I visited Pat Anthony over there in '76, in Garland, Texas, when Cliff had this striped top. I have missed knowing--is Frank Peeler still with us?

Re that Garland date: The next town was Petaluma, California. After the matinee, the Texas Department of Public Safety came out issuing warnings of damaging winds approaching within an hour. Vargas ordered the slough, and we all got on it, barely avoiding a blow-down. The long side states were pulling when we got the thing down under Frank Peeler's steady commands. Quite a day, with show-wise visitors helping get the show loaded and down the road.

Big John Richards was on the Pat Anthony act, and visitors that day included Aurelia Hall and her family.
