Happy Halloween MOM I miss you XOXO

Posted in Family Stuff on October 31st, 2010 by Paul Lee

Halloween was my Mom’s favorite Holiday she looked so forward to decorating & answering the door, she stayed close because in our neighborhood there were lots of kids, and the bell rang non stop.

This week 11 years ago I had the busiest week of my life, 21 shows, it was crazy to say the least.

My Mom was very sick. I had moved back home for about a month to help my Dad & Aunt Marie take care of my Mom. I still remember one day I called all my clients  for the upcoming shows and explained my dilemma. Each client was given the choice to hire another magician or wait to see what happened.. all of them said they would wait. I did have many of my magician friends on hold if anything happened that week.

My Circus Days

Posted in Circus Days on October 25th, 2010 by Paul Lee

I did work as a Ringmaster & Magician with the Franzen Brothers Circus.

I started in I believe in 1987 for a half season and again in 1988, and in 1989 & 1990 I was with the show full time. We traveled to over 30 states, and we were on the road 10 1/2 to 11 months a year, 2 show a day, in a different town 98 percent of the time.

I can recall that it rained 20 plus days in a row, we moved with the rain, it was a very difficult time. in between acts I would run outside of the tent and hose off all the mud, my boots were filled with water. I did have people come to me after the show telling me they noticed I changed my pants 1o or more time.. if they only knew.

Happy to be performing close to home these days. I do travel for show shows but not for months at a time any more.

Beautiful Day in October!

Posted in Uncategorized on October 24th, 2010 by Paul Lee

Wow what an amazing day it was today 77 degrees. I went out to the back yard & played with my 2 dogs Thurston & Bello, the cat Vincent was out for a little while also.

We tossed the toys around for a bit, I let Vincent back in the house. I layed back on the lawn and actually fell asleep with both dogs next to for about 40 minutes.

I hope there is GREAT weather on Halloween for all the Trick or Treaters.

If I get back in time from my shows, I will get in costume scare a few children & pass out Candy. The older kids every year bring their unsuspecting friends to watch as I sit very still on the porch….. wait until they ring the bell & stand up, it’s a funny scene. I DON’T scare little kids!

One mom told me last year as she walked up the sidewalk “if you scare my child I will kick your butt”

Waited an hour in line to see MY SHOW!

Posted in Magic Shows on October 22nd, 2010 by Paul Lee

Did a show yesterday & the client said “there is a guy in line that hired you over 25 years ago” It was a client, Mr. Potts that hired me several times & the 1st time I performed for him was at his daughters 1st Birthday, and she now has a child of her own. It was great to see him & better yet he remembered me and was looking so forward to seeing my show again, he was 1st in line for over 1 hour.
