Cyfarchion o Gymru

816…greetings from Wales! Made it at last. Kids straight into the barn (gym) and now wrestling after being trapped in the cars for nearly three hours (Colin’s and my dad’s). Adults tidying up after the previous holidaymaking guests so  that the place looks more like home (which, for me and Dave, it kind of is, since it’s ours!). No Dave this visit, sadly, but Colin and Natasha are here and she will stay all week as it is now the first week of UK school hols.

And warm enough (just!) for shirts off as Colin attacks the neglected lawn and I will shortly follow once I’ve done this. Not exactly Caribbean temperatures and palm trees, but it will have to do:


Just as the barn gym isn’t exactly this


…but we’ll make do with what we have there, too. Maybe we can just have the boy…?

Actually, this is scheduled to be ‘boys run wild’ week whilst Jaymee and Ollie’s younger sister do more ladylike things (albeit with acrobatics training too, of course). For the boys, there’ll be plenty of this…


(appropriately dressed, I see). Maybe we’ll do a trip to the beach…


…but the river nearby looks inviting, although the water level is surprisingly low. And the weather forecast isn’t too awful… maybe we will be able to get some sun…


Now then. What else can I show you to ‘beef up’ this post? Try these:


Plenty of beef there. And here!



Let’s put some of it to good use…





(pity his tee-shirt is on, but we can admire the arm muscle)

So. A week of “fun” follows. I did wonder if I might find some time to start reviewing the text of book number 4 but, somehow, I doubt that I shall. Have to make do by re-reading the first three…

The first part...The second part...Cover 3 ThumbClicking on the covers will reveal a little more, and they’re on e-books too. Amazon can oblige.

OK, one final fitness picture then I’m on my shift with the lawnmower while Natasha prepares to feed us all. Happy holidays!


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...
