No Tornados Here!

Just  quick one before we set off for our traditional Dec 26 swim and riverbank barbecue.



(And playtime in the woods, too!). Thanks to several people who heard about the tornados in Tennessee two days ago and wondered if we were affected. Happily, no we were not. They were about 200-odd miles west of here, on the edge of something known as ‘Tornado Alley’ which leads up from the south to just west of Chicago. In fact, as I write this, the temperature is due to peak at 20+C / 68F – British summer temperatures! – and the wind is negligible with no rain threatening. Just a little cloudy. So our intended skinny dipping and subsequent shirtless adventures around the fire as darkness falls maybe aren’t so weird after all…

…for now then, some random pictures on our usual themes to keep the ball rolling towards New Year.

Seems to be all trios so far! OK, I’ll add a quartet:

Two shots of four friends having fun in the woods. which reminds me – that’s where I should be headed right now…

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...
