I wondered what became of that missing bull tub?
.....the other two are out on the front driveway.

According to Billie Lou

it's either in a truck

or buried in the mud but

I can't remember where

Your dear wife told me

that I could have it

if I could arrange it

Please remind me where

it is Billie Lou maybe

New Braunfells

I want it for a grave marker

It's in a semi in New Braunfels, Texas. So are a lot of other props. I live in Northern Michigan, am going on 90 so it's all out of my hands.

Tommy Hannaford, Peggy MacDonald and Mack MacDonald. All three elephants trained by Mack.

Give me half a chance to look up Peggy & Mack's New Braunfels address. I visited Peggy on that property twice, once with Bill Johnston, and Peggy told me everything Mack ever had stayed right there, since no one had ever asked for it. Tubs, picket line chains, stakes, training rigging, shovels, rakes, old hooks, and all, remained in that barn, untouched at least throughout the '90s. I departed the area in '98, so can't account for it after that. If memory serves, someone on this site claimed that someone went there and cleaned everything out. I hope it was done with authority, and not a theft. Someone speak up.

I don't think anything of Uncle Mack & Aunt Peg are gone. As far as I know everything is still there. Aunt Peg did give some of my cousins some bull hooks but every else is in storage. I hope to go down there this winter and I will find out for sure.

Many thanks Grace for this note

I'll be very grateful to learn

about what you find down there
