My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Saturday and going to the Escape

Well it is Saturday and I am going to the Escape tonight, now I don’t normally include my male side in my blogs but today is an exception. As I said in my last blog, I had some stuff to do today well actually it is working in my yard, something I have wanted to do for a few years and just didn’t have time. before my dad passed away, I would take my parents to Laughlin every spring and on one of the trips I had been talking about planning a palm tree in my front yard and both my parents thought it was a great idea. Well I decided to do it so today I got up before 6am before it got to hot to start my yard work, removing a 3 foot by 25-foot strip of grass on the very front of my yard by the sidewalk and planting 3 palm trees, 1 for my dad, 1 for my mom and 1 for me. Took longer than I thought and I didn’t finish till about 3pm. Now I bring this up as I kind of keep to myself with my neighbors but as I was working right by the sidewalk on the street a couple of them stopped by as I was working and talked to me and the new neighbor across the street to the right came over and introduced himself to me and we talked for a little while. Nothing was said about my dressing so still don’t know if they know but I suspect they do, but this is the most interaction I have had with my neighbors at one time. will include a picture of my project at the bottom.

Well it was 3pm when I finished and I was hot and sweaty but time to start getting ready to go out as I had posted I would be at the Escape around 5pm as Nicole was in town tonight and wanted to meat early before karaoke starts and it gets loud and a couple others said they would be early. I took a nice long shower and started getting ready. Now I was a little slower getting ready as I am a little sore as I don’t normally do work like this. I was all ready by 4:45. I grabbed my purse and was out my front door to my car in the driveway and was on my way.

I got to the Escape about 5:10 and had to park on the street about a ½ block down and walk back. I went in and Tina was already there sitting at the bar so I stood and talked to her for a bit. We went over and got one of the small tables before they got to busy, besides the chairs at these tables have backs which are way more comfortable. It wasn’t long and Nicole showed up. It was so great to see them in person, I haven’t seen Nicole in person in over a year and a half. Well Jan and Lynn also showed up early as did Michelle so we kind of pulled the next table over close to ours as these tables are really for 4 people and we now had 6. We ordered food and yes, I got the Chicken sandwich which is really good and probably healthier than a burger.

Michelle and Lynn both played the video poker machines for a little while and both won some money, 1 about $30 and the other $4 but still a win. When I play slot machines it is always the machine that wins. Renee also showed up which was nice but as we had a bigger group it was hard to talk with everyone as we were spread out a little. the zoom meetings are fun but just not the same as talking in person. Now it was pretty busy here for as early as it was and the group of ladies at the next table would cheer when ever someone new came in and after a couple times, they had the whole bar doing it, almost like in the old TV show Cheers where everyone yelled Norm when he came into the bar. It was pretty cool as I am sure it made people feel welcome when they came in.

We talked for a while and caught up, Nicole is in town for the weekend with her wife and was able to get out for a few hours tonight and will be back down on Wednesday night and hopes to make dinner so I am trying to figure something out on the east side of Portland to make it easier for her to get there. The Wednesday night dinners are taking some thought now as some of the places we went are closed, some have smaller table size and with more restaurants closed those that are open seem busier but then they may have less seating also. Any way I am trying to find a few new places but it is nice to be able to make reservations but it seems more restaurants are not doing reservations either. I really would like to get a bigger mix of places we go so we have a greater reach of interaction with people. We have talked about this in our zoom meetings and we all feel that the more interaction we can have with people the better as it lets them see we are no different then they are. I think that is why I like going to Starbucks so much.

It was a nice evening and soon it was 7:30 and karaoke started up and it got louder and it was hard to talk even with those right next to you. Tina and Nicole stuck it out for a little but bit by a little after 8 they were done. I figured I would stay till 9 and then go home as I am really tired not only from getting up so early today but the yard work I did. It is fun to listen to some of the singers well mainly the ones who sing songs I know. By 9 it was really busy in here almost like it was before the shutdowns. Well I was thinking of leaving but Patty showed up so I stayed to talk with her. yes, I can easily get distracted from leaving, I hardly ever leave when I planned to. It was almost 10 and just Jan, Lynn, Patty and I were left and I was ready to leave so I went and paid my bill and came back sat down to listen to one last song. Well as I sat there someone hugged me from behind, it turned out to be Dan. He had come out to see who all were here. Well I couldn’t leave now as I had to talk with him a little, it has been over 2 years since I have seen him. We talked for a little while but I was really feeling the long day. It was about 10:30 I just couldn’t take it and said my goodbyes and walked out to my car and

headed for home.

I got home and sat down on the couch for a minute to rest before going up to bed and the next thing I knew I woke up and it was after 1am, I had fallen asleep. I made my way upstairs and washed my makeup off and got into bed. Tomorrow is another day and yes some more Susan time.

Stay safe and be happy with who you are. Thanks for reading my blog and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.
