Every good thing comes to a close, including circus seasons. The Carson & Barnes Circus has another four weeks left to the tented circus season, but this virtual route book is going into Winterquarters. I’ll be working for the show from a California office for the remainder of the 2006 season. It’s been a pleasure and an honor to write in this blog, and to meet so many people who seem to have enjoyed it. When winter really comes, given the time I promise to go back and add material to earlier entries.

The history of the classical American circus, the popular circus is a story of change as much as it’s an incredible story of continuity. When Spring comes there will be another circus season. Count on it. Some old shows will be off the road; maybe some new shows will be born. Thus it’s always been.

Carson & Barnes will be starting its season in March in Texas and moving north and south and east and west. Count on that too.

Come the Spring, I’d like to think that on somebody’s circus I’d be writing another blog.

I appreciate your blog from this season. I hope you will blog again next year, and more importantly, that I'll be able to find you when you do! Your historical knowledge is amazing.

I sent you a list of questions to answer in preparation for my circus book, I hope you got them and will have time to answer them. If you didn't get them, let me know!!

Ben,
I can't begin to tell you how much I have gotten out of reading the blogs from this season. It has been so much fun to read and see the different places you have played. From a season tired performing clown I wish you all the best with your next season. Thanks for the memories,

NOJOE

Before when I tried to post a comment it said that I could not and I became disheartened. I hope in the future we will be able to, we, the unimportant, who buy tickets to see your show.
