The RT Cave...

I know it's been a while since I've posted... There's a lot going on here and I'm just trying to play catch~up. Things at work, things in my personal life... I'll let you all know later what's going on. Nothing major or earth~shattering, just the run of the mill, "what-the-fuck" moments that only I can attract. Tomorrow I actually have a lunch date with a lady... I'm not going to let anything cloud my judgment, I'll just see what happens. It's only lunch. I'm 44 and have been burnt far too many times to let a pretty face lead me to start thinking with the wrong head again...

Now on to what else has been on my mind... I've posted the above photo of the RT Homestead here in Purgatory, but I'd thought I'd let you see a little deeper into the Inner~Sanctum where I, Ranger Tom, relaxes when I'm not at work... So I've decide to share the photos with you!
My living room, where I sit on my leather easy chair to watch the news, or BS with buddies from work when they stop by after work to enjoy a few frosty~cold adult beverages after work with me...
Nothing that will make Good Housekeeping, but I'm proud of it...

It's a work in progress, I still need to get the drapes up... But it's getting so hard to find a good set of drapes that match the carpet.... Or a carpet that matches the drapes... You get the message, I think...
So here's another little peek into Ranger Tom's life... Relaxing and mundane... But never, ever boring!

The fire Marshal is coming over next week to inspect the fireplace to make sure I can use it... I like a good fire once in a while. They're very relaxing.

Wow!
First of all, is that one of those famous Amrican clapboard houses? I WANT ONE!

You are such a romantic with the candles and Casablanca movie poster.And you're so tidy[prhaps anal?]
I LOVE it[but have made a few changes in my mind. I hope you don't mind].
Cream shag rub and cream faux crushed velevet curtains with good quality faux fur cushions and a throw[ run over to fabulous furs online].

Thne we need to reface fireplace with marble veneers and get a marble bust of someone of status[like Mozart or Eminem] so we can look cultured.

I say 'we' cuz I am moving in !!![ so will need to see bedroom,bathroom and kitchen please] and will be undertaking all this work whilst you're at work!

I have exceptional decorating taste and you mak obscenely good money- we are the perfect match.

And you're tidy[perhaps anal].


The old man's chair will hav to go though[how cliche is that?]....

so when can I move in????

Oh wait.....

DID YOU SAY THAT YOU'RE MEETING SOME WOMAN FOR LUNCH?


In that case, &%^$$£!&^^ you! And you're *&$£! recliner!


* I'd still lovee to see the rst of the house[which I will now be taking away from you!]

Isn't single life grand?

Just telling it like it is said...

Very nice...you like to cook too...I thought you would fall astray for my pretty face no?
Good luck on the date!!!

Told ya before I like where your going with the decor. The dark colors offset the bright pink walls. Some may say the walls match your personality better but I will not name names to protect the honest.

Ranger Tom said...

Uber: I'm not sure what style it is... I can guess from the state of the wiring and the plaster & lath walls it was build in the mid 1930's... And since you're moving in I'll cancel my lunch date today... I'd much rather be with someone with such impeccably good decorating sense! And you won't be the first woman who got a house off of me!

Just Telling It: Have I lost "Panty Dropper" status? Seems like we both enjoy cooking things up in the kitchen ;)

Bill: I'll break your other foot if you keep it up!

Ranger, love the space dude! Beats the hell out of the cramped flats we pay a small fortune to live in here in the UK.
In terms of the decor, is that what Frasier would call an eclectic mix?

Ranger Tom said...

Exzanian: Very ecclectic... Just like my taste in music. A hodgepodge of stuff thrown together, but for me, it works. I'm glad you like!

Just telling it like it is said...

why no you haven't dropped status...you know how I like it in the kitchen...

Uber now that was very clever and funny!!

FishEagle said...

LOVE it!

Mushy said...

Nice peek...thanks. I really liked the movie posters...adds the personal touch.

leazwell said...

The movie poster on the left, Casablanca?

Kimberly said...

So your hosting a Super Bowl party? I can bring the beer.

Ranger Tom said...

FishEagle: I'm glad you like!

Mushy: I thought it ads a nice touch. Not your typical bachelor pad, as I'm not your typical bachelor!

Leazwell: Sure is... Click on the pics, they'll enlarge... Get a better look!

Kimberly: Anyone showing up at my house bringing beer is ALWAYS welcome anytime! Superbowl or no Superbowl!!!!

Just telling it like it is said...

alright Tom where are you?
