Good day, my fellow WOE Friends,
Monday matters - Because we have a new week in which to do something else productive! I have been doing much better in not eating several hours before bed, and not stuffing myself before that two hours. I've learned that chewing gum helps take my mind off of eating while watching Netflix.
I hope you were able to spend time with your family this Mother's Day if you're a mom, and vice versa if you have a mom. We took Jennifer out to eat and then she and I watched the sunset together.
The WOE Short Story: Both Sides of The Party - Part 5. is now online! If you haven't started reading it, please do. It's getting very intense! You can find it in the WOE Short Stories section or by clicking the ad below.
New WOE Complex Expansion update
I recently learned of some new details about what will now be officially called Circus Town. This circus-themed section will include a number of unique areas, like the ones I already mentioned: The Big Top, Super Human Feats, and Game of Chance Row. But there will also be History of the Circus Museum, several attractions, rides, and a few restaurants. I will tell you more about them as details become available.
The Big Top will be an actual circus show housed in a circus-like tent. It will have three shoe rings, a Ring Master, and even a circus band. There will be limited animals, like rescue dogs or birds performing tricks and stunts, but no large animals or big cats. Instead, they will use look-a-like animals on wheels. They will move their feet, trunks, tails, jump, and even make sounds. The performers will also be able to do tricks with them! The faux animals will be made of part puppet, animatronic, live people, and a few other secrets to making them appear real.
You will also see many of the acts you were used to seeing in the traditional circus, but "super-charged." Performance acts like the trapeze, and the high wire will perform feats and stunts never seen before. There will be daredevils, stunt shows, and many surprises.
Steven C. told me the reason they wanted to add a circus theme was due to the closing of the Ringling Brothers, and Barnum and Bailey Circus. "I went to see them as a child, and as the years went by, took my daughter to see them as well. It's a shame, so many people lost their livelihoods doing what they loved. We wanted to see the circus come alive again, but with a 21st Century spin."
The Big Top Circus will run two to three 90-minute shows a day. The acts and performers will vary each day, and sometimes each show, to give the performers time to rehearse and time off. Each show could be quite different than the one you saw just three days earlier.
Thanks for reading! Until next time,
