Dear Daniel,

My family has traveled with the Carson and Barnes Circus for 30 years. Our wonderful now deceased 370 pound friend Bobby Gibbs said he knew you when you traveled with that or some other show. Bobby was a story teller so feel free to ignore this if memory fails you.

Daniel replies:

Bobby Gibbs was a wonderful character, and like everybody else I was glad I got to know him. I once followed him around with a tape recorder for two solid days--the idea was I would write a book. I sort of know where the cassettes are. Sort of. We talk about him fairly often, and remember him fondly.
