Thanksgiving! Holiday? What Holiday?

Ha! No rest for the wicked, as they say. As a Brit, I’m not really into the US ‘Thanksgiving’ thing, and when you are on a tour in the entertainment business, the pace racks up somewhat! Such is life in … Continue reading

‘What a Difference a Day Made…’

…and about 200 miles going south! Mid-60s temp (~17C), sun, no rain…a chance for a bit of this… Someone said we have passed under the jet stream and are now on the ‘good’ side of it. Long may that last. And … Continue reading

“The Rain, it Raineth ev’ry Day…”

…or so it seems! That’s a line from a song by William Shakespeare, but I can’t remember which play. Never mind. The deluge here in Oregon has lessened somewhat, but todays’ ‘take-down’ of the circus tentage and getting on the road … Continue reading

Apres Nous Le Deluge

It’s raining. In principle, we enjoy being outside in the rain. Swimming is good, since the rain makes no difference. Also, running, shirtless (of course) or doing something else physical.  Warm, gentle rain, against the skin… wow! However, we have in … Continue reading

Barefoot Bacteria: NS3

It’s 4am, below freezing outside (and inside) our touring bus here at the circus, I can’t sleep, so I’m writing another post – not exactly another rant like the past two, but certainly thoughts on another issue of boy/gay behaviour … Continue reading

You Don’t Have to be Gay…

… to be a ‘paedophile’… Just a granddad of 70! Sorry, but my rant against collective hysteria begun yesterday continues. Bigotry not just against gay men, but any man; the madness is spreading and now any “unaccompanied man” is being seen … Continue reading

World News = ‘Gay News’, Apparently

Chilling out between training and shows here on the circus tour in Oregon, I’ve finally had a chance to catch up on events in the outside world thanks to my e-subscription to newspapers from my country (UK) and local stuff. … Continue reading

Mad About the Boy (and Girl)

The circus boss watched our training yesterday morning quite critically (I thought) and then, afterwards, ‘Tone, can I see you in the office?’ ‘WTF,’ I thought to myself, exchanging looks with the rest of the team. The ‘office’ is a … Continue reading

The Meat in the Sandwich

This is another of those post titles that’s going to be taken several ways! Because most of our shows here in the circus are early evening, the company feeds us our main meal at lunch time – so we train in … Continue reading
