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!

DAVE HALE'S 5-H RANCH-MAY, 1986

This starts with a familiar story, booking the whole season, then being told on payday in one town that you have a month off, it would have been too much to ask for them to have told you the truth when you asked two months earlier if that was going to happen.

Since Joanne was laying over in Cape Girardo,MO, at Dave Hale's 5-H Ranch and we were fortunate enough to be invited to stay there as well. We had never met Dave and had no idea what a treat we were in for, what great hospitality, he immediately made room for our horses in his barn, and welcomed us like family.


Of course icing on the cake was a couple other visitors who were there at the time.

"THEY CALL ME MR. GIBBS"
Rosa Gibbs, Linda Peeple(?sp), Bobby Gibbs, & Dave Hale.

WE'RE GONNA NEED MORE PIZZA
Linda, Rosa, Joanne, Trudy, Steven, Bobby, Dave, & yours truly!!!!

Since Dave had to leave for Hawaii with his Petting Zoo before our stay was up, I went to him and asked how much we owed him, his reply, "not one damn cent".

I believe Bobby had pig races out foe Dave Hale at one time or another.
