    OK, a follow-up to my threads regarding our latest trip there, having returned 4 days ago. Threads in which naturally I got the obligatory "pics or it didn't happen" comment. Happy to oblige those guys! BTW, all faces are blurred for privacy.

    Me nude while posting to RJ on my iPad, using a folding Bluetooth keyboard on my knees, as I had mentioned in another thread. Sporting my new silver beard, and a chubbiness I'm slowly losing after my cancer treatment:

    IMG_0323_2_zps07657ee5.jpg

    Here's the view below the sundeck I was on, with the pool, and performance stage in the background. The hot tub is out of view, though you can see the roof of the outdoor bar to the left. The guy on the box is a dancer who later stripped down. That's a drag queen DJ in the upper right with the greenish wig:

    IMG_0538_zps6ff2187a.jpg

    Here's the bar view of that pool. Again I blurred the faces, as well as that one guy's dick, to avoid online problems.

    A bartender at that outdoor bar:

    Another bartender, wearing just a bandana to (barely) cover his stuff in front.

    Here's the exterior of where we stayed, on Duval St. The pool is around back and not visible by the public. The first-floor wood doors on the left are normally open all day, for the Bourbon St. Pub's bar. I took this pic at dawn to avoid pedestrians & street traffic, normally both heavy. We usually have our breakfast on that second floor veranda with the white railing and rainbow flags.

    Too much food or too much booze never does a body good!

    Nor does going through a cancer treatment that removes the testosterone from your body do a man good. People who actually know me always remark how little I eat.

    Nor do I drink as much as southbeach has invented about me. I myself joke about drinking because to me it IS a joke, nothing I'm ashamed to talk about. I like to drink, but always very much within limits. Another thing friends notice is that I can make a single drink last forever. They'll have had a second, even a third, and I'm still on my first.

    What I lack is adequate exercise, because of my mobility issues. Nor do my meds help, that slow my metabolism down.

    But not excuses, just challenges I must face. I've recently joined a gym again and have now lost over 10 pounds. But a lot more to go.

    Thanks! About 10 pounds down from where I've been for a year (or 15 from a short spike I hit). I'm 197 in that pic, but I'm just under 5'8", so that makes me fat. But I want to lose about 40 more. 155 to 160 would get me back to where I was when I moved here to Florida almost 8 years ago, and before my cancer treatment.

    People assume those with cancer always lose weight, especially with chemo or when the cancer's advanced. That happened to my late father in his last year, he dropped over 100 pounds.

    But I didn't have chemo, some cancers are treated differently. And in my case they chemically suppressed my testosterone (which the cancer itself and my age had already lowered). Low testosterone in a male promotes weight gain and muscle loss. I was getting a eunuch's build, being effectively chemically castrated by the doctors for a time. Now my testosterone is back up to low normal.

    So I'm hopeful my new gym membership will supply the exercise component I need.

    Frightening.
    That's what you call a truce? Personally insulting me, my husband, and our friends?

    I'm surprised this photo is still up! icon_eek.gif

    Thanks for the bump. It helps having a devoted stalker who follows me all over RJ, trying to disrupt & derail every thread I make. You've done it to me for 6 years, and you're still doing it. I know I can count on years more from you. icon_biggrin.gif

    Art,

    Some unsolicited advice....take it or leave it. I think it's a bad idea to post nude photos of yourself on this site. They apparently excite Southbeach to the point of obsession and stalking. You're probably going to wake up one day in a dirty basement, bound and gagged with Southbeach sucking your toes. icon_neutral.gif

    southbeach has been stalking me for 6 years here. And you realize he deliberately quoted my pics so my removing them myself will do no good. The complete hypocrite. If he didn't like them he shouldn't have quoted them.

    And my pic was quite mild, you can't see anything, and my face is blurred.

    Art_Dummy:

    1) I am not stalking you on this site

    2) All you need to do is removing the pic from your photobucket site (or whatever site it is on) and voila! No more pictures of you in all your Gay Royal Nudeness showing up here.

    3) Sorry to burst your bubble, but let's just say... you're not my type, so no, I don't "like" your nude pic.



    Yes, you are stalking him. The man can't turn around without you up his ass. And why should he have to remove his pic from Photobucket? He obviously wanted to post his pic.....he just didn't need some creepy dude reposting it without his permission to other threads. No one needs your approval to post a pic. Don't like it? Stop looking at it. And no one gives a rat's ass about this stupid "truce." You're like that ThAntiJock dude who pollutes every thread with his hate posts about BonTon (or whatever his name is.) We get it; you hate each other. Just leave it alone.

    I am fully aware of that, something I've done many times. But I don't WANT to remove my pics from my storage site. I have more uses for them than just RJ, and I'd lose them at other places, too. I know it would please you if I had to remove or change the addresses to those photos, and then have to change my other links, as well.

    You're just a mean, spiteful person, and I say again you only quoted those pics, that you claim to hate so much, to cause this dilemma for me.

    I'm not such a dummy after all, that personal slam another indication of your behavior towards me here. And your creating phony truces as PR to show what a kind & benevolent person you are only fool some of the less well-informed members here. RJ veterans know you too well, your stripes never change.

    OK, here's yet another attempt at a cease fire, coming from me yet again.

    As I just posted, Art_Deco, if you delete the photo from your photobucket account, then reupload it, the photo will have a different URL. That will cause all links in all forum postings here to cease showing the picture. AND you can still have it in your photobucket account.

    There, I hopefully just explained something to you that you didn't know, and that will help you extricate yourself from the position you find yourself in vis-a-vis that photo.

    You're welcome!

    You must really think other RJers are also "dummies" to not understand my reply to you. Or are YOU the dummy, as you call me?

    If so back and try to read my last reply again. I don't want to have to change other links at places in addition to RJ. You deliberately caused this dilemma by making a disruptive & insulting issue about my pics and yet quoting them.

    Hoping to pressure me into a renaming and reposting project I don't want to do. So much for your latest "attempt at a cease fire." As phony as the others.

    Yes, because there were none when I was taking pics. It's the same at any gay guest house, despite what the posed promotional pics they post online may show and what they put in their brochures. It's the luck of the draw on the days you're staying there.

    The particular "crop" when we were visiting this time wasn't bad, just not particularly good, either. And I certainly didn't contribute to the good myself.

    It's like weather when you vacation - sometimes you get all sunny days, or sometimes all rainy ones, and sometimes a mix. You don't get to control it, unless of course you bring some muscle bois of your own with you. Which I've seen at this place and others in Key West in past visits, just not this time. But we still enjoyed ourselves. icon_biggrin.gif

    Several years ago in midlife the gay son of one of my mother's friends was given an early inheritance of a million or so dollars by that still-living relative, disbursing her estate to live out his dream with his partner - to open a gay bed & breakfast in Costa Rica or the Dominican Republic (I forget which). I'm immediately thinking that to be successful something like that had to be either 5 star or very low-rent/affordable, so curious I googled the name and up it came. It fell somewhere in the middle, it was like a neutral motel not near the water in the hills with a mountain or volcano view from the pool in the distance. I looked at the pictures of attractive naked young men playing in and lounging around the pool. Squinting, I saw they were photoshopped in, confirming my suspicion that you can't find attractive naked young people in such places unless they're the staff, unless perhaps it's in the Cote d'Azur. They've since gone under, the website gone, the inheritance presumably squandered. It's nice knowing some are still around with someone enjoying them, but I wonder whether such places will go the way of Catskill resorts. I can see the movie now - "Dirty Prancing."

    When I was in Mykonos I visited some friends who were staying at an all gay hotel on another part of the island. The first night I was there I saw about 8 hot buff guys completely naked making out by the pool. I was disgusted!!!icon_mad.gif

    The next night after coming back from the club drunk, I decided to have a cigarette by the pool before going to bed. I met this hot, muscled Italian dude staying in the same hotel talking with a friend. I asked for a lighter and struck up a conversation....

    5 minutes later I was sucking his dick on the lounge chair.....icon_twisted.gif

    Hey, if you can't beat em....join em!!!icon_lol.gif

    This is why Jmusc is liked by many on this site. He adds humor to an otherwise shitty place (thanks Kevex, Bonafart etc) and he ain't afraid to stir the pot. All the punk pussy queens with no pic will jump on him and call him a whore but they know they will NEVER get laid or have a LIFE. We want pics next time Jmusc. If Art can post em, you can too. icon_lol.gif

    Well, it was the standard "pics or it didn't happen" comment to my earlier Key West thread that prompted me to post these pics. Including one rather tame one of myself, doing what I had mentioned in that other thread. And revealing how I sometimes post to RJ, when I'm out-and-about, not at home.

    HORRORS!!! I got lambasted. Damned if I do, damned if I don't.

    If I hadn't posted these here, I would have been taunted for lying about Key West. So I do post some pics that prove my other thread, and I get bashed for that. Some guys just wanna bash no matter what, for the pure joy that bashing others gives their empty lives. That's how these social sites work. icon_razz.gif

    Sorry to say but you can expect SB to jump all over this. Cue Hyacinth in 3 2 1
