If you joined the Circus, which act would you like to train for and perform?
I had a fleeting desire once in grade school, I wanted to be a clown on the high wire.
I am also prone to get the Circus, Fair and Carnivals confused. Of those three what is the most interesting things you have seen there? For me it was a Fair I think, and in Albemarle, NC. I saw a man tie his long hair in a knot hook a steel comb in it. The comb had an eye hook attached and he was hooked to a big truck. He backed up and slowly pulled that truck with his hair.
I have wondered about that a lot, I bet that dude did not go bald!
I guess all those games of toss the balls or hoops were fixed some way. They looked so simple to do but I could never hook that little Beretta pistol or switch blade knife. I always won a shell bracelet, a miniature stuffed toy or a candy bar. LOL
For a few years we had a few days camping trip with all our grand kids in the area.
We went to Kings Mt. State park, then to the Cleveland County Fair. We and the kids had a ball.
We also ate well. Nephew Ted and his Crew were always making and selling great BBQ at one of the booths.
Yeah, looking back I shoulda took a couple years off and did the Circus. LOL
