— 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.
