ringling-homeWhen not doing shows- the month of August kept me mostly busy preparing for my multi-state lecture tour.  From September 3rd through the 13th I had quite an adventure. Along my tour I stopped in Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South and North Carolina, and finally Mississippi.  I had a blast, made some good money, some new friends, saw lots of interesting places like Graceland (the home of Elvis Presley), the Ringling Circus and Art Museum, the Cà d’Zan Mansion (seen to the left), and the winter homes of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison.  All in all I drove 3700 miles roundtrip.  I have now performed my magic in 22 of the 50 states in the U.S..  One day I hope to have knocked out all fifty.

In the past couple of months work has been plentiful and I’ve done shows for several restaurants, the Frisco Roughriders, Alliance Data, Texas Instruments and several private parties.  One performance had me as the opening act for a belly-dancing show.  This was my second time working for this particular group and they were a terrific audience.  Try not to conjure up images of me belly-dancing because I simply stuck to what I am good at.  Besides if I were to start belly-dancing all of my tricks would fly out of my pockets and somebody besides myself might get hurt! 

Now that I am back at home, I am working on a stage show and trying to finish my bar betcha book.  Plus, I have some other exciting projects that I will divulge in the near future… so stay tuned!
