Sheldon, IA. 45 miles. Grass. Sunny. Very hot.

Nice short jump. CM always does fair business here. I've been following the news of the military coup in Honduras closely. Lived and worked in Honduras oh-so-long-ago and in recent years it has appeared that the threat of government by coup in Latin America was finally a thing of the past. The dusk to dawn curfew in place is tough on the little circuses from Salvador that are popular in Honduras. Generally a show will set up and stay in a small town or city for as long as a week, but if they can't perform they will literally stay put until they have enough fuel money to move again. Zoo in Tegucigalpa used to do a lot of animal trading with shows looking for fuel money after a tough stretch. Got a polar bear that way.

Hope you do some biz in Iowa (my home state.) Sheldon is one of the nicer towns in that part of the state. I once lived in NW Iowa 30-some years ago.

Wanted to share this line from the late, great Billy Mays: "Life's a pitch and then you buy."
