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!

Almost all circus folks are and were the salt of the earth no matter where they were born. Kelly Miller had me from South Africia. I never saw race as an issue on any circus. Or country of origin. The only really bad person I knew is dead and can cause no more harm to the circus.

Mr. Lee, the last time I saw Luis was at Dori Miller's service in Hugo. He told me at that time that Tina had passed away and that he was living with one of his daughters. Has he since passed away. The were such nice folks!!

I see Luis once in a while at the post office, he was our back fence neighbor until he sold the property, the last I know he was living in a trailer at Lance Ramos' place.

Thanks, I turned Kandra (Craig)Robertson onto your site a few days ago. She just went nuts! All those pictures of Gil Gray's show with all her Dad's floats!! Gerty still remembers sewing all those ruffles on the Easter costumes in the pictures. Kandra, Gerty, Peggy Zoppe and myself will be making our annual treck to see Ringling in the next few weeks. Can't wait, they are all such a hoot when we get together and we have a ball!! May be the last time we see 3 rings I guess. Sad how the world and things change.

L.W.H
The reason they were called 'The Argentinas' was because that is where Tina was from. Luis is from Chile.They were great performers and Friends and Tina is missed by all who knew her.

To bmg, Word has it the Red show will keep the 3 ring format next year. They will have an end wall with the TV screen though.
