Guys in backward ball caps; another beautiful day on the island ….

ball cap backward #7Hi, friends and readers:

I wear a ball cap fairly often, especially when my hair’s all messed up. But I never wear my cap backward. I think the backward ball cap thing is strictly for guys under thirty; a guy my age looks kind of silly doing it. But I thin the guys in today’s photo posts look great in their backward ball caps. Don’t you?

Well, I stayed up fairly late last night, I’m not sure why, but I was just enjoying myself on our back porch after I returned home from the party I attended. It felt so nice on the porch, just listening to the breeze ruffle the fronds on our Sabal palms.

Now it’s almost non and I haven’t accomplished much, nor do I have much planned for the day ahead. It’s okay, the weather here is marvelous: sunny, dry, and a little breezy, perfect for walking on the beach and enjoying our beautiful island.

Right now I have to drive my boyfriend into town to retrieve his car from the site of the bar crawl he attended last night with our guests. They had a great time, but I’m glad I didn’t go. I prefer our back porch to bars.

I think we’ll be watching the Green Bay Packers play football late this afternoon, and I will probably prepare dinner for us afterward. It’s a good way to spend the day. Have a great Sunday, everyone.

  1. Hi Martin,
    Just wanted to let you that I discovered your site today and have really enjoyed what I’ve been able to access (I can’t go back beyond page 7). It’s very tasteful – more about sensuality with the photos than raw sexuality (though you do have very good taste in [young] men 🙂 ).
    I particularly liked the way you handled the message from that poor young 16 year old and the replies to his message you posted – very thoughtful. 16 is such a dreadful age for anyone – full of confusion, angst, & uncertainty. For a gay/bi young person who doesn’t “fit in” even more so. Until they find acceptance of their “position” both in themselves and with others it is a dreadfully lonely and isolated time (that, for some, lasts their life-time). I work as a clinically trained psychologist in private practice and frequently see the trauma from this age playing through the lives of many older people (thankfully, societal attitudes are changing and the younger generations are handling their sexual orientation, mostly, with less difficulties than older generations … but sadly we still have a long way to go before we accept people as “people”), myself included. That there are now sites, like yours, which can assist young people in coming to terms with themselves is one of the (?few) benefits of the new techno-age – keep up the good work 🙂
    Also really liked that you posted a photo of yourself that showed a real man (rather than a fantasized twink) who is, gracefully incidentally, aging. Shows a confidence in yourself that many younger (and older, for that matter) people can learn from
    Shame you’re practically on the other side of the world from me (I live in Queensland, Australia) – I would love to sit down with you and your boyfriend and just chat some time
    Thanks for this site

    • Hello Graeme:

      Thanks so much for taking the time to write me at length. I’m glad you enjoy my website. I was fortunate enough to visit your beautiful country in 2006, when a former German exchange student of mine invited me to visit him in Manley Beach, a Sydney suburb. I loved it there. We also did a sailing cruise in the Whitsundays, and we visited Fraser Island as well. Australians are so friendly and welcoming to strangers. And one of my favorite films is “Newcastle”, filmed in Oz in 2008. Again, thanks for writing.
