Refilling the Well -- Circus World Trip


Today was a Circus World kind of adventure. We stopped at a casino for lunch on the way and met a Native American guy making and selling beaded jewelry, so we got this necklace for Pete's sister. We figured she'd like it better if it had a cool story to go with it, so we had the artist take a picture of us with it in the bear's mouth. The bear was named Bob. He died in 1954. (you can click on the pix for bigger images; I'll put the rest under a cut.)


Whatever we expected at Circus World, it wasn't what we found. It was HUUGE. I was drawn more toward the unrestored pieces than the restored pieces. These guys were circus wagon ornaments. They looked homoerotic to me. They were the exception rather than the rule. Most of the ornament was female, and had lots of exposed boobage.


These guys were in the restoration area. They're garbage can toppers. I'd seen them throughout the park and thought they looked pretty retro -- and now I see why. Look at that one vintage guy! I love all the slick, new, white ones next to the old crusty one.


Here's one of those big canvas signs. Maybe 15-20' high? Anyway, as if clowns aren't scary enough, this one's such a badass he's smoking.


And because we're so juvenile. We thought this ass was funny.

I'm scared to death of clowns...anything that wears a mask, truth be told. The unrestored pieces were amazing, though.

Clowns are like spiders or snakes. 75% of people are probably scared of them, to one degree or another.
