June 27-28: N. Andover, MA-2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. & 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

On Sunday we had a 6:00 a.m. call for our 53 mile jump to N. Andover. We were playing on a grass lot and it was a sunny day.
Ryan and I spent the morning making squibs while watching Child's Play 3.

There was a decent sized crowd for the first show; our table act was quite interesting. Ryan tripped over the ring mat while carrying the table in and wiped out. Then at the end of the act, I couldn't rip Delena's dress off to save my life. It was very awkward and reminiscent of past bad dates....


There was an average sized crowd for the second show. A jerk sitting front row center had his feet up on the bally cloth almost the entire performance.
When I was strutting around in the exterminator gag, I smacked his shoes off the cloth. He smirked and gave me attitude by putting them right back up.
Being the subtle performer that I am, I picked up a section of ring curb and "warned" him to take them down again.

Backstage we found out that almost everyone in the second half had been aggravated by the guy's lack of class. The Poemas made sport of it during their act, but it finally took Armando getting an elephant up close and personal to drive the point home.
The man moved back a row, but for finale he was right back in front, smiling and waving at everyone with his feet up.
At least he thought it was funny.

A big group of us went into Boston to go on a ghost tour. Part of the tour took place on a trolley, and the rest was a walking tour.
There was some interesting historical information that we learned, but some of the guides' high school theatrics were a little too much to bear.

On Monday, St. Michael's Church, where circus chaplain, Father Jerry Hogan, presides, had the show over for a luncheon.
I walked since it was just a mile up the street from the lot.

We had average sized crowds for the two shows. Ryan's friend, Lucky Bob came to the second show. That was the highlight of a pretty dismal performance.

An update on Tatiana's pregnancy, she is around 3 months along and the baby is doing fine. The baby's sex is not yet known.
