Welcome to the Blog!

Tony Cavanagh welcomes you to his world of books (first and foremost!) and to the things he loves best on the other pages here. After six blogging years, I’m having something of a reorganisation and culling many old posts and associated images to make room for new things. This blog home page offers more information about my books and will also signpost additions to the ‘Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics‘ pages (see Index) and also to the ‘Gay Expression‘ page – these being the themes which run through my first three books. Purchasing books helps to support the blog, and most readers rate them well!

Before we get there, there is a fourth book published October 2017 and a fifth half completed. So let’s start with the most recent offering:

A ‘reluctantly’ gay boy, cast out of his community for discovering his sexuality… can he find the true meaning of his life and his true love, or does fate have more s*** in store for him? Best classified as ‘Romantic Fiction’, I think, the book explores Native American beliefs as his shape-shifting ‘spirit guide’ struggles to make things right for him. Darker influences are also at work, however, and his life holds many surprises and disappointments before the final dénouement. Click on the cover for a link to buy direct, and support this blog… e-versions of all the books are also available. And, if  you must, because they don’t pay the author much, there is Amazon…

Three earlier books, written in the first person, chart the life and times of a British teen relocated to the USA who quickly finds another like-minded exiled Brit with whom he shares a love of acrobatic sports and, very shortly after, with whom he shares his gay love. Surrounded by a caring group of sporting (and mainly gay) friends, things nevertheless start to go badly wrong and there are clearly people around who do not wish them well. They discover a life as a touring show… and also a future life as gay dads, but there is much else waiting in store for them before they can be ‘happy ever after’…

 

 

 

Notice too that these covers combine locations of the stories combined with acrobatic images and some Chinese characters: the significance of these emerges early in the first book.

NOTE ADDED DEC 2018! THE PUBLISHER OF THESE FIRST THREE BOOKS WENT BANKRUPT! THEY ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE VIA THE LINKS I HAVE FREQUENTLY POSTED IN THIS BLOG, AND I AM IN THE PROCESS OF DELETING THOSE LINKS. THE BOOKS, HOWEVER, ARE STILL AVAILABLE – FROM ME. PLEASE DO CONTACT ME AT gymacrobat@gmail.com IN THE FIRST INSTANCE AS THIS WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPORT THE BLOG.

So there we are – welcome. Scroll down for the latest posts, or cross to the other pages for Fitness, Acrobatic and Gymnastics images –  a lifestyle we enthusiastically support – or to Gay Expression for  occasional musings and images related to the gay lifestyle. You will not find porn here.

This blog is also for guys who admire other guys who put real effort into their physical development. On that ‘fitness’ page I encourage you to think how good the fitness lifestyle is for you. The rules are simple:

  1. Make an effort to improve your own fitness this year (you’re NEVER too old);
  2. Enjoy the pictures (and comment please on what you see, and feel free to ‘FOLLOW’);
  3. Buy a book (preferably, all of them) to support the continuation of the blog!

AND: you can even try combining the reading with your workout!

The blog is essentially G-rated; the earlier books get a little explicit from time to time about gay guys doing what gay guys do – you don’t have to be gay to enjoy them – just be gay-friendly. 

And now, as they used to say on the old TV game shows: “Come on Down!”⇓ or alternatively Sideways (to the other pages!)

*** Many pictures  on all of the pages… like the one on the left illustrating what we love to do… will sticky-2-readenlarge if you click on them ***

Two Types of ‘Gym’

There’s ‘gym’ as in GYMNASTICS (as above – see latest update on the Gymnasts Gallery #1 page) – and ‘gym’ as in “lifting those weights or bodyweight” – as below:

And, to finish, gymnasts in the weights area. Double for your money!

Blame Brexit

Sorry for lack of posts. Been dealing with some pre-Brexit issues (like my passport won’t let me back into Portugal (where we live at the moment) after October 31st if UK leaves with ‘no deal’)… enough! Some nice boys today to cheer us all up.

(I like boys who read….. HINT!)

That Special Bond…

…two guys can have fun together in various ways, but often, the look on their faces can say that ‘two guys together’ means something special. It doesn’t have to be love – though, when it is, the CARING AND SHARING is extra special (and I’ve added 22 more couples on that page to make the point!). As to the rest in this post, it is what they are doing together that makes the bond – a shared experience or activity. Enjoy.

(It took us a while to notice the handcuffs…)

Bodyweight (And More!)

Never underestimate the value of bodyweight exercises (even though you can add some more weight – like the additional 50kg added here!) – any street-workout guy will confirm! Let’s enjoy some guys who have been ‘called to the bar’: the next also with more weight:

Doesn’t have to be outside:

That one’s a great leg stretch at the same time as building the shoulders and back!

OK, back outside!

Close Encounters

Some friends like to get real close!

Shirts off and barefoot when lads get together is common. There is often a bit of a roughhouse! These lot are going a little bit further. Feet are obviously kept pretty clean these days.

An odd position on the running machine, for sure! More understandable as a forfeit at the end of a wrestle bout:

Dave and I do have this thing about feet.

Sorry. One more on this theme and then we’ll move on:

And finally, can’t resist this one:

Back to ‘normal’ for the next post.
