Food blogger Hope Early finds one item not on her scavenger hunt list—a dead husband . . .
 
 Between developing her food blog, Hope at Home, and choosing low-cal recipes for a feature in Cooking Now! magazine, Hope has a full plate. Still, she’s never too busy to compete in a Jefferson, Connecticut, tradition—the town’s annual scavenger hunt.

The Misfit, Part 2 of 2 Parts


dontravis.com blog post #359     The Dreamcatcher-Courtesy of Free Stock Ready for the rest of it? We left Part 1 with John seeming to agree to do anything in order to pass his class. Did he really mean anything? And why is it so important for him to graduate. That answer seems obvious. To build himself a future. But maybe there’s a deeper answer to that question. Read on ***** THE MISFIT John submitted to me with his eyes closed. He was fantasy made flesh. Dark, smooth almost hairless flesh. In the grip of raging, selfish, lust, I failed to consider the significance of his eyes remaining closed throughout the entire wonderful experience. When it was over, he reached for his clothing and ask...

The Misfit, Part 1 of 2 Parts


dontravis.com blog post #359     The Dreamcatcher-Courtesy of Free Stock This week, my story comes in two parts. I confess to some trepidation in posting this story, as it involves “meeting yourself unexpectedly,” so to speak. And when a young man discovers things about himself, he doesn’t always accept them gracefully if they conflict with the way he believes things ought to be. Let’s see how John Running handles them. ***** THE MISFIT The enraged youth stood motionless, absolutely rigid. Yet his body pulsed with fury. Legs planted, knees flexed, fists clenched, he made me consider the possibility this might become physical. Like most teachers, I often take on misfits as projects, but John ...

Are Women Opened to Dating a Gay/Bisexual Man? By Miss Know It All


Miss Know It All I don’t know if it’s a stigma now, but women have been dating gay/bisexual men since the beginning of time. I know of someone who dated and married a gay/bisexual man back in the late 50s. And everyone knew about his lifestyle, including his mate. Of course back then people didn’t make a public announcement about their sexual orientation, but with the onset of social media, everybody’s business seems to be an open book. I am not into sharing, so I would never knowingly marry a gay/bisexual man.  And there are other important issues at play here, which the books Broken and Broken Hearted 2: Secrets Revealed by Charlotte Marshall-Murray touch on. So, my question is : Would you...
