My wife left me today?  Actually, it is NOT what you are thinking.  Mary, my wife, left for Georgia to visit and assist with care of her 92-year old mother.  I remained here to perform six Summer Reading shows in North Carolina.

We love our moms!  This past spring, I visited Breckenridge Elementary School in Fincastle, VA . It was their first live assembly in two years (due to COVID). We celebrated with Marcy Wohlford (librarian) and the fantastic students and staff during Read Across America week! I presented the Salute to Seuss magic show! I was so pleased to have my 92-year old mother spend the day with me. She is my biggest fan!  Over the years she has made most of the table drapes, curtains and cloth magic props that appear in my shows.  Thanks Mom!
