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!

REMEMBERING:::: "BOBBY'S BENCH"

I received this nice item from the Anderson's to share with all of Bobby's friends, we sure miss him.

HI BILL, WE RECENTLY LEARNED THAT A FEW PEOPLE THAT CONTRIBUTED TO "BOBBY'S BENCH" DID NOT GET TO SEE HOW WELL IT TURNED OUT, SO I AM SENDING YOU PICTURES OF THE BENCH ALONG WITH A COUPLE PEOPLE THAT STARTED THE IDEA, MY WIFE JOANN AND OUR FRIEND JON BROWN............SO MANY PEOPLE CONTRIBUTED GENEROUSLY I'M SURE BOBBIE WOULD BE REAL PLEASED. OF COURSE WE ALL MISS OUR DEAR FRIEND AND HIS MANY FUNNY STORIES, THE BENCH IS RATHER MAGICAL, IF YOU SIT ON IT, HUNDREDS OF STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE AND LIFE ON THE CIRCUS WILL COME FLOODING BACK IN MEMORIES OF A HAPPIER TIME. I DON'T EVER IMAGINE I COULD OUT DO BOBBY BUT I DO HAVE A FEW STORIES MYSELF....................DON AND JOANN ANDERSON



I received a little more information from Don this morning, that Bobby, at his request, is actually buried beside his parents in Miller, MO. You can bet though, that his spirit is hiding under that bench, ready to tickle the memory of those who sit there, with a story or two!

At "Showman's Rest" in Hugo, I'm sorry, I should have elaborated on that.
