Jimmy Z. is Shown the Gate…

Jimmy called last night. He had driven 1500 miles and was completely set up at the New Mexico State Fair…

When he arrive back on the lot, after going to buy hay for Daisy-Mae, he received badnews.

"Rick, guess what happened now?"


I didn'teven want to venture a guess.

I asked, "What happened?"

"The fair manager informed the carnival that their contract said….No Sideshows!!!!!!

Can you believe it…second time this year I'm sloughed by the fair manager."

Jimmy is asked to tear down and leave the fairgrounds, and this is after being assured,
before driving 1500 miles, that everythingwas all set.

This is the first time I have heard of fairshaving a No Sideshow clause in thecarnival contract…..

The summer 2005 Tour from Hell continues…
