click the photo for close ups - i love the audience's expressions
Still working through the festival photos. I started a balloonfest album on my facebook to handle the bulk of the photos, but I'll still put another post here to accommodate my favorite event - the Saturday balloon glow.
But first - this guy. I happened to time my return to the festival Saturday night just in time to catch a good portion of this guy's act. He was a juggler, a unicycler, a comedian, and had a lot of fun with the audience.
In this particular situation - the guy in the front right there crouched down with his son (who many of my readers will recognize - initials L.P) had been talking on his cell phone during the show, so the guy does the whole, oh - excuse me thing and grabs the phone and says, Who is this? He hears the response, "This is Barb"
He had the whole audience say hello to Barb and then goes on to explain that he's doing a show, that her husband is very popular now, and and and...
oops. She hung up.
It was hysterical.
And word of advice. If you're ever approached to be an unwilling volunteer during a sideshow. Run. Run Fast.
This poor lady had no idea what she was in for. One second she was on the ground, and the next second the performer had snuck up behind her and put his head between her legs and lifted her off the ground - calling it levitation.
And THEN, he grabs his unicycle, and tells her to let go of his head and put her arms out for balance. As if!
I seriously would have peed my pants.
It's been a busy week this week - two full days with my dad (weight is down - psa is up - opposite of what we would want), balancing between my mom/wife role and my daughter role, shooting a wedding tomorrow (and hoping for a little bit cooler temperatures), worrying about my dog (these fireworks aren't doing her any good - I'll have to sedate her for the fourth), and trying to keep up with all the everyday normal stuff - so thank you so much for the patience as I work through the pictures, and the fun feedback that make posting them just that much more fun.
