Ten years ago Pammy and I were dreaming of a white Christmas in Sarasota, Florida. We spent our first Christmas away from home in a very long time because we were in Winter Quarters rehearsing the 131st Edition of the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Baily Circus. Fortunately for us we got to spend holiday at the annual Christmas party at the home of two of the nicest people on Earth and friends to all circus clowns: Steve Smith and Beth Duda. The following photos only give a hint of just how special their home felt. While we were there we enjoyed the company of some neat people. I love showfolk!
The lovely and charming Beth Duda.
Pammy and I with Jackie LeClaire, circus clown and Red Skelton impersonator not to mention a great guy.
Ruth Chaddock , Barry Lubin (of the Big Apple Circus) and Mitch Freddes.
Prop master George Shellenberger and the irrepressible Steve Smith.
Everything seemed to sparkle and glow at their place.
Some of the feast that we enjoyed that day.
Pammy and I chillin' backstage, I mean poolside in Paradise.
Red unit Boss clown Jay Stewart being a good daddy.

Tonight you've got a chance to see this year's only complete lunar eclipse. The next time it occurs in 2011 we'll only be able to see a portion of the event so check it out! Below are some links on the lunar eclipse. Happy winter solstice.

I think we miss seeing some of the nicest things outside while were getting ready to leave the house in the morning. I try to make it a point to step outside to see what surprises nature has for us. I'm usually not disappointed. I do make it a point to have a good, hot cup of coffee with me when I step out. It adds to the enjoyment. Viva Mother Nature!
