Guys fast asleep; easy Sunday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

There’s something terribly appealing about walking into a room and finding a young man fast asleep on his bed or on the sofa. He looks so vulnerable, lying there, because his masculine defenses are not engaged. I mean check out the guy in the upper photo here. Who could resist taking a chair and just watching him snooze fr a half-hour or so? Or maybe even longer …. πŸ˜‰

A friend brought a bottle of wine over last night, and we shared it in my living room. We also shared some laughs. After he left, I prepared a nice meal of sauteed chicken strips and veggies over pasta. I watched a Netflix series for a little while, then went to be with my Red Cloud book. I slept through the night like a log and woke up feeling refreshed.

Late this afternoon I am attending a party in honor of a man from Germany and his family. I have known him since he was 16 and an exchange student living with friends. He’s a wonderful guy, very bright and sensitive. I have not seen him in at least five years, and spending time with him today will be a treat. πŸ™‚

Have a nice Sunday, friends.

Beautiful William Franklyn Miller; wet night on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

The young man to the left here is William Franklyn Miller, who, a few years ago, was declared by many to be “the most beautiful boy in the world.” He’s since grown up considerably, and I find him terribly appealing, but I fear William may be suffering from over-exposure. Anyway, I like the photo to the left because it is not a professional pic, just a very natural photo of William. πŸ™‚

Once again, I am spending my evening at home, nursing my sore hand and hoping it’s going to start feeling better over the next couple of days. A friend may bring a bottle of wine over tonight, and if he does I know we will have some laughs and listen to some music.

I spent most of the afternoon editing my friend’s book; I am now about 40% of the way through it. I spent about an hour on the phone earlier, just going over a few things and getting some questions answered. He seems grateful for my efforts, which is all I ask.

Have a nice Saturday night, friends.

The once-beautiful Vince Kowalski; heavy rains on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

The young man you see to the left here is named Vince Kowalski, a model and athlete whom I believe is from Alaska. These photos were taken several years ago, before Vince stupidly defiled his amazing body with multiple tattoos that, in my opinion, make him unappealing.

Oh, well, I prefer to remember Vince as he looked pre-tattoos. Cute guy, eh?

I woke this morning to the sound a thunderous rain pounding on my roof. For a moment I thought I was in the midst of a hurricane, but it was only a storm band rolling over the island from the Gulf. According to the weather radar, this will be going on all day, and thankfully I don’t have to drive any long distances. It wouldn’t be safe in these conditions.

Didn’t Vince look great in his swimsuit? I’ll bet he didn’t have any problem getting dates back then?

My left hand is still pretty sore today, but the surgery incisions seem to be healing well. I still can’t do anything much with the hand other than type, so I’ll do more editing on my friend’s book this afternoon, and maybe I’ll spend some time with my Red Cloud book.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy here, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very pleasant Saturday. I hope the sun is shining wherever you are. And keep a smile on your face like Vince did in the lower photo. It’s important. πŸ™‚

Another “boyfriend in your bed” photo. Rainy evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Okay, have a look at Mr. Blondie to the left here. How’d you like to wake up next to him every morning? It might be fun to shower with him too. πŸ˜‰

It’s been a good day for me. My energy level’s way up from yesterday. I made a trip to the supermarket and got home just in time to beat a storm band rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico. After I put things away, I spent 2-1/2 hours editing my friend’s book, and now I am about one-third of the way through the document. I grabbed a shower with a Ziploc bag on my left hand to keep it dry, and now I’m ready for a relaxing evening.

I have fresh salmon and a sweet potato for my dinner, and I plan to watch a Netflix streaming movie after I dine. Yeah, it’s a tame evening, but my hand’s kind of sore right now and I’m fine with quiet.

Have a great Friday night, friends.

A boyfriend in your bed. What could be better?

Hi, friends and readers:

A boyfriend can be a pain in the ass at times, especially when he’s in a grumpy mood or he’s acting selfish about this or that. But still, there is nothing better than falling asleep in your boyfriend’s arms, or waking up next to him in the morning. Just snuggling under the covers can feel oh-so-good, and it’s what I miss most from my days of having a partner. Oh well, I suppose there’s still a chance I may find another boyfriend. I’m certainly trying, anyway.

This morning, I actually woke up at nine o’clock, feeling refreshed and ready for my day. I brewed coffee, shaved and made my bed. I read the newspaper and solved the daily crossword puzzle. I made phone calls and tended to correspondence, and now it’s close to noon.

In a few minutes, I’ll hop into my Honda Element and head for the supermarket to stock my fridge for the weekend. Then I’ll spend 2-3 hours editing my friend’s book.

Outside, the sky is overcast, the air damp. It rained earlier and will likely rain some more this afternoon, which I am fine with; it keeps things cooler. I don’t have much planned for this evening, but that’s okay. My left hand’s still a bit sore and I still have to keep it bandaged. I’ll fix a simple dinner and watch a movie on Netflix streaming.

Have a nice Friday, everyone.

More lover boys; Martin’s staying home tonight ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Every time I look at the photo to the left it inspires me. You can tell the two young men are very much in love, can’t you? And I love the way the light plays on their bodies. Ah, love …. πŸ™‚

It’s been another frustrating day for me, and if I am sounding whiny, forgive me. Between my sore hand and the fatigue I’ve been experiencing recently, I’m not in the mood to do much. Ordinarily on Thursdays, I visit my best friend at his home in the city. We drink a few beers and dine on takeout. But I am staying home tonight because I’m feeling tired and should not be driving home from my friend’s home after drinking even a few beers. So, I’ll watch a Netflix movie and dine at home.

Now, if only I had a lover boy to snuggle on the love seat with …. πŸ˜‰

All right, everyone, have a wonderful Thursday evening, and if you have a boyfriend, give him a kiss and tell him how much you love him. It’s important. πŸ™‚

A day of lover boys; rain, rain, rain ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I love photos of two guys showing physical affection toward each other. When I was a young man, you never saw this sort of thing. Now I do all the time, and how refreshing is that? Anyway, aren’t the guys in today’s photo posts cute?

Well, last night I ended up hosting a young man for the evening, a guy I met through a gay dating app I have on my phone. He spent the night, and the whole experience was…okay. But he wasn’t much in the conversation department, which I find to be true of so many guys in their twenties. Why is that. Do they spend too much time on social media, instead of interacting with people in person?

Anyway, after he left this morning, I went back to bed and slept for another three hours. As mentioned in previous posts, I’ve been sleeping far too much in recent months, and Monday I will see my doctor about it. We’ll go over my lab results and see what is going on. I’m normally an energetic and physically active person, and it’s all a mystery to me. I’ll trust my doctor to get to the bottom of things, and hopefully return to my normally robust way of living.

It’s raining like crazy, here on the island. This has been going on for several days now, but I don’t mind; it keeps things cooler. Plus the sound of rain on my porch’s tin roof is soothing.

All right, everyone, I have household chores to perform, so I will sign off by wishing all of you a pleasant Thursday, wherever you are right now. And if you have a lover boy, give him a kiss and a hug. He’ll adore you for it.

Another sexy guy in a Speedo; another quiet day and evening for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Well, if you liked this morning’s photo posts then I know you’ll like the one to the left here just as much. Mr. Goggles has an amazing body and the suit suits shows it off to perfection. Can you believe those guys in the background aren’t even looking at him? If I were at that swim meet, I wouldn’t look at anything else. πŸ˜‰

I spent another quiet day at home, editing my friend’s book. I read my Red Cloud book for a while, and made a run to the wine market to replenish my supply. And I did theΒ N.Y. TimesΒ crossword puzzle. I’m not suited to this sedentary lifestyle and I sure hope I will be back to a somewhat normal life within the next week. I’m going stir-crazy, but there is nothing I can do about it. πŸ™

It’s almost six PM now, and I just opened my second beer of the evening. After I shower, I’ll see if my friend/neighbor wants to share a bottle of red wine with me while my dinner bakes in the oven.Β Have a nice Wednesday night, friends.

Hot guys in blue Speedos; another gloomy day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Few garments can flatter a handsome young man’s body better than a Speedo-style swimsuit. The suit leaves little to the imagination, just the tiniest bit. Of course, a guy needs to feel self-confident in order to wear one, and that’s why you will almost never see one in the U.S. Guys in this country are simply too insecure about their bodies and their masculinity, and what a shame. Anyway, I think the young men in today’s photo posts look great in their suits. Don’t you? πŸ˜‰

I went to be early last night, and ended up sleeping over twelve hours before I finally rose to start my day. Something is definitely going on with me, and hopefully I will find out what when I see my doctor next Monday afternoon.

In the meantime, I continue recover from my hand surgery. The incision looks healthy and my pain is slowly subsiding. I change my dressings each day and keep my ace bandage clean. (You can call me Nurse Delacroix.)

It was raining pretty hard when I rose this morning, and though the downpour has stopped now, it’s still gloomy outside. Because of my hand situation, I can’t do much, but I will visit the wine market after lunch, and I’ll do more editing on my friend’s book, a slow-going task, but one I intend to complete.

My house and yard are in order and I’ve taken care of all my correspondence, so everything is up to date. Good for me, eh?

All right, everyone, I need to fix my lunch, so I will close this post by wishing all of you an amazing Wednesday, wherever you might be located today. And keep on smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

Another guy on a BMX bike; productive day for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Here’s another one of my favorite BMX bicycle photos I want to share with you this evening. I find the picture fascinating. It’s hard to tell how old the boy is because although his face looks young, he has a muscular body. He could be fifteen or he could be eighteen. Anyway, it looks like he’s riding his bike in a fairly remote place. Maybe he lives with his family on a farm or ranch in the western U.S.? And what do you suppose he’s looking at? Like all good photos, it asks more questions than it answers.

Despite my mostly useless left hand, I got a lot done on editing my friend’s scholarly book, and I am close to 25% through it after spending several hours on it today. It’s a slow-moving process, as this is a 450-page document, all single-spaced, but I’m working through it, and I know I will feel good when I finish, probably in about ten days if I keep at it.

I’m having a friend over to share a bottle of wine in just a little bit, and then I will get my dinner going–ground sirloin steak, half a baked potato, and frozen veggies. It may not sound too exciting, but I’m looking forward to it, and maybe I will finish watching the boring French Netflix movie I started last night.

Have a nice Tuesday evening, friends.
