Circus Day

Sunday was Circus Day.  


Rissie got her very first face painting...


And I endured...  even though I'm not a big circus fan anymore.


There were very few animal acts this time.  Most were people acts, which is fine with me.  People choose to be a part of the circus.  Animals don't.  


There was something on television one time about animals being treated cruelly to make them cooperate in circus acts.  Are they, always?  Or was that an isolated case?  Regardless... to me they seem unhappy to be here.


So, while I enjoyed the special time with the daughter and the granddaughter...


In my heart I was freeing the elephants...
