Cute guys in basketball shorts; Martin’s off to a wedding ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s a park about tenย  blocks from me with two full-size basketball courts. Sometimes I’ll ride my bike down there to watch the boys play a pickup game, and the sights are often stellar, especially when the shirts come off.

Do you find the guys in today’s photo posts as appealing as I do? Mr. Shirtless to the left here has a nice lean body and a turned-up nose. Yummy …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s another nice fall day, here in central Florida, and that’s good because in just about an hour I will atted an outdoor wedding at a county park not far from my home. A friend of mine is getting married. We have known each other since grade school. (And that was a while back.)

*** Update: I could not finish this post before I had to leave for the wedding, so I am finishing it now.

Mr. Blondie to the left here makes my mouth water. What a beautiful guy ….

Well, I have just returned from the wedding and reception, which were both wonderful. The wedding was held at a beach not far from me. It was all very relaxed and informal. Lots of laughs. The reception was held at a yacht club about 30 miles from me and I drove down there with another friend I have known since grade school. The reception was well done:ย  endless booze, live music, and a nice buffet. So many of my oldest friends were there and I truly enjoyed myself. It’s kind of funny attending a wedding when you’re in your mid-60’s and so are the bride and groom.

I’m home now, with a pretty good alcohol buzz on and absolutely nothing planned for my evening. I ate enough at the reception that I won’t need to have dinner tonight, so I’ll just nosh on something from my fridge. Have a nice Sunday evening, friends.

Slender and sexy; another pretty day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When I went off to college, at the tender age of seventeen, I was 6’1″ tall but I only weighed 155 pounds. I pretty much looked like the guys in today’s photo posts. At the time I hated the fact I was so skinny, but now I realize that certain men probably found me extremely attractive. If only I knew then what I know now. ๐Ÿ™ย  In any event, the summer after my freshman year I put on fifteen pounds almost overnight. I actually had muscles, and I was happy about that. But maybe I should have taken advantage of my skinny self. Oh, well ….

Check out this lad to the left. Yeah, he’s skinny as hell, but I think he’s pretty damned cute nonetheless. I’ll bet he’d be a tiger in the bedroom. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s another beautiful fall morning, here on the island. The sun is shining, there’s a steady breeze, and the humidity is low. Right after I finish this post I will take a three-mile walk on the beach down the street from my house.

I have a fairly ambitious schedule for my afternoon. I need to apply a coat of polyurethane to my new patio table my handyman built for me last week. I need to fertilize my shrubs in my front yard, which takes a lot of time. I’ll clean my bathrooms and water my houseplants too.

I’m not sure what I’ll do with my Saturday night, but I don’t plan to spend it alone, that’s for sure. Maybe I’ll meet a friend for dinner at a restaurant. Have a nice Saturday, friends, wherever you are, and keep smiling, it’s important.

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

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s nothing quite like black-and-white photography because it forces the viewer to focus solely on the subject of a particular photo, rather than the colors involved. Our naked friend to the left here doesn’t seem too happy, does he? Did he just have a bedroom quarrel with his boyfriend? Or did he fail to perform adequately during sex? We’ll never know, will we?

Because I got up so early yesterday I ended up sleeping late this morning. Now it’s already ten AM and I haven’t accomplished a thing in the writing department. ๐Ÿ™

It’s okay, I have the morning newspaper to read and then perhaps I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach before I prepare a simply lunch for myself.

Here’s a second photo I have always cherished. The young man is beautiful, of course, in the way only 19-year-olds can be. But I love the expression on his face and the way the photographer caught the water flying off the model’s head. Beautiful ….

I have an easy Friday ahead of me, really. After lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and a lap-swimming session. I’ll stop at our neighborhood market for a few things, and then I have to be home by four PM to meet a gentleman who is renting my vacation apartment next door for two weeks.

I have a Netflix DVD arriving in the mail this afternoon that I am really looking forward to watching. It’s a Jeff Bridges film calledย Hell or High Water and I have seen a few previews that were pretty hilarious.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Friday, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lover boys, getting close; pretty fall day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I love photos of two guys getting affectionate with each other, whether it’s in public or private. It’s a nice thing to see, and I think the photos I’m posting here this morning are heartwarming. Don’t you agree?

I crawled out of bed this morning at seven AM, and then drove myself to a medical laboratory to have blood drawn from my arm for my semi-annual checkup with my primary care physician. When you’re my age you have to do such things to make sure you’re in good health. I couldn’t eat or drink anything until after the blood was drawn, so I was ready for breakfast when I got home.

I spent the rest of my morning writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, and now it’s almost lunchtime. I make something quick, and then I need to get busy cleaning up the patio at my vacation rental next door. I need to rake up leaves and lay down fresh bags of mulch. I have a renter coming in form Canada on Friday afternoon and I want things to look nice for him. He’ll be staying two weeks and he’s arriving at just the right time because cool fall weather has finally arrived in central Florida. Outside it’s sunny and about 75 degrees, perfect weather for doing yard work.

Have a nice Thursday, everyone.

A sexy country boy and his selfie; quiet night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve been in the sack with several country boys in my lifetime, guys who wore ball caps and blue jeans and rarely wore shirts. The guy to the left here reminds me of one country boy in particular. His name was Dexter. I met him through a straight friend and I assumed Dexter was straight too.

Well ….

The day after I met him he was knocking on my door around ten at night, a little drunk on beer and ready for a tumble in the bedroom. What a handful he was, and a total bottom. Of course he was totally closeted, but he kept coming by on a regular basis for about a year, until he enlisted in the military. I haven’t heard from him since and probably never will.

Dexter, where are you today?

I had a great workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA and then I hit Home Depot for bags of mulch and a sprinkler head I’ll use to repair a broken head in my watering system. Now I’m home and ready for a quiet evening alone. Have a great Wednesday night, friends.

Nice little “lover boys” video; nice morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I don’t often post video clips on this site because they take up too much space on the server I work with, but I saw this one this morning and knew I had to put it up. It’s so refreshing to see two handsome guys showing affection to each other in a public place, plus the guys in the video are soย cute.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

I was up at eight AM this morning, and when I walked out my front door to retrieve the newspaper I was greeted by the first cool morning we’ve had since last May. It actually felt good to be outdoors. I don’t know if this is finally the end of our Florida summer but I hope so.

Today will be a typical Wednesday for me. I just finished writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, and now it’s close to eleven AM. After I finish this post I’ll peruse the newspaper and maybe work a cross word puzzle. Then, after lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. A trip to Home Depot’s in order after that, and then I’m come home.

Have a great Wednesday, everyone.

A pair of super handsome guys; easy night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

You know, it’s just not fair how certain guys are blessed with good looks that are downright stunning. I mean, check out Mr. Plum-Colored Undies to the left here. Who’d pass up a date withย him.ย Answer: no one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had a very productive day today. After doing some solid writing this morning, I devoted my afternoon to chores. I tidied up my vacation rental apartment next door so it’s ready for the next renter who arrives Friday. I even washed the windows that were covered with salt spray from the hurricane. I washed my car, inside and out, and now it’s nice and clean. I changed air conditioner filters, and then I took a two-mile run, here on the island. After a shower I went to the supermarket to buy food for tonight’s dinner.

See the guy to the left here? He looks just like a guy my older sister dated when I was in high school. I developed a huge crush on him, which only got worse when he and I shared a hotel bed one night in Ft. Lauderdale. Dan, where are you today?

My friend I’m cooking for called me around noon to say he was feeling much better and wanted to come over for dinner. I’ll grill pork chops over charcoal, and team those with steamed yellow squash and mac & cheese, a delicious combination.

I think we’ll watch a Netflix DVD I got in the mail yesterday, right after dinner, so it should be a nice evening.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Tuesday night. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cute boys with freckles; gloomy skies on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I find freckles on a young man’s face utterly charming. Sadly, the freckles tend to fade as a guy reaches his early twenties, but that’s life. I think both guys in today’s photo posts look great. Don’t you?

I was up at eight AM this morning, and right after I fixed breakfast I got busy writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, which involved some Internet research on two subjects: (1) grooming citrus groves, and (2) how to properly muck a horse stall. I had a productive morning and now I’m done writing for the day.

While I was writing this morning the air conditioning tech arrived to put a new fan motor in my compressor, and hopefully the problems I experienced last week will not return.

Outside the sky is overcast and it’s actually somewhat cool for the first time since last May. I have a guest checking into my vacation rental Friday, and right after lunch today I’ll go next door to freshen things up and get the apartment ready for occupancy. The apartment’s already clean but I need to dust the blinds and do other little things like that. I also need to clean up the patio.

Around four PM I will take a two-mile run, here on the island, and then maybe I’ll take advantage of the cool weather to wash my car, inside and out. It really needs a good cleaning after all the road construction going on here.

I may be having a friend over for dinner tonight if he’s feeling up to it. We talked last night and he’s trying to fight off a head cold. So, we’ll see. Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.

More guys with backpacks; quiet evening in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

The photos I posted here this morning were quite a hit, so being the nice guy that I am I’m putting up two more “backpack guys” photos this evening. I love the expression on the guy’s face to the left, and I like his lean body even more. Aye-yi-yi …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had a good workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA this afternoon. It felt good to get my muscles moving and my lungs pumping. After a shower I left the “Y” feeling relaxed and ready for a nice evening.

Oh, have a look at Mr. Green Boardshorts to the left here. Nice lean body, nice muscles, pretty hair, and eyes with almost a cruel look to them. Yummy …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s a quiet night, here on the island. As sunset approaches the temperature begins to drop and it’s comfortable enough for me to sit on my elevated deck with my i-Pod and my Beats headphones. It’s a nice was to segue into the evening.

I don’t have anything planned for my evening, really, and that’s okay. I have some editing work to perform on the material I wrote this morning. I have some tasty leftovers I’ll warm up in the microwave, and a good bottle of white wine to enjoy with the meal. I’ll do a little reading and try to call it an early night because I have an air conditioning service tech coming in the early morning to replace a part in my system .

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a lovely Monday night, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling, it’s important. ๐Ÿ™‚

Shirtless guys with backpacks; typical Monday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s something terribly sexy-looking about a young man who shirtless but wearing a backpack on his shoulders. It’s a special look only certain guys can carry off, but I think Mr. Star Wars Undies to the left here looks amazing. I love his tousled hair, slim physique and smooth skin. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was up at 7:30 this morning, feeling wide awake. I made a quick breakfast and then I got busy writing new material for my novel-in-progress. I wrote for 2-1/2 hours and then I took a break to water the new shrubs I planted on my patio Saturday. In Florida, anyway, you have to keep freshly-transplanted shrubs wet for the first month they’re in the ground or they won’t root properly. Boy, it sure looks nice on my patio now, with the new fence and all. I have some nice yellow flowers growing out there too.

Now, would you agree with me that Mr. Muscles to the left here is definitely boyfriend material. I could follow him around all day long.

Today will be a typical Monday for me. Right after I finish this post I will takeย  care of correspondence. Then, after a quick lunch I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. Last week my life was so disruptive that I only got to visit the YMCA on Friday, and this week I look forward to getting back on schedule. Going to the “Y” is god for me. It gets me off the island and out among people, after spending my mornings in solitude.

I don’t really have any plans for my evening, other than dining on leftovers and maybe watching a Netflix rental that just arrived in yesterday’s mail. Have a nice Monday, everyone.
