I thought the right off the lot was hwy 235 BUT it was Fairground Rd and my journey took me on the pink line. I was supposed to basically just get on I-70 east.
My big adventure took me ONLY an extra 6 miles. It was very hilly and exciting!!
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 !!
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!!
Today is day 5 of the mighty Kelly Miller Circus 2017 season.
We started out with a couple of life lessons on axels. On the bright side opening day was NOT thigh high mud AND everyone made it!
We have a lot of production costumes this year! A new back door curtain, bob cat tractor/forklift, a new winch and a bunch of fun improvements. We have brought back the new and improved Lovely Luawanna Lady featuring Wendy Bell ! I am spinning by my teeth in the opening of the show.
Enjoying a clean laundromat and even more entertaining is my photo of my favorite food #gasstationsushi!! I have only blown the arrows once. So far so good.
I have been a terrible blogger. There is always something to blog about when you are dealing with death defying rigging. Ringmaster, yogi, wife and mother are very interesting but it seems desperate to blog about these things. I guess I miss my identity of Becky the aerialist more than being an aerialist. Actually I still am practicing my act, hanging by my teeth and toes etc.
Winter in Sarasota is always eventful !!
I pick up some catering gigs at Michael's on East, whenever I work with the LEGEND Rietta we get in trouble for chit chat.. We have so much fun taking a traditional toe point photo. We are so pleased with our latest endeavor we decided we are going to Vegas baby.

I saw a photo of Steve and Ryan, super clowns and was quite pleased that Marshall and my costume from Halloween 2013 might have been inspirational in their costuming ( except for the Siamese twin part ) photo of Marshall and me by Sue Harber
We went to Albert Vonderheid's memorial on the 28th of December. This was so lovely, listening to stories and sharing our love for Albert, Anita, Susan and Maria .
Smiley Jack Daly's memorial was December 27 ! An amazing time sharing stories and honoring this clown, welder, designer, inventor, story teller man about town. The AMAZING Sladek and I did the traditional toe point. photo by Marshall
