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!

That is "Fancy", if I remember right she was half Zebra, & half Donkey, I have heard two names for this cross, Zedonk, or Zonkey, I don't know the difference, or what would apply here.

Flip WILSON. as Geraldene. Great guy. Never missed a one of his shows. George Kirby was another great. He was the headliner on a couple of Fair dates I was on.

George Kirby was one of the last of the great stand up comics, the only one of that kind left is George Wallace.

Any more photos? Worked under Ron,John and Yukon for the '82 season. The first year we got the Cinobio tent. I do remember a 24 hour man passing out cold in a heap on the ground from exhaustion one evening. Hard work that was.
