GCB0126 – New Relationship and Outdoor Adventures

Episode 126 finds me talking about things I’ve been doing lately, including getting into a new relationship. It’s not actually new as we’ve been seeing each other since January. There has thankfully been some outside adventures as of late. They have been much needed. Hopefully there will be many more in the near future.

GCB0125 – It Has Been A While

Hello to all! It’s been a while since I have posted a new episode of The Gay Life of a Country Boy. After hearing on a few podcasts that people wanted to hear from me again, I felt compelled to do an episode. Thank you to the people who have reached out and have wanted to hear from me. I hope that I can record more frequently now and have something to say other than sharing bouts of depression. Take care everyone!

GCB0123 – Goodbye SIR Alan

On January 14, 2016, Dr. Alan Penrod, or to us, SIR Alan, was taken from us…his family, partner, boy, friends, and the leather community. He was a wonderful man with such a loving soul. Some saw him as intimidating and in some ways he was. I thought he was…until one night, I walked up to him and introduced myself and sought his friendship. I am thankful every day that I shared that moment in time with him along with many others afterward. I was blessed to know the man inside that gorgeous, muscle bound body and I will forever be changed. I will be able to tell others who come into the community, in years to come, about the loving “giant” who wanted nothing more than for everyone to have a peaceful life filled with excitement and knowledge. He wanted everyone to find the person inside and live that person.

I remember a conversation I had with SIR Alan the night I met him. I had come to the conclusion that I wanted to be a leather Sir myself. When I told him that I was interested in this, his first words were, “Oh! OK!” I should have known from that sound, and the accompanying facial expression, that he saw right through me. He, however, continued with the conversation and tried to find the basis and possible execution of my plan. I told him I was in the process of reading a book and doing my research. When I told him the book I was reading, he said, “You can continue to read that book if you would like to read porn and get off to it. But, that is all it is good for. You have to be yourself and if that happens to be a Sir, then you’ll know it. You don’t need that damn book to tell you anything.” I didn’t pick up that book again.

Another thing he told one of our fellow Panther brothers was that, “Daddy needs a daddy sometime.” Being a Sir, he knew there were times when even the toughest of men needed someone to take care of their needs. I remember when I heard those words, I was dumbfounded. Being “taken aback” doesn’t come close to describe my reaction to that statement. That would be like Superman needing someone of more strength and power to look up to for his own strength. I saw him as Superman. But imaging a man, past title holder of Mr. International Leather Sir, always being looked at as handler, master, daddy, and of course, Sir. There were expectations. There were things only he seemed to be able to do (not just because of his level of OCD). With all this pressure, all the time, of course he occasionally needed to let off steam. As much as we raised him to higher levels than humanly possible, he was still a man. We couldn’t fault him for that and never would we try.

SIR Alan will forever be in our hearts and the courage he showed us will always live on inside us.

GCB0122 – Testing Out The New Toy

This is my Christmas review episode. Yeah, it has taken me a while to get it completed and uploaded. Things take time, I say!

To some, the contents of this show may be a tad on the TMI side. That’s OK! I’m thinking the future of this show is going to change a bit and hopefully people will continue to listen. I’m presently going through some life changes and I want to take the show along with me. That’s going to be good, bad, sexy, perverted, and everything in between. I don’t know where it’s going and that’s what is going to keep this show alive. The events that stand ahead are going to be…well…mysteries to you as well as it is to me. Enjoy the ride!
