DICK'S VISIT TO LEWIS & CLARK CIRCUS--PART 1

I decided yesterday I had to visit my friend Bob Childress , owner of Lewis & Clark Circus
They were just down US 13 at the Delaware State Fairgrounds, about
17 miles from my house.
I can't thank the show enough for rolling out the Red Carpet for Me.
Bob told me that business has been good all season.
From this spot they jumped to Chesapeake City, MD,
About a 60 mile jump from here.
They played here for two days and after the next spot they head into Pa. at
Oxford. Lewis & Clark plays quite a few dates for Promoter Ted Hill (Allan's Brother)



Ringmaster Rebecca Ostroff welcomes and opens the show!



Here she's doing her single trapeze act.
Which is the first display.
Show ran over 90 minutes with a 15 minute intermission.
At which time the kids were "invited" to Have their pictures
taken with a Python or take a camel ride.

Again I want to thank the cast and crew for the great
hospitality they showed between Me and my guests.
This was the first show I'v been to in six years.
Thanks to my new scooter!
Unfortunately I had a bit of trouble with my digital camera.
I messed up quite a few more pictures to my dismay.
