The issues studied included soil, aquatic, forestry, wildlife, and current environmental problems. Winners move on to provincial, national and international competitions.
Story #1: In additional to my teacher-colleagues, there were a handful other men called in to act as judges. They all worked in the north woods as foresters, environmentalists, watershed management specialists, aquatic biologists and other similar jobs. Note: there were several woman judges, too.
All were fit, rugged, relaxed, outdoorsy hunks with facial scruff, ready smiles and clear, sparkling eyes. My favourite type of men! .... and such a contrast from big-city commuter men who often look (to me) stressed, unhealthy and unhappy.
I was smitten! I spent the day consumed with lust, especially over Kyle, a gorgeous, lanky, shaggy-haired, 6'-4" ginger-bearded forester who made an effort to remember my name, and I had forgotten his!. Hunky Forester went out of his way to chat with me throughout the day.
He looked exactly like the model to the right, but without the GQ wardrobe.
All the outdoorsy hunks wore jeans or work pants and work boots; an irresistible, sexy combination, all the better for showing off their beautiful asses and muscular thighs .... although sadly, their pants were too loose to accentuate their bulges. :-(
Story #2: Back at home, I was telling my daughter about my weekend; the same daughter who accidentally met my sweet Brazilian boy last week. I told her that Mr. Smith (chair of my department) was there with his new girlfriend.
Daughter: What? He attended a student event with his girlfriend? Did they sleep in the same cabin?
Buddy Bear: Yes, they weren't hiding it. I don't see anything wrong with that. At least she was age-appropriate! (they're both in their mid-50s)
Daughter: That's more than I can say for you! Why didn't you bring Lucas* along! You could have had a romantic evening in front of the campfire! (shrieks with laughter) * my sweet Brazilian boy
Buddy Bear: Ya, right! Me, Lucas and thirty teenagers!
Daughter: (makes smooching and kissing sounds)
Buddy Bear: That's enough!
She's going to torment me about my "boys" for the rest of my life, I fear. lol
