The second was taken during the performance under the big top. His platform was built on a jeep. His podium so to speak would revolve as he played his songs.

"Actually it was 1953, I visited the lot that season when the Ringling Show played LaCrosse, Wisconsin, we were booked at the local Fair so didn't get a chance to see the performance.
While chatting with Mickey Freeman I brought up the subject of Mister Mistin and she immediately got on the defensive explaining what a bright, talented and polite kid he was. I gathered from her attitude that most visitors had knocked him.
Letter from Bill Woodcock...........8-15-53.............To Tom Parkinson
"Visited RBBB lot between shows at LaCrosse, also Arky came to the fairgrounds to look at my layout. 27 bulls with RB with four more in quarters. Louie Reed with the latter."

Buckles: Phil and Francine Schact showed Dondi at the Guilford, Connecticut, fair over the weekend.. Their son, Joshua, was helping young fans feed apples and bananas ($1 each) into Dondi's seemingly bottomless pit just before her performance with the Wallenda Family Circus. Dondi, who also was used for elephant rides, is 33, adopted by the Schacts when she was a baby. The September 24 web site edition of the New Haven (CT) Register has a great feature on Dondi and her food preferences. Lane Talburt
