This weekend I did some work in the garden. Dirty, difficult work. Adding sprinklers to each rose bush that we planted to keep our dog off of the back hill. Julia Childs’ Roses, in case you are curious. I am not a rose kind of Butch. Not much into gardening. I have a black thumb, … Read more
Who knows what I mean when I say “chosen family?” These are people that you choose to think of and treat like family. You weren’t born with or adopted into them. You choose each other. I am an only child. Ask any of my past girlfriends or my wife, they will tell you. “Butch is … Read more
Antigone Rising, an all girl, boot stomping, alt country band, released their new music video for their song “Everywhere is Home” from the lesbian mob comedy feature film “Alto.” Alto is a quirky love story set in the midst of an unanticipated run-in with the New York mafia.

Tonight, I drew the winner of The Dinah weekend pass giveaway. Check out the video as the drama unfolds. It’s Butch to enter contests with ButchOnTap. Thanks for Being Butch!
Perhaps it is telling that I started this post as 10 things. I had to keep going. And, I could keep going further. But blog best practices suggest that lists should be limited to 10.
