Queer As Folk

  • A Time From Now_Post513

When Queer As Folk ended, like many, I was unsatisfied with that ending so, I began a journey that became this fanfic, which continues the story of most of the main characters while also introducing several new ones. There is also an underlying narrative provided by the Editors of The Brian Kinney Operating Manual that Michael was always so fond of quoting to Justin. This fanfic spans nearly sixty years and in that time people die, but before they do, a lot of living happens and in almost every case, those lives are lived to the fullest of my capabilities. From Daphne to Ted, from Jennifer to Carl, everyone has the life I would have wished for them including Brian and Justin.

  • Even Those Rules Given Down by the Gods_Re-Edit 2018
    During the 2010 tour, Jonny deals with his frustrations in the only way he knows how, by not talking to Evan, by not talking to anyone, by taking matters into his own hands. Thereby making the situation so very more messy.

2018 Mission101

2018 MISSION101_68 /100 TASKS Completed

While I have been doing my own version of mission101, 101 tasks in 365 days instead of the usual 1001 days, for several years now with pretty good sucess completing most of my tasks in the alloted time, this year not so much.

This year in summer my husband, David, retired and my world turned upside down. This retirement wasn't unexpected, just strongly denied until the last possible moment. So, instead of focusing on what I had thought to focus on I, instead, found myself prepping my dear home for sale, a necessity completed at the beginning of December. We did good in California but not good enough to retire there comfortably and so, we move on.

After a month long trek, photos to come, through the south of the United States, down California to Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, we finally arrived here in Florida a couple of weeks ago.

Below what was done for 2018. Please note the fairly large amount of yardwork. I would include a couple of photos but I'm having issues trying to do so using my phone :(

Updating the mission #9_April 2018

While the weather is still reasonable, work commenced on: Project_BACKYARD_29 through 31.

And I have photos to prove it :)
Up until last week, our backyard lay, if not in ruin, then in sadness as can be seen by the below photo with Aaron in the foreground and Orlando and Alfredo, our contractors, in the background. So, David made a plan as can also be seen below wherein, the fence that can be sen in the first photo is onthe left-hand side of the plan.

Next photo is our indecision about how to do the walkway curve. Alfredo was so patient with us as Aaron and I, obviously, kept moving that one truly important line this way and that until we finally got it right and the bender board was installed. Next, we picked out and had delivered the stone, the tan bark, the concrete sand (for under the stone) and the peagravel.

Next is all the bender board installed so the outline finally shows. The black paper-ish stuff is weed blocker we had installed several years ago and which did its job in that this backyard was once full of weeds and now isn't. Unlike the rest of the yards, front, court, curb, and side, which, after last year's rains rains rains, all grow weeds profusely. We reinstalled new paper-ish stuff so its good work will continue on into the future. Below left, Orlando and Alfredo have installed the sand. Then the rocks. Then the pea gravel and tan bark.

And now, at least, a good foundation has been installed. Next PLANTS! And pretty POTS! And trellises! And! And! And!

YAY!! Except, seriously, we have only just begun :)
