Beautiful Gavin Casalegno; pretty morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Yesterday I put up a photo of a young man wearing only a pair of blue boardshorts. I thought he was pretty amazing, so I did a Goggle image search and discovered his name is Gavin Casalegno. I guess he is or was a film star but I’ve never seen any of hos work. He sure looks good shirtless, eh?

I was up early again this morning, around 6:30 AM. I spent nearly three hours writing new material for my novel-in-progress. Now it’s well past ten AM and I am done writing for the day.

Outside it’s a beautiful morning: sunny, dry and cool, with no wind blowing.

Since this is Wednesday, I’d normally go to the YMCA for a workout after lunch, but Monday afternoon I was doing some yard work and I bruised the top of my left foot. It’s red and swollen and pretty painful. So I don’t think going to the gym’s a good idea today. Instead I’ll take one or two walks on the beach, so I won’t have to wear shoes while I exercise.

Oh, by the way, do you find the lower photo of Gavin as sexy as I do. Yummy ….

All right, everyone, I must go, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very fine Wednesday, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂

Sexy and shirtless; another beautiful morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve said this so many times that it probably doesn’t bear repeating, but so what. In my view there are certain young men who should never wear a shirt, except maybe to church or to dine in a restaurant. I mean look at Mr. Blue Boardshorts to the left here. Imagine running your hand over his chest and belly? 😉

I woke really early this morning after going to bed early last night. I was tired from my whirlwind trip to Tallahassee and ready for a good night’s sleep. I got one and I’m feeling refreshed as I type these words.

Now, the young man to the left here is Brazilian fashion model Francisco Lachowski, who I think is one of the world’s most beautiful men, especially when he’s not wearing a shirt. Baby …. 😉

It’s another perfect weather day, here on the island: sunny, still and cool, perfect for being outdoors. After lunch I’ll have an appointment with my CPA to sign an amendment to my last year’s tax return. Then I’ll run errands: wine market, bank and supermarket. I’m cooking dinner for my sister and her husband tonight, as they will be occupying my vacation rental for a few nights so  they can enjoy this wonderful weather. I’m looking forward to sharing their company. 🙂

All right, everyone, I have things to do so I will close this post by wishing all of you a lovely Tuesday, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s important.

The world of BDSM and Martin’s novella, “Passion Play” ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Several years ago I had a short novel published titled Passion Play. The book had a a BDSM theme, a first for me, and even now it continues to sell pretty well. Here’s the book’s summary:

“Reverend Luke helps put on the Passion Play at his church every year. Nearly eighty parishioners get involved, and this year brothers James and Marcus Thibodeaux, will participate. James will play Jesus, but there’s a hitch; James is deaf. Marcus will act as translator. James is beautiful and young — almost angelic in appearance — and just the person to portray Jesus. Or is he? When Reverend Luke begins a sexual relationship with Marcus, he discovers things about James that are hardly angelic. Can Reverend Luke convince James to be penitent and worthy of portraying Jesus?”

If you want to check out more specifics on Passion Play just click on the book’s cover in the sidebar to the right on this page. But a warning’s in order here. The book’s not for the squeamish. It contains graphic descriptions of corporal punishment and male/male sexual activity.

It’s another pretty day here on the island, but the construction project next door continues full force and the noise of nail guns and compressors is deafening. 🙁 In about a half hour I’ll have lunch and then I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout. Have a nice Monday, friends.

Ah, the joy of college boys; Martin’s home from Tallahassee ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Friday I traveled to Tallahassee (a five hour drive) to visit a boy who’s a student at Florida State University, where I attended law school. We spent a very enjoyable weekend together and he turned out to be a lusty guy in my hotel room. (Lucky me.) 🙂

This morning, I drove home, leaving Tallahassee around eleven AM. I have always liked Tallahassee with its moss-draped live oaks and towering pine trees. There’s some interesting architecture and the people are friendly. I also dined on some interesting cuisines the two nights I was there.

I just arrived at my home about an hour ago, and after I unpacked I took a nice shower and now I am savoring a cold beer I just opened. Boy, it tastes so crisp and refreshing. 🙂

Outside it’s a gorgeous fall day: sunny, still and about 80 degrees F. In about a half hour I’m  going to sit on my observation deck to watch sailboats cruise by my house and also to watch sunset. I have leftovers I just took out of the freezer for my dinner, and I have a nice bottle of white wine to enjoy with it.

By the way, do you find the young man to the left here as enticing as I do? What great hair and skin, and a beautiful slender build. Just the kind I like. 😉

I don’t have much planned for my  evening. After the weekend I just spent I’m a little tired and just want to relax in my home. I enjoyed my trip to Tallahassee, but trying to keep up with a fraternity boy is a bit of a challenge.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Sunday evening, wherever you might be.

A boyfriend in your bed; it’s the best ….

Hi, friends and readers:

One of the great things about being part of a committed gay relationship is waking up in bed each morning next to your boyfriend. It’s on the things I miss the most from my days with my ex-partner, but maybe I’ll find someone new to wake up next to. Who knows? God knows I am trying. Tomorrow I will drive up to Tallahassee (250 miles) to spend the weekend with a young man I met online back in August. We met in person for lunch last Saturday and things went well, so we’ll see how a whole weekend together goes.

I spent most of my morning today writing new material for my novel-in-progress. Around 11:15 AM I took a three-mile walk, here on the island. It’s a perfect day today weather-wise: sunny, cool and still. Now I’ve had my lunch and it’s time for me to drive into the city to meet with my CPA about an error in last year’s tax return. 🙁 It’s boring but necessary, so I’ll hit the road with my Element.

Tonight I’ll return to the city to spend the evening with my old friend. We do this every Thursday. We’ll drink a few beers, have a lot of laughs, and then get takeout for dinner. It’s always fun. Have a nice Thursday, friends.

The fine gay art of rimming; noisy morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Some people think the gay sexual practice of “rimming” is a vulgar activity, but it’s not if the guy getting rimmed has cleaned himself properly beforehand. And the sensation for both parties can be quite erotic. It looks like the young man getting rimmed in the upper photo is enjoying himself thoroughly, doesn’t it? Rimming is normally a prelude to butt sex, as it helps loosen the bottom guy up for penetration.

There is a construction project going on right next door to me. The old house that was over there was torn down and now a three-story residence is being built. This morning construction delivery trucks started arriving at 6:30, way too early in my opinion. They woke me up from a sound sleep and there was no way I was going back to sleep with all the racket, so at seven AM I got up and got busy. I made breakfast, then got busy writing new material for my novel in progress.

Oh, last night I had dinner with a good friends. Then we saw the new movie The Man Who Invented Christmas. It’s a wonderful movie: great acting, great sets and great costumes. It’s the story of how Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol back in the mid-1800s. I highly recommend it.

Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.

Guys with amazing butts; another perfect day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site then you know I’m a huge fan of the male rear end. A pair of smooth, firm and rounded butt cheeks is about the most beautiful thing one can see. I mean, check out Mr. Blond Hunk to the left here. Imagine him wandering around your house naked, showing off that fine rear end of his. Aye-yi-yi …. 😉

I was up late last night, watching a Denzel Washington movie called Fences. I’d give it a C-plus. Way too long and way too much angst. Afterward I played my guitar for an hour or so before going to bed.

I slept in late again this morning. I seem to need more rest these days, even thought I am feeling quite healthy and energetic.

Here’s another guy with an amazing butt. If he were my boyfriend he’d never wear pants when he was at home. And maybe I’d give him a weekly spanking, just to see those cheeks glowing bright red. Sexy thought, eh?

I don’t have a lot on my plate today, other than running some afternoon errands. I’ll take a two-mile run around 3:30 PM, and then, after I shower, I’ll drive into the city to have dinner and watch a movie with a good friend. Maybe that doesn’t sound like a very exciting day, but it suits me just fine.

Outside it’s another beautiful fall day in central Florida: sunny, dry, and about 75 degrees F, with no wind. That’s perfect in my book. Have a nice Tuesday, everyone. And keep on smiling, it’s important. 🙂

Hot guy with stubble and a ball cap ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I used to dislike facial hair on guys, but since I’ve gotten back into the gay dating world I’ve come to like a certain amount of stubble on a young man. I mean, check out Mr. Ball Cap to the left here and try to imagine rubbing your jaw against his during sex. Yummy ….

I’m keeping this post short because I slept in way too late this morning and I have to get things done around the house before I leave for the YMCA at one PM.

Other than doing some editing and taking a three-mile walk on the beach this afternoon, I don’t have a lot on my plate for today, and that’s okay. Have a nice Monday, friends.

Sexy skateboarders; another pretty morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I have always liked skateboarders. When my boys were in their teens they had friends who were dedicated skaters, boys who practiced their tricks every day for hours.

A lot of people think skaters are stupid and smell bad, but it’s not true. Most of them are smart boys who simply don’t care about personal grooming or fashion. They are nonconformists who don’t care what society thinks of them. And I like that.

Anyway, I’m putting up two of my favorite skateboarder pics this morning and I hope you like them as much as I do. I find the upper photo rather curious, as the boy in the photo is wearing his pants around his neck. Interesting …. 😉

It’s another beautiful fall day, here on the island. The sun is shining, there’s no wind, and the temperature’s around 75 degrees. I slept in late today after spending most of my evening at a friend’s house in town. We drank a few beers and ordered takeout from a Greek place. By the time I got home I was tired. I think I made myself one drink before I hit the bed, and I ended up sleeping until 10:30  this morning.

Hey, sleeps good, right?

I don’t have a lot planned for my Sunday, really. All my housework and yard work is done and I don’t have any responsibilities. Right after I finish my breakfast I think I will take a three-mile walk on the beach for a little exercise. I’ll play my guitar for a while and read the Sunday newspaper and I have leftovers for my dinner so I don’t have to cook. 🙂

All right, everyone, I need to get my butt moving, so I will close this post by wishing you al a wonderful Sunday, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling. 🙂


More beautiful guys in black-and-white; gloomy morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

People really liked yesterday’s black-and-white photos, so I thought I’d put up two more of my favorites this morning. The boy to the left reminds me very much of a guy I had a deep crush on during my freshman year of college. We lived on the same floor in my dormitory and I used to see him naked every day in the shower room. I loved his brown hair, smooth skin and dark eyes. I wonder where Peter is today? God, that seems so long ago, and it’s possible Peter isn’t even alive. 🙁

I woke this morning to the sounds of buzz saws and nail guns. And also to the sounds of giant vehicles humming and growling. A few weeks ago the house next door to mine was torn down and now the owners are building a new one. What joy …. 🙁

My Thanksgiving was a mixed bag, to be honest. I spent most of the day alone. Almost everyone in my neighborhood left town for the holiday, so things were as quiet as an empty church. I went for a three-mile walk, and then took a two-mile run around three PM. Then I popped open a beer and got busy cooking. I made a green bean casserole and homemade stuffing. I brought those items to a friend’s house, along with an apple pie, vanilla ice cream, and a bottle of wine. My friend roasted a turkey. We had a wonderful meal and I truly enjoyed myself.

It’s a gloomy morning, here on the island. The sky is overcast and the temperature is cool. I don’t have a lot on my plat today, other than driving into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. Have a nice Friday, everyone.
