Lover boys, getting close; overcast skies on the island ….

lover boys #9Hi, friends and readers:

Do you like the photos I have posted here this morning as much as I do? It’s so nice seeing two young men showing physical affection to each other and not feeling ashamed about it. When I was in high school and college male/male relationships were taboo; if you were gay you hid that fact from everyone except your closest friends and family members, but now that isn’t necessary for most of us, and I think it’s great.

We had a really nice evening last night, consumed mostly by watching by NFL playoff games. My boyfriend is a rabid Packers fan and Green Bay beat the Dallas Cowboys to advance to the NFC championship game. I grilled cheeseburgers that came out perfect. We dined on those, along with baked beans and cole slaw. Delicious! 🙂

lover boys #15Now it’s Monday morning and outside the sky is overcast, but at least the temperature is not cold. My boyfriend will be leaving for Tallahassee in a couple of hours, and then I’ll be on my own for the rest of the day. 🙁

It’s okay, right after lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. I always enjoy my visits there, not just for the exercise, but also for the companionship of my friends there. And I always feel refreshed when I leave there freshly showered and relaxed.

I don’t have much planned for the rest of my day. I’ll do some routine household chores, just small ones, and I’ll spend a little time on my observation deck, watching sailboats cruise by the house. I’ll make myself a dinner of leftovers, and then maybe I’l watch a Netflix movie. I know that doesn’t sound too exciting, but it’s fine with me. Have a nice Monday, everyone.


Naked and asleep. Football in store for Martin ….

asleep #8Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this website then you know how much I like photos of guys who are sleeping, especially when they aren’t wearing anything like the two in this morning’s photo posts. How would you like to walk into your living room one morning to find Mr. Buns in the upper photo snoozing on your  sofa. Would you wake him up would you rather crawl into his sleeping bag with him for a little snuggle? I’d say the latter. 😉

asleep #2And I wonder who took the photo to the left here? It’s clearly not a selfie; the subject is asleep. Was it his boyfriend, perhaps?

I woke up around six AM this morning, and right away I knew I wold not be going back to sleep, so I dragged my butt out of bed. I made a pot of coffee and ha a little breakfast, and then I got busy on my novel-in-progress, a 60,000-word book that still needs a lot of massaging before it reads the way I want it to.

Outside it’s another sunny day, with the high temperature set to peak at eighty degrees F, my kind of winter weather. Today there are two NFL playoff games, and since my boyfriend’s in town we’ll be watching both. I’ve already purchased food for our dinner; I’m cooking cheeseburgers on the charcoal grill. Yummy …

Have a nice Sunday, everyone.

Sexy Asian men; another pretty day on the island ….

asian boy #5Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve always had a thing for Asian men; I don’t  know why. They have such nice skin and hair, and they are unfailingly polite. I used to travel to San Francisco on a regular basis, and whenever I did I would visit a bar on Polk Street where Asian guys went to meet up with Anglo guys. I had a good deal of luck there, but I don’t know if the bar exists today. (I sure hope so. ) 😉

I spent a great evening yesterday, celebrating my friends’ birthdays. We had a couple of beers at a craft brewery, and then we dined on Thai cuisine at a really cool restaurant that was packed with people. Lots of fun ….

asian boy #7It’s a beautiful day, here on the island. The sun is shining, the air is still, and the temperature’s around 72 degrees F. In a few minutes I will take a three-mile walk on the beach for exercise. Then I’ll hit the supermarket to stock the fridge in anticipation of my boyfriend’s arrival. He’s spend two nights with me before he goes back to his internship in Tallahassee, so I want him to enjoy his stay.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will wish all of you a very wonderful Saturday. I hope the sun is shining where you are, and that you’re enjoying your weekend.

Guys with amazing butts; I’m up early and ready to go ….

butt #8Hi, friends and readers:

I freely admit I’m an “ass man”, a guy who likes nothing more than a young man with a firm and rounded butt like the two in this morning’s photo posts. I mean, if the guy to the left here were your boyfriend, how could you resist grabbing those cheeks multiple times per day? Yummy ….

It’s 6:30 AM here, and I’ve already been up for 45 minutes. I don’t know why I woke up so early, but I wasn’t at all sleepy when I did, so here I am at the keyboard, tapping away.

butt #2I had a nice time with my friend in the city last night. We drank a few beers, and then dined on takeout from a Greek place around the corner, which was real tasty. (And speaking of tasty, how’d you like to run your tongue over Mr. Bubble Butt’s cheeks to the left here?) Aye-yi-yi.

I have a busy day ahead. I need to review more edits on my new novel that my editor sent me. I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach, just before lunch. After lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. After the “Y” I’ll run a few errands, and then it’s back to the island to take care of household chores.

Tonight I am taking two good friends out for dinner in the city, to celebrate their birthdays. These guys are considerably younger than me; I have know them since they were in high school, and we have remained close friends ever since. They are straight, but they accept me for who I am, an we always have a good time together.

Have a great Friday, everyone.

Cute boys in the car; amazing day on the island ….

in the car #4Hi, friends and readers:

Oh, how boys love cars. To a guy in his mid-teens, a car and a driver’s license means freedom. No parents around to nag you, just you and your buds cruising the streets and feeling very much the adults. I’d ride with either of the guys whose photos appear in this post. Wouldn’t you?

It is a dazzling day, here on the island: sunny and still, with a temperature hovering around 75 degrees F. I had work to do first thing this morning, but around eleven AM I slipped into my swim trucks, and then I walked three miles on the beach. People were sunning themselves on the shore, including a couple of very hot guys I would not have minded spending time with. (Alas, no time …) 🙁

in the car #6I spent the earlier part of my morning working on edits I just received from my editor for the latest novel I have sold. He’s very good at what he does; I like working with him, and I’ll be working with him again on a second novel his house will publish.

I spent about two hours painting rusty nail heads with rust-sealant paint today. I am repainting the trellises on the front of our house over the next couple of weeks. It’ll be a ladder work, which means very slow-going, and very painstaking labor, but the job needs done. The trellises have not been painted in twelve years and they look a little ragged. This is the time of year to do such work, while the weather is cool And I really don’t mind, as long as I don’t have to sweat while I’m working.

I’m having dinner in the city tonight with one of my oldest friends; we went to grade school together and roomed together in college and again when I was in law school. It’ll be fun.

Have a nice Thursday, friends.

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

black-and-white-beauty-8Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site then you know I adore good-quality black-and-white photography, especially when the subject of the photo is a handsome young man like the guys in today’s photo posts. I mean, check out Mr. Drawstring Shorts to the left here. If he were my boyfriend he would never wear a shirt, except maybe to a restaurant. Aye-yi-yi, what a babe.

I had one of those crazy nights last night when I fell asleep at ten PM and woke up at 2:30 AM, ad I mean wide awake. Nothing I could do but get out of bed and work on edits on my novel-in-progress. I finally got back to sleep around 5:30 AM, and then I slept until around ten AM. I hate that sort of thing, but I know my body well enough that I don’t try to fight what it wants to do. I had a nice breakfast about an hour ago, and I read the newspaper, and now lunch time is fast approaching. Hey, at least I didn’t have to go to work this morning. 🙂

black-and-white-beauty-11Okay, this second photo to the left has a very sensual feel to it, doesn’t it? I doubt the boy in the photo even knew it was taken, which makes it all the more interesting. He’s exactly the kind of guy I craved when I was in my late teens and early twenties: athletic build, shaggy hair, and kissable lips. Yummy ….

It’s a beautiful morning, here on the island. The sun is shining, the air is still, and the temperature is in the mid-seventies F. After lunch I will drive into the city for a workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA, and then I’ll visit Home Depot to purchase a few items I’ll need for a painting project I will begin tomorrow, here at the house.

I don’t have any plans for my evening, other than watching sunset from my observation deck. This evening should be beautiful, and I want to savor the perfect weather. I’ll take a couple of beers and my Bluetooth cube up there with me, and then I will watch sailboats cruise past the house. Ah-h-h, Florida in January.

Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.

Sexy Jean-Baptiste Maunier, then and now ….

jean-baptiste-maunierHi, friends and readers:

You know how sometimes you encounter a boy in his mid-teens and you tell yourself, “I’d like to see him again in about three years.”

The boy in the top photo is French actor Jean-Baptiste Maunier, as he appeared in the 2004 film, Les Choristes. In the film, Jean’s character is an anti-social boy who can’t get close to anyone until a new teacher comes to his orphanage and the teacher starts a boy choir. Jean’s character falls in love with singing, and is able to form a friendship with the teacher. It’s a sweet movie, one worth seeing.

Now, fast forward thirteen years and have a look at Jean-Baptiste now. That’s him to the left, and all I can say is, aye-yi-yi …. What a babe. 😉

I woke up at 6:30 this morning. I lay in bed for abit, hoping to get back to sleep, but at seven AM I gave up and started my day. I made a quick breakfast, and then I got busy dealing with correspondence that piled up while I was in Tallahassee for three days. Then I worked on edits on my novel-in-progress.

Now the time is approaching eleven AM. Outside the sun is shining and the day is warming up. At eleven AM I plan to take a three-mile walk, and then after lunch I’ll g get a haircut and run a few errands. Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.

Sexy, shirtless basketball players; I’m back on the island ….

basketball-6Hi, friends and readers:

There’s a set of basketball courts about ten blocks form my house, here on the island. The court’s attract lots of young men who play in pickup games. Most of the guys play shirtless, which makes for some interesting sights, and sometimes I’ll pedal my bike down there to watch for a while. I’m sure the guys have no idea why I’m observing their game, While they are dribbling I am drooling while I watch all that smooth and sweaty flesh travel about the courts. Yummy … 🙂

Well, if you are wondering why I did not post for a few days, it’s because I traveled to Tallahassee to help my boyfriend move into his apartment up there. He’s doing a four-month internship, and we needed to get all his belongings situated and his kitchen stocked. It all went well, but it was cold in Tallahassee this past weekend, like down in the 20’s. 🙁

basketball-5I actually attended law school in Tallahassee; I lived up there for three years and I loved it. It’s such a beautiful town with all its towering live oaks that are festooned with Spanish moss that waves in the breeze. We visited the FSU campus where I attended school, and then the house I lived in while a student there. It still looks as rundown as it did back then.

Now I am home, on my little island, where the low temperature tonight will be around 52 degrees F, much more civilized. I’m sharing a bottle of red wine with my friend and neighbor, and then I’ll make myself a simple dinner before settling on the sofa to watch a movie.

Have a ice Monday night, friends.

Boys with sexy lips; another beautiful day on the island ….

lipsHi, friends and readers:

Every once in a while I’ll encounter a young man who owns a pair of amazing lips, the kind the beg to be kissed and then put into action in other areas. I mean, look at the two guys in today’s photo posts. Pretty amazing, eh? I don’t know which guy I like better …. 😉

It’s another gorgeous day, here on the island: sunny, dry and still, with a temperature of around 72 degrees. I chose to sleep in this morning, so I didn’t take my usual beach walk, but I’ll take a two-mile run, here on the island, sometime this afternoon.

I’ve got a busy day ahead of me. A publisher just contracted a novel I wrote last summer, so I spent a good part of this morning looking over the contract, and then signing it and returning it. I did some edits on my novel-in-progress, and now it’s 11:30 AM, almost time for lunch.

lips-4My boyfriend is doing an internship in Tallahassee, starting Monday. He’ll be living up there for four months, and tomorrow we will both drive our respective cars northward, to get him moved into his apartment. It’ll be a huge change for both of us, living apart and living alone, but the internship is a tremendous opportunity for him, so we’ll get though it.

I lived in Tallahassee for three years when I was in law school, and I loved it up there. Of course, it has changed a great deal since I lived there, but I’m looking forward to spending the weekend there, before driving back to central Florida. On my way home Sunday I plan to stop by the marina where we keep our boat that we use at our fishing camp. I’ll take the boat out for a ride for an hour or so, and then I’ll head home to watch an NFL playoff game.

All right, everyone, I need to pack for our trip, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very pleasant Thursday. And if your boyfriend has luscious lips, be sure to give him a kiss. He’ll love you for it. 🙂

Beautiful men, fast asleep; nice morning on the island ….

asleep-6Hi, friends and readers:

There is something incredibly sensual about walking into a room where a handsome young man is fast asleep, either in a bed or on a sofa. When he’s asleep, a young man lets  down his normal masculine defenses, and he looks so…vulnerable. I could watch Mr. Sweet Buns to the left here snooze for hours. Just beautiful ….

I was up at 7:30 this morning, and off to the beach for my usual three-mile walk. No sooner did I get my walk underway than a dark cloud rolled over the island and the wind picked up. I hadn’t brought a hoodie with me and I was afraid I’d get soaked and cold, but then the cloud passed me by and the sun came back out. I had a wonderful walk. I love watching seabirds as I stride along the shore: pelicans, sea gulls, terns, and herons. And sometimes I’ll see a dolphin cruising off shore, looking for its breakfast. Ah, island living.

asleep-3It’s almost 11:30 AM now, and I have finished editing my novel-in-progress for the day. The edits are coming along nicely, but my book’s ending is still in doubt. I’ll just have to keep massaging the pages until I get it right.

My boyfriend’s home today, and right after lunch we will cruise into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. I have not been to the “Y” since I left for Wisconsin, nearly two weeks ago, and it’ll feel good to get back into my exercise groove. I’m not sure what’s in store for our evening, but I’m fine with staying home and maybe watching a Netflix movie.

Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.
