Expect changes

Expect changes

I've decided to re-order the priorities in my life, and I will soon stop posting on a daily basis.  I'm running out of ideas and unposted photos, so it's time for a change.  At least initially I will continue to post, but they will be less frequent and hopefully of better quality.  I may stop blogging entirely at some point, but that is not the plan at this time.  My dogs, my garden, reading good books, and (hopefully soon) international travel will be taking up more of my time.  I really need to do this, so I hope y'all understand.

  1. Hey buddy,
    you have given so much to so many, it's time to take care of yourself. As we've discussed before I'd like to meet with you when you are on the mainland.
    With gratitude,
    Dee Exx

  6. Hi Jerry.
    Firstly, huge thanks for all your postings. I'm always impressed at the number of them. Well done, superb work. You have certainly enlightened and informed so many of us with your extensive knowledge of the vintage male figure. You deserve to give yourself a good break, recharge, refresh. Should your travels bring you to London, I'd love to meet you. All the best, David.

    3. Hi Jerry
      I cannot really add to what everybody else has said here, except to say that I have looked forward to your posts each day since I first discovered your blog. I have learnt so much from you and also found some other excellent blogs, such as Men From Back Then.
      You deserve the break and to pursue some of your other interests. And don’t forget that I am close to London too.
      Best wishes
      Phil

  10. You have spoiled me with your daily postings, but this is obviously a full-time job for you. You need a break and to get a life, so good for you. It's good to know you aren't leaving us forever. Enjoy your time.

  11. Hi Jerry

    First of all I have to say thank you for your wonderful daily posts. I look forward to them each day and am always delighted and surprised by the variety of photos and artworks that you post. However, I can imagine that this takes up a lot of your time. If the last couple of years have taught us anything then it's where our main priorities lie so your decision makes a lot of sense.. Anyway, it's great news that you plan to carry on posting albeit on a less regular basis. Wishing you all the best.

    1. That means a lot, coming from someone as knowledgeable as you, Brian. I will still be posting regularly, just not every day, and I plan to try some different approaches. Stay tuned.

I know all the work involved, and appreciate it. Meanwhile, your plans for personal changes sound wonderful. Continued happiness and good health to you, my friend!

  15. Thank you so much for your years of effort. This is, by far and away, the best curated site offering vintage gay nudes that I am familiar with. That being said, I know this has taken an enormous amount of effort and an unflagging dedication to the process. We all deserve a break after so many years of work, no matter how much we love it. You do you. Many thanks.
