I don’t know why, but I find the whole shirtless-with-backpack-on-my shoulders look incredibly sexy. I mean, I’m about ready to reach through the fence and grab the guy in the top photo. I wonder what he’d say if I did? It’s also a very nice photo. I like the model’s shaggy hair and the way he’s staring at the camera lens through that wire fence. Very nice work ….
I was a good boy this morning. I rose before eight AM to take my three-mile walk on the beach, followed by a swim in the Gulf. It was very quiet down at the shore. I encountered more seabirds than people, and the sun was obscured by clouds so the temperature was cool. A grabbed a quick outdoor shower afterward, and after a simply breakfast I got busy on a writing project that kept e occupied until lunchtime.
I don’t have many responsibilities this afternoon, just a few errands to run, but tonight is going to be a special one for me and my boyfriend. We are celebrating five years of living together, and it’s kind of hard for me to believe it’s been that long since he moved to Florida from Minnesota. And I credit the longevity of our relationship to our flexibility and our even-tempered approach to life. There’s very little drama in our household. We respect each other and we look out for each other. We also give each other the freedom to do things on our own when we choose to.
So, we’ll celebrate by visiting an authentic German beer hall that just opened in St. Petersburg, where we’ll savor hand-crafted beer and schnitzel, my favorite German dish. Have a great Thursday, everyone.
