On the show, the Biller Brothers Circus had five elephants. Three were younger animals. Two were adults. My wife-to-be rode one of the big elephants doing an entrance of the performers and showing the public there the elephants that they were going to see later in the performance. I was interested. In fact, when I went to Biller Brothers, my very first week, I got in winter quarters in Mobile, Alabama and slept in a box stall in the barn with three elephants, babies, chained in this box stall. I slept in there with two candy butchers, men who sold soft drinks and peanuts, and things like that, to the attendees. I slept there, and I found that, well, one of the elephants could reach me and feel all over me with their trunk, and then settle down.
