⭐️😲😮🤔Breaking news/Special Announcement⭐️: Thank you so much for 25 Magical Years (1999-2024).🎩🪄 Travelling nationwide to entertain for children's birthdays, adult events, and (favourite of all) fund-raisers for many of you fantastic folks, has been the fulfillment of a lifelong ambition.🥰 You can only imagine my deepest, most heartfelt gratitude for your support all these years.🙏You have made me feel lucky beyond words.🍀It's been said that everyone must know when to take a final bow, and to leave the stage.😌🥲As you can see in the attached pictures, the animals🕊🐇🐰 have been pretty wild and restless lately (‼️), so that was the first sign. Secondly, the rigors of travel🥺...spent virtually all of March on the road, performing in every corner and far away alcove you can imagine.🫠 Wonderful fun, though the schedule catches up with you.😐Having experienced some recent bookings literally for the children of folks who saw me as children themselves when first starting (❗️), felt it was time to finally pack it in. Time to explore other projects...first, a yoga🧘‍♂️ and meditation 🙏 retreat, and then specifically, writing some longtime planned books. 📚You know, 25 years, and 5000+ shows, is a good run. 🤗❤️So, with a contented, gratitude-filled sigh, and a rather heavy heart, announcing my retirement. 🎩🪄🫡At least, a transition. From Magic, into the next great mysterious Life adventure.😃More rhapsodic reminisces for you in the weeks ahead⚡️, with some pics📷 of career highlights.😇 In the meantime, for one last time, a tip of the Magic Hat to ⭐️YOU😁...you amazing Fantastical Friends, who have made it all worthwhile.👍👍⭐️THANK YOU.⭐️ From David Jolly "The Amazing Mr. J"...wishing you JOY and MAGIC, always.🎩🪄🕊🐇🐰🥰👍👍#APRILFOOLS!! #LovePerforming #LoveYOU #NotRetiring #NEVERRetiring#AvailableForBookings #Performing247ForLife #FullTimeEntertainer #FunGuaranteed #TravelAnywhere #AllAgesAllOccasions #BiggerAndBetterTricksOnTheWay #StillWritingThoseBooksThough #TheBestIsYetToCome ...

Thank You, Cape Breton!❤️🙏IMAGINE: Your little 3 year old boy has just been diagnosed with a rare eye cancer.😪 You repeatedly have to fly to another country (from Croatia🇭🇷 to Switzerland🇨🇭, where you don't speak the language, plus have to take time off work), for specialized operations, plus multiple regular follow ups. Heartbreaking.💔 To help a childhood friend during their hour of need🙏, Busy Lizzy Sweets has been steadfastly baking bread and sweet goodies, plus they held a 50/50 draw (get this: today's winner even donated her winnings BACK to the little guy!) all to help little Marino and his family. Rita Campbell kindly donated the use of Millville community centre near Bras D'or, and with yours truly already on the Island for performances over the weekend, we decided to organize an extra fundraising Magic Show!🎩🪄 And all YOU big-hearted folks came out in big numbers to support!🤗We raised about $1000, and even more importantly for the hard-working Croatian🇭🇷 family, we are sending from Canada the gift of Love and HOPE.🙏🕊❤️🇨🇦Hoping now that little Marino👶🍼 will grow up to know that a whole kaboodle of kind Capers came together to help him.✨️ And for the family to know that they are loved.☀️As the Magical Cape Breton author Alistair MacLeod once wrote: "All of us are better when we're loved."🤗🎩🪄❤️🕊⭐️👍THANK YOU, Everyone.👍👍Here is Marino's story, and you can still help here: www.gofundme.com/f/krn5ce-3-year-old-boy-needs-your-help?utm_campaign=p_lico+share-sheet-first-la... ...
