Boys with freckles; easy Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I think freckles on certain young men can be quite a sexy look, and I’m not sure why, but I like the way they flatter the appearance of the two guys in today’s photo posts.

I especially like the photo to the left here. I actually modeled a character in my latest novel after this young man. The character’s name is Terrence. He’s led a sheltered life until the book’s beginning when he and another boy, Levi, make a cross-country driving trip form Orlando to San Jose, where Terrence plans to live with a man he met over the Internet. Along the way, Terrence grows as a person.

This morning I woke around four AM, and then I had to read for an hour before I went back to sleep. It happens to me all the time. Anyway, I went back to sleep around five, and woke at 7:30 feeling just fine. I walked three miles on the beach and took a swim in the Gulf. Then I showered on my outdoor patio.

I spent two hours writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, and now it’s eleven AM. After I finish this post I’ll read the newspaper, and then I’ll have lunch. After lunch I will hop into the Element and drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. This will be my first visit in a week since I was up at my fishing camp for five days, so my muscles will probably be a little sore tomorrow, but that’s okay, it’ll feel good to get my bones moving.

I don’t really have plans for my evening. Perhaps I’ll share a bottle of wine with my friend and neighbor and maybe we’ll visit my timeshare to swim in the pool. The weather here today is warm and humid, not pleasant at all.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy with other things, so I will close this post by wishing you all a very pleasant Friday, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling. 🙂
