Take a Word: Male

  
Few people are aware that famous circus strongman "Mighty Joe" McGraw had a soft spot in his mighty heart for his pet owl, whom he took everywhere (Oscar even had his own little matching set of luggage!).

I love this - especially the fact that you didn't use the usual 'circus' colors...very effective.
So what's in Oscar's suitcase?

What a sensational piece, Sherry! All these guys have a little "attitude" - just love Joe's expression and the tat on his arm! Awesome!

When something is funny, I usually say "it's a hoot"....but in this case it really IS a hoot! I love your strong man, and the matching luggage made me smile! Good work, Sherry.
