A pair of handsome guys; blazing hot day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Sometimes I’ll be out in public, at a ball game or shopping or walking on the beach, and I’ll encounter a young man who is so handsome my heart skips a beat, just looking at him. And that’s probably what would happen if I came across either guy in today’s photo posts. I mean, check out Mr. Wavy Hair to the left here. Who’d pass up a date with him? Not me, that’s for certain. πŸ˜‰

I rose at a reasonable hour this morning, after spending a pleasant evening in town. I brewed coffee and enjoyed a simple breakfast before reading the newspaper and solving today’s very difficult L.A. Times crossword puzzle. I returned some phone calls and took care of correspondence, and now it’s time for lunch.

My left hand is feeling and looking much better today, which is encouraging. I’m still not able to swim or lift weight, those will have to wait until next week. But I should be able to get some things done outside, like trimming shrubs. It’s hotter than hell here today, probably 94 degrees F if you’re not in shade,but I am so restless right now I’m willing to endure the heat just to get active.

By the way, if the guy to the left here wereΒ my boyfriend, he’d never wear a shirt at home. Aye-yi-yi, what a babe. I wonder what his name is? Anyone know?

All right, everyone, I hope you enjoy the photos I posted here, and wherever you might be today, I hope you’re doing well. And keep on smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

More shirtless guys; Martin’s headed into the city again ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Oh, the beauty of lean young men walking around without a shirt on. Maybe we should pass a law prohibiting shirts on all guys under 25 years old, at least in the warm months. Think how nice that would be. πŸ˜‰

Does anyone know who the model to the left here is? At first, I thought he was Brazilian fashion model Francisco Lachowski, but that’s not him. Anyway, he has an amazing torso. I like his stringy muscles and tousled hair. I wonder if he has a boyfriend?

It’s been a rather frustrating day for me. There’s still so much I can’t do with my left hand because it hasn’t fully healed, even though the stitches are out. No gym and no swimming. And it was too hot and humid today for running or walking on the beach.

I ran a couple of errands during mid-afternoon–wine market and supermarket–and then came back home. I got a few things done around the house and watered some plants, that’s about it.

By the way, do you find the guy to the left here as enchanting as I do? What’s not to like about him. Great muscles, nice skin and hair, and a lovely smile. Definitely boyfriend material. πŸ˜‰

I’m just out of the shower and sipping on a cold beer at my desktop computer. Outside, the temperature is still close to ninety, but I’m staying cool indoors.

In about thirty minutes, I will climb into my Honda Element and cruise into the city toΒ  enjoy my evening with my oldest friend. Like always, we will drink a few beers and chat. Then we’ll dine on takeout, probably form a Mexican place tonight. It’s a weekly ritual I always enjoy. Old friends are the best, I think. πŸ™‚ Have a nice Thursday night, friends.

Shirtless and sexy; easy Thursday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

You know, some guys just aren’t made to wear a shirt. Why cover up all those sleek muscles and all that smooth skin. I mean, have a look at the guy to the left here. He’s just my type–fair-skinned, dark hair, and slender, with just the right amount of muscle. If he were my boyfriend he would never wear a shirt at home. (“I’m home, Devin. Ditch your shirt, pronto.”

After a very enjoyable evening yesterday–both dinner and the movie were excellent–I came home feeling restless, and ended up reading until one this morning. Then I didn’t wake up until eleven AM. πŸ™

Oh, well, I’ve had a very busy week, what with picking up my boat and getting it back in the water, and then getting my stitches taken out yesterday. My evenings have been busy, too, so I haven’t had much time to relax.

Oh, and do you think our friend to the left here looks good in his swim trunks and nothing else? And why is his left hand resting between on his crotch? Is he covering something up?

Anyway, I have some errands to run in just a few minutes. I want to walk three miles on the beach when I get back, and I’ve already completed all my housework. Since today is Thursday, around 5:30 PM I will drive into the city to spend the evening with my oldest friend. Because of my hand, I wasn’t able to visit him the past two weeks, and it’ll be nice to return to our routines.

Have a nice Thursday, everyone. πŸ™‚

Oh, Daddy ….


Hi, friends and readers:

Well, it’s a fact many young gay men prefer the company of an older man; I speak from experience. I’ve been in a few relationships like that, and both parties tend to enjoy their sexual tastes in private. Everybody wins, right?

I have a 21-year old flying in from Dallas for Labor Day weekend–we’re splitting the airfare–and I suspect he will enjoy our time together as much as I will. πŸ˜‰ He’s a sweet boy and entirely responsible, has a job, a car, and an education. What more could I ask for?

Another guy and his camera ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you enjoyed this morning’s photo posts, then I know you’ll enjoy the one to the left. Again, he’s kind of slender, but what’s wrong with that? And he’s soΒ cute.Β I could spend a whole weekend with him, especially if all he wore were those plaid boxers. πŸ˜‰

It’s been a good day. I got my stitches out, and the procedure wasn’t too painful. My surgeon said I had healed nicely, but I have to wait one more week before I can swim. He did say I can jog, and I thought about doing that this afternoon, but it’s too darned hot here, so I walked three miles on the beach instead. Not many people were down there, and a nice breeze blew, so I enjoyed myself.

Now I am freshly showered and ready for a fun evening with my friend. The restaurant we’re having dinner at is supposed to be quite nice and it’s right next to the movie complex where our film is showing. What could be better?

Have a nice Wednesday night, friends. πŸ™‚

Sexy guys and their cameras; busy day ahead for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers: Selfies can be stupid and selfies can be boring, but once in a while I find a few I consider…interesting, like the ones I am posting here this morning. I mean, check out Mr. Bare Butt to the left here. Not only does he have a pair of amazing ass cheeks, but he’s cute as hell and has a lovely smile. I’ll bet he’d be a lot of fun to spend an entire day with. I wonder what his name is and where he lives. I’m guessing he’s…Bryce from Kansas City, MO. He attends community college and works part time as an exotic dancer at gay clubs and bachelorette parties.

Wouldn’t you like to see Bryce dance in a g-string? Of course you would. πŸ˜‰

I’m up early this morning because, in just about twenty minutes I must drive to west Tampa to have the stitches taken out of my hand. It has been 15 days since my surgery and I will be so glad to put the stitches and bandages behind me. Hopefully, the doctor will tell me I can jog, swim laps and lift weights again.

I’ll probably get home from the doctor’s a little past noon, and depending on what the doctor says, I’ll either go for a jog or take a three-mile walk on the beach, followed by a swim in the Gulf.

Okay, I know the guy to the left is a bit skinny, but I like slender boys, plus he’s super cute, just my type.

As a way of saying thanks to me friend who helped me with my boat yesterday, I am taking us out for a nice dinner tonight, followed by an IMAX movie,Β Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,Β a period piece set in 1969, the year I graduated from high school. A lot happened that year, and I’m eager to see if the producer and director got things right.

Okay, everyone, I need to get ready fro my drive to Tampa, so I will close this post by wishing al of you a very pleasant Wednesday, wherever you might be.

Boys wearing backpacks; long day for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Thre’s something quite sexy about a young man who is shirtless and wearing a backpack, but I don’t know why. I guess he feels like he’s fully clothed when, in reality, you can see all of his torso and enjoy the view. πŸ˜‰ See the guy to the left here? I could follow him around all day, and I love the way sunlight is playing on his long and wavy hair. Just beautiful ….

Yes, I am posting late today, and that’s because I spent the entire day on the road, dealing with the powerboat I use up at my fishing camp. A good friend rode up to the Suzuki dealer with me to retrieve the boat after it was serviced. Then we trailered it to the marina where I keep it, and put it back into my covered wet slip. Then we returned my trailer to where I store it.

Thankfully, we had good weather and everything went smoothly. We had lunch at Subway, then drove to my friend’s townhouse in Tampa, one he rents out. We took care of a minor issue he needed to deal with there, then I dropped him off at home before returning to my island home in a torrential rainstorm.

Now I am relaxing withΒ  cold beer before I climb into the shower. And I don’t mind telling you, I amΒ tired.Β I woke at five this morning and never really got back to sleep, and I know after dinner tonight, I will climb into bed with my Red Cloud book.

Oh, by the way, do you find the guy in the lower photo as sexy as I do? Amazing skin and hair, and his eyes …. Oh, and that’s one crazy cowlick on the crown of his head.

All right, everyone, I’m jumping in the shower before I get my dinner in the oven. Have a fine Tuesday night, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

Another beautiful guy in black-and-white; quiet night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since I’ve declared to day as “black-and-white Monday, I’m posting another of my favorites here this evening. The lad has an absolutely amazing rear-end, the kind I’d love to spend hours feeling and admiring as a prelude to…you know. πŸ˜‰

It’s been an uneventful day. I edited my friend’s book for a couple of hours. I saw my primary care doctor in the early afternoon, and he’s ordered more lab tests so we can figure out why I am sleeping so much. He thinks it may be a low testosterone problem, but the next blood test will determine whether it is. Hey, a little boost in the “T” department would not be a bad thing, now would it?

I’m taking it easy this evening, as I have to rise fairly early tomorrow. A friend is helping me trailer my boat from the Suzuki dealer back to the marina where I keep it as transportation to my fishing camp. It’ll be all all-day affair, and a bit of a pain, but we’ll have some fun along the way, and then we’ll dine at a nice restaurant tomorrow night.

Have a great Monday evening, friends.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; the sun is finally shining ….

Hi, friends and readers:

In my view, you can’t beat quality black-and-white photography, particularly when the photo’s subject is a handsome young man, like the guy to the left here. Doesn’t he look great in his white Hilfiger briefs? He reminds me of a fraternity brother of mine who used to parade around the frat house in his whitey tighties. Howard, where are you today?

Around 10:30 last night, I climbed into bed with my Red Cloud book and read for a half-hour before drifting into dreamland, and I didn’t wake up until 8:30 this morning.

For the first time in about a week, the sun is shining on my island. We’ve had so much rain lately the sky has been uniformly gray, and after I checked the weather radar, it looks like we’re in for a good drenching again this afternoon. Oh, well ….

Now, have a look at our friend to the left here. Yeah, he’s a little on the skinny side, but oh so sexy, and I love the way he is posed for the photo. I like the expression on his face too.

Well, my hand is feeling a lot better than it did a few days ago. I get my stitches out Wednesday in west Tampa, and then we’ll see just how usable the hand will be. I have not been to the gym, nor have a swum laps, in about three weeks. I haven’t been jogging either, and I am going stir-crazy. Hopefully, I’ll get back into my exercise regimen in another week or so.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing you all a mirthful Monday, wherever you might be.

Another guy sleeping. You can’t beat good friends, can you?

Hi, friends and readers:

In keeping with today’s “sleeping guys” theme, I am posting one more this evening. How’d you like to snuggle up to him under the sheets?

I just returned home from a lovely dinner party attended by seven adults and three children. The conversation flowed easily and so did the wine. The food was excellent and we had so many laughs. I don’t get to see these folks very often, but it felt as though we’d all been together recently. That’s the sign of good friends, I think.

I hope to host my neighbor/friend here for a drink tonight since it’s his birthday. Besides that, I will probably watch a Netflix series for an hour and then I’ll crawl into bed with a book. By 10:30 I will be snoozing like our friend with the furry crack in tonight’s photo post. πŸ˜‰

Have a nice Sunday night, friends.
