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!

Hi Bill: I remember as a youngster going to my Mom's favorite ice cream store in Detroit called Saunder's. I always ordered a Cherry Soda that contained vanilla ice cream, cherry syrup and soda water. The soda water made it a real soda!

my high school job at an ice cream store making sodas, sundaes, malts and milkshakes paid for my excusrions to such faraway places as macon, meridian and tallahassee to visit the beatty-cole circus and montgomery to visit ringling and somehwere in georgia to visit cristiani-wallace from the time i was a 14-year-old fan in dothan, alabama until i made an upward move to a drive-in movie theater as a high school senior. and i still remember how to make all of those concoctions, though it seems nobody even dips real ice cream anymore -- a nickel for one scoop, a dime for two

Remember Isley's, with the bullet shaped dips.
Here's a little quiz. What is a "Tin Roof" sundae?

Margaret,
It could have been different in different places, but that's close enough. Where I lived it was a chocalate sundae with peanuts.

How about a "Black & White" sundae?
