Pimping???

    I've never been particularly fond of that term we use here in J-Land for highlighting, promoting, celebrating or recommending another journal but ... I do adore the early writers in this community that started the J-Land journal pimping tradition.

      I remember being Pimped by the legendary Slo-Mo <--when I first started writing here. Slo, I'll never forget you for that, miss you girl ... really, really miss you.

     So without further adieu and in the spirit of that tradition ... here's pimping Bobpublicover, The Aids Diaries or The Last Brontosaurs!

     Bobpublicover's journal documents the ups and downs of a 50 something gay male, living with HIV for at least the last 27 years.

     I've been reading this journal for a while now and always look forward to a new entry. Bob has an important story to tell and there are just not enough people hearing it yet. I hope that you will all pay him a visit <--.

     That girl thinks she's a P-I-M-P, lol

     Ummm ... that really is me in the photo above (the one in the middle), it was taken over 25 years ago... Mardi Gras costumes I believe!

Well as usual you have again astonished me!! I checked out Bob's journal like you asked and low and behold he and I live in the same city somerville, MA. I have never known him but put his journal on my alert list thanks to you. I will ask my daughter kelley if she has heard of him as she is on a couple of city committees as that is her passion of trying to help with the "drug" problems that have hit our city in the past years.Her passion comes from her daughter Caitlin ( my loving 12yr. old grandaughter)losing her dad three years ago to that dred opiate "oxy-cotin" Since then Kelley although they were never married, has made a decision to try and make something positive out of his death for his daughter. Thanks again for bringing yet again another story close to our hearts.

Thanks for the heads-up, Coy, I'll check out Bob.  I wonder if you ever visit the new journal on blogger that seven other aol journalers and I formed last month?  The Blue Voice?  There's a button on my sidebar, come take a look.  It means I haven't been around aol-j-land much, but as i have a few weeks of vacation coming up - i hope to remedy that!
