(I wrote the cliff notes for this blog last night, but my computer decided to delete them. I am going off my terrible memory here.)
This morning's drive was very boring for me, and it seemed to go on forever.
Today's town was lot and license, so I was worried that no one would show up, but there was a line at the ticket window during set up.
We ended up having good business for the first show, and an average sized crowd for the second show.
I saw circus fan and blog reader, Charles Klute, in the audience, so I went out to say hello during Intermission.
The second audience was much more responsive than the first one, which was a relief. The first performance was a tough one to get through; Buckner helped by bringing me a torta from a Mexican market. He is one of my new favorite people now!
After the show Radar and I went to a bar and grill where we found Dan. We all had dinner, and I ended up answering questions for a few locals once they found out we were from the circus.
My favorite question was when they asked if Dan was the fire breather.
