Rise and shine...



"'M gonna go back ta the campsite, Hank. I'll shower when yer done."


"Wha'? Why?"


"Didn' look at the showers last nigh' when we got here. All one big room. No dividers. Ain't never seen one like this 'fore."


"So wha's the big deal, Ed? Ya ain't got no reason ta be shy."


"If'n I gotta shower with ya... any other guys tha' come in... well... uh... they migh' end up knowin' how I feel 'bout ya right off."


"Jeez, Ed... 'm flattered 'n all... 'n I know ya ain't old... but... wouldn' think a quick shower with me in a place like this would get a rise outta ya tha' easy."


"Jus' don' wanna risk it..."


"C'mon, Ed... I really wanna get goin' ta day... Don' wanna miss tha' low tide... 'n you waitin' fer me is jus' gonna take a whole lot longer..."


"...Okay... but ya gotta promise ta stay clear 'cross the room from me."


"Ya got yer self a deal."


...

......


"Stop lookin' at it, Hank."


"Jus' checkin'..."


"I swear... if'n ya don' cut it out..."


"Wha? Jus' figure I should keep an eye on it fer ya... alert ya if'n I start ta see anythin' suspicious-like."


"Hank..."


"Wha'?"


"Ya know damn well wha'. Cut it out."


"Lips are dry. Jus' tryin' ta moisten them."


"Humidity's 199%... Yer lips ain't dry."


"Yeah they are. 'N don' look now... but I think it's startin' ta act up a l'il..."


"Hank..."


"Yep. Definitely somethin' happenin'..."


"Stop it, Hank..."


"Now how in the hell am I s'posed ta keep an eye on it if'n ya go turnin' yer back ta me... Although tha' does present some other interestin' possibilities..."


"Cut it out, Hank."


"Uh oh... will ya lookit tha'... Whatever ya got seems ta be catchin'..."


"Hank... Dammit... Some other fellas migh' come in..."


"Doubt it. We're the only ones crazy 'nough ta be up this early... no pun intended."


"Lotta other folks come here ta look at them tide pools too..."


"'M sorry... didya say somethin', Ed? 'M gettin' a l'il distracted here..."


"'M leavin', Hank..."


"Ed... Ed...? C'mon back Ed... I'll stop..."


...


"So... Ya gonna stay here or are ya gonna dry yer self off 'n come with me, dumbass?"


"Comin' with ya... Definitely comin' with ya... Or shortly after ya. Or possibly a l'il 'fore ya... Varies some. Usually..."


"You go right ahead 'n keep yammerin'... I'll jus' head on back 'n start withou' ya..."


"Wait up Ed... 'm righ' behind ya..."




A little while later...

 


"So... Ya jus' gonna sit there 'n look at it?"

"Nope. Migh' take a picture of it too... After all... it's an amazin' sight."

"Put the camera down, Hank."


"Why? 'S a digital camera. No film ta develop or nothin' like tha' ta worry 'bout. 'N it'd jus' be fer us."


"Fer us?"


"Okay, okay... fer me. C'mon, Ed..."


"Put the damn camera down, Hank."


"We're on vacation... 'm s'posed ta take pictures of all the sights... And tha' there is definitely a major attraction."


"We won' be on vacation fer much longer if'n ya don' erase tha'."


"Okay... okay... Jeez, Ed... ya ain't no fun sometimes..."


"Lemme see tha'... How do I look 'n make sure ya erased it?"


"Don' trust me, huh?"


"Not no further than I could throw ya."


"Here... Ya push tha' thing tha' way 'n ya push this ta go back through 'em."


"...Uh... Hank...?"


"Yeah?"


"How come ya got so many a me? Thought ya were always jus' takin' pictures a the scenery 'n all..."


"Guess maybe yer always walkin' inta the view..."


"Guess maybe I better try 'n stay outta the way."


"Nah... tha's okay... scenery's a lot better if'n yer in it."


"I don' got hardly no pictures a you..."


"'S okay... I ain't very photogenic."


"You fishin' fer a compliment?"


"Maybe."


"C'mere, dumbass ."


...


......


..........


............


...............

..................


.....................


...........................


"Goddamn..."


"I'll second tha'... 'n throw in a Thank ya Jesus fer good measure. Think this here sea air agrees with ya, Ed."


"Think maybe it does."


"Uh... Ed?"


"Yeah?"


"Were it jus' my over-active 'magination... or did you take a picture when I was...?"


"Don' got no idea wha' yer talkin' 'bout."


"Gimme the camera."


"Jus' did it fer you."


"Fer me, huh?"


"Yep."


"'S all blurry."


"Ain't no photographer. 'Sides... yer head were movin' 'n my hands were kinda shaky."


"Well... ya know wha' they say 'bout practice. Guess you'll jus' have ta try again next time."


"Maybe."


"Definitely."


"Uh... Hank?"


"Yeah?"


"Sorry ya missed yer low tide."


"I sure as hell ain't. 'Sides... Ain't real low 'til tomorrow anyways... But it migh' not be too late ta go see some a them starfish ta day... Heard they ain't gen'rally out too deep. Then again 'm seein' plenty a stars righ' now. Maybe them starfish can wait."


"Sea stars."


"Tha's wha' I said... 'm seein' stars... Ya hit yer head on somethin', Ed?"


"No, dumbass... I didn' hit my head. Read a sign... they call 'em 'sea stars' now... S-E-A stars."


"So... Starfish ain't starfish no more 'n Pluto ain't no planet no more 'n the sun can kill ya 'n I dunno wha' else... Makes ya wonder wha's next..."


"Dunno, Hank... kinda like the name 'sea stars'..."


"Ya do, huh?"


"Yep. 'S got a nice ring ta it."


"Guess it's okay by me then too. But 'm still ticked off 'bout Pluto."


"Yeah. Me too."


---



"Hey, Hank?"


"Yeah, Ed?"


"Ya know how yer always offerin' ta take pictures a other couples ta gether 'n all?"


"Yeah..."


"Ya think maybe next time... uh...
maybe next time you could ask 'em ta take our picture after yer done takin' theirs?"


"......"


"Hank...?"


"Sure, Ed... I'd like tha' a whole lot."

Seaing stars... A love story
To Ed, from Hank


If you'd like to listen along, open this too:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1bjkWc6mhLg




"Strangers in the night


exchanging glances


                             


wond'ring in the night


what were the chances


we'd be sharing love


before the night was through



                 


Something in your eyes
was so inviting


Something in your smile
was so exciting


         


Something in my heart
told me I must
have you


Strangers in the night





Two lonely people
we were strangers in the night


Up to the moment
when we said our first hello





little did we know





love was just a glance away


a warm embracing dance away





And ever since that night


we've been together





Lovers at first sight


in love forever





It turned out so right





for strangers in the night




la la la la la




la la la la la la la la la la la la





la la la la la la la la la la la la





la la la la la


Love was just a glance away
a warm embracing dance away





Ever since that night


we've been together





Lovers at first sight


in love forever





It turned out so right





for

strangers

in

the

night









Dooby-dooby-doo




do do do dee da
da da da da daiyiyia..."

"Ya didn' smoke some a tha' stuff

BTW... No starfish, oops, I mean sea stars, were harmed or moved during the making of 'Seeing stars... A love story.' Hank just photographed them as they were.

Hey Laly!
Hank swears he didn't even take one little puff. ;D And I don't think them seastars even noticed Hank pokin' his camera into their business. Glad you enjoyed it!

oh GOSH, Hank is SO naughty, too bad he didn't have the camera in the shower. SO will Ed ever get a photo of Hank (I bet Hank is very photogetic)

now about those naughty sea stars. I felt like I should have looked away

more please. I love Hank and Ed

Hey there,
Glad you enjoyed it (and the naughty sea stars too :) )
Ed and Hank won't tell me if Ed ever got a photo of Hank. And Hank did try to go back and at least get a picture of that shower (even if it was without Ed), but every time he went there were other fellas in it so he didn't think it was very wise to start taking photos.

P.S. I do think Hank is very photogenic. (Although I might be a little biased in that regard.)

Sweet

I'm happy you are enjoying your time on your trip and starfish or whatever were always wonderful. Yes those public showers that are open like that Pat absolutely will not do for about the same reasons. I love them and heck I'm proud of my flag pole when it rises. HMM maybe some of Hank and Ed's pictures will come up on gay.com or on lifeout.com or some of those oteher dirty little sites. OH my Joe is telling too much. Have a good trip and keep exploring this great world of ours. Joe

Re: Sweet

Hey Joe,
LOL! I can just imagine Ed's reaction if any of their pictures turned up on gay.com or lifeout.com. I think that would be trouble Hank couldn't talk himself out of. And Ed now checks out the shower first thing at every campground (Well, those that have them anyway) just so he's not in for any surprises.

Gives a whole new meaning to innuendo

though how you know exactly where a sea star's end is, I'm not sure.:-) Clearly, though, renaming them gave them ideas--now they all want to be in pictures.:-D But I know just how Hank feels about Pluto.

I swear, I love Hank almost as much as Ed does.

"So... Ya gonna stay here or are ya gonna dry yer self off 'n come with me, dumbass?"


"Comin' with ya... Definitely comin' with ya... Or shortly after ya. Or possibly a l'il 'fore ya... Varies some. Usually..."


"You go right ahead 'n keep yammerin'... I'll jus' head on back 'n start withou' ya..."


"Wait up Ed... 'm righ' behind ya..."


'Course, Hank only made it out of childhood cause he was too adorable to kill (and probably too fast too catch).;-) He makes Ed laugh, too.

Ed, though, sneaks up on ya. A regular ninja heart-stealer: looks like a tough old bird, then he does this to Hank: "Ya think maybe next time... uh... maybe next time you could ask 'em ta take our picture after yer done takin' theirs?" Just might love him almost as much as Hank does.:-)

But only almost. Cause what I love best about em is how much they love each other, no matter where they are.

Re: Gives a whole new meaning to innuendo

LOL! "Clearly, though, renaming them gave them ideas--now they all want to be in pictures." I guess 'sea stars' does have a more glamorous sound to it. (It's probably gone to their heads, only I can't figure out where those are either.)

I think Hank probably was adorable as a child, but he most likely survived because he was definitely too fast to catch. :D

And this was so sweet: "What I love best about em is how much they love each other, no matter where they are." I do believe you made Ed blush a lovely shade of red. (Hank's still laughing picturing Ed as a ninja.)

Who'd a thought sea stars (are they really called that now- wow you learn something new every day!) could be so cute romantic and ,er, sexy. I don't know about Hank but I feel like I smoked something and I gave up ten years ago.
Lovely to hear from the boys. Hope they post more pics soon. Must be some 'interesting rocks' due huh?

"I don't know about Hank but I feel like I smoked something and I gave up ten years ago." LOL! Hank's happy he could take you along for the trip. Glad you liked it! Sadly, Hank hasn't come across too many interesting rocks lately, but he hopes to come across something interesting sooner or later...

Sea Stars

Mornin'.

Well, the seashore won't be the same now, especially clambering over the rocks and seeing the sea stars/starfish. So glad Hank brought the digital camera with them, and they are willing to share most of their pictures ...though the others would be mighty interesting, too!

Hope you and they continue to have a wonderful and safe trip. Looks like a lot of ground and sand is being covered.

Thanks again.

Re: Sea Stars

Hey there,
Glad you enjoyed it! Sorry Hank can't share any of those other pictures - Ed would most definitely object strongly to that. :)

Thanks for your good wishes and thoughts! And have fun watching those sea stars...
