Sheep show/human animal bond


Sheep are quite beautiful. I strolled around and thought of picking up all the wool.We are sharing the grounds with a sheep show. The grass lot where we are showing  is pretty soggy. Not a day to strut in heels.

Fridman is welding new boxes for the new "shop truck". My truck is now the shop truck and I am moving to the air conditioned prop truck. 

Jeremiah made split peas soup and he saved me this !! 

It is all about the ring.


Luis is manicuring and perfecting the ring.

Sometimes some of yesterday's town gets rolled up in the tent and comes to the next town.

The challenge of gravel, nothing says I love your feet like sawdust (especially if you way 9,000 pounds).

The luxury of circus life

If you have experienced a traveling tented show you are a very fortunate individual.
Standing in the tent smelling the perfumes of spring is an elixir.

The unnatural and natural disaster tour

Father Whittington Archdiocese of Indianapolis, he was the guest ringmaster!

Osgood Grub company . This yummy restaurant was really close to the lot.
This year has been filled with  many challenging  events, flooded towns, rolled and totaled trucks and trailers, a smushed trailer due to improper driving and an altercation with a deer that left a truck undriveable for a few days.The saddest is the beloved shop truck and all the tools. rip rescue ranger truck. On the bright side the humans involved only had a few bumps and bruises. The sun is out and it is sunny!!

Vonderheid

Susan Vonderheid came by for some circus life. She has the family 1989 dodge with 1/2 a million miles!! We all were coveting this truck.

Susan brought a collection of miscellaneous supplies. Some of Albert's treasures that she and Anita were ready to part with.

I am now the proud owner of some Albert Vonderheid tools..I can stop using my kitchen utensils for repair.

Gas station sushi

Who would have ever imagined gas station sushi?
Melted transmission 
Sawdust and spangles and mystery grounds

Early April 2017

Sometimes
 I get muddy and I forget about it till showtime 

One day I made hard boiled eggs and I got carried away, what a magical smell.
