How To Fill The Kitty On The Wing

This French couple pulled into town a couple of weeks ago, here in La Paz, and has organized and performed 4 shows, two at each of two marinas. I estimate they pulled in between 3-4ooo dollars in those shows. See, if you had followed your teenage heart and joined the circus at 15, you could be doing the same.

This gives me the thought of reinventing the Broadway performance Stomp on board. Wonder how people would react when my wife and I come out on deck with garbage can lids, wooden spoons, and a few brooms to beat around. Art in its finest! 😉

My wife and I caught their act on Canada Day at Granville Island, Vancouver. Front row seats as we had the slip next to theirs. Great show and hilarious!

They'd probably really appreciate it if someone just showed them how to use a bosun's chair
