A night to remember
Happy Birthday, Dadita" Anna wrapped her arms around both of us, and winked.
The sound of broken glass interrupted this wonderful moment as Debra casually put her cigarette out and reached to clean up the mess she created. Bootsie was there in seconds.
Leave it alone, Barbra" she gathered up as much as she could by hand and started towards the back bar.
Debra, it's Debra" But Booter was already gone "She knows that, that bitch" Debra's eyes never left mine
Bootsie made it a very special night with her attention to every detail. Bootsie didn't dance, at least not with others. She apologized for this, but made a way to get close to me with a whisper in every drink.
We all closed the club and resumed social activity at House of Pies.
House of Pies is located on Kirby Avenue in the River Oaks district of Houston. This area is known for its luxurious homes, celebrity status and Azaleas.
When Jackie and I first arrived in Houston, we researched the activities of the area and the Azalea parade was a must see event.
It did not fail to live up to these expectations. Every home, mansion, had manicured lawns and a vast array of Azalea types, colors and layout.
The River Oaks area also has a history of crime associated with the passions of money.
Blood and Money about John Hill who killed his wife with a delicious mixture of puss, feces and other spices Put into a Petrie dish. And of course, the new book The monster in river-oaks is selling out very quickly.
House of pies is located on Kirby Avenue in the River Oaks district of Houston. This area is known for its luxurious homes, celebrity status and Azaleas. And mercenary crime.

House of Pies was in fact a meeting place for collaboration of some of these crimes. But for the gay community, it is simply a place to continue socializing without recrimination, after hours. And it had the best French Silk pie you could ever imagine! Their claim to fame? The original design for the Compaq PC was designed on a napkin from House of Pies. Oh yes, and their French silk pie.
We were feeling the evenings drink and enjoyed a hearty breakfast before we retreated to our home, or home stays.
Nanook and I slept together in Anna and Debra's bed, but not without a stern warning from Debra.
However, Anna made certain Debra stayed clear of our room. She looked in on us a few times and later I found out she took a picture of Nanook and I asleep, naked and... Nanook's husband accused me of getting her pregnant, twice. Each time she got pregnant, she had just been with me. So all the gay-bashers who say God did not mean for two women to be together because we cannot procreate. ....
Unfortunately, as far as Nanook was concerned, my newly acquired skills were not perpetuated beyond the reach of Debra. She said if I called her Debra again she was going to start referring to me as the slut..
Nanook left for home and her new husband, carrying her oldest son.
Life continued with the same level of absurd commitment to a future with Debra, me, and the children.
As the days passed, the nights moved with shadows and forbidden pleasures. There is no explaining what your imagination could make you see and feel.
But the inevitable came knocking, tearing down the door. I had to go home. Jackie was due back and he was not going to settle for my absence with the excuse of it being innocent company at his sister's.
