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.

Beautiful competition divers; beautiful morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I never miss the diving competitions when the summer Olympics are on TV. They are my favorite events, for obvious reasons: the guys are sexy and wearing only tight-fitting Speedo swimsuits like the guys in today’s photo posts.

I mean, check out this guy to the left. He is so beautiful and graceful. Aye-yi-yi …

I woke up at 2:30 this morning, and then I read for an hour until I felt sleepy again. I’m reading a complex novel by Umberto Eco, and Italian novelist who is freakin’ genius. The main character is a guy who is a professional document forger in Paris and a lover of fine foods and wine. I just started the book last week and it’s slow going, but I love Eco’s attention to detail and his snarky outlook on the world around him. I finally got back to sleep around 3:30, and then I slept until nine. Crazy sleep pattern, eh?

Here is Diver #2, who I suspect is Australian; he has that look about him. How I wish he’d appear in a competition in my city. Yummy …. 😉

It’s another beautiful April day outside: sunny, about 75 degrees F, and a little breezy. After I read the paper and enjoy two cups of freshly-brewed coffee, I’ll take a three-mile walk, here on the island, for a little exercise, and to ponder where my life is headed, now that my boyfriend and I have split up. I’m still feeling pretty lousy about the situation, but it’s time to move on.

Since today is Friday, right after lunch I will climb into my Honda Element and drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and a lap-swimming session. The exercise will do me good, as will the camaraderie with my friends I know there.

Have a nice Friday, friends, wherever you might be.

Hot boys flexing their muscles; pretty morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I think it’s funny how young guys like to post photos of themselves flexing their muscles. I guess it’s all about youthful arrogance and showing off. But I think the two photos I have posted here this morning are pretty hot. What do you think?

I spent last night at a friend’s house about a half-hour south of my home, on a pretty island fronting on Tampa Bay. Around sunset time we visited a waterfront park with a six-pack of beer. We were the only people there. It gave me a chance top talk to my friend about breaking up with my boyfriend and the reasons behind it, and it sure felt good to talk about it.

My friend offered me some good advice and also encouragement about my future, and this morning when I woke up I felt much better than I have in weeks. I’ll still have a long way to go before I’m feeling normal again. After all, my boyfriend and I were a couple for seven years and for six-and-a-half years we lived together. So, I’m not going to recover overnight, but I will survive this and maybe come out a little stronger than I was before I met my boyfriend, back on 2010.

It’s a beautiful day here on the island: sunny, about 75 degrees, with a light breeze blowing. In just a little while I will take a three-mile walk to enjoy the nice weather. I have a writing project to work on that will keep me busy a good part of the day. And then tonight I’ll have dinner in town with an old friend.

Have a nice Thursday, everyone.

Sexy boys in beanies; busy Wednesday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

This past Christmas Eve I attended a Green Bay Packers game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. The temperature was 35 degrees F. I was dressed for the weather; I was never cold. But I saw people wearing a retro Packers beanie and I knew I had to own won. My ex-boyfriend bought one for me, and I love it, but since I live in central Florida I don’t get many chances to wear it.

I think a beanie flatters the appearance of certain guys, like the boys in today’s photo posts. Do you find them as sexy as I do? 😉

I slept until 8:30 this morning; I think I was tired after rising at 5:30 yesterday morning. And that’s okay. Dealing with breaking up with my boyfriend has really taken its toll on me, and I have to treat myself gently.

I have a busy day ahead of me. I’ll work on a writing project this morning until eleven AM, when I will take a three-mile walk, here on the island. Right after lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. I’ll visit my CPA’s office to sign my 2016 tax return, and then I’m spending the night at a friend’s house, where we’ll take a nice bike ride and then go out for dinner. I’m really hurting inside from my breakup, and it will feel good to not spend my evening alone.

Okay, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Wednesday, wherever you might be.

The beautiful boy with braces on his teeth; Martin’s up early this morning ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I wore orthodontic braces on my teeth for three years during high school. I hated them and thought they made me look ugly, but I don’t think the braces on this boy’s teeth detract form his appearance at all. In fact, I think they’re kind of sexy. What a beautiful guy. I love his untamed hair and smooth skin. Definitely boyfriend material. I wonder what his name is and where he lives? I’m guessing…Kyle from San Diego. He skateboards, smokes weed, and thinks he might be bisexual. Hmmm …. 😉

I woke up at 5:30 this morning, and that’s early for me. But I’ve decided to take advantage of the early hour to go get my medical lab work done. I have to fast from midnight until my blood is drawn, each time I have this done, so I might as well do it. The lab opens at seven AM, so I’ll leave here in about thirty minutes. No, getting stuck with needles is never fun, but it’s something I have to do every six months. When it’s done I’ll make an appointment with my doctor to go over the results. What fun ….

Here’s a second photo of Mr. Braces, this one taken at the beach. I wonder if he’d let me rub sunscreen onto his back? 🙂

What’s in store for my day, you ask? Not a whole lot. After I visit the lab I’ll return home to work on my novel-in-progress. I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach before lunch. At some point this afternoon I will take a two-mile run for exercise. And I plan to do some yard work also, now that my left hand has recovered from getting used as a pin cushion by my orthopedist. I’m not sure what I’ll do with my evening. It’s so weird to be single again, after being partnered for seven years, but I’ll adjust.

Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.
