Hot, and its Going to Get Hotter!

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!



Meanwhile, don’t be too surprised if this blog goes quiet for a few days. As I say, there is a lot of catching up to do, every which way! “Tuan Jie rules, OK?”



And I guess there#ll be a few comparisons to be made… find out who can still do what


As for what this is all about… you’ll find it all here:

The first part...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

So, while we ‘gird our loins’ for the days to come, let me share some more excellent physiques with you… starting with our own (British!) gymnastics star Max Whitlock:










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...
