CHS Convention in Cincinnati
The Vent Museum was well worth the wait. There are three buildings full of celebrated dummies that add up to over 800 in the collection now. The most recent members include Peanut, Walter, and Jose on a stick from Jeff Dunham's collection.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
