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've been following this theme of " down there in Florida " , and it seems that all you people do ,is have partys !There's no snow to shovel , so you have a party --it's of the road season , so you have partys --- it's Trudy's hair is red , so you have a party -- Joanne brought a cake , so you party -- We do things differently here in Wonderful Wisconsin -- I'm startin to think , we just might be wrong , and you guys down there just might be right !

Hi Bill:
Speaking of parties, it was great seeing you and Trudy on Sunday! I really enjoyed talking about all the posters & photos you shared that will be up on eBay soon enough! Tell Trudy that our new dog we picked up that evening is just crazy but loveable and a real jumper, so we may have to teach him to jump rope! I really enjoy reading your Blog and hope you will keep it up for years to come! The information on the DeRizkie Family was just fascinating! Thanks for everything and take it easy my friend- Remember it's time for you to be the Director and not part of the Grip!!!
Best regards,
Neil Cockerline
