Just wanted to let you guys know that Mark Stanley and his father Jay of Texas were involved in a car wreak last Saturday night. I have heard from Mark and he has some injuries but his father is in ICU in a Austin Tx Hospital.

Just thought some of you might want to know that.

The Stanleys ownend S&W Amusements till 1974 ( Now known as Todd Armstrong Shows) and later owned Jay Stanley Shows.

Just recieved a email from Mark.

He says his Father ( Jay Stanley) is still in the hospital but at the Nero center. He said he's not doing very well.

Mark has a busted knee with Pins in it and now has an infection in his lower lung.

Keep these guys in your prayers.

Hi, I used to own Twin City Shows. We bought the first rides we had from the Stanleys but they were never booked with us. I am sorry to hear the bad news but when Eddie died they said they didnt even remember him or me!

Jimmy Mc Knight! Twin City Shows! Wow, had joints with Matt the Cat Armnstrong when my kids were growing up. Just the names made me smile. And Fast Eddie Gordon! My daughter still talks about him. She used to ride around half the day with him on his green golf cart. Who are all you people? Throw out some more names. I've having a really good day now! Thanks!
