The circus rolled into our little town and for an evening we were taken back in time. I felt like we were characters in a book as I listened to kids talk about the tent raising and the clowns and the elephant rides. Yes, there were acrobats, tigers, camels and, of course, a juggler.
But the highlight for me, I have to admit, was when the little barking dog got to ride on the back of the pony. I had to laugh out loud at that one. Wish I had a picture but it was just too, too dark in that tent for my camera.
One night only, and then the entire circus packed up and moved on to the next town. Just like a comet in the night sky, if you don't see it this time around you might have to wait a awhile for the next one to come sailing by.
