Lot: Lions Rodeo Grounds
Harry Kingston was on the lot this morning to greet the show as it arrived. We caught up for awhile while I unhooked my truck and set up my duck habitat.
He was nice enough to bring a delicious cake that his wife made (Harry is a lucky man), as well as a book on Ringling in the tented days that I had never seen before.
Thank you very much, Harry!
I drove into town to go to the post office and to find a baby duck. Unfortunately Tractor Supply Company was out of them.
While I was driving around I was scanning through the radio stations, looking for some good music.
On one station I heard a man talking, and I thought to myself, "Self, that guy sounds an awful lot like Armando."
Sure enough, it WAS Armando giving an interview to the mayor himself via a live radio feed at the circus.
I had such a great performance for the first show, but then for some reason I was in a terrible mood for the second show.
Luckily talking with people at Intermission put me in a much better humor, and I ended the night on a more positive note.
I'm going to take the day off from blogging tomorrow since it is a "day off". Today was a travel day, but I blogged anyway because I'm just that awesome.
Please enjoy these wonderful photos of the lot that Chris Hamblen took from a helicopter in Jasper.
Thank you, Chris!
