Mostly Wordless Wednesday: the Past and the Present

When we first moved to the Village of Peninsula, the circus train stopped outside our studio. The animals would leave the train and walk past our studio to Main Street; then they would proceed up the long hill to their venue. It was always a festive time, and the Village was packed with folks coming to see this happen. I just came across some photos from those days,  24 years ago.  It’s interesting to juxtapose that with our new direction, a piece of equipment with which we can easily roll out slabs of clay. Both parts of our lives here in the Village of Peninsula, Ohio.

As always, please feel free to leave me a comment, or a stone (o), to let me know that you’ve stopped by.

    When I was a kid, a small ramshackle circus came to our one-horse prairie town. I remember watching the elephant as it was being fed out behind the community hockey rink. It took a big dump and then stomped all over it with its hind feet. Not the best memory perhaps, but real, LOL!

    As a kid I loved the Circus….then later, as an adult, when I found out how the Elephants are so horribly mistreated, I couldn’t stand it—And I’ve never been back since1
