— Six Word Saturday — My Alphabe-Thursday — "K" — Things in a Row — Two Questions — MidWeek Blues
my Six Words:
"K" is for KP, our youngest grandchild.
"K" is for KP goes to the circus.
This was KP's first circus. For months she had been saying, "I'm going to America to see Mimi and Papa and the CIRCUS!" KP lives in London with daughter Karen (Karen on the run) and her family.
KP loved it!
This was the Ringling Brothers, Barnum, and Bailey Circus. The best in the world was our expectation. It was a great circus but didn't quite meet our expectations. We were expecting TRAPEZE ARTISTS, DOGS WITH SOME CLOWNS, BEARS, and an old CLOWN CAR FULL OF CLOWNS. Those items came to mind as MISSING.
KP doesn't know that the old circus used to have these acts. Ringling Bros. might have these in another troupe, but you would think that the 4th largest city (Houston, Texas) in the United States would have at least most of these. What else was missing?

— My Two Questions for this week (you can answer just one if you wish):
1. What do you remember about the last time you went to the circus?
My first circus was in Fremont, Nebraska. The eight of us in the one room school were driven with our teacher and a few parents, who were driving us in their cars. That trip was about 35 miles from our Herman country school over to Fremont. I do remember the Clowns exiting from their CLOWN CAR.
First time I've seen circus when I was in Elementary. It's so amazing seeing horses and elephants!ヾ( ￣▽)
I don't remember my first time seeing a circus.
Your granddaughter is cute, and looked as if she had fun.
Thanks Jim for the link, and I don't mind link like that, as it doesn't make my page go wonky!
KP is adorable. I believe you had a much better time than I did.
Haven't been to a circus for so long, but since I have a 6 years old, that time will come soon enough for us to experience.
My daughter was terrified of clowns at this age..as for me...I love the circus...but the hay makes me sneeze ;)
Great, great pictures. I have not been to the circus from since my youth. I do enjoy the animal kingdom on TV. Thanks for sharing sir.
The only time I've been to the circus was when I was in grade school. I can't remember too much about it, other than some vague memories of animals and circus clowns, ballons & cotton candy. But, a sense of funness lingers on the shelves of mind and that's why I want to return to the circus someday!
Great 'K' post!
Just making my daily blog hop rounds. I hope you'll decide to join in today's post: Krispy Kreme & Images of a Summer Night Have a good day!
PS: Verification is still on...
The kids and I have watched it on television though.
thanks for your visit & have a great day.
By the way, I'm guessing you were referring to the image with the guy on his horse on the bridge...if you click on the image you'll see it's just a guy with his dog, no donkey cart! :) Have a great day!
KP is adorable and I'm so glad she got to visit the circus.
1. I think we went last year or earlier this year. It was interesting. I think for the kids it was more interesting. That was my only time visiting a circus.
2. I only went once with the kids.
I think for an adult it can lose it's flair.
3. I think anywhere with animals, we as humans have a responsibility to take care of them. If they are in the circus then we who work with them should use the finances gain in the work to take care of them and the company.
I went to both, Ringling Brothers - with my boys when they were young. Cirque de Soleil in San Jose with a date, and the other one was the O Show, in Vegas.
They were all spectacular to me. I don't know how those people work so hard, so flexible, so balanced, so skillful, etc.
I would never have picked the circus to go to if it was just me. I think sharing the experience with a child is beyond words though.
Mine is here
Your little gal is sure cute. I can tell you enjoy her very much. That circus looks like fun. All of the pictures makes me want to go! I haven't been to a circus in years. I went with our first grandson when he was very young, and he will soon be 22 years old! I guess it's time to find one and go!

WOW... you are really busy.... hope you are enjoying the "Karen" visit!
The only thing that I remember about my first circus is that there were lions! : )
She is gorgeous! I love the look of shy innocence and fascination on her face.
Gosh. What an inKredibly sweet little girl!
Thanks for sharing her, and her outing, with us!
