We're a happy family, me, mom, and daddy.
Above we see my dear friend Amy (the one with the silly hat and the baby), her husband Gary, and, of course, Baby Noah.
Amy and I have known each other forever, well, since high school. In fact she was my jr. prom date, 1980 I think??? We have
been thru a lot together and Amy is as much part of my family as any blood relation. Thanks for a shitload of great memories,
Lady Insane. Incidently, these pix are of people I consider my very best friends, almost like family :)))
THE WHOLE GANG
This is Dwayne L. Baxter. He was one of my best friends. I say "was" because he has since died. I learned so many
things from Dwayne, like tolerance, acceptance, and boy, he really knew how to have a good time. I love Dwayne as much as
one person CAN love another. He was my spiritual brother and I think of him every day. I was honored to be his friend. His
This is my friend Linda. I met Linda while working for the same company as she when I lived
in Delaware, so we used to talk on the phone all the time, checking merchandise, talking about this and that. One day I decided
to show up at HER store, and we have been the closest of friends ever since. I was always able to be myself around Linda and
in the almost 15 years I have known her, I dont think we have ever had a single argument, a single disagreement. I simply
adore Linda and would do anything for her. My feelings for her go beyond friend, beyond love, she is family.
This is my friend Bill. I first me Bill a
few years ago at the Dekalb County Health Clinic. He was my therapist!! Aint that a kick in the rubber parts?! Well, now he's
living in Maine with his partner, and we have become famous friends and have formed a bond that 1,000 miles isnt going
I met Jeanie (aka JaeCie) when I was working for a small
ticket agency that was handling the ticketing for the GLAMA Awards, and award for which Jeanie had been nominated. (Gay and
Lesbian American Music Awards....i think.) No, she didn't win, but the nomination was an important honor. Jeanie's music is
part rock, part jazz, and part inspiration. Jeanie is an accomplished musician, withe several albums under her belt. Visit
her fantastic website, d/l her music, and tell her Scott sent you!
This is one of my closest friends and roommate, Randy. We've
known each other about 8 years and met when I was just a wee-tot on AOL and we just started chatting one night, realized we
had a lot on common, and have since then become great friends. Randy is a friend I can hang out with, go to dinner, out for
a game of pool (if he can get me out), and one of the few people I know who really knows what a friend is. And as a roommate,
he is awesome. I couldnt ask for a better friend.
Above is a picture from my 38th birthday. That's (l-r) me, my best friend Amy, and another very special
friend, Erika. It was a small intimate gathering of my nearest and dearest, thrown together by my friend Roger, who's pic
is on this page as well. It was a really special evening full of booze, drugs, and wild women. No actually, there werent any
Patrice Bonnen. Spiritual sister.
She's my moon spirit (those late nite swims!!) and one of the dearest people I know. We've been friends for about 15
This is my sister
Jennifer. I have included her here on this page because she is more than my sister. She is my friend. As we got older, we
found out that we had a lot in common, and now, though I love her dearly as my sister, I value our friendship as well and
stay in constant contact with her (even though she is in California and I am in Georgia). I am very proud of Jennifer, having
recently completed her PhD and now teaching in South California. If you want to contact Jennifer or get information on any
of her research projects, please email me and I will get the message to her.
No, I don't know him, but, well, it's so small.
Who'da thunk it.
Above is a picture of my friend Kelly Wright (nee Ericksen) and her adorable son Kaleb. Kelly and I have been friends for
years, have been through a lot together, and I value her friendship more than she could know. Although there is a substantial
age difference (she is much younger than me) we have always been able to connect on a higher level. Love you, Kaleilei and
This is Barb,
my beautiful friend from DC. I met Barb through a Yahoo club and we REALLY clicked and, well, I just adore her. I wish
Barb lived closer as we would be hanging out all the time. Maybe one day I will make it to DC and visit this georgeous gal!!
I love ya, baby!
This is my friend, Jaime. I met her thru one
of my e-groups and we clicked immediately. I have made it my personal mission to supply her with the best music I can burn.
Jaime is a sweet, pretty, funny girl with a great personality, VERY upbeat and always makes me smile. I wouldn't trade our
friendship for anything in the world. Love ya, baby!
This is my friend Suzan. We have been freinds for many years and, though we have lost touch
a few times, our freindship is still as strong as ever. Suzan is back in my life now, and married to a really great guy, Joe, probably
THE most liberal redneck I know, and also, a very good friend.
This is a pic of an old friend/lover, Steven.
We were together during the mid 80's while I was living in Wilmington, Delaware (he lived in Philly-only a short drive from
Wilmington.) We had a great relationship and were very close. I have long since lost touch with Steve, but maybe by posting
his pic here there's a slim chance he or someone who knows him might see it. I think about Steve often. I'd really like to
get back in touch with him.
It was a night out (a what?!) A NIGHT OUT that
they would remember for a long, long time. One night in Philly, 1986 (I'm guessing), l-r: Dwayne, Steve, Lee (I was the one
taking the picture).
This is my dear friend Roger. We met years ago when I was
involved with someone else. We lost touch but then reconnected again a short time ago, dated for a while, it didnt work, but
we have remained good friends. No, GREAT friends. Roger is a real "pistol. This pic was taken in Chatanooga, Tn, the sign
Roger is holding says "All madams must keep their girls off the streets at night." HOW appropriate!! LOL (Roger is going to
kill me for publishing this pic.)"
This is my friend Stephen. We met online about a year and
a half ago and have become the best of friends. I love spending time with Stephen and we get along just great. He is a kind,
gentle, funny man who I am blessed to have in my life. Stephen and I have a very special relationship, more than friends,
almost like family. I truly love Stephen and know that he will be a part of me for the rest of my life. (Here's to YOU, Stephen!
