Mice at Play…

“When the cat’s away…”


Yesterday my parents took the three boys off for the day to visit an amazing steam railway, The Welsh Highland


(well worth a visit, along with its partner railway the Ffestiniog, by the way – Wales has several of these restored lines and they are fascinating) – however…

David and I home alone! But not for long. Tom and Iestyn, gay friends from the town, up for the day (one is a teacher and on vacation anyway and the other took a day off from his computers).

They share our love of fitness…


…love hitting our weights…


…love getting their kit off for wrestling…


getting closer

…getting wet with it…


…in short, all the things we do (although they’re not really acrobats/gymnasts – their sport is squash).

Naturally, four gay guys getting together to do that stuff get very horny, and we can share with them pretty much everything gay guys do up to but excluding the ‘final act’ – which we keep strictly between the two couples. Dave and I because we are sworn to keep it that way within a select group of ten individuals; Tom and Iestyn because they respect that.

So, we could say that we took FULL advantage of being up here in the hills, with a basic gym set up in the barn; we locked the barn door and set the crafty little red light just to warn any of the local lads who come up here that it would be a strictly clothes-free scenario if they chose to join us. Actually, no-one showed up!

Cover1 ThumbCover2 ThumbCover 3 ThumbThe business of establishing that ‘select group’ – within which we enjoy the full range of gay activity in compete confidence of freedom from STDs – is all explained in this first of my books. The continuing adventures involving our circus lifestyle which we enjoyed at the time, and some brushes with darker, menacing things, come in the other two volumes. How Dave and I come to have kids is also there.

Commercial over, then:

One thing we don’t have here (or back at the ranch in TN for that matter) is a sauna. Can’t afford it, and it would have very limited use here I suspect… but great for sitting and thinking !?


Well, we can dream! Like him! Bars for pulling up and working out on… well that’s no problem!


Space is not an issue here, although we’re unlikely to erect a boxing/wrestling ring…


That guy looks very determined, given how small the weight is that he is curling… But it’s all about THE LOOK, isn’t it:


Bulk isn’t everything! – on which point…


However… most guys make some gains fairly soon!


A smooth all-rounder – that’s what we need for acrobatics…

Maybe a bit more bulk for wrestling!

Anyway’s, four reasonably slim gay guys had an awesome day together yesterday when we had the place to ourselves: today, as I write this, the boys are on the grass out back in the rain, wrestling around… in Speedos. I swear they would all go shirtless and barefoot full time, if they could. Grandma (my mum) looks balefully out of the kitchen window at them (and at her grandson Leo in particular) and shakes her head. Perhaps she never fully understood boys – of any generation!

Tomorrow Dave disappears to visit his mum and dad who live (separately – see the books) near Keswick in the English Lake District. My parents disappear also, to be replaced by Ollie’s mum Natasha, whilst his dad Colin works the weekend so he gets days free next week to join us.

And before long, it will be up sticks and back to the States: the boys’ school there re-starts in mid August.

Enjoy your summer every which way!






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...
