    January 19. Started the new year off with a visit to the Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Centre. It was a wonderful outing; I felt much of the excitement of yester-year! Now-a-days there are no exotic animals, like elephants and tigers, to catch the imagination but disc-catching dogs and beautifully groomed horses and ponies performed with as much enthusiasm as their audience applauded their performance.

    The highlights of the evening were the aerialists, trapeze artists and jugglers; competition to out-perform has honed these performer’s skills to incredible heights and, in order to awe their audience, requires them to take enormous risks.

    One contemporary take was a reversal of roles; a slightly framed female contortionist bore the weight of a 200lb muscleman balancing on her shoulders and torso!

Christine Gets Painted

On Halloween eve, Christine and I went to the NYC Museum to participate in the Family Party fun. I, at least, had been around a year or two longer than all the other party-goers  but we, never-the-less, enjoyed the little ones tirelessly jigging around in their costumes, arms and legs akimbo, while their mums and occasional dad watched with pride.

We arrived early, so, while waiting for the action to start, the face-painting lady started on Christine. The following evening we went back to the museum for the “Members Appreciation Night” (Hors d’oeuvres and Prosecco)–No children present!
