about me
Masculine W/M, 62, 5'10", 165, Brn Hair, S&P Beard & Mustache, Hazel Eyes, Hairy, 16 tattoos on my arms, all black/old style, getting more on my forearms until they are "sleeved", Cock is 6" X 6 1/2", Lg. nuts, Brn bush, Cut. HIV Neg. Basically lonely up here in the rural upper Central Valley of Northern California and would really like to find another partner sometime to share my life with. I tend to gravitate toward blue collar guys with skinny/thin/wiry builds but it's not set in stone, I've seen some big, burly guys that rocked my world too, just as long as they're honest and good-hearted. I'm a low-maintenance kinda guy and don't care whether you have money or not, or know which fork to use for the salad (But since most of the forks I use when dining out are PLASTIC, the issue is moot anyway). I'm tired of bein' alone, I need someone to hug and someone to pal around with, a buddy to laugh at my lame jokes and someone who I can listen to when they have a bad day. And if you have a Flattop haircut, you're halfway there already! But I am NOT looking for hookups, well, I guess it would depend on who wants to hook up. I'm a college educated guy but basically a blue collar dude at heart. A Vietnam-era U.S. Navy veteran, where I served as a Radioman, Third Class Petty Officer at the U.S. Naval Communications Station, Balboa, Panama Canal Zone. Also a veteran of the active U.S. Navy Reserves at Telecomcen 119, Pt. Mugu, CA. and the active U.S. Army, California National Guard, Cavalry, where I served as a Corporal, Armor Reconnaissance Scout in the 1st Squadron/18th Cavalry, Charlie Troop of the 40th Inf. Div. in Redlands, CA. I received an Honorable discharge for each of my military services. I like to work with my hands and like most to work outdoors, which is why I mostly worked in landscaping, which I still do on and off.

My Wonderful Life.....Yeah, Right!!!

Hey Guys!

I don't know what I am doing wrong but I cannot access the group at all. When I click on the groups name I get a tribe header but nothing else. I haven't been able to add any new photos and cannot see the ones posted by other members. Also, when looking at other photos on tribe, there are no "comment" boxes that I can leave a comment on. When I click the button that says "leave a comment," nothing happens. Has anyone else had these problems? If so, does anyone know what I can do to be able to access tribe like I used to? It is really depressing not to be able to mange the tribe as I would like to. I hope everyone is doing well, hope you all have a very Happy Halloween! Talk to you later, guys!

Hey Guys!

Another weird development today when I went in for my monthly counseling session at the VA Clinic in Redding with my counselor Dr. Greg Nelson. His bookshelves were empty and I commented on it and he said that he is retiring in the middle of next month. This sucks so bad, he has been my counselor for 13 years and he knows everything about me. I am very honest with him, even telling him when I have done illegal drugs, etc. I have a final appointment with him on the 5th of next month. He said that Himself, Dr. Ross Clark, the head Psychiatrist who handles all my meds and I will talk then about my new counselor. The only thing I know is that it has to be a guy, I can't discuss my personal life with a female counselor. I also talked to him about my "Urologist" that replaced Dr. Malhoski, my original UroGen doctor. They put me with a female who isn't even a doctor, she is a "Nurse Practitioner." The first time I talked to her it was a telephone appointment, which I didn't like. And now I got a notice that she wants another phone consult in April of 2015.
I was diagnosed with "Organic Impotence" by Dr. Malhoski some tears back. Organic Impotence means that there is a physical reason for my condition, but I have never found out exactly what "physical" problem that I have. So I talked to Dr. Nelson and he gave me the number for the patient advocate down at the Sacramento VA Hospital where I went for my Urological appointments. I am going to request to be assigned to a male Urologist because it embarrasses me and makes it uncomfortable to talk about my condition with a female. Also I think a male would understand better how a man's body functions or dysfunctions. And if ANYONE is going to be sticking their fingers in me it has GOT to be another guy! I also want to find out exactly what physical problem that I have and find out if there is a treatment or surgery to make things better for me and my penis. I have Viagra, they also gave me an expensive "vacuum device" in it's own little suitcase, and later, when I tried to reorder a set of the "tension rings" for the vacuum pump, they sent me another complete system. They also gave me the medicine that I can inject directly into my penis but I don't like the effects of it, it doesn't give me a complete erection, so I no longer use those. None of these products have given me a full and hard erection, except for the vacuum pump, but the tension rings are at the base of my cock so that my cock kind of flops around at the base. Also, the rings can only be worn for a short time and they also make my cock feel cold to the touch. The Viagra has done pretty well sometimes but I have to really be turned on for it to give me somewhat satisfactory results.
The thing that is strange is that one day I was with a guy and I got an unassisted rock hard erection, so I know that it is possible. But I wake up with a chubber most days but never really fully hard. Anyway, I want to get to the bottom of the problem. Another problem is that I taker a number of medications, some of which can affect my ability to get an erection, especially some of the psych meds. So, I am looking forward to being able to have face to face appointments with a male Urologist.
There were two things that made me want to avoid contact with female doctors or nurses. I needed a digital prostate test one time and it was a female nurse. She had very long fingernails and when she stuck her finger in my ass it hurt like hell. I turned so that her finger came out and told her that what she was doing hurt and that I wanted a male to do the exam, she acted pissed but left and when the guy came he did it quickly and easily and it felt fine...even kind of good...and he was a sexy fucker too, that didn't hurt. But the real problem was when I had a kidney stone lodged in the ureter between my kidney and my bladder. It had caused my left kidney to swell to double it's usual size and it looked like it was almost exploded in a way. I was very happy that they were going to remove it that day. But, when she came in, she said something about making an appointment for the surgery in three weeks. I said "are you kidding me?" SDhe said no. I asked her if she had seen my x-rays and she said no. I got pretty hostile about then and told her that I wanted to see another doctor about it. She got pissed about that but I didn't care. I went into the next room to wait and a male doctor came in and asked me if I could get a ride home from someone because they were going to have me in surgery in 30 minutes. If I had let the female doctor make that appointment I would have lost my left kidney because of the damage done by the backed up urine and blood that couldn't pass the obstructing stone. That was the only time when I felt that the VA had really fucked up in any treatments I had ever had with them. Otherwise I have no complaints at all and they treat me very well and I am happy with their treatments, other than the ones with women. Dr. Nelson said that I could request to only be seen by male personnel and that it would not be a problem because other men had made the same requests in the past and the VA accommodated them.
Anyway, I am kind of stressed about losing Dr. Nelson as my counselor after so many years but I'm sure that whoever the guy is that replaces him will be fine once we get to know each other. There is another guy named Dr. Denny who I have always said hello to and I think he may end up being the one they pick. Whoever it is I am sure it will be cool as Dr. Clark knows me and my case very well. MY actual diagnosis is "Persistent Depressive Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder and Anxiety."
Am I a mess or WHAT?????

Hey Guys!

Well, the worst has now come true, I am going to surrender my truck to the State of California for $1,500.00. Within 24 hours of them receiving my truck it must have the fluids drained and then to be put through a crusher and compacted. The reason for this is that I was approved for the $500.00 repair assistance by the State, just like I did with my previous 1977 Ford Courier truck. The repair assistance paid for all needed work on the Ford, including the diagnosis of the problem.
The Ford did not pass smog even after $478.00 of work, so I sold it to the State for $1,000.00, which was the rate then. The problem this time is that before the repair work can start, I have to pay the shop out of my own pocket for the total costs associated with the testing and diagnosis of the emissions-related failures for my vehicle. I wouldn't know how much that would cost me until the testing and diagnosis had already been finished. Who knows what it would be but you can bet that it wouldn't be cheap at something like $85-$95 an hour for the labor. The problem is that if, after I pay for the fees to diagnose the problem, my truck may not pass the new smog test and I would be out the money, which would subtract from the $1,500.00, leaving me less to purchase a replacement truck.
So, I have submitted the request today to void the repair assistance and request the $1,500.00 vehicle retirement payment. I'm sure it will be approved, so my truck probably has about two weeks to live before it is crushed into an unrecognizable block of metal and plastic. I would love to save the chrome wheels, but if they didn't fit the new truck, whatever it will be, that will just be money out of my pocket too. I will take everything I can, such as my custom dash cover, my stereo and speakers, and probably the jack equipment as that might come in handy later. I really hate the idea of losing my truck but at this point I just don't really have much choice. The odometer no longer functions and the heater core is shot and it leaks inside the truck. I was going to just block the heater hoses off but that would still leave me without a heater and defroster this winter.
So, my hoped for plan is to look for an OLDER truck, preferably prior to 1975, which would make it permanently exempt from the smog control laws of the State of California. Maybe a '50's truck with a simple 4 or 6 cylinder engine. I really want to get a truck, but if that isn't going to happen I could settle on getting a 50's to 60's era Cadillac Coupe de Ville or Fleetwood. I always have loved Cadillacs. I had a white 63 Coupe de Ville and also later had a white 73 Eldorado with black leather bucket seats and a 501 ci engine and front wheel drive. It was a beautiful car but at 110 MPH on the highway to Palm Springs you could almost see the gas gauge moving. But it was powerful, smooth and quiet and had a stereo system that rocked!
So, that's that. I will let you guys know as soon as I get another vehicle. Wish me luck cuz I'm gonna need it!

Hey Guys!

I am supposed to renew my registration on my truck this month and every other year the DMV requires a smog test on any vehicle newer than 1975. My truck has been running like a watch, very smooth and quiet, and I thought it would pass the smog check easily. It didn't. It passed all the visual and functional tests performed by the smog check garage, but it failed the emissions tests and is now considered a "gross polluter." I'm not sure what all these numbers mean, but these were the results of the two tests that matter, HC (PPM) and CO (%). At 889 RPM, the HC (PPM) was 432. Maximum for this test is 150 and everything past 300 is a gross polluter. The CO (%) was 6.48. Maximum for this test is 1.20 and anything above 2.70 is a gross polluter. At 2677 RPM, the HC (PPM) was 524. Maximum allowable is 180, gross polluter at 330. The CO (%) was 8.42. Maximum 1.20, gross polluter at 2.70.
Like I said, I'm not sure why these numbers are so high, the guy at the shop said that my engine was running too rich. Anyway, this was the worst case scenario for me, especially because you all know how much I like my truck, not to mention the cost of fixing whatever is wrong. The State of California has a program to help low income people like me (read pathetic at my age!), up to a maximum of $500.00, get whatever work done on my vehicle to get it to pass the smog test. If that fails to correct the problem, they will retire the truck (read junk and crush) and pay me $1,500.00 for it. I did this same program, with the old 1977 Ford Courier truck I used to have, before. The repair assistance didn't fix the problem and so it was retired and I got $1,000.00, $750.00 of which I used to buy my current truck.
I don't know what I am going to do if it can't be fixed. I HATE the idea that my truck, in it's beautiful and clean condition with Z24i engine, 5 speed manual trans., custom dash cover, chrome wheels, FM/CD player, new $140.00 windshield and a new head gasket, etc., might be crushed and destroyed soon. Plus, I don't think it will be easy, even at $1,500.00, to find a truck (I always drive trucks) of similar quality and condition. So, anyway, that is where things stand as of now. Another really fucked up thing is that I still owe in excess of $300.00 to my Dad for the loan he gave me when I had to have the head gasket replaced at $1,100.00! I looked online to see if it was possible to get a rebuilt Japanese engine. I found one like mine, a 2.4L Z24 rebuilt long block engine for $1,350.00, not including shipment and installation which would probably be at least another $1,000.00. But that would still require me to come up with the funds to buy and install the engine in the first place. I'll let you guys know what happens when I find out the results of everything. This REALLY SUCKS!!!
