Beautiful guys in black-and-white. Happy Thanksgiving to all my readers ….

Hi, friends and readers:

You guys know how much I like black-and-white photography. I saved two of my newest favorites for this morning, since it’s Thanksgiving. Isn’t the blond boy to the left here beautiful. He reminds me of my college fraternity brother named Ross, who I lusted after every time we showered together.

If you follow this website, then you know I broke up with my partner of seven years, back in March 2017. Today was the first Thanksgiving I woke up alone since 2009, and it felt a little weird. But I’m going to make the most out of my day nonetheless.

Right now it’s raining outside, which doesn’t actually bother me. We get so much sunshine and heat in Florida, so rainy and cool is okay.

I don’t have a complicated day ahead of me, really. I’ll take a three-mile walk, right after lunch. Then I’ll get busy cooking. A friend I’ve known since middle school is having me over for dinner. He’s roasting the turkey and sweet potatoes. I’m making green bean casserole and stuffing, and I’m bringing apple pie and Hagen Daz vanilla ice cream for dessert. I’ll also bring a nice bottle of Savignon blanc.

Not too shabby, eh? Listen, wherever you are today, I hope you’ll have a nice Thanksgiving with family and/or friends. Keep smiling. It’s important.

  1. My favorite boyfriend ever broke up with me the day before Thanksgiving 1992, after 5 and half years together. It came out of nowhere and that was pretty devastating for me. I was under the impression that we had a good relationship. I really couldn’t shake the loss of him for well over two years. Then I saw him again for a holiday lunch in 1995. He had changed so much and not for the better. He looked tired of his free wheeling lifestyle that he led after he broke up with me. He admitted that he felt life was going nowhere for him BUT because he had a lot of pride he said he couldn’t get back with me. After I heard that I didn’t miss him too much anymore. I still hear from him by phone almost every Christmas but it’s just meaningless small talk now. I wish he had never left me back in 1992 but I know I’m better off keeping him in the past as he hasn’t been the joyous, sweet lover I once had. Life goes on for everyone. Happy Thanksgiving.

    1. Hi, Jon:

      Thanks for sharing your personal experience. Like you I’m having difficulty getting over my loss, even thought it’s been almost eight months since the breakup. Like you, I never saw it coming and when it happened I couldn’t believe it. Thankfully I have a good friend to share my dinner with this evening. Happy Thanksgiving to you.

      Martin
