When I was in college and law school I wore my hair long. It grew past my shoulders and I thought it looked pretty good on me. But it was a pain in the butt to take care of, and once I graduated I had it cut short. It has remained that way ever since.
Just the same, I think long hair looks really good on certain guys, like the two who appear in this morning’s photo posts. The boy to the left reminds me of a good friend I had, back in college. His name was Steve and we spent much time together. We stayed in touch our entire lives and saw each other maybe once a month. But sadly, Steve died a few years ago. He didn’t take care of his health and eventually paid the price for it. I miss him. 🙁
I woke around eight this morning, after going to bed pretty early last night. I worked on a novel I’m editing, and then took care of correspondence. I read the morning newspaper and solved the L.A. Times crossword puzzle, and now it’s almost eleven AM.
It’s a beautiful day outside: sunny, still and about 76 degrees F. In just a few minutes I’ll put on my tennis shoes and then I’ll take a three mile walk, here on the island, for a little exercise. I’m not sure if I’ll get to visit the YMCA today because I have seasonal renters coming in today and they haven’t yet told me when they will arrive. 🙁
When I look at the photos I have posted here this morning I’m transported back to my teenage years. I lived in a beach community–the Gulf of Mexico was only steps from my front door–and I spent my summers roaming the beach with my best friend, Curtis. We did everything together back then: surfing, skimboarding, pool-hopping at motels, and playing putter golf at a facility not far from our homes. I was a gay boy while Curtis was straight, but it didn’t matter. We always got along well and accepted each other’s differences. We even roomed together at University of Florida for two years.
I suppose every teenage boy deserves to have a best friend like Curtis, someone to hang with and to share secrets with. But I suspect there are lots of lonely boys out there who don’t have a best friend, and that’s kind of sad to think about.
The past few days have been kind of hectic. I deep into edits on the next novel I have coming out. I had a slew of projects to get done around the house, which are now completed. I had an early morning dental appointment yesterday, and then my handyman was here all afternoon yesterday, performing carpentry work and electrical repairs. I had to get my vacation rental apartment ready for my next guests, which ate up all of my Saturday. Sunday I performed a whole bunch of yard work and indoor housework before I hosted a friend for dinner. So, I am ready for a lazy day today.
Of course I have more editing to do on my novel, and I need to run a few errands this afternoon. I’ll take a two-mile run on the island this afternoon, but that’s about it. It’ll be nice just doing some reading on my back porch, and I don’t have a darn thing planned for my evening, which is fine.
I’m not a huge fan of selfies. Why do I want to see all the hair care products in your bathroom? But occasionally I’ll come across a few selfies I think are worth sharing, and I am posting two of them here this morning.
I mean, check our Mr. Drawstring to the left here. Great athletic body, pretty hair and skin. Definitely boyfriend material …. 😉
I had a really nice evening last night, spending time with my old boyhood friend. The weather was ideal: cool and still. We drank a few beers on my friend’s second floor deck before dining on tasty Greek takeout.
U-m-m-m-m, would anyone like to tell me what’s not to like about the young man to the left here? What a beautiful guy, and check out the bulge in his briefs. Aye-yi-yi ….
When I got home last night, around 9:30, I made myself a drink and spent a little time on my back porch, enjoying the quiet and listening to my patio fountain gurgle. Then I climbed int bed and read for a half-hour before going to sleep. I ended up sleeping until 9:30 this morning, but I woke feeling rested and refreshed. I spent an hour reading the Sunday newspaper and now it’s almost lunchtime.
I don’t have a lot on my plate today, other than taking a three-mile walk on the beach and also taking a two-mile run, here on the island. I’m having a friend over for dinner, and I have a bit of yard work to deal with. That’s it.
A set of rippling abdominal muscles is one of nature’s finest gifts to the lucky young men who sport them. A guy only has defined abs for a short period of time. By the time he turns twenty-five they’ve already disappeared, never to return. So we have to admire a young man’s abs while he has them, and what’s not to like about the guys in today’s photo posts?
After dining out and watching Love, Simon last night I spent a couple of hours on my back porch, sipping wine and listening to my patio fountain gurgle. It was so lovely outside, but then my eyelids grew heavy and I got myself to bed.
I slept until ten AM this morning, and after I brewed coffee and made a quick breakfast I got busy with my initial tasks for the day: taking out the trash and recycling stuff, loading up the dishwasher and making my bed.
My winter tenants departed Friday morning and I have new people form Nova Scotia arriving April 4th, so this afternoon I will do a thorough cleaning next door so the place is fresh for the new folks’ arrival. Yeah, cleaning is never fun but it’s a necessary part of vacation rentals.
Outside it’s overcast and windy. It rained early this morning and everything outdoors is damp. But I actually don’t mind since it will deter all the tourists from coming to my island today. I’m sick of the clogged traffic they cause. 🙁 Have a nice Saturday, friends.
I felt restless this evening and all my friends were either working or already had plans, so I decided to strike out on my own. I drove into downtown St. Petersburg to dine on Spanish tapas and then see a movie I’ve wanted to view for a while, a film titled Love, Simon.
Love, Simon is the story of a high school senior named Simon who’s struggling with his gay sexual orientation and gets publicly outed on his school’s website, much to the surprise of his friends and family. I enjoyed the film, and Nick Robinson, the actor portraying Simon, did a good job. (He’s cute, too.)
Love, Simon is one of two recently-released films focusing on teenage boys confronting their gay sexual orientation. The other was Call Me By Your Name, starring Timothee Chalamet. In the upper photo in this post, both Nick and Timothee appear. Cute guys, eh? And I understand they are both straight.
Good for them …. 🙂
Anyway, I just got home from the movie and it’s only 10:30 PM, so I guess I will stay up for a while. I have a nice bottle of California Sauvignon blanc in the fridge and some good music to listen to, so I’m good. Have a nice Friday night, friends.
You never see many guys wearing beanies in Florida because the weather never gets cold enough to warrant wearing one. But I think a beanie on the right kind of guy is a pretty sexy look.
The guy to the left is the same one featured in the sidebar to the right. If you click on that button you’ll get to see some very sexy video clips of this guy. Yummy ….. 😉
I attended a neighborhood party last night that turned out to be a lot of fun. About twenty people were there and everyone brought food and wine. The party was held outdoors since the weather was so nice, and I had a great time. Afterward, I sat on my back porch and listened to my patio fountain gurgle, a nice way to end the evening.
Things seem terribly quiet here this morning, and there’s a reason for that. My winter tenants left for Washington, DC around seven AM. They had been next door since December first, and I always feel a little sad when they depart. Another couple from Nova Scotia will rent the apartment starting April 4th, and this weekend I’ll do some cleaning over there in preparation for their arrival.
It’s yet another beautiful day, here on the island: sunny, still and about 75 degrees F. In about a half-hour I will prepare my lunch. Then, after I dine, I’ll drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. Tonight I’m thinking about going to see a movie titled Love, Simon. I hear it’s pretty good, and the main character’s a very cute guy. (Hey, cute’s good, right?)
When I was in college I lived in my fraternity house for a year. I shared a room with a boy named John who was from south Florida. John was quite handsome, with an athletic build and shaggy brown hair. He was very immodest, and often took afternoon naps naked while I sat at my desk, enjoying the view. I was all so sexy, and I wonder if John ever suspected how much I enjoyed watching him sleep in his birthday suit. John, where are you today? Do you ever think of me the way I think of you? Do you still take naked naps in the afternoon?
I spent a pleasant evening yesterday. First I shared a bottle of red win with my neighbor and his brother-in-law, who is visiting right now. We sat on my deck, overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway. The sun was shining and the temperature was perfect, around 75 degrees F.
I had two friends who came to my place to sunbathe at the beach. When they came up, we visited a seafood restaurant down the road for a nice meal. The place is open-air and the cutest busboy was working there last night. I couldn’t keep my eyes off him.
It’s another beautiful morning, here on the island. The sun is shining and the temperature’s in the low 70’s. In just a bit I’ll take a three-mile walk for a little exercise.
All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Thursday, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s good for you.
If you follow this site then you know I’m a huge fan of the male rear end. What’s more beautiful than a pair of firm, rounded and smooth butt cheeks? Answer: nothing. 😉
I wonder what’s about to happen to the young man in today’s upper photo? Sex or discipline?
I was up early this morning, around 7:30. I brewed coffee, grabbed the newspaper off the front step, and made myself a quick breakfast. But I didn’t do any writing since I have a ten AM dentist appointment for a routine cleaning.
It’s a good thing I have the appointment because Sunday night one of my molars crumbled when I was eating sunflower seeds. The tooth had been developing cracks during the past few years, so the crumbling did not come as a surprise. I suppose this means I’ll have to spend a thousand dollars for a new crown, but that’s life. You have to take care of your teeth, right.
I’ll stay busy today. Right after lunch I’ll visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. Tonight three friends and I will get together for drinks and dinner out.
All right, everyone, I hope you enjoyed this morning’s butt photos as much as I did. Have a nice Wednesday, and keep on smiling. It’s important. 🙂
This coming Sunday is Easter, which marks the end of the Spring Break season in central Florida. All the lovely college boys will return to their schools to resume classes and deal with the dreary weather up north.
I always have mixed feelings about Spring Break ending. The college boys are wonderful to look at when I walk along the shore at the beach down the street from my house. I mean, check out Mr. 7 Up to the left here. Isn’t he cute? But I won’t miss the insane traffic we’ve had, here on the island, over the past month.
I spent a quiet night at home by myself last night. I did some reading and watched The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC. Then I hit the bed around 10:30 PM. I think I fell asleep in less than five minutes.
Now, have a look at Mr. Sunglasses to the left here. If he asked you to toss that ball back and forth with him would you refuse? Of course you wouldn’t. 😉
It’s a breezy day, here on the island. The sun is shining and the temperature will rise into the mid-70’s by noon. I just finished writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress and in just a few minutes I’ll take a three-mile walk, here on the island, for some exercise. When I return home I’ll make myself a simple lunch and then I run a few errands. I have household bills to pay and a few chores I need to perform before I take a two-mile run around four PM.
This evening I will drive into the city to spend the evening with an old friend. We’ll drink a few beers and buy some takeout for our dinner. We’ll swap stories and have a few laughs. Old friendships are the best.
I’m attracted to fair-skinned guys with dark hair and eyes; that’s my thing. But I know many of you out there are huge fans of young men with blond hair and blue eyes, so I thought I put up a couple of my favorite “beautiful blond guy” photos for your viewing pleasure.
Nice buns on Mr. Bubble Butt to the left here, eh? What do you suppose is going on there?
I didn’t have time to post this morning, so this one’s going up late, I know. Hey, it’s better than no post at all, right?
My IT guy is working very hard to restore this site to its former glory. The disruption of the site over the past ten weeks has damaged by traffic and my book sales, but we’re getting back in the groove now.
By the way, do you find Mr. White T-shirt to the left here as appealing as I do. Beautiful hair, skin and eyes. Definitely boyfriend material.
I had a good workout at the YMCA this afternoon but wasn’t able to swim laps because the pool was too crowded. Oh well, maybe I’ll get to swim later in the week. After the YMCA I hit the supermarket to replenish my food and beverage supplies that got depleted over the weekend. Now my fridge and cupboards are stocked. I am freshly showered and ready for a relaxing evening.
