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!

Bill, I think most of us gibtown circus folk remember great times like this one, lol , I remember my triumphant return from ringling's japanese tour.. it was 6:30 in the morning,My wife judy and our sons, trudy, Joanne, the Guttis, etc. all waiting on my screen porch with coffee and doughnuts,The party and jackpots went on all day. We here have always been supportive of each other in both sad and good times. I love it like no other place....

I saw the obit on Paul Miller. He gave me my first job as a wirewalker in 1962 and it was on his show I met the people who helped me get started in the circus. I don't know how many people remember his show, but it was what the story described. While I was there George Bruno ( breakaway pole) and Tommy Hanneford's riding act (his father's act at that time) were there among others. It's a time I will never forget. Eddy Ventura
