By the time you read this, Dave and I, my son Leo and his best friend Chris should be in UK.
My good doctor friend Nate insisted on mapping out my blood flow and pressure in both legs and arms yesterday – eight measurements plus listening to the blood pulsing around my veins through a loudspeaker. This is a guy who wrestles me naked at every opportunity, then turns absurdly professional in his calling when he has me flat out on his table in his office! Thanks, mate. I’m now going to be in the care of ‘Gwasanaeth Iechyd Gymru’, the Welsh health service, which as a Brit I can still get free treatment. Hopefully just monitoring blood levels once or twice as my left leg continues to diminish in size.
Boys to spend a few days in Oxford living at my parents whilst spending time with their other great fitness/gymnast pal Ollie (still absurdly at school, four weeks after the US kids got out for the summer) – Dave and I go more or less straight off to our place in Wales. The next four weeks are ‘all mapped out’ too. Fun and relaxation; Ollie’s family joining us at the weekend.
So: let’s celebrate a ‘fit’ summer break!
I hope that your summer break is also ‘All Mapped Out’. We just need the British weather to cooperate now – drizzling rain as we landed in London but higher temperatures are promised.
I have some important reading to do, also. And, of course, I offer the three volumes shown here (click on for details) for your enlightenment regarding gay love, acrobatics-circus stuff and some adventure, should you need some beach reading yourselves! And, who knows, I may complete a bit more of the new book.
Whatever you do this summer, be sure to enjoy yourselves!
