Shirtless and hot; quiet Saturday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Have a look at the guy to the left here. Now, if he were your boyfriend would you ever let him wear a shirt around the house? Ofย courseย you wouldn’t, he’s just too gorgeous walking around with no shirt and his shorts unbuttoned. It’s almost like he’s begging to be manhandled. Aye-yi-yi, I wonder what his name is and where he lives? I’m guessing he’s…Robert from Winnipeg, Canada. He’s never been laid but he thinks about it all the time. Who will be his first?

I was up in the wee hours this morning, wide awake and restless. So I made myself a drink and I did some editing on my novel-in-progress. Around four AM I went back to bed and then I slept until ten AM.

Now it’s about 1:30 PM on Saturday and I have not done much productive. I read the newspaper and did the L.A. Times crossword puzzle, and that’s about it. Hey, it’s Saturday, so laziness is okay.

All right, now have a look at Mr. Auburn Hair to the left here. He was born to live shirtless, in my opinion. Definitely boyfriend material, no doubt about it.

So, what in store for the rest of my day? Not a whole lot. I have some housework to do and I will take a two-mile run around four PM. My Florida Gators will play football against Kentucky at 7:30 tonight and I will certainly be watching. Beyond that I don’t have much planned and that’s okay.

Oh, someone asked me what my novel-in-progress is all about, and I tried to explain that it’s complicated. My main character is a college freshman in the 1969-70 school year. He and his roommate fall in love but there are multiple complications, including mental illness, disparity in family wealth, and a separate love interest who keeps interrupting things. Does that make any sense?

Have a nice Saturday, everyone.

Hot guys in backward ball caps; quiet night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s something about a young guy wearing his ball cap backward that gets my juices flowing, and I’m not sure why, but I sure like the way both guys in tonight’s photo posts look in their caps.

The lad to the left here doesn’t look all that happy, does he? Did he just have an argument with his boyfriend? Or is he a hustler sizing up a john on the street?

I had an easy day, actually. I slept in late after staying upย wayย too late last night. I decided to skip my normal Friday workout at the YMCA, so I took a three-mile walk on the beach for some exercise.

Check out Mr. Sunglasses to the left here. Does he have an amazing body or not? I could follow him around all day …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had plans for this evening, but those just changed and now I’m at loose ends, but that’s okay. I have some editing work to do and a Netflix movie to watch. I’ll make some stir-fried chicken over pasta for my dinner and maybe tonight I’ll get to bed at a reasonable hour.

Oh, someone just asked me how my love life is going since my breakup with my ex-partner six months ago. Well, I’ve had some interesting dates in recent months, but I have not found anyone I would consider forming a relationship with, so my love life, you could say, is a work-in-progress. It’s okay because I’m not ready to rush into another LTR. I’ll take my time and be patient.

All right, everyone, I need to get on with my evening, so I will wish all of you a wonderful Friday night, wherever you might be. Keep smiling. ๐Ÿ™‚

A boyfriend in your bed. What could be better?

Hi, friends and readers:

I have always believed that we aren’t meant to live alone. Each of us deserves a companion we can share life with, and one of the joys of having a partner is waking up next to him in your bed each morning. If you’re lucky you’ll enjoy a little snuggle time before starting the rest of your day, or maybe even something more than snuggling. You know, morning sex can be very special. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What do you think of Mr. Black Undies to the left here? Would you like t wake up next to him tomorrow morning? Ofย course you would. ๐Ÿ™‚

My sleep clock went all out of whack last night and this morning. I stayed up way too late last night–I couldn’t go to sleep–and then I slept in way too late this morning, so my whole day’s going to get screwed up. Plus my right shoulder is sore for some reason, and I’m not sure I should go to the gym today. Maybe I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach for exercise instead.

Have a nice Friday, everyone.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; easy Thursday ahead for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this website then you know I adore good black-and-white photography, and at least once a week I like to post two of my favorites. The photo to the left has a special meaning to me because the young man in the photo looks exactly like one of my college fraternity brothers who I developed a deep crush on my second year at the university. His name was Jerry and I saw him every day because we both lived in the fraternity house. Jerry had cola-colored eyes, a dazzling smile, and a tall, athletic body. He was also very quiet and shy and no, I never had sex with him. ๐Ÿ™

I wonder where Jerry is today?

This second photo reminds me very much of a young man I met in Berlin, Germany one summer when I lived there for three months. He lived with me for two very enjoyable weeks. What a beautiful guy …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had a great time dining on barbecue and then attending the Rays v. Cubs game. The Rays won the game 8-2, and I got to spend ย eight innings gazing at Kris Bryant’s rear end. What a hot guy ….

Because I got up so early yesterday, I ended up sleeping this morning until ten AM, so I got a late start on the day. But that’s okay. I don’t have much on my plate today, other than some minor housework and maybe a trip to the shopping mall to buy a new pair of dress pants. I detest clothes shopping but I need a new pair of pants and I know just what I want so it should not take too long. Around four PM I’ll take a two-mile run, here on the island, and then around 5:30 PM I’ll drive into the city to share my evening with a good friend.

Have a nice Thursday, everyone.

Sexy Kris Bryant; easy Wednesday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m not a sports fanatic nor do I worship professional athletes of any kind, but Iย canย appreciate a good-looking guy in a baseball uniform, and the guy you see in the photos I’ve posted here this morning certainly falls into that category. He’s Kris Bryant of the Chicago Cubs and tonight I’ll get to see him in person, as a good friend is taking me to the Tampa Bay Rays game against the Cubs. I doubt I’ll get close enough for an autograph but that’s okay. Isn’t Kris yummy? Sadly, it seems he’s married to aย woman.ย (Oh, no!) ๐Ÿ™

I spent the night at a friend’s last night. We had a pleasant evening and a good meal prepared byย moi.ย I drove home early this morning and right after I fixed breakfast I got busy writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress. I put in two hours or so at the keyboard, and now it’s around eleven AM.

I have a easy day in store for me. When I finish this post I’ll do the L.A.Times crossword puzzle, and then I’ll have lunch. Since today is Wednesday, after lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. Then I’ll cruise back to my island home.

Before we go to the ball game tonight I’ll treat my friend to some tasty barbecue at a place in town that can’t be beat. Then we’ll head for the game to I can ogle Mr. Bryant. ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have a nice Wednesday, friends, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hot guys in boardshorts; busy day for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

For many years boardshorts were the most popular type of swimwear for guys in the U.S., but now you don’t so so much of them anymore. Guys are going for shorter swim trunks these days, which I think’s an improvement. Boardshorts cover up too much skin, but they can still flatter a guy’s rear end if he has a nice round one, like the two in today’s photo posts.

Just look at the butt on Mr. Backward Ball Cap to the left here. What could be more tempting? Aye-yi-yi …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I rose at seven this morning, and after a quick breakfast I put in two hours writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress. Once if was finished writing for the day, I tackled a very unpleasant project: cleaning the windows on the western side of my house. The hurricane covered the outside of those windows with salt spray and they looked terrible. So I got the job done, which was a sweaty affair. Now the windows look good again.

Now check out Mr. Buns to the left. I could follow him down the sidewalk all day long. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I have much to do this afternoon. Right after I finish my lunch I’ll run errands: wine market, bank, drug store and supermarket. When I return home I’ll get some more housework taken care of and then I’ll take a two-mile run, here on the island.

I’m spending this evening at a friend’s house, where I will prepare dinner for us and maybe we’ll go for a ride on his golf cart, which sounds goofy but is actually a lot of fun. I’m sleeping over, and then I’ll drive home tomorrow morning. I’ve know this friend since we were in grade school and we always have a good time when we get together.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Tuesday, wherever you might be today.

Two more of my readers’ favorite photos; quiet night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

This morning I posted two of my all-time most popular photos I’ve ever put up on this website. The response was very positive, s I thought I’d put up two more this evening.

The young man to the left I call Blue Speedo Boy and what I like most about the photo is the way he’s not at all modest about wearing such a revealing suit.

I had an excellent workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA this afternoon. I even had my own lap lane, which makes things easier. After a warm shower in the locker room I left feeling refreshed and ready for a nice evening.

Due to all the disruptions caused by the hurricane I have not accomplished a great deal in the writing department over the past week. I’m hopeful I’ll be able to start writing on a daily basis for 2-3 hours like I’ve done for many years.

Now, this photo to the left I call the Sweaty Wrestler photo, for obvious reasons. I find the photo incredibly erotic. I love the way sweat glistens on his body and face. I like his tousled hair, smooth skin, sleek muscles and bulging crotch too. Amazing …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I don’t have too much planned for this evening. I’m having my good friend and neighbor over to share a bottle of red wine. I have leftovers from last night for my dinner. All I’ll need to prepare is a salad to go with them. There’s a decent NFL game on at 8:15 PM, and maybe I’ll do a bit of reading in bed before going to sleep. Not too exciting, I know, but that’s okay.

All right, everyone, I hope you enjoyed all four photos I posted here today. And I hope you’ll have a nice Monday night, wherever you are right now. Keep smiling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Two of my most popular photos; getting back to normal in Florida …..

Hi, friends and readers:

Over the years I’ve posted thousands of photos on this website, and I’ve received thousands of comments about them. People often ask me which were the most popular photos with my readers, and I can say without equivocation that the two I’m posting here this morning are among my readers’ favorites.

The photo to the left, a reader informed me, was taken on a bridge in Seattle. If you zoom in on the young man’s Speedo you’ll see the Stanford University logo, so I’m guessing he was a freshman at Stanford at the time, and a mighty cute one at that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, I had a wonderful time yesterday, attending a live musical play with one of my closest friends. The show was excellent and afterward we drank a few beers on my friend’s elevated deck before dining on takeout from a Greek restaurant.

Now, have a look at the young man to the left. Did he not look in the mirror before he left the house that morning? Aye-yi-yi ….. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I slept in late this morning, despite the fact I went to be around eleven last night. I guess I was tired because I didn’t get out of bed this morning until around nine. I fixed a simple breakfast and brewed coffee, and now I’m here at the keyboard, getting my day started. After last week’s hurricane and its aftermath, things have been quite chaotic and it’s been hard getting back into my usual routines. My exercise regimen was entirely disrupted and my sleeping schedule’s out of rhythm. (Am I sounding whiny?)

Anyway, right after lunch today I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and a lap-swimming session, my first visit there in about ten days. It’s going to feel good, getting back to my usual routines, now that I have my property back in order and my refrigerator re-stocked.

Have a nice Monday, friends, wherever you might be today.

Sundays are for lover boys; nice Sunday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you have a lover boy in your life then Sunday is probably your favorite day of the week. The two of you get to sleep in as late as you want to, and maybe spend some time cuddling under the sheets before getting up. You fix a nice little breakfast and maybe read the newspaper. No one disturbs you. It’s just you and him, enjoying each other’s presence. Ah-h-h, young love …. ๐Ÿ™‚

I spent yesterday afternoon watching football. My Florida Gators beat Tennessee but it wasn’t a pretty game. After an early dinner I hosted someone at my place for a couple of hours. The date was…so-so. ๐Ÿ™ Then I watched another football game on TV (USC v. Texas) before I went to bed. I slept like a rock and didn’t get up until 9:30 this morning.

I just finished reading the entire Sunday newspaper, which was full of interesting stories about Hurricane Irma and how my fellow Floridians dealt with the many problems caused by the storm. I feel very lucky that my home was not damaged at all. I only had to clean up my yard and patios form debris, not bad really.

I’m looking forward to the rest of my day. A friend and I are attending a live musical play at one of my favorite venues. Afterward, we’ll drink a few beers at my friend’s house and then we’ll get some takeout for our evening meal.

I don’t have any plans for the later part of my evening, and that’s okay. Maybe I’ll spend a little time on my front porch swing, enjoying the quiet. Have a nice Sunday, everyone.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; easy Saturday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this website then you know I’m a huge fan of quality black-and-white photography, and at least once a week I like to share two of my favorite b&w photos with all of you.

The photo to the left takes me back to my college days when guys wore cutoff blue jeans as swimsuits. It was a sexy look back then, and it certainly flatters the young man in the photo, doesn’t it? Okay, he’s skinny, but he has broad shoulders and lovely hair and skin. Yummy ….

I had a great evening at my friend’s house in town. Then I drove home and spent time on my front porch swing, just enjoying the beautiful evening and the ceiling fan’s cooling effects. I didn’t get to bed until around midnight, so I ended up sleeping until 9:30 this morning.

Check out the photo to the left. Okay, it’s a tad blurry but I think the photographer intended that. The model is beautiful, with lovely skin and hair, and he’s very lean. Definitely boyfriend material.

I have an easy day in store for me. This morning I’ll finish cleanup from the hurricane. Now that I have electrical power I can use my leaf-blower to clear my patios of debris. I need to clean windows too. A run to the supermarket is needed to replace food items that spoiled during the storm. I’ll take a two-mile run at some point, and then at 3:30 PM I’ll watch the Florida Gators play a home game against Tennessee. I’m not sure what I’ll do with my evening, but that’s okay. Sometimes uncertainty is good.

Have a nice Saturday, friends, and keep smiling. It’s important, ๐Ÿ™‚
