Spiderman At Legend City

In this photo on the right is myself with Doug and Kristy Kulesza. Their mother, Pam Kulesza who took this photo was one of the food mangers at Legend City, Tempe AZ. and I might add, was a valued employee. Spiderman was played by J.D. Watson. When J.D. was not doing Spiderman, his business was hair styling.  I cannot remember the name of the little person kneeling.  He was always there for a photo and gave out a lot of cheer for the visitors. The other two people’s names are unknown to me.  Photo was taken in 1977.

My Elephant

Posted By on March 9, 2016

scan0002We did many school promotions. Called “Kids at Legend City” where on Saturdays one through third grades were invited to visit with Shorty. This fine little elephant really enjoyed the event because of all the treats he got from the kids. Smoky Jones named him Shorty. For whatever reason I don’t know, but the name stuck. Smoky also did the first braking of Shorty for Gene Holter. In the spring of 1976 I bought him from the Holters for Henry Bros Circus. A Pam Kulesza photo.
