#257669 Happy Birthday, Tyler!

Posted by Tyler on 18 May 2018 - 11:46 AM

Thanks much guys... I spent the day gardening and enjoying the sunshine.


LOOK what I got for my birthday... this video is taken just before she finished it but I received the finished painting today - it took my breath away and it's off to the framing shop. I will post a pic when it's framed...


This is a short video from Denise showing the present, the same wonderful childhood friend who did the solo portrait of my boy.

Did you ever wonder what happened to Dennis the Menace when he got older?

Pastol, this one's for you 



Now that your life has come to an end

I am sad because you were my friend.

I will miss you very much

because my life you did touch.

Now that your pain has ceased

I hope you can find some peace

in a much better place

with a smile on your face.

So I say again

rest easy my friend.

Sorry for being incommunicado since Tuesday.  I've had my house repainted this past week; and, this past Sunday evening, I disconnected the computers in the office in anticipation of the painters working in that room on Monday.  Which they did  :claps:   :claps:   :claps:  Anyway, when I re-connected the computers on Tuesday, I got no power or connection to my internet modem  :bad PC:  :bad PC:   I even tried connecting it directly to the convenience outlet. . .no luck.  So, I contacted AT&T about getting a service technician out to look at the problem.  Friday (today) between 2 and 4 pm was the earliest  <_<  After hanging around the house until 4:15 pm today and not being contacted or no one showing up, I called AT&T again.  Was told that their national dispatch service hadn't even contacted a service tech at that time.  The young man on the phone apologized and said he'd get one to be within 30 minutes.  Was he on the ball  :claps:  :claps: Turns out that it was the power chord and brick.  Got that swapped out and I've been online and cleaning out spam since about 5:30 pm :lol: and catching up on my browsing.


BTW - the house looks great ! ! ! And, I'm enjoying clean surfaces and door facings  :haha:   Was very pleased with the price quotes I received.  For exterior painting (soffits & fascia, trim, siding above roof, garage & patio door and re-staining front door) and interior painting (all rooms except closets. . .ceilings, walls & trim and door facings), in a 2,199 square foot house with 15 foot high ceilings in the main rooms, and 10 foot high ceilings in the bedrooms, dining room and office; 2 color. . .power blue in the common areas and warm yellow in the bedrooms. . .price was just slightly over $ 6,200.  :rainbowbounce:

Sorry I haven't been around guys, I had no idea this would hit me so hard. I have been so lonely and devastated and it's already been 11 weeks this Friday. On every Friday at 10:15 like some lunatic I can't stop re-living that awful day like a morbid anniversary. I am moving along slowly and coming back here to say hello to my forum mates shows that I guess.


Here's the final copy of the painting my childhood friend did for me... she added some detail to the collar hardware and some more blues in the water... she did such a beautiful job capturing his essence - it looks exactly like him in every way. I knew she would as she has a way of making pictures into artwork... I can reproduce stuff but I'm not a natural artist like her. We knew each other through art class actually as we were both considered unteachable by the crazy cat lady who taught art in our high school and we both got year long projects to work on by ourselves at the back of the class. I painted an enormous painting of Barbra Streisand close up from her disco days (was from her Memories album I think) - I just liked her and was not out of the closet and had no idea I was painting who would become a gay icon. I now humorously wonder what the other boys in the class might have thought but Denise and I kept to ourselves so it didn't matter to me anyway.


The painting arrives by Fedex tomorrow and straight to the framing shop it goes. I'll post a picture of it when it's framed.




Dad, before I went 

I wanted you to know

I loved when you rubbed my tummy 

I loved how you called me cutey pie 

I loved when you broke my treats into small pieces

I loved it when you kissed my ears and said they were soft as silk

I loved when you said ‘do you love me dad’ I always wagged and said yes in my heart

I loved when you would hide and I would come find you

I loved your laughter when I did silly things

I loved when you tapped on my can of food to get my attention before you fed me

I loved all the bags of jerky you gave me and how you smiled as I ran off with them so happily

I loved how you held my paw when we went for drives

I loved how happy I made you feel when you came home from the hospital and I was waiting for you at the door

I loved how you came to me for comfort when you were sad

I loved all the great toys you bought me

I loved when you sang to me at night

Dad, YOU were my sunshine all along 

I loved the way you took special care of me when I got old and slowed down

And most of all I loved when you lay with me when my time came whispering in my ear how great a friend I was

As you comforted me as I left you I felt so very loved.


Bandit, sometimes I don’t know if the tears I cry are for you or for myself

Because I must now live without you

Two things I do know...

I love you

I miss you

And my heart hurts

A million words would not bring you back, I know because I’ve tried

Neither would a million tears, I know because I’ve cried.


I’ll never forget you baby.



(PS I can't take credit for writing all of that as I borrowed parts and modified them to suit what I wanted to write)

#250358 Savannah, GA

A few years ago, my wife and I visited Savannah, GA - I've always liked "the old South" and nothing says "Old South" quite like Savannah.  Unfortunately the weather was uncooperative which gives us an excuse to go back and visit again.


A few shots from Bonaventure Cemetery - featured in the movie / book "From The Garden of Good and Evil"

We also visited Tybee Island - I love lighthouses - I guess it goes back to my Navy days :).
