"Memorial Day" Remember and give thanks!

Honoring those who have given their lives in the service of our country!
Pearl Harbor, a tribute to those who gave their lives. As President
Roosevelt said "December 7, 1941, a day that will live in infamy!"

We also must not forget those in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard who pledge their lives to protect us around the world.

These are the heroes of today! Young men and women who have accepted todays challenges to protect us 24/7, 365 days a year.

Don't forget them! We are thankful and pray for them daily.

No matter where you are, please take the time to thank those who are in uniform or those who proudly wear a hat that shows they are a vet.

You may share a tear with one who you have made feel appreciated.

Let us never return to a period where our vets were ill treated for their serving our country ie. Vietnam. God pray for us!

Stand up! Stand up now!

Even clowns get their feelings hurt! In this photo, someone told Fluffy that her orange hair was ugly. Silly Willy said, "No it's not, her hair is beautiful!"
People often say or do things that hurt another's feelings. Why would they say or do these things? Sometimes, people in a group will pass by a clown and someone will say stomp on his big shoes! Then suddenly there's a group of grown-ups that are trying to stomp on a clown's new $450.00 pair of shoes. What does this tell the kids that observe this behavior. That it is OK to behave in this manner. Is it OK to pick on another who is different, one who is less fortunate?

There was a story of a clown that was entertaining at a festival. He had been bringing smiles, laughter and love to all he met for many years. One of the people at the festival gave his son a hammer and told him to go and hit the clowns big shoes. This act ended a clowns career as he was a diabetic and the injury eventually caused the foot to be amputated. Wasn't this a fun thing to do?

The purpose of this post is not only how to treat clowns but how to treat others that are part of your lives. Treat others with respect especially the young, the old, those who are physically or mentally impaired. Stand up for those who are more or less fortunate than yourself. Your life will change dramatically. " Stand up, stand up now for yourself !"

"Oh No!" It's happening again!

Oh No, not again. I feel as if I am having an "Intellectual Pause!"

Have you ever got yourself into a lot of projects and feel as if somebody or something is picking at your brain???

That is where I am at this moment. If you remember the catastrophe of my dumping all my pictures from the World Clown convention. I did receive a bunch of pics from some wonderful friends. Now the work begins with editing and sizing for publishing. There are some stories of some of the old circus clowns in the planning stages. No, there is not a meltdown in progress.
It is a time thingy! Plus there will be a few travel trips to make. Since starting this blog, we have traveled through four states. If you have any questions about clowning or want some information about clown schools send them to us. In the meantime, please be patient! Thank you for dropping by! Please write!

"Clowns to the Rescue"

I wish to thank the following "Fellow Joeys for coming to our rescue! On our April 19, 2008 post, we mentioned losing all our convention pictures by pressing the wrong button. They came forward and took time to send copies of their photos to us.
Love, Laughter, Happiness and. . . . .

One of the most important attributes of a clown is "Caring"!
