Jeffrey Joins In

Hello blogger fans – this is Sean’s husbear, Jeffrey. I’m filling in for him tonight while he searches the internet for low carb, gluten free desserts.  I am also involved in a not so secret plot to guilt him into making martinis for both of us tonight. He did such a great job making dinner, and he should finish the evening out with great drinks. 

I have met a few of you over the years, and have probably heard of you all as Sean has mentioned your blog posts in an attempt to keep me up to speed.   While I consider some of you as close as siblings, and some as more distant cousins, I know that you are all important to Sean, and so also to me. 

I hope you don’t mind that I weaseled my way into the blog. 

Here is a short list of things you may not have known about me:

  • In high school I played the cornet 
  • In college I played the part of loner
  • When I was young I was on prescribed drugs to give me an appetite, because I was so thin
  • I still have an appetite, and I’m no longer thin. I blame the medical community. 🙂
  • I love a good martini

I hope I get to meet more of you someday.  Cheers!

  1. Jeffrey, how wonderful to hear and learn about you. I hope I am a distant cousin and maybe can climb to a sibling in time.
    Please continue to hijack the blog and tell us more about you and feel free to share any secrets about Sean (LOL)
    I am the goat guy in Wisconsin. Hope you get the martini(s).
    Please have one for me. Hugs

  2. Jeffrey,
    This is Linda from Alabama. What a nice surprise! I enjoyed your post introducing yourself. When he finds a good dessert, maybe he will tell us. I suppose I am a distant cousin.


  3. Thanks everyone for your warm welcome. I did get a martini (three in fact). I’m a plus-size guy, so that is like half a martini for someone of “normal” size. Ha! Sean’s martini was made with Empress gin and dry vermouth. But my martinis only contain Tanqueray. Either brand is perfect during a game of Skip-Bo. My martinis are always gin martinis, and I’ll drink the gin that is served. But if I’m buying the gin, I always get Tanqueray. (Yes, I also bought the Empress, but that was for Sean.) And finally, I love lunch (in NYC or elsewhere.) Hugs all around!


  4. Hi Jeffrey–the man behind the fringes!! We have heard a lot about how wonderful you are!
    Throughout my childhood I took piano and violin lessons. I regret that I didn’t take them seriously and only practiced enough to ensure the teachers would not tell my parents I didn’t practice. In high school, I felt bullied and so therefore didn’t socialize much. I got to college and I became more social. My partner who passed away due to Covid loved a good martini–he liked them dirty and liked ones made with clam juice. I love a good beer. I cannot determine a good versus a bad wine–and therefore can drink the 3 buck, now 5 buck Chuck at Trader Joes.


  5. Thank you for your kind words. It sounds like we might have much in common.

    I didn’t pursue my musical foray with much passion, either. And unfortunately my crippling insecurity lasted far too long. I didn’t really begin to overcome that until after I met Sean. And I still struggle with it.

    My condolences on the loss of your partner. I can only imagine how difficult that has been.

    I was a beer guy for many years. But I distinctly remember my first martini, served to me at one of Sean’s coworker’s at her home. Then I was hooked. It also took a long time for me to learn to enjoy wine.

    I think the most important thing is to know what you like, and be okay if what you like changes when the time.
