2353.1 — 8th Anniversary Vacation (add on)

As I posted earlier:

I’m in the Dallas-DFW area the weekend after Thanksgiving. If you would like to meet, I’ll be lunching at PFChang’s in Grapevine on Saturday at noon and PFChang’s on North Dallas Tollway Sunday at 1:00 pm. Visit if you care to; I’d love to meet you.

I will be in beard, blue blazer, and water-proof hairpiece once I doff my hat. Also, I could be tardy Sunday if church lets out late.

2353. 8th Anniversary Vacation

November 23 completes eight years of WWNH. Over 2.4 million hits, and a million words posted in the articles plus those added to your comments. They’ve been good years for me. I hope the same for you. Unfortunately, except for a few reports, relationship success is not yet as good as I hoped. Not quitting yet, though.

If I’ve touched lives, this is my favorite. A gal first commented in June 2008 (in college). She has interacted over the years with others and me. I can’t find the details now, but in order for a guy to become her boyfriend, she imposed demands to forgo his partying and develop his scholastic ability, or she was no girlfriend of his. He did, they graduated, eventually married. She probably recognizes her story, and perhaps she’ll let us know if they’re living happily ever after. She has been such a continual delight to chat with and exchange thoughts. I’m hopeful her WWNH education was more valuable than Dartmouth’s for her future life. Babies yet, darling?

As with hundreds of other readers, comments inspire expansion of many principles and clarification of my thoughts. I learn much from you all and especially those with questions. Love all of you; wish we could meet face to face.

I depart tomorrow for a trip that will last 14-15 days. Going to pay respects to friends and family in three states farther west.

I have and want no laptop. I’ll respond to comments and questions when I return in early December. So, you can keep asking. I may, however, drop in every few days if I find a friendly keyboard.

While I’m gone, mull over what I can do to improve the blog. Interest seems to be waning and I’d like to give it a rejuvenating jolt when I return. Married to a beautiful redhead for 59 years and married to the U.S. Navy for 23 years, I never learned to handle boredom. Don’t want it to set in on the blog.

I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving. Grace’s family invited me to theirs and it makes me feel kingly. Good people are great; good friends are greater, good family is greatest.

I’m in the Dallas-DFW area the weekend after Thanksgiving. If you would like to meet, I’ll be lunching at PFChang’s in Grapevine on Saturday at noon and PFChang’s on North Dallas Tollway Sunday at 1:00 pm. Visit if you care to; love to meet you.

Meanwhile, ponder these thoughts both for light-heartedness and a measure of reality. God gave chocolate to man so he could get the attention of woman. God told woman, don’t blame a man if you want to get and hold his attention.

2283. Attention, Ladies

I’ve had to break away from keyboard due to severe back pain. ER visit helped but treatment and meds haven’t worked yet. I’m not accustomed to back muscles overwhelming mind ‘muscles’. Not healed yet but I’ve returned to working on Recovery II about the way men love. Had a relapse this morning. If I don’t have another, I hope to publish by Monday.

2268. Love Ballads, Jukebox

Look what a fantastic jukebox someone sent me. The builder of this deserves great honor.

I pass it to you ladies to listen to very popular love ballads from back in the day. Back when the male gender respected the female gender more than its own and vice versa; it doesn’t get much closer to unconditional respect than that.

You may want to hear the loving words and music but also pay attention to the respect that underwrites the words that suggest respectable men very respectful of women. In those days, boys and men didn’t hit brazenly on women. They gently nudged themselves in close like respectable innocents seeking acceptance before advancing further. Listen to the song LINDA for the clearest expression of the idea. It’s how girls used to teach boys to be mannerly instead of overly bold and abrasive to female sensibility.

As I write this, I enjoy the section in the right column at top of home page titled “#1 Hits: 1945-1949.” Each at one time hit the top of the best 40 chart or Hit Parade. A lot of ballads are there. Some comic, silly, but popular ones are included> Some will make you laugh and perhaps smirk; culture shock, you know. In those days, this was mostly adolescent territory; they bought most of the records.

If you’re after love ballads, I suggest you move about pretty much in the 1930s through the 1950s and maybe a few in the 1960s.

P.S. I forgot something. You like romance? The love ballads taught boys about romance, what it is and what to do about it to please girls. Girls taught them the HOW of it. How do guys learn about romance today? It’s not part of the male nature.

Before I hit the road this am, know that I added this P.S. to 2266 — A Man’s Love: The Reality of It

P.S. Men inherit at birth the way they love as described above. It’s up to the women in their lives—moms, chaste girls, bachelorettes, and wives—to teach them to love in ways more pleasing to women.

2267. Attention, Ladies

I’m leaving town early Friday but expect to be back online Saturday morning. We have exciting exchanges going about a fiancé’s weekend soirees. Keep the pot stirred, ladies, until I get back. I’m sure we all have more to say.

Happy Birthday, Sir Guy!

Greetings, all. This is Guy Jr. One of the tangential benefits of being Sir Guy’s son is that I have admin privileges to his blog. It’s now after midnight EDT, so it’s official.

I hope you’ll join me in sending warm 34th birthday wishes (give or take half of a century) to my Pops. Not only is he a good man, he is a great man. He spends virtually every moment away from his daily duties on this blog. Trust me, I know.

His endeavors are timeless and tireless and remind me of another. My father has spent countless hours meditating and expounding on good thoughts in the hopes of bettering this world. In some ways, he could be a modern-day Confucius of relationships. Though not accepted by today’s mainstream thought, his wisdom is almost boundless and timeless, in my humble opinion.

Is he always right? Some would say not by a long shot, including my loving partner for nearly 5 years (and we argue regularly about WWNH, but let’s not revisit Lauren and our disagreements on this joyous occasion.) But who is or was, other than The Christ?

Please don’t misconstrue any comparisons. I am certainly not making those. I merely highlight the efforts of one man sharing his wisdom attempting to reclaim a long-lost culture of relative happiness, harmony, and prosperity among us. And we all know that is no easy task given the forces aligned against these tenets in 21st century America. But he fights on, undeterred. Even by me, his son, when we disagree.

Carry on, Commander Dean (USN Ret.). Continue the good fight. We are so proud and appreciative of you.

Happy Birthday, Pops. Stay strong. Stay healthy. We need many more April 19th’s from you.

Tons of man love, respect, and pride,

Allen (Guy Jr.)
