SUNSET FOR ELEPHANTS.

The Kelly Miller Circus made a visit to Kingston, Illinois.  It's late September, but the weather is more like mid-July, which is when the coming of the circus used to be the main event of summer in rural America.


Patrons have the opportunity to view the menagerie, and ride ponies, camels, and elephants before the show starts.  But our political masters have banned performing elephants in Illinois effective at the beginning of 2018.


No doubt our progressive betters will tell us it is for the benefit of children of all ages that they can no longer have this experience.


Cindy and Jenny take a bow, all the same.


For now, they're leaving the men and horses, hoops and garters alone.


See you down the road.
