Lot: Tate School Grounds
Shelby and I both had rough starts this morning. Even taking a nap and "starting the day over" didn't help very much. Luckily by the time the shows rolled around, everything was going more our way.
Our friend, Karen Lukes, a former circus clown, came to the first show with her kids, a friend, and her friend's kids. Karen made delicious cookies for me and Ryan to share; thank you, Karen!
It was another hot day, and the heat really took it out of both me and Ryan. We really had to try hard for the second show; both of us were wiped out and just a tad delirious as well.
Here we are with a couple of our fans in Bethel:
Caden, who was wearing an Incredible Hulk shirt, hence our poses
And baby Landon. Believe it or not, this was his first circus!
After the shows I was getting cleaned up when there was a knock on my door. It was a young man named Nicholas who has been clowning for the past four years.
He and his mother came back to find me after the show to learn more about working for a circus.
I gave them a brief synopsis, and then I gave Nicholas one of our postcards listing our website, blog, and Facebook addresses. I always enjoy helping then next generation!
I would have liked to have talked with Nick and his mom longer, but we had to drive to the next town.
The lot in Bellbrook is next to a school, and we need to be there very early in the morning. Therefore, it was decided to do the jump tonight.
On the way out of town we encountered a very nasty wreck. One car had its front bashed up and the other was farther away and upside down!
It was definitely a sobering reminder that the road can be very dangerous.
Luckily Shelby and I made it to Bellbrook safely, and after a long day I was definitely ready to get some sleep.
