Another cute guy on a bicycle; quiet night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since I am posting photos today of guys on bicycles, I thought I wold put up another such photo. I don’t know about you, but I find the boy to the left here interesting. I like his shaggy hair and smooth skin, and I’ll bet he has a wild streak in him. I’d like to explore that streak if he’d let me. 😉

Well, I got all my errands done this afternoon. After I came home and put everything away, I did a workout here at the house, using dumbbells and doing calisthenics. It’s not the same as going to the gym, but it’s okay.

I don’t have much on my plate this evening, the having a drink with my neighbor and preparing dinner–a cube steak, a sweet potato and salad. Yummy ….

Have a nice Monday night, friends.

Beautiful boys on bikes; busy day ahead for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When my first partner and I were in our twenties, we bought a house near downtown St. Petersburg, in a “family neighborhood.” We made no secret we were a gay couple, and all of our neighbors were friendly, especially the teenage boys near us, who were always coming by the house on their bicycles when we were working in the yard. They often wore little other than shorts and sneakers, and I think they were curious about what is was like to be gay. We were always sociable with them and grew to know all their names, but we had a steadfast rule: None of them could come inside our house, not even to use the bathroom or get a drink of water. I think that was wise.

Anyway, those boys are all in their forties now, and probably not as cute as they were back then. But that is life. 🙁

I have a busy day ahead of me. I need to hit the booze market, the bank, the gas station, and the seafood market and butcher shop. I need to visit the office at my timeshare too. I thought I was hosting a friend for dinner this evening, but we postponed that until tomorrow evening.

Speaking of tomorrow, I have to drive 80 miles north to collect my boat and trailer from the Suzuki dealer. Then a friend is going to keep it at his property so he can sell it for me. We will also visit my fishing camp to retrieve my belongings. Then I’ll drive it all home with me.

So, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Monday, wherever you might be. And keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂

Another cute guy in basketball shorts; stormy evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Do you find the young man to the left here as appealing as I do? He sure makes those basketball shorts look good. He’s cute as hell, and I’ll bet he’d be a wild child in the bedroom. 😉

It’s been an easy day for me. I read the entire Sunday newspaper, a real treat since the Tampa Bay Times only publishes a print version twice a week. I cleaned up my kitchen and then did a little yard work before rain and lightning chased me inside. Now I am freshly showered and ready for a relaxing evening, here on the island.

I have leftovers for my dinner, and a nice bottle of Sauvignon blanc to go with it. I’ll watch a Netflix movie and maybe listen to music before I dine. Have a nice Sunday night, friends.

Cute guys in basketball shorts; stormy Sunday on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s a public park about a mile from my house. It has two full basketball courts, and sometimes I will ride my bike down there to check out the boys from my neighborhood playing hoops. Most don’t wear shirts, only basketball shorts, and it makes for interesting entertainment. Who wouldn’t want to play one-on-one with Mr. Swoopy Hair to the left here? Okay, he’s skinny, but so was I at that age.

I enjoyed a nice grouper dinner last night, and then I watched a few episodes of Thirteen Reasons Why. 

I went to bed early last night, and slept until ten this morning. I was tired but I don’t know why. Anyways, I feel rested and ready for a nice Sunday.

It stormed last night, lots of thunder and lightning and heavy rains, and right now I can hear thunder rumbling in the distance. The sky is overcast, which is fine with me. It keeps the air temperature down. I don’t have  much planned for my Sunday, just dining on leftovers and maybe enjoying a movie from Netflix.

BTW, do you find our friend to the left here as appealing as I do? He has a kind of Northern European look that makes me wish he lived in my neighborhood. I’d never  miss one of his games at the park if he did. All he needs to do is to lose that shirt so I could admire his lovely body. Yumm-yumm …. 😉

All right, I am going to get a few things done around the house, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a terrific Sunday, wherever you might be. And keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂






A sexy selfie; it’s time for a beer ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Honestly, I think the photo to the left is one of the sexiest selfies I have ever seen. The guys is handsome, with nice skin and hair. And his lean and muscled physique makes me drool. God, it ought to be a crime to look that good. Don’t you know he gets all the dates he wants.  😉

Well, it has been a quiet afternoon here. I did some laundry, sprayed my patios and gravel out front for weeds. I watched part of a hockey playoff game. (The Lightning won.) And I practiced on my balance board. I put away clean dishes and loaded dirty ones into the dishwasher too.

Now it’s 4:30 PM and I have just opened a cold bottle of beer. I intend to make tonight a relaxed evening. I will likely watch a Netflix streaming movie after I dine of fresh grouper. Have a nice Saturday night, friends. 🙂

Hot guys and their cameras; quiet Saturday for Martin ….

HI, friends and readers:

Most selfies I find uninteresting. Why do I want to see your hair care products or your bath towels? But when a truly hot guy posts a selfie, I’ll save it and share the photo with you. Now I ask you, would you pass up spending  an evening with our friend to the left here? Of course you wouldn’t. 😉

I was up reasonably early this morning, and dove into the day.  I enjoyed a pleasant breakfast and brewed coffee. I solved the L.A. Times crossword puzzle, a tough one.

My Internet service went out and I had to speak with my ISP and ask for a service call. I took care of correspondence and watched part of a Tampa Bay Lightning playoff game. I have some minor yard work to perform, and I have fresh grouper for my dinner.

BTW, I am not a lover of beefcake, but I have to admit, the guy to the left here is undeniably hot. I wonder if he has a boyfriend?

Okay, my Saturday is not turning out to be very exciting, but I don’t need excitement today. I just want to relax and get things around the house in order. I’ll ask my neighbor over for a drink around six PM, and then I’ll get my dinner going. It’ll be a nice evening.

Have a nice Saturday, friends. 🙂

Cute guys in a-shirts; easy day in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Only certain guys can carry off wearing an a-shirt, and Gavin Casalegno, whom you see to the left here, is one of them. Good lord, an a-shirt never looked so good. But then Gavin could wear an empty flour sack and make it look good. Oh, Gavin, if you ever need a boyfriend, I am available. 😉

I was up fairly early this morning, and feeling great after a night of sound sleeping. I shaved and made my bed, and then three together a quick breakfast. I worked the LA. Times crossword puzzle and solved it. Then I checked the online news. My marine mechanic called and said my boat is now fully repaired, and the cost wasn’t too bad. I’ll go up to the river next week and  retrieve the boat. Then I’ll take it to a friend’s house where he will sell it.


Yes, my days at the fishing camp are over. I’ve been single now for 3-1/2 years and going up there has become increasingly difficult since I don’t have anyone to help me with things. So, after I retrieve the boat, my friend will take me up the river to collect my belongings (There isn’t much.) and then I am done. It’s sad, but I am also breathing a sigh of relief.

BTW, the young man to the left here is a Russian porn star known as Vova. He has the most amazing rear end. Of course, this photo was taken when Vova was eighteen, and who knows what he looks like today? But he sure was cute in his day. Hopefully, he’s now a kept boy who lives with a Russian oligarch in Moscow. 😉

Okay, everyone, I have things to do. I need to work out here at home, and get some things done around the house. I dined on Greek takeout last night with my best bud, and I have plenty of leftover for my dinner. Have a great Friday, everyone. 🙂

Sexy rent boys; another steamy day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I used to spend my summers in Berlin, Germany, to escape the Florida heat and humidity. The Berlin summer weather is perfect–cool and sunny most days, with no humidity.

One of the great things about Berlin is the rent boys one can hire at a reasonable hourly rate. They are attractive, polite and eager to please, in hope you’ll hire them again and again.


Prostitution is legal in Germany, at least in Berlin, so it’s all on the up and up. You go online, choose the boy you like, and make a date online. The boy shows up at your place and maybe you drink a beer together before you get down to business. Ninety minutes later, he has showered and left. No muss, no fuss. What a great concept.

I got lucky certain summers and found a boy who became a regular for me. The boys always liked me because I treated them with respect, and I’d hire them fairly often. Most were sweet.

I don’t know why prostitution is still illegal in most states in the U.S., I guess it’s our Puritan heritage that makes people feel guilty about paying for sex, but I never felt ashamed. It’s like ordering pizza. 😉

I woke up early this morning, and right away I knew I would not go back to sleep, so I got up and got busy–shave, take medications, make the bed, and brew coffee. I ate a quick breakfast and read the online news, and now it’s time to write new material for my novel-in-progress.

Have a nice Thursday, friends. 🙂

A boyfriend in your bed. What could be better?

Hi, friends and readers:

I have been single now for 3-1/2 years. And while there are many benefits to living single, what I miss most about having a life partner is going to sleep alongside my boyfriend and waking up next to him in the morning. It’s one of life’s great pleasures, and I still hope to be partnered again one day, so I can enjoy daily snuggling between the sheets. Who wouldn’t want to snuggle with Mr. Strawberry Blond in the upper photo here?

Last night, I watched several episodes of the Netflix series, Hollywood, and it’s pretty good. I especially like the fact it’s set in the early 1950’s because it offers a glimpse into life in Hollywood back then. Some pof the guys are pretty sexy, including a multi-racial gay couple. I plan to watch more episodes tonight, unless something else comes along.

It’s nasty hot and humid outdoors, so I will restrict myself to indoor activities. I have some editing to perform on my new novel-in-progress, and I need to do a home workout. A plumber is coming this afternoon to repair one of my toilets, and I need to run to the seafood market for fresh salmon for my dinner. Not a very exciting afternoon, but that’s okay.

Have a nice Wednesday, friends.  🙂

Another sexy blond guy; quiet evening in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since it’s a beautiful blond guys day today, I decided to put up the photo to the left. It’s one I really like, and not only because the young man is sexy, but I also like the expression on his face, He seems troubled. Did he have an argument with his boyfriend?

I just returned from my physical therapy appointment and a quick visit to the supermarket. It’s hot as hell outside, in the mid-90’s, and I am hiding out in the air conditioning.

Tonight I plan to order seafood  takeout from a good restaurant down the road. I get tired of eating my own cooking all the time, and this will be a nice change of pace. I plan on a quiet night at home. I’ll probably watch a Netflix movie on TV. Have a nice Tuesday evening, friends.
