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 had no idea Ossian was still alive!! When
I lost everything I owned in a wreck leaving mexico, Lilliana and sven told mr Wirengard what happened to me and on their say so he completely built all new props for my " Champagne Poodles" act, All the new props were stainless steele and mirrored balls.his workmanship was impeccable. He told me not to worry about paying him until I got back on my feet. I got work rather quickly and made sure to repay Mr. and Mrs. Wirengard's kindness to me just as fast as I could, Bigs hugs and Kisses to Lilli and svend as always..I always be grateful to them....Mr. Lee

Ossian & em were probably the biggest influence on my career. You only have to look at their rigging to see how mine was designed. They even allowed me to setup & practice in their yard. A great couple indeed, I learned so much from their encouragement & experience.
