Cute guys with dazzling smiles; busy day in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’m a sucker for a cute guy with a dazzling smile, and the boy to the left here certainly has an infectious grin, doesn’t he? I wonder if he’s a good kisser?

I spent a quiet evening at home last night, dining on leftovers and watching television news about the impeachment proceedings. I was in bed by 10:30, where I read for 30 minutes before going to sleep. This morning, I actually got up at 8:45 and brewed myself some coffee before having breakfast.

I spent two hours this morning writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, and I wrote some pretty tough stuff. I really like my narrator and the story line. The book has plenty of humor as well as drama, a good mix, I think.

Now, have a look at the boy to the left here. What an amazing smile he has, and he’s soΒ cute.Β πŸ™‚Β  I wish he lived in my neighborhood. πŸ˜‰

I have a busy day ahead of me. My seasonal tenants, who occupy my vacation rental next door each winter, are arriving Monday to stay for 3-1/2 months, and I need to give the apartment a thorough cleaning–fans blades, Venetian blinds, floors, bathroom, all surfaces, the works. It’ll take me at least three hours, but then it’ll be all ready for occupancy.

A repairman isΒ supposedΒ to visit this afternoon to fix my gas fireplace, which has been acting wonky. I hope he actually shows up.

Tonight, our community association is sponsoring a Christmas bonfire on the beach down the street from my house, and I will attend for 45 minutes or so before having my dinner.

Have a nice Thursday, friends.

Cute boys flexing for the camera; easy night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I think it’s funny when cute young guys try to show off their masculinity by flexing their muscles for the camera. Hey, guys, you don’t look too intimidating to me, but you sure are sexy. πŸ˜‰

Well, I did not post this morning because I slept in so late, and needed to get myself to the YMCA on time.

I had a pretty good workout at the YMCA, but the pool was so crowded this afternoon, I didn’t get to swim my laps. So, I hit the supermarket for several item, and then I drove home.

It’s very quiet, here on the island tonight. Part of that’s because there are very few tourists here right now; they are all at home getting ready for the holidays. I like the quiet just fine.

I am supposed to have a date coming over tonight, but now it looks like that may be postponed until tomorrow, which is okay.

I don’t really have plans for this evening, other than having a couple of drinks and cooking my dinner. I have a Netflix rental to watch and a book to read in bed, all good Have a nice Wednesday night, friends.

Another boy looking sad; pretty evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Have a look at the photo to the left here. He’s a beautiful guy, of course, but he look terribly sad, like has the weight of the world on his shoulders. Did he come out to a straight friend who reacted badly? Did he have an argument with his boyfriend? Or maybe he’s going through a breakup. Whatever the case, the photo makes me want to speak some words of encouragement to the poor guy.

It’s been a good day all around. I got thins done around my property, and IΒ finallyΒ found a gas company in Tampa who is willing to repair my gas fireplace. When I described the problem to the guy, he said it’s probably an easy fix, which made me feel a sense of relief. I also walked three miles on the beach, wearing only swim trunks and a tank top.

Now, it’s a beautiful evening, here on the island, and I am ready to relax. After my patio furniture gets delivered, around 5:30 PM, my neighbor will join my to share a bottle of red wine. I have fresh salmon for my dinner and a good bottle of California white wine to go with it. Yummy. πŸ™‚

Have a great Tuesday night, friends.

Guys feeling sad; another perfect morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I try to keep things upbeat on this site. After all, we have enough misery in this world without me adding to it. But sometimes I will come across a few photos depicting sad boys that I find quite moving. I’m putting up two this morning.

I often wonder what circumstances caused the photographer to create the scene in the upper photo: A naked young man atop his skateboard, obviously not happy, and posed on an urban rooftop. What’s it all mean? I guess we’ll never know but I sure like the photo. πŸ™‚

I rose around ten this morning to find myself in the midst of another perfect weather day, here on the island. The sun is shining, the air is still and dry, and the temperature’s 75 degrees F. Oh, how I love late fall in central Florida. πŸ™‚

Have a look at the photo to the left here. Do you find it as moving as I do. It makes me want to wrap my arms around the guy and tell him everything will be okay.Β  πŸ™‚

I don’t have too much on my plate today, except doing some editing and maybe writing some fresh material for my novel-in-progress. My house is clean and tidy, and my yard’s in great shape. I will definitely take another three-mile walk on the beach this afternoon. Then, around 5:30 PM, a custom furniture company is delivering two new Adirondack chairs and a matching table for my patio fire pit. I already own chairs built by this company, and they are both comfortable and durable.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Tuesday, wherever you might be. πŸ™‚

Another hot guy in black-and-white; quiet Monday evening in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

The young man t the left here is a Romanian fashion model named Cristian Chirac, and I personally believe he’s one of the most beautiful guys on Earth. I love his lanky frame, his delicate facial features, and his wavy hair, Yummy …. πŸ™‚

Well, I got such a late start on my day that I skipped going to the YMCA and stayed here on the island. I took a beautiful three-mile walk on the beach for some exercise, then I got some yard work done on my patios. I watered plants and tidied up my house, and now the time is approaching five PM.

I have zero planned for my evening, other than cooking and maybe visiting my timeshare down the street for a soak in the hot tub, if I can talk my neighbor into going with me. That’s about it.

Have a nice Monday night, friends.


Sexy guys in black-and-white; amazing morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site (And thanks to everyone who does.) then you know I am a huge fan of quality black-and-white photography, especially when the subject is a handsome young man. And most Mondays, I like to share a few of my favorites with all of you. The first photo, just above, is great in so many ways–beautiful guy, careful lighting to highlight his features, and a mood that doesn’t suggest the photo is posed. How would you like to have the model wandering about your house in his birthday suit? Yummy ….

I spent a pleasant evening at home yesterday, enjoying my newly-decorated Christmas tree and the beautiful fall weather we’re having right now. I dozed off after I ate, and probably slept for 45 minutes before awaking on my love seat. Then I ended up going to bed around one AM because I wasn’t sleepy. πŸ™

Naturally, I ended up sleeping until almost eleven AM, and I got nothing done in the writing department. By the time I had breakfast, it was almost time for me to leave for the YMCA, but I decided to stay here on the island and take a three-mile walk on the beach for exercise. It’s so beautiful here today–sunny, about 75 degrees F, and only the lightest of breezes.

I’ll have some yard work to perform after my walk–using a leaf blower on my patios and trimming shrubs, and I have some correspondence to tend to, that’s about it. Have a nice Monday, friends.

It’s time for Martin to trim his Christmas tree ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I have never trimmed a Christmas tree while naked, but looking at the photo to the left, I think it might be a lot of fun, especially if you’re doing it with a cute boyfriend who has a nice behind. What a great photo. πŸ™‚

I have not done many productive things today. The weather was so beautiful I only wanted to enjoy my home. I made a run to the wine market during mid-afternoon. Then, when I returned home, I put the lights on my tree, my least favorite tree-trimming task. But now it’s done and I think I did a good job of arranging the lights symmetrically, never an easy feat.

Tonight, after I get a nice little alcohol buzz on, I will hang my Christmas ornaments on the tree while I listen to Christmas music on my sound system. I have an entire collection of Christmas CDs I really enjoy; they get me in the spirit. πŸ™‚

Last night, the exterior Christmas decorations I put up on my deck lit up for the first time this season, and they look great. I have an illuminated Frosty the Snowman I have owned since the early 1980s, and I always feel good when he’s up there grinning.Β  πŸ™‚

Have a nice Sunday night, friends.

Sexy guys with long hair; another perfect day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

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. But it was also a pain in the ass to take care of, and I finally had it all cut off when I got a job with a law firm. I can honestly say I don’t miss the long hair, but I can certainly appreciate the beauty of guys who let their hair grow lengthy, like the two in today’s photo posts. I mean, check out the young man to the left here. Imagine running your fingers through his shaggy locks while the two of you tongue kiss? Aye-yi-yi …. πŸ˜‰

I attended our island’s Christmas boat parade last night, then I came home and prepared a tasty meal–steamed mussels over pasta and a salad. I watched a little football while I dined. Then I spent time on my back porch, listening to my patio fountain gurgle.

I slept in late (again) this morning, and after a quick breakfast, I read the Sunday newspaper from cover to cover. Los of interesting things are going on right now, and I found my reading more than entertaining.

It’s another picture-perfect weather day, here on the island. At some point this afternoon, I need to visit the wine market, since I’m on a dry shore when it comes to vino. Then I intend to trim my new Christmas tree, which I am looking forward to.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone.

A sweet boyfriend in your bed ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Oh my, imagine waking up next to the guy to the left here, then snuggling under the covers with him for an hour or more? I’d probably take out a second mortgage to pay for that privilege. πŸ™‚

It’s been a good day, here on the island. After a slow start, I got busy on my to do list and managed to get everything done–bringing my Christmas decorations down from the attic, getting my tree into its stand and into the house (with my neighbor’s help), putting Frosty the Snowman up on my deck and trimming the deck with lights, doing laundry and minor housework, and blowing off my patio.

My tree looks lovely in my living room, and I will probably decorate it tomorrow evening, unless something comes up. I’m ready for the holidays….Β  πŸ™‚

Have a nice Saturday night, friends.

A boyfriend in your bed; another sweet day on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve been single for nearly three years now, and what I miss most about having a boyfriend is waking up next to him in the morning and snuggling under the covers. It’s such a nice feeling, and one I look forward to experiencing again when I meet the right guy. πŸ™‚

I spent a pleasant evening at home yesterday, dining on tasty fare and watching the latest news on the impeachment proceedings. I spent a little time on my back porch before retiring with a book, and soon I was in dreamland.

As is often the case, I slept in late this morning, which is terribly frustrating. I checked the results of my lab testing from a blood draw on Thursday, and they say my thyroid is still not properly functioning, despite the medication I’ve been on for months. I see my doctor on the 17th to discuss the situation.

It’s another pretty day outside–sunny, cool and still. I am devoting most of this afternoon to Christmas decorating. My illuminated Frosty the Snowman goes up on my deck, along with a strand of colored lights. I’ll get my tree in its stand and ask my neighbor to help me get it in the house. I’m not sure when I will decorate the tree, maybe tomorrow night. We’ll see.

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