On my 4th visit (out of 7)

to Australia in the 90s my

wife & I were able to enjoy

some delightful tourism

From Melbourne & the South

through much of the East

coast up to Northampton

in Queensland & out to

Heron Island part of the

Great Berrier Reef it was

all a fantastic adventure

This shot was taken at the

Lone Pine Sanctuary just

outside Brisbaine

My 1st 3 trips only saw

Airports Hotels & Arenas

& Theaters with no time

for anything else like

so many of us in show

business who don't get

to enjoy so many places

we've been & gone

Across the harbor from Sydney

is my favorite Zoo in the

world (& I've been to 100s)

Taronga is situated on the

tremendous hillside facing

the water & the Sydney coast

My wife & I look forward

to getting back for another

similar trip

On the old one-night stand shows, we toured North America and saw the countryside, while the towns themselves remained little more to us than names on a route card.

My late Jungleland pal, Chuck Hayes, was a Sells & Gray and King Bros. veteran whose only true home was wherever a mud show set up the tents. He loved to tell of the people who'd ask him where the circus played yesterday. Hell, he'd say, I don't know. OK, well, what town do you play tomorrow? Hell, he said, beats me--and by the way, what's the name of this town?
