In my early teens, I became a drummer. Played drums in my high school band, and gradually was invited to join small groups because there were a number of smaller groups playing for dancing around my hometown. Eventually I got a job with a circus. I know now that the circus was sort of bouncing around this home territory. And I remember the show very well. And I was 16, 17, 18, somewhere in there, when I played with that band. At the end of my period with them, with that show, I went to Florida, myself and two brothers, one of whom was married, freshly married. We were living in a trailer, and we came to Sarasota.
