hi-Vee and buy Chad a Valentines card, and tomorrow morning I’m gonna ask him to fuck me… and while he’s got his dick shoved way up in my guts I’m gonna say “Happy Valentines Day, babe. Will you marry me, please?”
We all laughed some more – and David said “That sounds like a good plan to me.”
Chad called this morning to tell us he and Chad were headed to the “Recorder of Deeds office” to get a marriage license. He asked us not to tell Dub yet because he wants to ask him to plan the wedding and be his “best man.”
We’ll keep you posted 🙂

It’s trash day, bitch. Haul it out!

For our buddy, Jingle – and the rest of you who may not be fans of “Porn pups”, we thought a post of some “real dudes” might be in order. Here’s a bunch of trashy fuckers to liven up your weekend 🙂
