Two guys with beefy butts; cool and quiet morning for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Have a look at the guy to the left here. He has a body very similar to my ex-partner’s: muscular ย legs, beefy ass, nice shoulders and arms. I always liked it when he’d ย lie around the house naked. In fact. sometimes I’d outright ask him to, just for my viewing pleasure. Oh well, that’s in the past but I still have my memories, and who knows, maybe I’ll find another guy to hang around my house naked. Anyone interested? ๐Ÿ™‚

And speaking of beefy butts, check out ย the rear end on this guy to the left. Aye-yi-yi, what a babe. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I spent a very pleasant evening at my ex-partner’s home. He has electrical service and it was so nice being the the comfort of air conditioning. I cooked a nice dinner for us and then we watched a Netflix movie. As soon as we went to bed I fell fast asleep and only woke up once, to use the bathroom, before the alarm went off at seven AM this morning.

It’s about eleven AM now and I put in 2-1/2 hours writing fresh material for my novel in progress, which is now at 46,000 words and still going strong. My ex is coming home for lunch around noon, since his office is only a five minute drive from his home.

I found out from a neighbor that the power at my island home won’t be restored until later tomorrow night, so I’ll stay here tonight and probably return home tomorrow, since I need to put fresh ice in my coolers. This afternoon I’ll buy food for tonight’s dinner and I also plan to take a job through the neighborhood to get some exercise.

Have a great Thursday, everyone..

Sexy guys from my laptop; I survived Hurricane Irma ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m writing this post at my ex-partner’s home since I still don’t have any electrical service at my island home after Hurricane Irma rocked the Tampa Bay area.

I’m happy to report that I am safe and sound, and that my home was not damaged at all, which is somewhat miraculous, considering I’m only 100 yards from the Gulf of Mexico. But the storm jogged eastward at the last minute and that movement spared Tampa Bay from any serious damage. I rode the storm out at a friend’s house in St. Petersburg, and returned home Monday afternoon. I spent two nights at home with no electricity, which was pretty miserable but gave me the time to get things back in order. I didn’t even have a broken screen or anything. Just a whole bunch of tree debris. I’m hoping I’ll have electrical service by Friday, but that’s very much up in the air right now.

It’s nice being in a home tonight where there is electrical power. The air conditioning feels oh so good and I know I’ll sleep well tonight.

Oh, but the way, the photos I’m posting here this evening come from my laptop which make it kind of difficult for me to select the photos I want, since I rarely use the laptop anymore, only when I travel. But I still think both guys are pretty damned cute. Don’t you?

Anyway, thanks to of you who messaged me in recent days, voicing your concerns for my safety. I spent two days cleaning up yard debris and now you’d never know my home endured a hurricane. Lucky me.

Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.

Hot guys wearing backpacks; hurricane preparation complete ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I love the look of a sexy guy who’s wearing a backpack but no shirt, especially if he has a body like the guys in today’s photo posts. I especially like the guy in the top photo. Look at thoseย abs. Aye-yi-yi …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Okay, I’m posting very late today; it’s close to five PM and I’ve been busy as hell today because Hurricane Irma is headed for Florida and it’s starting to look like the storm will impact the Tampa Bay area in a major way. It’s quite possible my home may be destroyed by a storm surge, so I had to spend many hours deciding which papers and possessions I will take with me when I evacuate.

I also had to secure all the loose objects in the yard and on my patios. I moves many things indoors: patio furniture and cushions, my surfboard, all kinds of things. I packed up all my essential clothing items, medical stuff, legal documents, photographs, you name it.

My ex-partner arrived here around two PM, and was very helpful. Two sets of hands get things done a lot quicker. We’re staying here tonight, and then tomorrow morning we’ll finish packing up our cars with belongings and leaving the island to stay in the city with a friend. We also have to drive 80 miles north of here tomorrow morning to pull our boat from its slip in the marina where we keep it. We’ll store it in a high and dry place where it will be safe form the storm surge. Then we’ll return to St. Petersburg to ride out the storm. Nobody knows exactly where the storm’s eye will travel or how bad the damage will be, but I feel like I’ve done everything I can to prepare for it.

Have a nice Friday, everyone.

Sexy basketball players; hurricane has everything on hold in central Florida ….

Hi,, friends and readers:

Since everyone liked yesterday’s post featuring sexy football players I decided to focus on basketball players today instead. I don’t know about you, but I find the guy to the left here terribly attractive. I could watch him run around the court all day if he’s keep his shirt off. And imagine running your fingers through his mop of blond hair. Yummy …

Well, I stayed up late last night, watching a cute, gay-themed movie about coming out to friends and family. I had some good laughs, but stayed up later than I should have. As a result, I slept until 9:30 this morning and got a late start on the day.

With Hurricane Irma bearing down on south Florida and possibly visiting Florida’s west coast, I’m trying to start preparations for evacuating from my home and possibly living without electricity or running water for a time. I have to gather my insurance policies and other important papers to take with me, and stow away loose items on my patios so they don’t turn into missiles if the wind’s blowing hard.

See the young man to the left here. A while back he posted several very explicit photos of himself, somewhere on the Internet. I’ve since run across them any number of times and they are quite …. stimulating. I’ll provide a link to the photos at the end of this post.

My biggest concern this morning was filling my car’s gas tank. I tried to do that yesterday on my way home from the YMCA but all the stations I visited were already sold out. This morning I got on the phone and found a station about five miles from me where they had gas. I immediately drove over there, and though I had to wait in a short line, I was able to fill my tank. Success ….

The streets of my island were pretty deserted when I drove home from the gas station. The hotels are pretty much empty and a lot of folks who live here year-round have already evacuated. Me? I’ll stay until I know for certain the hurricane’s headed my way. Then I’ll skedaddle.

It about one PM as I write these words and I have no idea what lies in store in the days ahead, But maybe we’ll get lucky and the hurricane will not hit Florida too hard. Wish me luck, friends.

Oh, and here’s that link to our boy’s photos. This is over-eighteen stuff, by the way:

Sexy football players; hurricane worries for Florida ….

Hi, friends and readers:

College football season started last weekend, but not very well for those of us who cheer for University of Florida and/or FSU. (I went to both schools.) Both teams were soundly beaten in their opening contests. ๐Ÿ™

Oh, well, it’s just a game. And even when they lose, a lot of the players are pretty sexy, especially when they play in garb like the guys in today’s photo posts are wearing. Are those boxer briefs the player in the upper photo is sporting? Aye-yi-yi, how sexy …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sadly, those of us in Florida have a lot more than football on our minds as Hurricane Irma roars into the Caribbean from the Atlantic. It’s a huge and powerful storm that will do great damage wherever it hits, and right now it looks like it may strike southwest Florida. If it does I’m in big trouble, as I live on a small barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico. I’m surrounded by water. If the storm comes I’ll have to evacuate and I may even lose my home to a storm surge. All I can do is hope that doesn’t happen. It’s life in coastal Florida ….

Outside it’s drizzling rain and the sky looks like dirty dishwater. I just spent 2-1/2 hours writing new material for my novel-in-progress, which is coming along nicely. Since today is Wednesday, right after lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. After I come home I’ll gather some food and wine and then drive to my ex-partner’s home where I’ll cook dinner for us and spend the night.

Have a nice Wednesday, friends, wherever you ย might be today.

Beautiful guys and swimming pools; quiet Tuesday on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this website then you know I visit the YMCA three times per week to work out with weights and swim laps in the indoor pool. Lap-swimming is great exercise, plus if I’m lucky there will be some nice sights at the pool like the guys in today’s photo posts. There are some pretty outstanding lifeguards working the pool certain days, and also some very sexy lap-swimmers, so it gives me incentive to get my butt in the water every time I visit the YMCA.

Now that the Labor Day weekend is over, it’s very quiet on my island this morning. I had one of those crazy nights where I went to bed around 10:30 PM and woke up wide awake at three A.M. I never really got back to sleep, and finally I got up at 7:15. I was tired of tossing and turning.

I spent 2-1/2 hours writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, and now it’s a little past 10:30 AM. I’m feeling a little fatigued due to my restless night, but I’m okay.

If there is a breeze blowing out there I may take a three-mile walk on the beach for a little morning exercise, right after I finish this post. Then, after lunch, I have a few errands to run and some household chores I’ll tend to. Around four PM I’ll take a two-mile run, here on the island. I may drive into the city tonight to dine on Thai food with a good friend of mine.

Have a nice Tuesday, friends, wherever you are today. And keep smiling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Guys losing their briefs; quiet Labor Day in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When I was in high school all the guys wore white briefs from Sears, J.C. Penney, or Fruit of the Loom. When I took P.E. the school required all us boys to shower at the end of class, which made for some interesting sights when guys peeled off their briefs. The photos I’ve posted here this morning ring back those memories. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, last night I attended our neighborhood Labor Day celebration. The food everyone brought was oh-so-good, everything from meatballs, corn-on-the-cob, fresh tomato salad and homemade brownies. I pigged out, then came home and crashed on my back porch.

It’s officially Labor Day today and the beach down the street form my house will most certainly be mobbed with folks picnicking and enjoying the surf and sun, but I won’t be joining them. Instead, right after lunch, I’ll dive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. The exercise will do me good. On the way home I’ll pick up some beer and wine, since I’m out of both, and then I’ll have leftovers for my Labor Day dinner.

Okay, none of that sounds very exciting, but I’m fine with it. Have a wonderful Labor Day, friends, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s important. ๐Ÿ™‚

Beautiful twinks day; gloomy morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s no denying the beauty of certain boys in their early-to-mid-teens. Of course, they aren’t legal to touch, and that’s as it should be. But we can still admire them and try to imagine how handsome they’ll be when they reach the age eighteen.

The lad you see to the left here is Aaron Carter, who had to be one of the most beautiful twinks in the world when this photo was taken. Sadly, as he grew older he abused drugs and didn’t take care of himself, and now he looks terrible. ๐Ÿ™

Well, my ex-partner spent the night here last night. We watched two football games which were both disappointments. My Florida Gators lost to Michigan and FSU lost to Alabama. So it was a grim day football-wise. But I cooked a nice meal and we enjoyed each other’s company, so all was not lost.

Now it’s around noon on Sunday and outside the sky is overcast and the air is damp. I have a feeling we’re in for some rain this afternoon, which is okay by me. The rain keeps things cool.

Oh, the boy to the left here posted several photos of himself a few years back, some of them quite explicit. I have no idea who he is but I suspect he’s Irish, just by his coloring. Anyway, I imagine he’s since blossomed into a handsome young man. I hope he found himself a nice boyfriend. ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t have a lot planned for my afternoon, but this evening my neighbors are throwing a pot-luck dinner party, which is bound to be fun. Everyone brings food and drink and we all catch up on one another’s lives. And I don’t have to drive anywhere to participate. My contribution to the party will be a bowl of shrimp which are peeled and ready to eat, along with cocktail sauce with horseradish in it. I predict the shrimp will disappear in about fifteen minutes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since I got all my yard work and household chores completed yesterday, I don’t have much to do this afternoon, other than editing my novel-in-progress. Have a nice Sunday, everyone.

Beautiful guys and phone booths; easy Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Have a look at the photos I have posted here this morning. Notice something odd about them? Um-m-m, the guys in the photos are using pay phones, which are almost nonexistent nowadays. They’ve been rendered obsolete by cell phones, which almost everyone carries with them now.

Anyway, I love both these black-and-white photos. The guys in them are so beautiful. I mean, looks at the abs on the guy to the left. You could almost tap dance on them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last night I went to bed around 10:30 because I didn’t get a good night’s sleep on Wednesday. I woke up two hours later, feeling wide awake. So I got something to drink and then I spent an hour reading in bed until I got sleepy again. Then I slept until nine this morning. I hate it when my sleeping pattern gets disrupted like that.

Now, have a look at Mr. Short-shorts to the left here. I could spend hours watching him talk on that pay phone, as long as he was wearing those shorts and nothing else. Yummy ….

Today is not only Friday but the beginning of Labor Day Weekend. I just finished reading the morning newspaper, and soon it’ll be time for lunch. I don’t have a lot on my plate for today. After lunch I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. Then I’ll return to my island home. I was supposed to have a date tonight with an interesting guy named Jeff, but he just let me know he’d have to cancel, so my evening is now free.

I’m not sure what I’ll do with myself tonight, but that’s okay. I have leftovers for my dinner and a Netflix movie to watch, so I’ll be fine. Have a great Friday, friends. And keep smiling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hot boys in Speedo swimsuits; steamy day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Is there any garment that flatters a young man’s physique better than a simple Speedo swimsuit? I think not. The suit leaves little to the imagination. It’s the least among of clothing a guy can wear in public, and it’s downright tantalizing on the right young man. I think the guys in today’s photo posts look great in theirs. Do you agree?

I spent a very pleasant evening at my ex-partner’s home. I brought fresh grouper to cook for our dinner, which turned out delicious, and then we watched a gay-themed movie courtesy of Netflix streaming. I spent the night down there, and this morning, around 8:15, I drove back home, which took about 35 minutes. The traffic wasn’t bad and by 9:15 AM I was seated at my keyboard and ready to write fresh material for my novel-in-progress.

I spent 2-1/2 hours on writing, and then I did theย L.A. Timesย crossword puzzle, which was pretty tough today, but I licked it.

Now it’s lunchtime and I’ll have something simple before taking a three-mile walk on the beach for some exercise. I have a few errands to run this afternoon and some yard work to perform before I take a two-mile run. Around 5:30 PM I’ll cruise into the city to spend the evening with one of my oldest friends, a ritual I always enjoy.

Have a good Thursday, everyone.
