Short break from the story…

Let’s take a little hiatus from my Washington Story for a day or two.  I need to put some things together to properly tell the rest of that story, and I also need to get permission from some people who were involved to tell some of it.  I am changing names to protect people’s identities already, but I realized I may be treading in some places where I need to be a little careful.

I would also like to dig up some of the photographs of that time.  There are some good ones of me and of places in the story.  Once those are scanned into my PC and edited I can add them to the story for some visual appeal.  I know you’ll enjoy seeing them.

I saw a photograph of a can of Milwaukee’s Best beer today, which I took as a sign that writing this story out is the right thing to do right now. That cheap skunk ass beer is what we used to buy to drink during those very lean money times.  I could get a 6 pack of “The Beast” as we called Milwaukee’s Best, and a pack of smokes for about 3 bucks.  Yes, it was the 80’s and still the era of the cheap buzz.

I was also reminded that there were lots of drugs involved in things during this time.  I’m not talking about some weed here and there, I’m talking about PCP, Cocaine, heroin and speed.  I had been into drugs since I was about 17 pretty heavily.  I don’t talk about this aspect of things in detail in the story, but I was high most of the time during that period of time.  Not a good or proud thing, but very true.

So tonight I am taking a little break from the Washington DC story, but I will definitely be finishing it for you all to read if you are interested.  I thank all who have sent me emails and texts saying they are having fun reading of my shenanigans.  I love getting those responses and messages from you all.

I am a pretty relaxed, proud, Butch and a native Mainer who enjoys reading, writing, blogging, vlogging and social interaction. I live in southern Maine, near the coast with my 2 small dogs and I hail from a very large, loving family that is historically rooted here. I write about my life, my experiences, living successfully with HIV, my YouTube experiences, and just about anything that piques my interest. This blog may contain profanity and sexual situations, and is not intended for younger audiences. Read at your own risk. At 54 I see life as just beginning a new chapter, and have decide this is the time that I need to write the stories that got me to this point. I believe we live our lives in chapters, changing, evolving and moving continuously with the times. I love to laugh, have discussions, debates and even the occasional nonsense conversation! I generally enjoy people, but not drama, hatred, ignorance or those who choose to feel they are somehow elite or superior to another simply due to their mere existence. I try to be very conscious of the health of the world around me - environmentally, socially, economically, and ethically. The people who are dear to me know me as having a tough exterior, filled with marshmallow and crunchy peanut butter. I continually strive to be the best I can be, especially to address life head on...always.
