Looks like an update is in order. Yes, I'm constantly on the road, about 10-months of the year I'm traveling. I'm literally everywhere, but tend to stick mostly to the west coast and Texas -- simply because that's where i get the most use of Spanish. I've also recently worked in three different cities in Florida. And before that, just in the last 5-months -- Hawaii, Maine, Boston, all over California, Washington, Oregon, and even London, Ontario, where i worked nearly all last summer. I've closed just about every franchise store you can think of. Most of the big stores are not going out of business, it's more a case of tightening their belts and downsizing. But enough shop talk.

The thing about the the porn industry is that they always need a good fluffer. I took the job seriously and excelled at it. If your a hard worker, you can always find work. I've never criticized any occupation that pays a person's bills. Big Frank always said, "Never criticize anyone's work when the work is putting food on the table and feeding their family."

Whenever I'm not working, I'm writing. And whenever I'm not writing, I'm riding motorcycles and shooting video's of riding motorcycles..

That's fantastic! Really excellent. Love the Irish guy. Love the African American woman. I'm sure I have run into her several times up in the Malibu Hills, at the "Rock Store;" I'm there about every 6-weeks. I keep a new motorcycle out in California and make a lot of my own videos from the canyon rides, but nothing anywhere near this quality. This is Film Making quality. Any documentary that makes the DR look good I support 100%. Can't wait to see it!

Here's a little video I just made three weeks ago while I was out there working. The African lady from Robert Cooper's video might be in my video. There's a classic & exotic car get together (Cars & Coffee) every Sunday morning. Jay Leno usually shows up in something weird or rare. There's also actors, producers, and various famous people from surrounding Southern California that come down the PCH to show off their latest toy. Afterwards, a lot of people, myself included, head up into the canyons to race the canyon roads against other people. There are literally hundreds of exotic cars and motorcycles that show up every Sunday. Not sure how to attach a video, but here it goes:

Hey, boss, please let me know if you ever come thought Big "D".
Years ago, I was supposed to travel to Cabarete to meet you and the gorgon, but it never materialized. It seems that once I arrive on the east coast, I tend to remain there for the duration.
So, brother Frank, please let me know if Dallas is in your itinerary this summer.

How about Shayla (I likely spelled her name wrong)?
She was / is a nurse that commuted between NYC and Santiago. She was always outspoken and refreshingly open.
Awwwww, thank you!
Still in DR. Barely check up on here cuz it got boring. I’m still commuting but am only working around 4-5 months out of the year now. Ex. Just got a contract from June to August then I’ll be off again until Feb 2023 😊
Finally built my dream home! Should be done in a couple of months because of course it went over the given time frame.
So funny that the people that said I wouldn’t last a year are gone or old as f*ck and here I am 15 years later (Oh sh*t, that means I’M old as f*ck too! LOL)
Thanks for wondering where I was and saying I was refreshing!!!!
Here’s a pic of my house in progress ❤️

I was first on here way back in about 2007 and contributed for a couple years off and on, then just faded away. But now retired and looking to spend more time in the DR, now that my mom is situated and living full time with my sister and brother in law as she was diagnosed with dementia just after I retired, I'm considering a move, possibly to Florida for a US base, but also to travel more often and for longer time periods, to the DR and elsewhere.

I do recognize some of the older board handles still posting, even have spoken to one or two in person on my last couple of trips, as well as those folks who have unfortunately passed. I'll be on here now with more frequency, reading and learning from others. Definitely a feeling of greater appreciation for the country now and looking forward to getting up to speed with some of the threads that draw my interest.

Cheers!
