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!

IN MEMORY: COL. EL "LUCKY" LARABEE

Some how I didnt know until last night of the death of our friend & fellow showman Lucky Larabee, our hearts, and deepest sympathy go out to Joni.

Any time I observed a dressing room poker game, I made it a point to inform everyone that anyone playing poker with a guy named "Lucky", deserved to lose their shirt!
