His One-Night Stand Involved Clowns

David Bludworth's relative had a very good reason for leaving his bride at the altar.

"Family lore has it that a relative, Columbus Bludworth, was a no show for his wedding ceremony in the late 1920s. When asked on Monday why he was a Saturday nuptial date no show in Eucheanna (then county seat of Walton) he stated the newspaper reported the Barnum and Bailey Circus was in Pensacola for a one-night stand, so he hopped a train Saturday morning for the big tent. His reasoning was that you could get married any day but the circus would be there only one day a year. He never married." [Link]


Never married...who would've guessed? Just wanted to let you know that I awarded you the "Puckerbrush" Award: http://yourfamilystory-cmpointer.blogspot.com/2009/06/my-many-thanks.html



Thanks, Caroline!
