A pair of retro photos to brighten your day; quiet Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I love old photos from the pre-Internet days when you had to buy X-rated materials from bookstores. I’m quite certain the photo to the left here was taken in the 1970s; it has that look to it. I wonder if the guy on the left is carrying his boyfriend into the bedroom for a romp?

I was up at eight this morning, after a good night’s sleep. I felt rested and ready to write, so after a quick breakfast I got busy at the keyboard ad put in a solid 2-1/2 hours of writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress.

Okay, this photo to the left is not X-rated at all. That’s Luke Halpin on the set of the TV series, Flipper. All the gay boys in that era (late 1960s) were in love with Luke.

Back to reality. It’s eleven AM now and I am done writing for the day. I’ll spend a little time with the morning newspaper, and then I’ll fix myself some lunch. Right after lunch I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout, but I won’t swim laps today because the summer campers will be in the pool. 🙁

When I get home from the YMCA I’ll tae a three mile walk on the beach. I don’t really have anything planned for this evening, but I think I’ll take a swim sometime after dinner. Have a nice Friday, friends.
