End of Term Teasers


More ‘random’ pictures today.

No gym for us this morning though – a mass visit to the sauna instead. Very pleasant given the cold temperatures here in Canada (snow forecast again for tomorrow!). Then lunch before the usual two performances.


As we near the end of the year – and there’s not much else to write about, given our fixed routine here – I’m re-introducing our ‘fitness crossword’ feature – no crossword, just the clues culled from various sources. Answers next time – except for one which I don’t know the answer to myself. So your suggestions – by comment or e-mail to gymacrobat@gmail.com – will be welcomed!

  1.  Lever in gym boy pulled up (5)
  2.  Son gets on with everything except gym kit (4,4)
  3.  Undisclosed strain stops nude wrestling (7)
  4.  Do exercises in school (5)
  5.  A glass for the acrobat (7)
  6.  Exercise before second drink (5,2)
  7.  Just outside gym, in full view of everybody (6)
  8.  Wrestling’s not finished – that’s the problem (3)
  9.  Force prisoners to exercise (9)
  10.  Gym teacher taking public transport with hesitation (7)

In addition to the one I do not have the answer to, there is one other whose answer I do not fully understand. And I thought I was quite good at this ‘fitness’ stuff!

For the moment, I leave you to work out which are the two ‘problem’ questions!





















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...
