I’ve got some good news .. and some sad .. first the good. Rocky is doing a bit better .. my vet actually came to the house and gave him a shot. He showed me what to do .. and I’ll be giving them twice a week. He’s been getting around without help most of the time. We still have to skip our walks .. but I’m still hopeful we’ll get to the park again one day.
Now the sad news .. the magic world has suffered a great loss. The Dean of the Society of American Magicians, Jay Marshall passed away on Tuesday. Jay was actually a good friend of mine .. always with advise … and a joke or two. He was in the hospital for a week or so .. but I thought he was going to pull out of it .. but his time was up. I thought that I needed to do something special for him … so I went in the shop and made him his last wand. This is what we magicians call .. the Broken Wand. It’s actually snapped in half at the funeral. We live our lives sharing our magic … now the spell is broken … “snap.” I’m honored that I could do a little something for someone that has brought me so many memories … and sunshine everyday.
I’ll miss you Jay .. and lefty too …
