Zippy is still continuing on with the Swan Family Circus after his brother Hi Top passed. Operating these days out of a 20 by 40 top, he pounds the stakes himself and says as long as he has a couple of days before opening, he can get everything up. He's in Placerville this week and doing well, still with the gold shoes and zaniness. His elephant collection is said to be a record Guinness Book World Record.

Tell Andy HI from me. Is he still doing his incredible scrapbook/journal? That one will be in the Smithsonian somewhen, I think. It's a very valuable piece of historical documentation.

I don't know about the scrapbook, but he is gunning for the record with his elephant collection. Curator, I gave Zip a copy of Small Town Big Top and he was grateful. We didn;t get to chat a whole lot, as he had his show to do. He's still plugging along. I don't see him much anymore as I only do two shows in California. Maybe he will show up in Fresno like he did two years back. I will pass you message along as I am expecting an email from him shortly.

ciao

Yes, saw Zippy at Placerville Fair a week ago. He now has Lo Tops with him, a young kid breaking into the ranks. He has tried a few. Great guy, Andy.

You were at Placerville Dr. Solar? Should have stopped by to say hello. Of course I was working the vending side of the midway there with our "Hippie Store" Will you be back at Fresno this year? I'll be there as the Voice of the Fair for the third year. I am happy about that indeed! Thursday we head up to Washington to begin our Northwest swing. See ya in October.

Hey there abigkahuna/1,

I didn't get around El Dorado Fair too much. Just went looking at the spread. Caught some of Sourdough Slims set. I'll be at Fresno again luckily having lost a couple other gigs. How about a shout out at Fresno. do you mention my shows? Or are you told what to mention and what not? Stop on over and say "Hi" I'm working that fair like 8 hours with my walk around and cruising on the solar charged trike.

I pretty much announce your every show, as well as everyone else's, every half hour. Granted I might miss someone's ground act from time to time, but I try to cover everyone. See yah there!
