Hey partner, not sure how often you check it anymore, but I've spent some time reading pretty much your entire blog here. I worked on the carnival, for the almost the whole season last year. I would never call myself a carnie. Certinly not yet. Will I go back? I don't know. Maybe I wasn't strong enough. Maybe I really didn't know what the fuck I was doing, just runnin from the cops. Maybe it's not for me. I'm not really sure yet. But I sure do miss it. The lifestyle. Your insight is inspiring. I used to work with a guy who called himself "Teddy Bear" Smoked Marlboro Lights, Black, and a hell of an agent. I remember he told me he had some family in Kanas, I got to meet his wife in Hutch. I met up with him on West Concessions, working for North American Midway and Wade. He put his ass on the line for me many times, and he hardly knew me. A great guy. I dunno if it's the same person, but how many Teddy Bears are there running around the midway? He tought me alot about the job. Your stories have too. Stay strong
I know two guys called "Teddy bear". I think I know the guy you're talking about. The one I wrote about is a white guy, kinda rolly polly, hence the name "Teddy Bear".If you miss the life, go back, stick with it and see how it turns out. It's a good life, I'll always miss it.
I hope you visit frequently here. If so I would love for you to contact me. I have read your blog and would love to interview you. Please let me know! Thanks, Meg

Carnies are supposed to be on next week's Wife Swap show. I saw some preview.
Hello there, I have to say your blog was amazing! I read every post and I really felt the love, and things you have experienced through your words. I'd be great for you to have a book, or continue publishing stories like you have here on your blog. I'm not sure if you'll read this, or not, but keep on keeping on buddy!
