Built Ford Tough

Hassan has a sweatshirt he bought here that says "Built Ford Tough." It's my favorite color - BLUE. He gave it to me and told me why he bought it.

Hassan lives in a really nice neighborhood in Silver Spring, Maryland - just outside of DC. Because he lives in a really nice area, there are many different types of people who live in the area - specifically gay men.

Hassan was telling me that the "men" in the building have been very friendly towards him - overly friendly to the point that it made him feel uncomfortable, especially the one receptionist.

So he went out and bought a nice steel blue sweatshirt with the "Built Ford Tough" on it. He wore it to let the "men" in the building know that he is straight. Only it is too small on him so it works against him.

Ma'salaam,

Marian - LOL Oh is that FUNNY!!! I am just cracking up over it.

I am so happy that you are having a wonderful time here! Did you get a lot of snow? We have about 6-7 inches here! :D

I am sending you an email with my phone number. I would love to chat!! Let me know when you are going to call so I can get offline (I don't like people calling cause usually they call when Zane is sleeping.)

Love and hugs!!

On the other hand, gay men might find those words intriguing!

Val - I haven't had a chance to get on the internet. This is only my 2nd time in one week. I will send you my phone number and please send yours to me. I'll be in western PA beginning Feb. 3 for 1 week to visit my one sister so I will be sure to hook up with you on the phone while I'm there. Love.
Layla - It's really not as bad as it seems. I don't care what people do in their personal lives. I will send you my phone number so I can try to meet you in western PA next week. I'll be in McMurray PA beginning Feb 3 for a week. Love and prayers to you and Zane.

Evoluationary - Yes it is intriguing and what people do is really their own business. Despite my appearance, I am quite open minded.

Karen - I just sent you my phone numbers. I haven't been on the internet in about 5 days so I have a lot of catching up to do. Love.
