Imagine the absurdity of two openly gay, married, middle aged, middle class men escaping the liberal sanctuary of anonymous London to relocate to a Muslim country. I chronicled our exploits with the mad, the bad, the sad and the glad in a blog for the whole world to ignore. Then came the book which became a critically acclaimed best seller. Its success opened out a whole new career for me, firstly as an author, and now as a publisher. Who'd have thought it? Certainly not me.
In June 2012, we ended our Anatolian affair and paddled back to Britain on the evening tide, washing up in Norwich, a surprising city in eastern England, then to the wilds of Norfolk as the only gays in the village. I’m sometimes nostalgic for our encounters with the hopeless, the hapless and, yes, the happy go lucky. They gave me an unexpected tale to tell and for this I thank them.

So glad to see you are doing well. 🙂
The pics are wonderful! Ah…I envy the traveling over holiday. I spent Christmas tucked away with me and mine on my Iowa acreage. Kudo’s to getting out and about. Lol!
I’m going to try and find time to read over some of your past posts so I can play catch-up, Babe.
Much love and kisses from me to you. -Pissy-
Well, hello stranger! Welcome back! 😀
Ah, Jack, you missed me, didn’t ya, babe? LOL!
That just warms my furry little heart.
Oh, how I’ve missed all of you. Miss Pissy was tickled pink to find you still on here. Where the heck has everyone else gone to? I was reading some of my old posts and the conversations we all had in comments. Pissy is sad. Most everyone I once loved and cherished are now gone. Gone to the no-more-blogging zone. tsk…tsk.. But you’re still here and I’m excited as hell that you are rockin it! Good for you, hon. Make the most of the life you’ve got. 🙂
People move on, get bored, get a life! 😀 Blogging isn’t what it once was. Facebook is where it’s at now 😦
