Happy birthday, dear Larry. Happy birthday to you!

It’s Larry’s birthday… and we want to wish him good health and happiness today – and for years to come.
Larry is a champion. He’s one of our dearest, most loyal, most tolerant friends. He puts up with tattoos, piercings, facial hair and all manner of other things he doesn’t necessarily like, because he’s our friend… and he’s the ultimate good sport.
Larry. We hope these boys will make your birthday a little brighter. We’ve tried to make sure there are NO tattoos, NO piercings and NO facial hair in your birthday cake. Happy day, baby. We love you! xoxo David, Ben and Beto


Special thanks to Beto for sending us many of these pics. Beto knows exactly what “his mates” like – and we know Larry will love the pics Beto selected for him!

Dude. Check out these Asian bois!

Guys. This is interesting. According to ExactMetrics, UnrulyDude had all-time highs in “sessions” and “page views” last Thursday, April 16th. It’s encouraging that so many enjoy visiting the blog. David and I thank each of you for being part of UnrulyDude!


Hey, guys. It’s Ben. I want to tell you about something that happened last week. On Friday, I had a call from a guy who was my best bud in college. His name is “Chen” and he’s originally from Taiwan but currently lives in Australia. We were both education majors at Park College. Although he was a year ahead of me, we had several classes together and studied with each other a lot. We also hung out and played racquetball several times every week. We weren’t roommates but we did live in the same house just off campus. We were pretty much inseparable and a couple of guys in the house even accused us of being gay, even though absolutely nothing sexual ever happened between us.
Chen graduated and left Parkville and I hadn’t heard from him since – until last Friday. He said he found me through the Park alumni association who referred him to “Dr. C” who told him all about me, David and Dub, the Table Rock gang and our campus here at the lake. He thought it all sounded amazing.
Anyway, we talked for a long time and it was really good to hear from him. He teaches math in a secondary school in Australia and told me he has a boyfriend “Preston” who is also a teacher – and “is a bit more than a boyfriend.” They’re planning a trip to Missouri in July and I invited them to spend some time with us. I’m excited about seeing Chen again and meeting Preston. Chen is a beautiful person in every way. It’ll be great to see him again!

Happy birthday, Phil!

We wanted this post to be special because our friend Phil is a very special guy. He’s one of the medical professionals who keep us healthy – and take care of us when we’re not. Members of the medical profession (like teachers) typically aren’t paid as much as they should be… but they don’t do it for the money. They do it because they’re fundamentally good people who care about their fellow humans. They do it because they’re dedicated and value the right things in life. Thank you, Phil for all you do – including being a part of our URD family. We love you and wish you good health, love and every happiness on your birthday for for many years to come. xoxo David and Ben
Oh, Yeah. GO BENGALS!
