I was given permission to post this on our blog. Please read. This might be a post not many even comment on…sad but true. Too intense? Too political? I don’t know but hope it’s read.
It is very heart warming and humbling to know our blog about everything can influence a person like to this to share their horrific story and then thank us for publicly posting who we are….people are amazing and this is one reason I try to diversify our BLOG.
I have been reading your blog now for a while and have really enjoyed it. I just wanted to share with you how much it means to me and to thank you for the time you have put into it – sharing so much of your life. Also to Cheryl for her work with the It get’s better video. I had seen the video first and then somehow stumbled upon your blog. It has meant the world to me to see your lives together as normal and healthy – something to be celebrated and lived. In the video I had never heard women speak of their lives and sexuality in such a positive way and it captivated me. Growing up – gay only meant men and it was directly connected with rejection, Continue reading

I guess there is no need to really write a post when one gets married. In summary, we have been together for 16 years common law, Cheryl proposes one day out of the blue, a year later we are getting hitched for “real” up in Egmont, BC @ the Westcoast Wilderness Lodge with 60 of our closest family and friends. WE wished we could have invited more. Continue reading
This one is a sure keeper from our wedding day August 14th, 2013…for those who don’t know we have been together 16 years and got hitched this summer….
after 16 years of common law we made it official with family/friends and of course our bikes on August 14th, 2013
We just got back on Thursday, August 28th from a 4 night mini-moon bike ride…it was amazing. Rode some back country roads we have never been on and the best part got to see yet another part of our beautiful Province. Weather was OK for the most part until the last 2 days. It rained on us riding back to Pemberton via the Highline and then it POURED on us heading home. No biggie we always stay dry wearing our KLIM Traverse gear. We started out on the Sea to Sky Highway the 99. Can’t get much closer to the water when you ride this route.
It’s a scenic drive and for those who are not from here this road takes you to Whistler the home of the Winter 2010 Olympics. Continue reading
In the mean while here are a few pics that highlight our wedding adventure from August 14th 2013….
It won’t be long until Cheryl and I take the next step after living Common Law for 16 years into the world of Legal MARRIAGE. After all the fuss being made over in Russia about the anti gay movement I thought it would be a perfect post in honor of our right to be with whomever we want in Canada.
Today was Vancouver annual Pride Parade and Cheryl and her colleagues represented the RCMP
and marched along with all those colorful human beings expressing their right to Love anyone they want. Isn’t that what it’s all about????
Had a great time with a bunch of colleagues that we also call friends at our home for our pre wedding shower. Traditionally the wedding couple do not host the shower but I insisted we have it here and all our friends brought the food and goodies to us. Beautiful day on our deck we built and finished, so all was good. Wedding date August 14th 2013….right around the corner.

Once again there are twists and turns in the life of Cheryl & Leslie. After 15 years as many who read this blog Cheryl proposed to Leslie and we are going to get hitched next summer 2013. Yep, in Canada we too can join the sector of marriage and it’s legal. I know this is a hot topic for many but at this point in our lives and careers we really have little patience for those who struggle with any two people who love each other and want to show their commitment in whatever fashion they choose.
