I was asked what I was really looking for. The big answer is "interesting conversation". Hey, this is internet.. what else ya gonna get? I just might be a conversation slut here.

If we find we have a lot of common interests you would find me willing to travel a long way to meet face to face.

I'm male. (checks in shorts to confirm - yep, still there) If you are tall, red headed, green eyed, buxom... I'll notice you a long way away. Might get me into photographer mode and give me a bad case of itchy shutter finger. But that between the ears is what keeps my attention. The packaging is a bit irrelavent.

I see D/s as a study of intense sensation. My goal as a learning dominant is to play a symphony of sensation on a submissive doing justice to the fine instrument that she is. Technique may change and vary as I learn, but the intent will remain.

I tend to say what I mean. An offer of "coffee and conversation" or "dinner and conversation" is just that. It means there is something interesting in you and I would like to know more. No hidden meanings. No hidden agendas as in trolling for playtime.

I have a wildly eclectic taste in music. Long term companions must tolerate bagpipes.

I play in the SCA on occasion. I've been sighted wearing a kilt.

Photography is a serious hobby with me. If you are around me and don't want your picture taken, consider wearing a chadoor.

I ride a large motorcycle. If you have your own helmet you may find yourself invited for a ride. I consider running straight pipes a childish screaming to the world "I have a great big tonker!" I prefer quiet, comfortable, and fast. If you are a Harley bigot, you don't get to ride with me.

I read voraciously.

I'm a tech head and find gadgets fascinating.

I have a taste for British humor. Terry Pratchett's writing can have me laughing until I gasp for breath.

If you can believe it from this prattle, I'm shy about blowing my own horn. I'm more tossing out menu items to see if anyone finds an interesting dish.

If anything strikes your interest. Feel free to strike up a conversation.

Back at an outage.
I hate having to take people's underwear.

2/7/2018 10:01:04 PM
The things you find in the deep dark corners of the net... mutant European crawfish are reproducing parthenogenically.  It was misreported as all female crayfish are cloning themselves.  Ummmm, there is a difference guys. 

I should send a link of that article to that presenter ranter on Infowars that gets so upset about hormones turning the frogs gay.

5/10/2017 2:40:45 AM
   A decade ago I had a fiance.  Her 15 year old son murdered her.
   Now the kid is out of prison and wanting to contact me via Facebook.

A real WTF moment.

4/19/2017 9:47:24 PM
Getting a "new start" is really taking a step backwards.  You need to move up not start over.

4/13/2017 8:02:08 PM
Last night I dreamed of getting a great Pyrenees puppy.  Why?  Good friggin' question.  I had a GF bring one into the household once upon a time.  We had a four foot fence around the front yard.  When the pup was full grown, he didn't jump the fence.  He stepped over the fence.

I just may be missing the dog that used to travel with me.

A young couple converted the property around their house into an RV park.  No fancy amenities.  Reasonable lot rent.
Luling RV Park is on my recommended list for a place to park the RV in the greater New Orleans area.

First day at the Waterford 3 outage.  The local grocery has good Andouille and their deli makes a killer Crawfish Pie (take out dinner tonight)

For tonight at least, it's all good.

Considering relationships...
I don't want my cake and eat it too; I want to totally consume my strudel.  I want the fruity and nutty inside that cake will never have.
Markers of feminine perfection in my internal universe.
> Knows what wakame is and would be willing to experiment on preparation.
> Isn't scared of a playlist that segues from Nightwish to Tiffany to Chieftains.
> Doesn't consider the mechanics of life that any human creature can do some sort of special award winning performance.  Shoot, I was 19 before I found out that EVERYONE didn't know hot to do laundry, clean a house, cook a meal, mow grass, and trim bushes.
>  States preferences.  Trust me, little is more frustration making than dealing with hidden preferences that only get stated in passive aggressive rejection.
>  Considers being wrapped around a lover reading a book to be quality time.
>  Willing to try new things.  So few want to try anything new.
>  Shares enough interests that doing things together is not a study in grudgingly supporting a relationship.

Note: no mention of sexual.  Your strudel can't be ALL icing.

Busy times getting ready for the next contract.  It has been a while since I was in the New Orleans area.  Time to visit the relatives in the area there.

3/4/2017 2:44:42 PM
9 days without a break. Twelve hour shifts are a young man's game. St. Francisville is the same dichotomy of elegant and boondocks it always was. Just a few more days to go.

2/23/2017 4:12:26 PM
60th birthday. I've actually survived.

2/16/2017 1:11:39 PM
Louisiana... another job.

In a week I hit 60.  Now, the question is whether to don black and cry in my beer over it or celebrate actually surviving for six decades.

11/1/2016 7:35:04 PM
Done with New Jersey and visiting relatives in Virginia. 
They should give a delay discount with the construction work on the Bay Bridge Tunnel.

10/31/2016 5:55:42 AM
Live solo segueing into a great song...  Sometimes a song will speak to you no matter the language of the tune.  Wagakki Band

The Shimsen always hits me as Nippon Banjo.   And banjo always has me thinking of John McCuen and Joe Bethancort.  John McCuen classical solo...

If I were a big dollar promoter; one thing I'd like to arrange would be a genera bending cover of Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's "Miner's Night Out" done by Wagakki Band with John McCuen and Lindsey Stirling sitting in.  I think a mix of J-Rock, Hip Hop violin, and classic country would be very interesting.

10/28/2016 8:26:26 AM
Most evil Halloween treat ever... chocolate covered Brussels sprouts.

10/28/2016 8:19:57 AM
I'm done with the project in New Jersey .. mischief managed.

Now trying to get accustomed to being awake in daylight.   Some new songs for the favorites list....

Heard at work today....

"That girl I was talking to at the bar told me she was collard.  I thought she worked at a vegetable stand."
 Sometimes you shake your head and keep walking.

10/7/2016 3:19:20 PM
In Carney's Point, New Jersey.  A bit over a week into the job. 
  The first day was quite a bit stressful.  Girl in a hurry tried to pass my large pickup truck on the right as I was turning into a gas station.  Sheesh, her tiny hybrid drove away but she bounced off my tire so hard it broke both tie rods on the steering.
    BTW, a Hyundai Santa Fe drives well but the bloody seats are NOT designed to be comfortable with someone over six foot.  The damnable headrest forces the head forward into a really awkward posture.
    I'm told I need to go to Cowtown this weekend.  Hmmm, ok.  Not doing anything special so I may.

3/26/2016 4:15:03 PM
One more week then back to the U.S.

3/9/2016 8:08:35 PM
One of my co-workers emigrated from Pakistan about 3 years ago.  Cultural differences occasionally are good for a bit of humor.

Today, S. was playing around with a new smart phone.  In scoping out the calendar funtion; he pauses and taps me on the arm, "What is it about the 25th that makes it a good day?"  Puzzled, I ask to see his phone... March 25th "Good Friday"

This moved into a good discussion of what are traditional Christian holidays, and more pertinent, which holidays are paid holidays for us under our contract.

I've traveled a lot in my life.  What I find is that the average person, no matter the culture, is someone you would like to be around.  It is when you get into fanaticism and rabid religious and political motives that a culture comes across as toxic.

2/21/2016 10:58:59 AM
Sometimes a different take on something one is thoroughly familiar with is totally refreshing.

11/25/2015 7:08:08 PM
Ok, at work today.
A fellow made a very poor decision and we ended up with a contaminated skid steer and a 4x4 that got stuck in contaminated mud.  We start making preparations to decontaminate the equipment.

What does the supervisor say?

"We don't want to put those in the decontamination facility.  We could get the decon pad contaminated"

That thunderclap in Port Hope this afternoon was my face palm.  The rhythmic thumping that followed was me banging my hard hat on the roll bar of my work vehicle.

9/16/2015 5:55:47 PM
First week on a new project in Port Hope, Ontario.
Follow the bouncing tech...

8/4/2015 7:08:58 PM
I think I have an addition to my bucket list

7/6/2015 4:18:08 PM
I need to find someone to kidnap for coffee and conversation.

6/24/2015 1:59:24 PM
I've never been run over by a Chipmunk.  I've never heard of being run over by a Chipmunk.
Two chipmunks in a running battle came right in the truck bay door, fur flying.

One chasing the other they ran right up my leg and vaulted off my shoulder to land, bouncing, on the scrap metal bin.

Off they were again running and fighting right back out the door.

5/11/2015 10:38:25 AM
Made it to Chalk River, Ontario. Now to find a place to stay instead of a crappy hotel.

4/19/2015 12:55:01 AM
Off to Canada again in May.  Sigh, I hate looking for a place to rent.

3/27/2015 10:19:15 PM
Do you really have to be looking for something to be on this site? <grin>

What I expect to find on the internet is interesting conversation.  Looking for "the one" on an internet website always truck me as taking a shopping list for a gourmet meal to a convenience store.  So, what I'm looking for is interesting conversation.

Now if you are interested in traveling the country in an RV with a kinky old fart; I could sure use some company when out on the road.  But, not advertising for resumes. <grin>

3/27/2015 8:47:10 PM
I get to head home on April Fool's day.  Hmm, is that significant?
Finishing up in Kansas.  Where to next?  Not sure yet.

3/13/2015 6:59:22 AM
What am I up to.. besides six foot and no good, ask!

2/28/2015 5:06:43 AM
First night off since rolling to night shift.  I think I may be the only person awake for 25 miles around.

2/13/2015 7:06:54 PM
I've had the urge to move out of the city for a while.  The only question is where to move to.  The idea is to move TO something instead of just away from a crowded area with failing infrastructure.

2/6/2015 9:26:43 PM
  Very schizo weather.  Yesterday was 6 degrees at noon and today it was 71.  Warp drive from sweater and parka to a t-shirt.
  Tomorrow... exploring rural Kansas.  Anyone have any suggestions?

1/28/2015 3:42:33 PM
Rural Kansas for the spring.  Time to see what devilment I can find.

11/11/2014 12:50:11 PM
Cuisine from the weird side. I found bacon marmelade.

10/20/2014 4:35:52 PM
Wearing the kilt only makes you a cross dresser if you include lace panties... From a Scots teamster... love that line.

10/15/2014 12:49:39 PM
Good crossover cuisine found in a resturant. Canada version of Carolina barbecue: Pulled Pork Poutine

Monitoring horizontal drilling. If I had a splooging fetish; all this drilling mud might be exciting.

9/19/2014 11:04:23 AM
Anothee thought from work I dare not share with co-workers. These pencil thin meter long fiberglass marker poles would be devilish for a caning.

8/29/2014 2:41:50 PM
What a mad scramble.
2pm last Friday I'm informed I have to be in Port Hope on Monday.  sheesh

Now for a 3 day weekend in a new town.

6/30/2014 5:14:55 AM
Just ruminating on the "Magic of Marketing".

A "cup" when used as a unit of measure is always 7 ounces in the english system.  Unless you are talking coffee pots then it is 6 ounces.  How is this transformation done, the Magic of Marketing.

A product labeled "100% All Natural" has an ingredients list of
congealed cottonseed oil
cheese flavoring
orange coloring.
How did this become all natural?

Ok, today marks three weeks on the Canadian side of the border. 

Now, what does a yank do with a four day weekend for Canada Day?

6/22/2014 6:02:01 PM
Interesting dealing with the mental speed bumps you get with a new culture to acclimate to.  Plenty of humorous WTF moments.  Like the big one I had Friday... WTF?? Black squirrels?

6/15/2014 5:19:34 PM
Deep River, Ontario.  I actually get to start work tomorrow.

6/6/2014 6:50:48 PM

Had a "Farmer's Daughter" for dinner.

Yes, dirty minded ones, that is a locally brewed beer in Pembroke Ontario. <evil grin>

6/4/2014 8:49:09 PM

Crossing into Ontario tomorrow.

I need to be in a circus with all the hoops I've had to jump through this last month.

6/2/2014 12:42:49 PM

The kid's wedding was fantastic.

But, gad, after all the rigamarole to get things set up to be here I'm wiped.

For anyone who wrote in the last couple of weeks, I'll catch up once I get landed in Canada.

4/12/2014 2:50:17 PM
Some days I get paid to be wrapped in plastic. Do you think some would be jealous?

4/11/2014 9:24:17 AM
After a certain age; competance is its own brand of sexy.

4/6/2014 11:55:48 AM

An acquaintance from here has been asking about my work.  Since the message boards have self destructed I'll share a humorous anecdote here.


Now, to the Alligator in the Reactor Containment....


It was 1993 at the Waterford 3 power plant on the west bank of the Mississippi, a bit upstream from New Orleans.  Now, ground level at that power plant is 11 feet below sea level.  You can stand outside and look up to the large ships going down the Mississippi.


A tropical storm had barreled through and there was about 2 feet of water in areas of the storage yard full of conex boxes (or Sea-Land containers if you prefer).  The polar crane (huge crane inside the reactor containment building) was down and repairs underway.  Not a lot of other work was going on with the crane down.  My crew was doing two hours in, two hours out, to monitor robotic testing of equipment.


I'm out having a snack around 2am and hear "Sheeeeeiiiiitt, y'all gotta see this".  So, everyone is looking at the cctv image of the equipment hatch to the containment building.  You see the female RP tech inside the contaminated area leaning on the boundary flirting with the young security guard on the clean side.


Here comes a little nutria shagging ass up the ramp followed by a 3 foot long alligator hell bent on nutria dinner and they blow past both people at the entrance ... they never noticed until we called on the radio.


Security called out an alert and it took about 3 hours to corner the alligator with a catch pole.  But, that damned nutria was too fast.  We had security guards armed with wrist rocket slingshots prowling the lower levels of the containment building for three days.


I was on the monitoring desk in the basement of containment when the nutria was caught.. sorta.  I hear this loud "Oh Shit" and a smack, scrabble, and splash.  I call in I'll be away from the monitors (no personnel on the platform where the high risk was so I could walk away for a minute).


Bill had been mopping the floor of the basement and, coming around a corner, came face to face with that nutria.  I don't know if it was a good golf swing or not but he knocked that nutria about 12 yards to slide into the basement sump.  I got there as he had a scaffold pole yelling and keeping the nutria from climbing out on the pipes.


We ended up coming out with a nutria in a 5 gallon bucket with appropriate radioactive material markings and tags.


I'll never forget the RPMs (Radiation Protection Manager) expression when we presented him with a bedraggled but alive nutria reading 12 mRem/hr from its swim in the sump.  (Sump.. all the nasty crap ends up draining to the sump then it pumped out to a treatment system)


Well, that is the tale of the nutria and the alligator in containment.



4/1/2014 4:12:02 PM
Critter crazy morning. First an opossum doesn't want me gettin in the truck to leave for work then a skunk doesn't want me gettin out when I did get to work. Only three minutes late...

3/28/2014 4:08:36 PM

Glen Rose, Texas looks to be an interesting town.

Hopefully I'll have some time to explore the area while I'm here.


Something about a "Dinosaur Tracks State Park" has my shutter finger itching.

12/30/2013 11:32:20 AM

I've been updating the emergency kits... yes, plural, house two cars and the one that goes camping. While going through tossing oudated bandages and pharmaceuticals I noted that the supply of matches was quite degraded over time. (every try to strike a match and the head fell apart from years of humid storage).

So, here I am in the grocery among the charcoal looking for standard "kitchen matches" and all I see are the "safety matches" that require a red phosphorous strip on the box that never works past ten uses. I asked where the strike anywhere matches were and was told that they are "illegal" in this country now. WTF???

Soooo, I go off on a search for when this happened. It didn't happen. Since 2008, strike anywhere matches are required to be shipped as "dangerous goods" with the appropriate UN code and shipped in a vehicle licensed for hazmat carriage. But, most of the major grocery chains have decided they will not stock strike anywhere matches because the red phosphorous in the heads can be used as an ingredient for meth production. So, since I can find them at the grocery any more, where to get them?

The sporting goods shops will sell them to you under the Coghlan's brand name for about $6 for a box of 20? WTF, a box of matches used to be so cheap they were given away with advertising on them? And, strike anywhere matches are cheaper to produce than safety matches.

I find "standard kitchen matches" on a major online retailer for, dig this, $41.00 for a box of 200. Someone is milking the misconception that standard matches are illegal.

Finally, eBay to the rescue. $1.85 for a box of standard kitchen matches with $3 and change for shipping. (HAZMAT Shipping, ya know) I ended up ordering 10 boxes of standard matches in the pocket size for $3.85 with $5 shipping. Problem solved on the matches.

A final giggle is that the Diamond match company markets their standard matches as "green" and even dyes the phosphorous on the heads green. How are they green? The sticks are made from Minnesota aspen trees, a renewable resource. <giggle>

Anyway, I thought I'd share a bit of modern total silliness that ranks right up there with waterless hand cleaner. (It is flammable, dries the hands, and is only a third as effective as using plain soap and water according to the WHO and CDC)

Lair of the White Worm...


  I really enjoyed this campy B movie of the 80s but I didn't realize until I ran across the Baen Books release of the title that the original had been written by Bram Stoker of "Dracula" fame.  I may have to read the original but I truly doubt the movie version was  anything like it.

Heard at work: What kind of bees make milk? Boobies of course.

3/19/2013 7:39:46 PM

Good deal, I have the day off for Ostara.

I'll have to do some celebrating.

Favorite humor line for the week:

  I won't say I did bad things last night but Satan woke up on my couch and refuses to make eye contact.

8/6/2012 7:50:05 PM

Just finished an interesting movie, "Walk All Over Me".


The heroine is a novice dominatrix.  Cute funny and worth watching.

Evil thought for the week. At your next party serve IED Cocktails. Freeze Mentos into the center of ice cubes. Use for any type of carbonated drinks. Take bets on whose drink explodes first.

5/11/2012 11:01:27 AM

I've noted, in all the advertisements that hit my email inbox, that the majority of "Mother's Day Specials" contain some version of an obnoxious color of pink.


What is it with PINK? 


I always associate pink with pre-teen girls who "squeeee" at a frequency and decibel level guaranteed to make males wince and want to run and hide.

2/5/2012 11:55:37 AM

The creator was a practical joker.... or....


Testosterone builds up in humans while sleeping.  So, males are aroused in the morning and females have little interest on the whole.


Men reach sexual peak around age 19 and women reach their sexual peak in their 30s.


I think Loki, Coyote, and Kokopele formed and LLC and got the subcontract for sexualty.

2/3/2012 6:11:43 AM

Have you ever waked with a near overwhelming urge to pounce on someone?


12/15/2011 6:15:24 PM

What a week... exploding motorcycle tires, rail cars with holes in them, and Christmas plans flip flopping daily.


Would the family excommunicate me if I told them I was going to have Christmas in Aruba?

11/6/2011 7:35:49 PM

Ok.. some things you just have to shake the head at and giggle...


Want a penis painting?

Tropical Storm is making Mississippi into "Squishland".


So playing WoW and watching the rain with my girl.

Neshoba County Fair


Worth checking out for the novelty of the last fair of its kind left.

5/16/2011 10:49:53 AM

Home again and settling in.

5/5/2011 9:01:10 AM

Whew... three months of 72 hour weeks.

Done with the spring contracts and not to do something about the case of PMS I've developed... Parked Motorcycle Syndrome

3/26/2011 7:14:46 PM

Made it to New Orleans.  Time to settle in and get ready for another contract.

3/22/2011 11:56:28 AM

Gulf Wars was a blast...


Now to pack for New Orleans..

3/10/2011 8:23:25 PM

Home again.. time to pack.

3/8/2011 8:04:04 PM

Done with the job early.  Packing to leave Arkansas...


WhoooHooo.... I get to go to Gulf Wars!

Ah, travel.  Who would want to travel several months of the year?  Sometimes I wish for a trailer slave to travel with me.  But, where to find one who would like such a journey?


Ok, I need to clarify.. I am NOT taking applications for a traveling trailer slave.  I put up the above comment as a bit of dry humor.  If you have something interesting to say about mutual interests, please message me.  I had no clue that I would get requests for bus/plane fair when I posted that and I don't intend to bring an indigent stranger into my life.  sheesh?

2/9/2011 12:16:23 PM

At 5:30 am, light flurries.  Noon, the snow is up to my knees.  Since Russellville has nada for snow removal, I think I'm snowed in for two days.

2/8/2011 6:44:17 PM

A total of exactly 48 hours to travel 500 miles and shift from being up all night to being up at 4am for work.  Not quite enough time.


Gad, Russellville is supposed to be four degrees tomorrow night.  I need a bedwarmer.

2/2/2011 4:50:40 PM

The vagaries of being a Road Whore... a half derogatory half humorous name for the high tech migrant labor force that keeps the infrastructure of our country going.  The big unions call them "travelers" and charge them dues but give them little or no representation.


A nuclear power plant has abut 600 employees the year around.  When one is shut down for maintenance and refueling, 1500-2000 workers are brought in for the 4-6 weeks it takes for repair and refueling.  These contract workers are working, on the average, 72 hours a week until the job is done.


At the moment, this is what I do.  I work over 2000 hours a year (what a person works at an 8 hour a day, five day a week, 50 week a year job) but do it in 5-7 months and have a layoff for the summer.


I've been working 6pm to 6am six days a week for a month.  I get my layoff from this contract at 6am on the 7th of February then have to report in, two states away, at 6am on the 9th.  Such is my life. <grin>


If I'm working near you and offer dinner and conversation... don't read more into it.  I'm really, truly looking for conversation that is not work related.  Anything more will be serendipity and chemistry.

1/8/2011 3:52:28 PM

Back working on the road.  Hello Baton Rouge and St. Francisville.

12/13/2010 8:02:30 AM

After a shopping trip, my girl and I had a discussion about the most obnoxious outfit that could be found.  I think we hit it.


Pink camo mini skirt and matching midriff top.

Hot pink rabbit fur jacket.

Hot pink paisley rubber boots.


And, yes, we saw people wearing these items if not all on the same person.

11/30/2010 9:47:54 AM

Thanksgiving weekend at the Louisiana Renaissance Festival was a blast.


But, good to be home.

11/24/2010 1:32:26 PM

I survived the fall outage season.  It is good to get home.  I was getting motorcycle withdrawals.

Now, to do something fun.  Thanksgiving weekend at the Louisiana Renaissance Festival.

10/27/2010 7:33:08 AM

In Athens, Alabama.  Founded by John Coffee.
For those not history buffs, John Coffee was a "character" from back in the Andrew Jackson era of our country.  Some good tales from his history.

Another stop on the outage road for the fall.

In December I need to find a model for a bit of a fetish photo shoot dealing with a full zentai suit and some shibari.  Shoot me a line of you are interested.

9/14/2010 9:49:00 AM
How not to get picked for a jury.

When the defence attorney, during voir dire questioning, asks "Who doesn't like lawyers?"; wave your hand very vigorously.

Not picked for the jury.  Done with my obligation for jury duty.

9/10/2010 10:04:54 AM
Getting ready for Celtic Fest.  And wearing a Kilt to the highland games DOES NOT count as cross dressing. ... grin

7/29/2010 9:20:11 PM
Back from the Neshoba County Fair...

Now, Neshoba Chic this year includes floral pattern rubber boots.

7/24/2010 10:00:46 AM
Home from Florida.
Too long a drive coming back.

7/18/2010 7:45:40 AM
Made it to Florida.
Now to explore the old stompin' grounds I haven't seen in a decade.

7/17/2010 5:18:31 AM
Off to Florida...

7/10/2010 3:34:01 PM
A day of cleaning out the family cabin at the Neshoba County Fairgrounds.
Whoof.. a hot day of scrubbing.... 

7/7/2010 10:13:24 AM

Whoof... I'm avoiding Houston most certainly after last Friday.  Over 3 hours to get from one side to the other on a run to San Antonio.

I have a sense that the concept of "I have four wheel drive so I'm bullet proof" had something to do with the multiple wrecks during a torrential downpour.

Glad to be home again,

3/19/2010 5:11:00 PM
I'm off to Phoenix... currently parked in the desert of west Texas.

3/12/2010 11:54:30 AM
Off to Gulf Wars then out to Phoenix for work.

Back home some time in May.

12/15/2009 6:24:26 PM
Glad to be home for a while.

I enjoy the traveling, but sometimes it is best to prop the feet up.


12/11/2009 8:41:18 AM
Just some Yule Season notes...


Ø  A sub hanging up a cat suit body stocking could be considered guilty of bratty begging.


Ø  A coupon good for “one free flogging” lacks forethought an planning  in the gift department


Ø  “Icicle” floggers just don’t do anything for anyone unless connected with a violet wand.


Ø  No fire play within fifteen feet of the tree.


Ø  Sleigh bells….  Pony play….  Might have something there


Ø  Asking to try the candles for “heat and feel” gets you weird looks.


Ø  “wax play” with meltable chocolate might just work… may need a bit of research and experimentation


Ø  Wearing a zentai hood for warmth scares the beejezus out of kids when they see what looks like an empty helmet … on motorcycle at a stoplight (love it!)


Ø  Hanging stockings on a St. Andrew’s cross somehow just looks wrong.


Ø  Thigh high socks … got to get em on the list for the subbie…  cold feet can spoil the mood


Ø  Has anyone ever done a “submissive decorating party” in lieu of a “tree trimming party”?

12/8/2009 11:55:25 AM
Grey in San Antonio...

My girl is having a good time visiting her kids and grandkids.

12/4/2009 3:59:27 PM
Snow in Beumont, Texas.

The drivers in I-10 seem to be saying, "I gots me a big truck and ah'm bulletproof"

Me, I'm getting out of the way.  I'll continue on to San Antonio in the morning.l

12/1/2009 10:34:36 AM
Cracked tooth and getting a root canal.  What a fun way to spend a Tuesday.

And surgery tomorrow on the dog and on me.  Wheeeeee, a fun week.

11/26/2009 12:25:52 PM
Good to be home.  Dinner is almost ready.

11/25/2009 12:26:12 PM
Packing to leave NOLA.  Job done, time for fun.

11/20/2009 6:29:19 AM
Wouldn't it be approprate if the Mustang ranch had a view of the Himalayans?

Tongue firmly in cheek.
It's punday isn't it?

10/30/2009 1:54:06 PM
I think I have finally discovered a hard limit. I WILL NOT be seen in public with anyone wearing pink camouflage and shan't spend more time in the company of anyone dressed that way as it takes to politely depart for the horizon. I almost gagged at the trio dressed thusly at Academy Sports.

10/26/2009 7:51:45 PM
You bring a thousand people into a workplace from all over the country and a few from overseas.. the viruses get passed around.

Dang it, I hate getting a bug that keeps me out of work.

10/15/2009 6:59:54 PM
Wow, a three day weekend in New Orleans.  Now, what to do with it??

10/13/2009 4:16:38 PM
All done in St. Francisville.  Now settled down in New Orleans.  Starting the next contract tomorrow.

I had forgotten how muggy it is here.  By the time the RV was set up I felt like I had been in a sweat lodge for an hour.

9/20/2009 3:15:05 AM
I madei to the RV park in St. Francisville, Louisiana a bit before dark last night.

An interesting half day at home before I had to head out to the next job.

New Orleans after this one.

9/12/2009 6:44:07 AM
On more week in Arkansas then off to St. Francisville, Louisiana

8/13/2009 7:38:06 PM
Russellville, Arkansas

Warning.. the freeway signs in Little Rock are confusing if you are just headed through on I-40.

Dogs woke me at 2am.  Left home at noon.  Arrived 9pm...

Can you say "zombie"????

8/10/2009 4:30:47 PM
Time to hit the road again.  Next stop, Russellville Arkansas.

Then, St. Francisville Louisiaina then down to the New Orleans area.

Wave if you see me....

7/26/2009 10:49:53 AM

Mercedes Lackey coined the term "Whoopee Witch" in one of her Diana Tregarde stories (if memory serves, it was in one of the "Chicks in Chainmail anthologies).  Have you ever known one?


            A witch meditates on a ritual.  A whoopee witch scans the instructions for a ritual while watching her soaps.


            A witch meticulously gathers the ingredients she needs.  A whoopee witch peruses a list and grabs something similar out of the spice cabinet.


            A witch will meticulously observe the phase of the moon for a spell.  A whoopee witch sets the clock on her computer to the appropriate time of the month before printing out the instructions she found on the internet group.


But, what of those little silly cantrips that work for the individual?


My memory mantra.. Sign of the cross muttering "spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch, is everything needed ready and to hand" 

5/26/2009 3:41:44 PM
Working to the sun breaks.

When you have daily thunderstorms, getting renovations and reorganizing a house is a real pain.  My girl, Karla, is a godsend.  I was really impressed with the painting she did while I was in Minnestota.

5/5/2009 4:31:22 AM
It is good to get home, even if Lynn did lock the dogs in the house instead of the kennel out back... Coming home to floors needing serious cleaning.
  Now, serious playtime.

4/30/2009 2:59:03 AM
The last day of the Minnesota job.  I'm ready to head South.  I wonder what is playing in Branson?  It may be time for a bit of holiday before going home.

4/5/2009 10:34:49 AM
Short handed project, snow, flooding... and people wonder why I rather drop off the radar when I'm working a job.

3/5/2009 2:10:58 PM
Minnesota is too bloody cold this time of year.  But, one has to go where the work is.

2/1/2009 9:12:45 AM
  The forever houseguest has their furniture out of my garage and living room.  Now, I can organize my place for my own taste once again.
  Fencing practice will be interesting as sore as I am at the moment.

1/27/2009 2:56:39 PM
A few more days adn my long term housguest will be gone.  It will be so wonderful to have a garage and living room again.

Room to remodel the playroom.. bwahahahahaha

1/12/2009 5:25:43 PM
An interesting time at Shadowcon.  And, the lady I've been seeing for several months and I have decided to make a go at a 24/7 relationship and will be moving in together in a month or so.

1/7/2009 5:56:01 PM
Home again... glad to be back in a warmer clime.

12/31/2008 8:48:11 PM
Interesting evening at a Poly social gathering at a local coffee shop here in Spokane, WA.

Another week in Washington then flying back to Mississippi.

12/25/2008 11:38:27 AM
Merry Christmas
I'm having a very white Christmas in Spokane.  Go check my Picasa site for pictures.

12/22/2008 11:38:17 AM
Finally made it to Spokane after the side trip to Phoenix.  

Tons of snow....

12/10/2008 8:27:27 AM
Seen on a sign hanging on the rump of a bagpiper last weekend:

What is worn under the kilt?  Lipstick.  And on a good day, multiple shades.

12/9/2008 7:12:44 AM
A lot of changes the last week.

My switch roomate found her "one" and took off for Texas.  Now, what am I going to do when I have to go back on the road again.  I guess I should advertise a room to rent on craigslist.

The relationship that seemed to be going so well blew up.

I had a wonderful weekend with vanilla friends doing a couple of days at the Louisiana Renaissance Faire.  Pics at my picasaweb site. (if you know me, you have the url somewhere)

Now, time to quit playing ont he net and get to work ont he next project.

11/11/2008 10:01:46 AM
Interesting lifestyle party last Saturday.  Learned a lot this past weekend. 

11/1/2008 10:50:26 PM
Finally made it home at 11pm on the 1st.  Some interesting times on the way.
797 miles in one day is too much. As soon as the energy drinks I guzzled wear off, I'll be down for a week I think. 

10/26/2008 6:40:11 PM
Bloody damnable fliberdigibbets...

Got done, trying to get ready to go.  Found a drawer support broken, stayed a day to fix before leaving.

Now, running fever, sore throat, can't talk, and wet snow is blowing in with a high wind.

Anyone want to come help drive from Minnesota to Mississippi?

10/24/2008 5:41:09 AM
The job is done.  Now heading south from Minnesota.  Warm weather, here I come.

10/14/2008 7:43:04 PM
Ok, my warped out of the box brain is seeing other uses for things again.  More "bondage on a budget".... 

Two more weeks in Red Wing, Minnesota.  Then, headed south.  Gad, I need some play time after 6 weeks of 72 hours a week.

8/30/2008 3:31:36 PM
Red Wing, Minnesota.  It looks like an interesting town.

8/22/2008 8:26:56 PM
Whew... finally back in Jackson.

Now, time to get ready to head for Minnesota.

8/19/2008 1:38:38 PM
I'm going to lay over for a day and look for aliens; or at least a Wal-Mart.

Rosewell, New Mexico... Posted some good pics on my picasa site last night.  Wonderful "Fire in the Sky" sunset night before last.

I think I'll do laundry and groceries and go see the Alien Encounter museum.  After seven days of driving, I need a break.


8/17/2008 1:36:39 PM
Amazing going from one climate to another.

Got up in the borders of the Mojave desert and it was pushing 100 at 8am.

Here I am eating lunch after crossing the divide and there are trees and it is 74.

8/13/2008 3:11:35 PM
Day #2 pictures have been posted.

8/11/2008 10:33:15 PM
I'm doing a photo log of my trip.  It is on my picasa site with google.

I'd post a url but CM doesn't like that.

Message me if you need exact directions to it.

8/9/2008 10:16:54 PM
I decided to take the long way home.

Route is on picture number 8 that I uploaded.

Wave as I go by.

8/3/2008 1:56:33 PM
Emotional pain...

Emotional pain will pass leaving no outward signs.

But, like a swallowed golf ball, it hurts like hell while passing.

7/31/2008 12:12:14 PM

I no longer own a house in Washington.  Now, all I have to do is get rid of this pickup truck and I'm outta here.

Anyone need a truck?

7/24/2008 6:15:17 PM
Ok, if you are from Ghana or any African country; I'm highly skeptical when you contact me.  Especially when I'm old enough to be your father.

Nuff said!

7/19/2008 3:27:26 PM
Odd first thoughts

I received one of thos stupid chain surveys from a friend.  The first question was, "Do you have anything expired in your refrigerator".

My mind must be playiing musical chairs with paradigms today.  The first thought was "All the meat is expired as I would not be cruel enough to store live animals in the fridge."

7/18/2008 7:09:53 PM
Hmmm, routing.

If I take the southern route, I can visit and old friend in Alameda on the way.

Going through Bakersfield, Phoenix, El Paso, Dallas.

I haven't been that route since 1999.

7/17/2008 9:01:06 AM
One thing I learned in high school was not to teach the class clown how to make thermite unless you want the gym doors welded shut during a pep rally... with everyone inside.

The things some people will do to get out of classes.

7/16/2008 5:55:05 PM
  Went by Harbor Freight Tools.

  Suddenly stopped and had to look closer.

  "Hang Straps.  36inches Velcro Closure.  Rated for 100lbs per strap"

  Ok, bondage on a budget item there.  These will come in handy.   And, I can hang the bicycle from the garage rafter when not hanging up something more interesting.

  Just tucked four of em in the box under the bed.  Wonder if I should put eye bolts on the corners of the bed frame?

7/13/2008 10:39:03 PM

Ok, does the name “Sookie Stackhouse” mean anything to you?


                Charlaine Harris does a bangup job with an offbeat series about a telepathic barmaid in rural Louisiana whose first boyfriend is a vampire and her boss is a were-collie.


                I got a look at a rush screener for “True Blood”, a made for HBO series that starts in September.  The same guys that did “Six Feet Under” are doing a good job of bringing the Sookie Stackhouse stories to the screen.


                I like offbeat.  I loved the early Laurell Hamilton before plot became a way to move from one sex scene to another.  Charlaine Harris spins a good yarn in the same spirit that Anita Blake had in the beginning.


In case anyone gives a hoot.


7/10/2008 1:33:28 PM
A silly thought.
I'll be driving cross country from Washington to Mississippi.
Anyone want to meet for coffee and conversation on the way?


7/2/2008 5:28:47 PM
Just a thought for the day:


7/1/2008 6:32:03 PM
Signed acceptance of an offer on the house this morning.  I hope that light at the end of the tunnel isn't a runaway Kenworth.

Now, if I can't sell the bloody pickup truck how am I going to get it back home.

Anyone up for a cross country road trip?

6/27/2008 9:02:34 AM
Back in Richland, WA now.  Time to take care of fixing up that house and get it saleable.

Anyone need a 1500 sq ft house on 1.75 acres with a few outbuildings to boot?

Yes, this is the one the ex GF trashed to the point it was a hazmat cleanup site.

Read something that got me thinking.

A line from a Victorian novel stated that the perfect age for a bride was half her husband's age plus three years.

Any 28 year old hardbodies want to travel around the country with a high tech contractor?


4/27/2008 7:08:19 AM
Finally made it back home last night.
Still dragging from the surgery.

4/18/2008 8:19:28 AM

Finished the job in Arkansas just in time for a ride to the hospital.  Stuck here recovering from surgery. <sigh>

3/29/2008 8:30:52 AM
I'm off the radar at the moment working long hours on a contract job in Arkansas.  Be back in Jackson in a couple of weeks then off to New Orleans for another job in mid April.

Just so everyone knows why I'm slow to answer messages lately.


2/15/2008 9:36:17 AM

The Cult of the Waif (a minor rant)

I've come to the conclusion there is a secret cult bent on taking
over the fashion industry in this country. In fact, they have been
quite successful so far. The deification of the emaciated
androgynous anorexic has become too rampant.

What brings me to this conclusion? Besides "fashion" magazines,
that is. Well, look at exclusionary importation practices.

Adidas, Reebok, and Nike shoes are made in Korea. They make them
in widths varying from extra narrow to 4E width. But, ask any shoe
store and they will tell you they only come in "average" width.

The lastest was a search for a fencing jacket that would fint my
nordic barrel chested frame. The U.S. importers of fencing equipment
would have us believe that the maximum size is a 42 to 44 for chest
size. Well, blimey, the manufacturer goes up to a 58.

Don't listen to the Cult of the Waif. Don't buy into the subtle
propaganda. Remember, "a perfect 10" originally referred to a dress
size and Marilynn Monroe (described as a "perfect size 10") would be
considered "fat" by the Cult of the Waif standards.

Oh, Walmart, Macey's, Sears, and Penny's... thou hast lost my
business for the simple fact that you carry nothing decent that fits
and it is by your choice.

This pegged my pun meter:

If you are a beautiful damsel in distress.

I will help you out of it.

2/1/2008 9:54:45 AM
  What are you looking for?  Ask first what you can reasonably expect to find.  The internet is a wonderful place to find interesting characters to talk to.  Not necessarily the kind of characters you want to invite for a holiday dinner with your family.

  What would be nice to find is a meeting of minds and a chemistry in real life that would lead to a 24/7 relationship.  I don't go expecting to find that on CM but serendipity happens.

  I don't do high drama.  If I say something that upsets you, let me know.  No tantrums needed.

  If you ask to meet me face to face; be sure you want to and can make it.  It is frustrating to get excuses once reservations have been made and money sent.

  I do consider the most interesting part of a person to be between the ears.  Talk to me of more than lifestyle.

1/25/2008 12:41:20 PM
For about half a year, the toilet in the main bathroom has been stopping up on occasion.  I hadn't been able to find anything to cause it.  Until today.

Today, I plunged it again and when I got the thing flowing and the water clear, there was something visible.  So, I fished it out.

One purple AA battery powered vibrator.  Humph!

May have to set rules for using vibrators in the bathroom. 

By the way, a six month submergence does flood a "waterproof" vibrator.

1/23/2008 4:16:42 PM
A "troll booth" in the SCA is jargon for where you have to stop and pay the fees for an event site.  A humorous story from an SCA mailing list.

If you don't want to advertise, you need something to bite on.

For example.. a true story from Darkwater in Trimaris...

The Troll had been relieved at the front gate. It was near dawn on a
Saturday. The newly released troll is walking back to the feast hall with
two inebriated gentlemen of his acquaintance.

From out of one tent, pitched away from most of the others,
are coming some horrid sounds that sound like muffled screams and skin
smacking together.

The two inebriated gentles plunked cross legged in front of
said tent. The tired but sober third shrugged and joined them in passing a

Once the sounds died down, it was a Spider Robinson.
Callahan's, moment of inebriated telepathy. As one the three chanted in
whiney "cartoon" voices..

Can weeee watch????

Can weeee take picures????

Can weeee participate????

Down comes the zipper of the tent front and out comes a
burly hand bearing a sword.. As at the same time a slim feminine hand tosses
out a Polaroid camera.

The three gentles, not being so gauche as to intrude into a
domestic argument, showed only heels and elbows as they returned to the fest
hall at a rapid rate of speed.

That couple from outkingdom taking an SCA journey for their
honeymoon will have a tale to tell the grandchildren.

1/23/2008 1:07:54 PM
If you have a Freudian slip does that make you a cross dresser?

1/17/2008 8:07:13 AM

Working on an odd idea for a photo shoot.

She will be wearing a complete converage black zentai suit.  Then application of tortoise shell shibari using brighly colored rope.
That should make for an interesting set of photos..... Brainstorming again

1/13/2008 10:26:37 PM

A good giggle if you want it.  the 2007 Darwin Awards are out.  CM won't let me post URLs so you have to google for it.  Stefan

Happy New Year....

  Waked at 3am by teen neighbors shooting off firecrackers.
  Tempting to break out the singletail for them.


12/26/2007 8:55:54 AM
Please note:  I am not in the business of selling pornographic pictures.  Don't even bother to ask.

  I have sold photos to newspapers and large format prints of particularly good landscape shots.  I no longer do wedding photography.  I have done portfolios for wannabe performers but require a sitting fee up front after being burned on payment.
But, please no more contacts wanting to see my "catalog".  <sheesh>

12/25/2007 1:27:28 PM

Merry Christmas

  And may you have a SCREAMING new year.   

12/23/2007 6:54:25 PM
The ex GF that I was having trouble evicting from my home in Washington was murdered last Thursday night. 

Look for the screen name merctech on myspace for details.

  Watching the snow fall and thinking it is time to head south....
Done with Washington, back to Mississippi

11/24/2007 1:14:35 PM
Finally made it to Washington.
Exhausted but the journey was fun.

Currently on the road. Staying the night at the Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo Reservation.

Wonderful art, close to the Grand Canyon south rim.  Excellent food.  The art deco tin ceiling in the dining room really caught my eye.  You don't see vintage archetecture like that much any more.

Went and got pictures of the sunset over the Grand Canyon last night

Pictures at my picasaweb site if you care to look

Two hillbillies walk into a bar. While having a shot of whiskey, they talk about their moonshine operation.

Suddenly, a woman at a nearby table, who is eating a sandwich, begins to cough. And, after a minute or so, it becomes apparent that she is in
real distress.

One of the hillbillies looks at her and says, 'Kin ya swallar?'

The woman shakes her head no.

Then he asks, 'Kin ya breathe?'

The woman begins to turn blue and shakes her head no.

The hillbilly walks over to the woman, lifts up her dress, yanks down her drawers and quickly gives her right butt cheek a lick with his
tongue. The woman is so shocked that she has a violent spasm and the obstruction flies out of her mouth. As she begins to breathe again, the
Hillbilly walks slowly back to the bar.

His partner says, 'Ya know, I'd heerd of that there 'Hind LickManeuver' but I ain't niver seed nobody do it!'

I'm at my first SCA event in.. not saying how long.
Willie went with me and was more popular than I was. (Willie is a dog, get your mind out of the gutter.)
Perhaps I should teach Willie to bow and introduce him as "William the Furry".

Willie looks like a golden retreiver but I think he is really a wench retreiver.  He seemed to make a beeline for the ladies in low cut bodices and give them his sad eyes until they were cuddling him.

Tired.. Willie is asleep already.

Survived Halloween on Bourbon Street.  Survived the Louisiana Renaissance Festival.
Finally home again for a while.

Saw something on Amazon earlier tonight.
"Complete Dummy's Guide to Paganism" and a "Complete Dummy's Guide to Wicca"

Where is the "Complete Dummy's Guide to BDSM"?  <facetious there>

Last night was interesting.  Went to the House of Shock (a  com website)

I agree with Good Morning America, the best haunted house I've ever seen.

Pain Tribe was doing a performance art piece there too.  (a dot net webiste if you want to google them)  An interesting show.

I don't think hanging from hooks piercing my flesh is for me.

Job is done in New Orleans.  Time for a bit of fun.  Voodoo Music Festival this weekend.  Halloween on Bourbon Street next week.  Louisiana Renaissance Festival the following weekend.  Then back to more mundane concerns.  If you spot me and mention where you saw me I'll buy you a beverage. <grin>

Off to New Orleans for a month.  Work then Halloween on Bourbon Street.

Could be interesting.

Two weeks back in Mississippi.  Starting to see some progress on organizing the new household.
I finally went to a munch.  Met some interesting people.
I got in touch with the local SCA group and met some more interesting people.
Actually thinking of building some armor and getting back into the fighting again.

Ran across an interesting movie, "Kinky Boots".  Wonderful humorous story based on a touch of reality.

In a warped humor mode,

Washington... dealing with a property trashed and unliveable.

I hate having to get lawyers involved in my business.

Just had to vent a minute.

Delays, delays,.... had a fender bender and have to wait for body work before heading for Washington.

BTW, if you need a house near Richland, Washington I can make you a deal. <grin>

I need to put 30 to several things in my quest to reclaim a life. Probate court should be done on the 30th.  Should have the last of my furniture moved by the end of July.

So much to do.....

Spending much too much time taking care of biz to be very social.  I want to be but a munch that starts at 10pm was just too much. <sigh>

Traveling again.... <sigh>
  Finished up in Louisiana.  Hanging around for a party in Baton Rouge this weekend then back to Jackson for a couple of weeks.
  Then, cross country to Washington.

  Anyone want a house in the desert near Richland, WA?

Tried to go to a local munch last night.  Found there were several tables in the resturant with groups of people there.  I couldn't figure out which one was the munch.  I may have figured it out but really had no clue.

  Considered going to each table and asking, "got rope?" but rejected the idea.

  The attitude I was in last night, I could not resist the choice for  dinner of the "Black & Blue Salad". <grin>

I've been asked a couple of times what I am looking for.  First and formost, some interesting and intelligent conversation.  If things come to more that is sheer serendipity.  I don't expect more from anything on the internet.

  Finally back in Mississippi after a month working in Arkansas.  Did a bit of a road trip, met some people face to face, explored the Ozarks a bit.  The last few days were a lot of driving but some good times.

  Ok, who wants to meet at Cups and discuss the whichness of the why?

I travel too bloody much.
I wonder if there is someone out there that would travel with me for several months out of the year.  Who knows what the future will bring.

Overheard at work....

"He has to drop his pants to count to eleven." 

Know anyone like that?
