We are now 6000 feet above sea level in New Mexico. It was 68 degrees when we arrived. We started the day at 102 in Texas. That state needs your prayers as it burns up. It is supposed to hit the low 50s tonight where we are.
We had Mexican food for dinner and even roasted our own Jalapeno peppers. NM peppers are the best!
We will be at the fairgrounds tomorrow. Everyone is looking forward to getting set up and practicing. 10 days was too many days off.
On the show news front we have decided to drop the word magic from our show name and starting 21012 season we will just be the Kent Family Circus. We are an internationally registered circus. After much research I have found that the word "magic" is a stigma with many bookers because there are so many magicians out there, and in the words of a couple of fair managers and a few bookers, "most of them bad magicians". I love magic but I know our show has transformed so much so we had a meeting and made the decision.
There will still be lots of illusions and magic in the show and I will still do private and public magic shows separate from the big show.
Blessings to you all. Cheers to you JC and Dean. Love you guys. Cheers to Mom and Dad, love you too. Thanks for all the help.
News to the house sitters.....we will be back Sept 11. Mami and Titus will end the tour then but the rest of us will continue to Texas, New Mexico and Southern Cal.
