To Let: Penthouse Apartment with Great Views…

…Great Views… into the gym!

For the last twelve years that we’ve been members of Chad’s amazing private gym facility, he has lived on the premises in a state-of the art apartment overlooking all the activities, both through viewing windows and with CCTV as well. No-one minds that: it is good for security and everyone likes to look good on TV!

…whilst it is probably in Chad’s interest, knowing the ‘interests’ of our predominantly gay group, to be able to observe what everyone is getting up to…

For those same twelve years, a second penthouse ‘flat’ has been occupied by Ed and Ryan, members and lifters but also professional photographers and media guys, responsible for keeping the group’s photo archive and computer systems together and also responsible for getting Dave and I and our mates for some time into the video business – training and acro pics, and then deeper in to the, erm, ‘entertainment’ side of things. Happy to say, with the benefit of hindsight, that those vids and DVDs are all ‘out of print’ now, before anyone asks…

Ed and Ryan are finally moving on, with some regrets from all of us. Starting a new venture in Baltimore. So their space is available. “Suit couple, preferably gay”… certainly gay, considering what they’ll see from their balcony overlooking the training hall! Chad’s first thought was to offer it to Dave and I: highly tempted, but we do have our own fantastic training cabin in Dave’s father’s yard, and his dad seems happy to entertain us for ever. And there is a housekeeper who cooks… nah. We stay put. Do our own thing, along with our mates, in a discreet space…

No Dave, you clown, that’s NOT what I meant. Stop messing with my computer! Wrong picture. But fun. Leave it in…

I still meant gym and lifting, but on a smaller scale…

…plus our own little private outdoor area, which Chad’s doesn’t offer, for general clowning around when we need to let off steam…

Chad suggested we could commute back there, and offered us a very generous deal, but….. nah.

His next idea was the two twins who just joined the group and are looking for a place. But they’re straight, so they’de want to bring girls back and, given the nature of Chad’s group… nah again!

Suddenly, problem solved. Zach and Gary are going to take the penthouse over, and the twins can take over their house share. Brilliant solution, with our mates in the penthouse we can stay there whenever we want… Tuan Jie for ever, up on the ‘shelf’ over the training hall. Wow!

 There’s a heap more about Chad, his gym facility, and what goes on there, in these two… I was going to say ‘slim’ but they’re rather fat actually… volumes. Enjoy!

 And now, today’s

About tonycavanagh

Born Northampton UK; school Oxford UK and Oak Ridge Tennessee, where I met my wonderful partner Dave, also from UK. Oak Ridge is our main training base for acrobatics and circus stuff, but we also established a base in Wales (UK) to serve us when we are working in Europe. Our 'story', of finding gay love, learning the acrobatics trade and then of how we got shot at during our show (and worse was to follow - just to prove that the risks of being an acrobat are not always the most obvious ones!) are now available in my three books 'Loving the Boy', 'The Power of Love' and 'Against All Odds'. Links available on most blog posts. Actually, waiting for the imminent arrival of the first printed copies was far scarier than anything we do in performance. A fourth book - not about us but exploring the sadness of a gay Native American boy denied his true identity - is currently with an agent for evaluation. watch for 'Let The Future Find Me' in due time. And now to book five... another boy, another quest... seems its always boys...
