Broken ankle while on the Big John Strong Circus? And where was JSIII when this happened? There's a smoking gun here somewhere.

By the way, I am setting up my new office in our home and just hung from the ceiling a certain set of yellow and orange "Strange ?, Unusual!, Freaks!" banner line flags.

#3 had been off his Fathers Circus operating his Sideshow for a few years by the time I arrived in '82..
The main thing I remember about Breaking my ankle was when I hit the ground near the seats I heard a little Boy say "Mommy, That Man said a Bad word!"...
From Time to Time over the next few months I will be visiting My Mom and going through my photos and artifacts, I will try to find a photo of those Flags flying and send it to you.. I had those Flags custom made, at a cost of $65 a piece, they became cost prohibitive when they would fade to quickly...We now buy 2 sets of more generic flags and swap them out half way through the season at less then a third the price...
On a side note, Ward liked them, So I thought he wanted them for his collection, needless to say after I gave them to Him he promptly sold them on E-Bay.. Taught me a valueable lesson, I rarely give any BCS Artifacts away anymore...
