Jungleland semi

I recently found this old photograph of the Semi used for the Jungleland owned elephant act. Nice artwork!

CHS Newsletter

As Editor of the CHS Newsletter, I have thoroughly enjoyed putting it together over the years. Many times, I have found myself wondering what else to use to complete the issue. This time I'm in the opposite position of trying to sort out what NOT to use. I could have produced an eight page Newsletter this issue.

This issue will be coming out the first week of February to all of the Circus Historical Society members. Anyone that is NOT a member, should go to the CHS website immediately ( ) and join ASAP as another Bandwagon issue will be coming out soon as well.


There's a BIG, did I say BIG announcement coming in th February Newsletter. You won't want to miss it. The CHS members will soon know what it is.

Apparently, I have been taken off of blogger time-out as this post allowed a photo to be uploaded. Noting the hard work between my electrical genuises, fellow snow shovelers and the smattering of friendly advice has no doubt had some effect on this tempermental device. Now it's time to go to bed. Good Night!

Dear Friends,
      It appears that I have now ran aground in the Blogging Dept. I now have my regular computer back but still cannot upload any photos. Sound familiar????? Jim Peterson, you know anything about this stuff?

Not amused!

    I don't know how fast my computer will go when it gets out of the shop but apparently it is going to have a New Paint Job, a modified hemi with overhead Cams, a Holley Carburetor, a New Stick shift Transmission and a Nitro button for those excellent take-off performances. I hope it gets back from the garage tomorrow as I still can't post any pictures on here with my laptop.

New Year!

     Since my tower computer is in the shop for a general overhaul, oil change, lube job, tire rotation and balance and various upgrades, my laptop doesn't want me to upload any pictures on the blog. Rats!

Happy New Year!

Here's wishing the many great friends I've met over the years all the best for a safe and prosporous New Year. As our good friend, Jim Peterson expresses: "See ya, down the road!"
