In a few hours the Carson & Barnes Circus will kick off the final performance of the 2006 season. there have been a lot of shows since the circus opened in March in Arlington, TX. By late this evening the trucks will be packed for the last run back to Hugo,OK. Geary and Barbara Byrd, along with daughters Traci and Kristin deserve enormous credit for guiding the circus through this 70th season, as they have guided it through so many others.

Hats off too, to Aaron Broderick, who will never be a "First of May" again.

Finally, I've said it before, now let me say it again. With the best management in the business, and the finest perfomers under the bigtop, it's still impossible to stage 500 shows in well over 200 towns without a world class bosses, and no boss is better than Armando "Loyal."

So this has been a mudshow season on the Carson & Barnes Circus.

Tomorrow's it's just my blog.

Hi

We came and saw your show in Burlington NC, in fact we were there waiting on all the truck to arrive so we could watch the tent go up. It was a wonderful day filled with very nice people.

My hat is off to your "First of May" ringmaster, he did a great job. So nice to see a young person enjoying working with the circus. Hope you are coming back to NC next year.

I know of a big lot near my house that is just of the HWY 52 that would be great for you show.

PS we were the people with the red-headed boy that has his own circus autograph book.
