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!

FROM THE CHEESE BOX #4

GIL GRAY CIRCUS 1963
This is Joe Lemke with Suzie, & Marvin Varner with Sammy.

My first year on the Gray Show I worked props and one of my jobs was to strike Joe's props, Suzie & I would do a little comedy tug of war with the stilts then Sammy,(on a leash held by Marvin), would chase me off the stage with a broom. Every show I would run off the stage & go to my left down the track, one day I ran off the stage, turned left, & there was Sammy waiting for me,,,, lesson learned!


THE EUGENE NOCK FAMILY 1977
Eugie, Eugene, Aurelia, John, & a young Bello,I sure hope they do something with that kid's hair when he grows up!!!!
