Joy and Sorrow

I had an interesting week...got to go out and got to meet my half brother from California for the first time. He's in the area visiting relatives and they stopped by briefly on their way to visit my cousins. I wasn't sure what I'd think of meeting him at first as I have only seen my father one time in the past 38 years. I had seen baby pictures of my half-brother, but never so much as talked to him on the phone. He's 18 years old and it was very important to him to meet his family out east. We spent a few hours together and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. We're going to try to get together again next week.

Later that night, Tonya and I attended Vice Versa's 5 year B-Day Party and had a great time. I've been talking to a TS girl the past several weeks that met us down there. I'm always a bit apprehensive meeting people for the first time, but Lori was great and I hope she will become a regular at our table.

We're starting to meet more and more regulars at Vice Versa. The staff there is fantastic and so is the crowd. Most everyone is friendly; it's quite common to just have people stop by your table to chat or ask for a dance. This past Saturday, Tonya was stopped by a guy when she was on her way to the bathroom. He was flirting with her a bit and said he had better stop before her buff girlfriend kicked his butt. LOL When she explained that her "girlfriend" was actually her husband, he had to come over to see for himself. Later that night, someone else asked about her girlfriend as well. We talked about this later and, while it's certainly good for my ego, people mistaking us for a girlfriends is probably preventing some people from talking to us. Guess we're gonna have be a little more outgoing ourselves. Certainly that won't be a problem for Tonya; I, on the other hand, need some work in that area.

Online meetings remain a bit disappointing. I've met several fantastic people online...unfortunately they all live on the other side of the country. No real luck finding local girls online, but we're starting to meet them at the club, so that works even better.

On the downside...our beloved dog, Zeus, has cancer. At the present time, he's in great spirits and pain free, but the Vet says there is nothing that can be done for him. Zeus is a Rottweiler/Labrador mix that we got from the pound 6 years ago. He had Parvo when we got him and the vet said there was virtually no way he would live. But, we took him home, gave him IV fluids and nursed him back to health, so he's been beating the odds for a long time. He has been a tremendous friend that I have always counted on to protect my family on nights when I work late. When it comes time to put him down, it will be one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Life sucks sometimes...

I know how you feel as I have had to do the same thing with my dog. The only way I could do it was knowing that he was in a lot of pain and no chance of getting better. I held him in my arms and gently talked to him as they gave him the shot. He just went to sleep and looked so peacefully. It is still hart to do but deep down you know that it has to be done. You are right when you said that life SUCKS sometimes.
