Who Knows Where the Time Goes?

I know I will get in trouble for this.   But you know, it's all good.

I actually got approval for one of the pictures to be used when I did my Vegas blog post a week or two back.  David was good with it......the one we took in the casino.

He wasn't really briefed on the one that was taken 18 years ago.

Time is a harsh mistress.  Oddly enough I don't feel too much different than I did back then. I don't act a lot different either.  Looks are another matter. But as the Bangles once sang, "time time time....see what's become of me."   Ok, really it was Simon & Garfunkel first, but few people actually know that.

David tried to tell me we have known each other for 37 years, not 27.  While that would have been great, I would have been all of 10 when I met him.  He was always worse at math than I was - and trust me, that ain't good.

This picture was taken in Tijuana.  I'm sorry - but I my head looks like it could have been on Frankenstein's monster but with a worse hair-do.  No worries - in a few years from this snap, there'd be nothing on top anyways.  .....for either of us.  I was also beanpole thin. Maybe the black was just slimming.  Not a great look.

At least David looks good in his Jew-fro.

Fast forward two decades.  Oy.   

Nothing wrong with these two guys.  We might be balder, we might be greyer, we might not be slim jims anymore - fuck, unless your Bobby Sands or Karen Carpenter, who is thinner than 20 years ago?   At least we still have winning smiles and personalities.

And just because I'm mega-queer, and am preemtively making David feel better about the 1993 picture I posted without his permission, I am tossing a pic up here that his partner, Duck, took of me in Vegas.

The only way this picture could have been any more gay is if I had thrown my arms in the air and did a big "Ta-Da!" pose.   Which I actually think I did, but Duck didn't get it on camera.   Thank g-d!

Apparently from these photos we both became Asian somewhere along the way too, not sure how?

Always fun to see my Bobby, can't wait for next trip!

Is that a steampunk stiletto? How awesome is that if it is!

You TOTALLY should've "judy garlanded" that last picture. Being gay means it's ok to 'camp out' for fun occasionally.

I'm just sayin'...

Ahem. I am slimmer and in better shape now than 20 years ago. I had quite the pudge in the belly when I was an LSU student discovering the joys of Taco Bell. (they were just building them all over Baton Rouge at the time)
