Shirtless and sexy; nice night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

As I’ve said many times, certain guys should not wear shirts, except when attending church or dining in a restaurant. Why cover up all the smooth and rippling flesh. I remember in my younger days (pre-Internet) when gay bars were jam-packed on the weekends, and dancing shirtless was quite acceptable any time of day or night. The sights were nothing less than amazing.

I mean, how would you like to dance with Mr. Blue Eyes to the left here when he’s shirtless and wearing a nice pair of skinny jeans. He’ll, I’d dance with him until dawn if he’d let me. What a babe …. 😉

It’s been a good day so far. I spent 2-1/2 hours editing my novel-in-progress, which is almost complete. At 56,000 words it’s not as long as some of my other books, bu I really like it. Around eleven AM I took a three-mile walk, and then I drove into the city for a workout and lap-swimming at the YMCA.

Now I’m home and it’s beautiful, here on the island: sunny, cool, with only a minimal breeze. In just a few minutes I will open up a cold beer, and then I’ll do a little more editing before heading into the city another time.

Old friends from Philadelphia who winter here every year have invited me to have dinner with them at their home, which is right down the street from where I used to live back in the 1980’s and 1990’s. They have a beautiful home and a nice garden, and they are great cooks too. I always have a wonderful time when we get together because we never stop laughing.

Since my boyfriend’s up in Tallahassee right now, it’s nice to spend time with friends rather than spending time alone at my house. After the dinner party I will head back to the island and most likely crawl into bed with a Michael Chabon book I am reading.

Have a nice Friday night, friends.


Beautiful guys in black-and-white; rainy morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers: At least one a week I like to post some of my favorite black-and-white photos, and I decided today would be a good time to post another two for your viewing pleasure.

Have a look at Mr. Curly Hair to the left here. When I was in law school my boyfriend at the time had hair exactly like that, and I remember how much I enjoyed running my fingers through his hair when we kissed or did other, more intense things. Ah, memories …. 😉

I woke this morning to the sound of rain falling. By now the rain has stopped but the sky is overcast and I think it may start raining again soon. It’s okay, we’ve had an extremely dry fall and winter and we need the moisture. I know the shrubs in my yard are loving it.

Do you find this second photo as interesting as I do? I’m guessing it was taken in a locker room. Notice how the boy is focused on the basketball in his hands? Maybe he’s re-living the game he just played in, and how he might have played better. I love the way the light coming in the window plays on his skin and hair. Really nice work ….

It’s almost eleven AM right now, and I am done writing for the morning. Ordinarily I would take a three-mile walk before lunch, but I’m afraid I might get drenched if I do, so I guess I’ll take care of some correspondence instead. After lunch I’ll have to drive into the city for a follow-up appointment with my eye doctor. Then I’ll have errands to run.

Tonight I’ll return to the city to have a few beers and share a meal with an old friend who is sort of housebound these days, due to mental illness issues he’s dealing with. Look, you do thing for your friends when they’re down, right?

Have a nice Thursday, friends.


Photos of Berlin landmarks; pretty evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Berlin, Germany is one of my favorite cities in the world. For several years I used to spend entire summers there. I’d rent a flat in an interesting neighborhood, join a gym, and spend many afternoons exploring various areas of the city.

The photo to the left was taken in the Olympic Park in the western suburbs of the city. The park was built by the Nazis for the 1936 Olympics, and the statutes are intended to depict the racial superiority of German “aryans”. As you can see, the statutes are massive, and they are quite impressive when you see them in person, as is the stadium itself.

(Oh, the butt on the naked guy standing before the statues is pretty impressive too. So rounded, smooth and beefy. Yummy ….)

This second photo was taken in the city’s center at the Brandenburg Gate. The statute atop the gate is called the Quadrigia. When Napoleon defeated Prussia in the early 1800’s he stole the Quadrigia from Berlin and took it to Paris. Then, when the Prussians defeated France in a war ending in 1873, the Prussian army returned the Quadrigia to its rightful place, where it remains today. Again, it’s a very impressive work of art, especially when you see it lit up at night. If you ever get the chance to, visit Berlin. There’s a huge gay scene there, and the public transportation is superb.

I’m just home form the YMCA and the supermarket. It’s beautiful here tonight, and I plan to spend a quiet night at home, savoring the lovely weather. Have a nice Wednesday night, friends.

Sexy guys in Speedos; pretty night on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

You can’t beat the way a Speedo-style swimsuit looks on a handsome young man. It provides minimal coverage, just enough to keep things interesting. And I think it’s a shame young men in the US don’t wear them to pools and to the beach. Guys in Europe do, but then they aren’t so modest about their bodies.

What do you suppose is going on with Mr. Lime Green Speedo to the left here. It almost looks like he’s about to lose that suit, but for what reason? We can only speculate, but I like his all-over suntan and his bright blue eyes. Yummy …. 😉

Well, again I am posting late today. I was just to busy until now (It’s six PM.) to put together a post. I wrote from nine AM to 11:30 AM. Then I took a three-mile walk before enjoying my lunch.

After lunch I ran all kinds of errands: wine market, bank, bed-and-bath store for a new shower curtain, and the barber shop. Once my haircut was finished I visited a shopping mall. I absolutely detest malls, but I’ve been wanting to replace a sweater I left in California last year, and today was the day to find one. After an hour I finally found what I wanted: right size, style and color. So the mall visit was worth it.

After I got home I ran two miles, here on the island. The weather was perfect for running: 75 degrees F, sunny, and just a little breezy. I finished without even feeling tired, and now, after a warm shower, I am ready for a nice evening at home.

Have a great Tuesday night, friends.

Hot boys and their cameras; beautiful evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I know a lot of selfies can be pretty lame, but once in a while I will come across a few I think are worthy of sharing with all of you, and the two I’m posting here this evening I find pretty interesting, that is if you like cute boys who aren’t wearing much. 😉

Okay, I didn’t post this morning because I got too busy working on a writing project and didn’t have the time to post before I left for a workout at the YMCA. So now it’s five PM and I am just putting this up. Better late than never, right?

Check out Mr. Boxer Briefs to the left here. He’s sporting a very nice bulge in the pouch of those briefs, now isn’t he? I wonder if he has a boyfriend?

I had a decent workout at the YMCA, and then I ran errands: marine canvas place to fix something for my boat, clothing store for some new gym and running gear, and then the supermarket. By the time I got home it was past four-thirty and I was ready to relax at home with a cold beer.

It’s a beautiful evening, here on the island: sunny, about 77 degrees F, and only a light breeze. In just a little while I think I will ascend to my observation deck, to drink another beer and watch the sailboats cruise by my house in the Intracoastal Waterway. It’s a nice way to spend a little time enjoying the beauty of this little island I live on. All right, everyone, I hope you had a good Monday, and best wishes for a lovely evening, wherever you are tonight.

Beautiful and slender; quiet morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I know a lot of you out there like guys with lots of muscles, and that’s okay, but that’s not my thing. I can appreciate a little beef, but I prefer slender guys like the ones in today’s photo post. I especially like the guy in the upper photo here. He’s so lean and handsome, and the way he’s posed inside an auto suggests to me he might be a rent boy. I’d sure be willing to pay for an hour with him. 😉

I slept until nine AM today, and right now my boyfriend is still asleep, after attending is school’s formal ball last night. We have all our windows and doors open and it’s a beautiful, quiet Sunday morning, here on the island. Great weather for sleeping or just relaxing with the Sunday newspaper.

I don’t have a lot planned for today. Since my boyfriend has to drive back to Tallahassee this afternoon, I’ll wait to run errands until after he departs. In the meantime I have much to do in the writing department, and also some yard work to do. I want to enjoy my morning with my boyfriend, and maybe we’ll take a long walk on the beach after he’s gets up and enjoys his breakfast.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing each of you a very pleasant Sunday. And if you have a slender boyfriend, don’t forget to tell him how sexy you think he is. 🙂

Hot boys in a-shirts; rainy Saturday on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

It takes a special guy to pull of wearing an a-shirt. He has to be slender, with just a bit of muscle in his arms and shoulders. I think the guys in today’s photo posts look great in their a-shirts, don’t you? 😉

My boyfriend got home last night around eight PM, and after we dined on fresh grouper and fruit salad my boyfriend got a blaze going in our patio fire pit. Since the night was chilly, the fire felt just right.

Sadly, I woke up this morning around 3:30 AM, and I mean I was wide awake. So I poured myself a glass of wine and then I worked on my novel-in-progress until I got sleepy again, around five AM. Then I ended up sleeping until around nine AM, which got me off to a slow start. Oh, well, it’s nice having my boyfriend home for the weekend. We just finished lunch, and now he’s off running errands: bank, haircut, plant nursery, etc.

Now, have a look at Mr. Shaggy Hair to the left here. He fills out that black a-shirt perfectly, doesn’t he? Imagine spending an afternoon with him, maybe watching a movie on TV with your arm around his sexy shoulders. Yummy ….

I’m staying home and taking care of correspondence this afternoon. I have work to do in the writing department as well, so I will stay busy. Outside it’s drizzling rain, so the yard work I planned to perform today will have to wait until things dry up, and that’s okay.

My boyfriend is attending a formal dress ball his school is sponsoring tonight. I was invited but chose not to attend. Formal balls are not my thing these days, but he’ll have a good time with his classmates, while I enjoy the comfort of my home.

Have a nice Saturday, everyone, wherever you might be today.

The art of rimming; beautiful afternoon on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

The art of “rimming”, i.e., licking your sex partner’s anus, is a sex practice some gay men find unappealing, but not me. I’ve been an ass-eater ever since I came out in my early twenties. Rimming can be a terrific prelude to anal sex, a sort of warm-up of sorts, and it can drive your partner into nirvana if it’s done right. Also, it’s perfectly healthy, as long as your partner has cleaned himself well beforehand.

Do you think the guy getting his hole rimmed in the upper photo is enjoying himself? 😉

It’s been a good day so far. I got some slid editing done on my novel-in-progress this morning. After lunch I drove into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout, my first since I caught a head cold over two weeks ago. It felt good to put my muscles to work. Afterward I visited Home Depot for several items I needed, and then I hit our island supermarket to stock the fridge for the weekend. My boyfriend should be arriving around eight this evening. I’m making a nice seafood dinner for us, and it’ll be nice to have him home.

Have a great Friday, everyone. And if your boyfriend’s been good this week, maybe he’s due for a little rimming tonight. Yummm …. 😉

The beautiful boy in basketball shorts; pretty morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Every guy reaches a point in his life when he looks the best he ever will. For some guys that’s age eighteen, for other it’s thirty. It all depends on his physical development. Now, I don’t know about you, but I think the boy in today’s photo posts had reached that point when these photos were taken. Everything about him is exquisite: his hair and skin, his pudgy lips and slim physique. Unbelievable …..

I spent the night at a friend’s house, where I cooked dinner and we shared a pleasant evening catching up on each other’s lives. He also took me for a “booze cruise” in his golf cart, which was actually kind of fun. 🙂

A got back home about thirty minutes ago, and it’s absolutely gorgeous outside this morning: sunny, still, and cool, about 70 degrees F. This is why we live in central Florida, you see.

Here’s photo number two of Mr. Gorgeous in his basketball shorts. I don’t like it quite as much as the upper photo, but it’s still pretty amazing.

I am devoting most of my day to finishing a painting project I started a couple of weeks ago. I have three large trellises on my property that Confederate jasmine vines grow on. One of the trellises was destroyed when the house was tented for termites, and two of the vines were chopped down for the tent job. I had the one trellis re-built and I have planted new vines that are doing quite nicely. Today I will finish painting all three trellises,, and then this weekend, when my boyfriend visits, we’ll put the vines back in place.

The weather today if perfect for this type of project, so that’s how I will spend my day. It’s not so bad, really. I’ll enjoy being outdoors, and it’s the type of work that allows me to think about my writing projects I’m working on at present.

Have a nice Thursday, everyone.


Sexy joggers; busy day ahead for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve been a jogger since I was in college, and that was a few years ago. Running is an integral part of my life. It helps control my weight, helps me sleep better, and keeps my brain calm. And it also brings about encounters with other runners like the guys in today’s photo posts. Hey, there’s nothing sexier than a sleek and sweaty young man wearing nothing but a pair of skimpy running shorts or a Speedo. Yummy ….

I’m up relatively early, and in just about twenty minutes I will drive over to Tampa to see an orthopedic surgeon about an issue I have with two fingers in my left hand. I know that sounds weird, but I use my left hand fingers to play my guitar and they are important to me.

I have a ton of correspondence to deal with when I get back home, and I just received my editor’s revisions on another novel I’ll have coming out later this year, so I will keep busy on those.

By the way, a reader once informed me that the photo to the left here was taken on a bridge near Seattle. Sorry I missed that race. 😉

A friend has invited me to have dinner with him and then spend the night at his place about 30 miles south of here, and I think I’ll take him up on his offer. He’s a boyhood friend who I don’t get to see too often, so I’ll pack a few things in my backpack and he’ll pick e up around five PM.

All right, everyone, I need to get ready for my trip to Tampa, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Wednesday.
