My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Friday night with friends

Well it has been another long week so I was happy it was finally Friday and I could spend some time with my friends, always a great way to start a weekend. Well I started getting ready about 5 as I have said before I really enjoy the whole experience of transforming into Susan. I know that may sound weird and maybe if I was female and had to do the hair and makeup every day for the past well many years maybe just maybe I might feel different about it but as it is something I do once or twice a week it is still really special and fun and something I look forward to. Well after an hour and a half I was ready and looking pretty so off I went to meet my friends.

Cassandra, Amy, Chris, Melissa and Petra were already there as they went early to watch a football game. There was actually a pretty good crowd here already watching football and basketball probably why I had to park on the street tonight. So here we sat, eating dinner, talking and watching not only college football but also basketball just a typical girl’s night out. Well it wasn’t long and more of our group started to show up, Cristine, Bobby, Michelle, Roxy, Alicia, Rachael, Julie, Qeeny and her friend Amy. We were going to have a good night.

It was great to see Rachael out again, this makes twice in one week and as it was a smaller group I got a chance to talk with her and catch up. I met Rachael probably 8 or 10 years ago and we have kept in touch. It was great to spend time with her and luckily she thought about getting some pictures. It is funny as when I first started to go out I could not get enough pictures and yes I have thousands of Susan pictures but as I have become more comfortable going out Susan has become more of a normal everyday part of my life. Now don’t get me wrong I still love getting my picture taken what Girl doesn’t but I seem to not think about it as much. I always have my camera with me in my purse but I just get so caught up in the I guess normal routine of being Susan that most of the time I am not even thinking I am a crossdresser or a guy in a dress, I am just Susan your average female out for a nice evening. And it really is because of my wonderful friends I have made over the years like Rachael, Alice, Cassandra, well everyone in our group has had an impact on me and my life and I love them all for that. Wow looks like I got off track again must be the blonde in me showing. Anyway this is Rachael and me, it was so much fun and I hope she can come out more with the group or maybe we could get together for dinner and talk.

Julie also showed up tonight, she also only gets out very rarely so it was great to see her also. Turns out she has a birthday in a couple days so she came out to celebrate with us. She is so much fun s always great when she can come out, Happy Birthday girl. Well some of the girls played pool, I didn’t get a chance as I was having so much fun just talking with everyone and catching up on what was new.

Well I got a chance to talk with Alicia and of course we had to get a picture after all I had my camera out. I have known Alicia for several years also, it is funny to look back and realize how much a part of my life Susan has become and the friend I have made. Looking back through my blog, one of the benefits of having a blog. I have been going out now on a regular basis at least once a week now for over 5 years. It was in mid-2008 that I really started to embrace Susan and my female side and I am so happy I did as it has made my life so much better and I have made so many awesome friends that I would have never met had it not been for this side of me. It is still funny though as even though I have known some of these friends for years and consider them my best friends I am still learning new things about them as I am sure they are learning new things about me as the transgender community tends to be a very private group and does not open up much about the other parts of our lives. Maybe one day we will not have to hide any parts of our lives from people and we can just live and be who we are. Any way I had a great time talking with Alicia and did learn a few new things about her.

Well it was time for Karaoke and of course Chris and Queeny sang and did a great job, even Julie got up and sang and did great we have some real talent in the group. Karaoke is fun and it really isn’t about how well you can sing even though I am scared to sing by myself. I figure if you have the guts to get up and sing in front of people then you are a winner.

Well I got a chance to talk with Amy, Qeeny’s friend. She came to the Halloween party and that was her first time meeting the group. Seems Qeeny didn’t tell her ahead of time about the group but she had a blast and wanted to come out tonight and hang out with us again. Well you know what that means yes one more picture, this is me with Amy. We talked about the Halloween party and she was trying to figure out who we were at the party.

It was such a fun night and as always goes by so fast. Soon it was down to just Cassandra and me from our group. So we talked for a while but finally about 1:45 we called it a night and went up to pay our bills. Yes I had another blonde moment as my credit card had expired. Yes as it was after midnight and now November my card was no longer good and I had forgot to put my new Susan credit card in my purse. How embracing. Well luckily I did have cash as I think it is always smart to have some cash on you when you are out. Now the cool thing is the man behind me had heard and offered to pay which was really nice of him. He has talked to me and Cassandra before so he knows about us and our group and is fine with us. I thanked him but paid myself with my money but it did make me feel good.

Thanks for reading and have a great week

Dinner with friends

Well it has been a busy week but I did find time to go out and have dinner with my Friends on Wednesday night. It is always a fun time. I got downtown Portland about 6:30, Cassandra, Kim, Chris & Sarah were already there and it wasn’t long before Amy, Melissa and Cristine showed up. We sat at the bar and talked for awhile.

After awhile we moved over to the tables so we could order dinner. Rachael, Dee, Petra, Joan and Kimberly also showed up so we had a really good turnout for a Wednesday night. We had a nice dinner and great conversation and just a fun couple hours.

As always it goes by too fast and soon it was time for me to leave. Most of the girls were going next door to play pool and dance. It is a shame I can’t stay out later during the week but it was still a fun night.

A long and exciting week comes to an end, time to relax with friends.

Wow what an exciting awesome week. I was so ready to spend some times with my friends. For those of you who have followed my blog you have probably already read that the verdict came back on the discrimination complaint about our being kicked out of a club for being transgender and we won, the state agreed that we were discriminated and our rights were violated under the Oregon equal rights law. It has been a long 14 months and although we won it is not over as we are sure and actually looking forward to Chris Penner the bar owner appealing this ruling. This was an administrative Judge ruling which is good but an appeals Judge ruling or even the state Supreme Court ruling would be better. Here is a link to story.

Well as we always go out on Friday nights I had that to look forward to but tonight 3 of us were meeting early as Cassandra had been contacted by a couple of the local TV stations for interviews. Now as I was working I could not make the first one but did the second one. We were meeting at 5 in downtown Portland so I was both excited and scared at the same time as this is an important issue that I really felt we needed to be said but it also would mean being interviewed on the local TV station. It was nice that we got there a little early and had a chance to talk before and calm down.

Finally our wait was over and the TV van pulled up. The reporter and camera guy came in, the Reporters name was Erica Nochlin. She talked to us for a bit off camera and really helped put us at ease telling us to just look and talk with her and not to think about the camera which really helped. They were there for almost an hour and talked to each of us for about 5 minutes on camera for what turns out to be about a minute of time on the TV news, here is the video if you want to check it out. What an awesome night so far and it would only get better as we had the rest of the night with our friends.

Well we were off to join up with the rest of our friends and have a relaxing Friday night out and I am sure some celebrating. What a wonderful way to end the week. Chris and Roxy were already there when Cassandra, Cristine and I arrived. We even had a new girl named Reesa show up. She just moved back to Portland and found out about the group from the news. It was nice to meet her and she seems really nice so we all look forward to getting to know her better. Well more of our group showed up Kim, Jan, Lyn, Michelle, Stacy, Lorraine and Robin. Robin had moved away from Portland maybe a year or two ago but has now moved back so we look forward to seeing her out again more. It was good to talk with her and catch up.

Well you can guess what the number one topic of conversation was tonight. There really was an extra bit of excitement and joy in the air tonight. Rachel & Heather, Danielle & Kelly were also there and they were awesome, such wonderful friends. The group Met Rachel at the P-Club and she was so awesome and is why we know about and come here now as she had talked to the owner about us and he invited us to his bar. It really is like one big family here. We really have met so many wonderful people here and they have made our group feel at home.

Well the group played pool and sang karaoke and just had a wonderful time. At 10 pm Paul the owner shut down Karaoke long enough to watch Cassandra’s interview with KPTV and then he bought our group a shot of something that tasted like Banana cream pie. How great was that. It was back to Karaoke and of course Kim, Chris and Lynn all sang and did great as always. At 11 he did the same thing and turned on KATU for the interview with Cassandra, Cristine and me, this was the first time we had seen the interview and it is a little strange to be watching yourself on TV in a bar full of people but everyone at the bar was supportive of us and told us we did great. Later Rachel, Heather, Danielle, Kelly and Lorraine sang either don’t stop believing or we are the champions or maybe both for our group, how cool was that. What wonderful friends we have.

Later on Jan put in to sing Girls just want to have fun and Jan, Lynn, Cassandra and I all got up and sang, yes I can get up and sing with other people just not by myself but who knows now that I have been on TV for the second time I can work up the courage to sing well we will see. It really was in incredible night. It was almost 2 am and Cassandra and I were the last two from our group when I left, Cassandra was still there playing pool but I am sure she didn’t stay much longer as they would be closing soon. What a wonderful night

Awesome Wednesday night meeting with our Attorney

Well it has been an awesome afternoon and evening. It started about 4 when Cassandra sent out a text that the Judge had issued his decision in our case against the P-Club and Chris Penner for discriminating against our group by kicking us out of his club. Our Attorney Sue-Del McCulloch wanted to meet with us at Fox & Hound tonight and tell us what she could. Now I had not planned on going out tonight but there was no way I was going to miss this. I actually started getting ready as soon as I got the text.

I got to Fox & Hound by 6:15 and Cassandra, Chris, Kim and Victoria were already there. I guess we were all excited to hear what Sue-Del had to say even though she wouldn’t be here till 7:30 to 8 pm. Well it wasn’t long and Kelly, Christine, Mellissa and Sarah showed up. Actually tonight was Sarah’s first night out with the group as she just joined our group a couple days ago. It was awesome to meet her and such an exciting night to be out. Petra, Jan, Lynn and a few others even showed up, I think we had maybe 15 of us there by 7.

We were all waiting for Sue-Del and we knew it was good news as she had told Cassandra that much. Well Sue-Del showed up about 8 and we all couldn’t wait. Now she couldn’t go into a lot of details as the Judge’s decision won’t be made public till Friday 8-30-2013 when it is released to the media which is also the reason this blog will be posted a little later than normal. It is kind of symbolic that the judge released his decision on our discrimination suit on the 50 year anniversary of the walk on Washington and the day Martin Luther King Jr. gave his speech “I have a dream”. Any way Sue-Del told us that the Judge supported found that Chris Penner had in fact discriminated against us and violated our rights under state law.

We are all thrilled with the verdict and actually very surprised at how fast all this has happened. I can remember when we sat together at the Rainbow room on July 11 2012 (thank god for my blog) and talked about if we should go and meet with Beth Allen our first attorney. She had seen the YouTube video Cassandra had posted of Chris Penner telling us not to come back because we were transgender. Here we are a little over 13 months later with a ruling in our favor. I think most of us thought it would take a year or so just to investigate and then a year or more to work its way through the system. Beth Allen started our case but as she was appointed to be a Judge in February she got us in touch with Sue-Del who agreed to take over our case and we as a group were truly blessed to have had two such incredible, supportive attorneys to help us we can never thank them enough.

Now we all realize that this is not over as Chris Penner will almost for sure appeal the decision and we all expected this and in a way I think in a way we are excited about him appealing it. We look at it this way, several years back I think in 2007 the state of Oregon past a law protecting transgender people from discrimination. Actually the law basically says that transgender people have the rights of the gender they present as. Now we all know that laws can be passed but it can always be challenged in court. Well this law has and it stood up which is great for all transgender people and not just in Oregon as many States and cities have passed similar laws and now there has been a Judge that upheld it. Now this was an administrative hearing and Judge so having it go on to the State appeals court and getting them to support the law and uphold transgender rights would be huge. We really have a long road ahead and I think it will be at least 2 to 5 more years to go through the appeals process. The best thing is that this will send a message to all businesses that if they do discriminate against Transgender people they will be held accountable and will face huge legal action.

I am truly proud to be a part of this and such a wonderful group here in Oregon. There were 13 of us that were able to step up and make a stand and many more in our group that for one reason or another were unable to but were always there supporting us, it truly was a team effort and I hope all of the members are proud of this wonderful group or should I say family of people.

I really want to Thank the following people and let them know how much they have helped us and what an impact they have made on our lives and all transgender people.

Beth Allen our first Attorney

Sue-Del McCulough our current attorney

Brad Avakian the commissioner of BOLI

Chet Nakada the hearing presenter for BOLI

Jen also a hearing presenter from BOLI

You all are awesome people.

Couple more links Here is an video interview and story.

Well Friday night I will once again be out with my friends and we will be celebrating so it will be an awesome night. I am really looking forward to it as I am sure many others in our group will be as it will be our first chance to talk after this is made public and release to the media. None of us know what the future holds for us but I know for me this experience will be one of the highlights of my life.

Levi’s last night as bar tender at Sweet Home

Well it has been another long week and as always I was so looking forward to Friday night and spending time with my friends. I actually got off work a little early today which is always nice as I don’t have to rush to get ready plus I actually took a short nap well actually I fell asleep on the couch, hope that is not a sign of my getting older. I woke up a little over an hour later at 4:30 and headed upstairs for a nice bath which I don’t do very often but they are really relaxing. I was hoping to be too Sweet Home earlier than 7 tonight so I was done with my bath by 5 and started getting Susan ready with the hope of being all done by 6 which I should be able to do. Everything was going as I planed and at 6:05 I was in my car pulling out of my drive.

I got to Sweet Home by 6:25 and went in to find Chris already there; I think he comes straight from work so he probably gets here about 6. He was watching some You Tube videos on his computer and some of them were pretty funny. The special looked really good BBQ ribs and corn on the cob which I love but I also knew that it would be messy to eat so I chose something else as I didn’t want to risk messing up my makeup or getting BBQ sauce under my beautiful nails, yes a girl hast to make sacrifices.

There was already a pretty good crowd for this early as I think a lot of people came out for Levi’s last night. For those of you who have never been to Sweet Home Levi is the head bar tender there but he recently got another job and so he will be leaving are happy little family here. He really is wonderful as he has made us all feel welcome here from the first night we showed up. He adds that personal touch to his job which is awesome and actually every one there does the same. Paul the owner has a wonderful staff and they all make you feel like you are part of their family including Paul who is there on most Friday nights and always talks with his customers. There was a TV show many years ago called Cheers and this bar feels just like that TV show, here is a couple lines from the theme song to the show. Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came. You wanna be where you can see; our troubles are all the same you wanna be where everybody knows your name. We will miss him but he promises to stop in and see everyone.

Well it wasn’t long and more of our group started to show up, I was hoping we would have a good turnout tonight. Kim, Laura, Roxy, Crsitine, Bobby, Victoria, Cassie, Jan, Lynn, Samantha, Queeny, Petra and Lorraine showed up. It was good to see Samantha and Queeny again as they don’t get out as much with the group. Hope I didn’t miss anyone. Paul the owner will be filling in on Friday nights for a while I guess till he can find a replacement so tonight he was there almost the whole night and working behind the bar.

I got a chance to talk with Lorraine for a bit it was good to see her out again. She couldn’t stay late though. It was just a fun night and it was busy I think a lot of people came in to see Levi on his last night. Kim, Roxy, Victoria and I talked for a while which is always fun. I think Susan enjoys the whole social aspect of being out. It is not really what we are doing or where we go but the friends I am with that make the night so special. I hope they all know how special they all are to me.

Well the Karaoke group also had a good showing I would guess they had upwards of 30 in their group here tonight and so when Karaoke started there was a long list of people to sing. Laura, Chris, Kim, Lynn and Queeny all got up and sang but with so many people there to sine they only got to sing a couple songs but they all did awesome. Well it got late and was time for Kim to leave so I walked her out to her car to say goodnight. It is always sad to see Kim leave.

I got back inside and it was still packed but as several of our group had left we could mostly fit around just the one table now. Laura was the big pool winner tonight as she played many games. Well Samantha and Queen left and it wasn’t long before they were back as they needed a jump to get their car going so Lynn went out and tried to jump start their car but no luck so they had to call a tow truck so they got to stay a little longer. Not a great way to end an evening. I think a lot of us think about that when we are out. It is one thing to call a tow truck or a friend when you are out but when you are dressed it adds a hole nother level to the problem. This is one of the greatest things about cell phones and why I think everyone should have one.

Well Ed showed up for a bi, he actually met our group through Kim so he stopped by for a beer unfortunately Kim had left about 30 minutes earlier so we invited him to sit with us and I introduced him to Jan and Lynn and Laura. We talked for about 20 minutes, he actually just stopped in for a beer but it was still good to see him and I hope he knows he is always welcome to join us on Friday night.

Well it was after 1 when the last of us Jan, Lynn, Laura and I left. It was a wonderful evening and of course I forgot to get a picture with Levi well hopefully the next time he comes in as a customer I can get a picture with him and maybe our group. It was a fun night and always sad to see it come to an end.

With that I would like to thank Levi for all he has done and the way he has treated us over the past year, you are more than a bar tender you are a friend. The same goes for the rest of the staff here. Jodi the other bar tender who for the first several times I met her here on her nights off made us feel just as welcome and we thought she was just a customer. Even Paul the owner has sat down with us on slower night and talked with us and got to know us. It is just a great friendly neighbor hood bar that accepts everyone. We all wish Levi the best in his new job.

Thanks for reading

Last Friday of July

Well it is Friday night and of course we all know what that means, Susan gets to go out with her friends for a fun evening. It is such a wonderful way to end a week and start a relaxing weekend. We meet at Sweet Home Bar and Grill which is a local neighbor hood bar but has been so wonderful and excepting to our group. I got there just after 7 and Kim was just walking in when I was pulling into the parking lot and I could see Cassandra’s car right in front. Inside Cassandra, Kim and Bobby were already there.

Amy was next to show up, it was great to see here again, she is so much fun and nice to talk with, I am trying to get her to go golfing with us when we go again later in the summer. Well it wasn’t long and others started to show up. Mikaela, Cristine, Cassie Laura (not the regular one but I have met this Laura a couple times in the past) Jenny (a GG with Laura) and Ed so we had a really good group.

It was fun to sit and talk with each other especially Laura, Jenny and Ed as I wanted to get to know them better as one can never have too many friends. I am pretty sure Laura is full time but the topic never came up and I didn’t want to just ask as to me when we are out as girls it really doesn’t matter if you are full time, part time or just crossdress once in a great while as if you are dressed as a female then you are female just that simple. It is funny as that seems to be the question I get asked the most, people are afraid to talk to me as they don’t know what to say or how to address me and I always tell them the same thing. If I am presenting as female (dressed as a girl) then address me as such, Miss, her, she, Susan. I think this is a good rule of thumb and although maybe not correct 100% of the time I would be willing to bet 99%+ it will be. I do not know one person who goes out presenting as the opposite sex that is not happy being addressed that way.

Well I got a chance to talk with Mikaela. We are talking about doing a girls day or evening out, shopping and dinner which will be so much fun. Going shopping as Susan is always fun and having someone along to chat with would be awesome but it may be a bit as we both have busy schedules the next few weeks. Of course we had to get pictures. It is funny as I see the excitement in Mikaela that I use to have. Don’t get me wrong I so love my Susan time out but as I have been doing it for several years it has become more of a common and that excitement of experiencing things for the first time has faded some. I love pictures and getting pictures while out but I don’t often think of it even though I have my camera with me all the time. Wow a little side tracked, anyway Mikaela took the picture above of me and of course we had to get this one of us together.

Well Karaoke started and Kim sang a few songs and did awesome, she is really good at singing. Laura even got up and sang a song and did really well. I still haven’t worked up the courage to get up and sing but I have been somewhat working on learning a couple songs so maybe someday, well we will see.

Monica and Shannon showed up. Shannon is full time and looks great, she kind of reminds me of Jennifer Aniston from the show Friends. I only got to talk to them briefly as well first I didn’t notice when they came in but as always the night goes by so fast. Soon it was almost midnight and it was time for Kim to leave so I walked her to her car which was right next to mine in the parking lot. Always hard to see her leave but I will see her again soon.

Well back inside it was getting busy as a lot of the Karaoke group was there by now. Even Blue showed up which was awesome, it has been several month since she has been to Sweet Home on a Friday night. It was great to chat with her and catch up on things you know girl talk.

Next week several of our group will not be able to make it out on Friday night which is a shame as it is Levi’s last night. He has been our Friday night Bar tender for the last year and more than that our good friend. He has been so wonderful to us but he has found a new and better job and even though we will all miss him we wish him the best. Hopefully he will still come in as a customer so we will get to see him from time to time but it will be different. I think the owner Paul is going to bar tend on Friday nights at least for a while which is good too as he is also wonderful. He is the one who when he heard the P-club had asked us to leave invited us to come to his place. I will have to get a picture with Levi before he leaves.

Well it was an awesome night as always but soon it was after 1 and it was time for us to leave. It is amazing how fast those 6 hours go by. Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Out for dinner with my friends

Well it was Wednesday night and I had the chance to go out to dinner with some of my friends which is always fun but it was also a chance to have dinner with Kim so I was really looking forward to it. I got to Fox & Hound before 7; Kim and Cristine were already there. It was going to be a great night. The three of us talked while we waited for others to show up. It wasn’t long and Cassandra and Melissa showed up so we talked about what we wanted for dinner and decided to walk up the street to House of Louie for Chinese food.

It was a nice warm day and the walk up the street was nice. It is amazing thinking back just a few years I would never have walked the streets of Portland during the daylight as Susan. It is so relaxing and fun to just be out as Susan and able to express this side of me. They have really good food here so if you are ever in downtown Portland and want Chinese food give them a try.

It wasn’t long and Victoria, Lynn and Jan showed up so we had a nice little group for dinner. We had an awesome time just relaxing and talking over a nice dinner. As always time goes by so fast and soon it was almost 9 which during the week I my limit for being out. Kim also had to leave, we said our goodbyes and left. It is always hard to leave but I will see them all again on Friday night again. Kim and I walked backed to our cars which was a wonderful way to end an evening.

Now I look forward to Friday night when I can stay out later.

Rose City T-girls first golf tournament

Well today our group had its first golf tournament. There were 8 of us who signed up to play. Cassandra had made tee times for 1 pm at Wildwood golf course
(21881 NW St. Helens Road, Portland Oregon 97231). Some of the girls had played here before as guys of course and the rest of us had not but it was going to be so much fun.

Now most of us got there at almost the same time which was nice as this was a totally new place for us to go, always easier in a group when you go someplace new. Now Cassandra had given them a heads up about our group so we knew we weren’t going to shock them just walking in. so we went down and checked in and they were wonderful. They always referred to us as ladies even when I had to sign for the golf cart I had to give my driver’s license and as she was writing down my name I told her she could call me Susan and she crossed off my male name and wrote Susan how cool.

Well we got some practice balls and went to the driving range to loosen up and of course get pictures. Here is me taking some practice swings. We got several pictures of us as that was also part of the fun of today. From here it was back down to the first tee to get ready to play, of course I stopped in the pro shop for some snacks and something to drink as it was going to be hot out on the course.

Now the course was pretty busy early on so we did have to wait for a bit. We also did get a few looks but it was more of a yep those are T-girls and that was it, really no one paid any attention to us and I never heard a comment about us

Well while we were on the first tee I was getting pictures of us when the man from the Pro shop came down so we could get a group picture. He actually took a couple of us and told us all to have a fun time which we knew we would. It was a beautiful day maybe just a little warm well if you are wearing makeup that is. It is funny as I spent an hour this morning getting ready and doing my makeup for this even though I knew by the end of the day I would look bad. Another reason pictures were taken on the 1st tee.

Well we had two groups to play and I was in the second group. The 1st was Veronica, Melissa, Laura & Julie and the 2nd; my group was Cassandra, Petra, Victoria and me. Now I have played 3 times before as Susan when I went to Diva Las Vegas but it was always really windy when we golfed there, today there was really no wind maybe every once in a while a light breeze so it would get hot in the sun.

Well as we teed off I got action shots of everyone for our group’s photo album. Victoria even got a picture of me hitting off the first tee. And it was a pretty good shot for me. The course was beautiful and in really good shape. Now I don’t golf as much as I use to actually if I get out more than twice a year now I am doing well so my goal for the day was simple, shoot under 100 and if possible not go over 50 on either 9. Well I met my goal and I was really consistent as I shot a 49 on the front 9 and a 50 on the back 9 for a total score of 99 and most important of all I did not lose a single nail, I know you thought I was going to say ball didn’t you. Well I lost 2 balls which I could handle I was way more worried about the nails.

Well we got back to the club house after our 18 holes of golf and we sat out on the deck to rest and cool off. The staff here was wonderful and treated us outstanding. We are already talking about golfing here again later in the summer. I went in and thanked them for being so awesome to us and the guy told me they enjoyed us being there and hoped we would come back again which I assured him we would.

What a wonderful day and a big thanks to Cassandra for putting this all together for us. Well thanks for reading and I hope you weekend was as awesome as mine. This is my group before we started, after wards there were no pictures as my makeup was not looking good.

Another fun end to the week

Well it has been another long week and as always I so look forward to Fridays as I know I will have a chance to relax and have fun with my friends. Tonight I chose to wear my red dress which is a little fancier than I would normally wear out to a place like sweet home but what can I say I just felt like wearing it. I forgot to get a picture but here I am in the same dress at the Prom party we had several months back. I like it for two reasons, first if you can’t tell already I love the color red. Second through the miracle of elastic and padding I can create a really nice cleavage, I will include a picture further down which shows this effect which for a crossdresser especially with a flat chest is awesome and just makes you feel pretty.

I got there and Teresa had just pulled in which was a pleasant surprise. I went inside and Laura, Veronica, Chris and Cassandra were already there. It was great to see Veronica again as she does not get to go out with us that much as she works out of town but she is in town this weekend because 8 of us are playing golf tomorrow, Saturday. We are having our first Rose City T-girls golf tournament. Now some of us are good at golf and others not so much and I will not say where I fall but this is really not about the scores but having fun and looking pretty out on the golf course. Okay I will say where I fall in the golfing group, I am probably the middle so I shouldn’t win or lose but will have a blast and look great doing it.

Well Teresa came in and it was great she was able to join us tonight. I really don’t get to see her often enough so I really enjoyed talking with her. Melissa also showed up so we had a full table already. A man at the bar came over and introduced himself and again I apologize as I can’t remember his name but he asked what we were drinking and then bought 2 pictures of beer for our table. He was here with a woman I assume was his date but not sure. He was really nice and soon a couple of the girls were playing pool with the 2 of them and having a fun time. Well it came time for them to leave and her came over looking for Veronica and had his name and phone number on a napkin for her but she was off someplace and the lady with him came over so he put it in his pocket and they left. Looks like Veronica was the hit of the night.

Well it wasn’t long and Cristine, Bobby, Cassie, Petra, Michelle, Cristina and her friend arrived so we had a good turnout for the night. It was a fun night and we all enjoyed talking and playing pool till Karaoke started. Chris and Laura sang several times as the Karaoke group had an event out of town so none of them made it tonight so it really was pretty quiet here. I almost worked up the courage to get up and sing and actually tonight would have been a good night as with the exception of our group it was pretty slow. I have a couple songs I have been practicing and could probably sing them although not well so maybe someday.

Well it was getting late midnight, not as late as we normally stay out but then we have to be up somewhat early tomorrow for golf, we are meeting at 12:15 and for me I have an hour drive to get to the golf course. Ad that to the fact Susan takes more time to get ready, yes we will all be wearing makeup and looking our best as that is the point of the golf game, so I will have to be up somewhat early. Anyway we were getting ready to leave and Chris, Laura sang one more song and also Melissa and even Cassandra. Now Cassandra has sung “Girls just want to have fun” before but she always gets a group to sing with her. Tonight she sang on her own and she sang the theme song to the TV show Brady Bunch. I should have got up and sang. Well we were leaving so it was too late for tonight. It is strange that I will go places as Susan and could care less what people may think but singing or dancing and I just can’t stop thinking what they will think of me.

Well Saturday we will play golf and have a fun time and of course I will blog about it and hopefully have some new pictures to post. Thanks for reading and have a fun weekend.

Another fun night out with friends at Harvey’s

Well I look forward to this all month long as it is such a fun night out. A group of us anywhere from 12 to 25 get together once a month and go to Harvey’s. We have been going here for years but for about the last 2 years we have gone once a month. Now most of us meet at Fox & Hound around 7 and then walk over to Harvey’s around 8:30. Now we do this for a couple reasons, first parking is so much better, plus it is just fun to have an extra hour or so out with my friends.

I got to Harvey’s the same time as Cassandra and Wilma. Cristine, Amy and a new girl Jennifer was there already. Jennifer was in boy mode and she is in the process of moving to Portland and starting her transition. They weren’t going to Harvey’s but came out to join us for dinner. It was great to see Amy again and spend some time with her. She even had new hair for tonight and looked great but then she always does. Well Joan, Melissa, and Laura also showed up so we had a good group already.

Well about 8:30 we left Fox & Hound and started walking to Harvey’s, I stopped by my car and got my wrap as even though it was warm out now I was worried it could be cool for the walk back at midnight. Now normally I wear my lower heels but tonight I just wanted my 4″ heels even though I knew by the end of the night my feet would be killing me but they went so well with my cute outfit.

We got to Harvey’s and Jan & Lynn were already there and it wasn’t long before Victoria showed up. We had 12 of us for the show so Cassandra and I went out and got our tickets as we waited. Now getting here early enough we were able to get seats in the bar close to the entrance. Now getting in was not an issue as they always reserve tables for us as we tell them how many we are bringing and we have our regular waitress Kim who is awesome and always makes sure we are in her section but I really wanted to be able to sit while we waited so I didn’t have to stand in my heels.

Finally it was time to go into the show room and we had tables almost right up front. Now there were a lot of people for the show and there were to Bachelorette parties here. One of the groups went up on stage and got pictures and it wasn’t long and the other Bachelorette group came up and got on stage. There was a man that got their cameras and took pictures of them. When they were done he came over to our group and said we should go up on stage and get our pictures taken and well you know how we feel about our pictures being taken so he didn’t have to ask again. Well we found out later that he was the owner of Harvey’s.

Well Cassandra, Lynn and I all gave him our cameras and we all got on stage. You could not imagine all the flashes from the audience as we were up there. There was on table close to the front with 4 girls and 4 guys and all 4 of the girls had their cameras out taking our pictures and we were having a blast. At the end Cassandra tried to take a picture of the audience as she told them as they were taking our picture she wanted one of them but her batteries died and she couldn’t take it. I stopped by the one table and asked if I could get a picture with one of them since they took ours and the one girl was only too happy to get a picture with me. The night was off to an awesome start.

Well the show started and the comedians were awesome, we laughed so hard. I think this is why I enjoy this night out as we always laugh and have fun. Now I am not saying all the comedians are the best but almost always they are good and tonight was no exception. The opening comedian was great and I think he could be a headliner. The headliner was awesome and he was having fun with the audience. And picking on people in the audience he even had some jokes about us as we were so close to the stage but it was all in fun. It was just an awesome night. After the show the owner came back and told us about next month’s comedian and said we will love that night so we are already looking forward to that night.

The comedians came back over to our tables as they both wanted to get pictures with us. Now I didn’t think to take my camera out so I didn’t get a picture. The headliner was Joe Fontenot and the other comedian was Tony and I can’t remember his last name. It is funny as this is the third time the comedians have come over to us to get pictures with us and Cassandra was off someplace else and missed out. Joe thanked us for being there and said he was glad we had fun.

Well on the way out we got talking to the one Bachelorette party and they were awesome. They wanted some pictures with us and of course you know what we said so all our camera’s came out and we had a blast with them. We talked with them for a while and they had a drawing for a gift card and one of them won it so they are planning on coming back again. Anyway we were telling them we come every month so they said they were going to try to come when we are there again as they had so much fun.

Well we got outside and they wanted more pictures well it might have been us but either way we got more pictures. I am sure they will remember this night. Well once we got outside it really was a nice night and not cold so I took my wrap off.

Well it was time to head back to Fox & Hound as that is where we parked and some of the girls wanted to go back there and play pool and a couple wanted to go to CC Slaughters and go dancing. For me it was time to head home. It is still amazing how at ease I am just walking around downtown Portland. It was an awesome night and really my feet were not that bad even though we had walked 7 blocks each way. It was such a fun night. Here is one more picture from last night.

Thanks for reading and have a great week.
