Trick Pony



When he's not snacking on footwear, Manny can often be found showcasing a variety of other talents. And who knows? Maybe some day you'll seem him in Cirque Du Soleil. While his juggling skills need a little work, he's definitely a contender for the tightrope walking.

Oh, and there's this.



Plus, you should see him man the trapeze.

He gets it from me.

What?

I never told you about my circus days?

It was a long time ago. I was a kid.

There was the year I was The Clown.



Then in '82 I was The Rabid Lion.



There was the season that I was The Chipmunk Dressed As The Angel.



Which was fun. The year after I was The Girl Who Walks On Her Hands.



And, of course, how could anyone forget, The Toothless Pixie?

It looked like a van drove through my mouth.

Which was the least of my problems.



I hung up my trapeze shortly thereafter.

There was just no topping that last one.

You gotta love the childhood short haircuts! We all have one to remember ;)
I don't know what house it is you have with the giant porch with the ivy - but I love that picture in your photo reel!

Hey, Kelly. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I am glad for two reasons...first, I am thrilled when someone comments (pathetic, I know) and secondly, the fact that you commented helped me find your blog, which I am loving. I especially loved ready "The Beginning and the End" post. Keep them coming.
