Hot boys at the beach; nice Friday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

While most of the country is shivering during November, it’s still beach weather in Florida, and on the weekends my island gets mobbed by college kids running about in swimsuits and little else. It makes for interesting views when I take a three-mile walk at the shore every Saturday and Sunday.

Now, have a look at our slender friend to the left here. In my book, he’s close to perfect: broad shoulders, slim torso, smooth skin, bushy hair, and a great smile. Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

Yesterday, I spent a quiet night at home by myself, the first evening I’d spent alone in a week. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the friends I spent time with during the last week, but I needed some alone time yesterday. It felt good.

It’s a gloomy morning, here on the island. The sky is cloudy, there’s a smell of rain in the air, and a moderate breeze is blowing. It’s supposed to be this way for the next several days, which I am fine with. I grew so tired of the heat and humidity we endured from May until a week ago. I am looking forward to using my firepit this weekend for sure.

In just a little while, I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. I’ll hit the supermarket on my way home, and after a shower, I will return to the city to spend the evening with my best friend.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Friday, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

Sexy guys with hangovers; quiet morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I couldn’t tell you the last time I suffered a hangover from drinking too much alcohol. I try to moderate my drinking. But in my youth, I c an recall some absolutely wicked hangovers, usually after a Saturday of all-day drinking. I’d stare into my bathroom mirror while my head throbbed and say, “Why?”

Oh, well, we all have to learn our lessons in life, don’t we? And I’d say the guys in this morning’s photo posts are wondering what drove them to drink excessively the night before. Time to grab the Tylenol and brew a pot of coffee, guys. πŸ™‚

Well, my German guests departed very early this morning, and I will miss their company. But I didn’t get much writing done while they were here, and it’s time I got back to the business of doing so. I can’t write efficiently when others are stirring in my household, I need solitude, and now I have it again.

Today will be uneventful for me. I have a service appointment for my refrigerator to have a minor repair performed, so I will pretty much be tied down until that is taken care of. If the appointment is concluded by four PM, I will take a two-mile run, here on the island, and then spend the evening with my oldest and best friend. If the appointment ends later than four PM, I’ll stay home this evening instead.

All right, friends, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very pleasant Thursday. And if you have a hangover this morning, you have my sympathies.

An amazing selfie ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Most selfies are mundane, but once in a while I come across one that steals my breath, and the photo to the left is one of those. The young man has an amazing body, an angelic face, and cute tousled hair. His pants are riding tantalizing low on his hips, as if he’s teasing viewers.

I wonder where he lives and what his name is?

I just returned from a visit to the YMCA, where I had a great workout and lap-swimming session, and after a warm shower, I left feeling relaxed and healthy. Oh, how I love being fit.

Tonight is the last night my German guests will spend next door before they leave for Orlando. We’re going to have a few drinks before buying a rotisserie chicken and some sides at our island’s supermarket. We’ll enjoy a bottle of white wine with the meal, and then visit my timeshare to soak in the hot tub.

Have a nice Wednesday night, friends.

When Daddy gets home from work, make him happy ….


Hi, friends and readers:

It’s no secret that, in gay subculture, intragenerational relationships between younger gay men and older gay men are increasingly seen. A significant percentage of young gay men simply don’t care for guys their own age. They prefer older, more mature and grounded men. And what’s wrong with that? The boy in the video clip I’ve posted certainly seems glad his daddy is home from work, doesn’t he? πŸ˜‰

This morning, I woke to discover the temperature outside was 58 degrees F, the coolest since last March, and certainly a welcome relief from the endless Florida heat. I’m actually wearing track pants instead of shorts while I write these words, and how good it feels.

My German guests and I took a sunset sailboat cruise yesterday that was just about perfect. The weather was pleasant, we saw tons of dolphins, and the sunset was pretty. We ordered a pizza and made a salad, and enjoyed a bottle of wine afterward. I was in bed by ten PM, and asleep not long afterward, too tired to even read.

Today, my guests will visit a museum in downtown St. Petersburg, while I will visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. Tonight is my guests’ last night before they move on to Orlando.

Have a nice Wednesday, friends.

A boyfriend in your bed. What could be better?

Hi, friends and readers:

Boyfriends can be a pain in the ass. They cheat on you, lie to you, and don’t even pick up after themselves. And their parents can be annoying. But still… There’s nothing like waking up in the morning and snuggling underΒ  the covers with your beautiful, albeit flawed, boyfriend.

Well, my barbecue dinner party last night turned out great. Yours truly grilled perfect cheeseburgers over charcoal. I provided all the condiments and trimmings everyone needed, and also a nice pot of baked beans as a side. Oh, and plenty of wine. πŸ™‚

It’s another beautiful fall day, here on the island. My German guests and I will take a long walk on the beach after lunch. I have to visit the wine market to restock my supply, and then I’ll take a two-mile run. Around 4:30 PM, we will board a sailboat for a sunset cruise that lasts about 2-1/2 hours. It should be a nice experience because the weather is so nice today.

We will get a takeout pizza for our dinner and team it with homemade salad and plenty of wine, and it should be a nice day all around. Have a great Tuesday, my friends. πŸ™‚

Another cute guy with blue eyes; BBQ for dinner tonight ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since we’re focusing on cute guys with blue eyes today, I had to share the photo to the left. I find the young man enchanting, not only his beautiful eyes, but his skin and hair He’s “the whole package”, as they say, and I’m jealous of his boyfriend. πŸ˜‰

I’m just home from the gym, where I had a good workout. But I got a late start andΒ  didn’t have time to swim laps. I had to visit the supermarket to purchase items for tonight’s barbecue gathering with my German friends and my neighbor. I’ll fire up the grille after we spend time on my observation deck, have a drink or two and sharing some laughs.

Outside, it’s so pretty–sunny, cool and dry. The Intracoastal Waterway looks like a mirror with sailboats cruising on its surface. It’s going to be a nice evening for me. I hope yours is as well.

Sexy guys with blue eyes; Martin’s back from his football weekend ….

Hi, friends and readers:

It’s been said that aΒ  young man’s eyes are “the windows to his soul”, and if so, the guys in today’s photo posts must have lovely souls indeed.

Me, I’m into guys with dark hair and eyes, but I can certainly appreciate the seductive quality of blue eyes, whether they are cobalt or ice blue.

Well, I am back home from my football weekend in Gainesville, and what a glorious time it was for me and my two friends. The weather was perfect–cool, sunny and still. Our Airbnb was sweet and it allowed us to walk to campus and the stadium. We tailgated with friends before the game, which was fun. The game was a blowout. The Gators clobbered Vanderbilt, and the crowd was raucous.

After the game, we purchased sushi at a supermarket and partied at our apartment. My great niece, who’s a UF student, came over for a drink and some lively conversation. Then I ended up getting myself a date through my gay dating app, a lovely Asian lad who’s also a UF student. My friends made themselves scarce so my friend and I could have privacy, and it was a great way to end my Saturday.

It’s a beautiful morning, here on the island–sunny and cool, with a light breeze. I spent my morning writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, and now lunchtime is approaching. Right after lunch, I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming.

I have friends from Germany visiting me. They are staying in my vacation rental next door, and I hosted them for dinner and drinks last night. I served fresh grouper that turned out quite well. Tonight, I’m grilling cheeseburgers over charcoal on my patio. It should be fun. πŸ™‚

Have a nice Monday, everyone.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; Martin’s hitting the road ….

Hi, friends and readers:

It’s no secret I am a huge fan of quality black-and-white photography, especially when the subject matter is a handsome young man who is posed in an interesting way. I really like the photo to the left. The model is a beautiful young man with lovely facial features, and I love the expression on his face. He looks…contented.

I slept in a bit late this morning, but that’s okay. I am already packed and ready to take my weekend excursion to Gainesville, FL to attend a Florida Gators game.

The Gators are playing Vanderbilt, in what should be a lop-sided game in favor of UF, but then you never know. But it doesn’t matter, the best part is visiting my old university and checking out all the sexy male students. πŸ˜‰

I am going up there with two of my closest friends, both who are considerably younger than me, but it doesn’t seem to matter. We always have fun together. They are both straight guys and I know they’ll be checking out all the UF girls. We have a sweet Airbnb six blocks from campus, so we can walk to the game, also to the downtown bars and restaurants.

By the way, do you find the photo to the left here as provocative as I do? The guy is sexy as hell, but why si he walking around naked holding a pair of sneakers? I guess we’ll never know, will we?

Anyway, I have a few minor loose ends to tie up before I hit the road, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful weekend, wherever you are spending it.

Sexy Hunter Geurink; pretty morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

The guy you see in this morning’s photo posts is Hunter Geurink,Β  a young man who became famous through his Instagram account. I don’t know what he does for a living, or if he’s in college, but he is, in my opinion, terribly sexy. I wonder if he has a boyfriend?

I spent a pleasant evening yesterday at my friend’s house in the city. The weather was so beautiful and we savored it on his second-floor deck overlooking his leafy yard. We dined on Greek cuisine, and then I drove home. It wasn’t long before I crawled into bed with a book.

This morning, something amazing happened: I got up at eight AM for the first time in many months. If you follow this site, then you know I’ve been sleeping entirely too much each night, sometimes as much as eleven hours, which interferes with my writing and leaves me feeling less than productive. This has gone on since April.

Back in August, my doctor put me on a thyroid medication, and he has twice upped my dosage. I am hoping maybe we have finally hit the right amount for me, and that the long sleeping sessions will finally come to an end. I was able to write a good amount of fresh material for my novel-in-progress this morning. πŸ™‚

It’s a beautiful day, here on the island, sunny and breezy and not too warm. I just walked down to the seawall near my front door, to gaze out over the Intracoastal Waterway, and things looked so pretty, I couldn’t help but smile, sort of like Hunter’s doing in the photo to the left. πŸ™‚

A former German exchange student who lived with me for a year is arriving here Friday afternoon, along with his girlfriend, to spend a week in my vacation rental next door. He and I have remained the best of friends ever since he lived with me, and I’m looking forward to his visit. Today, I’ll buy some food to stock the fridge next door, so they’ll have snacking and breakfast food when they arrive.

Have a nice Thursday, friends. And keep on smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

Another guy in a white towel ….

Hi, friends and readers:

In keeping with today’s “white towel” theme, I’m putting up another photo I really like a lot. He is so damned sexy with his smooth skin, rippling muscles, pretty hair and handsome face. He’s the whole package, and whomever is lucky enough to share a bed with him must be in heaven. πŸ™‚

Well, I wasn’t feeling top notch today, but I did manage to drag my butt into the YMCA and do a complete workout. I skipped lap-swimming, I just wasn’t up for it this afternoon. Instead, I went to the supermarket and bought all the supplies my friends and I will need for our football weekend: beer, wine, tonic water, and a variety of snacking food. We’ll be hosting some folks after the game and I want to be prepared no matter how many people show up.

In about an hour, I will cruise into town to spend the evening with my oldest and best friend. Have a nice Wednesday night, guys. πŸ™‚
