Sexy Dylan Dauzat; beautiful morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I know little about Instagram personality Dylan Dauzat. I tried watching one of his videos on YourTube and he came across as a nauseating and talent-less douche, but he certainly is cute. I wouldn’t mind it if he ran around my house shirtless 24/7, as long as he kept his mouth shut. 😉 Anyway, I’m putting up a few photos of him today, which I find rather…stimulating. Nice headband, Dylan.

I slept in late this morning, though I am not sure why, since I was in bed before eleven last night. Now it’s around eleven and I’m in the midst of preparations for my trip to New Orleans. I have a load of laundry going and I brought my suitcase down from the attic. I watered all the houseplants and took care of correspondence. Now all I need to do is pack.

Here’s another Dylan photo I really like. In my view, the less clothes he wears the better.  😉 That looks like southern California in the background, doesn’t it?

Anyway, I have a few errands to run this afternoon–wine market, alterations shop, bank. Nothing major. A truck skipped a stone into my windshield and cracked it the other day, and an auto glass company is coming out here to replace it. (Thankfully it’s fully covered by insurance.) I’ll take a two-mile run around four PM, here on the island. Our weather is perfect today–mid-70’s and sunny–so I’ll enjoy the run. Then I’ll spend my evening in the city with my best friend, drinking a few beers and dining on takeout.

Have a great Thursday, friends. And keep smiling, it’s important. 🙂


Another sexy guy in an a-shirt; windy night on the island ,,,,

Hi, friends and readers:

Look a this guy to the left here. He has a perfect body for an a-shirt–nice shoulder and arm muscles, slim waist, flat stomach. Plus he’s cute as hell. Who wouldn’t want to spend an evening with him, especially if he wore that shirt? Aye-yi-yi, he’s definitely boyfriend material …. 😉

I had a good workout at the YMCA, but still could not get a lap lane, so I had to forego swimming. 🙁 Instead I came home and took care of correspondence. I did some editing on my novel-in-progress, and watered my newly-planted shrubs.

Now I am freshly showered and ready for a relaxing evening. I have some tasty leftovers for my dinner tonight–chicken and rice–and I’ll make a fresh fruit salad to go with them. After dinner, my neighbor and I will visit my timeshare for a soak in the hot tub. It’s windy outside this evening, but the temperature’s around 70 degrees F, so we’ll be fine.

Have a nice Wednesday night, friends.

Hot guys in a-shirts; busy day in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Not every guy can get away with wearing an a-shirt a/k/a wife-beater. He needs the right shoulders and arm muscles, and a flat stomach, like Mr. Casalegno to the left here. What a beautiful guy. I wonder if he has a boyfriend?

I had a great time with my friends last night. Our host cooked a fine meal–baked chicken with steamed rice and cheesy broccoli. We were supposed to watch a movie in cable, but ended conversing instead, far more entertaining.

I got home around ten PM and it wasn’t very long before I climbed into bed with the John Irving novel I am reading, In One Person. I might have read for a half-hour before I turned off the nightstand lamp and drifted into dreamland.

I have a busy day ahead of me. In about thirty minutes, I have to drive to west Tampa for an appointment, always a harrowing drive at this time of year because of all our northern visitors clogging the bridges and roads. I’ll return to downtown St. Pete to dine at my favorite hot dog emporium. Then I’m off to the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming.

I’ll have a few errands to run after I leave the gym, and then I’ll need to come home and start packing for my upcoming trip to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. My friend and I fly out very early Friday morning, and Thursday’s jam-packed with stuff I have to do, so I’ll do most of my packing tonight.

All right, everyone, I need to get busy, so I will close this post by wishing everyone a great Wednesday. I hope the sun is shining where you are, and keep a smile on your face, it’s important. 🙂

Another “boyfriend in bed” photo; another pretty evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Imagine walking into your bedroom this afternoon and finding lovely Victor Le Clerc (to the left) waiting their for you on the mattress. What would you do?

I know what I’d do–take his shirt and pants off him, for starters. Then I’d kiss him and run my fingers through his wavy hair.

Oh, well, Victor’s not in my bedroom this evening (sadly), so I won’t be getting kissed anytime soon. 🙁 But that’s okay, I’ve had a nice afternoon. After lunch, I hit the supermarket, since my refrigerator’s contents were kind of sparse. The traffic on my island was crazy today because the weather was so nice. But I got back home fairly easily, and put my purchases away. Then I took a two-mile run.

Now I’m freshly showered and sipping from a cold beer while I write these words. Around 5:30 I will cruise into tow to spend the evening with friends. As mentioned, one guy’s cooking dinner, and then the three of us will watch a streaming movie on his large screen TV. I’m bringing smoked fish spread and crackers as an appetizer, and also a bottle of white wine. It’ll be fun.

Have a nice Tuesday night, friends.

A boyfriend in your bed, there’s nothing better ….


Hi, friends and readers:

If you’ve ever had a live-in boyfriend or partner, then you understand the simple joy of waking up next to him every morning and spending a little time showering him with affection before the day begins. It’s one of life’s finest gifts, and it’s what I miss most about being part of a couple. I hope you enjoy the little video clip I’ve posted here as much as I do.

I stayed home last night because by nine PM I felt tired. I went to be at ten, and I read for perhaps a half hour before turning out the lights. When I woke this morning (sadly, alone), the time was close to nine, and got busy with my day. I shaved and made my bed. I brewed coffee and made toast. Then I got busy at the keyboard, banging out fresh material for two hours.

Now it’s eleven AM and I am done writing for the day. I don’t have a lot on my plate, other than running a few errands, doing a little yard work, and taking a two-mile run, here on the island. Tonight, a good friend is having me over for dinner, and we’ll watch a Timothee Chalamet film, Beautiful Boy. It’s a movie about drug addiction. I hear it’s good, and Tim is so cute.

Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.

One more guy in a backward ball cap; pretty evening on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Do you guys find the young man to the left as appealing as I do? He’s clearly at the beach, and if he were down at the shore on my island, I would likely follow him around for as long as I could, admiring his athletic build and smooth skin. Aye-yi-yi, what a babe …. 😉

I had a thoroughly enjoyable workout at the YMCA, but no lap-swimming because, once again, the pool was too crowded. 🙁 Afterward, I visited Home Depot to purchase yard mulch and two new, under-the-cabinet lights for my kitchen. One of my old ones just burned out and I decided to replace both. These are LEDs so I won’t ever have to replace the bulbs.

I’m home now, and enjoyed the taste of a cold beer. It’s nice here tonight, sunny about 76 degrees, and still. But it’s going to get foggy later on, I can already see the fog building over the Gulf. I have tasty leftovers from my Saturday dinner I will heat up in the microwave and team with a fresh fruit salad. Yummy.

I’m not sure, but I may visit my timeshare to soak in the hot tub later on, or I’ll watch a Netflix streaming movie. Either choice sounds good. Have a nice Monday night, friends.

Sexy guys in backward ball caps; foggy morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

I like the look of a backward ball cap on a handsome young man, especially when he’s not wearing a shirt like Mr. Sexy to the left here. If he were my boyfriend I wouldn’t let him wear a shirt when he was at home. He’s just too delicious to cover up his torso. 😉

I spent last night by myself, watching a Netflix movie while I dined on leftovers from Thursday’s takeout meal. The dish was Greek spaghetti and it was real tasty, especially when I teamed it with a fresh spinach salad. Yummy ….

I was in bed and asleep by eleven last night, and then I woke up this morning at 7:30. After a quick breakfast, I got busy in the writing department. I wrote at a furious pace for 2-1/2 hours. My novel-in-progress is now at 95,000 words and nearing its conclusion, at least as far as the first draft is concerned.

People don’t understand how the creative writing process works. I never know how a book I am writing will end. I only know how the scene I am writing is likely to conclude. And when writing fiction, one must allow the creative side of the brain do the work. The logical side of the brain takes the back seat, at least until the first draft is complete. Then logic takes over during rewrites, at least that’s how it works for me.

BTW, isn’t this guy to the left delicious. I love his low-riding jeans and rippling abs. Another guy who shouldn’t wear a shirt at home. 😉

All right, everyone, I have much to do this morning before I leave for the YMCA, so I will conclude this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Monday, wherever you might be today. 🙂


Boys fast asleep; quiet Sunday in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

When I lived in my fraternity house in college, I shared a room with a boy named John who came from a south Florida town called Homestead. John was extremely good looking, with an athletic build, chestnut hair and chiseled facial features. I have never been a nap-taker, I can’t sleep during the day. But John took naps almost every afternoon, either naked or wearing only a pair of tight-fitting briefs.

I always liked watching John snooze. He looked so…vulnerable and innocent, kind of like the guys in this morning’s photo posts. I could watch either of these guys sleep for hours.

After I had dinner last night, a friend came over with a bottle of red wine and we had a nice visit. We had attended a celebration of life yesterday afternoon, and I think it put both of us in a reflective mood. I was happy for the company, and we enjoyed the fireplace blaze. After he went home, I climbed into bed with the novel I am presently reading, John Irving’s In One Person. The book’s main character is a bisexual boy in his mid-to-late teens who is exploring his desire for other boys, and for transsexual women. It’s a fine book.

Anyway, I read for about an hour before going to sleep, and then I didn’t wake up until 9:30 this morning. Why I slept so long I don’t know. But I feel rested and ready for the day’s activities. I plan on taking a three-mile walk, here on the island. I have some light yard word and house work to take care of, and I’ll read the Sunday paper. Maybe tonight I will visit my timeshare to soak in the hot tub.

Have a nice Sunday, everyone.

Another cute guy in boardshorts; easy night in store for Martin ….

Hi, friends and readers:

Since everyone liked my boardshorts photo posts this morning, I’m putting up another this evening.

It’s been a strange day, really. I woke up super early and feeling restless. Then I had to decide whether or not to attend a Celebration of Life gathering for a gay man I wasn’t all that close to, but his ex-partner is my neighbor and I decided to go. I’m glad I did because I know my neighbor appreciated my presence. A large crowd showed up, and the decedent’s family seemed gratified.

I have a easy Saturday night in store for me. I have leftovers from my fishing trip to enjoy, and then a friend and I will watch a Timothee Chalamet film on Amazon Prime titled Beautiful Boy. I hear it’s pretty good.

Have a nice Saturday evening, friends.

Sexy guys wearing boardshorts; sunny morning on the island ….

Hi, friends and readers:

For many years, boardshorts have been the swimsuit of choice for young men, and the suits look great on guys who have nice behinds, like the two in today’s photo posts.

Since I live in a beach community, I see a lot of young guys at the shore every weekend, and over the past two years I’ve noticed less and less boardshorts getting worn. Guys are going for shorter swim trunks with elastic waists, and I like the new look. But boardshorts will always have a special place in my heart.

I went to be with a book around 10:30 last night, after returning from my evening with my best friend. We dined on tasty Greek cuisine, and I enjoyed a few glasses of white wine. Once in bed, I fell asleep around eleven PM. Then I woke up this morning around seven. I tried to go back to sleep, but to no avail. So I got up and made breakfast and a pot of coffee.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I could follow this guy to the left around all day long. Nice cheeks …. 😉

I’ve spent most of my morning writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress, and now lunchtime is approaching. It’s a beautiful day outside–sunny, with a light breeze, and an air temperature around 75 degrees F. This afternoon, I will definitely take a walk on the beach to enjoy the great weather. And who knows, maybe I’ll encounter on of the guys in today’s photo posts. 😉

All right, everyone, I need to get some things done around here–laundry, cleaning up the kitchen, and those sorts of mundane tasks. So I will close this post by wishing all of you a wonderful Saturday, wherever you might be today. And keep a smile on your face, it’s important.
