Hot boys in Speedos; nice Sunday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Does anything flatter a young man’s physique better than a Speedo-style swimsuit? Ummm- maybe a jockstrap, but that’s about all I can think of, and you really can’t wear a jockstrap in public.

Sadly, because I live in the US, one never sees boys in Speedo swimsuits. American boys are too modest about their bodies to wear one. But in Europe you see them at swimming pools and beaches all the time. It’s wonderful.

I was up early this morning, to take a three-mile walk on the beach. It was lovely down there: sunny, still and cool. I wore swim trunks and a t-shirt and I was perfectly comfortable.

When I got home I suddenly felt tires and I lay down on my bed, thinking I’d just rest for a minute or two. Instead I fell asleep for 90 minutes, and it felt great to get that extra sleep. Now it’s nearly eleven AM and I’m all good. I have to run a few errands before lunch, and then I will finish painting the exterior of my front door. I need to do some yard work as well, and then I think some friends form the city will come out to my home to share dinner with me this evening. I might also visit my timeshare down the street to swim in the pool after dinner.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will wish all of you a wonderful Sunday. I hope the sun is shining wherever you are today. And if you have a boyfriend (which I don’t right now) be sure to give him a kiss. He’ll love you for it.

Sexy guys and their cameras; busy Saturday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Do you find the guy to the left here as appealing as I do? Yeah, he’s kind of skinny and his hair’s a mess, but I think he’s sexy as hell. I’d drag him off to the bedroom in a heartbeat. 😉

Well, my little dinner gathering last night was a very pleasant way to spend my Friday evening. Good food, wine and company. My guests left around 9:30 PM, and it wasn’t long after that I was in bed, ding a little reading before turning out the lights and drifting into dreamland.

I was up this morning around seven AM, and by 7:30 I was walking on the beach. It was nice down there: cool and still, with an overcast sky. A footrace was taking, involving at least 100 people, so I kept getting passed by runners with numbers pinned to their shirts or shorts. A crew was also setting up chairs and an altar for a beach wedding. Pretty cool way to start my day.

This guy to the left I nicknamed the Selfie Babe. He posted an entire series of very explicit photos of himself, somewhere on the Internet, and of course they’ve now spread into all kinds of tumblrs. He rather amazing, in my opinion: lean and handsome, with bushy black hair I’d love to run my fingers through while we’re…you know. 😉

Anyway, I’ll provide a link to his explicit photos at the end of this post. Be forewarned, you’ll get to see all of the Selfie Babe.

I have a painting project to perform later this morning, right after I do my writing for the day. Then I’ll drive into the city to do a little clothes shopping and also to buy some new bath towels. The towels I’m presently using are about thirteen years old and it’s about time I replaced them. I detest shopping but sometimes it’s necessary. Have a nice Saturday friends, and here’s the link to the Selfie Babe’s photos:

Hot boys in backward ball caps; easy Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I love the way a backward ball cap looks on certain guys. It gives them an air of youthful irreverence I find intoxicating. I mean, check out Mr. Hoodie to the left here. I could spend an hour swapping spit with him. 😉

I was up at 7:30 this morning, to take a three-mile walk on the beach. It was nice down there: sunny and cool, with a slight breeze out of the east. I wore swim trunks and a t-shirt and I was quite comfortable.

Now I’m back at the house and getting ready to work on a writing project. That will consume my morning.

After lunch I’ll hop into my Honda Element and cruise into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and a lap-swimming session.

This evening I’m hosting an old friend for dinner at my place. He is considerably younger than me. I have known him since he was in high school. Now he’s in his early thirties. He’s a straight guy; there’s nothing sexual involved in our friendship. We just enjoy each other’s company. It’ll be a nice evening. We’ll drink some wine and talk about current events, and we’ll talk about our past too.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy on my writing project, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Friday, wherever you might be today.

A sexy sailor in black-and-white; productive day for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I have always liked the photo to the left because it reminds me of a character named Tyler in a short story I wrote in 2008 titled Fuck Me…Please.  The story was included in a Torquere Press anthology now out of print. Fuck Me…Please  was the first story I ever sold to a commercial publisher; it kicked off my writing career in a major way.

In the story a just-out-of-service Marine named Forrest lands in San Francisco nearly flat broke. He has no idea where he’s going to sleep that night.

When he visits a bar to drink a few beers he meets Tyler, who’s a submariner in the US Navy. They strike up a conversation. One thing leads to another and the two end up sharing a bed in Tyler’s hotel. Here’s how Forrest, the story’s narrator, describes Tyler when they first meet:

“I checked him out while he ordered a beer. He was my age, probably five-ten, maybe one hundred and fifty pounds. He had what I call “pretty boy” features: a turned up nose, dick-sucking lips, and craggy cheekbones. His eyelashes were long, like a girl’s. When he blinked, it was hard not to notice the eyelashes. His hair was dark, cut short on the sides, a bit of length on top.”

After the Torquere Press anthology went out of print, Createspace re-published it in my single-author anthology titled Sebastian Inlet, so the story’s still available for reading.

I had a very productive day. The a/c tech went all over my system and got it ready for summer. AT&T installed a satellite dish out back to service my vacation rental, the dish is kind of cool and it gets great reception. I got a ton of editing done on a book I have coming out soon. I did a fence repair; put down slip-proof treads on a set of outdoor steps, spread two bags of mulch, and adjusted all my Confederate jasmine vines I planted two months ago so they’ll grow on my trellises properly. Whew.

Now it’s time for relaxation. Have a nice Thursday night, friends.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; “get stuff done day” for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Anyone who visits this site regularly knows I am a huge fan of quality black-and-white photography. When it’s done well it far surpasses color photography because it forces you to focus on a photo’s content versus the colors.

Now, I am not a huge fan of tattoos. I prefer men whose bodies are not inked. But I understand tattoos are huge with the under-thirty crowd, so I’ll shut up and feast my eyes on Mr. Naked and Tattooed to the left here. What a great body, especially his ass and legs. Yummy … 😉

I’m up early this morning but I won’t be taking a beach walk this morning because today is what I call a “get stuff done day” at my house.  I’m shifting to a new cable TV service and they’re sending a guy out here this morning to install a satellite dish on my house. (I’ve never had one before.) Also, another guy is coming out here to service my air conditioning system this morning.

The guy to the left here is Victor Leclerc. I posted a few photos of him earlier this week. Isn’t he beautiful? I wonder if he’s gay?

Once the service guys are done I’m going to paint my front door, about the last cool weather project I have left to perform before hot weather arrives in May. I also have two bags of mulch to put down in my front yard, and then I’ll take a two-mile run sometime around four PM.  After I shower, I’ll climb into the Element and drive into the city to spend the evening with an old friend. We’ll drink a few beers, and then get some takeout for dinner. It’s a weekly ritual we both enjoy.

Have a nice Thursday, everyone.

Guys getting wet; nice morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

How come some guys look their best when they are soaking wet? I sure couldn’t tell you, but wouldn’t you like t lick the droplets off the skin of the guy to the left? Yummy …. 😉

In keeping with my warm weather schedule, I rose at 7:15 this morning, and I was out the door at 7:30 for a three-mile walk on the beach. It was beautiful down there: sunny, slightly cool, and a little bit breezy. The Gulf was as calm as a mirror, and only a few people were about as I made my way along.

Walking the beach in early morning is good for me, especially right now when I am recovering from my breakup with my boyfriend. It’s going to be a slow process, and I have to adjust to the fact he won’t be a part of my daily life any longer. I’m on my own again, and it’s not something I am happy about.

At times like these I think it’s important to count your blessings, to realize that you still have a lot to live for, even though you’ve lost the person you gave yourself to for seven years. I’m in excellent health, financially independent, and I live in one of the most beautiful places in Florida. I have good friends who care about me, and I have my writing t keep me busy.

This will be a typical Wednesday for me. I’ll work on a writing project this morning. After lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. I’ll hit Home Depot before returning home. Then tonight I’ll dine out with my sister, who is staying next door for a couple of nights. Not a bad day, eh?

Enjoy your Wednesday, friends.

Sexy Brandon De Wilde and Martin’s story about him ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Back in the 1960’s, when I was about thirteen years old, I developed a huge crush on a young film actor named Brandon De Wilde. That’s him to the left here. He appeared in films, on TV, and on Broadway. I always fantasized about meeting him but of course I never did. He died at a fairly young age, in a motorcycle accident near Denver, where he was performing in a play, Butterflies Are Free. 

Several years ago I got it in my head that I wanted to write a short story in which De Wilde appears. The result was Dr. Fungo’s Amazing Time Machine. In the story, my main character, Andre Zaleski (also a De Wilde devotee), finds an ad in the back of a comic book while he’s sitting in a laundromat.  The ad is for a time machine that costs $40.00. Andre orders a machine as a gag gift for his best friend.

But when Andre experiments with the machine, he discovers it really works, and he starts traveling both backward and forward in time.

Then Andre gets an idea. He’ll travel back into time to 1972, the year of De Wilde’s death, and he’ll try to meet him in person at the Denver theater where he’s appearing. When he succeeds in his quest, Andre has sex with De Wilde in Andre’s hotel room, across the street from the theater. The sex is good, but when Andre tries to warn De Wilde about his motorcycle accident and explains about the time machine, De Wilde decides Andrew is nuts and leaves the hotel.

Okay, it’s kind of a nutty story but I really enjoyed writing it. It appears in my short fiction anthology titled Supernatural Love. If you like science fiction and steamy male/male sex, you might want to check the book out.

Have a nice Tuesday evening, friends.

Beautiful Victor Leclerc; nice morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

On Easter Sunday I posted two photos of a beautiful young man, but I didn’t know who he was.

Yesterday, my friend Jakes sent me some information about the model; his name is Victor Leclerc. That’s him to the left, and all I can say is … aye-yi-yi. 😉

I didn’t post on this site yesterday. I intended to but then I got absorbed in a writing project and time just slipped away.

The weather in central Florida is beginning to warm up. Summer is on its way, and that means I start taking my daily three-mile walk in the early morning, right around 7:30 when the temperature is still cool. This morning, I was up at 7:15 and out the door at 7:30. It was beautiful down at the shore: sunny, cool, and calm.

I have a few errands to run this afternoon: wine market and drug store. That’s about it. I have a major writing project to focus on, so I’ll stay busy. Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.

A beautiful boy in black-and-white; happy Easter, everyone ….

Hi, friends and readers:

The photos I am posting here this morning I have posted before, but some of you are new to this site and so I thought I would share them again. They are part of a series shot on the same day. I’m sorry but I don’t know the model’s name nor the photographer’s, but the photos certainly are captivating. I find the model so enticing.

Would you believe I woke up this morning at six? That’snot like me, but with all the changes in my life right now I guess my body’s doing its own thing and I just have to tag along.

It’s seven AM now, and right around the corner our local church is holding an Easter sunrise service on the shore of the Intracoastal Waterway. I can hear the organ playing and soloists singing. I could attend if I chose to, but despite the fact I was raised to be a devout Methodist I am not a believer these days.

I’ll skip the service, but my next-door-neighbors are hosting a post-service gathering at their home with coffee, juice and pastries, so I’ll go over there in about a half-hour, to socialize with everyone from the neighborhood.

This afternoon friends have invited me to share in their Easter dinner, which will be really nice since I don’t have a boyfriend to share a meal with this year. Have a nice Easter Sunday, friends.

Hot boys and their cameras; nice night ahead for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I find most selfies uninteresting but not the two I have posted here today. I like Mr. Naked to the left here, and his nice collection of ball caps hanging in the background. Nice bunk beds too. 🙂

I’m posting late today because I’ve been pretty busy. I woke up around nine AM. The first thing I did was go next door to my vacation rental. My guests left this morning and I needed to wash the linens they used and then remake the bed over there.

I got some work done in the writing department, and then I had to deal with my existing cable TV company and then the new one I am switching to. That seemed to take forever, but I got things done. I took a three-mile walk, here on the island, and it was really nice because the temperature was only around 75 degrees and the sun was shining.

Do you find Mr. Shirtless to the left here as sexy as I do? Definitely boyfriend material ….

After lunch visited our island market to buy a few things. When I got back I washed my cart, which needed it badly after my trip to the fishing camp last weekend. I watered plants inside and outside, and then I took a two-mile run, here on the island. The traffic here today is terrible because the island is flooded with beachgoers enjoying the good weather, and it makes for treacherous running, but I got the job done.

Now it’s four PM and I am ready for a nice evening. A good friend and his girlfriend are coming over to share drinks and dinner with me. I’ll fire up the charcoal grill and cook whatever they choose to bring. I’m providing the sides. We’ll watch sunset from my observation deck, and also watch the sailboats cruise by on the Intracoastal Waterway. It’ll be a good time and I’ll enjoy the company, since my ex-boyfriend is no longer spending time with me.

Have a nice Saturday night, friends.
