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 Jim:
We're having our "Winter" this week! It was in the 30's here last night, right now it is 11:20am, & my thermometer reads 40.
What is "snow"?

The wind is blowing so loud , it's hard to hear you , the computer keys are sluggish from the ice , and it's hard to type with mittens on -- I have to go out and shovel last night's "heavy frost" --- I suppose I'll have to get some more sun-tan lotion ,if the van starts , as we are out. But it's Wisconsin -- God's Country -- wish you were here !

So good to see Joyce Vidbel is out and about. She and Al put out one of THE finest tent shows for 20+ years. Diane and I structured all our warm weather and sometimes not so warm weather months around the Vidbel route. We were privileged to attend the Windham, NY memorial "party", as Jenny called it for Al. It was wonderful! We'll never forget Al and keep countless fond memories. Joyce, always lots of love.
