Another Muddy Lot!

Another “Muddy Lot” I believe taken in Tulsa, OK.  Mudd Shows derived their names from the lots that they played on…..either a farmer’s field, a vacant lot outside of town or anything they could find to set up the show.  A few free tickets and a good handshake was all it took to rent a piece of property for the day. There was no such thing as a paved parking lot in a shopping center or a civic arena. When it rained you had mud! But the show still went on. Grandfather often said….”when it’s tough for everybody else ….it’s just right for me.”
