A Less Dangerous Place…?

More stupid terrorist stuff in Europe – London this time. Meanwhile Trump fails (again) to keep certain Muslim travellers out of the US. It does seem that Muslim ‘clerics’ (the fave word for Muslims inciting violence – I wouldn’t grant them the apparent respect that the word implies) are still out to get us infidels. I wish that they might realise that there are more rewarding ways of spending their time than chanting meaningless scripted phrases to a mythical being in the clouds. Oh well.

Where Dave and I are moving for work reasons later this year, they haven’t (so far as I know) experienced terrorism since their revolution in the 70s. Let’s hope it stays that way!

I want this post to celebrate guys having great times together and enjoying the company of others rather than being adversaries (I don’t include wrestling as ‘adversaries’ – that’s fun anyway and both participants know it). Despite this, the first four do indicate a little minor warfare in the form of gutpunching, which (in moderation) can be fun too if you are suitably prepared, since you feel rather good about receiving it afterwards. But remember that Houdini, when unprepared, ruptured his spleen and died. So go carefully!

And then the wrestling…

Kick-boxing, even…?

Mates, almost certainly, despite appearances! After all, no-one forces you to wrestle! Now, a little less aggression…

And a little more ‘aggression’ (??) to finish off. Don’t really think they mean it, though…



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...
