Beautiful Gavin Casalegno; sunny and cool on the island today ….

Hi, friends and readers:

The guy you see in today’s photo posts is named Gavin Casalegno. I don’t know the first thing about him, but I presume he’s either an actor or a fashion model. In any case, I think he’s one of the hottest young men I’ve seen in a long while, maybe even sexier than Francisco Lachowski, 😉

I spent a very pleasant couple of hours sharing drinks and seafood dinners with three good friends. We had some laughs and shared stories of our recent activities, and the time just flew by. I came home and lit my fireplace. Then I spent a little time in my easy chair, enjoying my Christmas tree and decorations.

I rose at nine this morning, and after a quick breakfast I spent a couple of hours writing new material for my novel-in-progress. One of my main characters contracts a disease called Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of cancer mostly seen in young adults. I’m at the point in the book where he undergoes chemotherapy and radiation treatment, and it’s tough stuff to write about, but necessary. I’ve done all my research to be sure I get things right, so I am ready.

Outside it’s sunny and fairly still, but the temperature’s in the mid-50’s, which is pretty darned chilly for central Florida. After lunch, I plan to take a three-mile walk, here on the island, and then, if the wind’s not blowing too hard, I’ll take a two-mile run around four PM. Since today is Thursday, I will spend my evening in the city with my oldest friend, We’ll drink a few beers and order takeout for our dinner, always fun.

Have a nice Thursday, friends.
