I didn't know we were submitting trick pix to this otherwise straight-arrow blog. Look who Mary Jane ran into when we were at Stratford-on-Avon.

Buckles....Here are a few memories from the 1985-86 Great Circus Parades. Our circus the first year was Carson & Barnes that Jesse Jensen had booked. They were back the following year but we had added some elephants. My memory is that you loaded a couple on the train in Baraboo and dismounted in Madison and elsewhere for pictures. Right or wrong, here are a few of what I recall as great memories.

This was the water stop in Madison after which we continued on down to Janesville where Chico awaited with the truck. After making the switch we arrived in Milwaukee that evening. However in the true tradition of the circus, the train crew was transported to the nearest Holiday Inn for the night and the train arrived at the Parade Grounds the following morning amid much fanfare.

Here are a couple more photos of the Swain males. The first is Bill Swain with Ceasar in 88', then Bill with Vance in 87'. The last picture is Vance and Casey in 86' by this time Bimbo had been removed from the act.
