I saw a sign on the way to work the other day announcing the Ringling Bros. Circus was coming to town. Oh boy!
I remember it all fondly from my youth. The lion tamers, tight rope walkers, the big top, clowns, the ringmaster, and all the circus animals. You know the one…
The greatest show on earth!
Since I saw the circus-themed cards in the September/October 2011 issue, I’ve been itching to go to the circus. These cards really got me nostalgic.
I drove by yesterday to see how the circus tent was faring and to see when it might be open to the public. I should have instantly realized something was amiss when I saw the tent was set up in an abandoned parking lot.
I took a closer look at the sign…Strangling Brother’s Circus?!? The scariest show on earth. Awwww, the disappointment!
(I’ll never be able to look at clowns the same way again!)
I guess I’ll have to wait a little longer for the real circus! Meanwhile, I’m glad I can flip through my Paper Crafts September/October issue to get my fix.
P.S. Leave a comment telling me your favorite thing from the circus and I’ll pick one lucky winner to receive a copy of our September/October issue and the circus cards shown above! All comments must be received by midnight (MDT) on Wednesday, Sept. 14.
