Hot guys in Speedo swimsuits; perfect day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you are an admirer of beautiful young men, then you know nothing flatters a sexy guy’s physique like a Speedo swimsuit. It leaves very little to the imagination, but is still socially acceptable attire at the beach or the swimming pool.

Have a look at our friend to the left here. He’s about as close to make perfection as I can imagine–great skin and well-developed muscles, along with pretty hair. How’d you like to spend a day at the beach with him? πŸ˜‰

I didn’t post yesterday because I got so busy I didn’t have time. I was in bed by ten PM with a book, and I didn’t get up until then this morning. I woke to a beautiful fall day, here on the island. It’s sunny, still and about 75 degrees F.

Now, if you like your Speedo-clad men a little less beefy, I know you’ll find the guy to the left here terribly appealing. He’s mighty cute isn’t he? But is he about to peel that suit to his ankles? Why? I guess we’ll never know.

I have family staying in my vacation rental next door, my sister and her husband, and I am so glad the weather will be good during their stay. They are having me over for lunch in just a few minutes, and then I am sure we’ll all go to the beach for a few hours to soak up the natural fall beauty down there. I’ll take a three-mile walk, but I won’t swim. To me, the Gulf water is just too chilly, but I am sure folks from up north will be taking a dip.

I’m having dinner in the city with an old friend. We’ll get takeout pizza and salad, and then we will watch the Gators/Seminoles football game on my friend’s large screen TV. It’ll be fun.

Have a nice Saturday, everyone. πŸ™‚

Beautiful and wet. How was your turkey?

Hi, friends and readers:

It’s 4:30 where I am today, and the chicken I am roasting in my oven is close to being done. I prepared homemade stuffing and a green bean casserole, and in about 45 minutes I will put everything into my Element and drive into the city to enjoy the meal with my closest friend.

It’s a beautiful afternoon, here on the island–75 degrees F, still and sunny. It’s so quiet in my neighborhood I feel like I’m the only person around.

By the way, do you find the young man in the photo I have posted here as lovely as I do? Water beading on his skin only enhances his beauty, I think. I wish he were joining us for dinner tonight. He could be my dessert. πŸ˜‰

Well, have you enjoyed your Thanksgiving dinner yet? I know many people dine at noon or one PM, but in my family we always dine in the evening. Anyway, I hope you all had or will have a wonderful holiday meal. πŸ™‚

Happy Thanksgiving from Martin …..

Hi, friends and readers:

It’s Thanksgiving Day, a time to step back from all the restlessness in our world and give thanks for the blessings we enjoy: good health, a rewarding job, a loving family, good friends and bountiful food. Of course, if you are especially lucky, you’ll be giving thanks for the wonderful boyfriend you are sharing life with, and how much he means to you. Be grateful for his love, his caring, and his quirky sense of humor that can make you laugh no matter how down in the dumps you are.

It’s a beautiful day, here on the island–sunny, still and dry and about 75 degrees F, perfect weather for Thanksgiving. After I have lunch, I plan to take a three-mile walk on the beach for some exercise, and then I’ll get busy on a Thanksgiving meal I will share with my oldest and best friend. I’m roasting a whole chicken, with my mom’s homemade stuffing recipe. I’m also making a classic green bean casserole. Around five PM, I will take the meal to my friend’s house, where we’ll spend some time on his deck, having a couple of drinks, before we dine.

It should be a nice evening, and I am sure the food will be just right. My friend lives alone and has no family, and my only family is a 65-mile drive from here, just too much for me to handle today.

All right, everyone, enjoy your Thanksgiving. Enjoy family, friends and good food, and if you are fortunate enough to have a boyfriend, give him a hug and a kiss, and tell him how much you love him. πŸ™‚


Hot boys in basketball shorts; Martin was a road warrior today ….

Hi, friends and readers:

About tenΒ  blocks from my house is a public park with a pair of outdoor basketball courts, and they are popular with groups of young men, most of whom play shirtless. Sometimes I’ll ride my bike down there to watch them play for 5-10 minutes, just soaking up the sights. All that smooth and sweaty flesh is tantalizing as hell, but after 10 minutes, I figure I need to move on before the guys figure out what I am doing there. πŸ˜‰

Anyway, do you find our friend to the left here as appealing as I do. I love his long hair, smooth skin, slender build, and handsome face. He’s got it all. Wonder if he has a boyfriend? πŸ™‚

Well, it is five PM here, as I write these words, and I did not make a post earlier today because I didn’t have time. I spent my entire day dealing with my boat I keep at a marina 85 miles north of here.

I took the boat into the Suzuki dealer about three weeks ago, for a repair. And today, with the assistance of a young man who lives near the marina, I picked up the boat, drove it to the marina, and got the boat back in its slip. Then I drove home. The whole process took from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM, but at least it’s done, and my boat is running smoothly.

It’s another beautiful evening, here on the island, and I will likely build a blaze in my patio’s firepit, where I can sit and enjoy the flames and the beautiful weather. Have a nice Wednesday evening, friends.

Another guy with sexy abs; beautiful evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Gavin Casalegno, whom you see to the left here, has to be one of the most beautiful men alive today. Not only does he own a set of delicious abs, but his beautiful blue eyes and kissable lips are amazing. I wonder if he has a boyfriend?

I’ve had a quiet afternoon, here on the island. I visited the supermarket to buy everything I will need for tonight’s dinner date, and also for the Thanksgiving meal I will prepare for me and a friend Thursday.

When my date gets here, I plan to build another blaze in my firepit, and it should be a lovely evening. The temperature right now is around 70 degrees, the sky is clear and there’s no wind blowing, just perfect.

Have a nice Tuesday night, friends.

Hot guys with sexy abs; beautiful morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s nothing quite as sexy as a guy with rock hard abs that ripple like a washboard. Sadly, for the most part, only guys under the age of 25 can successfully develop the kind of abs gay men love. After 25, a guy’s metabolism slows, and then goodbye abs. πŸ™Β  Ah, fleeting youth ….

My neighbor came over before dinner last night, and we spent a pleasant hour enjoying a bottle of red wine and a blaze I created in my fire pit. The weather was perfect for the occasion, and afterward, I prepared a simple dinner–cube steak and veggies.

Now, have a look at our friend to the left here. No. he’s not a beefcake, but I think he has just the right amount of muscle and definition on his slender frame. And thoseΒ lips.Β I’ll bet he can do amazing things with them. πŸ˜‰

Well, I have a busy day ahead of me, but a good one. Right after lunch, I will visit our island’s supermarket to buy various things for the Thanksgiving meal I will prepare on Thursday–roasting chicken, ingredients for homemade stuffing and gravy, and for green bean casserole. I also have a date tonight with a very handsome young man who I am hosting for dinner and other activities. πŸ˜‰ So, I’ll need to buy two chicken breasts for tonight’s meal.

It’s another gorgeous fall day on my island–sunny, still, cool and dry. Once I return from the supermarket, I’ll take a three mile walk for some exercise. Then I’ll drive into the city to pick up my date. πŸ™‚

Have a nice Tuesday, friends.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; easy Monday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Its Monday, the day of the week I like to share some of my favorite black-and-white photos with all of you, and I am putting two of those up this morning.

Now, have a look at the young man to the left here. He’s so pretty he’s almost androgynous, which is sometimes find appealing. His facial features are bewitching, aren’t they?

Well, I didn’t get to bedΒ  until two AM this morning, as I needed to wind down from my long day devoted to live music in a outdoor arena. My knees are sore from climbing flights of stairs multiple times to reach the restrooms and the vendors. What a poorly designed facility. And the weather was brutally cold. But I enjoyed the music, the crowd, and the company of my friends. πŸ™‚

Now have a look at our friend to the left here. Isn’t he beautiful? I love his handsome face, wavy hair, and athletic body. If he were my boyfriend, he’d dress like that whenever he was at home, so I could admire his masculine appeal. Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

I have an easy day ahead of me, which is good after my long ordeal yesterday. In just a little while I will place my gym gear in my backpack and head for the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. I need to run a few errands on my way home, and then I’ll spend my evening at home, watching a Netflix rental and cooking a simple dinner for myself. I suspect I’ll be in bed early tonight, and that’s okay.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a lovely Monday, wherever you might be today. And keep on smiling, it’s food for you. πŸ™‚

Sexy guys with long curly hair; long day for Martin, but a fun one ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I met my first partner when I was in law school, and our relationship lasted 25 years. When we first met, he had the most amazing head of long curly hair, much like the guys have in today’s photo posts. I used to love running my fingers through my partner’s hair during sex. Oh, how long ago that was ….

It has been an especially long day for me. I rose around ten AM, and an hour later, after a hasty breakfast and packing up my backpack, I drove to a friend’s house in Tampa. His girlfriend joined us, and the three of us drove my Element to an outdoor music festival.

Now, you must understand, my friend and his girlfriend are half my age. They selected the concert, and I didn’t know who any of the bands were. I would say the crowd was mostly aged 16-35 years old, and I am sure I was the oldest person in attendance, but that’s okay.

The music was stellar, I especially liked the headliner group called The 1975, but we were there forΒ nine hours,Β and that’s not an exaggeration. After the sun went down, the temperature plunged to 55 degrees, and none of us had worn warm enough clothing for the weather. My teeth were chattering for five hours. The beer and mixed drinks were a rip off too, but still I don’t regret going. It was a refreshing, albeit tiring experience, and then I had to make an hour’s drive to get home.

Oh well, I survived spending the day with a huge crowd of youngsters, and I held my own as best I could. I declined the weed offered to me, and even limited my drinking, so I could drive back to my island. Now I am home where it’s warm and safe, and my bed is calling me.

It’s been a good day, but I must close this post out and get some rest. You might want to check out The 1975’s music, I plan to buy one of their CDs. Have a wonderful Sunday night, friends. (Oh, damn, it’s already Monday.) πŸ™‚

Hot guys wearing beanies; gorgeous morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Here in central Florida, it rarely gets cold enough for guys to wear beanies. I hardly ever see that. But in the northern half of the country (Minnesota, the Dakotas, Maine, etc.) I’m sure guys broke out their beanies weeks ago, and doesn’t our friend to the left here look great in his? God, he’s handsome, and thatΒ body.Β I could spend all day licking his torso and arms. I wonder if he’d let me if I asked very nicely. πŸ˜‰

I was out of bed around nine AM, after a good night’s sleep, and the first thing I thought was, “Boy it’s nice to have running water again.” The second thing I thought was, “What a beautiful day.” I turned off my central air system and opened my doors and windows to savor the fine weather–sunny, still and dry, with a high today of around 75 degrees F. After I spent time writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, I watered my freshly-potted flowers on my patios and turned on my fountain, which is gurgling pleasantly as I write these words.

I don’t have a whole lot planned for my Saturday, which I am fine with. I need to run to the supermarket for firewood and fresh salmon for my dinner. I’ll visit a furniture-maker on my island to order two new Adirondack chairs and a table for my patio; they will sit near my firepit. I have a little yard work and housework to perform, and I’ll take a three-mile walk on the beach for some exercise.

By the way, do you find the slinky guy to the left here as appealing as I do? Okay, he doesn’t have the muscles the guy in the upper photo owns, but I like both beef and slender when it comes to men.

I’m thinking that after I finish my dinner I will invite my friend and neighbor over to enjoy a blaze in my firepit. It’s supposed to be a beautiful fall evening, and this will be my first fire since March. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait, actually. πŸ™‚

All right, everyone, here’s wishing you a wonderful Saturday, wherever you might be. And keep on smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

One more boy wearing ear buds; Martin’s got his water service back ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since today is earbuds/i-Pod day on my site, I thought I would put up one more young man’s who’s plugged in and likely oblivious to his surroundings. He’s kinda cute, isn’t he?

Well, the plumbers arrived at my place around 9:30 AM today, two of them. One was a middle aged guy, the other was his cute, 20-year-old assistant. It didn’t take them long to find the problem–a water pipe under my house that had come loose and was repeatedly draining my hot water heater’s tank.

About 2-1/2 hours later, the problem was fixed and I had hot/cold water service with good pressure. You know, you don’t know how great running water is until you don’t have it. Thank godΒ thatΒ problem is solved.

I had a good workout at the YMCA but because I was running late, I skipped lap-swimming and drove home. It’s a pretty evening, here on the island, and in about a half-hour I’ll drive into the city to spend a few hours with my best friend. We’ll dine on takeout and have a few laughs, then I’ll be home around nine or so.

Have a great Friday night, friends. πŸ™‚
