Circus visit

After work on Friday, we drove back to Mendota (where we broke down a couple of weeks ago) to join up with the show for the weekend. As always, it was everything we needed...

Some highlights:

- Late night pizza run with Steve, Shelby, Radar, Elisa, and Pete to a local pizza place in downtown Mendota. We all ordered "dough nuggets", which turned out to be cheesy bread, but still delicious!

- Saturday was busy:

John met with Steve and Ryan for a good ...

Day 2 of Mendota

Since we lost Wednesday and Thursday publicizing the circus in Mendota, we opted to treat today as a work day especially since Al, the circus' bill poster, would be in town putting up posters everywhere.

Two school assemblies
One daycare

Firefighters are the best

So when we got in last night, we stopped by the fire station where we were staying, but couldn't find our contact. I texted him and then we drove around the town to see what we could see. What we saw was three fire trucks with their lights flashing down the street a few blocks, so we made our way over to the town library for some a/c and free wi-fi to wait for them to be done. It turns out they had two fires and two ambulance calls that afternoon, so we didn’t connect with ...
