I raved about ‘Circus Smirkus’ performance in Wolfeboro yesterday. So, I am not going to say much here because there really isn’t more I can say than: “please, go and see for yourself. You will be impressed & amazed“. This post is to share MORE pictures. However, the more I think about it and the more time I spend going back over the pictures the more impressed I am. It was quite the show — done entirely by kids. Not wizened professionals, kids who were going to school, full-time just a couple of months ago. I am sold.

‘Circus Smirkus’, Wolfeboro, NH (August 12, 2018) — IMPRESSIVE, Worth Seeing!

This was not our accustomed Barnum & BaileyGreatest Show On Earth“, but it was a show and it was impressive and in the end humbling.

The tightrope in high heels was world class! Folks familiar with this blog know that we go to a LOT of circuses and have been doing it for years (and in my case most of my life). I have never seen this and that alone was worth going. Second big picture at the top. ENLARGE and look at it. That was special.

It was NOT bad at all. Actually, very impressive.

ALL KIDS ages 10 to 18. That alone makes it special. Then, right at the end the Ringmaster (who was very good) shared a nugget of information that blew us all away. The kids ONLY had 18-days, yes, 18-days, to put this whole repertoire together. That is mind-blowing. You know that circus acts work for years to get it all together. These kids pulled this off, with aplomb & panache, in 18-days. WOW. Bravo. They, of course, got a standing ovation.

Not what we are used to as veteran, annual attendees of Barnum & Bailey, but by the end we were enjoying this as much.

Yes, of course, I recommend it. Tad pricey for families. Cost nearly as much as I used to pay to see Barnum & Bailey in Manchester (but much of that is because I knew where the outstanding cheap seats were after we had been to the first few shows).

I took a LOT of pictures. It is too late to try and post them all tonight. I will work on them in the days to come.

P.S., They are in Wolfeboro, on Monday, August 13, 2018 too; 1 & 6pm. So try and catch it if you can.

Every Summer Huggins Hospital sets out to display a very impressive array of flowers. Not sure who does it, whether it is volunteers or their ground staff. Either way I am delighted. Always a pleasure to stand outside and just see all that color in its full glory.

Alas, I have to visit Huggins Hospital, at least once a year, typically in late July/early August to get blood work done for my annual (much dreaded) physical (where I get told, without fail, that I am going to die). The only thing that brightens up my visit is that I know that there will be flowers to photograph. Here are the flowers from last year.

Enjoy. If you are in or around Wolfeboro you should stop by. They don’t mind and there is plenty of free (in every sense) parking.

Taking Selfies My Way — Part XXXI; Concord, In A ‘Trick Mirror’ — August 7, 2018.

No post-processing whatsoever!


At ‘Concord Pediatric Dentistry’ — in a ‘trick mirror’ mounted low to the ground, for the kids. Couldn’t resist. I could say that I was there to have my baby teeth looked into but that would be quite a whopper. No. Teischan is getting braces. I am disappointed that the mirror didn’t distort me, at all, at all. I was hoping that it MIGHT, for a change, make me look good.
