My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Thursday shopping and lunch with Barb

It is Thursday and today I am going shopping with Barb, I am picking her up at 11 and then we will be off. I got up and got dressed taking my time. It was about 10:15 when I left and headed for Barb. She had texted me her address and of course I was using my GPS to find it. I got to where she lives and texted her, I was there and she came right up and we were off. Our first stop was Jantzen Beech and we went to the TJ Max, I am not sure I have ever been there before. We went in and started off in the shoe section, they had some cute shoes but not in our size, once you get to a size 10 the selection was really small. It is hard when you have feet and I am luckier than most as I wear a size 10 to 11 depending on the toe width. Some of our girls in the group need size 13 or more. Unfortunately, the average size for a woman is a 7 to 8. We moved into the clothes section and again their selection of clothes here was more for the average size woman, in other words smaller of course Barb is that size so she found several things she wanted to try on so as she did that I walked around and went and looked at the purses. I really don’t need one as I like my purse and can’t get that excited about having a bunch of purses for different outfits or event, I guess I am not as female on that part. On the other hand, my lady’s wallet I have had for probably 15 years and I found a couple cute ones and on actually has a wrist strap so I could use it as a clutch purse also and it was only $7.99 so I decided to get it.

Barb was still trying on clothes so I walked around a little more and found their cosmetic section or at least that’s what they called it. They really didn’t have much but they did have some false Eye lashes. Now I have some someone gave me years ago and I have tried them but I the ones oi have, have a really thick band and don’t fit right and feel heavy so I have never worn them out. the ones they have here have a really narrow band and actually look pretty nice and they are 6 pairs for $5.99 so I decided to get them also and try them again. I really do like Mascara and it gives my thick full lashes but I can’t find a mascara that lengthens them. I will probably try them tonight and if they look good and I can get them on I may try then tomorrow when I go shopping with Peggy. Barb couldn’t find anything that fit so we went and I bought my items and then we left and headed for Lloyd Center.

We got there about 12:30 and parked, Barb had to make a call so while she was doing that, I took the opportunity to get a quick selfie before we went in as the sun was actually out. we went in and walked around a little talking and then headed for the food court to get some lunch. I can’t think of the name of the place we went but we both got Teriyaki Chicken on rice and vegetables. We then found a table where we could watch people and had a nice lunch, Barb used the chopsticks but as I wanted to eat my food and not throw it on my lap, I used a fork. We had a wonderful lunch and must have sat there for a good hour just talking. I really do like going out shopping with someone else, just 2 girls out for a day of shopping.

It was now time to do a little more shopping but before we left, I got 1 more selfie in the food court. We walked around a little more and found ourselves at H&M looking at clothes, Barb was looking for a nice pair of skinny jeans and I was just looking at everything. I found a sweater dress but it looked really short but I thought maybe I could use it as a top with my leggings so I tried it on. They were a little tight and really to long for a top but not long enough for a dress at least on me. Barb found a few pants to try on and I wondered around and all their dresses were really short. Finally, I did find a couple dresses that were longer so I held them up and they came almost to my knees. I started going through the sizes and they ranged from 0 to size 4. Just not my lucky day. Barb did find a couple pairs of pants so she bought them.

It was about 3 and I still had to drive Barb home and then get home myself and it would mean rush hour traffic so we called it a day. Barb’s place is on my way home but it would mean getting off the freeway in rush hour and then getting back on so it would take a while but so worth it. It was a really wonderful day, Thanks Barb we will have to do it again. It was after 4:30 when I got close to home and I thought about going to Starbucks but there just wasn’t time as I have to be someplace by 5:30 and I still have to clean up and remove all traces of Susan so I went straight home.

Now I am looking forward to shopping with Peggy tomorrow. I will meet her at 10:30. Thanks for reading and be sure and read my most recent blog to see what is new in my life.

Wednesday night dinner at Southland Whiskey Kitchen

It is Wednesday night and our group, well a few of us are meeting for dinner at the Southland Whiskey Kitchen. We have gone here several times and the food is wonderful and mid-priced, $12 to $25 depending on what you want. I am really looking forward to it as I have not been out since last Wednesday nights dinner, family issues to take care of. Looks like it my Susan time will be limited again so I have to really make the most of it when I get it. But tonight, I will get a few hours with my friends over a nice dinner and what can be better then that. I got home about 4:30 and started getting ready right away. I really do look forward to being Susan, going out with friends and especially getting ready, deciding on an outfit, what dress and heels and of course how to do my makeup. My makeup is pretty much the same as I have found what works for me after years of trial and error, really the only thing I do different is how intense I do my eyes and which color of lipstick. For tonight it will be a little more intense and dramatic. Now it is hard to explain why I enjoy doing my makeup so much as I know woman who hate doing their makeup but for me it is relaxing and enjoyable. I have talked to several girls who feel the same way and yet I don’t know why I feel this way, but that really doesn’t matter. I enjoy it and that is good enough for me.

It was about 6 when I was ready and on my way. I got in my car and opened the garage door and was on my way. I think back a few years and I would carefully look outside and make sure no one was out and if they were wait for them to go inside which during the summer sucked as sometimes I would wait an hour. Now I just go. Now I am not saying I am coming out to everyone, I am not going up to my neighbors and saying guess what I am Susan part time but I am also not hiding it, if they see me they see me so be it. I can’t tell you how wonderful it feels to look at life and who I am this way but it did take me many years to get to this point and a lot of help from my friends.

I got downtown a little after 6:30 and found a parking spot about 3 blocks away and again a few years ago this would have terrified me but I just got out of my car and went and paid for parking and walked to the restaurant, the funny thing is I really wasn’t even thinking about how I was dressed or being Susan, I was just me. I got to Southland Whiskey Kitchen a little before 7 and went in. They were not that busy and the lady asked how many in our group. I said 4 for sure maybe 6, as I was talking with her Melissa n=and her wife came in and Barb right after, this is our core Wednesday night group right now. We got a booth that was big enough we could squeeze 2 more in if we needed which we did. Dee and Gina showed up, Dee is a local girl in our Group and Gina a girl from the Seattle area who was down visiting. They are both going on our Mexican Cruise in October and are sharing a room. I think this was a chance for them to meet before the cruise as Cassandra has been trying to help some of the girls find cabinmates for the cruise to help with the cost. I think I have met Dee before but this was the first time I met Gina and they are both really nice.

We talked for a little bit before we ordered dinner. This really is a wonderful social event as in smaller groups it is more personal and easier to talk with everyone. Don’t get me wrong as I really like and want more girls to come out but if they don’t it is still a wonderful event. Now one of the things besides the cruise we talked about was our group and how to get more girls interested in going out and should we even keep doing the Wednesday night dinners if we can’t get more girls to come out. Now my feeling on this is a big yes, even if it is just a few girls it is worth it. I think going out to these places and letting people see us and interact with us in even a small way is good as they can see we are no different then them, we are just out for a nice dinner and conversation with friends. It takes the mystery out I think. The other reason is to be out with my friends. For me it is not about where we go but my friends ii go with. For those who don’t know I don’t drink, never really have and I am not a bar person. I have maybe gone to bars a dozen times as my male self. Susan goes to these places because her friends go there and for better or worse when we first started going out it really was LGBT bars where we could go and be safe and feel accepted. Over the years that has changed.

When I first started going out it was to go as a group for safety and support, over the years I have become more comfortable and confident as Susan and pretty mush go where I want and will go by myself. I really no longer need the group for that but I do need them for the friendships I have made. My best friends are in this group, and some are more like sisters, family. The going out now is to see them and spend time with them. I really am lucky to have such wonderful people in my life and I would not be who I am without them.

We ordered dinner and our food came and it was wonderful as always, I would recommend Southland Whiskey Kitchen for a good dinner. The staff here is wonderful and our waitress remembered a few of us from last time, I guess we are a little more memorable then the average customer but still makes you feel good. It was just before 9 when we finished and paid our bills, we did talk a little longer till just after 9 before leaving. We said our goodbyes and I walked back to my car and again I really never thought about being Susan or how I was dressed I was just me. I really think if you can get to that point people accept you better as you come across as nothing is wrong and this is just who you are.

Thanks for reading and be sure and keep up with me and my life in my most recent blog.

Wednesday night dinner at Mother Bistro

It is Wednesday night and our dinner tonight I at Mothers Bistro. We have gone here several times and the food is always good and the staff wonderful. It has been a long week and I am really looking forward to some time with my friends and of course Susan time. It is so relaxing and enjoyable and always make me feel good. Now I am not sure who all will be there as so far, I have only 2 replies that are yes and 1 maybe so most likely it will be 3 or 4 of us but either way it will be fun. I got home and started getting ready as I wanted to enjoy the time. Now for tonight it will be hot outs as it is in the low 90’s right now. I went with my black & white summer dress tonight. I was all ready by 6 and on my way as I wanted to be a little early incase others showed up.

I got downtown Portland by 6:30 and found a parking soot right in front. I went in and they were really busy, the lady asked me if I had a reservation. I said now and she asked for a name and how many and she would get me on the list. Guess it was good I got here early. I told her 4 to 6 as I really didn’t know. Now a couple times we have been here when they were busier but never this busy. Melissa showed up next followed by Barb and Kimberly so everyone who replied about tonight made it. It was a little after 7 but they were able to fit us in, kind of in a corner but we had 4 seats and could fit 1 more on the end if we had any last-minute arrivals which we didn’t as it was just the 4 of us for dinner.

We all sat and talked for a little while before we ordered. We talked about our Mexican cruise coming up in October and of course Wednesday night dinners. We are trying to figure out a way to get more girls out on Wednesday nights. Should we try to find other restaurants, should they be more upscale or more affordable, the places we go for the most part you can get a nice meal for $12 to $20 maybe higher depending on your drink choice. Should we try different nights which also has good and bad. I really do like the idea of going the same night as that way everyone knows which night it will be. I really wish some of our members would give some input. I do know we do like going to dinner and even if we don’t get more people I would hate to see it go away. Maybe I will do a post to see what our members would like to do. Several years ago, we all really needed the group to go out but Portland has become so accepting it is easy to go out on your own and I think that may have something to do with it.

Our food came and it was wonderful as always. I got to talk a little with Kimberly which was nice as this is only the second time I have seen her out, she is one of our newer members. She actually went to The Escape the weekend I was sick, I think only 1 other girls showed up that night so I feel a little bad about that. It really was nice to be out with my friends.

We finished dinner about 8:30 so we still had a little time before they closed at 9 so we sat and talked a little. As we were talking Dimond Dee, Rachal, and Kim came in. they had been down at CC Slaughters and decided to swing by and see who was here so we talked with them for a little while before the went back to CC Slaughters. When we had bigger groups on Wednesday some of the girls would go here after dinner. I get up way to early in the morning to stay out to late so I don’t. maybe if we ate close I would walk through and say hi to those I knew but that would be it. Any way Wednesday nights are still one of my favorite nights out even though they are shorter as with a smaller group in a more intimate setting you really get to talk more and get to know each other better.

It was a little after 9 when we left. It was a fun evening and it is always sad to see it come to an end but I know I will see them again soon and we will enjoy another fun evening out. I really have made some wonderful friends as Susan.

Thanks for reading and be sure and keep up with what’s new on my blog. My blogs are going to my Facebook page again but I still have no idea whay all of my blog post I shared on my Facebook page before July 7th went away and there is no trace of them and I have no way or idea of how to get them back on Facebook. So sad.

Memorial Day and I have the day off and that means some Susan time

It is Monday and I have the day off so Susan gets some time out. Now I am meeting Barb, Melissa and her wife for lunch at 1 pm so I have the whole morning. My plan was to get up early and go to Starbucks for a few hours till the mall opened and then do a little shopping till it was time to meet my friends for lunch. It was the perfect plan for the day or at least I thought. Well things didn’t go as I planned as I got up late so I was behind to start. It was almost 10 by the time I was done with my makeup and getting dressed. Now for today I wanted to ware my corset. Well I had it just about on and as I tightened when you guessed it the ties broke and so I had to take it off and fix it and start over. I got it off and redid the ties and put it back on but was having trouble getting it tight. Turns out I missed one of the eyelets and it just won’t tighten up and so once again off it came and I redid the ties making sure not to miss an eyelet and once more on it went and this time I could get it tightened up. It was now a little after 10 am and I was ready to leave and go have fun. Now I had a choice. I could drive to the mall and have maybe an hour and skip Starbucks or go to Starbucks and have almost 2 hours. Well I needed to do my Blog from Sunday and so Starbucks won out.

I got to Starbucks and went in and got a drink and sat down at a table and started on my blog, I really do like the idea of writing my blog as Susan when I am out. It just seems to make the circle complete. Now I had been there about 10 minutes and the same lady I know that I saw yesterday came in again today. What are the odds, again I just kept my head down and kept doing what I was doing. She got her drink and left. I still find it funny that in all the times I have come here I have never seen her here accept for the last 2 days. I stayed here till a little after noon before heading for my lunch with my friends.

I got downtown Portland about 12:30 and found a parking spot about a block away from where we were having Lunch, Papa Haydn. Now being the middle of the day, a holiday and a nice warm day outside there were all kinds of people walking the streets and I was just another person out. I went in and got a table and it was only a few minutes later Barb showed up. We talked as we waited for Melissa and her wife to show up, they arrived right at 1 pm. We talked a little mire before ordering lunch. Now the food here at Papa Haydn is good but they have a limited menu. The real reason for going here is their dessert menu, they have awesome desserts. Melissa and her wife split a dessert as did Barb and I. it was so good and so rich. I didn’t even eat half of it. It really was a wonderful lunch and after noon. It was after 2:30 when we finished and all said our goodbyes and left.

I got home about 3:30 so I had to rush as I had to be someplace by 4 and in my male mode which I just barely made. It really was a wonderful day.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what is new in Susan’s life on my most recent blog.

Wednesday night dinner at the Rock Bottom.

Okay it is Wednesday and our group is having dinner at the Rock Bottom in downtown Portland. It is another Brew pub in Portland, yes Portland has a lot of Brew Pubs, some say the microbrew really started here. We have gone here many times and the food is wonderful and we are always treated well but that is the case where ever we go here in Portland. Now I am not sure who all will show up as Cassandra is taking the summer of and she really has been the driving force behind our group. I did post in our group that I would be there for sure. Well before I get to far Just a quick note, there is still time to sign up to go on our Mexican Cruise, October 13 to 20 2018. We have 28 signed up right now let’s see if we can get 30. . For more information check out our web page or contact me.

I got home from work and had time tonight to enjoy the getting ready and take my time which always makes the night better. I was all ready and, on my way, a little before 5. I got downtown Portland and this area seems a lot busier as I never seem to be able to find a parking spot on the street. I drove around a couple blocks and nothing so I went right to the parking garage which is only 1 block away and even that was kind of full, I found a parking spot on the 5th floor right by the elevator. It still amazes me how far I have come as Susan. A few years ago, I would park right by the door or where I could see it and wait till I saw no one around before getting out of my car and going straight in. tonight it was no big deal. I parked, got out of my car got on the elevator and down to the street and walked the block to the Rock Bottom as though it was the most natural thing to do, not once did I think about how I was dressed or if people were looking at me. It really is a wonderful feeling.

I went inside and I was the first one there, Kate texted me she was almost there so I checked our group to see who all posted, Kate, Barb and Melissa all said they would be here so I knew we had at least 4. Kate got there and she got us a table for 4 although we could squeeze 2 more in we would just be cozy. As it turned out it would be just the 4 of us. Melissa showed up and we all sat at the table and talked as we waited. Barb showed up right at 7 and so we all ordered dinner. They really do have good food here but I really like their Chicken fried Chicken so that is what I ordered. They were a little busy which is always nice as you can people watch which really has become one of the fun things I like to do.

We had a wonderful time and talked a little about our group and what we want to do mainly about our dinners. We all really want to keep them going but we want to find a way to get more of the group going out. Cassandra use to send text messages which is a big undertaking but it got it to the members directly instead of them having to go to the group web page. It really made it to easy and people got to use to it and t may get hard to break that and get them back to checking the web page. Melissa has done so much with our web page she has even put forums in it where we can have group talks it really is a wonderful web page with lots of information. We talked if we should try to find a way to do group tests again but I would really like to try and get people to go back to checking the web page. It really only does take a few seconds and you can do it right on your cell phone. Well that is something we as the administrators will have to figure out. The one thing I do know is we need members to reply and let us know if they are coming out just so we can plan for it, it would not be good if we had a table for 6 and 7 or 8 showed up and had to sit by themselves. Well I guess I got off topic again as that really had nothing to do with our dinner out. We also talked a little about our Mexican cruise, still time to sign up so check the link above.

The night went by so fast as always and soon it was after 9. We all paid our bills; our waitress was awesome by the way. Now it was time to leave so we said our goodbyes and left. Melissa and I had both parked in the parking garage so we walked together and talked. It really was a wonderful evening out with friends.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what’s new on my most recent blog.

Wednesday night dinner at Who Song & Larry’s

It is Wednesday and we are going to Who Song & Larry’s, this is always a fun place to go. I always look forward nit just to going out with my friends but the time I take getting ready. I really can’t explain why I so enjoy doing my makeup and getting dressed. I enjoyed my time getting ready and soon was on my way. I got to Who Song & Larry’s and it took me a little while to find a parking spot, looks like they are busy tonight. I finally found a parking spot and was on my way in when Cassandra texted me she had just parked. We went in and they were busy but luckily it was a warm day and they had their patio open and that is where most people wanted to sit so we were able to get a table inside.

Cassandra and I got a table for 8 right in the middle of the room and waited for others to show up. Of course, we ordered their bean di which is awesome to go with their tortilla chips. I really could make a meal out of this alone. Barb showed up a little before 7 and Melissa and her wife a few minutes later so we had 5 of us for dinner tonight. Now our waiter, I think his name is Chris is the same waiter who waited on us last time we were here and he remembered us. We have always been treated wonderful here. Now we were ready to order or at least we thought. For as long as we have been coming here they have had daily specials and Wednesday’s were all you can eat Enchilada’s. Well turns out they don’t have them anymore so we all had to look at the menu so it took a little longer to order. I ended up ordering Chicken Fajita tonight.

We had a wonderful dinner and wonderful conversation. T was a relaxing dinner and we stayed here till almost 9:30 before calling it a night. Mow tomorrow night Cassandra, Melissa and I are meet for dinner at the Escape and we are going to work on our web page, and also change are e-mails. Since we own our own domain for the web site Cassandra and I have an e-mail through our domain and we are switching it over to be hosted on Gmail server. I think Melissa and Julie are also going to get an e-mail this way.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see my most recent blog.

Wednesday out and dinner with my friends.

I had things to take care of today at home so it was almost 11 before I started getting ready. Now I know Cassandra usually goes out a little early on Wednesdays before dinner so I texted her to see when she would be out so we could meet up. She texted me back she hoped to be ready by 2:30 so that would be fun to meet up with her. Now I had to figure out how to do my makeup for the day. You see for going out to dinner with my friends I really wanted red lips but that is a bit much for the day, well you guessed it the red lipstick won. Now I did wear one of my black skirts with a grey top and my black boots with heels as I think this is really a classy work to evening look. It was 12:30 before I was ready to leave. I had about 2 hours give or take a little before Cassandra would be ready and with the red lipstick really didn’t want to go shopping. I decided to go to the Starbucks by my house, I have been to this Starbucks in the morning, late afternoon and evening but I don’t think I have ever been to this one at this time of day.

I left and headed for Starbuck, at the end of the street one of my neighbors a few houses down came around the corner in his car and with cars parked either side of the street there was only room for 1 car to go so I had to wait for him. Now I do know him by name and talk with him occasionally when we are getting our mail at the same time. As he went by he waved to me and I just waved back. I don’t know if he knows about this part of my life or not I am not sure he even really saw me or was just waving at the car but if he did look he saw long hair and red lips on the person driving. Now 1 of my neighbors knows for sure and I can not be sure if she has told anyone and with as often as I go out during the day I know other neighbors have seen at least a woman driving my car so I have to believe some if not all of them know something.

I got to Starbucks about 12:40 and again they were busy, 4 people waiting for their drinks and 3 in front of me to order and most of the tables taken. As I was standing there in line with 3 other woman the young man behind the counter looked at me and said hi Susan be right with you. Anyway, soon it was my turn and I ordered my drink, the young man complimented me on my nails which I so love so I thanked him. Now as I said they were pretty busy for a midafternoon, there were a couple seats at the counter around the corner, half the long table that seats 10 and 1 small table next to the window. I went over and put my computer on the small table and went and stood with the others waiting for our drinks. Now it was probably 75% woman here but it still amazed me bow busy they were in the midafternoon. It was also a good idea to put my computer on the table as several of the people in front of me went and sat either at the big table or the counter

I sat down and caught u on some e-mails and did a little work and just played on the internet for a while. It was just a little after 2:30 when Cassandra texted me and said she was leaving, we were going to meet at the 2nd Ave Sports bar (use to be Fox & Hounds) and spend a few hours there before dinner as we were eating at Hobo’s right around the corner. I got downtown and found the perfect parking spot right between the two of them but Cassandra texted me that they were closed. We decided to go to McMenamins Ringlers Pub instead, we have gone here for dinner a few times and it really big and very friendly. We got there and parked just a half block away. I paid for street parking but the only problem was it only had 2-hour parking and it was just a little after 3 so we would be here for at least 3+ hours which would mean remembering to come back out and pay again.

We both went inside and got a table and both set up our computers, Cassandra was doing a chatroom which she loves to do, she even turned her cam a couple times so the people could see me. I did some more work and caught up on the news mostly business news as the rest seems to be so negative. We also talked on and off. Seems Cassandra does this a lot on Wednesdays. She will get out sometimes as early as 1 and go someplace and do her chat room for a few hours before meeting the group for dinner. I really don’t understand the draw of a chatroom but then I am sure people think the same about my getting dressed as Susan just to go sit at a Starbucks for a few hours. Cassandra and I talked about it for a while and we have no answers. Some have told me I do it just so I can be watched or seen and I don’t know if that is true or not. I do know when I am out I am really not focused on how I am dressed I am just me and for that matter I am really not paying attention to them and if they are looking at me. I really think for me it is more just being able to do what any other woman does and be accepted for that.

Now we did order drinks and their pretzel appetizer, By the way as I always say drinks I just thought I would ad a note here, we both ordered pop as neither one of us drinks alcohol, actually quite a few of our groups member don’t drink alcohol so it is pretty strange the we go to so many bars. I have often told people if you told one of my male friends who doesn’t know about my dressing that you saw me in a bar dressed as a woman I honestly think they would be more shocked that you saw me in a bar. By the way the pretzel appetizer is incredible, warm salted pretzel sticks with melted cheese to dip them in.

We stayed here till 6:30 and yes, we both remembered to go out and pay for parking again. Then we drove over to Hobo’s. They were not at all busy so we had our pick of tables. We sat down and it wasn’t long and Melissa and Barb showed up. It was just the 4 of us for the evening. We all talked before ordering dinner, I had the chicken Parmesan which is really good. We had a wonderful dinner and great conversation. The night went by so fast, we finished and paid our bills. I was shocked it was almost 10 when we left, it did not seem like we had been here almost 3 hours. It really is fun to be out with my friends.

Tomorrow I have some me time as I will be out by myself and Friday I am meeting Mikaela for some shopping which will be so much fun. It will give us a chance to talk and catch up as she goes out mostly in Salem so I haven’t seen her for probably a year or more.

Thanks for reading and keep up with what’s new in Susan’s life on my most recent blog.

P-Club on the first day of Fall.

Well today was the first day of Fall but still a nice day here. We were in the upper 80’s and so I decided to wear my little black dress out tonight and yes I took pictures tonight. It is probably my favorite dress I have but maybe a little too much for the P-club but I figured what the heck. I took extra time tonight to get ready as I wanted to enjoy every minute as I will miss 3 of the next 4 Friday nights but after that I will hopefully be out every Friday night through the winter months. I got to the P-Club about 7:20 and it was already getting dark outside which is both good and bad. With it getting dark earlier it is so much easier to get out at night without being seen but also I really like the sun shine and warm weather which I know will go away hence the dress I wore as it is not a good winter time dress as I can get cold very easy in this dress. There was no street parking which I always like as I can park right outside the door and also keep an eye on my car. Even the parking lot was full except for 1 spot which I took.

Again this week there was a pretty good crowd there, they had a group of ladies that meet there and play Bunco every once in a while and tonight was there night. Chris, Cristine and Bobby were already there so I joined them. We chatted for a bit and then ordered dinner. Cassandra and Wilma showed up next which was really nice as it has been awhile since Wilma has been able to make it out.

Wilma is starting a new job so it will be hard for her to get out for awhile so any time we can chat is always great. It was nice to catch up with her and find out about her new job. Victoria showed up next, she is going full time in a week or so, today they just told everyone she works with so she is all set to start her life. She is so excited. She has to buy a bunch of cloths how lucky is she?

Barb showed up also and joined us for some girl talk; it has been awhile for her also to be out on a Friday night. Barb wanted some pictures of her new outfit which was really cute, Yah I know she reminded me to take out my camera so the reason I have pictures is because of her, she took the one above, thanks Barb. It was turning into a wonderful night as what is important to me is the friends I am with. Two girls came over and asked if they could get pictures with us which you know I never turn down a chance to have my picture taken. They were so funny though, they didn’t have a camera and didn’t want a copy; they just wanted to be in a picture with us. So we took some pictures with Wilma’s camera and that was it. I would have thought they would want to have the picture.

Cindy was also here, she is a GG we met the first or second time we came to the P-club and she is wonderful. Whenever she is there she always comes and talks with us and spends time with us. She was there with her mom and brought her over to meet us, how sweet is that. She is such an awesome person.

Cassandra was down sitting at one of the tables with the Bunco ladies and having a good time. Cassandra has this ability to just walk up to any one and start a conversation, I so wish I was more like her in this way. Anyway I went to get another drink and walked by the tables and started to chat with them also. One of the ladies, Darcy I have met there before and she remembered me from a couple months ago. We had chatted for a while. I stayed and talked with her and another lady named Melissa for awhile. They were both really nice and of course Melissa had some questions which I actually enjoy answering as I really think that is what helps people understand who we are. We are not all alike just like not every female or male is alike. I would rather have people ask me the same questions over and over again then have them not ask and not understand or think something wrong. It is through communication that we come to understanding of one another. Well their break from Bunco was over and they had to get back to their game so I went and got my drink and went back to the group.

It was time for Shuffle board so Wilma and I played Victoria and Cristine. The shuffle board table was very slow which made the game hard to play. The first game Wilma and I won 27 to 6 (winner is first to get to 21), the second game Victoria and Cristine won 21 to 0 ouch. Because the table was so slow very few fell off the end and it was easy to get high points. Normally 3 to 5 is a good turn but we were having 8 to 12 per turn. The last and deciding game was a lot closer but in the end Victoria and Cristine won 21 to 17 but we all had a fun time.

The ladies playing Bunco were done and Darcy came up and wanted a picture with us so cameras came out again, Melissa saw and came running up to get in the picture with us, she was so sweet. In the picture is (left to right) Cassandra, Melissa, Susan, Darcy, Victoria & Cristine. It was a really fun night.

By midnight people started leaving and the crowd thinned. Barb, Victoria and I sat and talked for the next hour mostly about Victoria’s transition and what all I s involved. How she is doing and how she thinks it will go. Like always she is sure some will be totally supportive and some wont but in the end she needs to do what is right for her and her life. Anyway the 3 of us stayed till a little bit after 1 am before calling it a night, It was an awesome night again with my friends.

Hope to get to Starbuck’s this week but won’t make it out next Friday night because of work. Have a great week and thanks for reading.

Friday night at the P-club

Well Friday night our group the Rose_City_T-Girls was meeting at the P-club (formerly called Portsmouth pizza and pub) on Lombard in Portland Oregon. We have been going here on and off on Fridays sense the summer and have so far had good experiences every time. one of the things I really like about the P-club is they have something for everyone, two pool tables, a ping pong table, shuffle board table, dancing and even some pinball machines which make it nice because when we have big groups there is still something for everyone to do and Friday night we had a huge group, probably the biggest I have seen out in a long time.

I got there at 7:30 and went in and they were not that busy which is nice because we can get tables by the pool tables so I sat down and it was only a matter of minutes before other girls started to show up. We immediately put two tables together for our group because we knew more were coming and we were right we added a third table and even that was not enough. Let see how well I do with remembering who all was there, Maya, Cristine, Michele, Brook, Cassandra, Chris, Bob, Mellissa, Catherine, Jamie, Sandy, Barb, Norma, Diane, and Amy. I know there was more but my mind is blank right now so sorry if I left your name out. It really was hard to keep track as we had more than could fit at our 3 tables and we were soon spread out across the club playing pool, ping pong and shuffle board. Yes this girl did play all three and in 4″heels, the ping pong was the hardest as you really can’t make fast moves in them.

Maya talked me into playing ping pong with her and she is really good at ping pong. We started off just hitting the ball back and forth for a while and then decided to play a game. The first game I did okay but ended up losing 21 to 13 so we played a second game and this game I came closer but still fell short 21 to 17 but it was a lot of fun. I know Maya took it easy on me which was nice and we had a fun time. Next I went down as it was my turn to play pool.

I played 4 games of pool won 3 in a row and then got to play Cassandra; she is probably our best pool player so she is the one everyone wants to beet. She can talk a really good game but can really back it up with her play. Anyway Chris and Cassandra made a bet who would win; I was the 2 to 1 underdog which is okay as I am not that good. I ended up losing but came close, we were both on the 8 ball and missed a couple times as neither of us wanted to leave a shot for the other if we missed. But it was a really good game.

After this I had to sit down for a while as my feet were sore from all the standing and moving around. This was nice as it gave me a chance to talk with some of the girls. Maya, Barb, Brook, Mellissa and I were at the one end of the table and we had a nice little conversation which I so enjoy. I really think just sitting around talking is so much fun and gives you a chance to really get to know others and what is going on in their lives. I really wish I had more time to talk with all the girls in the group but with such a big group doing so many things at once it is hard and I really don’t want to miss talking with any of my great friends. So if I missed talking to you please grab me the next time we are out so we can chat.

I got to talk just briefly with Jamie and Catherine when they came in but was playing pool at the time. It was great to chat with them both as I have met both before and they are so wonderful. I really hope they can come out some more with our group. Jamie brought her friend Sandy which was her first time out. It was really nice to meet her and did talk to her for a little bit. She seemed like she was having a really good time and I am sure she will be out again. Like I said we have such wonderful girls in this group.

Well it was time for shuffle board so several of us went up to play. We played teams and Diane and I were on the same team. We won the first game and lost the second game so we played a tie breaker and lost by 1 point. I did score two 5’s which is really hard because it is the corner of the board and almost impossible t5o get the puck to stop there. Now I must admit one of the 5’s was for the other team as I tried to knock one of theirs off and can you believe it, it stopped right on the corner. Mine landed on the 3 point but as the point always goes to the high score mine didn’t count so instead of my team getting three points we got nothing and the other team got 5, this was the game we lost by 1 point. I guess though I should count this as a win as I scored their points?

Any way by this time it was getting really late about 1:30 and our group was dwindling down. We were all getting tired and ready to call it a night and sure enough Cassandra found two cute GG’s to talk to, I don’t know how she does it but soon we were all over talking with them, after all who does not want to talk to cute girls even if they are half your age or more. Their names were Evie and Lisa and they were just wonderful. We sat and chatted with them for probably 30 minutes and told them all about us and our group. The thing they found most interesting was that some of our girls are married and that we are not all gay. I really think that is the common thought is that crossdressers are gay so it is so nice to be able to talk to them and explain about who we are. I really think once they understand who we are it helps remove any possible misunderstandings. It was a fun night and of course I had to get a picture with them. From left to right is Diane, Evie, Susan & Lisa. They were awesome to talk too.

Well by this time it was after 2 and they were closing up so we all paid our tabs, the bar tenders know most of us by name how cool is that and all headed for home. It was about 2:45 when I finally got home, what a fun and late night. Well tonight (Saturday) is our Christmas party and as I got up really late I am not going out shopping for a new dress so I guess it will be my short black dress tonight. It should be so much fun and I will have more pictures for sure.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day.
