I will avoid saying what I really think about all the PETA and "animal rights" movements. I think you did a really good job of tactfully expressing the issue in your second video.
The first video was delightful and made me chuckle several times. You're an entertainer at heart and a very good one. Your passion to entertain comes shining through in all of your videos I've viewed, regardless of the topic.
"One of these days" it would be a pleasure to meet you and have a campfire visit.
I have a had a few of them trolling my video. They are relentless. Some called the animals I worked with "performing ias slaves" Then I looked at her You Tube sight and she has a collection of Lassie that she favorites. Just goes to show ya'. I called her out.
Great videos, Shug! Thanks for the peeks into circus life! You shore dun married a purty gal!
Circus folk tend to stay together. We have for 31 years of marriage.
I can say as a railroader who sees Ringling Bros. pass thru a couple times a year, and tie up in the yard for a week when they are performing at the Prudential Center It is going to be sad to watch the circus go. Railroaders love tradition and this has to be one of the oldest on the railroad. The army of people who make it happen from the circus are something to see they all know their job and swarm the train like termites to get it unloaded and over to the show. They load up in the dark on Sunday after the last show and are usually gone when I come in on Monday morning. T.J.
I loved the whole train experience. We called the last night "Move Out Night"
Thanks for your thoughts.
