May All Your Days Be Circus Days

Pretty cool ! We were included today on Jack Ryan's "May All Your Days Be Circus Days" page on Facebook. Jack coined the phrase during his time with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Please visit his page for circus news and pictures from all over the world.

Bushnell Ill

The elephants enjoyed some extra enrichment today with two large trees in their yard. The fall weather has hit us strong in central Illinois.

La Salle Ill

We had a fantastic visit yesterday with retired sea lion ( and elephant ) trainer Jim Alexander. He is an encyclopedia of history for the St. Louis Zoo, where I grew up and my father worked as the third and last elephant trainer. I love the jackpots he shares of many animal handlers, circus and zoo alike.
