“Next to a circus there ain't nothing that packs up and tears out any quicker than the Christmas spirit”
Kin Hubbard

Cole Alpaugh
“And there was nothing quite like the surprise attack of a snarling black bear, even one missing all forty-two teeth, to urge someone back to work. Waking up with several hundred mud-encrusted, reeking pounds on top of you — your neck suffering a hickey of epic proportions — just pushed the limits on what was tolerable.”
Cole Alpaugh, The Bear in a Muddy Tutu
