Another cute twink; nice evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since it’s Twink Day on this site, I’m posting one more twink pic this evening, and isn’t he cute? I love his wavy hair and delicate facial features. He’s borderline androgynous, but that’s okay. He’ll be a beautiful man in 2-3 years, won’t he?

I just returned from the beach and showered, after spending 2-1/2 hours down there, enjoying the beauty of nature. My new tent is great, and few people were at the shore. The Gulf water was just the right temperature for bathing, and the overcast sky kept things comfortable. My friend and his girlfriend joined me, and we never ran out of things to talk about. We always end up laughing a lot, which I enjoy like hell.

In just a few minutes I will run down to our island market to buy steaks and red wine, as I’m hosting my friends for dinner tonight. Have a nice Thursday evening, friends. 🙂

Twink Day on Martin’s site; beach day in store ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Ah, twinks. They’re so cute, but you can’t touch them. You can only wonder what they’ll look like when the reach legal age. I love their youthful exuberance and irreverent attitudes. I’ll bet our friend to the left here is one crazy kid. 🙂

A friend came over last night, to share a bottle of wine with me, and then I warmed up leftovers for my dinner. I watched a little TV before climbing into bed with a book, and I was asleep by eleven.

It’s another hot day here, on the island, but I’m not going to let the heat get to me. A good friend is coming out here from the city, around one PM, and we’ll spend the afternoon down at the shore. I recently bought a 10′ X 10′ beach canopy, and we’ll put it up for the first time. I’ll take a three-mile walk for some exercise, and we’ll swim in the Gulf.

This morning, I’m working hard on final revisions to my new novel. I’ve been working on the book for almost a year–it’s a long one–and I am very pleased with the results. It’s a book about a guy learning to deal with personal losses, and his fight to prevent another loss from wrecking his life again. There are both sad and happy events taking place in the main character’s life, a lot of ups and downs. But there’s a satisfying ending, I think.

It’s always unnerving, when the time comes to submit a new book to my publisher. I’m always afraid they won’t like it, but those fears are almost always unfounded. I know this book I’m finishing is well-written and will pique readers’ interests.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a terrific Friday. And keep smiling, it’s important.
