Dude. Ain’t nothin’ hotter than a “tush bush”!

Our buddy “Jingle” has been asking for a “tush bush” post, and sending us pics. Here’s one of the e-mails we received from him:
“S’up?? Another GREAT pic for a possible future “Tush Bush” post!!
I don’t think I’m alone in my admiration and fascination for this completely natural and masculine feature some lucky men have!!
Love ya, John”
So, the first 8 pics in this post were sent to us by our #1 tush-bush lover. We love getting post suggestions and pics from members of our URD family and appreciate Jingle’s help with this one. Hope these bushy tushes do it for you guys!


We had a wonderful extended Labor Day weekend at the Lake. Spent hours and hours in the boat with lots of water skiing and wake boarding. Dub and Austin can now get up on water skis but Travon, Izzie and Kylie are still content to be wake boarders.
Cal and Alex had a big birthday party for Izzie on Saturday and, of course Jim and Carol were there with “crank ice cream and strawberry cake.” Their “new” cabin is awesome. Alex is something of a decorating genius and you’d never know it was the same place.
The floors are all grouted ceramic/vinyl composite tile – with lots of area rugs – and are beautiful. The (newly painted) steel kitchen cabinets match the “black stainless” appliances and the effect is spectacular. The only new furniture they bought was mattresses and “slip covers”. The rest came from estate sales, consignment stores and flea markets and you’d never know it wasn’t new. Izzie’s room is a soft blue color and Alex painted a mural on one wall. It’s puppies chasing butterflies in a meadow and if you look closely, you see that each puppy has a distinguishing feature. One has an artificial paw, one a missing ear and one a broken tail. She absolutely loves it.
We’re all a little sad that this will probably be our last weekend out on the water this year but we’ll still be spending lots of time at Table Rock throughout fall and winter.
One other thing. Jim and Carol helped so much in refurbishing the cabin and refused to take any money for all they did. Said they were just so happy to have wonderful new neighbors. So Scott and Denise surprised them with a new top-of-the-line 55″ Sony Bravia LED/HD t.v. and sound system. Ben and Alex spent several hours at their place – getting it hooked up and showing them how to use it. Ben said Carol probably filled up 15 or 20 recipe cards with notes on how to work everything, stream videos, etc. It was a nice thing for Scott and Denise to do. They’re great people!
Ben and the kids are back in school now and excited about the new year. It’s supposed to rain, so we’re going to clean house and put out the “fall decorations” next weekend. We’re very fortunate that “life is good” for us here in the Northland!
