Beautiful guys in black-and-white; rainy afternoon on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site then you know I am a huge fan of black-and-white photography, particularly when the subject of a photo is a handsome young man. See the boy to the right? He looks exactly like one of my college fraternity brothers who I developed a huge crush on my sophomore year. His name was Jerry. He was the shy type, with a beautiful smile and huge, chocolate brown eyes that made me swoon every time I gazed into them. Jerry and I were pretty close but I never told him that I felt a sexual attraction to him. Back then being gay was verboten, so I kept my feelings to myself. I wonder where Jerry is today?

I slept in late this morning. I think I was tired after spending most of the past week on the road. When I finally got up, I made myself some breakfast and read the Sunday newspaper. It was full of interesting articles on the Florida environment and how threatened it’s becoming. Then I worked in my yard for 1-1/2 hours, fertilizing shrubbery and raking leaves up. Just as I finished rain began to fall and then a huge squall line blew in from the Gulf of Mexico. It’s okay, we need the rain.

See the guy to the left here? My first partner looked a lot like him when he was in his early twenties, right down to the curly mop of hair he grew long.

It’s almost 3:30 PM right now and I’ve finished all the household chores I needed to take care of. I’ll do a little reading, and then I’ll have a few beers before I enjoy my dinner, leftovers from takeout a friend and I ordered last night. Have a good Sunday, friends.
