If you follow this site then you know I live in a beach community of Florida’s west coast. The Gulf of Mexico and a white sand beach are 100 yards form my front door, and I visit the shore frequently, to take long walks and swim in the placid water. It’s a beautiful place, and most days, when I take a walk, I’ll encounter handsome young guys form our local colleges, running around in swim trunks and little else.
Yesterday I took a three mile walk on the shore, and I saw a few guys who stole my breath, they were so handsome. Aye-yi-yi …. 😉
I was up around 8:30 this morning, and after a quick breakfast, I sat down at the keyboard with a cup of coffee. I worked on revisions o my novel-in-progress, which is just about ready for submission to my publisher. I’ve worked on the book for ten months, and that’s a long time for me. But I’m delighted with the result.
Today will be a special one for me, because I have a date with a guy I’ met online. We’ve traded instant messages for a few weeks now, but this will be the first time we’ve met in person. He seems like a sweet and intelligent guy. He’s considerably younger than me, but our age difference doesn’t seem to matter to him. He’s visiting me place around three PM and we’ll go for a swim, maybe take a walk along the shore while we get acquainted.
I’m preparing a nice meal for us this evening. He has an early flight tomorrow, so he asked me if we could dine a bit earlier than normal, so I guess we’ll sit down for dinner around 6:30 PM. Yeah, I’m a little bit nervous, but that’s to be expected.
Wish me luck, guys, and have a great Friday, wherever you are today.
