Clown Shoe Cobbler Remembered

Here's an amazing floral piece sent by Ringling Brothers to the memorial service of clown shoe cobbler Wayne Scott. Images from Facebook and one of my favorite blogs,
I'm reminded of the story of a couple cleaning out their attic, who find a ticket from the cobbler from ten years ago. They figure they might as well see if the shoes are still there and visit the shop. The couple sheepishly hands their ticket to the cobbler and after a brief visit to the back of the shop, he tells them "They'll be ready on Friday".

Here's a scene from the memorial service in Florida. You thought it was hard to find a clown shoe cobbler before? Now, just forget about it!
