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!

Yes I worked with him when he had his wife and Wally Naughten in the act. He stood a the net pole. Old timers used to say that in his day he was the greatest all-around circus performer; in that he was a triple somersault flyer, a somersault bareback rider and a doube back somersault ground tumbler. The young Alfedo Codona was a fler with him in the Seigrist-Silbon troupe.l
