Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge

I really didn't know what I would do for this weeks challenge. Then I remembered when I was in elementary school, we got out of school just to GO TO THE CIRCUS!!!
The Shrine Circus came to Salida, Colorado 60 miles away from home. The parents would take carloads of students over on either Thurs. or Fri. to go to the circus AT NIGHT!!! I remember I was going to be a trapeze artist when I grew up. I would come home and my swing set would be all I needed to fulfill my dream of circus life.
When I found the picture online of the clowns, I actually remember seeing them do this particular act.
Thanks for bring these great Circus memories back with this weeks challenge.

This weeks Challenge......
"Summer fun & Relaxation" 

"Down by the Old Mill Stream"

My darling I am dreaming of the days gone by,

When you and I were sweethearts beneath the summer sky;
Your hair has turned to silver the gold has faded too;
But still I will remember, where I first met you.

The old mill wheel is silent and has fallen down,
The old oak tree has withered and lies there on the ground;
While you and I are sweethearts the same as days of yore;
Although we've been together, forty years and more.

Down by the old mill stream where I first met you,

 With your eyes of blue, dressed in gingham too,
It was there I knew that you loved me true,
You were sixteen, my village queen, by the old mill stream.

 Today is our daughter's birthday.
What a blessing she is.
I am so thankful that God decided she was meant to be our little Shelly.
She has always been very independent, sometimes a bit strong willed :+).
She loves life.
She's a great daughter, loving supportive wife, great Mom - but like all of us Mom's am sure she has heard "You're the meanest Mom ever!". 
She is a Godly woman, will help anyone that comes along needing help.
If you have her as a friend,
 you know she likes to have fun and laughs a lot!
Honey, I love you so much. 
I am so proud of the beautiful woman you have grown up to be and most of all not only are we mother/daughter,
but you are my best friend.
Happy Birthday Sweetie!!!!
Love Mom
