Sex guys in white towels; chilly morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

My sophomore year at University of Florida, I lived in my fraternity house with about 40 other guys my age, most of them pretty attractive. The bathrooms were down the hall from my room, with gang showers, so we all bathed without privacy, which was fine with me. Hell, I looked forward to showering, and I confess I often timed my showers to coincide with some of the sexier guys’ shower times. (Yeah, I was a horny little pervert. So what?)

Anyway, guys were always cruising down the hallway toward the bathroom wearing nothing but a white bath towel wrapped around their waists, and toting a shaving kit. The whole thing was pretty hot.

In honor of my fraternity house memories, I’m putting up photos of sexy guys wearing white towels for your viewing pleasure. I especially like the upper photo because the guy is so beautiful: great hair and skin, lean torso, and a handsome face. He has it all, and he looks great in that towel, doesn’t he?

I rose at nine this morning, and after a quick breakfast I hit the keyboard with a vengeance. I wrote for 2-1/2 hours at a furious clip, I don’t know why. But I’m pleased with the quality of the writing as well as the quantity.

By the way, how would you like to hare a room in the fraternity house with Mr. Muscles to the left here? Aye-yi-yi, what a gorgeous guy. 😉

A cold front entered central Florida last night, and  right now it’s 60 degrees F outside, which is fine with me because I have a ton of yard work to perform today, and the cool, dry weather will make it easier to do. I need to put down several bags of mulch in my plant beds, and also plant two hibiscus shrubs I bought Tuesday, to replace plants that didn’t thrive in my patio. These type chores involve a lot of bending and lifting, but it’s good exercise for me.

Since today is Thursday, this evening I’ll drive into the city to spend a few hours with my best and oldest friend. We’ll down a few beers and dine on takeout. I know he’ll have a blaze going in his fire pit, due to the chilly weather, and I’m looking forward to it all.

Have a great Thursday, friends, wherever you might be today. And keep smiling, it’s important.

Beautiful Timothee Chalamet; quiet night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Is there a gay man alive who doesn’t find actor Timothee Chalamet attractive and utterly charming? I doubt it. After all, he’s excruciatingly cute, and a good actor as well.

As we all know, Timothee had a  lead role in the film Call Me by Your Name, a wonderful production about a friendship that morphs into love, and all the complications that come with those situations. I felt so sorry for Timothee’s character, Elio, at the end of the film. The poor boy was heartbroken, and we have all been there, haven’t we?

I had a great workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA, and a frustrating visit to Home Depot where I couldn’t buy what I wanted to save my life, all because their software program for tracking inventory is screwed up. Gr-r-r-r-r …. 🙁

Anyway, I came across some wonderful film clips from Call Me by Your Name that I know all of you will enjoy viewing. I know I did. Here’s the link:

Enjoy, friends, and have a nice Wednesday night.

Hot guys in backward ball caps; yet another perfect morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I love the look of a backward ball cap on a young man, especially if he’s not wearing much else. I mean, look at this guy to the left. How would you like to have him wandering around your condo all day long? Or the two of you could visit that swimming pool down at ground level. I’ll be he’d look good with water streaming down his torso. 😉

I spent a very nice evening yesterday with one of my best friends, celebrating his birthday with dinner and a movie, but the film was long and I didn’t even get home till around 10:30 PM. I was restless as hell, so I drank some wine and traded messages with a friend in South America, and next thing I knew the time was one AM. 🙁

See the photo to the left. It reminds me of many canoe trips I have taken throughout central Florida. Our rivers are mostly shallow, and fun to wade in. I would certainly be happy to spend a weekend paddling with Mr. Football to the left here, especially if we shared a tent at night. 😉

Because I stayed up so late, I didn’t get up when my alarm went off at eight this morning, and then I slept until 8:45, which threw off my writing schedule, which I always detest. I like to be at the keyboard at nine AM sharp. But I got some things done anyway, and now it’s close to eleven AM. I’ll take a break and solve today’s crossword puzzle, then I’ll read the newspaper and fix my lunch. Since this is a Wednesday, right after I dine I will drive into the city for a workout and lap-swimming session at the YMCA.

It’s another perfect winter day here in central Florida: sunny, a light breeze, and 70 degrees F. Who could ask for more? Have a nice Wednesday, everyone.

The exhibitionist cyclist; Martin’s off to the city for the evening ….

Hi, friends and readers:

The photo to the left is one of my all-time favorites because it’s both sexy and funny. I have not posted it in a long time, so I thought I would tonight, to give everyone a laugh. Did this kid’s mother see him dressed like that before he left the house for his bike race? Aye-yi-yi, I’ll bet he drew a lot of stares. 😉

I’ve had a thoroughly productive day and accomplished everything I wanted to from the moment I got out of bed ’til just now, when I stepped out of the shower. I bought new my screen door, my mulch and the shrubs I intend to plant on my patio. I visited the supermarket and the bank, and then I ran two miles, here on the island. The weather was so nice I barely broke a sweat.

In about 40 minutes, I will drive into the city again, this time to spend the evening with one of my best friends. It’s his birthday today, and I’ll buy his dinner and pay for his movie ticket. Hell, I’ll even buy the popcorn and sodas. 🙂 Okay, the movie he chose would not be my first choice (Aquaman) but what the heck, it’s his birthday.

Have a nice Tuesday night, friends.

Guys in sleep pants; another gorgeous day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

A friend who used to live up north informed my it’s very common for young me to wear “sleep pants” to bed during winter, to keep themselves warm. I’ve never owned a pair myself, but I guess they are made from flannel, and they sure look comfy. They also look pretty darned sexy on the guys in today’s photo posts.

I especially like the guy to the left here. Sure he’s skinny, but I kind of like skinny, as long as a guy has broad shoulders and a bit of muscle like he does. I like his shaggy, tousled hair, too. I’ll bet he just got out of bed, and I wonder if the guy who took the photo shared the mattress with him?

I went to bed relatively early last night, around ten PM. I read for about 45 minutes before switching off the nightstand lamp, and then I drifted into dreamland. I was up around 7:30 this morning, feeling refreshed, and then I tackled my novel-in-progress for two hours, writing new material.

Now it’s around eleven AM, and I have a busy day ahead of me. As soon as I finish this post, I will take a three-mile walk, here on the island. After lunch, I will drive into town to meet my handyman at Home Depot, where I will purchase a new screened door for my front porch. I’ll also buy mulch for the beds I cleaned up over the weekend. On the way home I’ll hit the bank and supermarket. I have correspondence to catch up on, and phone calls to make, and then I’ll take a two-mile run.

Outside it’s another perfect winter day: sunny, still, and about 70 degrees F. I’m looking forward to my walk and also my run. Tonight, I’ll return to the city to have dinner with a friend, and then we’ll see a movie in the theater. It’s should be fun.

Have a nice Tuesday, my friends.

One more shirtless guy; quiet evening on the island for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since it’s “shirtless day” on my site, I thought I’d put up one more of my favorites for your enjoyment this evening. He’s cute, isn’t he? I wonder if he has a boyfriend?

I had a great workout at the YMCA this afternoon, but the pool was too crowded for me to swim laps. So I came home and took a three-mile walk, here on the island. The day was so beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Afterward, I drank two beers up on my observation deck, watching sailboats cruise by on the Intracoastal Waterway. Now I’m down in the house and getting ready for a quiet evening. I have leftovers from the barbecue place for my dinner, and a Netflix movie to watch, so I am good. Screw the NCAA championship game tonight. Who cares about Alabama and Clemson? Not me ….

All right, everyone, have a nice Monday evening, and if you’re as cute as the guy in this post, you really should take your shirt off. 🙂

Shirtless and sexy; another perfect morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Some gys look so sexy when they don’t wear a shirt, and the two in today’s photo posts fall into that category. I mean, look at Mr. Shaggy Hair to the left here. Great skin and hair, and just the right amount of muscle on him. Nice smile, too. Definitely boyfriend material. I wonder if he’d give me a ride in the Mustang if I promised to give him another kind of ride?  😉

I stayed up later than I should have last night, just sitting by the fireplace and listening to music. As a result, I slept in late this morning, so it hasn’t been the most productive on for me. 🙁

Oh, well, it’s okay. I have a load of laundry going in the washing machine, my kitchen is sparkling, and I just enjoyed a tasty breakfast. Outside, it’s another perfect winter day in Florida: sunny, still and about 72 degrees. Amazing ….

Now, this photo to the left was taken in Germany, I am certain, because the guy in the picture is wearing a garment called lahtzhosen, a type of overalls quite common in Germany. I could watch him work all day long. I’ll bet all the gay men in the area were glued to their windows. 🙂

Today will be a typical Monday for me. I’ll do some editing on the material I wrote the past two mornings. Then, right after lunch, I will drive into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. Now that the kiddies are back in school, I shouldn’t have a problem getting a lap lane. Then I’ll come home and do some more editing before fixing my dinner. I know the NCAA national championship game is on TV tonight, but I don’t care about either team playing, so I doubt I’ll watch.

Have a nice Monday, friends.

Hot guys and their cameras; another perfect morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m not a huge fan of bathroom selfies. I mean, I don’t want to see your parents’ monogrammed bath towels or your hair care products. But some selfies are simply too delicious to ignore.

Have a look at Mr. Backward Ball Cap to the left. He’s cute, of course, but that body. He has amazing muscles in his shoulder and arms, and beautifully smooth skin. I wonder what his name is and where he lives. I’m guessing he’s Kolton from Redondo Beach, CA. He goes to the gym five days a week and has a girlfriend, but he meets guys on the down low through Grinder. (It happens more than you think, believe me.)

I spent a delightful evening last night, beginning with a building a blaze in my fire pit, which you see to the left here. I drank a few beers and listened to music, then after the fire died, I went inside for a warm shower.

I warmed up leftovers and made a fruit salad for my dinner, then watched the Dallas/Seattle playoff game on TV. I was disappointed that Seattle lost, as I think Russell Wilson is the NFL’s classiest player. (He’s cute too.) Anyway, I was in bed with a book as soon as the game ended.

See the guy to the left here? Well, before Tumblr removed all X-rated material from their site, I had a link to several selfies he took of himself where he showed off his private equipment. Alas, those photos are no longer available. 🙁

This morning, I was up at nine and banging away at the keyboard for a couple of hours, writing new material for my novel-in-progress. Now it’s noon and there’s a gorgeous day waiting for my outside. The sun’s shining, it’s 71 degrees F, and the wind has ceased blowing. As soon as I finish eating lunch, I’ll be out the door for a three-mile walk, so I can enjoy this beautiful weather.

There are two more NFL playoff games on TV this afternoon, but I’d rather finish some yard work I started yesterday. Why sit indoors when the day outside is do perfect? A friend I’ve known since childhood will join me for drinks and dinner tonight. I haven’t seen him in at least six weeks, and it’ll be good to get together.

Have a nice Sunday, friends.

One more triathlete; wonderful day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Well, if you’re into lean guys, I guess triathletes are your thing. They certainly are mine. I’d elope with the skinny guy to the left in a heartbeat. 😉

I’ve had the most wonderful day, one some people might consider boring, but I didn’t. Right after lunch, I took a three-mile walk in the cool breeze and sunshine. Then I came home and spent 3-1/2 hours working in my yard. It hardly seemed like work because the weather was perfect–no heat, no sweating, no insects. Now my patios look well-groomed and I am feeling a bit tired.

Around 5 PM, I built a blaze in my fire pit and listened to music on my Bluetooth speaker while the lumber crackled. Then I came inside and grabbed a shower. I just watched Indy beat Houston, which I was hoping for since I like Andrew Luck. (He knows how to read and do long division, since he attended Stanford.)

In just a little bit I will put together a fresh fruit salad and zap some leftover pizza in the microwave. Then I’ll have a nice meal while watching the second wild card game, a nice end to a perfect day. 🙂

Sexy triathletes; beautiful day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Ever attended a triathlon? Well, I have and I can tell you some of the sights you’ll see are nothing short of amazing, especially right after the half-mile swim when the guys come out of the water wearing Speedo swimsuits with water streaming down their limbs.

Me, I’d like to be the guy who writes numbers on the participants’ arms and legs with a Sharpie. 😉

I spent a great evening with my friends, drinking a few craft beers and dining on high-end barbecue at a new place downtown that’s getting rave reviews, and for good reason. The food was outstanding. I had brisket and smoked turkey, along with baked beans and Cole slaw. The meal was amazing and I had plenty of leftovers to take home. 🙂

I didn’t stay up to long after I got home, but for some reason I slept really late today, till almost 9:30 AM, which disrupted my writing routine. And just as I sat down to write, the power went out in my area, and stayed off until well past eleven. 🙁 That meant I had to reset my router and then reset all my digital clocks in the house, but now everything’s back to normal.

It’s a picture perfect day, here on the island: sunny, with a light breeze, and a temperature of 72 degrees F. Right after lunch, I plant to take a three-mile walk to enjoy the weather, and then I’ll have some yard work to attend to.

I don’t have much planned for the rest of my day, other than watching some NFL playoff action and building a blaze in my patio fire pit. I want to enjoy this cool weather while we have it.

All right, everyone, I need to fix my lunch, and then take my walk, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Saturday, wherever you might be spending it. And keep smiling, it’s important.
