Saturday, August 31: Schererville, IN-2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Lot: St. Michael's Church
It was nice to sleep in this morning since we jumped to Schererville last night. It was also nice to have a two day stand; our last one was at the beginning of the month on Kelleys Island.
We had thunderstorms on and off until show time, but then the sun came out and made it incredibly muggy.
Rick Purdue and his wife were at the first performance today. Radar told me that Rick was taking tiger photos for next year's program since Illinois locales are a lot more picturesque than some of the lots Kelly Miller plays in the Rio Grande Valley.
In between shows we had a two hour break because the church next door had an afternoon service. They pushed the performance back so people coming to the circus could use the church parking lot.
After the shows the usual gang of suspects met for a barbecue by Radar's house. Elisa made delicious buffalo chicken dip that I filled up on before our actual meal.
Sunday, September 1: Schererville, IN-2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Ryan and I met a little girl at Intermission that said she wants to be a clown when she grows up. Ryan and I spent some time answering her and her dad's questions.
They remembered the surfing act from last year, which is funny, because someone else brought it up at one of yesterday's shows. We always enjoy hearing when we've made a lasting impression on someone.
Ryan and I also met an 87 year old man during Intermission that said he's seen lots of circuses, but Kelly Miller is his favorite.
