Beautiful Tom Daley; another quiet day and night for Martin ….


Hi, friends and readers:

This morning, I posted photos of Gavin Casalegno, and I said I thought he might be the most attractive young man on the planet. But if anyone runs a close second, it’s British Olympic diver Tom Daley, whom you see above. Not only is Tom incredibly beautiful, but he’s such a sweet and decent guy, and he had to courage to come out as gay at the height of his athletic career, knowing he might suffer a lot of disapproval from certain quarters. Good for you, Tom. Your husband’s a lucky man …. 🙂

Well, it’s been another quiet day, here on the island. I’m quite limited by what I can do with my left hand, so I took things easy. I spent a portion of the day editing my friend’s book–it’s a scholarly work about his career as an environmental lawyer, here in Florida. Yeah, it’s a lot of work, as the book’s 450 pages long, but my friend deserves to have it published because he has done so much for the Florida environment during his 40-year career.

I did manage to get to the drug store and supermarket this afternoon, but that was about it as far as any physical activity. My hand’s pretty sore today, and I have to be careful not to bang it against things when I am putzing around the house. Hopefully, it’ll be better in a few days, but I doubt I’ll be able to resume my usual exercise regimen for a couple more weeks.

Have a nice Sunday night, friends.

Beautiful Gavin Casalegno; rainy morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

No matter what your tastes in young men run to, you’ll have to admit Gavin Casalegno, whose photos I’m posting here this morning, has to be one of the most beautiful young men alive today. He has it all–great skin and hair, a lanky frame with just the right amount of muscle, and amazing ice-blue eyes that I find utterly enchanting. I wonder if he has a boyfriend. If not, call me, Gavin. I’m available. 😉

Last night, while I enjoyed my dinner at home, I watched a Netflix rental, Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Men Tell No Tales, and I have to say I found it utterly boring. I am sick of movies loaded up CGI and unrealistic characters. They’re all so formulaic and predictable. I much prefer a quiet movie focusing on believable characters dealing with the everyday problems we face in our lives.

Anyway, I finished the movie, then crawled into bed with a thoroughly satisfying history book about the Sioux war chief, Red Cloud, who fought the U.S. Army shortly after the Civil War. Most of the fighting took place in Wyoming and Montana, where I just spent three weeks hiking and visiting places Red Cloud inhabited back then.

Last night, I fell asleep around eleven PM and didn’t wake up until ten this morning.

Last week’s hand surgery has left me a bit listless, though I did manage to pain the baseboards on my front porch yesterday afternoon. Today, a neighbor will help me get my porch swing hung back up, and then my porch will look terrific with its new tile and even a new door mat I bought online.

Outside, it’s been raining on and off all morning, and conditions are terribly steamy. Until I get my stitches taken out on August 21st, I can’t swim or go to the gym, and I’m going a little stir-crazy. But I’m editing a friend’s book right now, and that will keep me busy.

Have a great Sunday, everyone.
