“I Like Your Blog, but Without the Gay Bits”

A recent comment on a very old post with pictures of oil wrestling, slightly re-worded. I had blocked several other posts from this person because they made no sense, but I let this one go.

Well, we are what we are, and (naturally) so is the correspondent. I assume that he likes fitness and physical exercise. But since this blog is also about highlighting the gay side of life, and the love within it, maybe he is in the wrong place?

He had better not read the books, then.Cover 3 ThumbCover2 ThumbCover1 Thumb

On other matters entirely, potentially great news. The realtor handling the sale of the girls’ house in Oak Ridge has received an offer not far off the asking price. If this deal is clinched, then the girls (with a little help from us!) buy Dave’s dad’s house and our base in Tennessee is secure. We’ve also discussed cutting a deal with the girls where they could get as much use of our Welsh place free of charge (since we’re all “family” – two gay dads, two lesbian mums, two great kids…) in return for us keeping a room there… so fingers crossed for a successful resolution in 2014, with all the training facilities for ‘our’ team (acrobatics, lifters, wrestling, endurance…) secure in the future…


…with, of course, continued access to Chad’s array of resistance machines…

Leo, my son, will be 12 years old tomorrow. Knowing perfectly well what presents are stashed away awaiting him, I asked him what he most wanted to celebrate his twelfth. ‘Toughest workout ever, Dad!’ was his reply. Indeed, he wants not the ‘bumps’ which we always used to get, but twelve lashes with a leather strap across his back, to be delivered by the faithful friend Ollie, then the toughest acrobatic and weights routine we can offer him, before out comes his bed of nails and all the other stuff…. That’s my boy! We’ll probably throw him in the river after, and Ollie too…


Actually, another Welsh deluge is promised for tomorrow, so the river may come to us. And if he’s cold after that, well, his mum is a fire artiste…

As I said, we’re a weird lot, “even without the gay bits”. And we like sharing pictures of well-built guys, so here’s a few more for the end of 2013:











So, we all wish you, from Wales or Tennessee or wherever, a brilliant 2014. Share the love, gay or straight, strive to get (or stay) fit, and be healthy. And enjoy whatever you do.

I hope that you can share the passing of the year with one you love, celebrating in whatever way you choose and keeping him/her happy…


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...
