    Christopher Clown What the Seuss??!

    I had a great time in Indianapolis... it was fun seeing Knute, Squire, and the one and only Beth Grimes.

    It feels good to be back home visiting. I got home on Dec 5th. On January 5th I'll fly to Miami to continue with the second year of the tour.

    Jozo... hopefully I'll see you with the 143rd. Red show does the odd editions!

    Well after a fantastic month at home with family and friends... I am back on the tour... We had a great 2 week opening in Miami... we just opened our show in SC... and next week we are in my home state-- TN -- thats where things go full circle for me... Two years ago in Nashville I saw my very first circus... The Red Unit Zing Zang Zoom... there I met a lot of the clowns I currently work with for the first time. Thats where I really caught the circus bug... I haven't been the same since, and dear lord I hope I never recover.

    It's nice to hear from someone who's on the train. Are you getting any dukie bags? Circus folks here (NC-Wilkes Co. & Burke Co.) include the Bunkers, Chang & Eng's descendants. And one Grimaldi.

    Chris, Glad to hear everything is going well and you are enjoying yourself. I know in about a month you will be coming into Cincy. I plan on going to a show or two. If you get a minute, let me know and we could meet up or something.

    Our only other NY stop is in Rochester...

    We spent nearly our entire summer in TX after three weeks in Mexico. We are in Illinois now. I will be lucky enough to see my parents and a close friend of mine next week as they are making the trip from TN to Lexington, KY.

    Well my circus days are complete... I'm happy with each adventure I've taken and each lesson I've learned from being on the road the past five years. I'm ready to plant some roots and start a life. I've enjoyed taking a much needed break through the holidays and I look forward to entering the New Year and venturing into the next chapter of my life!
    Wishing you all a wonderful 2016!

    - Chris
