Description
Timmy is the only child of a mother whose husband died from the effects of "Agent Orange" in the Vietnam war. She prays nightly for God to help Timmy find something that will will help him settle down a bit. He is so rambunctious it wears his mother out. Then, one morning he hears a noise outside his second floor window. Looking out, he sees two tall poles sticking out of the fog. Wondering what they could be, he hurriedly goes downstairs, eats a slice of wheat bread, drinks a little milk and rushes out the door. Running into the fog, he trips over some railroad rails that had just been laid there. Getting up , he then is confronted by some rows of barbed wire that is surrounding a big piece of canvas. Not ever seeing a tent before, Timmy cautiously raises the side and then pricks his thumb on the wires. He cried out and the Ring Master, hearing him, ran over to the side of the tent and picked him up. Timmy looked at the tall man and said "What are you doing here"? Then the Ring Master said "Well what are you doing here'? Timmy said that he lives in the little house just outside of this heavy fog. The Ring Master said " Have you ever seen a Circus "? Timmy said " What is a Circus"? So the Ring Master began carrying Timmy all around the big tent and introducing him to all of the circus entertainers. From the thin man, sword swallower, fat lady, airilist , juggler and every one else. Then he saw all of their animals that helped and performed in the circus. Tell you what" said the Ring Master, "If you will come here early every morning and feed and water all of our animale, you can have a good breakfast with all of the performers and then watch us all perform" " Wow, I can do that" So every day, Timmy did his work and then watched the performers practice for their activities. Then in the evening, He brought his mom to see them also. When the circus ended in two weeks, his mom thanked the Ring Master for letting Tim help them and also helped him to settle down a bit. Timmy did a great job every day and we all enjoyed his company while he watched all of us perform. The Ring Master shook her hand and told them good bye. When his hand left hers, she noticed that he had placed an envelop in her hand. Opening it whenever they returned home, she discovered a nice crisp $100.00 dollar bill in it. They would now be OK for a while. When going to bed that evening, she thanked God for providing for Timmy and helping him to settle down a bit.
