...even when you don't know their names.
Luckily, I was wearing my Holiday World jacket and the parents of these sweet siblings were happy to pile up their pups in Santa's chair at Santa's Candy Castle here in town.
This family was visiting our town for the first weekend of the Santa Claus Christmas Celebration, which continues each weekend through December 20.

Considering that The Gravity Group is based in Cincinnati, and we're here in Santa Claus, one would think Will wouldn't have to go all the way to Las Vegas to try out the feel of a Timberliner car.
But since the IAAPA Expo was in Vegas this year, it does sort of makes sense.
The folks at Theme Park Review were kind enough to edit a video interview with our Will and Gravity Group's Korey:

Walking down the aisles of auction items with Kris from Channel 13, the questions were rapid-fire.
What is this?
And what's that? Why would you have that at a theme park?
Between Safety Craig (whom I now call Auction Craig) and me, we could identify just about everything.
We knew this was an antique oxen yoke:
Why do we have an oxen yoke? Good question!
And we knew this antique was a sign. Double-sided, even.
And there are two flat-top trunks purchased long ago from a traveling circus. Unfortunately, a typo in an online article referred to it as a "circus truck." Not such a big deal till the Associated Press picked up the article and spread the word about our "circus truck" auction. Oops.
But not everything's an antique.
Here are some parking lot lights:
...and the ever-practical bumper boats:
And everyone's must-have gift this season.
If memory servers, this pig was part of the stage decorations for one season's country show.
And finally, the mystery item.
Definitely an antique, but that's all we know.
Perhaps a spinning wheel of some sort?

Will is a happy guy.
He's in Las Vegas at the IAAPA Expo, where a sample Timberliner car just happens to be on display.
Looks pretty comfortable, doesn't he?

Well, Riley and crew can fix just about anything.
All except the weather.
We're drying off (and warming up) after a rainy two-hour tour of the various sites for this seven-day shoot for National Geographic Channel's World's Toughest Fixes.
Molly is the director, Peter is associate producer, Eric's on camera, David is soundman. And Sean Riley (who goes by "Riley"), is the host.
