One more black-and-white beauty ….

black and white beauty #3Hi, friends and readers:

I thought I would post one more black-and-white photo here this evening. The boy in the photo is Dylan Dauzat, one of those YouTube/Instagram/Vines kids who has thousands of people following his silly videos. No doubt Dylan is cute, but he comes across as a total douche in his videos. Anyway, I wouldn’t mind coming home one night to find him waiting for me in my bed. 😉

I spent all day painting trellises. I’m about half-way through the job, and maybe I’ll finish up Tuesday afternoon if the weather is good. The freshly painted trellises look great; I’m glad I tackled the job. Now I’m freshly showered and about to visit our community’s quarterly street festival. There will be food and drink, and live entertainment. And there are always some hot guys to check out too. He-he-he ….

Have a nice Saturday night, friends.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; gorgeous morning on the island ….

black and white beauty #11Hi, friends and readers:

At least once a week I like to post some of my favorite black-and-white photos for your enjoyment. Do you like this morning’s choices as much as I do? The guy in the upper photo has that classic young American look to him: lanky frame, broad shoulders, shaggy hair, and a dazzling smile. Who’d turn down a date with him? Not me …. 😉

When I got home from the hot tub last night I was suddenly so tired I could not keep my eyes open, I guess because I spent so much time outdoors Wednesday and Thursday, and because of all the lifting and hauling I had to do at my fishing camp. I ended up sleeping until about 8:30 this morning, but now I feel refreshed and ready for the day.

boyfriend in bedHave a look at Mr. Checkered Shirt to the left here. He looks like he’s beckoning you to join him on that bed. Who could say no?

I have a painting project to work on today. I have to paint three trellises that decorate the front of my house. They have not been painted in twelve years and they need a new coat of paint. This, of course, will involve me spending much of the day perched on a ladder, not my favorite activity, but the work needs done. At least the weather outdoors is lovely: sunny, still, and about 72 degrees F, perfect weather for house painting.

Have a nice Saturday, everyone.

Cute guys with braces on their teeth; I’m back from fishing ….

bracesHi, friends and readers:

I had orthodontic braces on my teeth for three years when I was in my late teens. I thought they’d never come off and I also thought they made me look ugly. But both guys in today’s photo posts have braces on their teeth, and I think they look just fine. Don’t you?

Hey, did everyone miss me while I was at my fishing camp this week? I only spent two nights there, but the weather was beautiful and the fishing was good, so the trip was worth it, even if I had to go up there alone. (My boyfriend, as you may recall, is working out of town for four months.)

braces #2I got home around two this afternoon, and then I had to unload everything I took up there and put it away. Now I’m freshly-showered and ready for a nice relaxing evening, here on the island.

By the way, isn’t this guy to the left a total babe? I’ll bet he doesn’t have any problem getting dates. I wonder if he has a boyfriend?

It’s a beautiful night, here on the island: cool, sunny and breezy. I’ll spend most of this evening alone, I’m afraid, because I’ve made no plans to do anything beyond visiting my timeshare down the street with a friend to soak in the hot tub. (Doesn’t that sound nice?)

Look it sure feels good to be home, despite the fact I had a great time at the fish camp. Thanks to all of you who stopped by in my absence Wednesday I had 2,000 visitors.

All right, everybody, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing you all a wonderful Friday. And if your boyfriend has braces on his teeth be sure to tell him they look just fine on him, and then give him a kiss. 🙂

Boys on boats, soaking up the sunshine ….

on the boat #5Hi, friends and readers:

Florida, where I have lived all my life, is a state surrounded by water. And I live on an island as well, so I am completely surrounded by water. The Intracoastal Waterway is only thirty yards from my front door. And boating is huge in this area of the state. People love getting out on the water, especially young men who wriggle out of their clothing and strut around wearing nothing but swim trunks. It makes for interesting sights form my observation deck. 🙂

I watched a Netflix movie last night, and then I went to bed to read for a bit. I’m starting Michael Chabon’s latest novel, and I already know I’m going to love it because Chabon is my favorite fiction writer. He can write circles around me, but I don’t mind. Some people are born geniuses and the rest of us have to  admire and respect them for their inborn skills.

Anyway, I think I fell asleep around 10:30 last night, which meant I woke before seven this morning. Instead of trying to go back to sleep I dragged my butt out of bed, and after a quick breakfast I got busy editing my novel-in-progress, a 60,000-word book I’m starting to like more and more.

on the boat #2Now it’s 10:30 AM and I am done with edits for the day. After I shave and make my bed I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach, and then return home for lunch. I am going up to my fishing camp tomorrow, to spend a couple of nights, and my afternoon will be consumed by preparations for the trip. I’l hit the wine market and the supermarket. I’ll gas up my car and fill a propane tank, and then I’ll pack for the trip. Because the camp’s in a remote place, it’s important I take everything I will need, so packing takes a while.

Outside, the sun is shining, the air is still, and the temperature’s around 72 degrees, perfect winter weather in central Florida. I know I’m going to enjoy my beach walk today, and also the two-mile run I will take around four PM. All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I’ll close this post by wishing you all a wonderful Tuesday.

Lover boys, getting close; overcast skies on the island ….

lover boys #9Hi, friends and readers:

Do you like the photos I have posted here this morning as much as I do? It’s so nice seeing two young men showing physical affection to each other and not feeling ashamed about it. When I was in high school and college male/male relationships were taboo; if you were gay you hid that fact from everyone except your closest friends and family members, but now that isn’t necessary for most of us, and I think it’s great.

We had a really nice evening last night, consumed mostly by watching by NFL playoff games. My boyfriend is a rabid Packers fan and Green Bay beat the Dallas Cowboys to advance to the NFC championship game. I grilled cheeseburgers that came out perfect. We dined on those, along with baked beans and cole slaw. Delicious! 🙂

lover boys #15Now it’s Monday morning and outside the sky is overcast, but at least the temperature is not cold. My boyfriend will be leaving for Tallahassee in a couple of hours, and then I’ll be on my own for the rest of the day. 🙁

It’s okay, right after lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. I always enjoy my visits there, not just for the exercise, but also for the companionship of my friends there. And I always feel refreshed when I leave there freshly showered and relaxed.

I don’t have much planned for the rest of my day. I’ll do some routine household chores, just small ones, and I’ll spend a little time on my observation deck, watching sailboats cruise by the house. I’ll make myself a dinner of leftovers, and then maybe I’l watch a Netflix movie. I know that doesn’t sound too exciting, but it’s fine with me. Have a nice Monday, everyone.


Naked and asleep. Football in store for Martin ….

asleep #8Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this website then you know how much I like photos of guys who are sleeping, especially when they aren’t wearing anything like the two in this morning’s photo posts. How would you like to walk into your living room one morning to find Mr. Buns in the upper photo snoozing on your  sofa. Would you wake him up would you rather crawl into his sleeping bag with him for a little snuggle? I’d say the latter. 😉

asleep #2And I wonder who took the photo to the left here? It’s clearly not a selfie; the subject is asleep. Was it his boyfriend, perhaps?

I woke up around six AM this morning, and right away I knew I wold not be going back to sleep, so I dragged my butt out of bed. I made a pot of coffee and ha a little breakfast, and then I got busy on my novel-in-progress, a 60,000-word book that still needs a lot of massaging before it reads the way I want it to.

Outside it’s another sunny day, with the high temperature set to peak at eighty degrees F, my kind of winter weather. Today there are two NFL playoff games, and since my boyfriend’s in town we’ll be watching both. I’ve already purchased food for our dinner; I’m cooking cheeseburgers on the charcoal grill. Yummy …

Have a nice Sunday, everyone.

Sexy Asian men; another pretty day on the island ….

asian boy #5Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve always had a thing for Asian men; I don’t  know why. They have such nice skin and hair, and they are unfailingly polite. I used to travel to San Francisco on a regular basis, and whenever I did I would visit a bar on Polk Street where Asian guys went to meet up with Anglo guys. I had a good deal of luck there, but I don’t know if the bar exists today. (I sure hope so. ) 😉

I spent a great evening yesterday, celebrating my friends’ birthdays. We had a couple of beers at a craft brewery, and then we dined on Thai cuisine at a really cool restaurant that was packed with people. Lots of fun ….

asian boy #7It’s a beautiful day, here on the island. The sun is shining, the air is still, and the temperature’s around 72 degrees F. In a few minutes I will take a three-mile walk on the beach for exercise. Then I’ll hit the supermarket to stock the fridge in anticipation of my boyfriend’s arrival. He’s spend two nights with me before he goes back to his internship in Tallahassee, so I want him to enjoy his stay.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will wish all of you a very wonderful Saturday. I hope the sun is shining where you are, and that you’re enjoying your weekend.

Guys with amazing butts; I’m up early and ready to go ….

butt #8Hi, friends and readers:

I freely admit I’m an “ass man”, a guy who likes nothing more than a young man with a firm and rounded butt like the two in this morning’s photo posts. I mean, if the guy to the left here were your boyfriend, how could you resist grabbing those cheeks multiple times per day? Yummy ….

It’s 6:30 AM here, and I’ve already been up for 45 minutes. I don’t know why I woke up so early, but I wasn’t at all sleepy when I did, so here I am at the keyboard, tapping away.

butt #2I had a nice time with my friend in the city last night. We drank a few beers, and then dined on takeout from a Greek place around the corner, which was real tasty. (And speaking of tasty, how’d you like to run your tongue over Mr. Bubble Butt’s cheeks to the left here?) Aye-yi-yi.

I have a busy day ahead. I need to review more edits on my new novel that my editor sent me. I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach, just before lunch. After lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. After the “Y” I’ll run a few errands, and then it’s back to the island to take care of household chores.

Tonight I am taking two good friends out for dinner in the city, to celebrate their birthdays. These guys are considerably younger than me; I have know them since they were in high school, and we have remained close friends ever since. They are straight, but they accept me for who I am, an we always have a good time together.

Have a great Friday, everyone.

Cute boys in the car; amazing day on the island ….

in the car #4Hi, friends and readers:

Oh, how boys love cars. To a guy in his mid-teens, a car and a driver’s license means freedom. No parents around to nag you, just you and your buds cruising the streets and feeling very much the adults. I’d ride with either of the guys whose photos appear in this post. Wouldn’t you?

It is a dazzling day, here on the island: sunny and still, with a temperature hovering around 75 degrees F. I had work to do first thing this morning, but around eleven AM I slipped into my swim trucks, and then I walked three miles on the beach. People were sunning themselves on the shore, including a couple of very hot guys I would not have minded spending time with. (Alas, no time …) 🙁

in the car #6I spent the earlier part of my morning working on edits I just received from my editor for the latest novel I have sold. He’s very good at what he does; I like working with him, and I’ll be working with him again on a second novel his house will publish.

I spent about two hours painting rusty nail heads with rust-sealant paint today. I am repainting the trellises on the front of our house over the next couple of weeks. It’ll be a ladder work, which means very slow-going, and very painstaking labor, but the job needs done. The trellises have not been painted in twelve years and they look a little ragged. This is the time of year to do such work, while the weather is cool And I really don’t mind, as long as I don’t have to sweat while I’m working.

I’m having dinner in the city tonight with one of my oldest friends; we went to grade school together and roomed together in college and again when I was in law school. It’ll be fun.

Have a nice Thursday, friends.

Beautiful guys in black and white; beautiful morning on the island ….

black-and-white-beauty-8Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site then you know I adore good-quality black-and-white photography, especially when the subject of the photo is a handsome young man like the guys in today’s photo posts. I mean, check out Mr. Drawstring Shorts to the left here. If he were my boyfriend he would never wear a shirt, except maybe to a restaurant. Aye-yi-yi, what a babe.

I had one of those crazy nights last night when I fell asleep at ten PM and woke up at 2:30 AM, ad I mean wide awake. Nothing I could do but get out of bed and work on edits on my novel-in-progress. I finally got back to sleep around 5:30 AM, and then I slept until around ten AM. I hate that sort of thing, but I know my body well enough that I don’t try to fight what it wants to do. I had a nice breakfast about an hour ago, and I read the newspaper, and now lunch time is fast approaching. Hey, at least I didn’t have to go to work this morning. 🙂

black-and-white-beauty-11Okay, this second photo to the left has a very sensual feel to it, doesn’t it? I doubt the boy in the photo even knew it was taken, which makes it all the more interesting. He’s exactly the kind of guy I craved when I was in my late teens and early twenties: athletic build, shaggy hair, and kissable lips. Yummy ….

It’s a beautiful morning, here on the island. The sun is shining, the air is still, and the temperature is in the mid-seventies F. After lunch I will drive into the city for a workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA, and then I’ll visit Home Depot to purchase a few items I’ll need for a painting project I will begin tomorrow, here at the house.

I don’t have any plans for my evening, other than watching sunset from my observation deck. This evening should be beautiful, and I want to savor the perfect weather. I’ll take a couple of beers and my Bluetooth cube up there with me, and then I will watch sailboats cruise past the house. Ah-h-h, Florida in January.

Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.
