Had a ball working for conklin shows western road unit, southern comfort unit. Learned alot from being out there so many years. Those experiences are a life time of memories and I wouldn't trade them for anything. Married Peter Dundas (chicken man- superloops) and have two wonderful children, with him. Black Monday at the cne was the most interesting, especially working down there all those years, and when it first all started in the 1980's. Thanks conklin for teaching us young, know it all kids how to grow up. It is a life lesson in itself, and a ball doing it at the same time. Had made alot of friends out there on the road, and still are my friends to this day...

began my tour when i met my now wife Azrael on my first day there. we did the Canada Circuit together, working the same rides. now we're married with a 1 yr old baby kai. miss the shows, but with kids come no time for such things--unfortunately...will fondly remember - messed up shows, sleeping in the possum belly, getting refused service in Dryden due to Carny Status. We miss you all.......

I started on the "Lover's Lake in Billings Montana in 1978. I moved over the the Wave Swinger the next year with the Southern Comfort Unit.Got my Conklin watch that year in Regina. I was part of the first crew that went to Puerto Rico. What a plane ride! After a few years I defected to the Joints for money working for CanAm Amusements. Being a part of Conklin was a life altering experience that has made me who I am today. My first family.

I started out as green help and ended up falling in love with the carnival life. I packed up some stuff and hit the road and had the time of my life working the shows, traveling around the country. I had to leave the show for health reasons but I'll always be a carnie at heart. And I always go to the fair when it comes to my town.
