Boys and their cameras; productive afternoon for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Most selfies are uninteresting, but if a selfie’s subject is a handsome young man, sometimes I’ll save the photo and share it with you.

Now, I am not a huge tattoo fan, but I think Mr. Orange Shorts to the left here is a pretty hot guy. He’s just my type–lanky, with broad shoulders, fair-skinned, with dark hair and eyes. Definitely boyfriend material for Martin. πŸ˜‰

I got off to a slow start this morning, as I had to sleep off last night’s dinner party, which involved much wine and also a bit of smoking. πŸ™‚

I was scheduled to have hand surgery tomorrow, just an out-patient situation, nothing major. But this morning my doctor’s office called and said we’d have to postpone the procedure for three weeks.

So, right after lunch, I visited the YMCA for the first time in a month. I swam a quarter-mile in the pool, then performed a full workout in the fitness center. It felt good to get my muscles taxed and my lungs pumping. I left feeling refreshed. I hit the supermarket and wine store on my way home, and now I’m stocked.

By the way, isn’t our friend to the left here cute? That Speedo looks good on him, but he needs to tidy up his bedroom. What a mess ….

The time’s approaching five PM, and I have an easy evening ahead. I’m cooking salmon and teaming it up with a sweet potato and a spinach/avocado salad.

All right, everyone, I need to tend to correspondence, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Monday, wherever you might be. And don’t forget to smile frequently, it’s important. πŸ™‚

Another sexy triathlete; nice evening in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I know you guys enjoyed the photos I posted this morning, so I thought I’d post another triathlete photo for your viewing pleasure. Yeah, he’s skinny, but that’s okay. He has great skin and hair, and a nice smile on his face.

I spent most of my Sunday indoors, due to the ungodly heat and humidity outside. My friends who are spending the night next door arrived around four PM, and after they left for the beach, I took a two-mile run. A breeze was blowing, so it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, and now I am home in the a/c while waiting for my body to stop sweating.

I’m fixing diner for my friends, a dish I called Mexican chicken. I’ll slather three chicken breasts with yogurt-based ranch dressing and then cover the breasts in salsa. I’ll bake them for one hour and fifteen minutes, then melt shredded cheddar cheese over them. I’ll serve it with pasta and a spinach salad, and it should be real tasty.

Have a nice Sunday evening, friends.

Sexy triathletes; sauna-like conditions on the island today ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Have you ever attended a triathlon? I have, several times, and the sights are always interesting. The guys swim a mile, bike 14 miles, and run three miles. The competitors are in supremely fit condition, and they’re not wearing much at the finish line. Yummy …. πŸ˜‰

A friend and I went to a local bar to dine on cheeseburgers last night, and our food was delicious. The place was crowded, and a live musician performed. We had a good time, but by the time we returned home, we were both beat, so we didn’t go for a swim at my timeshare. I had a glass of wine on my back porch before retiring with a book. I was exhausted after spending a couple of hours doing yard work.

Weather conditions today are dreadful–92 degrees F, with high humidity, no cloud cover, and no breeze. It’s like we are living in a sauna. This is the kind of day where I don’t even want to go outdoors.

By the way, do you find the young man to the left here as appealing as I do? I like his stringy limbs and sweat-drenched hair. If he were my boyfriend I’d ask him to leave his Sharpie numbers on his left leg and arm, so I could lick them later. (I know, I’m a kinky guy at times.)

Friends are coming out to the beach this afternoon, and I imagine we will set up my tent down there to afford some shade. I will cook dinner for us and they will spend the night in my vacation rental next door. So, it should make for a nice Sunday. I may try to take a two-mile run around four PM if we get some cloud cover. And I’ll at least walk three miles on the beach for exercise.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy on household chores, so I will close this post by wishing you a pleasant Sunday, wherever you might be. πŸ™‚

Hot guys at the beach; steamy Saturday on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I live in a beach community on Florida’s Gulf Coast, and at least three or four times a week, I’ll take a three-mile walk for some extra exercise beyond my usual regimen. Our beach is popular with students form our local college campuses, and especially on weekends, groups of young men populate the shore wearing little other than swim trunks. It makes for interesting walks.;-)

Do you find the young man to the left here as sexy as I do? He has great skin and hair, and nice muscles. Definitely boyfriend material. πŸ™‚

Yesterday, after a very busy morning doing three hours of yard work, I spent my afternoon running errands and getting a haircut. The air was so hot and humid, I felt exhausted by the time I arrived home. I took care of paying bills that had stacked up during my three-week absence, and then I prepared dinner–baked salmon with a sweet potato and a spinach salad. No sooner had I finished dinner and cleaned up the kitchen, did my eyelids begin to droop. I ended up in bed with a book, and slept a good nine hours. I guess my body needs to re-acclimate to the Florida summer’s heat and humidity. But at least my yard and patios look nice now, and things are back to normal.

Right after lunch, I’ll take one of my beach walks. I have some editing to do when I return to the house, and around four PM I will take a two-mile run, here on the island. A friend and I plan to get dinner out, and maybe visit my timeshare afterward for a dip in the pool, if it’s not storming.

Have a nice Saturday, everyone.

A boyfriend in your bed. What could be better?


Hi, friends and readers:

I’ve had two long-term relationships, one lasting 27 years, the second lasting seven, and I have to say what I miss the most, now that I am single again, is sharing a bed with my partner. Falling asleep in another guy’s arms, and waking up next to him in the morning, is something so special. And who knows? Maybe I’ll find another partner to share my bed with one day. (None of the guys I’ve dated over the past two years were live-in boyfriend material, but I’ll keep looking. Don’t hate me, Anthony.)

Yesterday, I spent a pleasant evening with my old friend at his home in the city. Then I came home a read a book in bed until I snoozed out, around 10:30 PM. I woke at seven this morning, feeling rested and ready for a good day. Since today is Friday, I’ll visit the YMCA right after lunch, to swim a quarter-mile in the pool, then work out in the fitness center. I’ll get a haircut on my way home, which is badly needed.

I am not really sure what I’ll do with my evening. I’ve asked my friend and neighbor to spend time with me, maybe go out for dinner or visit my timeshare for a swim and a soak in the hot tub. We’ll see, but it sure feels good to be home after a three-week absence. This weekend I’ll need to focus on getting my yard back in shape, as things grew like crazy during my absence and I need to do trimming and raking.

Have a nice Friday, everyone, and if you have a boyfriend, be sure to send some time snuggling between the sheets. He’ll love you for it. πŸ™‚

One more boy in black-and-white; quiet evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Well, it’s late for me, but I decided to put up one more b&w photo for your viewing pleasure. Isn’t he beautiful? And I love the expression on his face, as if if doesn’t know the photographer lusts for him. Yummy…. πŸ˜‰

I made all my afternoon appointments on time, then drove to my friend’s house, where I managed to run a mile before the lightning and thunder chased me inside. My friend and I spent a pleasant evening, drinking a few beers and dining on mucho tasty pizza and salad.

Now I am home and ready for an early bed time. I’m feeling rested and awfully glad to be in my comfortable home by the Gulf. Oh, what a lucky man I am. Have a nice Thursday night, friends.

Beautiful guys in black-and-white; busy afternoon in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site, then you know I’m a fan of quality black-and-white photography, particularly when the subject is a handsome young man. The guy to the right here is just my type: dark wavy hair, fair skin and a lanky frame. Who’d pass up a date with him? Not me.

I didn’t do much last night, other than preparing dinner and watching a Netflix rental. I was tired after all my travels, so I hit the bed early with a book. As much as I enjoyed my trip out west, it’s nice to sleep in my own comfortable bed. πŸ™‚

I slept in late this morning, but now I have to scramble because I have two afternoon appointments in places far north of here. Then I’ll drive to my friends’ house where I will run two miles around a lake. Then we’ll do our usual Thursday night routine–drink a few beers, catch up on each other’s lives, and dine on takeout.

Do you find the young man to the left here as appealing as I do? He has beautiful hair and skin, and such lovely eyes. And those lips just beg to be kissed. I wonder who he is and where he lives?

Outside, it’s overcast and damp, and it’s supposed to remain that way all day, which is fine with me. It keeps the heat down, and will make my afternoon run more pleasant.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing all of you a very special Thursday, wherever you might be today. And keep on smiling, it’s important. πŸ™‚

Sexy and slender; productive day for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I know many of you guys out there like men with bulging muscles, and I get that. Beef can be sexy. But for my money, I’ll take a slender young man any day. I mean, who could resist running his hands over the smooth flesh of the young man to the left here? Not me. In my book, he has the perfect build, and I love his wavy hair. Definitely boyfriend material.

Today was my first day home after my three-week excursion to the far West, and I stayed busy all day.

The first thing I did was unpack my suitcase and backpack, and put things away. I ran a huge load of laundry and went through about two-thirds of the mail that came in during my absence.

Around two PM, I ran errands–wine market, drug store and supermarket. Now my kitchen is stocked and ready for the remainder of the week.

Now, have a look at the young man to the left here. All right, you might say he’s almost skeletal, but I still find him extremely attractive. Do you?

Outside, it’s pretty steamy. It’s been raining a lot in the Tampa Bay area the past few days, and the humidity is very high, but I have my a/c running and it keeps me cool and dry.

I don’t have a lot planned for my evening, other than cooking myself aΒ  nice chicken and pasta dish I always enjoy. I have a DVD movie I want to watch, and I’ll open a bottle of California Sauvignon blanc to enjoy with my meal. It all sounds good to me. Have a nice Wednesday night, friends. And if your boyfriend’s skinny, pinch him on the butt for me. πŸ˜‰

Martin’s back from the far West; beautiful Timothee Chalamet ….

Hi, friends and readers:

This is one of the most poinient scenes fromΒ Call Me By Your Name.Β Poor Elio knows his time with Oliver is short, and is not happy about it, but he’s learning about falling in love and losing one’s love object to some other person, because of practicalities. Heartbreaking, really, but a great film scene. Life’s lessons can be terribly hard, even at my age, but I continue to discover how everything works. Can you say…karma?

Yes, I am back, friends, and feeling a bit out of joint due to the fact I’ve been in the far West for 3 weeks, and I just returned from the Mountain time zone. Our flight home wasn’t bad, really, and my bud’s girlfriend picked us up at the airport around ten PM, Tampa time. I got home by 11:15, and all was well.

I’ll need 5 days or so before I get back into sync with my life here in FL, but that’s okay. It feels good to be home, and I say thanks to my neighbor, Kim, who looked after things while I was gone.

The weather was great in the places we visited: Wyoming, Montana and British Columbia. We met so many nice and welcoming people and experienced amazing terrain. Mostly, we stayed in Airbnd spots with kitchens, so we could cook our own food. Of course, I picked a few dud places, but we did okay. The trip was a total success.

I wish I’d had Elio greeting me tonight, when I returned home, but Porn Hub sufficed. I love my home, here on the island, and I am grateful for three of the most outstanding weeks of my life.

Good night, friends and readers.

Hot boys at the beach; time for Martin to pack ….

Hi, friends and readers:

If you follow this site (and I hope you do), then you know I live in a beach community on Florida’s Gulf Coast, west of Tampa/St. Petersburg. The Gulf is 100 yards from my front door, and so is a lovely sugar-sand beach I enjoy walking on most every day.

One of the joys of strolling the shore is viewing all the boys form our nearby colleges, who run around in swim trunks and little else.

Who wouldn’t enjoying looking at the guys in today’s photo posts, and watching them toss a football or a Frisbee while their muscles flex under their smooth skins. Ah, the beauty of youth …. πŸ˜‰

I spent a delightful evening yesterday with a guy I met in an online dating app. He was born in Chicago, but is of southeast Asian descent, and quite handsome. We had such a fun time together, and I’m looking forward to seeing him again when I return to Florida.

I’m devoting today to packing for my three-week stay in Montana and Wyoming. Our flight leaves in mid-morning tomorrow, and I’m so damned excited I’m about to pee in my pants. It will be so nice to enjoy sunny and cool weather, and the thought of hiking among snow-capped mountains has me drooling. I have never been to Montana, and I already know I will love it there. My friend Bill and I have some lodgings reserved where we can cook meals and get to hiking trails easily.

I will post once more this evening. Then you won’t be hearing from me until I return to Florida in mid-July. Have a great Monday, everyone.
