Well, magic has always held a special place in my heart – because of you. You were the first “up close” magician I had ever seen… and sat next to in – gosh, what was the diner between the Sav-On’s and the See’s Candy? – but you were doing a card trick, it was awesome…. and this was in High School! Wrote a poem for you, even… ah me. You are pretty darned amazing…
JJ, somewhere I STILL have that poem! When I find it I'll scan it to your FB wall.
Wow.. well, I never wrote a poem about you, but I can certainly relate. You have taken magic in bars to a high level. I have tremendous respect for you and your achievements.
I appreciate the kind words – especially coming from an award winning bar magician extraordinar',
Actually it was a combination of the two… you blew a good laugh for me once…
My fog just got thicker…
It's about 19…78? I'm living in Del Rey with Janis Johnson when I got a phone call from Jean Reilly. “Rick Gerber is having some people over at his house. Come on over.” It then became one of the most fun nights of my life.
There were about 10 of use there. It was a very hot evening and the front door was open. You hypnotized Steve Schwartz…a very suceptible target. First you hypnotized him to think he was a chicken. He squacked, clucked, and flapped like a chicken. Only problem was, a cat came in through the open door and I thought Steve was going to have a heart attack. He “flew” up onto the couch and squacked like the chicken “Chicken' he was. Fortunately you brought him out of it right away. Then you hypnotized him to see us all naked. Steve's girlfriend left the room. I stayed but sat kind of “covered up.” Of course Danny Miller and John Murphy sat sprawled out. Steve was appalled that we would be naked in front of him.
Then you hypnotized someone else…a girl I think…into thinking she was Paul Revere and she had to warn the neigborhood. Well, the door was still open so out she ran. The people on Boeing were well warned that “The British are COMING!”
It was a night I'll never forget. Mostly because it's one of the few times I've laughed that hard without peeing my pants.
HOW DO YOU REMEMBER ALL THIS! I have a hard time remembering what I had for breakfast. Thanks for reminding me about this. I am laughing so hard my side hurts as you bring back these fun memories.
