Another sexy guy in black-and-white; nice evening in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

About 12 years ago, I rented an apartment in Berlin, Germany for the summer. Shortly after my arrival there, I met a young man (he was 20 then) who came to stay with em for two weeks. He was a lusty lad and funny as hell, plus he spoke flawless English. The guy to the left here looks very much like my German friend, except maybe he’s a bit more muscular. Anyways, I think he’s pretty damned sexy. Don’t you?

I had a great workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA this afternoon. Then I went clothes shopping on my way home. I found some things I really liked at good prices, so I’m pleased.

Now I’m home and looking forward to spending the evening with my good friend whom I have known since he was in high school. He’s 36 years old, now. And though he’s straight, we’ve always been close friends. It’ll be a fun evening, for certain.

Enjoy your Friday night, everyone. 🙂

Black-and-white beauty; easy Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

You can’t beat good quality black-and-white photography, can you? I think the lack of color makes you focus on the subject matter of the picture, and who wouldn’t want to focus on the young man to the left here? I like the way he appears off-center in the photo, and also the way light is playing on his facial features. I also like the way we are shown a bit of the model’s chest hair. What a nice piece of art. 🙂

I woke up at six AM this morning and spent two hours reading James Baldwin, then I fell asleep for three more hours, so I didn’t get back up until close to eleven AM, a frustrating experience, but what can you do?

I spent a thoroughly enjoyable Thursday evening with my best friend yesterday. We sat under ceiling fans on his second-floor deck while we drank a couple of beers. Then we dined on Greek cuisine. Perfect.

The young man to the left here is Dylan O’Brien, a TV and film actor. He’s no Heath Ledger, but he sure is cute. Who’d pass up a date with him? And I like the way his mouth is gaping while he is looking upward. 😉

In about a half-hour I will climb into my Element and cruise into the city for a workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA. My left hand’s not 100% yet but it’s getting there, and I feel great about getting back into my exercise regimen.

Tonight, a longtime friend who I don’t see too often (He’s so damned busy.) is coming out to my place to spend the evening with me. We’ll drink a little wine, then we’re going out to dinner at a seafood place we both like. I have known him since he was sixteen years old, and despite our age difference, and the fact he’s straight, we always enjoy each other’s company. So, it’ll be a nice evening.

Have a great Friday, everyone.
