Tuesday May 5th, 2009. Courtland, CA. 90 miles. Grass. Overcast.
Courtland is a small town in the delta where the GPS wants us to know that we are 14 feet below sea level. When business is down, you never want to complain too much, and when it’s up you hesitate to brag. The circus gods are fickle gods and you dare not risk offending. That said, Trey Key deserves credit for bringing Culpepper to California this season, despite the depressed economy. For the last two weeks here in the Central Valley the show has been on a tear as good as any that a circus can hope for. Even the rainy days have paid off. Kelly Miller had a similar run in New England last summer, the kind of luck that reminds you why the circus business can work magic when everything falls into place. Five more days in California.
