And I freely admit, it's easy to make "backseat driver" comments about situations we have […]

Body, (Part 10), a.k.a. “Worker Man”

I've been getting a few "complaints" from some of my loyal female readers, saying that my "Body" series is a little too "skewed" towards women's photographs, and not enough "Hunks", as Jessica L. in San Diego termed it (haven't heard that term "Hunks" since I used to watch "Happy Days").

Body, Part 9, a.k.a., “She’s Got Legs” (and she knows how to use them)

I run across a great set of legs every now and then in real life. And when I see a pair cross my path like Haley's Comet, somewhat toned and/or muscular, but stopping short of a "she must be on steroids" look, I have to go up and give her a non threatening compliment. Anyhoo, […]
