YESTERDAY'S TOWNS

HOWDY, MY NAME IS BILL STRONG, I'LL BE YOUR "24 HOUR MAN", ROUTING YOU INTO THE PAST TO SEE WHAT THE CIRCUS WAS IN DAYS GONE BY. IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, AND MISS WHAT IT USED TO BE, THEN COME ON ALONG AS WE GO DOWN THE ROAD FOLLOWING THE ARROWS BACKWARDS, TO "YESTERDAY'S TOWNS"! IF YOU HAVE CIRCUS RELATED PICTURES YOU WOULD LIKE POSTED, SEND THEM TO,,,,yesterday1@verizon.net,,,,AND WE WILL TRY TO FIT THEM IN. "24 HOUR MAN" WILL HAVE THE FINAL DECISION ON POSTING.

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!

SHOWFOLKS FLEA MARKET

The Showfolks Fleamarket is always a Social event, this year they came out of the woodwork, here are some seldom seen personalities, with some familiar faces.

TONY STEELE, TRUDY STRONG, & MANUEL "JR." RUFFIN
Jr. once again quoted an old phrase,"Rumors of my demise have been highly exagerated"

THE WILSON SISTERS & TONY STEELE
Here are Penny Wilson Rodriguez, Trudy Wilson Strong, Tony Steele, & Joanne Wilson, Trudy & Tony flew together in the Flying Malkos, and Joanne, & husband Dennie "PeeWee" Pinson flew with Tony in The Flying Steeles.

THE WILSON SISTERS, TONY & JOE
Now Tony & the girls are joined by another retired Flyer, Joe Guzman

Bill, Will you please ask Mr. Ruffin if he worked Paul and Dottie Kellys lion act?

On the Beatty show, in '81, I enjoyed meeting The Prince twice that season--but I'd honestly not remembered how big this man is.

Dick Kelly is the man I was looking for. Someone was asking about him on Buckles Blog. My search is over. Thanks anyway.

Well did anyone find any good fleas? When are we going to see some pictures of Evansville? The Wilson girls sure seem to enjoy life and keeping busy. Never a dull moment. Like a circus.

There's more circus know-how and talent in these 3 pictures than on the entire Feld payroll.
