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.
