In common with southern Europe, we’re having an early autumn heatwave. Even Wales (UK) is warm, by their standards. But that isn’t quite what I mean!
Our wayward friends Ethan and Jack are finally on their way home, having just (literally – just had the text) linked up with Karen and her truck in Oregon. She’s promised to deliver them to us as soon as possible, which probably means Sunday afternoon.
Which kind of means that Sunday evening could be kind of ‘busy’. Leon and Dane from Lexington are coming down Saturday evening in anticipation and prepared to take Monday – and possibly Tuesday – off their work. The rest of our ‘gang of ten’ will have to work a bit at the start of next week, but I feel we can fit in plenty of ‘fun’ again…
And then what, for Ethan and Jack? That’s far from clear. After almost three continuous years of acrobatic performing, they don’t have a specific plan.
I think their idea is to just ‘crash’ here for a bit, with Ethan’s parents, and then go over to Toronto for a while with Jack’s. But they are thinking about more stable jobs than being itinerant performers – we are all painfully aware that our bodies are of increasing age, and good things do not go on for ever!
