More sexy wrestlers; sultry night on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you liked this morning’s “sexy wrestler” photos, then I know you’ll enjoy the two I am posting here this evening. Those singlets don’t leave much to the imagination, do they?

This has been a weird day for me, due to the fact I slept in so late this morning. I did some editing work on my novel-in-progress, and I spent 90 minutes on the telephone with a good friend, giving him advice on a legal matter he’s embroiled in. A part in my refrigerator broke, and I ordered a new one from a very nice lady at an online appliance parts business. They even offer a video explaining how to install the part. I’m not the most mechanically inclined guy on the planet, but I think I can do the job. You know, I have learned that I can do a lot of tasks around my house that I used to shy away from. If I put my mind to something, I can almost always do it.

It’s been terribly hot and humid here today, more like mid-July than mid-September. I can’t wait for the heat to subside, probably five weeks from now, right around my birthday. I had to install a new license plate on my Honda Element, which proved more challenging than you might imagine, due to the fact I had to get on my knees in the hot afternoon sun and get the holes in the plate and frame to line up with the way-too-small holes in the tailgate of my car. Yeesh ….

I’m spending a quiet evening at home, enjoying the air conditioning. I have a Netflix rental to watch and a nice bottle of white wine to enjoy with my dinner, so I’m good. Have a nice Tuesday night, friends.

Sexy wrestlers; quiet Tuesday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I had never attended a wrestling match until my nephew got accepted into his high school’s wrestling squad. I always went to his meets, to offer my support for his efforts, and I quickly learned how rigorous wrestling is. Training and diet are the key to winning on the mat, and the guys who care about their sport sacrifice a great deal to become their best.

Several years later, I befriended two high school seniors who co-captained their school’s wrestling team, and I tried to attend as many of their matches as my schedule allowed. Now, almost twenty years later, we are still close friends.

Anyway, if you ever get the chance, attend a high school or college wrestling meet, and you’ll see how hard the guys have to work to win. Plus, they look pretty amazing in those singlets they wear. 😉

See the photo to the left here? A few years ago, followers of this site voted it the sexiest photo I’d posted all year, and who could deny its appeal? Not me. 😉

Last night, after I ate dinner, a friend and I visited my timeshare down the street for a swim and a soak in the hot tub. A nearly full moon was up and we were the only persons present. I enjoyed a cup of wine while we were there, and when I got home I gave my little boyfriend in Kansas City a call. (He’s visiting me in early October.) We spoke for about 45 minutes before I rang off and climbed into bed. I read a James Baldwin short novel for a bit, then went to sleep, and I did not wake up until 10:30 this morning.

This over-sleeping is driving me crazy, and I guess the hormone replacement medication my doctor put me on two weeks ago is not working very well. I’ll give it two more weeks and then I’ll see my doctor again. All this sleeping is hampering my productivity and I don’t like it one bit.

All right, everyone, I need to get things done around here, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very pleasant Tuesday.
