Let us pray not.

This site, for all we loyal followers, has become its own form of religion.

Like a long whiff of oxygen to see the blog up and running this morning. A breath of fresh air and a great way to start the day!

Dick Flint said...

The blog has recovered from its long illness and is up and running. Barbara is recovering from her health difficulties and is up and about. And spring is upon us! The flowers are blooming! And circuses are opening again, not closing. Life is good again. And there are Roy and Cindy to welcome and support those we love and to show their care and support! It is a happy morning!

Jim Alexander said...

After a longer than normal period of winter-like (for your area) weather, the spring flowers are blooming, the trees are turning green, and now the Blog is back. Thanks Buckles, Barbara, and all the Woodcock clan that make it possible, you made my day.

This is a great day. Very reassuring to see you back. You've dealt with a long, rough winter, and are now out of the barn and back on the arrows. Bless you guys.

As our grandfathers use to say hold on to your horses the woodcock blog is back on

I am older than you and need your blog in the morning for moving on, with my 85 year old life.
It gives an old townie a peek into circus life. I still remember the beautiful red head on the lead elephant at "Circus World". Keep blogging, please.

Richard Reynolds said...

I agree with all the sentiments expressed. Great to have blog back.

all the previous great material

It is getting harder for Buckles to work on the Blog. He says he has ran out of steam. His illness is getting in his way. But he is doing real well in his day by day life. He repeats his stories, but other than that, he is doing fine. As far as the blog goes he has been away from i too long. I tried to buy him a new one, and he wouldn't have it. He wanted his old one fixed. Shannon tried his best but it was no good. So too much time was lost. Dalilah just bought him a new one without him knowing about it. NOW HE IS GETTING USED TO THE NEW ONE. It will take a little while. We are all trying to help him. GOD WILLING, he will get it. He has been away from it too long, we are pulling for him. All my LOVE to every one....Barbara....

Chic Silber said...


Dear dear Barbara thank you

for this detailed explanation

I know it must have been very

difficult for you to write it

Many of us have been selfish

about pressing him to continue

I am certain that there were

many years the Blog gave him

both pleasure & satisfaction

recalling so many great times

as well as realizing the many

folks that loved & respected

him & his knowledge from so

many parts of the world

We counted on it each & every

day as shown by all the notes

Clearly it became much more

of a chore & obligation to

Buckles as time went swiftly

by for all of us very sadly

Buckles has always done far

more than just his share

We all owe him to retreat

from this as a daily mission

I will be in touch with you

& Shannon when I return to

Sarasota in about a week

Perhaps as we discussed in

the past there might be

the possibility of a few

of us to keep a version of

the blog if only on a less

frequent basis

With all my love & respect

to your entire family

Chic

By the way I know all about

"running out of steam"

It's been difficult for me

to accept my very limited

stamina & I'm merely just

three quarters of a century

Everything I pick up seems

to be twice as heavy as I

recall it ever to be

I remain very thankful for

what I can do & remember

I'm up in New York dealing

easily with some theater

related stuff & grateful

for the nice weather

Chic Silber said...


Shannon told me that there

is a good chance for this

coming Monday the 18th to

have another shot at SONNY'S

Woo hoo I can't wait for it

Let's hear from the troops

Chic Silber said...


I just spoke with Shannon

& indeed there will be a

gathering of the clan at

Sonny's tomorrow the 18th

Hope to see the folks who

are in town & can make it
