“Don’t Chase Dreams: Hunt Goals!”

That quote is all about our attitude to fitness. 20 further pictures of guys who’ve done exactly that are now posted on the Fitness, Acrobatics and Gymnastics page (https://tonycavanagh.com/fitness-acrobatics-and-gymnastics/) along with a dozen or so guys who are interacting in some way with a vest or shirt – perhaps because their gym house rules demand it. Not our style, but there you go!

Talking of fitness, I’ve posted an old advert for a healthy bedtime drink on the Gay Expression page (https://tonycavanagh.com/gay-expression/). I understand that my father, at some early point in his life, was an ‘Ovaltiney’. He didn’t entirely follow the line of the advert though, or maybe I wouldn’t be here…

We’re looking forward to having our kids with us for the period of the US school vacation (along with a couple of their friends and their mums). All of them are going to have to work for their living participating in shows both here in the vacation complex and elsewhere on the Algarve and western Spanish coastline. First time we’ve seen any of them since Christmas, so a great start to our summer!

Going to the beach? Here’s a good read to take with you and help to support the blog:

 

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...

    Love the Ovaltine ad! Growing up, Mom wouldn’t buy it, so I’m presuming the same thing can be said for Nestle’s Quik. I _do_ buy Ovaltine nowadays, so I guess you could say I use it for “maintenance”. LOL

    The Ovaltine ad is hilarious. Coming from Wales, you may not be familiar with classic American TV, but use of the word “gay” on American network television was once very common. For example, I have a dvd which contains a Bob Hope episode where the “I Love Lucy” cast switches roles. When Bob Hope’s character meets Desi Arnaz’s character, Bob comments on how “very gay” his clothes are. Similarly, Bob Hope appears in a Jack Benny episode where Jack and Bob have gone hunting in “Africa”. Back then, the only way to include gays was to make veiled references to Denmark. Bob tells Jack that he knows the tiger he killed was from Denmark. “How do you know?” Jack asks. Bob answers, “He had his hand on his hip.” Today, some might find that offensive (I hope you don’t.), but that was the only way Hollywood could include LGBTQ people in their company. So let’s continue to see the humor where it is, and in the words of the “Flintstones” theme song: “You’ll have a gay old time! (Wilma!)”.
