All Right. Now I Really Want To Take The Kids

On my walk this morning I saw this.

It was in front of the old truck stop. So of course I had to go check it out.
It's a tiny, tiny operation. Here's the Big Top.

And as I was taking pictures, I saw some horses and thought to get a picture of them when I suddenly saw...

Oh my beating heart!

Well. I think we might just have to go to the circus tonight. 

Who says nothing ever happens in Lloyd? We have camels today! 


  1. Oh, thrilling! They will never forget going to the circus with you!

  2. I can't believe a traveling circus with an actual big top is traveling through! I thought they were all gone in favor of the carnivals with rides. you should definitely take them. Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey is quitting this year. this may be their only opportunity.

  3. oh, what fun you will all have! I have fond memories of one *big top* circus when I was about 10......a smallish one like yours. they may not be around long enough (sadly) for your great grand children to enjoy...... so I say live it up with those grands now! Can't wait to hear your thoughts and see the photos!

  4. Will it still be there tomorrow? Rachel and I want to go.

  5. I remember going to circuses when I was a wee lad.

  6. Wonderful... I was saddened to hear that Barnum and Bailey's is Closing their Circus after over a Century Plus of providing the Joy and the Magic that can be found nowhere else! How Fun to see Camels grazing in the fields! Hope you and the Children have a memorable time... Dawn... The Bohemian

  7. There is a different type of circus still out there, still touring. Google 'Pickle Family Circus'.....I've seen them several times, I knew Lorenzo, they taught me to juggle, many decades ago.

  8. From reading the last post first, it looks like you all really enjoyed it!


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
