BILLY & BENNY #1

Bill and I met these guys when we played the fair in their hometown, Hendersonville, NC.
They brought their toy poddles to show in the Fair's Dog Show.
They each had a custom built Chevy specially built for them.
The next time We saw them they were in Valdosta, GA.
Paul A. Miller, whose son Buddy, was the patch for Little Richard.
Paul had framed a side show with them. It reminded us of the old time Athletic Shows.
In other words they would take on all commers in the ring!
Well it was a hastily framed show without a banner line and at that time the boys hadn't gained the national attention. Billy and Benny McCrary were the world's heaviest twins, at 743 and 723 pounds
Here's the picture that started everything!
