Another beautiful guy in black-and-white; quiet evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since it’s black-and-white photos day on this site, I’m putting up another of my favorites, French model Victor Le Clerc. Isn’t he beautiful? Great skin and hair, handsome face, and a lovely body with just the right of muscle on his frame. He’s definitely boyfriend material. πŸ™‚

I just got home after doing and full workout at the YMCA, followed by swimming a quarter-mile in the pool, and I took a warm shower in the locker room.

When I left the YMCA, I felt rejuvenated and relaxed. I hit the supermarket on my way home to buy fresh salmon for my dinner tonight. I’ll team it with a sweet potato and a fresh fruit salad. Yummy …..

All right, everyone, have a wonderful Monday evening, wherever you might be. And keep smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

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

Hi, friends and readers:

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of quality black-and-white photography featuring handsome young men. I find the photo to the left here enchanting. No, the model’s not showing off his body, but it’s a lovely photo of a guy who meets my criteria for boyfriend material. He’s soΒ cute,Β and I love his blond hair. πŸ™‚

I spent an hour at an open air bar last night, listening to live music with one of my oldest friends. Then we returned to his house where he cooked a tasty steak and made two fresh salads. It was close to ten PM when I got home, and I was soon in bed with a book.

I was up about 8:45 this morning, which is about the time I want t be rising every day, instead of sleeping ten hours a night like I have been. Maybe my medication is finally kicking in. I sure hope so.

I wrote for two hours this morning, working on my novel-in-progress and writing fresh material. I chatted online afterward with a soldier in Iraq who I’m developing a close friendship with. He seems a little lonely over there, and I know he appreciates my communications with him. He’s also extremely handsome. πŸ˜‰

This afternoon, right after I enjoy lunch, I’ll visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. It’s a beautiful day outside, about 65 degrees F and sunny, a nice change from three days of gloom.

Have a nice Monday, everyone.

Guys showing off their armpits; another gloomy day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I have mixed feelings about armpit photos. In some ways, I find them a bit tasteless, but then again, viewing a guy’s armpit hair gives you a good idea of the type of body hair he’s sporting in his briefs, which is kind of tantalizing. Anyway, I think the guys in today’s photo posts are pretty damned sexy, and if I had a date with either of them, I’d probably do a bit of licking and sniffing in their armpits. πŸ˜‰

I had a friend over for drinks last night, then I dined on a chicken breast and a little pasta with sauce from the chicken, t was pretty tasty. I watched part of the Oregon football game, but lost interest early on and ended up reading instead.

I slept in late this morning, but when I rose, I received a phone call from a old friendΒ  I have not seen in 50 years. We attended University of Florida together, but never saw each other after our freshman year.

My friend is in town for his 50th high school reunion, and we are going to have lunch together today. We are both openly gay, but we weren’t out when we knew each other in college, so it should be an interesting visit.

Do you find the guy to the left here as appealing as I do? Would you lick his armpits if he asked you to? I have no doubt I would, and I’d love it. πŸ™‚

Anyway, it’s another gloomy day, here on the island. After my friend visits, I’ll take a two-mile run, and then I am visiting a friend who lives five miles to the north of me. We’ll visit an open-air bar where there will be live music, and then we’ll have dinner at his place. It should be fun.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone.

Another boy and his camera ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m told the young man to the left here is named Seth Segura. I don’t know where he lives or whether he’s in college, but he sure is cute, and his body is exactly the kind I like–just the right amount of muscle. Seth, call me if you’re at loose ends. πŸ™‚

I had a friend over for drinks tonight, then I dined on a chicken breast and pasta. By the end of the meal I felt so tired I knew I’d stay home with a book tonight. I mean, I got a few hits on my gay dating app, and I suppose I could spend the evening with a cute young guy, but I am fine with watching a little college football before I hit the bedroom.

Have a nice Saturday night, friends.

Sexy boys and their cameras; gloomy day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Yes, selfies can be boring. Do I really want to see your messy bedroom or the hair care products in your bathroom? But what IΒ doΒ want to see is a handsome young man wearing skimpy briefs, sharing his beauty with the world. Who could ask for more?

I spent yesterday evening at my best friend’s house, where we enjoyed the cool weather on his deck. We dined on Mexican takeout and drank a few beers before I drove home, arriving here around nine PM.

I spent the rest of my evening by myself, which I was fine with. After spending every evening with friends, it was nice to enjoy a little solitude.

Now have a look at our friend to the left here. He looks great in that Speedo swimsuit, but he needs to get his bedroom in order. Just the same, I’d overlook the mess if I got to spend a couple of hours with him and his Speedo. πŸ˜‰

I slept in late this morning, and when I rose, I found myself at the beginning of a gloomy weather day. The sky is gray and a stiff breeze is blowing out of the north. It’s certainly not a beach day, but if the wind dies down this evening, I may build a blaze in my firepit. I have not used it since April, and I’m ready to see some flames on my patio.

I have some errands to run this afternoon, but otherwise my day is free. I have a few household chores to perform, but that’s about it. All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you at nice Saturday.

Hot boys at the beach; nice Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

While most of the country is shivering during November, it’s still beach weather in Florida, and on the weekends my island gets mobbed by college kids running about in swimsuits and little else. It makes for interesting views when I take a three-mile walk at the shore every Saturday and Sunday.

Now, have a look at our slender friend to the left here. In my book, he’s close to perfect: broad shoulders, slim torso, smooth skin, bushy hair, and a great smile. Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

Yesterday, I spent a quiet night at home by myself, the first evening I’d spent alone in a week. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the friends I spent time with during the last week, but I needed some alone time yesterday. It felt good.

It’s a gloomy morning, here on the island. The sky is cloudy, there’s a smell of rain in the air, and a moderate breeze is blowing. It’s supposed to be this way for the next several days, which I am fine with. I grew so tired of the heat and humidity we endured from May until a week ago. I am looking forward to using my firepit this weekend for sure.

In just a little while, I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. I’ll hit the supermarket on my way home, and after a shower, I will return to the city to spend the evening with my best friend.

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. And keep smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

Sexy guys with hangovers; quiet morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I couldn’t tell you the last time I suffered a hangover from drinking too much alcohol. I try to moderate my drinking. But in my youth, I c an recall some absolutely wicked hangovers, usually after a Saturday of all-day drinking. I’d stare into my bathroom mirror while my head throbbed and say, “Why?”

Oh, well, we all have to learn our lessons in life, don’t we? And I’d say the guys in this morning’s photo posts are wondering what drove them to drink excessively the night before. Time to grab the Tylenol and brew a pot of coffee, guys. πŸ™‚

Well, my German guests departed very early this morning, and I will miss their company. But I didn’t get much writing done while they were here, and it’s time I got back to the business of doing so. I can’t write efficiently when others are stirring in my household, I need solitude, and now I have it again.

Today will be uneventful for me. I have a service appointment for my refrigerator to have a minor repair performed, so I will pretty much be tied down until that is taken care of. If the appointment is concluded by four PM, I will take a two-mile run, here on the island, and then spend the evening with my oldest and best friend. If the appointment ends later than four PM, I’ll stay home this evening instead.

All right, friends, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very pleasant Thursday. And if you have a hangover this morning, you have my sympathies.

An amazing selfie ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Most selfies are mundane, but once in a while I come across one that steals my breath, and the photo to the left is one of those. The young man has an amazing body, an angelic face, and cute tousled hair. His pants are riding tantalizing low on his hips, as if he’s teasing viewers.

I wonder where he lives and what his name is?

I just returned from a visit to the YMCA, where I had a great workout and lap-swimming session, and after a warm shower, I left feeling relaxed and healthy. Oh, how I love being fit.

Tonight is the last night my German guests will spend next door before they leave for Orlando. We’re going to have a few drinks before buying a rotisserie chicken and some sides at our island’s supermarket. We’ll enjoy a bottle of white wine with the meal, and then visit my timeshare to soak in the hot tub.

Have a nice Wednesday night, friends.

When Daddy gets home from work, make him happy ….


Hi, friends and readers:

It’s no secret that, in gay subculture, intragenerational relationships between younger gay men and older gay men are increasingly seen. A significant percentage of young gay men simply don’t care for guys their own age. They prefer older, more mature and grounded men. And what’s wrong with that? The boy in the video clip I’ve posted certainly seems glad his daddy is home from work, doesn’t he? πŸ˜‰

This morning, I woke to discover the temperature outside was 58 degrees F, the coolest since last March, and certainly a welcome relief from the endless Florida heat. I’m actually wearing track pants instead of shorts while I write these words, and how good it feels.

My German guests and I took a sunset sailboat cruise yesterday that was just about perfect. The weather was pleasant, we saw tons of dolphins, and the sunset was pretty. We ordered a pizza and made a salad, and enjoyed a bottle of wine afterward. I was in bed by ten PM, and asleep not long afterward, too tired to even read.

Today, my guests will visit a museum in downtown St. Petersburg, while I will visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. Tonight is my guests’ last night before they move on to Orlando.

Have a nice Wednesday, friends.

A boyfriend in your bed. What could be better?

Hi, friends and readers:

Boyfriends can be a pain in the ass. They cheat on you, lie to you, and don’t even pick up after themselves. And their parents can be annoying. But still… There’s nothing like waking up in the morning and snuggling underΒ  the covers with your beautiful, albeit flawed, boyfriend.

Well, my barbecue dinner party last night turned out great. Yours truly grilled perfect cheeseburgers over charcoal. I provided all the condiments and trimmings everyone needed, and also a nice pot of baked beans as a side. Oh, and plenty of wine. πŸ™‚

It’s another beautiful fall day, here on the island. My German guests and I will take a long walk on the beach after lunch. I have to visit the wine market to restock my supply, and then I’ll take a two-mile run. Around 4:30 PM, we will board a sailboat for a sunset cruise that lasts about 2-1/2 hours. It should be a nice experience because the weather is so nice today.

We will get a takeout pizza for our dinner and team it with homemade salad and plenty of wine, and it should be a nice day all around. Have a great Tuesday, my friends. πŸ™‚
