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.

Location: GIBSONTON, FLORIDA, United States

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!

I thought maybe it was Columbus, but wasn't sure enough to go out on a limb. Trudy & I spent a lot of time in that barn when we were in the Quarterhorse business.

Mr James Hall with dark hair and look at that stance, this for sure must have been before Tepa's cooking and Elaine to run all of his errands. It's that time of year when we remember the Bobby stories and the Vegas party but at we still can see Jimmy at Evansville in a couple of weeks.

You would think he could get it done with his own help, but no, he has to railroad mine. I called my son the other night, after the KC date, to find out how to start a generator, and was told, "I can't talk now Pops, I have to help Tepa and Elaine load Jimmy's circus wagon. Keep an eye on your help if he is around. Wade Burck
