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 ***

Just a Quickie…

We’re about to be traveling again for a few days, headed back to Europe for another (final?) season in Portugal. So may be off line for a few days, at least as far as this blog is concerned.

To keep you happy…

When We’re with Our Mates…

Camaraderie! Individual shirtlessness seems to get a very bad press these days, especially in USA where we are visiting. However, get two or more guys who are close friends together and the shirts tend to come off, especially in private – more relaxed, no particular implications… parties are an example, too, when the lads take off their tops to impress the girls I suppose. And, of course, some sports situations lead to the same result. Locker-room photos a specialty! And arms around the shoulders need signify nothing except “we’re great mates”.

Closer friends – sleep-overs?? – are often very comfortable just in their undies when hanging out in their rooms. Going barefoot often too. Here we celebrate these trends, which mostly have little to do with sexuality by the way. I try to avoid the obvious underwear ads, but some may slip through the net. enjoy.

(Actually, they’re twins, so I’m cheating a bit…)

(Two sets twins?)

The final two pictures are both acrobatic duos, where confidence and trust in each other are essential!

To enjoy gay couples, where love gets involved, visit the CARING AND SHARING page on this site. And then visit the rest.

California Dreamin’

Dave and I are in SoCaL with our old mates Zach and Gary, plus Zach’s half-brother Emilio and his wife (yes!). Any readers of my books will be surprised to know not only that Zach and Emilio are still talking, but that Emilio is married. Pleased to find out that Zach and I can still balance on each other’s heads on one arm – wonder how long that will last!

SoCal sun can bring out the best in boys…

although right now it is very cloudy and not too warm either. We’re taking a break, as you will gather, before returning to Portugal for what may well be our final stint at the vacation centre. We’ll see.

Meanwhile, in other news, I have updated WRESTLING GALLERY #2 and CARING AND SHARING, so go check those pages out. Some examples:

And now, just a few more excellent boys who may have befitted from Californian sunshine!

The Muscle Farm

Just been reading ‘The American Gods’ by Neil Gaiman, in which a gym establishment called Muscle Farm gets a couple of mentions: the ‘hero’ expects to get a job there upon leaving jail but it all goes spectacularly pear-shaped… Anyway, here is a large collection from a particular ‘Muscle Farm’ – I am unsure about copyright here so, if I am infringing something, please comment and I will do the necessary at once.

Flyies?? Oh well!

Can think of a better name for that, too…

Must be the first time I have devoted an entire post to one guy. However, he probably deserves it for putting up with all the photography! And the effort put in previously has clearly paid off… I assume he is ‘Omar Talki’ unless that is the name of the gym owner. Any information welcome: these came off Facebook.
