Married at last! Gay pair make it official on 30th anniversary…

 

They raised children and have grandchildren. After 30 years, it is official. 

The wedding took place in Hayward, California, on the patio at The Turf Club, the second oldest gay bar in the San Francisco Bay Area. The White Horse is the oldest.   

Springtime flowers for an equinox joining.   

Is it a bear? Is it a dog? Could be both! Lots of critters and plenty of 15 Asociation men showing colors.   Fresh ink. Hey, Tiger!   Nutritious and delicious! Well, delicious, anyway.     Reception at the home of the old/new couple. Enjoying the reception. Congratulations!

We’ve been making memes. This is a Gayhighwaymeme. 

I know you like poke…



Inspired by our recent trip to Hawaii, I make poke. And a meme. Ahi, pico de gallo, cucumber, avocado, wasabi, fresh ginger, sake, rice and a pinch of code. 



Water bags for water boys?

How nice of The Ambassador in Waikiki to provide Eco-friendly collapsible water bottles for their guests. Also, it’s a good branding opportunity, with the corporate logo decorating each one. I’ve gotta wonder, though, what the design team was thinking in selecting bright yellow as the base color. I think it’s pretty funny, so I’m kind of glad they did, but I’d have gone with light blue. I do plan to re-use them filled with a different flavor of water at our annual summer party. Select guests will appreciate that. The Ex-Texan, who agrees with me that they look like medical sample collectors, or maybe catheter bags, models them in the hotel elevator. As always, this is our opinion, only. Urine may vary…
