I continued to wear a different pair from boots in my cowboy boot collection and my motorcycle boot collection. This past week was a real mix of boots on my feet, as we began the week with a huge but non-accumulating snowstorm, and ended the week with cool but “becoming Spring” weather.
Here goes — these are the boots I wore to work this past week. Continue reading
Readers who regularly follow my blog know that I am in a committed relationship with the man I have loved for just about 20 years. He is my rock, my sunshine, my thought-provoker, my hunk, my bestest friend, my noggin-knockin’ noodle, and much more. We are engaged to be married sometime this year, since same-sex marriage is now allowed in the state where we live, the Free State of Maryland, here in the good ol’ USA.
As many people around the world know, there are two cases that were presented before the United States Supreme Court this week that are related to same-sex marriage. There has been much commentary in the news media, and especially on social networks.
So why haven’t I said anything or changed my social media profile photo to any of the images shown here?
Here are more examples of actual, as-written, as-searched, boot-related “how” questions that direct visitors to my website or this blog. Some questions are serious, some are strange, and some are amusing. If you are wondering, I can “see” the questions that direct visitors to my website/blog, but I cannot tell who the visitor actually is. I respect privacy.

I had to do the weekly grocery shopping by myself yesterday as my fiance was not feeling in any shape to go with me. The meds he is taking to treat the relapse of his illness cause great fatigue.
Anyway, as I entered the store, I saw one of my senior pals. She looked rather upset. I stopped to ask what was going on, when a cop walked up and said…
As I continued on my endeavor to wear each pair of boots in my cowboy boot collection and my motorcycle boot collection without repeating any, I did not realize just how many pairs of boots I own that have ostrich skin on the foot! Here goes — more ostrich this whole week! Continue reading
I am pleased to report that I have influenced a guy to buy a pair of boots to wear with dress clothes to the office — in Washington, DC! Here is his message, reproduced with permission:
I am truly sad, upset, and angry by the evidence. Evidence of return of three ugly, nasty, awful yet invisible monsters.
Funny, someone entered an internet search that seemed to reveal this Texas-based smartphone-user was surprised to find out that I am gay:
Yep, I am. Booted Harleydude is gay. There, I said it. Any difference now that you know? I hope not. After all, I am the same guy that I have been all along.
I continue to have a debate with myself, and sometimes in reaction to what I read on some discussion forums or in exchange with some friends, about “how gay I am” or if the Gay Police will confiscate my gay card because I am not “gay enough.”
I continue to affirm that I am who I am, with some identities or feelings from the gay guy world, and some from the straight guy world. Rather than feel divided and left out of both, let me explain how I feel included as part of both worlds — a much better place to be!
As I continued on my endeavor to wear each pair of boots in my cowboy boot collection and my motorcycle boot collection without repeating any, I realized that I own a lot of ostrich boots, so this week I wore ostrich boots again to work in my office — a different pair every day.
