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!

Hey Wade,
I'm still here, just slow, Ramon was on Carden mid to late '80's to early, to mid '90's. I think he first worked illusions, also a house dog act, then elephants. Go to, Jim Peterson's "All my Days Are Circus Days" type in Carden Show, there is a pic of him & Naida coming out of spec, & one of him & George.

His father Ramon Sr. was a very good Juggler in the '40's & '50's.
