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!

Buckles mother, Sadie [Babe] was probably in that number as well. Buckles would know much more.
