Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

HERE'S ONE FOR THE PIPER


Man there were a lot of "jackpots" cut up in that tent every day. And every once in a while you heard an echo in the distance, "Mac, get out of the dirt". This is the horse tent behind the Big Top at CWM, when it was up on the hill by the library, early to mid '80's

I notice that the air-conditioner wasn't working that day -- it seems to have stopped (left side of tent opening).Tent looks pretty clean -- Rick was always ragging about tracking horse droppings up on the bandstand -- not to mention hay and straw!

Mac was one of Buckles elephants. The one with the single tusk, that made him look like he had a big toothpick hanging out of his mouth!
He liked to throw dirt on himself, especially on those hot Wisconsin days!
