Bear Week 2009 Provincetown !!

I'm a little disappointed...I really thought that listening to the same-sex partners of some in our military would have drawn a little more than only five comments....and that doesn't even indicate how many even checked it out......but, alas, I do understand....the time commitment, the lack of time in people's schedules, and the less than happy material to watch...but, again, I encourage you to do so.....it's amazing to listen to.

I'm doing my best to get over this cold/allergy/pneumonia/chest cough and congestion. It's been terrible but I'm in the middle of antibiotics and doing everything I can to make it better. And, of course, these sorts of things never come at a good time.....because we've been planning for this week for a very long time. We've been invited to spend Bear Week 2009 in Provincetown with the iBears in a house where 11 of us will be frolicking and cavorting. For a week. Neither of us have ever been to P-Town and neither of us are really bears. But we've been welcomed right into this circle of amazing friends and....so....WE GO! We leave on Thursday for 12 days away from home. First, we board this airplane for a flight to Newark:


Then, we sit for three hours when we'll be iPhoning and carrying on like crazy people during our layover. After that, we board this plane:


A quick flight to Albany will put us in the good care of these boys: And the next day we'll be headed to Providence, Rhode Island, where we'll join this group:

And from there, who knows. We're looking forward to a whole new experience in our lives. Whatever happens, it's all good. So, in spite of the fact that we'll have our laptops with us, I'm not sure how much blogging will go on this week. We're not home until the 20th....so I you may find me scarce around here until after that time.

31 hours...I'll never get pretty or thin enough in that time. BUT, I knew you were coming so I baked a cake...

Hope you have a great time - and that you feel better! I had the same thing - or something very similar - for two full weeks. Ugh.

Take pictures.

That's all I could think to say.

Take pictures.

The blood has rushed out of my brain.

Take. Pictures.

Behave yourself!!!! Or not. Alcohol cures everything.

I cannot even fathom having time to "blog" with the wonderful company and events the two (four) of you will all be entangled with!
Here's to everyone feeling at the top of their game and let the games begin!! ;)

P-Town is a good place to escape to right now, when we're all trying to deal with another 4 ( or 8 ! ) years of a homophobic President.
