Thankful Thursday #41
I am so thankful for so many things everyday.
It finally feels like Spring here and the sun is out. I have been very busy. I have a festival this weekend and I am trying to get everything ready.
I love festivals. It reminds me of carnivals, county fairs, and anything of that nature. Fun games, sometimes rides, and there is always some kind of magic.
I am thankful for magic. I think we all need that feeling of mystery and wonder. I love a good card trick. My dad has one that is so good. It's a long story and the way the cards go along with it is amazing. I need to get a video of him doing it. When I do, I will have to post it. It is the best trick.
I saw on the news about David Copperfield having to reveal his secret to a trick he has performed for years. I know someone got hurt and I don't know the details enough to even have an opinion on it, but it does make me sad he has to give it away.
My family, and I mean family consisting of aunts uncles and cousins and grandparents, went to Las Vegas a few times. On one of our trips, I was around 17 and we got tickets to see David Copperfield. A few of us got there early to get seats and a young guy came to our table and asked if I wanted to be in the show. That was a no brainer!
Copperfield asked a question in the audience and when I raised my hand like I was told to do, he picked me and I was given just a couple of simple instructions for on stage. He levitated me. I have no idea how he did it. It is a little bit of a blur. I always said he hypnotized me with his gorgeous brown eyes! After the show, everyone wanted to know how he did it, but I was just as amazed at everyone else. And, I got to go home saying I was in a Las Vegas show!
I might need David Copperfield to help me finish getting ready for Saturday. I have a lot of things ready, I just always feel like I need to have more. I am excited about the new earrings and necklace cards I got.
I will post pictures after the festival Saturday!
Also, speaking of magic and things, I am working on a store here. The computer is a big mystery to me, kind of like a magic trick, but slowly I am getting better at it!
I also have two new charms coming in! One design will be perfect for summer nights and the other is really "groovy." You will soon see what I mean!
