Hi Folks!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I'll be taking this week off from blogging.

I've got a new book I want to read, several movies to catch up on, and will be reorganizing a lot of work related stuff that's been overflowing in my apartment.

The weather has be gorgeous, so I'll also be spending time sitting in my favorite park feeding the squirrels, while watching the greedy little BASTARD pigeons doing their best to steal all the peanuts.

Wishing all a fabulous week!

Oh...but before I go, I want to leave you with a photograph that was taken of my good friend David and I, while we were living/performing in Japan.

You see...

...this is what happens when two theatrical gay men go sunglass shopping in a foreign country, and end up innocently FREAKING OUT the sweet, unsuspecting sales girl behind the counter....

"There's no business like show business....."

See ya next Monday!



  1. Pigeons are my associates! Bring a suitcase full of bread (crumbs) for them next time, got it? They will leave peanuts alone when you do. Capice?

  2. Hope you have wonderfully relaxing week hanging out with the squirrels and Heather.

    LOVE that picture!!

  3. ROTFL! Bro, you are too freakin' funny! I would have loved to see that salesgirl's face.

    Enjoy your week off. Baby squirrels abound here right now. So damn cute!

    See ya, hun!

  4. I read some of that book in Barnes not too long ago. I sometimes like her blog, and some of the pictures she posts are cool too, but the book didn't hold my attention for the duration. I get distracted easily I guess. LOL
    I hope YOU love it though!

    That picture is a riot. Looks like you and your friend had ALOT of fun traveling. Wear those sunglasses when you sit in the park this week and either:
    No one will bother you... just another colorful and funky character in Philly. OR:
    Everyone will come over because you will look so freaking fabulous. LOL
    Of course you KNOW I'd have to approach and ask where you got them!

    Have a WONDERFUL week off!!! Give a few peanuts to your squirrely friends from me, okay!?

  5. Ohhhh.....a good book AND squirrel feeding! takes a week to finally get the squirrels a peanut or two? BAD PIGEONS!!!


    Enjoy, sir!

  6. Have a good break, Ron. Hope the book is worth your time. See you when you get back. Whatever will I do without your posts? :(

  7. I hope you manage to do all that you want to do on your week off Ron.

    Love that photo!

  8. Aloha Debi!

  11. Helloooo Crystal Chick!

    I'll let you know how I enjoy (or not) the book.

    It took me THREE weeks to get it from the library, so I hope it's good.

    See ya next week, neighbor!

  12. Hiya Mel!

    Yesterday when I was feeding the squirrels, a HUGE flock of pigeons landed on the bench I was sitting on....

    ..I looked like the Birdman of Alcatraz!

    See ya next week, dear lady!

  13. Hey Roberto!

  14. Afternoon Akelamalu!

    This morning I started sorting out all the STUFF from work.

    OY VEY!!?

    Glad you enjoyed the photo, dear lady!

    See ya next week!

  15. As you sit in the park and feed your friends, reading your book and chilling out, think about how things in the cornfields of Iowa are.
    I will miss not reading your words for the upcoming week. I may go into a Ron withdrawl and start to shake and crave Fluff.
    I know that 7 days is not much to ask your readers to endure and endure we must, I know it will make your return more of a reward than we can imagine.

    So my friend sit your little ass down in the park and give your nuts to the squirrels.
    Now have a wonderful week.


  16. Ronnie: i will post tomorrow the rest of my trip but I can't wait to tell you. Our Hearst Castle tour guide looked like you. Also what i think you sound like. He was so much fun. He had long hair tied in a pony tail behind. He wore a white hat that reminded me cuba...or more so Key West.

    he put on a red round clown nose and waved at us as the bus began it's trek downnthe hill.
