Visited AofA last night at the Upper SC State Fair, nice midway:

Mulligan Wheel/Expo Wheel
One Trailer Himi
P. Fury
Gravitron
Orbiter
Scooter
Free Fall
Screamer
Sky Fall
Vertigo
Fun House
Zero Gravity
Cliff Hanger
Kiddies
Not sure where the Crazy Mouse or big Giant Wheel was, but the fair had World of Wonders there and a small circus. Good line when I was leaving all the way back into the parking lot.

Checking out Jimmy Drew this weekend at the mountain fair.

Was thinking the other day about what happened to the Bobs from Strates, I am pretty sure I read that Deggeller bought it, then not sure where it went then, you know?

Yeah, wish I was ready to retire, I mean I still would like to get me another concession, use it local just to enjoy.

I don't know. I worked on the one he got from Floyd & Baxter in '78, and then he got the new one in (I think) '79 and I worked on that until he got the Pirate and I took that. No idea what happed to either of them.

Dope ruined the business for me. Lucky I got out when I did.
