Silhouettes, Magic and Celtic

Well, 3D day at Celtic Park came and went and not much chalk was used.  I did turn up though and tried my best to beat the elements, but it just wasn't to be!  The rain fell from the heavens relentlessly and after ten minutes the weather finally won the contest.
I shall return though and raise some much needed cash for those starving souls in Africa.  I shall keep you posted.

By a strange coincidence, I was asked along to a Celtic dinner at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews later that same week.  I got the chance to meet and chat with some of the hospitality people whom I have come to know.  I also met past legends, George McCluskey and Dixie Deans.  They enjoyed having their silhouette cut.

It was a very enjoyable night.  
Talking of enjoyable nights, I enjoyed an evening of nostalgia earlier in the month when my old friends from the Scottish Conjurer's Association asked me along to their new home in Glasgow's west end to deliver a lecture on the art of silhouette cutting.  It was great to see all the old faces, and some new ones too.  It has been ten years since I was a member of this establishment.  They were all very receptive to the demonstration and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the night.
I was presented with a honorary year's membership, a club tie, a poem written especially for me and a large bag full of balloon creations that my granddaughter loved.  A massive thanks to all those 
talented magicians at the
