Speaking of the happiness quotient of the world - last night we went to see our granddaughter in Circus Smirkus (http://www.smirkus.org/). The full house was delighted with the music, choreography, and especially, the young performers, all 18 and under. What a wild, energetic and enthusiastic evening. I was exhausted by the end of the show. Happiness was rampant.
These photos from two summers ago and this past Christmas show our grandkids with circus thoughts on their minds.
