HOWDY, MY NAME IS BILL STRONG, I'LL BE YOUR "24 HOUR MAN", ROUTING YOU INTO THE PAST TO SEE WHAT THE CIRCUS WAS IN DAYS GONE BY. IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, AND MISS WHAT IT USED TO BE, THEN COME ON ALONG AS WE GO DOWN THE ROAD FOLLOWING THE ARROWS BACKWARDS, TO "YESTERDAY'S TOWNS"! IF YOU HAVE CIRCUS RELATED PICTURES YOU WOULD LIKE POSTED, SEND THEM TO,,,,yesterday1@verizon.net,,,,AND WE WILL TRY TO FIT THEM IN. "24 HOUR MAN" WILL HAVE THE FINAL DECISION ON POSTING.

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!

Little know fact: As a young girl Bea came to the united States as a dancer she answered an add for Ballet girls. Looking for a career in her chosen profession Bea went to the Auditions.

Now we all know what a Ballet Girl means. But Bea... Well She got that job as a ballet girl with the Ringling Bros circus. Just was't the career she had thought it was going to be.

That mistake was a blessing for the circus and all of us who became her friend. I will miss her.

My heartfelt prayers to April Terry & Wayne
