Museum Car.. Bob's Train Resturant

Barbara in the hat, Lola without a hat.

The Museum Car at Bob's Train,  has posters and photos of times and people in the past of the circus. The ceilings in both cars are wonderful. This one cast yellow light on everyone and every photo/poser. This is what we saw, no color edit at all but what my camera saw.


What planet is like a circus?  
Saturn, it has 3 rings.


Join the circus and put your life on the lion. You’ll have all the trapeze of success. It’s in tents. So go for the juggler.





Why are you trying to bum  Emmet Kelly? Do you want him to tramp all over people?

What wonderful memories! And not just for the circus people, but for us, to remember the circus history from years past. Light over the ceiling too. Spectacular!! I know I told you how much I like that cat in the pumpkin you are holding, but I will tell you again!

Very enjoyable photos from your visit.

That must have been so interesting. My youngest daughter would love to see that. She ran away with the circus when she finished uni.

Emmet Kelly....one of my favorite clowns. I sketched him long ago and had a lot of fun doing the pencil work.

What a great place, Bob's is!!! Loved to go through it all.

I am a big fan of clowns AND YOUR PUNS.
Good news not sore today. Just late. We had a Golden Arches coupon BOGO for breakfast biscuit. You know a Sr. Citizens is all about saving a buck or two

I would love to see this....love looking at old stuff.

My boss always told a story about when he was a kid the circus came to town, an elephant got loose and went on a rampage, ran in someone's house, and the floor fell through to the basement with its weight, and it had to be killed. Can you imagine trying to get it out. I don't know why I didn't ask him how they did that, cause he told that story more than once.

Thanks for the welcome back Sandra, I have just enjoyed catching up here, not sure how often I am going to find time to post but will try and do so on a regular basis. :)

P.S. LOVE your header today! And the train museum picture of the sad clown/tramp, I WOULD love. But clowns have been loitering in the woods, trying to take children, and going around in gangs. The police can't catch any yet, but they are now in several states.Maybe they will stop now that Halloween is over.

Didn't Judy Weber tell both of us that she is blogging again? Have you seen her blog? I don't have the address and have heard nothing else about it. I would like her address if you have one.

Gail said...

I do love history and I know I would enjoy a visit here.

Wonderful art and history.

Lois said...

Impressive! I'm pretty sure I have a couple of old typewriters like that in my house somewhere.

Cloudia said...

I really enjoyed running away to the circus with you

Ruth Hiebert said...

That color is really intense.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

As usual, Sandra, I enjoyed the puns.

Love that golden glow in the train car! Wouldn't it be so cool to be 'held' by an elephant like that?
My (late) Uncle and Aunt would have adored this place. In his role as minister for 'show folks' he befriended and presided at Emmet Kelly's widow's (re)marriage.
Elderly, childless and humorless sort of fellow, I was always a bit afraid of Uncle Lu and Aunt Bert, but I guess they loved their adopted friends from Ringling with a passion.

Emmet Kelly...now there's a clown! That is a cool train car and I'd love to see it. Btw, I like your new header.
