If legislation passes on Civil Unions it will be what it will be. I will trust God to sort things out in God's own time. As I opine the issue right now is that I must ask myself and dare ask you; if you are a person that believes in God; does your own marriage reflect your belief? That my friends is the question believers must answer and will be held accountable for. For my many brothers and sisters who are for whatever reason of their own conscience non-believers that are in heterosexual marriages ask yourselves if you are living up to your own vows? As for me,I thank God I won't be judged for what another chooses to do. I also thank God for the greatest gift other than my salvation, my wife.
A couple of months or so ago I attended a "Play Date" with some mutual friend of the fella that was putting the affair on in a downtown location. Frankly, I only went to provide some financial encouragement for my "Nupes." Well, allow me to say that even with the decades I have under my belt I found the venue quite refreshing. I plan to attend the March event with the wife. I've told other friends about it and suggested to some younger acquaintances that they might find it a great alternative to the rip-off "VIP" lines and costs. It's a diverse crowd. That alone is a fresh look for Memphis. You can can have fun playing or a good laugh watching other adults get in touch with their "inner child" after a week of being "professional." You can let the "airs' go, let your hair down, or take your shoes off for twister if you choose and, a can of coke doesn't cost the same as a shot of Patron. Just have fun, meet people who can hold a conversation. Play or just enjoy being around people who just wanna have fun. Try it. You'll like it!

I visited the venue a a couple of months or so ago at the request of a couple of friends that put the event on. I mean, I simply went along with other mutual friends to support my "Nupes" financially in what I considered a bold venture for Memphis. Well, even with the decades I have under my belt I found it refreshing. I plan to take the wife to the upcomming event and I suggested to my kids (all adults) that it would be an enjoyable change of pace without the drama that goes with most spots and there are no "VIP" rip-off fees. It's a diverse crowd and that alone makes it a fresh idea for Memphis. Try it, you'll like it. Kudos and success to the local entrepenuers that believed Memphis folks really wanted something less provincial.
