Thursday, September 17, 2009 

Thursday September 17th, 2009. Mt Vernon, MO. 20 miles. Grass/gravel. Warm.

Tomorrow we jump down to Noel, our last date in MO. After that it's OK and a couple dates in KS and TX. We close in four weeks. On the one hand after a long season seeing the end of it is satisfying -- on the other hand the idea of being unemployed is always frightening. You never seem to save as much as you'd hoped to save -- and in this economy winter jobs are harder to come by. By any metric 2009 has been a good year for Culpepper & Merriweather's Great Combined Circus.

Wednesday, Sarcoxie, MO. 50 miles. Grass. Warm.

Joplin MO commuter town. The old business district has been virtually abandoned. Small shows.



Tuesday. Lamar, MO. 65 miles. Grass. Overcast, rain.

Good shows, poor per caps. Birthplace of President Harry Truman.
