A few days ago I posted a link to a Tumblr titled Boys in Boardshorts and it became an instant hit. People are clicking on the link like crazy, and with good reason. Whoever chooses the photos for that Tumblr has exquisite taste.
The photo to the left is one I posted on my site a few years ago. I lost it when my old website was murdered by Word Press in December 2011, and I thought I would never see it again, but then I saw it the other day on Boys in Boardshorts. All I can say is, “Thank you BIB.”
Oh, in case you didn’t get the link when I posted it, here it is:
Our guests arrived last night, and they are such nice people. We always enjoy sharing our home with our friends, and since these guests are from the frozen north, they are loving our December weather.
This morning we had a nice breakfast at our neighborhood cafe, which is only five blocks from our house, so we could walk there. The food was great and so was the company. Now they’re off to the beach, and soon I’ll take my usual three-mile walk on the shore before lunchtime arrives.
Since it’s Friday I’ll drive into the city this afternoon to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming in the indoor pool. I’m tempted to skip the Y today since it’s so nice out here, but the workouts are important for rehabbing my knees, so I’ll be a good boy and head to town.
It’s beautiful here this morning: sunny, dry and still, with a temperature in the high 70’s, perfect for spending time at the beach. We’re hitting a rooftop bar at a hotel down the road this afternoon for happy hour so we can watch sunset eight floors up. I can’t wait.
Have a nice Friday, everyone. .
