I Don’t Want A Pickle

A wise man once said something I’ve always found to be true:

“I don’t want a pickle, I just want to ride on my motor-cicle. And I don’t want a tickle, I’d rather ride on my motor-cicle. And I don’t want to die-I just want to ride on my motor-cy-cle”

But I also believe in being prepared for sudden cravings. It’s brain food you know?

Vultures and The Giant Penis Statue

This morning I did what I do every Sunday, take a quick shower and hop on my motorcycle. After a tremendous amount of iced coffee I decided to head down to the Conowingo Dam in Maryland.

This time of year there are very few bald eagles but plenty of weird turkey vultures. Do they eat only turkey you might ask? No, they eat cars! Click on the thumbnail to see the angry birds in all their glory. You can see part of the dam in the background.

These angry birds eat rubber and plastic for some reason, favoring car bumpers, windshield wipers, and if you’re not careful your motorcycle seat and gloves. One guy had a tarp over his truck near the hiking trail, but the others are going to have a very unpleasant surprise when they come back to the parking lot.

I headed up the hill and down to nearby Susquehanna State Park. There I saw something fabulous-a giant penis statue made of stone and brick. Click on the thumbnail to see a sharper shot.

Much to my surprise, this is actually not a giant penis statue at all. This is the Stafford Flint Furnace and is all that remains of the once thriving town of Stafford.

It just goes to show that nothing is what it seems. For example, on the way home I saw what I was sure were piles of leaves and stakes set up to burn witches. It turns out that they are really Amish tobacco plants drying in the sun, waiting for the farmers to get back to the fields tomorrow. Click on the thumbnail to see a better shot.

Although I’m glad I discovered that truth is not always stranger than fiction, I was a little disappointed that there would be no witch burning. You rarely see that these days.

Romper Room

So I’m minding my own business trying to get through today’s email, and this ad is on the sidebar. Its for Make Me Chic, featuring all kinds of pretty rompers and jumpsuits which I’ve always had a weakness for.

If you’re on Yahoo you’ve probably seen the website and I would suggest checking it out. Their prices seem very good, sizes go up to large and maybe extra large for you big guys. I’m not sure because I want to get out on my bike before the wind picks up.

The only thing that bothers me slightly with this romper is that it cost $27 and they offer free shipping for orders over $29. Maybe I’ll check out their accessories later but I must have this. Its a short convertible floral romper that’s machine washable. Perfect for just about everything except riding my motorcycle.

Note 1: There is a size guide for each item next to the description-use it.

Note 2: Its short, very short. Be aware of that and choose your panties carefully.

The Problem With Sissies

The problem with sissies is that they rarely take good photos of themselves. Maybe its a lack of technical knowledge, but I think its probably more of being in a hurry to get their panties off and change back into non sissy mode.

Yes, I know there are some sissies that dress up and prance around all the livelong day, but I think they are the exception.

So here is a very interesting Tumblr blog I found featuring a little bit of everything. Its called Menelwena for some reason, possibly because that’s her name. Some images are NSFW but are very tasteful. Enjoy.

Photographing Friends

You want to make him comfortable and relaxed so the photo looks natural, not forced. I’ve found the best way to accomplish this is to talk to him during the photo shoot.

Tell him he how adorable he is, or how great his hair looks, or how sexy his beauty mark is. Keep the compliments flowing until you get a shot that reflects his inner poise, confidence and beauty.

And the most important thing to remember is not to make fun of his big nose or hairy ears, after all, nobody’s perfect.

The Spring Crossdresser

You decide to go to the park to commune with nature, and celebrate another wonderful spring. Walking around very comfortably, you notice the new buds, plants and flowers that make this time of year so special.

Reaching for the phone in your purse to take a few pictures of the pretty Daffodils, you’re suddenly aware of people all around you. Mostly young women walking their dogs and a few joggers. You hear them laughing and whispering but try to focus on the flowers. Eventually, you glance over and it seems that everyone is staring at you. Now you’re not so comfortable.

Feeling a bit self conscious, you continue taking pictures and try to ignore them, but you can no longer concentrate and decide to leave. You’re angry at yourself for worrying about what other people think, might think, but reluctantly head back to your car.

A very pretty jogger is headed your way and you keep walking. Then she stops, they almost never stop. So you brace yourself, wondering what she is going to say.

She looks you up and down with the beginning of a smile, and then stares into your eyes. WHAT IS SHE THINKING, WHAT DOES SHE WANT, WHAT WILL SHE SAY, you wonder.

Then she comes right out with it; “Oh-My-God that dress is amazing! Where did you get it?”

Whether you tell her on not is up to you, but be aware that if you do pretty soon everyone might be wearing the same dress. Is that what you really want?

Note: this dress only comes in extra small, small or medium, so you might want to check out the complete Spring Flower collection.

Man’s Preference for Panties Gives Girlfriend Pause

DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend has worn panties since he was 12. We are both 20 and have been together for a year. I know it’s odd, but I’ve always thought it was cute and, admittedly, sexy. We will graduate from college next year and are thinking about our futures.

I’ve been doing some reading and am concerned that he may have some repressed tendencies. He says he does not, and gets quiet and stubborn and won’t discuss it. He always dresses as a female character for Halloween, wearing my undies. This year he went as Lady Gaga.

Are these good-enough reasons to be worried? And if so, what should I do? – TESTED IN TAMPA

DEAR TESTED: Whether or not you should worry depends upon what you are worried about. I am more concerned that your boyfriend is unwilling to discuss this than what he’s wearing under his Levis.

If you’re afraid he may not be 100 percent heterosexual, you should know that some straight men wear ladies’ panties because they like the way they feel. Also, some men who enjoy cross-dressing have successful marriages to women who aren’t threatened by it and who help them do it.

Repressed Tendencies?

The Creative Crossdresser

I put together a new Pinterest board called Lingerie For Men, and it wasn’t as easy as you’d think. Out of hundreds of great photos of beautiful women in lingerie only a few stood out. Only a few were really different, or what I think of as creative.

Yes, they were all gorgeous, and they were all wearing incredible pieces of lingerie in pretty colors, but most had the same expression and pose. Either they were sitting in a chair, often backwards, leaning against a wall, or lying on a couch or bed.

The same is true for the thousands of photos of crossdressers I see all over the web, especially Pinterest. So these photos are meant to give you some ideas and inspiration to try something new, rather than take a quick selfie in your bathroom.

For example, many of you don’t want to show your face so you blur it or crop out your head. The photo below is a fantastic example of a way to do something different, something creative that you’ll be proud to show your friends at work and post online.

As Ansel Adams once said: “There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.” OK that’s actually a bit confusing, but take what you can from it.
