    Six grandchildren fidgeting in their seats in the Gods, suddenly transfixed by the action on the stage and held there in frozen in awe by the terrifying, death defying, tumbling, flying, balancing and whirling acrobats, interspersed with laughter at the antics of the clowns, amidst the soaring music. Wow! Wow! Wow! And the nine adults were equally ecstatically applauding, cheering and gasping. Such a rich experience carried away in our memories to talk about whenever we meet.
