Everyone like today’s photo post? I remember when I had a body like that, about 100 years ago when I was in college. I could eat and drink all I wanted to and I never gained a pound. I had a thirty-inch waist and a rippled belly. Okay, I performed distance running every day, but still . . . Why can’t I have that body now?
Okay, one must “age gracefully”, as they say. At least I still have all my teeth and most all my hair, and I keep my weight under control through exercise. Why am I complaining?
If you’re wondering why I posted so late today, it’s because we had storms in west central Florida this morning and they knocked out my Internet service. I just returned from the YMCA and my service is finally restored, so I’m back.
It’s been a productive day for me. I rose early and put in three solid hours of writing. I worked out at the YMCA with my boyfriend. We played basketball and swam laps. Now we’re home and getting ready for a nice evening. I’m preparing dinner, then we’ll visit our little movie theater on the island to see the film, True Grit. I’ve heard it’s pretty good.
On another topic, I heard today from a fellow writer who’s written a book with a character who is a gay skateboarder. The title of the book is Rinse and Repeat. The author’s name is Amberly Smith.
After reliving the same day sixty-two times, Repeater Peat Harris is about to give up on his latest case: saving Jake Schwinn. In the past, Peat has solved some seriously twisted crimes, caught the bad guys, and kept an emotional distance. But this time, his heart’s involved, a definite must-never-do on Repeats, and he can’t just walk away—even if that means putting himself into the bullet’s path.
A year ago, Jake’s best friend was gunned down, and Jake has been playing bait to catch the killer. But now a wicked-looking hottie named Peat is warning Jake that he’s about to die—again—unless they can catch the shooter. Yeah, right. Then Jake starts to remember the previous Repeats and how he and Peat hooked up….
Okay, friends, I don’t know what a “repeat” is. A person who lives twice? A person who keeps re-living the same experience over and over again? But if you’re interested in stories about gay skaters, you might want to check this book out.
