Over the Years

I’ve mentioned a couple times that this month marks 15 years for me online; not just my website, but camming, as well.

It is crazy to think that what started out as extra money on the side turned into my main gig. It’s something I would not have imagined in the beginning and I will never take it for granted. I am lucky to have found my place in this online world that we all share.

For this post, I’d like to recognize those long time members (and cam viewers) that have been with me since the beginning. Each one of you have shared a part of you with me, and we’ve stayed connected throughout our lives and for that, I am grateful for. It is truly amazing the relationships that have been built on the world wide webs and with all of your choices, for you to have found me and stuck around means more to me than you might know.

I have met many of you, from the NYC bar meets, to the Arizona gatherings, to the annual birthday bashes that I hosted in my home. And, of course, let’s not forget the few conventions I’ve attended. You took the time to show up, and I realize how easy it would have been to blow off, but instead you joined me over dinners, for a beer (or 10) and stopped by whatever booth I was sitting at during conventions. Thank you.

There are also several that I have not had the chance to meet, but that is because distance is our enemy. That does not, in any way, take away from my gratitude towards you. You have continued to support me online and you share your weekend plans, your week’s struggles and your life celebrations. Thank you.

There are too many to list here, but whether you’ve been with me from the very first site I showed my face on, or you found me a couple years later when I was confident in what I was doing and not so awkwardly weird, I appreciate your loyalty. Thank you.

From the Brother and SIL

In this 15th year of being online, I am reflecting on relationships I’ve had over the years.

This contemplation goes back to my first year on cam. He was an older gentleman who was a war veteran and he was lonely. To put it simply, he wanted a companion and he found that online. He would join me for a private session each morning, shortly after I started my day. It most often was spent talking, and him sharing with me what was on his mind while I mostly listened and chimed in when I felt he needed to know that I was still paying attention.

He surprised me by finding my website and subsequently my email, which allowed us to discuss more than just what the cam site allowed. We exchanged many emails. I had become his pen pal, and I was happy to fulfill his need for human contact.

One day he told me that he was going to be in the San Antonio area for awhile, getting treatment at the Military Hospital. We talked about meeting up for lunch, if he was feeling up to getting out.

A few months went by and I wondered if he was stuck at the medical complex or if he had found someone to fill the void that he was experiencing in his daily life.

One day I received an email from a couple that started out by explaining who they were. He was the brother of my pen pal and she was his sister-in-law. They were in their 70’s and before they explained why they were writing they wanted me to understand that they did not have any issues with what I do for a living. They were writing to tell me that my friend was sicker than anyone realized and he had died the week prior but before he did he asked them to reach out to me, without giving them any information on who I was. Once they had a chance, they did their research and decided to keep their word. In the end, they both thanked me for giving their loved one the respect and time he deserved and asked if I would mind keeping in touch with them. I was flabbergasted, to say the least, and I obliged by writing to them at least once a week until they stopped responding.

This is just one of many incredible connections I’ve made in the 15 years online.

April 2021: 15 Years Online

As I am sitting in front of the computer, I am trying to figure out how to express the gratitude that I have for the relationships I have been fortunate to make in the world wide web of online amateur porn, and I am at a loss for words.

When I started this in 2006, it was less than a hobby, it was more for extra money.

Online porn had already been around for several years when I walked into the room, and I started on Southern Charms. I was buried on page 100, or something like that, with no real way to make a mark. I joined an SC Bash (which was a huge gathering at one time) and met several ladies who were also on Dreamnet; it was a smaller network with a full grid, but not a thousand pages to filter through. It was a much better fit for me.

I have met such amazing people through my site, which has longevity in members, some dating back to 2006-2007 era, which is pretty damn incredible. It is something I never imagined when I first tossed a few pictures up and said – “hey, I am from Texas and here are some pictures of me in the hill country. Write me sometime if you want, or don’t, whatever.”

Some of you I have met in person, and some I have not, but I feel a connection to you all and that is why I continue to maintain my site. It would be easy to skip a week here and there, or slow the new releases down to once every other week, but the simple truth is that the loyalty I have been given by so many of you is the reason I continue to produce new content. You drive me to continue giving you what your subscription promises and because of that, I thank you.

My cam link is also an integral part of my site in that many of you found me on LIVE cams before you even knew I had a website. This was true in the early days (Outlaw, Bubba, Nicster to name a few) and this is still true today. I have been amazed at how many cam viewers end up finding my site and joining – it’s over 65%, and for that I am thankful for. It’s humbling to know that I have made an impression while we were LIVE and you chose to join my website when there are so many to choose from.

Thank you,

Angel

Nuts!

Amber, thank you for your recent gift. It’s one that I read half of the book the first night I received it and have not had time to pick it up since. lol.

Nuts!: A 101st Airborne Division Machine Gunner at Bastogne was a suggestion from another long time member who reads quite a bit on WWII.

It’s an easy read, which is sometimes not the case when a soldier pens his own book, but I prefer first hand accounts rather than an interpretation of research. That is not to say that I do not also appreciate a documentary account of such events, but I find it closer to the heart of what actually happened and what a soldier endured, all for the freedoms that we have today.

April of Chaos

April is going to be one of scheduled offline commitments which will affect my online time. It is not as much chaos, as it is family responsibilities.

I will remind you guys plenty, but here is a look at what April is going to look like for us online.

The Week of the 29th (upcoming week): Offline Monday and Tuesday, online Wednesday-Saturday. I will still be on VNALive Monday night.

The Week of the 5th: Offline Wednesday-Sunday.

The Week of the 12th: Normal schedule

The Week of the 19th: Online during school hours only. 12noon EST – 730p EST. I will not be online during the evenings, which means there will be no member shows this week.

The Week of the 26th: Normal schedule, except for the 26th. It is our 1 year anniversary and, although I have no idea what we will do, I will not be online in the evening..

So, there you have it- my April will be one of temporary change. I will remind you all weekly, as to what the week will entail and probably Tweet throughout.. you know, to remind you of your time off that I am generously giving you. LOL.

A Positive. . .

Another week is gone, and the weekend is ahead, and no matter how good Monday-Friday was, it’s always a welcome relief when it’s over. I think we’re programmed into living our days by that of the week’s, or at least, I am. I keep thinking that we spend our time wishing it away for the next days off, or the next planned event, but we really should slow down and appreciate each day for what it is.

This week has been great. We spent Sunday-Wednesday in Salt Lake City filming new content and taking care of appointments that MtnMan had with the Huntsman Institute. While we were there, I also was able to buy a couple pairs of new glasses, which is always nice, I guess. I mean, I hate change and if you know me at all, you know that I don’t like it. I’m not sure why that is, but I’ve always been like that and I plan to always be one of no change. At any rate, it is time for new frames, so I already had a list of 6 pairs I wanted to try on, and it didn’t take long to narrow it down to the two pairs that I wanted. I was in and out in 30 minutes! Now that is my kind of shopping.

Once back home, we picked up Abby, visited with the SIL and was unpacked by 630 and on the couch reading a new book until bedtime. That was a great way to end our time away, and to prepare to return to our routine on Thursday. It doesn’t matter how much time you take off, it’s still hard to get back into the schedule. Why is that?

Now that I’ve shared my week with you, what is one positive from your week?

The Bonneville Lake

As we were driving over the salt flats on our way to SLC, I was curious and googled the history of the flats. I have to say, it’s quite interesting what mother nature can do over hundreds of years and centuries of time.

I remember a blurp in school about the salt flats, but it was just that, a day or maybe even half an hour of discussing the great phenomenon known as the Salt Flats.

You probably already know this, but I’m extremely fascinated by it and now I will share it with you, because that’s what I do.

The Salt Flats used to be Lake Bonneville that engulfed much of the Great Basin, and it was expansive. The lake dried up and shrank below its outlet, turning the water to salt and evaporating what water was left. Interesting! Even more interesting than that is that this occurred over 30,000 years ago. WHAT?

Now that I know this, I predict that the same is happening to the Great Salt Lake. MtnMan’s parents used to go boating and grew up swimming in the lake, but over the years it became too salty and the buoyancy made it too hard to swim in and I’m guessing the salt was too harsh on the boats. Today you won’t find even a sailboat on the water, nor sunbathers on the shore; the water line is slowly receding and will one day become another Salt Flat, just as Lake Bonneville did 30,000 years ago.

Wow, this fascinates me.

A Friendly Reminder

We are in Salt Lake City through Wednesday, which means that I will not be on cam until Thursday. However, I will be doing the weekly member show on the VNALive network tonight at 11p EST.

If you are a member of lonestarangel.com, you have FREE access.

How Was Your Weekend?

I normally ask this while on cam, but since I won’t be online until Thursday, I will ask you here.

How was your weekend?

Long Overdue

There was a time when I was exceptionally good at blogging, and giving thanks to those that are thoughtful to send gifts. I am embarrassed to say that I have months worth of thanks to give and I’m just now making this post.

Nicster- you have always been generous with gifts, and nothing has changed even after years of knowing each other. Thank you. I hope to wear the red garter lingerie in a video soon. The Turquoise tank top was a hard one to acquire and I’m still not sure what happened to the original one, but the 2nd one took a long detour around the world before arriving 3 months later… which makes me chuckle each time I wear it.

Stephen- I absolutely love the snow boots and wore them just the other day. I’m sure I was a little over dressed for the locals, but 40 degrees and windy is still very cold to this Texan. lol. I appreciate your kindness and, again, your thoughtfulness.

Bubba- I know this is extremely overdue, but I have felt like an asshole for not posting a thank you for the elephant skirt. I wear it around the house for now, but once the sun comes out and it warms up to 70ish, I’ll be wearing it out and about. I love it!

BigReg- I love, love, love the panties (all of them) and the blue dress is one of my favorites. Of course, it’s still 30-40 degrees here, even when the sun is high in the sky, so I’ll be waiting to wear it out of the house for when it warms up. lol. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. I appreciate you!

Mark (AM)- the lingerie is beautiful and well made which means I will be wearing it on cam for many years to come and the skirt is sexy and I will be making new content in that soon. Thank you so much for being generous and perusing my wishlist; you are thoughtful!

Mike- thank you, thank you, thank you! I love every pair of the socks that you sent in the 26 bundle of nothing but socks! OMG. I’ve got socks and more socks! There is not one pair in that set that I do not LOVE. I had a difficult time choosing which pair to wear first, and after about 20 minutes of hem-hawing, I went with the argyles, which are my favorite pattern after elephants. Thank you! That was an amazing surprise that even got Abby excited upon my opening the package. You are incredibly thoughtful!
