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!

SNAPSHOTS: TIMBA # 1


If you'll notice these two photos have a different floor. In 1992 Mr Cuneo told Trudy he had a great Spring run for her, not one week off, fortunately Ed Migley, & Hamid-Morton, worked every other week, alternating weeks, so we were able to do both routes. The catch was the jumps, after making the trip from Mexico City to Buffalo, NY, for Migley, we then went to Topeka, Kans. & La Crosse WI., & Tulsa for Hamid, Rochester, NY, for Migley, Oklahoma City, for Hamid, Harrisburg, PA. for Migley, St Paul, MN. for Hamid. Each one of these jumps we had one day to make, luckily Harrisburg opened with a night show, we drove nonstop from Okla City, (except to stop and fuel Trudy's truck), to New Stanton, PA. slept two hours, & arrived in Harrisburg at 1:00 in the after noon. Ed met me in the parking lot & handed me a Twenty, he said I had a $40 bet whether you would make it, here's your half. Ihave to mention that we owe a debt of gratitude to the crew on both shows as they broke all records getting us out of town for the jumps. Photo of on Ed Migley, Show by Jim Cole. 1992
