Beautiful divers; Martin’s back from a nice fishing trip ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve never attended a swim meet where diving competitions are held. But after looking at the photos I’ve posted here this afternoon, I think I might enjoy a swim meet. 😉

Doesn’t Mr. Green Speedo look good as he plunges toward the pool surface? Aye-yi-yi, what a beautiful body ….

Well, just a couple of hours ago I returned from spending two days and nights at my fishing camp. I went there with a straight friend I have know since he was in high school. He’s in  his mid-thirties now, and we get along really well despite our age difference. He’s a bright and friendly guy who has worked for some large financial firms, but right now he’s taking time off to re-think his life and where it’s headed, so he had the time to go up there with me.

Thursday afternoon we went fishing with live shrimp. My friend caught a monster redfish, a six-pound beauty, while I caught a three-pounder. We filleted them when we got back to camp, and into the ice cooler they went.

Friday morning we took the boat out into the Gulf of Mexico and into the grass flats to harvest scallops in about six feet of crystal clear water. It was beautiful out there, with just a light breeze to keep things cool. In 2-1/2 hours we filled a five-gallon bucket of scallops we later cleaned on my cabin’s front screened porch that overlooks the river.

We put the scallops on ice as well, and early next week we will put together a seafood dinner at my house, and we’ll invite a friend or two to join us in enjoying the feast. There is nothing better than fresh seafood from the Gulf, and I am so looking forward to the meal.

I’m spending tonight with my ex-partner at the house he just moved into, which I haven;t yet seen. We’ll drink a few beers, prepare dinner and enjoy each other’s company. I’m looking forward to that as well. 🙂

Have a nice Saturday evening, friends.


Sexy and shirtless; Martin’s going fishing ….

Hi, friends and readers:

As I’ve said many times on this website, there are certain young men who should never wear a shirt, unless they’re in a church or restaurant. (Okay, or in the classroom, although when I was in college in the 1970s some guys came to class shirtless and barefooted. )

Anyway, I think the guys in today’s photo posts look pretty amazing with their shirts off. Just look at all that smooth flesh and those rippling muscles. Aye-yi-yi, I don’t know which guy I’d choose if I were given an option to spend an evening with one of them.

It’s been a busy day so far. I spent the first half of my morning writing new material. Then I spent the rest of the morning preparing to spend two night at my fishing camp with a good friend. Our plan is to harvest scallops in the Gulf of Mexico early in the day, and then we’ll fish in the afternoons. We’re taking plenty of beer and food so we won;t go hungry or thirsty, and maybe we’ll get lucky and get some cloud cover to keep the August heat down.

My camp is in a very remote location n Florida’s west coast, and I won’t have Internet service so you won’t be hearing from me again until Saturday at the earliest. Do you think you can get along without me for that long?

All right, everyone, I have more packing to do for tomorrow morning’s departure, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Wednesday, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling. 🙂

A pair of slender guys, one with tattoos; another steamy day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m not a huge fan of tattoos, but it seems they’re more common than not among the under-thirty crowd. And hey, if a guy has a slender body like the guy to the left here, I’ll overlook the tattoos. Aye-yi-yi …. 😉

I was up early this morning, and after breakfast I got busy at the keyboard writing fresh material for my new novel-in-progress. The words weren’t really flowing smoothly today, but I got a decent amount of work done, and now it’s around 10:30 AM.

Yesterday, I got it in my head to perform several outdoor tasks, including a bunch of yard work and cleaning my observation deck. It was a blistering hot day and I was sweating like crazy. I kept going inside the house to drink cold water, and after three hours I was exhausted. I came inside and sat under a ceiling fan, just guzzling water and savoring the cool dry air put out by my a/c system. How did we ever live without it in Florida?

Have a look a Mr. Selfie to the left here. Yeah, he’s slender, but in a good way, and I sure wouldn’t mind getting to know him. 😉

I don’t really have a lot planned for my day. I have some housekeeping chores to perform at my house and at my vacation rental. I have correspondence to take care of. I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach this afternoon when the breeze picks up, and then I’ll take a two-mile run, here on the island, around four PM. I’m not sure what I’ll do with my evening, but I will probably watch the Tampa Bay Rays play the Red Sox on TV. It should be an exciting game to watch, as the Rays are chasing the Sox in their division.

Have a nice Tuesday, friends, wherever you might be today.

Boys and their backpacks; Martin’s staying put on the island today ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There is something incredibly sexy about a shirtless young man wearing a backpack on his shoulders, and I don’t know why. But I sure like the look. I especially like the photo to the left here: the boy’s wavy hair, his lean body and Star Wars undies. A few years ago when I first posted this photo I actually heard from the guy who took the photo. The boy, if I recall correctly, is Spanish. Anyway, it’s a great photo.

I got up a little before nine this morning, and right after breakfast I hit the keyboard to write new material for my novel-in-progress. I worked for two hours, and then took a break with the morning newspaper. Now it’s well past eleven and I intend to spend the rest of my day right here at home. Mondays I normally visit the YMCA for a workout, but not today. I have much to do in my yard and inside my house, so I will stay put.

Here’s another one of my favorite “shirtless guy with backpack” photos. I love the way the hair at the crown of the young man’s hair is standing up. And those lips. Aye-yi-yi ….

Yes, it is very warm here today, not exactly ideal weather for doing yard work. But I’ll hope for a breeze and maybe a little cloud cover this afternoon so I don’t pass out from heat exhaustion. 🙁

I spent the better part of last night working on copy edits on a novel I’ll have coming out in October or November. It’s a story about two socially inept guys who travel cross-country in a panel van.They start out as total strangers and end up the closest of friends. I wrote the story earlier this year and I’m very pleased with the way it turned out, especially after my editors added their input.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy. Have a nice Monday, and keep on smiling. 🙂

A pair of sexy fashion models; quiet Sunday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I don’t usually care for fashion model photos because they seem so contrived and the models don’t come across as genuine people, at least to me. But I’m posting two photos today that I find quite appealing. I hope you’ll enjoy them.

The guy in the upper photo is named Kris Brodowski, and I like everything about him: his tousled hair, pudgy lips and blue eyes. Definitely boyfriend material.

The guy in the second photo is Kline Barfield, who is not only  handsome, but a world class skeet shooter. Interesting, eh?

I watched a movie by myself last night, and then I hit the bed around eleven. I was tired after all my labors yesterday afternoon. It’s so damned hot here right now and the heat just saps all my energy.

I woke up around eight-thirty this morning, and after fixing breakfast I got busy writing new material for my novel-in-progress. I wrote at a furious clip for two hours and really felt good about the scenes I crafted.

Now it’s 11:30 AM and I’m done writing for the day. I’ll spend part of my afternoon applying another coat of polyurethane to my new boat box and I’ll also apply two more coats of spray paint to the refrigerator in my vacation rental. Not fun activities, but necessary. If the breeze picks up this afternoon I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach, and then around four PM I’ll take a three-mile run, here on the island. Yeah, it’s hot weather for running outdoors right now, but the exercise is good for me; it helps keep me fit.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will wish all of you a pleasant Sunday wherever you might be today. Keep smiling. 🙂

A boyfriend in your bed. What could be better?

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site then you know I split up with my partner of seven years, just about four months ago. It’s been rough but I’m feeling pretty good about life these days. The one thing I miss the most about having a partner is falling asleep next to him at night and waking next to him in the morning. It’s such a good feeling to have a boyfriend in your bed, and who knows, maybe I’ll find another.

I slept in late this morning. After I had something to eat I ran a couple of errands to the wine market and the paint store. Then I cam home and got busy on two projects. The first was to paint a new plywood boat box for my boat up at the river. This one will double as a seat on the boat. Since I had it custom built it did not come painted, so this afternoon I put two coats of polyurethane on the box and now it’s looking pretty good.

The door on thew refrigerator in my vacation rental had rust on it, so I had to clean and bleach the rust, and then spray paint  the door, which was a real pain in the butt. It’s terribly hot and humid here today and I wasn’t running the a/c over there, which made for a good deal of sweating but I got the job done.

Now I’m ready for a relaxing evening at home. Have a nice Saturday everyone.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; easy Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this website then you know how much I adore good quality black-and-white photography, and I’m in the mood to share two new acquisitions with all of you. I love everything about the top photo: the expression on the model’s face, the way he is posed, and the rough and raw wall he’s leaning against. You can tell he’s disturbed about something, but what? Did he just have an argument with his boyfriend?

Here’s high quality photo I really like. The model has an amazing body and I like his tousled hair. How come I don’t have pectoral muscles like his? 🙁

I was up at 8:30 this morning. After a quick breakfast I got busy writing new material for my novel-in-progress. I worked on that for 2-1/2 hours, and now I’m done writing for the day.

Right now I have a handyman working on my vacation rental apartment next door. When he’s done I’ll make myself some lunch and then I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout. *Maybe if I up the weights I use when I do dumbbell presses I’l get myself more shapely pecs? I won’t get to swim laps today because on Fridays the kids are always in the pool, so I’ll take a three-mile beach walk when I get home.

A good friend is coming over tonight to drink some beer and catch up on things. We’ll grab dinner at a seafood restaurant down the road, and it should be a nice, relaxed evening. Have a great Friday, everyone.

Hot boys in the kitchen; easy Thursday for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Cute guys look especially cute when they’re rummaging about the kitchen  without much clothing on. I mean, check out Mr. Dinosaur Undies to the left here. Isn’t he adorable? I’ll bet he’s going to prepare breakfast for himself and his boyfriend. I wonder if his boyfriend put that bandage on his right calf for him?

I had a really nice evening with my friend last night. We shared a bottle of red wine, up on my observation deck before dinner. It was nice and breezy up there and it was fun watching sailboats cruise by on the Intracoastal Waterway. We shared a second bottle of red with dinner, and the meal was real tasty–a pasta casserole, a garden salad and garlic bread. My friend stayed until around 10:30, and shortly after he left I climbed into bed and read for a while until I got sleepy. The book I’m presently reading is titled Hillbilly Elegy,  and it’s quite good. It’s non-fiction, of course, nothing like the books I write, but enjoyable.

I woke up this morning about 8:30, and after a quick breakfast I got busy writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress for about two hours. I did some laundry in the later part of the morning, and then I took a three-mile walk on the beach after lunch.

Now its’ mid-afternoon and I have two goals. First I’ll take a two-mile run, here on the island. Yeah, it’s warm outside but there’s a breeze blowing so I’ll be okay. After my run I have some yard work to do out front, and then I’ll get back in the a/c to cool down before I shower. Since today is Thursday I’ll drive into the city around 5:30 PM to spend the evening with an old friend who is housebound by mental illness. We’ll drink a few beers and then we’ll get some takeout for our dinner. It’s always a pleasant way to spend my Thursday evenings, and I know my friend appreciates my visits.

All right, everyone, I need to put on my running gear, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a great Thursday, wherever you might be today. Keep smiling. 🙂

Showering outdoors; it’s a pleasurable experience ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Ever taken a shower outdoors? It’s a very nice experience. I have a hot/cold shower on my fenced-in patio and I frequently use it to clean up after I swim in the Gulf. It’s so nice being able to feel the sun and fresh air on your skin while you stare into the bright lue sky. I also have an outdoor shower at my fishing camp. The camp’s in a remote location so showering outside there is quite private and very relaxing.

The guys in today’s photo posts certainly look like they’re enjoying themselves, don’t they?

I stayed up way too late last night watching the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Houston Astros in a an MLB contest. The Rays looked pretty good, considering Houston has the best record in the American League.

As much as I enjoyed the ball game, by the time I got to bed it was close to midnight and then I ended up sleeping until 9:30 this morning. 🙁

I hate it when I oversleep because then I don’t get much done in the writing department. This morning I didn’t do any writing. Instead I read the newspaper and neatened up the house. Not very productive, eh?

Since today is Wednesday, right after lunch I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and maybe some lap-swimming if I can get a lane, which is always doubtful during the summer months.

Tonight I am hosting an old friend for dinner and a swim at my timeshare down the street. He is considerable younger than me. I have known him since he was in high school. He’s 100% straight, but we have always been good friends, and I’m looking forward to spending time with him this evening. Have a great Wednesday, everyone.

Nice little video: a sexy college boy pleasures himself and talks to his g/f ….

Hi, friends and readers:

You guys know I don’t post porn on this site; it’s intended for all ages. But sometimes I’ll come across some X-rated material that I think is worth letting you know about.

Below is a link to a very sexy, self-made video clip depicting a sexy college-age hunk who is pleasuring himself on camera while talking dirty to his girlfriend, Vanessa.

Our boy has an amazing body, a handsome face, and very nice equipment between his legs. So, if you’re over the age of eighteen and not offended by male nudity and sexuality, you might want to see this:

Enjoy, guys …. 😉
