Bog Standard

I don’t have photos on this I’m afraid, but some news from wild Wales (where we own a cottage): following the Olympic Games, the nearby town of Llanwrtyd Wells has held the ‘World Alternative Games’: bog snorkelling (with and without a bicycle), wife carrying (in the bog), husband dragging (don’t ask) and many more. This news comes from the family that are currently renting our place for their vacation: they say that the games went off extremely well and that a huge (?? come on, it’s in the middle of nowhere) crowd enjoyed the spectacle. Sadly, we haven’t been able to get there for over a year and, short-term, it doesn’t seem likely. Never mind, the place is being well looked after.

The nearest thing I can find to a bog is the river for our pictures:

Now there’s an idea: headstands on the river! And a handstand by the river, on your friend’s stomach. Why not?

And, my goodness, what you can get up to on a quiet beach…

Did everyone forget their Speedos? obviously not quite everyone:

Ah – the handstand. Here’s a really stylish beach handstand pic:

A beach show-off…

And now time for me to show off: the following tales of finding gay love, developing acrobatic shows, circus tours and getting into trouble are worth a look:

Loving the Boy: ISBN 978-1-907732-30-0

The Power of Love: ISBN 978-1-907732-41-6

Against All Odds: ISBN 978-1-908645-35-7

Hope you will check out those books. And, for today’s finale, an unusual handstand contribution keeping the water theme…
