we may if lucky get in the next 2 more weekends, but then rainy season. And the curtain is coming
down on our time doing this together! So much fun for us to get to do this.

Now I know where the word "comeback" has its roots.

Nala, after working the past week,
polishing my truck,
changing oils,
tearing apart brakes,...'brokens';
I finally washed up my hands,
turned the old box on,...
and read this. 😕

Ling Ling fired ya, eh?

cmm,..
Someone once told me,
"The only thing that can keep a Street Performer,
from the next corner,...
is a broken truck."

Enjoy your next two weeks.

Do we still have a date for next year?
,....i hope to have the beast, up and rolling,..
shortly. 😊

your friend on the next corner,
Gallagher

That was really good Nala. I've seen you perform it once before in video and you still blew me away. I was wondering will Ling Ling still continue on after you quit. I thought I heard you say she's very passionate about magic but I didn't know if maybe you were more of a duet act

thanks!
when I told her I was going to have to call it quits, she said "you mean we have to call it quits!"
the fun and pleasure for us is that we are doing this together, which is something I never imagined we would ever do.

We just have a chemistry performing together, love! for magic and each other.

She's into Taekwondo, an acting group (Semi Famous Players) and horseback riding so
has plenty to keep both of us busy.

I'm sorry to hear that you will both be retiring. I love seeing all the videos you guys put up. Even seeing you guys on the screen, you can feel the love and energy in your shows

Thank you! ...

from the career of "couch potato" which was the direction I was headed.

Sad that this phase comes to an end. There is a time when the feet, legs, and back just say "enough!" and we are forced to listen. Now for the next phase of your magical life. Who knows what it may be? I am sure that whatever direction you take it will be fun and full of optimism! You are an inspiration my friend!

Yes! Maybe you can take a young magician under your wing and take him to the pitch and let him or her be the continuation of your legacy!

Hey I'm not sad! Of course I'd love to continue, but I've had a pretty good run. I retired from my
day job 14 years ago, performed regular shows while I could, and just kept adapting to what I could
handle. Busking was the final one, and I've had 7 years on one pitch.
Beautiful spot by the beach, wish it could continue but that's life.
thank you for your generous and kind comments. I won't be on the street much, but I'll do it for
whomever until I no longer can.

Nala congratulations on this part of the journey through life. Just like those before you and those after you we all reach the same point and be thankful for the opportunity.

Hey Nala,..rainy day.
I should be making beds and washing dishes...
But first,

We've dropped our Hat,
...passed our Hat,
Only twice (I swear!),
I sat my Hat flat.

Three times it's been run-over.
...too often kicked.
Four times forgotten.
....one time nicked.

It's kept my head warm,
...dry in the rain.
A couple of times,
..hid the throbbing,
of a cheap wine's pain.

It's held our fortunes,
....more important,
our thoughts.
It was home to our fleas,
our feathers and protz.

So much 'un-controlled',
'un-planned',
....'un-endowed'.
But for Ling Ling and Nala,
this once;
we take our Hat in our hands
........and bow.

. . , . . . . . , l. . . . . . . . ö. . . . . . . *. . . . . . .


Have a nice weekend, you two.
And remember:
"Old Buskers don't die(!).
They just drop their Hat for 'other' reasons."

Just picked up a new pair of "street" performing pants (special pockets) from my Tailor. I don't know if I'll
ever get to use them. But I will at least keep a hope, and a toe in the door. It's up to the ol'back
which just isn't cooperating.

Season ended, raindrops falling on our heads.

Hey Nala, you ever think of using a stool to sit down and busk? Maybe not the entire show, but enough to give your back a rest?

Actually Gary, It works better standing but with my one foot raised resting on a foot stool.

The Sun is out here (a bit) today, If it lasts, we booked 90 minutes from 2:00 - 3:30.
Weather here can change moment to moment

I've been following your thread, good to see you out there! 90 mins. is about my max though.
