Been a while.. But.. here is to "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness"

So..last time I wrote was in February and before I headed back to Missouri for my second date. Does anyone really care or want to know what or who I have in my life now? I know it has been an exciting summer for me and I hope for all you as well.
How many have been going to rodeos this year? Damn.. Not me.. Last Christmas things got weird around work and I think my owners have health issues they are not willing to admit to... I could guess cancer and that would explain a lot.. BUT.. needless to say I went for months without a day off or I just took a few hours here and there and I was accused of being a lazy bum. No matter how much you hurt something like that being said can not be taken back. From that point I was looking for a change. While all this was going on I had met Chris who I have been talking to on here for over a year. We went on a date over my Christmas break and it was awesome. I went back on the 16th of February for 4 days and it was short but amazing. Work got really crazy in March and April and when Chris came in May for a 10 day visit I only got off 1 and 1/2 days to show him around... It was a great time with him here but my job was just shit. Come June I told them I was leaving and I started a new job. With this job came a move to Cottonwood down closer to my son who lives in Sedona. New apartment and such and some new friends and reconnect with some old ones but I can say now that there are many more gay friends here in the 3 city area.
So now I am a tow truck driver and working hard but it is great to be out and about and working with my hands and getting a tan along with a lot of sweat!
My son is so happy to have be near again and I can't get him to go spend anytime with his mom but that's not my problem. This next Sunday Chris comes out yet again for an 8 day trip and I have off 4 of those 8 days.. Big change from before.
Not sure what we will do but I have a little BBQ planned here on Saturday the 18th so people can meet Chris and we can have a little house warming party. I also want to show off that I can cook.. at least a little..LOL
In October in I will travel back to Missouri to my daughters wedding and I know its only 3 short days, but I want to spend as much time with Chris as I can. My folks will be at the wedding so I guess they will meet Chris. I will not hide him from them even though I know they are not happy with who I am or as they say.. "My Choice".. gotta love them and I do.. just wish they had stayed a little democratic.. as they get older they seem to turn more and more republican... LOL
Ya have to put yourself out there.. Sometimes we look hard for something or an idea of what we want and what we "really need" is right in front of us and we never see it.. Good thing he said something to me or I never would have woke up. So here is to Chris taking the first step and telling me that I should be interested in him.. I love you Babe!
As life goes.. I am doing this different this time.. slow.. steady... building a friendship.. but with love.. and sex.. and all the gravy that I can put on top of it... and we are both so very happy.
Many say.. but you are in AZ and he is in MO... one of you have to move.. I say..why??? to keep track of each other..? to do what..? Can't you love from another state.. can't you build on what you have from another state? When you are building a lifetime whats a few days.. months.. years in the plan??? If it is right it will work out.. stop being in such a damn hurry.. We all hurry.. we all rush to find what we think we need... stop.. slow down.. enjoy it.. savor the flavor.. We jump into something and later think..what were we thinking..? I want to know.. I want to feel it.. I want to be sure.. and be happy.. and know.. my partner.. is my soulmate.. and most of all... my friend.. ready to be there.. for a lifetime..
Hugs to you all.. be safe.. keep the faith..
Chuck and Chris
