D.R. MILLER 1999 (FROM HEARTLAND SMITH)(

Hello Dick,
I finally found the D. R. Miller pix I promised to send you several months ago.
Here are three 1999 photos taken on a nearly 100 degree day in downtown Pontiac, Michigan about two months before he passed away.
One picture shows him with 3 Canadian circus fans,
one is a closeup and
one shows him looking into Carson & Barnes's biggest big top. As he stood there he said to me "it's too big". I think that in his condition he was feeling just a bit ovewhelmed by the size of the tent and the huge operation it represented. Keep up the good work.
I enjoy every one of your blogs. --Hart Smith
