It's that time again!! Time to do my best to embarrass myself by posting revealing pictures of myself and others in modes of undress. This one is pretty funny actually. It was taken a couple of years (and a few pounds) ago while DJ and I were vacationing in Panama City Beach. I laid out in the sun WAY TOO LONG, and began to look like a lobster. I apologize for the really bad seashell necklace, they were in style then (somewhat). Even with the horrible sunburn we still had a fantastic time. It's good to remember that week, especially with the temperature what it is today.
I also want to make mention of a fellow blogger and gay dad. I mention him today because he is the one the led me to Half~Nekkid Thursdays and now I've become a follower of him ever since.
Being a father is tough work, but adding the fact that you came out of the closet not only to the whole world, but to your own kids is much tougher, trust me I know! But ScottyBoi writes with such candor and honesty, he has become my hero. I can not imagine trying to raise my own kids by myself or even with DJ. If I had to, I most definitely would, but it would most difficult. Thank goodness that my kids have a great mother who has done a fantastic job with them, and still allows me to be their dad. There are so many other guys I know out there that are not even allowed to see their kids, then we have Scottyboi who is raising them with his partner. Hats off to them, and to their kids. I know it's tough sometimes Scott, but keep up the great work, your kids will remember it long after they are out on their own. Thanks for being an inspiration to all us gay dads out here! Check out ScottyBoi's site "The Other Side of Straight" and find out what I'm talking about.
