Merry Christmas 2019!!

This Christmas, I am in El Paso with family and friends, celebrating the holidays and life!
I am not alone this season, but for those of you who are, find that light in you and enjoy yourself! Take yourself out for a fancy dinner.  Even for those who don't mind spending holidays alone, it can be tricky not wallowing in loneliness, so, at the very least get yourself out of the house, for a coffee maybe and read a book or the newspaper (all 5 pages) in public.  Even if you're not with them, being around people can help.  If you insist on staying in, please masturbate.   That's always good for cheering me up! 

This one is always a treat so enjoy Marcus.
Enjoy the holidays!
Enjoy yourself!

Gay of A Certain Age - Not this Year, Stupid Tree!

Gentle reader, as you may recall, several past Christmases have ended the same way; me, listening to post-Christmas Chris Isaak, sipping prosecco from a cute little glass and falling into a weeping heap of alone, flailing because I realized no one saw my tree.  "Not this year," I say!!   I have outsmarted my elusive tree, that I swear points with all its branches and laughs at me when I open that front door and am alone; no friend, no neighbor, no desperate guy who wants to be touched by ANYONE with a pulse. Just me.  This year I took an event, well, the only event I have that brings people into my home every year, CRAFT NIGHT, and made it a Pop Up Christmas Card Crafting Adventure!

Here's the very necessary Disclaimer: Sorry you weren't invited!
The guest list was very small and consisted of a few Craft Night Originals and other people who have recently had me in their home. When what very little was said was done, I had 7 guests altogether who could make it and that was the perfect amount.  I wanted to get back to basics and actually sit & talk & craft with everybody, rather than playing host and making sure everyone was alright with food, drink, snacks and parking permits.  And that's what happened.  Also, now at least 7 people have seen my Christmas tree!
And now, so have you!

It was a nice small, but lively group and we crafted and laughed and caught up and created some really fun cards.

Take a look at some cards!

And some of mine...

This may be my favorite creation this year.
Love Connie
is such a treat!

Of Course, there were some Naughty ones you can see HERE

I really appreciate my friends, especially the ones with eyes who have bared witness to my Christmas Tree.  ...And since I'm showing of my tree, here are some favorite ornaments

I got this one at!
Would my tree be the tree of a Gay of a Certain Age without it?

I thought it would be fun to get us each a coordinating Merman ornament as a gift.
(except Steven; I couldn't find one with a crown of thorns!)
I got them from December Diamonds on Amazon

Why, yes, that is a MEAN GIRLS THE MUSICAL ornament!
Would my tree be the tree of a Gay of a Certain Age without it?

So, aside from going to Disneyland, you can find other scary ornaments at Horrornaments

As a Gay of A Certain Age, I know that when I put up a Christmas tree each year, that I do it to make myself happy and cheerful whether anybody sees it or not.  I also knows it's super nice when people do see it, so it's a great excuse to invite people into my home to see it!
