Long Weekend, Now Back to the Castle

Hope you had a pleasant Labor Day!

Generally, Labor Day marks the end of summer and the beginning of cooler days ahead. And brother are we ever glad at the prospect of cooling off! The summer heat plus the California wild fires have made for some wonderful sunsets, but the air quality is LESS than ideal, especially for those with allergy conditions.

We didn’t post a blog last week since we took a long 4-day weekend to enjoy some much needed family-time at the beach. Betty rented a beachfront house in Monterey and the kids and the grandkids all came for a relaxing respite.

I’m a lucky man. I celebrated by 60th birthday at a rented beach house in beautiful Monterey, surrounded by loved ones. It doesn’t get better than that. Thanks to all who called and sent well wishes via Facebook and email.

Here are a few pictures snapped over the weekend.

My advice: the next time someone says, “Go fly a kite!” — do exactly that.

Back to the Magic Castle Swap Meet

It’s that time again. We are off to the Magic Castle for the fall swap meet. We usually take a boatload of goodies to sell, but this time we’re going only to peruse and enjoy.

There’s always something to buy and seeing and visiting with friends is always fun, so look for us.

3 Amigos of Magic

It is now upon us. Next weekend we are back at Stars Dinner Theater for a repeat performance of the 3 Amigos of Magic. This time we’ve been asked to perform not one, but TWO shows, Saturday, September 19th and Sunday, September 20th. The 3 Amigos of Magic include myself, Tim Mannix and Mark Price.

According to Mark’s recent Facebook post describing our show: One is all fancy-schmancy, big illusion magic in a well-fitted tuxedo with a snappy assistant. One is smooth and polished with smart patter and the cutest bunny is the world. And the other is Gus Flamingo. Two shows at Stars Theatre Restaurant – the coolest stage in beautiful Bakersfield Sept 19th at 7:30 pm and Sept 20th at 2:00 pm.

Come and have some fun! Just click on the image banner below to be taken to the Stars Theatre website to purchase tickets.
