Flu Boo Hoo…

Still not in the best of humour here. Flu won’t go away (another marathon sweaty sleep yesterday, but only 12 hours) and on the one occasion I ventured back to the gymnastics center because of a severe coach shortage (yeah, flu!) I sprained my already weak leg leaning out from the platform to push boys around the high bar in giant swings. Arrgh! This is stopping being an unfortunate event and is starting to become an epic. Dave still queasy too, but back at work; Clare more or less recovered along with Jaymee, so there is hope, at least for the young ones.

I’ll just upload some pictures and that will be ‘it’ for today.

Thoughts of summer training with ‘the pack’ – into a front planche:

Doesn’t look as though this next guy is going to need help with his high-bar routine…


…nor this one with his planche:


…and so, back to bed (I know it’s a silly time, but it is all I have the energy for at the moment). Hopefully normal service will resume before long…

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...
