Tuesday April 29, Dupo, IL 15 miles. Grass lot cool, sunny. Show is playing on a football field. Buried a truck and trailer on the way in. Football coach not the happiest guy on the planet. Sometimes the only recourse is to point to the contract and remind the sponsor that we a lot must be suitable for heavy equipment. Nobody likes to tear up a field, but some things can't be helped.

Monday April 28. Millstadt, IL. 35 miles. Narrow gravel lot. Cold, sleet, miserable weather. It was 90 degrees a week ago. Now lows are predicted in the 20's. Great crowds and good box office despite the bad weather. Midway took a hit. Visitors from the St Louis Circus Day Foundation at the show.

How long are you in Dupo for? just the one show? I hope not! Can't make it tonight!
