A boyfriend in my bed; wonderful weekend for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I just returned from the Tampa airport, where I dropped off my weekend house guest for his flight back to Kansas City. We kissed one last time while riding the elevator, and then I was on the road, back to my island home.

Not only was this young man extremely cute, but he was also very passionate. We couldn’t seem to get enough of each other. And it felt so nice, waking up next to him Saturday and Sunday mornings.

We dined at home Friday night, then we walked to our neighborhood cafe for breakfast on Saturday. Saturday night, we dined at a new restaurant/hotel only a few blocks from my house, where we had a couple of glasses of wine on the rooftop bar and watched a spectacular sunset. Our meals were excellent, and the ambiance was nice. Then we walked home and got a little passionate before calling it a day.

This afternoon, I drove us to downtown St. Pete for a nice lunch in an farm-to-table restaurant with tasty fare. I drove us to a mall in west Tampa so he could buy an Apple power cord for his laptop.Then It was time for the airport.

Both of us agreed it was a great weekend, and that we’d be stupid not to see each other again. I can truthfully say he’s the first guy I have dated in the past two years I’d consider getting serious with, but we’ll see. I’m grateful for the time we spent together.

Have a great Sunday night, friends.

Best friends, sharing life ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When you are a teenage boy, the most important person in the world, if you are lucky, is your best friend. He’s the guy you can share your deepest secrets with, someone who is always there for you.

When I was in my mid-teens, my best friend was named Curtis. We lived two blocks form each other, and we were inseparable, both at school in our neighborhood. We didn’t have a sexual relationship–I was gay and Curtis was straight–but we always respected each other and relied upon each other.

My high school reunion is a week from today, and Curtis is flying into town with his wife to attend. It’s been about two years since I have seen Curtis, and I’m excited. We’ll have drinks at the reunion, then we’ll visit a nearby restaurant for dinner. We’ll catch up on things and have ourselves some laughs, remembering all the silly thing we did as kids. πŸ™‚

Yesterday, I had a very pleasant evening with my current best friend, who I’ve known since third grade. We drank a few beers and dined on Greek cuisine. But I was tired from my labors at my vacation rental, and I was home by nine PM. I spent some time editing my novel-in-progress before hitting the bed with a book. I was asleep by 10:30, and I slept until 9:30 this morning.

In a couple f hours, I will drive over to Tampa airport, to pick up my little boyfriend who is spending the weekend with me at the beach. It should prove to be an interesting couple of days, as he’s an adventurous lad. πŸ˜‰

All right, everyone, I have a few chores to perform before I drive to Tampa, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Friday. And if you have a best friend you have not seen in a while, give him a call. He’ll love you for it. πŸ™‚

Tom Daley, the world’s sexiest competition diver ….

Hi, friends and readers:

On a day when I’m focused on competition divers, I can’t fail to post a photo of the world’s sexiest competition diver, Great Britain’s Tom Daley. And the great thing about Tom is, he’s an utterly sweet guy who loves his husband Lance unashamedly. Good for you, Tom. We love you. πŸ™‚

Well, I just spent about four hours cleaning my vacation rental next door, and I am exhausted. I’m just not used to being on my feet for that long a period of time. My feet hurt and my back aches, πŸ™

Okay, but the job is done and the apartment looks and smells great, My first seasonal renter arrives Sunday, and now t’s all ready for her. In about 45 minutes, I will drive into the city to spend the evening with my best friend.

Have a nice Thursday night, friends.

Beautiful competition divers; drudgery afternoon for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I have never attended a competition diving meet, although I never miss an opportunity to watch Tom Daley dive during the summer Olympics. πŸ˜‰ But the photos I am posting here this morning make me think I should attend a competition in my area. I mean, look at the young man to the left here. He has beautiful skin and amazing muscles in his legs. What’s not to like?

I stayed up later than usual last night, watching the Rays v. Oakland wild card contest. The Rays kicked the A’s butts, 5-1, and I am so happy for the guys on the team because they deserve to be in the playoffs.

Anyway, by the time I went to sleep, the time was almost one AM, and as a result, I ended up sleeping until 10:30 this morning, which got me off to a slow start on my Thursday.

Now, have a look at the diver to the left here. He’s pretty close to perfection in my book. A Speedo swimsuit never looked quite so good. πŸ™‚

I have a vacation rental apartment on my property, and my first seasonal renter is arriving here Sunday. That means I need to clean the apartment from top to bottom, and I mean everything–window blinds, fan blades, all of it. The place will pretty much remain rented until the end of April, and I am not complaining, but I will probably spend four hours over there this afternoon, getting things just right for the season.

Hey, I’ll put some music on and think pleasant thoughts while I scrub and dust and get things tidy so my renters will feel comfortable. It’s one way I pay my bills, so it’s a must-do today. I have a house guest arriving for the weekend; I pick him up at the Tampa airport tomorrow afternoon, so I have to get this work done today.

Have a nice Thursday, everyone.

Another sexy guy in gym shorts; baseball in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Have a look at the young man to the left here. I think he’s sexy as hell. Great skin and hair, and nice muscles. Plus his eyes have just a hint of cruelty in them, as if he might treat you a little rough in the bedroom. I think I’d be willing to put up with a little abuse, once in a while, if he’d agree to wear those gym shorts and nothing else around the house. πŸ˜‰

I’ve had a busy afternoon. After my appointment in Tampa, I drove directly to the YMCA. I found a shady spot to park in and enjoyed a lunch I’d packed in a small cooler. Then I worked out. Once I left the YMCA, I hit the wine market, the bank and the supermarket. By the time I got home and got everything put away, the time was well past four and I was kind of tired from all my running around. My feet were sore and so were my muscles form my workout, so I made a protein shake and solved a crossword puzzle.

Now it’s close to five PM, and after I shower I’ll have a couple of beers before getting busy on tonight’s dinner–fresh salmon and a sweet potato. Around eight PM, I’ll tune into the Rays Wild Card game.

Go, Rays!

Hot guys in gym shorts; busy day ahead for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Certain guys look incredibly sexy when they are wearing gym shorts but no shirt, like the two in today’s photo posts. I mean, I could play volleyball all day with our friend to the left here. Notice how his shorts allow us to see all the way up to his hip when he raises his leg? Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

I watched a great movie last night about the Watergate scandal whistleblower nicknamed “Deep Throat”. Liam Neeson did a great job in the lead role. Afterward, I called my little boyfriend in Kansas City before going to bed.

I was up early this morning, so I could meet with my tree trimmers, and it felt good to be getting active at eight AM. Hopefully, the adjustment to my medication my doctor made last week will end my lengthy sleeping sessions.

I have a busy day ahead of me. At ten AM, I will drive to Tampa for a doctor’s appointment, a follow up on my hand surgery I underwent in early August. Then I’ll go directly to the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. I have to visit the supermarket and wine market on my way home.

By the way, do you find our friend to the left here as sexy as I do. And I like the way his shorts allow us to see the briefs he’s wearing underneath them. God, what a babe …. πŸ˜‰

Tonight, around eight PM, the Tampa Bay Rays play Oakland in the AL Wild Card contest. It’s a single-game situation, so it’s do or die tonight.

I am not a huge baseball fan, but I do like the Rays a good deal, and I wish them the best tonight. Have a great Wednesday, everyone, wherever you might be today. πŸ™‚

A boyfriend in your bed. What could be better?

Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve been single now for 2-1/2 years, and though I don’t miss my ex-partner’s duplicitous behaviors one bit, IΒ doΒ miss sharing a bed with someone on a nightly basis. There’s something very special about falling asleep holding your boyfriend in your arms, and waking up next to him in the morning. It’s the way gay men are supposed to go through life, I think. Anyway, who wouldn’t want to wake up next to the guy in the upper photo. Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

I spent a very pleasant evening with an old friend, going over his book that I edited for him, and then we enjoyed dining on a spinach salad and a baked ziti dish I had prepared Sunday. The food was good, and my friend ate two servings of the ziti, which let me know he really liked the food.

By the way, do you find the boy in the lower photo as appealing as I do? I love his rippling abs and that little “happy trail” dribbling into his shorts from his navel. I could spend a lot of time down there with my tongue. πŸ˜‰

I have an easy Tuesday ahead of me. I’m doing laundry right now, and after lunch I’ll need to do some housecleaning so my place looks neat and clean for my weekend house guest. Around four PM, I’ll take a two-mile run, here on the island. And maybe tonight I will visit my timeshare to swim in the pool.

Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.

Beautiful blond guys; easy Monday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site, then you know I’m a fan of guys with dark hair and eyes; that’s my taste in men. But I can certainly appreciate the beauty of young men with blond hair and blue eyes, like Alan Carey, whom you see to the left here. I mean, what a handsome guy. πŸ™‚

I watched a little football last night while I dined on leftovers, and then I spent some time on the phone with a lovely young man who will be visiting me from the Midwest this coming weekend.He’s such a sweet guy and very cute. Lucky me …. πŸ˜‰

I was up at a reasonable hour this morning, and after I had breakfast, I worked on editing my novel-in-progress. Then I solved the L.A.Times crossword puzzle.

Now it’s noon, and right after lunch, I will climb into my Element and drive into town to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming session. I try to do that three days per week, as it’s good for my physical and mental health. I missed last Friday because I had too much to do over at my vacation rental this weekend.

By the way, do you find the young man to the left here as appealing as I do? Great skin and hair, and a nice slender body. Definitely boyfriend material. Why doesn’t he live near me? πŸ™

All right, everyone, I need to get busy packing for the gym, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a terrific Monday, wherever you are today. πŸ™‚

Another guy with kissable lips; Martin is tired ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Like I said this morning, I find kissing a cute young man terribly sexy, especially if he has luscious lips like our friend to the left here. I imagine he can do other things with his lovely mouth besides kissing, too. πŸ˜‰

I spent about three hours working over at my vacation rental, doing touch up painting inside and out, cleaning up the patio, and putting down mulch. It looks really nice over there now, but it was hot on the patio this afternoon, and I am very tried now.

I thought a friend was having me over to his house this evening, but he just had to cancel, and that’s okay. I have tasty leftovers in the fridge and a movie to watch, so I’ll be good.

Have a nice Sunday night, friends.

Guys with luscious lips; breezy morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

To me, kissing is the most sensual act I can engage in with another guy. It even eclipses intercourse, at least in my book. As boys, we are told two boys should not kiss under any circumstances, which only makes kissing all the more exciting, because it’s a taboo.

Now, I don’t know about you, but if I had a date with Mr. Blue Eyes to the left here, I’d be thinking about kissing him from the moment we met up. Look at thoseΒ lips.Β Aye-yi-yi ….

Well, I ended up spending my Saturday night by myself, as my date decided to stay home in Tampa, which I was fine with. I watched another episode of the Netflix series,Β London Spy,Β which is quite interesting, especially because the main character is gay and cute as hell.

This morning, when my alarm went off at nine AM, I forced myself to get out of bed and brew coffee. I scanned the newspaper, then got busy at the keyboard, writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress. I wrote for two hours, some really good stuff, I think, and now lunch time is approaching.

This afternoon, I have plenty to do, over at my vacation rental apartment. I need to do touch up painting in the kitchen, then I need to clean up the patio, now that the contractor has finished pouring a new concrete pad back there. I’ll need to trim shrubs over there as well, and use a leaf blower to tidy things up. I’ll put down some mulch, too. Then I’ll need to take a two-mile run for some exercise.

A friend and neighbor has invited me over to his place to watch a film this evening, along with two other people I know, friends, so it’ll be a nice evening. Have a great Sunday, everyone.
