The Three Bears are on vacation going to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. To coincide with our trip there, today’s Furry Friday features pictures of bearded men related (somehow) to Gatlinburg, Tennessee or vacationing in general.
Where is Gatlinburg? It’s a small yet busy touristy city about 40 miles southeast of Knoxville. It’s not far from Dollywood and features amusement parks, nature trails through the Great Smoky Mountains, places of interest like Ripley’s Believe It or Not, plus… Continue reading
Not only is today Furry Friday, it’s also National Book Lover’s Day!
In honor of that day, both myself and Daddy Bear have found an assortment of pictures showing bearded men reading books.
Vote for your favorite furry bibliophiles!

Fifty years ago this month gay people finally said, “No!” The Stonewall Inn was raided once again and a bunch of drag queens and butch dykes said, “No!”
It turned into a riot that wound up lasting for five days. Fifty years ago the gay rights movement really began. Because it was with fists and fire and shouting and fighting back. Thank goodness the seeds had been planted earlier with groups like Mattachine Society and Daughters of Bilitis. But it wasn’t until blood was shed, police blood, that gay and lesbian people let the world know that we had had enough.
In honor of that, this month, I am going to be making a number of posts of essays I’m writing, posts of personal experiences, and re-posts from other sources!
Long live all people and long live us telling those who don’t like us, “We’re here! We’re queer! Get used to it!”
And I will start things by posting pictures from Gay Pride here in Kansas City, which is my husband Noah’s very first Gay Pride. Noah and Iwere both so sad that out husband “R” had to work (his work shift is nights now, and the first weekend of the month is mandatory overtime), but he gave his blessing for us to go.
Thank you, “R!” We love you! Continue reading
Furry men and their furry friends has been a popular feature here at Furry Friday, and I have a ton of wonderful pictures. It gave me some good excuses to do yet another “Man’s Best Friend.” And I still have a tone of pictures I haven’t used. It was really difficult to whittle them down to ten pictures + three weeks = 30 pictures.
Let me know if you want to see more! But it won’t be next week! I have something very special planned! But for that, you’ll just have to wait to see!
HUGS and WOOF!

No! Really. It is!
Of course this happened to honor our furry stuffed animal friends that got us through many a rough or tough or sad situation growing up…our teddy bears (or their equivalent).
Through scary nights or hospital stays or life tragedies we had trouble understanding, our teddies always lent an ear and were there to hug no matter what.
And during this time of year where we reflect on all we have to be thankful for, and on this day, National Hg a Bear Day, I am thankful for bears.
The kind l cuddled when Continue reading
