I arrived at Steve's closer to 5 than 4, and there weren't that many people there yet. I sat with Joe and Sylvia, and ate some goodies. People, and more food, kept arriving every 10 minutes or so, and I had more. Along with several bourbons and cokes.
I had fun chatting with Debbie, and she was excited about my being published. I ended up inside on Steve's computer, printing off my story, which I brought outside and gave it to her. She absolutely loved, and went on and on about it.
Joe left at about 6 to be at work by 7. I chatted with Randy for a little while; he's a nice guy. Before leaving, I was up on the deck chatting with Will a little bit. He seems the same old, even if he is straight now.
I left at 9, "freshened up," and left for Flex at about 11. It was "Leather Night" there, but not much interesting, really. Carl was the only person I really knew there. Joe called at about 11:30, and said he'd be to CC's by midnight. At about quarter till I headed over there.
I saw Dwight there, and he and I had a nice conversation, he catching me up on most of the "old gang." I danced a little while with Alan, and then Joe and I spent some time talking with Doug, and his friend Greg.
I left there at about 2:00AM.
