A Timely Classic
This morning on our way to Philly we had a stopover and as we landed at San Fransisco International SFO we had the honor of seeing United’s last 747 on the tarmac before it’s final farewell flight today from San Fransisco to Hawaii.
I love 747s and thankfully have flown several of them over the years. Godspeed my friend.
Then after arriving in Philly we, Fearsome & meself, had the greater honor of re-uniting with an old friend and meeting a new one face to face for the first time. It’s been a wonderful day.
Vincent’s opening shouldn’t be missed. “Humes” as he refers to our species, are rather frightening. However enjoy this Halloween classic and have your own spooktacular party!
Vincent Price – Monster Mash
Look what the better half surprised me with today…
It’s actually an early Christmas present but who could wait? I’ve already set up an appointment with my Verizon rep to go in and activate it at 10 am mañana.
Bette Midler – I Put a Spell on You
David S. Pumpkins
Nuthin’ more classic than them B-52s!

Whether it’s due to a busy schedule, simple laziness or an absolute loss of words, I’ve been short of actual written entries on this here blog thingy of recent. Today this Kilted Coaches video will just have to do.
Ok so this doesn’t qualify for a musical masterpiece, but it qualifies for a lot of fun!
A hit from my high school days. I can’t even fathom how many times this blared out of my car windows on a weekend night cruising about.
Cameo Shake Your Pants 1980
‘ cause I can do shit just like these three are and have a blast.
Fearsome started his day with a stop by “Vikings” for a quick photo shoot.
It’s almost here…
It’s been a long wait since that final day last year. Nerdvanna is almost upon us! This is gonna be good! You can check out the schedule of events HERE.
Any readers have a special request from the inside? Let me know via comments and let’s see what Fearsome can do.
It’s officially Pride weekend in here in beautiful sunny San Diego California!
Given we live in a state with three major cities, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco, Pride celebrations are spread out in order to allow celebrants the options to be able to celebrate more than once and not have to choose between. There are also celebrations on other weekends in various smaller, yet just as important, locations such as Long Beach and Palm Springs. Having our many California celebrations over numerous weekends also allows tourists from to catch a Pride celebration while traveling through California if they so desire.
My first ever Pride experience was in Seattle back in 1990. The city where I grew up didn’t have such a thing and my travels through east coast cities back in the 1980s never seemed to coincide with one. I haven’t missed a Pride since that first one in Seattle and my official relocation to the West coast.
For me Pride has so many more meanings that just being gay. Pride is love. Pride is joy. Pride is acceptance. Pride is understanding, forgiving, righteous, brotherhood, sisterhood, humanhood, sexuality, sexual identity, identity, political, non-political, peace, justice, black, white, brown, yellow, red, giving, gratitude, sharing, respect, service, caring…Pride is a place to just simply be yourself. Just be.
A tune from my dance floor days before that first ever Pride celebration surprised me on Sirius XM Studio 54 today. A tune that I had probably not heard since seeing Pamela Stanley perform it live during RSVP Cruise Lines 10th anniversary party in Puerto Vallarta back in 1996, which was probably about the 10th anniversary of the tune itself. A tune that seems perfectly appropriate to kick off another absolutely fabulous Pride 2017 weekend in lovely San Diego.
Happy Pride Y’all!
Any pair of beards that can enjoy life and share such beauty, certainly deserve a Beard of the day slot here on Fearsome Beard. Damn they are inspirational.
Summer childhood memories.
Punching holes in a metal lid for the glass relish jar that in which I would later imprison several unlucky ones.
Lightning bugs, as I called them, were always a summer highlight. Little did I realize the depth of their striking beauty.
We don’t have fireflies here in Southern California. While I do prefer my SoCal summer weather over the sweltering humidity of my native southeast, I sure do miss my mesmerizing little friends.
Whats one of your favorite summertime childhood memories?
…oh and Happy Summer Solstice 2017!
