Sinn's Visit and OKC Gay Pride 2008

Today was a sad day, my beautiful best friend went back home to Pennsylvania.

She was here with her wife and daughter for a whole week and i loved every second of it! we talked, we laughed, we ate, we drank, we walked, we watched TV, she knitted, we shopped, we sat in comfortable silences. i have to say they were a complete joy to have around.

this is her with her wife on the left, and beautiful daughter on the right .

Prince Tiger has a new girlfriend and mommy couldn't be happier! The royal family was very pleased, being very social and cuddly.

The Oklahoma City Gay Pride Celebration on June 20th was fun. Here are a few pics from the parade.

Gay bikers and... gay cops? lol

lots of banners, floats and beads.

I know you cant really see what the sign says, this guy is representing gay teachers!

Here's Mary with Miss Gay Oklahoma. I still cant believe she ran up to the car like that!

gay dogs to the right!

and more gay cops! lolAfter we watched the parade we drove up the street to the real celebration. I was in awe when i saw the crowd. There was a sea of people and this picture doesn't do it any justice. Trust me when i say to multiply the people in this pic by 1000. If i had a better camera and weren't facing the sun i would have gotten a great shot of the mass party.

I have been on a happy high all week and I am so sad that they had to go back home. I couldn't ask for better house guests. There was always something to do and a lot of things i didn't get to do. there never seems to be enough time. I will miss them. I hope they had fun because i did, and cant wait till the next time.

And because i couldn't post them all here, there are even more pics of the OKC pride parade on my flickr page, . I have to say that i am very impressed with the number of pictures my phone was taking and holding. Pic after pic and never a full warning! when i got home to download it all i had 345 pics! It was handling things! lol
Thanks everyone for reading and as my niece said, "Keep being gay".

Sangin n Dancin

Hi people! Well, me and my hands are feeling much better these days. i had to blog today because I'm feeling particularly well. its like I've almost got my mojo back! but then there's the problem of what to do with it when it does come back. i wont worry about that now, though. I've got a swing in my step and a song in my heart. "Ooh Celie! I feels like sangin!" lol and let me add to that dancin!!
i cant wait till my bff arrives next week! yes, yes it is time for our once a year visit! I want to do so many things this year. a photo shoot with her family, the gay pride celebration on the 20th, a tour of the city! our city has been under remodel since the 90's but things are really cookin now. i gotta show her all the upgrades around town that we cant afford to use! lol what else?? knitting shops and stitch and bitches, oh we're gonna talk and have fun.

i wish i could move up where she lives. seems like everyone here has legal and/or drug problems. I'm starting to stereotype the people in the place I've lived all my life. i grew up with a good part of the population so it pains me to feel this way. i think i need a change of scenery to separate myself, unfortunately that will have to wait. i know, i am the one that needs to change and adapt. i am working on it as always. things really are looking up for me these days. i wont go into it though.

I'll close for now with a photo of the Prince Tiger caught in his mommy's shoes! Prince Tiger has a shoe fetish!
