More lover boys; annoying Thursday for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

In keeping with today’s theme, I’m putting up one of my favorite “lover boys” photos. Aren’t they beautiful? And they are not shy about kissing in a public place. πŸ™‚

It’s been a terribly annoying day for me, despite the lovely weather. I’ve got a plumbing problem in my apartment I think I have narrowed down to a leaky pipe under the building. In the meantime, I have no hot water service and very low pressure cold water service.

Thankfully, I have hot and cold water service in my vacation rental, so that’s where I showered tonight. A plumber is due here tomorrow, midday, and hopefully he can fix the situation for not too much money.

I had to cancel my visit to the YMCA and my evening with my friend, so I can deal with this situation. I’ll spend a quiet evening at home, dining on leftovers and doing without water until tomorrow. πŸ™

Have a nice Thursday night, friends.

A day of lover boys; another pretty morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I love photos of two young men getting affectionate with each other, whether it’s in private or in a public place. These days, it’s not unusual to see two men holding hands in a store or on a sidewalk, and I find that terribly refreshing. No more feeling ashamed for who we are and who we love. πŸ™‚

I had a very pleasant dinner with one of my oldest friends last night, we dined on Italian and each had a couple of glasses of Chianti. Afterward, I drove home and watched the Democratic presidential debate in Atlanta.

Isn’t Pete Buttigieg a great guy? Not only is he extremely intelligent and articulate, but he is soΒ damned cute. His husband is one lucky man, and I think it’s cool Pete’s openly gay and married.

Now, have a look at our friends to the left here. Yes, they are young, but they’re old enough to know what makes them happy, in this case, each other. πŸ™‚

I skipped going to the YMCA yesterday, as I wanted to get some work done in my patios, planting flowers and a shrub. It’s too hot in Florida between May and October, to grow flowers, they just wilt. So November is when I plant mine, and they will last until the end of April.

Anyway, I’ll visit the YMCA right after lunch today, to perform a full workout and swim laps. Outside, it’s a gorgeous fall morning–sunny, 70 degrees F, and only a light breeze tickling the fronds of my coconut palms. This weather is the reason we live in Florida, and we revel in its pleasures.

Have a nice Thursday, friends, and if you have a lover boy, be sure to giver him a kiss and a hug today. πŸ™‚

Martin’s favorite water polo player; beautiful day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I have never attended a water polo match, but if the boys competing look anything like the guy to the left, I’d certainly go. Isn’t he gorgeous? I love his lean frame, bushy hair, and smooth skin. He’s definitely boyfriend material. Do you think heΒ hasΒ a boyfriend? If not, I wish he’d call me. πŸ™‚

I had a restless night, waking up around five AM, and reading for two hours before going back to sleep. Then I slept until noon, which I hate because the day was half over when I got out of bed. Will this over-sleeping ever end?

It’s a beautiful day, here on the island. The sun is shining, the temperature’s in the mid-70s, and there’s no wind blowing. It’s so nice I am skipping the YMCA and taking a 3-mile walk on the beach instead.

Here’s another photo of my lovely water polo player, this one taken in profile, and it gives us a better view of his athletic physique. I think he’s amazing, and the fact he has a bit of acne on his cheeks doesn’t detract from his appeal. .

I need to do some more yard work after I take my beach walk. I have another shrub to plant in a pot for my patio. I have a little housework to perform, and some correspondence to take care of.

This evening I am meeting an old friend for dinner at our favorite Italian restaurant, where the food’s great, the wine’s half-price, and the atmosphere is pleasant. I only wish my water polo boy could join us at the table. πŸ˜‰

All right, everyone, I need to get my bones moving, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very wonderful Wednesday. And keep on smiling because it’s important. You’ll make someone a little happier if you do. πŸ™‚

Beautiful boy in a hoodie; pretty night on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Sometimes I’m in a public place–supermarket, shopping mall, the beach or wherever–and I will encounter a young man who is so beautiful he steals my breath. Our friend to the left here falls into that category. I especially like his luscious lips. Imagine what he can do with them in an intimate situation?Β  πŸ˜‰

Even though I got off to a slow start this morning, I had a productive day. I ran errands right after lunch. Then, when I came home, I cleaned my car’s upholstery, it needed it. Then I potted fifteen flowering plants that will bloom all winter and most of the spring. Some are begonias, others impatiens. I used a leaf blower on my patio and cleaned out my water fountain so it spews freely.

Weather-wise, it’s been a perfect day, a high of 70 degrees F, with a cloudless sky and only a light breeze. It was perfect November weather, and I savored it while working outside this afternoon.

Have a nice Tuesday night, friends.

Hot boys on balconies; easy Tuesday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I have spent four summers living in Berlin, Germany, where balconies are a common architectural feature in apartment buildings. I especially enjoyed sitting on my balconies and watching handsome boys pass below me, and sometimes, when I made the acquaintance of a sexy young man, we’d spend time on my balconies, enjoying a beer and the fine Berlin summer weather.

Our friend to the left here seems to be enjoying the fresh air on his balcony, and how nice of him to appear shirtless so we can savor his lean body.

A friend came over for a drink, right after I finished my dinner, and we shared some laughs. By the time he left, I was feeling tired, so I grabbed a book and crawled into bed. I think I fell asleep 20 minutes later, and I slept until ten AM this morning.

Now, have a look at the guy to the left here. I love the way he unbuttoned his shirt before the photo was taken. He obviously knows how sexy he is, and he takes advantage of it at every opportunity.

I have an easy day ahead of me, here on the island, and it is beautiful outside. I need to visit the wine market to restock my supply. Then I will do some yard work–potting flowering plants and shrubs, using a leaf blower on my patios, and cleaning my patio fountain. Around four PM, I will take a two-mile run, here on the island.

I don’t have any plans for this evening, other than cooking myself dinner and enjoying a bottle of white wine. I’ll do some editing on my novel-in-progress.

Have a nice Tuesday, friends.

Another beautiful guy in black-and-white; quiet evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since it’s black-and-white photos day on this site, I’m putting up another of my favorites, French model Victor Le Clerc. Isn’t he beautiful? Great skin and hair, handsome face, and a lovely body with just the right of muscle on his frame. He’s definitely boyfriend material. πŸ™‚

I just got home after doing and full workout at the YMCA, followed by swimming a quarter-mile in the pool, and I took a warm shower in the locker room.

When I left the YMCA, I felt rejuvenated and relaxed. I hit the supermarket on my way home to buy fresh salmon for my dinner tonight. I’ll team it with a sweet potato and a fresh fruit salad. Yummy …..

All right, everyone, have a wonderful Monday evening, wherever you might be. And keep smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; pretty morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of quality black-and-white photography featuring handsome young men. I find the photo to the left here enchanting. No, the model’s not showing off his body, but it’s a lovely photo of a guy who meets my criteria for boyfriend material. He’s soΒ cute,Β and I love his blond hair. πŸ™‚

I spent an hour at an open air bar last night, listening to live music with one of my oldest friends. Then we returned to his house where he cooked a tasty steak and made two fresh salads. It was close to ten PM when I got home, and I was soon in bed with a book.

I was up about 8:45 this morning, which is about the time I want t be rising every day, instead of sleeping ten hours a night like I have been. Maybe my medication is finally kicking in. I sure hope so.

I wrote for two hours this morning, working on my novel-in-progress and writing fresh material. I chatted online afterward with a soldier in Iraq who I’m developing a close friendship with. He seems a little lonely over there, and I know he appreciates my communications with him. He’s also extremely handsome. πŸ˜‰

This afternoon, right after I enjoy lunch, I’ll visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. It’s a beautiful day outside, about 65 degrees F and sunny, a nice change from three days of gloom.

Have a nice Monday, everyone.

Guys showing off their armpits; another gloomy day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I have mixed feelings about armpit photos. In some ways, I find them a bit tasteless, but then again, viewing a guy’s armpit hair gives you a good idea of the type of body hair he’s sporting in his briefs, which is kind of tantalizing. Anyway, I think the guys in today’s photo posts are pretty damned sexy, and if I had a date with either of them, I’d probably do a bit of licking and sniffing in their armpits. πŸ˜‰

I had a friend over for drinks last night, then I dined on a chicken breast and a little pasta with sauce from the chicken, t was pretty tasty. I watched part of the Oregon football game, but lost interest early on and ended up reading instead.

I slept in late this morning, but when I rose, I received a phone call from a old friendΒ  I have not seen in 50 years. We attended University of Florida together, but never saw each other after our freshman year.

My friend is in town for his 50th high school reunion, and we are going to have lunch together today. We are both openly gay, but we weren’t out when we knew each other in college, so it should be an interesting visit.

Do you find the guy to the left here as appealing as I do? Would you lick his armpits if he asked you to? I have no doubt I would, and I’d love it. πŸ™‚

Anyway, it’s another gloomy day, here on the island. After my friend visits, I’ll take a two-mile run, and then I am visiting a friend who lives five miles to the north of me. We’ll visit an open-air bar where there will be live music, and then we’ll have dinner at his place. It should be fun.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone.

Another boy and his camera ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m told the young man to the left here is named Seth Segura. I don’t know where he lives or whether he’s in college, but he sure is cute, and his body is exactly the kind I like–just the right amount of muscle. Seth, call me if you’re at loose ends. πŸ™‚

I had a friend over for drinks tonight, then I dined on a chicken breast and pasta. By the end of the meal I felt so tired I knew I’d stay home with a book tonight. I mean, I got a few hits on my gay dating app, and I suppose I could spend the evening with a cute young guy, but I am fine with watching a little college football before I hit the bedroom.

Have a nice Saturday night, friends.

Sexy boys and their cameras; gloomy day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Yes, selfies can be boring. Do I really want to see your messy bedroom or the hair care products in your bathroom? But what IΒ doΒ want to see is a handsome young man wearing skimpy briefs, sharing his beauty with the world. Who could ask for more?

I spent yesterday evening at my best friend’s house, where we enjoyed the cool weather on his deck. We dined on Mexican takeout and drank a few beers before I drove home, arriving here around nine PM.

I spent the rest of my evening by myself, which I was fine with. After spending every evening with friends, it was nice to enjoy a little solitude.

Now have a look at our friend to the left here. He looks great in that Speedo swimsuit, but he needs to get his bedroom in order. Just the same, I’d overlook the mess if I got to spend a couple of hours with him and his Speedo. πŸ˜‰

I slept in late this morning, and when I rose, I found myself at the beginning of a gloomy weather day. The sky is gray and a stiff breeze is blowing out of the north. It’s certainly not a beach day, but if the wind dies down this evening, I may build a blaze in my firepit. I have not used it since April, and I’m ready to see some flames on my patio.

I have some errands to run this afternoon, but otherwise my day is free. I have a few household chores to perform, but that’s about it. All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you at nice Saturday.
