Travels with the circus - day 163, 60 days left

I am in Michigan, I have come to the realization that I can not blog on my iPhone.
Today we embark on shows 311/312. This is our 138th town. This am we drove 105 miles . this part of the planet always amazes me, at night ink drips on the sky and it becomes black. In the morning we can see the sun and the moon at the same time . We have 2 more full moons before the corn is high and it is time to go home. we have just experienced the hottest summer on record . Sweaty and stinky it was, I had to hand wash my jacket every other day . Yesterday was under 80f, it was so nice to be cool. We didn't have to set up all the big fans in the tent and I used only 1 for the aerial acts .

In Romeo, MI Bill Creed gave me a treasure, a beautiful jewelry box his dad made and his mom lined with felt . He stopped making them in 1995, they are numbered and inlayed with pennies . He made about 418 . I am the proud owner of 419 .

The top photo is of Bill and 2 town folk who enjoyed the tour in the rain ( my Ikea umbrella) and the woman in the marquee is shooting a television spot of Bill interviewing me about the circus. It looks like it was cool but it was raining and actually turned out to be another extremely warm day.
