Another boy and a swimming pool; quiet night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Well, if you liked the photos I posted here this morning, the I know you’ll like the one to the left. How’d you like to spend a few hours poolside with him? He looks like he’s enjoying that frozen cocktail, doesn’t he? I’ll bet if you took him up to your hotel room, he’d be a wild one. 😉

I had a great writing session this morning, and an excellent workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA. I left there feeling relaxed and ready for the weekend.

I had a 70-foot private sidewalk on my property that was falling apart. It was 77 years old and needed replaced, and this afternoon a concrete contractor sent a crew out here to tear out the old sidewalks and build the forms for a new sidewalk. They will pour the concrete Saturday morning, and presto, I’ll have a new, far more appealing and safer sidewalk.

It’s been a very busy week for me, what with being sick Tuesday and multiple appointments. So, I am ready for a quiet evening at home tonight. I’ll drink a few beers and prepare a tasty pasta dish with chicken strips and lots of veggies.  Yummy ….

Have a nice Friday evening, friends.

Hot boys and swimming pools; easy Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Here in central Florida, we love our swimming pools because it’s so stinking hot here six months out of the year. A pool cools us off and also provides exercise for those who want it. And, of course, depending on the pool, sometimes a handsome young man or two will  be lounging on the pool deck wearing nothing other than a swimsuit that clings to his lovely body like a second skin. I mean, wouldn’t you like to spend an afternoon poolside with the boy in the upper photo? Aye-yi-yi, what a babe …. 😉

Well, for the first time in many months, I did not sleep 10 or 11 hours last night and this morning. I woke up at eight AM and got right out of bed, feeling rested and ready for the day ahead. I brewed coffee and enjoyed my breakfast, then I got busy writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress for 2-1/2 hours. I got some serious work done, and now I’m finished for the day.

I have an easy day ahead of me. Right after lunch I’ll  visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming, and then I’ll head home.

The weather on my island has finally cooled off this morning and the humidity has dropped a good deal, a sign our fall is finally arriving. Oh, for joy. Have a nice Friday, everyone.
