Beautiful guys in black-and-white; Martin’s tired tonight ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this website then you know I like good quality black-and-white photography, and I thought I’d share two of my favorites this evening.

I like the photo to the left because the guy looks exactly like I did when I was in college: tall, with long sandy hair and a slender body. I like to think I looked pretty good back then, but I don’t wear my hair long these days (Too much trouble.) and I’m not quite as slim as I used to be. ๐Ÿ™

Well, this afternoon I tackled the task of preparing for removal of my existing fencing and replacing it with new, PVC fence. The old fence is 13 years old and falling apart. First I had to cut away all the jasmine vines that were growing on the fence of my main patio. Then I had to cut back bushes from the old fence so the bushes don’t get in the installer’s way. I had to detach various items that were screwed to the old fence, and then I had to move things like tools and patio furniture to they didn’t get in the way. The job took most of the afternoon and now I’m bushed.

Do you like the photo to the left as much as I do? I like it because the young man reminds me of my first partner, who I was with for almost 25 years. He was a beautiful guy with bushy curly hair and a sleek body. Yummy …. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Anyway, I am now showered and dressed and I just cracked open a cold beer. My back’s a little sore but I’m pleased with all the work I got done today. For an old guy I can still labor pretty hard when I need to.

I don’t have any real plans for this evening, other than dining on leftovers and watching a Netflix rental I hope will be a lot more entertaining thanย Blade Runner.ย 

All right, everyone, I’m going to close this post by wishing all of you a pleasant Wednesday night, wherever you might be. Keep smiling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hot guys and white towels; drudgery Wednesday for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

My second year of college I lived in my fraternity’s house with forty other guys. The house had two floors, each with a bathroom that included sinks, toilets and a gang shower area with about eight nozzles. Every evening the parade would begin: sexy guys cruising down the hallway wearing nothing but a white towel wrapped around their waists. And you’d better believe I never missed shower time each night. (What a slut I was ….) ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well, last night I had a delightful dinner with my friend who helped me with my boat yesterday, and then we went to a movie theater to watchย Blade Runner.ย I’m sad to say it was one of the most boring films I’ve ever watched. The pacing was slower than molasses in January and Ryan Gosling’s acting was wooden. I couldn’t wait for the movie to end. ๐Ÿ™

By the way, do you find the guy to the left here as appealing as I do? A white towel never looked so good. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I slept in late this morning because I didn’t get home from the movie till 11:30 and then I stayed up until one AM because I wasn’t sleepy. I skipped work on my novel-in-progress and got busy on housework instead. I have all kinds of things I need to get done today. Tomorrow a fence company is installing new fencing on my property and I have all kinds of prep stuff I need to do in advance of their arrival. That will consume a good part of my day. I plan to take a three-mile walk on the beach before lunch, and I’ll take a two-mile run this afternoon after I finish my drudgery work outside. I’m not sure what I’ll do with my evening, but I have a Netflix film to watch so I won’t be bored.

Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.
