[quote author=ssdau link=topic=4417.msg39684#msg39684 date=1253644418] Hello All- Had a chance to read the first couple of chapter of mom's book today! As you can imagine, this is a difficult process for her, but I think the book is going to be REALLY interesting. Obviously, as her daughter, I didn't pry information out of her growing up. So I am just now finding out all kinds of things. I can promise you this...mom knows a whole lot more than I think she even realized. Hopefully, she can shed some light on a few topics you all are questioning here. More to come...stay tuned- SS DAUGHTER ;D [/quote] that's interesting, ssdau. I think one of the most interesting facets of her story might be what exactly are her vivid memories of the key players in the whole circus: charlie, the girls, etc.
