Having a straight ally like you in the 50s, was such a rare thing. But after getting to know you a bit, you are a rare breed indeed!
I didn't care about the gay part, it was the fact that it was a black and white relationship that got me. I lived in a neighborhood where blacks were rarely seen. and it pi**ed me off big time. My girlfriend was white. Her partner was black and they went through the tortures of h*ll. Then when word got out that they were gay, it just got worse. My girlfriend was generous to a fault. Her partner was so gentle and soft spoken. You couldn't help but like both of them. And why take out your nasty attitude on a baby? When someone would point out to me that the baby was black, I would respond with some well chosen words.

There could be lobster involved, I don't eat any seafood, but many do, and if it is as cheap as it was last summer, it could be a possibility. That, and I know people who pull them out of the sea, so a good deal is almost guaranteed!
You could have both. A courthouse ceremony with a small reception for family and close friends. You don't want to deny them a chance to celebrate with you. And it is a big occassion. And make sure you invite your lobsterman to the reception. You might just get that lobster free as a wedding present.

When I woke up this morning I realized I was out of an absolutely necessary thing.

Fortunately, there is a store open 24 hours nearby so a $6 cab ride - one way.

It was my own fault that I hadn’t remembered to get that item the last time I was there, but, I just had enough cash to pay for my round trip and still have enough left for my next shopping trip.

I discovered that making positive that I always end up with cash for my next cab trip has made my life much easier. Yes, it upsets my sense of thrift to pay $12 to buy a $2 item, but it also suits my sense of justice. It’s MY fault I had to take a $12 cab ride.

So overall feeling? I actually feel really good. It was so nice to realize that I could splurge and get the necessary item.

Even if I had no cash, I could get some at the ATM, but it made me feel really good that I saved $2.95!

Maine has voted for marriage equality. My partner and I have been together for almost 9 years and we have decided to go to my home state next year and tie the knot! Although our current state of residence will still see us as "just friends", I hope that will too change some day soon!

Just wanted to share this with a lot of people that I consider friends here at DC.
Boy, am I ever late to the party! Sorry I missed this back in November, bc. May I add my congrats to your upcoming nuptials, wherever they end up taking place. Joy, joy!

i'm Still Smiling.:):):)...i may be smiling all day about an observation made, in a still moment of clarity, by tin (tinlizzie) in another thread, 'don't you feel like we are talking in nonsense sentences these days, that sound a lot like lewis carroll's writings, "twas brilling...." when we say things like, "note to self: 'google keurig on amazon....' in our everyday-speak....:)

take a few minutes and look at all of the "nonsense" words we use, quite unconsciously, every day. try making a list--see how many you can come up with....:)
