Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Vintage Circus

Circus


This elephant reminds me of Bertha the Elephant from
The Nugget Casino in Sparks, NV.  

Here she is carrying one the the Nugget's famous headliners on 
stage in the Celebrity Theater.


Bertha was quite the performer at the theater 
(the opening act) and community volunteer.
Her barn was open for visits and she attended many
charity events in the Reno/Sparks area.  During a visit
at a children's event at the park Bertha's trainer let all of the
children circle around to pet Bertha.  Yep, there I was
reaching out my hand just like the rest of the kids.
