Cute guys with long hair; nice Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When I was college and law school I wore my hair long; it grew past my shoulders. I liked the way it looked but it was a pain in the butt to take care of. When I graduated form law school I had it cut shorter for my job interviews, and then I never grew it out again.

Not every guy looks good with long hair, but I think the two in today’s photo posts look great with their shaggy locks. Isn’t the guy to the left her cute? What a great smile. 🙂

I was up at 8:30 this morning, right after the construction crew next door got to work with their compressor and nail guns. I prepared a quick breakfast and then got to work writing fresh material  for my novel-in-progress, which is now almost finished. At 75,000 words it’s a bit longer than most of my books, but that’s okay.

Now have a look at Mr. Wavy Hair and Dark Eyes to the left here. It looks like he was photographed in a locker room, and wouldn’t you like to be present when he gets undressed? Yummy …. 😉

I have a nice day ahead of me. Right after lunch I will drive into the city for a workout at the YMCA. Then I’ll come home and take a two-mile walk for more exercise.

Tonight I’m having a friend over for dinner. I bought a roasting chicken at the supermarket yesterday. I’ll stuff the chicken with veggies and rice and it’ll make a really nice meal. Have a great Friday, everyone. And keep smiling. It’s important.

Boys and lakes; easy Thursday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve never lived on or near a lake. I’m a salt water kind of guy. But it seems when you mix a young man with a lake he often ends up naked or close to it. I wonder why Mr Naked to the left here is scowling at the camera?

I had a great dinner with my friend and at the Italian place last night, but by the time I got home I was so tired I crawled into bed with a book and fell asleep shortly thereafter. The antibiotic I am taking really saps my energy. 🙁

I was up around nine this morning, feeling pretty good. I made a simple breakfast and scanned the newspaper. Then I got busy at the keyboard. Now it’s past 11:30  and I am done writing for the day.

After lunch I have to install a new window blind in my vacation rental next door, a task I’ve performed many times. It’s always a pain in the butt. Still I’ll get the blind put up, something my seasonal renters asked me to do when they left last March.

Tonight I’ll drive into the city to visit my lifelong friend. We’ll drink some beer, swap some stories and get takeout for our dinner. It’s always fun. Have a nice Thursday, friends.

Cute boys from Indiana University; cool and sunny day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

About twenty years ago I visited the Indiana University campus in Bloomington, IN, but I don’t remember the boys there being as cute as the two in today’s photo posts. I guess things have changed for the better at IU. I wonder what a plane flight to Bloomington costs these days? 😉

I stayed up way too late last night, watching the returns in the Alabama senate race. It looks like the Democrat won by a narrow margin, which is nothing short of a miracle. Maybe sanity is returning to the American electorate after their idiot selection of Donald Trump to serve as president. There may be hope for our country yet, despite all of Trump’s bumbling over the past eleven months.

Now, have a look at Mr. Backward Ball Cap to the left here.  Would you like to untie the drawstring on his sweatpants? Of course you would …. 🙂

Outside this morning it’s cool (53 degrees F) and sunny, with only a light breeze. The high today will only reach 60 degrees F.

I don’t have a whole lot on  my plate for today, other than doing some editing on my novel-in-progress this morning. After lunch I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout, then I’ll come home an d take a three-mile walk for additional exercise since the pool at the YMCA is closed right now. I’m having dinner with a friend at a nice Italian restaurant this evening, which I am looking forward to, and then I’ll come home and try to call it an early night. I don’t like sleeping in so late in the morning, and I need to get back to my usual schedule.

Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.

Beautiful Luke Halpin; hectic day for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you weren’t around in the early 1960’s then you’ve probably never heard of the TV actor named Luke Halpin. That’s him to the left. In the new book I’m writing, the narrator is a gay college student who had a crush on Luke Halpin as a young teen. Here’s what he said about Luke:

“I am also queer as a flamingo; I figured that out the first time I viewed a television show called Flipper when I was thirteen. The show starred a bottle-nosed dolphin and a sinewy blond boy named Luke Halpin who frequently appeared shirtless in the show. Mostly he wore only a skimpy pair of cutoff blue jeans.

“Luke had a washboard stomach, shoulders that bulged like softballs and a chest that looked like it was carved from marble. The first time I saw him I grew so excited I thought I might bust through the zipper on my shorts. After that I never missed an episode of Flipper during the three years it aired because—and I’ll freely admit this—I was insanely in love with Luke Halpin. He became my go-to fantasy whenever I lay in my bed at night and touched myself under the sheets.

“Oh, Luke….”

Hey, as a teen in that era, I never missed an episode of Flipper either. I couldn’t wait to fantasize about getting physical with Luke as I watched him run around in those cutoff jeans.

I’m posting late today because I had a rather hectic day. It started with a visit to our local IRS office to correct a major error my CPA made on my 2016 tax return. The error won’t hurt me financially but it needed fixed. Then I traveled to another government office where I waited tow hours before I was seen. After I came home and had my lunch (at 2:30 PM), I hit to road again to visit the wine market, the bank, and then a department store at a mall to return a sweater I bought online that did not fit me right.

Now it’s well past five PM and I am ready for a relaxing evening here at home. I’m having a drink with my neighbor and then I’ll have leftovers for dinner. There’s a Netflix movie I want to stream after dinner, so I’m good.

Have a nice Tuesday evening, friends.

Beautiful blond guys; cool and sunny day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Gay guys have varied tastes when it comes to the type of young man we find attractive. Me, I’m partial to fair-skinned guys with dark hair and eyes. But that’s just me, and I know many of you find blond guys the epitome of male beauty.

Check out Mr. Shirtless to the left here. Imagine sharing that locker room with him every day. I know he’s a little on the slender side, but I kind of like slender. Anyway, he’s definitely boyfriend material in my book. 😉

I slept until 9:30 this morning. After I fixed a quick breakfast I hit the keyboard and wrote fresh material for my novel-in-progress. I’m about to finish the first draft of the book, and I will likely accomplish that by the end of this week.

Now it’s almost lunchtime, and after I dine on something light I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout, my first in a week. My doctor said no going to the gym until the swelling in my left foot subsided, which is pretty much has. I’m sure glad I had the situation treated last week.

Tonight around 5:30 I will drive into the city again to spend time with my old friend. We’ll drink a few beers and then order takeout for our dinner. We normally do this on Thursday but I couldn’t make it last Thursday due to my foot issues, so we’ll do it tonight instead.

Have a nice Monday, everyone.

Hot boys on boats; sunny but chilly on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I live on an island; I’m surrounded by water. And boating is a very popular activity here. One interesting phenomenon is the effect a boat has on young men. As soon as they’re out on the water their clothes come off, or at least most of their clothing.

How would you like to spend an afternoon on the water with Mr. Shaggy Hair to the left here. Hell, I could spend an entire month with him. 😉 I’m guessing he has a 28″ waist.

I slept in very late this morning, for the third day in a row. I know all this sleeping is due to the monster antibiotic I’m taking right now. It saps all the energy out of me, always does.

It’s all okay. I can probably use the rest.

Now, have a look at the boy to the left. Yeah, he’s skinny but he’s cute as can be, definitely cabin boy material. 🙂

I don’t have a lot on my agenda today, other than editing my novel-in-progress and maybe taking a short walk. My foot’s a lot better but still a bit swollen and sore, so I’ll have to take it easy. I’m taking a friend out to dinner tonight, and that’ll be fun.

All right, everyone, I’m going to read the newspaper, so I will close this post by wishing each of you a pleasant Sunday, wherever you happen to be today. Keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂



Boys and their cameras; cold and rainy day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Most selfies are boring. Do I really want to see what sort of hair care products you keep in your bathroom? But sometimes I’ll come across a few selfies I find very appealing, like the two I am posting here today. I mean, have a look at the guy to the left here. Great hair and skin, nice build. Sweet …. 😉

I slept in late this morning, for the second day in a row. Whenever I take these heavy duty antibiotics they drain the energy out of me.

Last night I watched a Netflix film that really blew me away. It was about the trial of Adolf Eichmann in 1962 and how the trial came to be televised. Of course, a good deal of the film involved the Holocaust perpetrated by the Nazis. Gruesome stuff, but something we all need to be reminded of.

By the way, do you find Mr. Chicago Bulls Cap as appealing as I do? Amazing abs and belly. 😉

I’m going to try and clean my house today, since the weather sucks and I’m pretty much housebound by my foot issues. The place can use a cleaning, so right after lunch I’ll get busy.

All right, friends, I need to get busy, so I will wish all of you a wonderful Saturday, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s important.


Another hot guy in black-and-white; quiet night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Do you find the young man to the left here as amazing as I do. He’s got it all: nice hair and skin, great build, and a nice bulge in the pouch of his briefs. Definitely boyfriend material …. 😉

Well, it’s been an uneventful day for me due to my infected foot that is still sore and swollen, but seems to be getting better. After lunch I drove to the supermarket to stock up for the weekend. Then I cam straight home.

Once home I focused on desk work, handling financial matters, tending to correspondence, and paying my real estate taxes. 🙁 I got a lot done since I didn’t have any distractions. I also got my illuminated Frosty the Snowman up on my deck and ready to automatically light up at dusk. I’ve owned Frosty for 35 years and he still looks great. 🙂

Due to my foot situation I won’t be doing much this evening, other than cooking dinner (fresh haddock) and watching a Netflix movie from my den’s loveseat. Not very exciting, I know, but at least I’m comfortable.  Have a nice Friday night, friends.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; Martin’s in recovery ….

Hi, friends and readers: I love good quality black-and-white photography, particularly when the subject of the photo is a handsome young man like the two in today’s photo posts.

Have a look at Mr. Wavy Hair to the left here. He has beautiful facial features and he clearly knows how attractive he is. I wonder what he’d behave like in the bedroom?

Well, I saw my doctor yesterday. He couldn’t determine what caused the problem with my left foot but the top of the foot is clearly infected. It’s swollen and sore. So he prescribed an antibiotic that involves pills so large they look like they’re intended for farm animals. I took one yesterday and another this morning. The swelling has already gone down a little and the pain is a bit less than yesterday, but the doctor made it clear that I can’t go to the gym or take a run until next week. 🙁

Have a look at Mr. Sailor Boy to the left here. Isn’t he beautiful? He reminds me of my character Tyler in a short story I wrote titled “Fuck Me…Please”. Okay, I know that title sounds a little weird, but if you read the story you’ll understand the title. It’s included in my short fiction anthology titled Sebastian Inlet. In the story, an ex-Marine fresh out of service trades his virginity to a Navy man, in exchange for lodgings in San Francisco. It’s a very sexy story with a sweet ending.

Here’s how the story’s narrator, Forrest, describes Tyler when they first meet:

“I checked him out while he ordered a beer. He was my age, probably five-ten, maybe one hundred and fifty pounds. He had what I call “pretty boy” features: a turned up
nose, dick-sucking lips, and craggy cheekbones. His eyelashes were long, like a girl’s. When he blinked, it was hard not to notice the eyelashes. His hair was dark, cut
short on the sides, a bit of length on top. He turned his face toward mine, and before I could look away, our gazes met.”

I won’t be doing much today, other than editing my novel-in-progress and maybe doing a some light housework. I have to stay off my feet as much as possible, the doctor said. Anyway, have a nice Friday, everyone. And keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂

Hot guys in white towels; Martin’s seeing the doctor today ….

Hi, friends and readers:

My second year of college I lived in my fraternity house, and what a great experience it was for me. I shared a room on the first floor with another brother. The bathrooms were down the hall and we gang-showered with all the other guys on our floor. A very common sight to see were guys cruising down the hallway wearing nothing but a white towel wrapped around their waists, a towel that would soon come off. It was all very sexy, and the photos I’ve posted here take me right back to those days. 😉

The construction crew working next door started at seven AM this morning, making it impossible for me to sleep any later than that, so I got out of bed and made my breakfast. Then I got to work editing my novel-in-progress.

Unfortunately, my afternoon today will include a visit to my doctor. Tuesday morning I woke up with a sore and swollen left foot. I thought I’d bruised it when working out at the gym, but no. It seems some sort of insect, probably a spider, bit me. The swelling had not abated as of this morning, so I made a doctor’s appointment at 3:15 Pm, to have the situation checked out. In the meantime I’m hobbling around like a cripple. 🙁

I was supposed to be having dinner with a friend in the city tonight, but considering my foot situation, I decided to cancel those plans. I’ll spend a quiet evening at home, trying not to aggravate the swelling and pain.

All right, everyone, I need to make lunch for myself, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a lovely Thursday, wherever you might be today.
