Jones Pond Pt II

After the cleanup, (e:joe,59017), we headed out to go c(gl)amping with (e:yesthatcasey). We ended up deciding to go back to Jones Pond again, the other option being Brushwood. I have to give props to Casey for being open minded and coming to gay camp with us. It was very tame but he did have to put up with straight jokes and come ons from the resident senior citizens.

Almost the entire trip was a good time. The weather was amazing, we got plenty of swimming, football, beer and cheesesticks in. It was nice to relax and be outside in perfect temperatures. We found a good wooded camp site away from the open field.

On the other hand, I had fun hanging out among ourselves, but there weren't many people there I had interest in hanging out with. Getting looked at and talked about like pieces of meat gets old pretty fast. Obviously things were busier and a little less crazy for us than last week, but it's not a place I'd want to go back to very often.

Spring planting

Saturday morning, before we went camping, (e:paul), (e:terry) and I did some work around the house. (e:Paul) finished painting and repainting the driveway side of the trim on the house - it looks so good now.

Terry and I did some gardening - we planted snapdragon, sedum, catmint among other things. We also finally turned over the compost - it's real good after you get below the winter's worth of food.

Basra is an idiot and got himself stuck under the firepit. Instead of walking out, he stood up and started draging it around the yard.

Lindsay's going away

Friday night, we headed out with (e:yesthatcasey) and (e:mike) to Casa Di Pizza to say goodbye to Lindsay. She got this 5 month forestry gig down in Kentucky, which is pretty awesome.

Cooking with Terry


After all the shopping, (e:terry) gave a cooking lesson to (e:yesthatcasey) and me. We had a dinner of burritos and rice and beans (sorry (e:paul)). I want to start to learn cooking something a little more complicated than spaghetti and vegetables.

Paul goes to Aldi


(e:Paul) and I went on a shopping extravaganze yesterday. Target, Home Depot, and Pep Boys. I made him come check out Aldi. I used to be so obsessed with it but I haven't been back since October when I moved. I wonder why? They even have gluten free and organic things now. Boug on a budget.

We did cancel it out on the way home with a stop at the coop.

Quick Letchworth hike

Going home from Jones Pond, we stopped at Letchworth for a short hike - (e:flacidness) had never been there before. It was a beautiful day. I wanted to just fall asleep laying in the sun for the rest of the day.

Jones Pond

Saturday we headed out to Jones Pond to glamp with (e:flacidness). The weather was a little chilly and rainy but we made the best of it. As soon as we got there we were sucked into this day drunk party of retired gays. We managed to get away after a little bit, and hung out in the cabin while it rained.

After a greasy dinner, we got ready for a PJ party in the barn - it was real campy and not too many people were dancing besides us. The rest of the night after that was long and interesting - we met all sorts of people including a furry (e:paul,58990).

It's weird, the people there are very old and retirement-homey. It makes me think that Jones Pond is fun, but gay camp is quickly becoming one of those "gay community" things that is fading into the past now that society is more tolerant and integrated.

Didn't manage to get many pictures - hard to carry a phone in a onesie

Mary's birthday

After working in the yard, we went out to dinner with my family for my sister Mary's birthday. Well, we struggled to plan something for two hours on the phone first, and then went out to Crust for dinner. We got a cheese, buffalo chicken and gluten-free veggie. Not sure what the gluten bigoted crust was made from but it was amazingly thin and crispy.

Afterwards we headed over to Hardware with Mary and Emily and to hang with (e:flacidness) and his friend Ra(sp?)

Yard clean up

After getting home from work, (e:paul), (e:terry) and I worked on getting the garden beds cleaned up and ready. Terry mowed the lawn and trimmed the huge plant in the backyard, and Paul and I tilled and weeded the raised beds. We used the chipper to chop up the branches - it was fun.

We accidently uncovered a rabbits nest in one of the beds. I was so afraid we were going to find a baby rabbit massacre nearby. Thankfully they've already moved somewhere else in the yard.

Church of the Ascension doors


(e:Paul) noticed the doors on the church of the Ascension turned red recently. They got rid of the nice solid hardwood doors and now are plasticy and red. Were they sold? What's left?
