Where There's Hope

The Love of My Life
L.O.M.L. had to work again today and crept out of our motel room at
5:45 am. I spent the morning filling time getting the van ready for its
final run home, and getting myself scalped. I had got sick of my shaggy
hair which didn't hide my advanced baldness anyway, so I got a
buzz-cut. It makes my look like Yoda, but the lady barber assured me
that everyone thinks Yoda is cute and cuddly!
One of the machines at the
mill where LO.M.L. works broke down, so they sent them home early. I
was fast asleep in his basement suite when he arrived home, but it
didn't take me long to wake up when he waved his viagra-enhanced dick
at me. He put it to good use in the next hour, before we said our
tearful goodbyes at 3:30, and I set out on the drive south to Hope, via
the Coquahalla Highway.
The Coquahalla Highway is just another freeway,
really, but what a spectacular one, climbing up from the desert of
Kamloops practically to the alpine tree line, and then winding down
again over 250 km to Hope in the Coast Ranges.
I reached Hope just at
dusk, and hit the hay early, because I had a long day ahead of me on
*Unfortunately, I never did "strike gold", not even in Hope which had been
the jump-off center of the Great Gold Rushes of the 1890's!

I guess the gods smiled on me during the night. When I was
loading the van for my early morning run this morning, I noticed that
several cars in the parking lot of the motel had had their tires
slashed. On the ground alongside my vehicle was a length of electrical
wire, presumably for the purpose of hot-wiring a vehicle, but my
van appeared to be untouched. I suppose I should have been the good
citizen and called the cops, but I didn't want to be stuck there for
the rest of the day. I am sure the first owner to find his tires flat
would call them.
I reached the ferry with plenty of time to spare, and
no sailing waits ahead of me, which put me in Gibson's Landing early,
which was good, because I had it booked in for 50 000 km service at the
local Dodge dealer. We don't have one in Powell River, and I will never
deal again with Comox Valley Dodge, where I bought the van, because
they tried to pull a major rip-off on me when I took it over for some
service and warranty work just before I set out.
After another 80 km
drive and another ferry, I was finally home right at 5pm.

Best Meal Bargain:
The $17.50 "Combination Dinner" at the Bali
restaurant in Sault Ste. Marie, ON. For your $17.50 you get to choose
any of the soups on the menu, and a spring roll, and an egg roll, and
your choice of about 16 of their pork, chicken, or beef main dishes,
and a choice of Balinese deserts, and tea or coffee.
The shrimp and scallop stir-fry at the restaurant in
the Day's Inn, Sydney, NS. For $22.50, this "Special of the Day" had 5 small shrimp

and green peppers and a tasteless sauce.
In that nine weeks I
had sex of one form or another with 13 guys. I had sucked different 12
cocks, and been fucked 31 times by 8 guys. (I don't count the guy who
stuck it in, came immediately, then went soft!)
The Most Beautiful
Powell River, BC, my home town. No Kidding! In the last light of
the day on Wednesday night, I took Buddy for a walk and could only
marvel at the beauty of this area on a warm summer evening, with the
Strait of Georgia out there, streaked with the wakes of small boats
heading in from a day's fishing and beyond it the silhouette of
Home, sweet home!
And again in the morning, I was struck once more by
the same view in the daylight! I live in a most beautiful place!

Good News for Buddy!
This morning we were outside unloading the minivan when the
post-lady came up the drive with a package for us. Buddy must have been able to smell the contents,
because she began leaping up at the post-lady excitedly. Sure enough! Inside was her beloved Little Buddy!

Welcome Home Bonus:
I had hardly finished the essential unpacking
when the phone rang. It was a local married man who likes to hook up a
couple of times a year. He didn't even know I had been away. He wanted
to come over and fuck. I could hardly turn the poor man down, now,
So he did, and we did!

A Great Welcome Home:
Monday, Aug 18th - Powell River, BC
While I was on the road, a new member joined. He was from my home town
(Powell River, BC, not Perth, Australia). The new guy, in his early 30's, got chatting with me, and he told me he was new to town and didn't know anyone, and was VERY horny!
Last night he messaged me about 11:30, asking if I was
horny. I told him I was. He asked if I wanted to get together and fuck.
I did! And we did!
We fucked a couple of times in my bedroom, but it was
stinking hot in there, so then we went down to one of the basement
bedrooms for another round.
We slept down there, and it was great to
awaken with his arms round me and his stiffening dick pressing against
We managed to do it again before he had to take a shower and
head off to work at 7am.
New CanadianGay member and his member!
And he's coming back after work today!
welcome home from one of our members!
So good to be home!
