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!

Jeffrey! Savannah Neal here. You sound like a kindred spirit.
Jeffrey, this is Michael from central Virginia. I always loving reading Sean’s posts. Nice to meet you.
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

Hi Jeffrey! Say, what martini goes best with Skip-Bo?
Hi Jeffrey! Sassy should let you guest post more often.
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.
Did you get your martini?
Thank you for taking good care of Sean. I feel he appreciates you very much, but we appreciate you too.

So good to meet you, Jeffrey. I wonder what kind of martini you ended up with.
So good to hear from you/see you Jeffrey! You look so much more like Jeffrey than you did disguised as Orville Peck.
We should organize lunch the next time Mitchell is in NYC. We may have met in Delaware, a few years ago.

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!
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.
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.
Yes yes yes do this more often if not regularly. May I suggest a weekly column “Jeffrey’s something or other?
